In 1990, this guy Grand Puba was that guy. Swag’s a word seldom used around these parts but Puba Maxwell had it in spades. 120 Lessons mixed with slick, street talk accentuated by fashion namedrops before rap made it passé.
This is one of my fav Grand Puba songs off all time. He was just showing off his many flows. It’s too bad that we won’t really appreciate him until he is gone. Been a fan since his Master Of Ceremony days.
The god had so much style & finesse on the mic. Reel To Reel got major play in the ride back in high school…made me wanna rock some Girbauds & play soccer w/ the dreads! I remember there was supposed to be a Lord Finesse produced Puba LP in the early 2000s that never materialized.
