Styles P - "Nobody Believes Me" (feat. Cross, J-Hood, & Sheek)

David Styles, better known by his rap-moniker "Styles P," is a vastly underrated rapper.  The D-Block/LOX/Ruff Rider emcee has been doing his thing since '94 and is a staple of the underground gansta rap scene ever since.  This song, off of his 2002 solo debut A Gangster And A Gentleman, reminds me sonically of Scarface's classic "On My Block" (released a few months earlier), although they deal with vastly different subjects.  This track witnesses the LOX members (plus Cross, minus Jadakiss) personifying and holding discussions with items from their everyday life.  It's an often overlooked classic.
