    Speed, man! Little Brother? You’re going to mention “Shots” but not Speed, the song that got 9th “Threat” in the first place?

  • dafunk

    You missed “Nobody’s Safe” by EPMD sampled “Nobody wants you when your down and out”! and i’m not sure but Akinelye might have a song sampled from the Vagina Diner album!

  • Wiz?

    Seriously? Stop it, you’re trying to be Jimi Hendrix, it’s not working. Even your clothes, put on the chuck taylors & start smoking blunts…
