White Chalk Part II (Reference Verse)

Mixtape Memories, Music, The Good Old Days

Damn, son. Twenty years since Biggie was murdered. Fucking sucks.

But today is a day to celebrate his life, so I pulled out this unreleased reference verse Biggie laid down for Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s song “White Chalk Part II” for you all to enjoy. Not sure many rap fans have heard this one—I just discovered it for the first time a few months ago. Shout to DJ Capone with the exclusive. Listen/download below.

Rampage Rarity

Mixtape Memories, Music

Long Island Rap Blog, the same folks responsible for this sick Roc Marciano radio freestyle I posted a few days ago, just threw up this rare studio session version of one of my favorite rap songs ever, “Rampage” by EPMD and LL Cool J. On this version—which comes from a hard-to-find DJ Scratch EPMD mixtape—we get two LL verses and an alternate beat. Shit’s dope.

Listen above, and download the whole tape HERE.
