With the emergence of T-shirt, Action Bronson and Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire it seems the mid-90′s flow and cadence is seeing a reprise in the blogosphere. It’s undeniable Brooklyn’s The Boot Camp Click, were among the most influential rappers when it comes to the mid-90′s-hardcore-New York-sound. Smif-N-Wesson aka Cocoa Brovaz aka Tek and Steele released ‘Da Shinin” in 1995. “Wreckonize” was the second single off, what is deemed as, a classic album. Just look and listen to what they did to a “Just the 2 of Us” sample. Will Smith didn’t have to curse in raps to sell records but him and Trey didn’t have this kind of street cred — better recognize.
It’s amazing how Tek looks pre-tattoo with his rolex ring and polo shirt. He was swagged out before they called it swagger. Speaking of swagger, don’t Steele and Hodgey Beats resemble each other? SWAG.
