Greetings World. It’s another Thursday, so I’m back with another addition of:
This time around I want to explore the best posse songs from years past. So let’s take it back 5 years.
It was 2010 and Eminem dropped “Recovery” which sold 3 million copies, making it the best selling album of that year.
GURU from Gangstarr died, TI went back to jail and Lil Wayne got out.
But the best posse cut of 2010 belongs to Kanye West. Off of the album
“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”
Kanye released the definitive posse cut of 2010 with “Monster”.
Featured guest include Rick Ross, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Charlie Wilson.
Scene stealing verse goes to Nicki Minaj.
This year Jay-Z had the rap game on notice with the “I Declare War” concert. Who would he diss? Some even when out of their way to diss him first. But he didn’t diss anybody. He actually made peace with Nas. Tha Dogg Pound also had a reunion. Suge Knight got shot in Miami and 50 Cent kicked Game out of G-Unit.
But for the posse cut of the year, that honor goes to Three-6- Mafia, 8-Ball & MJG and Young Buck with “Stay Fly”.
Scene stealing verse goes to MJG.
Oukast released their fourth album “Stankonia”, certified double platinum within two months of its release. Ol’ Dirty Bastard escaped from a drug rehab facility to perform with the rest of The Wu-Tang Clan. The Source Awards were shut down prematurely due to fights. Nobody saw that coming. Big Pun also died this year. But as for the best posse cut, I have to pick two.
First up being Snoop Dogg from “Tha Last Meal” with Lay Low featuring Tha Eastsidaz, Master P, Nate Dogg and Butch Cassidy. And production by Dr. Dre.
Scene stealing verse goes to Tray Dee.
Up next is Jay-Z’s “Change The Game Remix” featuring Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, Tha Dogg Pound and DJ Clue.
Scene stealing verse goes to Kurupt.
Ice Cube dropped the movie Friday. Andre 3000 stated that “the south got something to say” at The Source awards. Suge clowned Puffy for “dancing all in the videos” and basically kicked off the east coast west coast beef of the time. Also in 1995, Eazy-E died.
But for the posse cut of the year, I have to go to Mobb Deep.
Released on the critically acclaimed 1995 album The Infamous, The Mobb released “Eye For An Eye” featuring Nas and Raekwon.
Scene stealing verse goes to Nas.
That a wrap up of some of the best posse cuts from the past 5-10-15-20 years ago.
Let me know if I left anything out. Questions, suggestions and comments welcome.
