Cheesy Rat Blues

Be clear, we originated all that brick shit. Rap albums today don’t sell what they used to shit. The proof is the pudding. XXL Raps Vol. 1. Released November 15, 2005. Thirty three thousand seven hundred and eighty six rap fans can’t be wrong. Truth be told, I’m still tight about this. Y’all cheap bastards let me down. Hex on you and all your ancestors.

Funk Flex’s promo push was still top notch though.

P.S. You ever noticed that that old LL song is almost a blueprint for 50’s “How To Rob.” The chorus goes “Just throw your hands in the air. And wave ‘em like you just don’t care. Keep ‘em there. You, run the jewels, run the jewels, run the jewels.” Damn, down and out Queens niggas get real sticky fingers when they’re poor, broke and lonely.
