Video of the Day: The Juice Crew: "The Symphony"



This track will probably go down, in my humble opinion, as one of the greatest posse cuts of all time. Whenever I see some random collaboration, Lil John, Nelly and MC Pantywaist, or Chingy, Yung Joc, featuring Lil ball-sweat, I have to laugh because I'm sure they all feel what they are doing is a collaboration pushing the art-form forward. Depressing thoughts aside, I've always been the biggest fans of both Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap. When I was younger I thought Kane had the better verse with "Put a quarter in your ass cause you player yourself!!", but now that I'm older I feel that Kool G Rap has the better verse. Come on, "Making veterans run for medicine, turning out more light in a fight than Con Edison!", masturbation couldn't beat that.

I got this one on my blog too.

I sooo wanted the ladys (in the red dress) hairdo back in the day....The only thing I don't like about this video is that they cut the best part of BDKs rhymes.

This takes me back to freshman year in high school at the football games. Me and my homeys thought we were the new Juice Crew. I still gotta give BDK the top lyric on this song. "cuz when it comes to money, yo Grant's my nigga"

When I was a kid, i always thought Kane had the hottest verse too, but your right - Kool G wins hands down, even with the lisp.
i listen to this and "the bridge is over" everyday.
