    Fuck it, a Wesley Snipes movement on a Sunday in Bermuda,
    We laptop niggas, thugs in a computer,
    Caught up in the grimy shit,
    Finding two days later a murder and we got to make this flight shit,
    It was a Wesley Snipes movement on a Sunday in Bermuda,
    We laptop niggas, thugs in a computer,
    A Wesley Snipes movement on a Sunday in Bermuda,

    “maria” is one of the best songs in the world.

    • oskamadison

      If you had to pick one joint, Mike’s greatest vocal performance was Maria. The soul he had when he was little was amazing, back when he was still drawing from James Brown, Jackie Wilson, etc. for inspiration. And you can tell he studied the hell out of all of them. Listening to all the MJ tribute’s this weekend (Premier did an ill one on his sattelite show Friday), you realize: he’s been a punchline for so long you forget how ridiculously DEEP that man’s catalog is. King of Pop, RIP…

    YN, what did AZ sell his 1st week?

  • Jet City

    don cannon used that “maria” for a slick pulla song

  • Chadillac

    That Walk On By medley

    thats definitely the underground “PSA Pt. II”

  • J-Rock

    Don’t forget that It’s Great To Be Here was also sampled by 702, Chris Brown, and I think Jim Jones.

    And is it me or does the opening organ riffs from Maria sounds kinda like the opening guitar riff to No Doubt’s Don’t Speak.

    I could be wrong on the last part.

  • SloMo

    That Walk on By is one of the hardest beats ever . . . it’s a lil surprising to imagine it coming from the Jacksons, instead of Isaac Hayes or some 70s rock band.

  • jessica
