Crooklyn dodgers

Science dropped by Martini & Jopparelli. Nov-14-2006

Here we are with a classic track : Crooklyn. This song was recorded in 1994 for the soundtrack of Clockers , a Spike Lee’s movie.The producer is Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest.The three mc are : Buckshot of Black Moon , made man Special Ed and music man Masta Ace.They went together only for this track under the name of The Crocklyn Dodgers.So , I consider two of them , Buckshot and Masta Ace , two of the best mc ever. Special Ed is a great one as well but maybe is not comparable with them.Buckshot has a terrific and unique flow. He blew up with Black Moon in Enta da Stage , the first act of the BCC saga.Masta Ace is a man who comes from the Cold Chilling old school period and is still actively making music with the same freshness and the same great results. He has never made a bad album up to now. Comparing him with most of the others old school mcs who started right and then turned wreck , makes me say he is a genius.The production is fat. And the video is true. No bullshit about it.The song is part of the soundtrack: Croklyn  Music from the motion picture.( Volume 1 )The compilation includes others good tracks from Curtis Mayfield , Sly & the Family Stone , The Jackson 5 and many more. What can i say more , watch the movie , it’s a nice one.

    this is like what hip hop should be today, this is such a great tune with probably the best combination between producer(q-tip) and mc’s(ace, buckshot and special ed)…the secon one was great as well, with oc,chubb rock and jeru and primo behind the boards…the third one with 9th wonder,Mos Def, Jean Grae, and Memphis Bleek is just disappointment(i think memphis bleek cant rap at all and it’s impossible to make comparisons with great mcs as ace and buckshot), that just show the state of hip hop now.
