"I'ma count money while they rhyme," proclaims a pink Coogi-rocking Cam'ron in this vintage clip from BET's Rap City Tha Basement series. In lieu of #ThrowbackThursday, XXLMag.com had to dig into the YouTube crates to pull out this past footage of the Diplomats, in pure form, as they take over Rap City's freestyle booth. One of the key signature moments is, you guessed it, Killa Cam as he counts money and blows through his verse rapping "My AK was my AKA before my ABCs, that had me A-OK...four million from Def Jam and I ain't sold a record for 'em."

Ahhh...those were the days.
