What did you say your name was?

Here’s a classic to be be played loud and proud. I mean it, don’t play this on your laptop, spin this on some bombastic speakers that shake the very walls of your house otherwise you won’t get the full effect, the cracked foundations effect.

This is Jay-Z’s first recorded verse on a track. Ever. How does he do? He absolutely slays it. So do the other guys but you listen to H.O.V.A waxing lyrical and you can already spot the raw spark that is going to turn him into one of the most famous hip hip stars of all time. That beat is pretty damn tasty too and to think this was a slice from ’93 – I reckon this as fresh as most tracks nowadays. That’s the mark of a great cut.

Original Flavor – ‘Can I Get Open’
