“Too Much Posse”

01.03.09 9 years ago 29 Comments

I actually stumbled across this one yesterday after I got the email about the The Rub x 2008 mix. I didn’t mention it because I wanted to save something to give you all today. I rode to it last night on a late trip to Best Buy & it gets the thumbs up.

Back in the day there was a template that rap albums had. You had a dance track, a DJ cut, a slow jam for the girls, maybe a hip-house song, and of course my favorite was the posse cut where the featured artist would put on all his folks to get busy on the track. This is a compilation of some of my favorite posse cuts from that golden era of hip-hop. — Cosmo

We can place bets on which song is more phenomenal but my bet is on Cube, Kam & King Tee or “Buddy.” The personal sleepers are easily BDK with Scoob & Scrap & both Heavy D joints, since both are damn near forgotten at this point in time.

The real question would be what songs would you use for Volume Two of a similar compilation?
