    Uptown Saturday Night is so fresh, sometimes it makes me angry; I will never create or do anything as cool as that in any creative medium. And “Coolie High” is one of the smoothest, freshest joints on the album. “Black Connection” is also sublimely good, the way they flow over the track, especially at the beginning of the first verse; To me, the only flow that’s comparable, as far as bobbing and weaving around the beat, is Ghostface on “4th Chamber. No disrespect to Ricky D, KRS-One, Rakim and all the greats, but cats really perfected the smooth flow in the 90s.
    My only wish is that Camp Lo had gotten more success – they deserved it, along with Ski. Ski did better beats on their album than he did on Reasonable Doubt, and Lo’s rhyming skills were arguably better than Hov’s, which is saying a lot!

    @ mike, Jigga adopted from their style quite freely when they both worked with Ski. Lowah always been them niggas. Stone and Rob and Another Heist is my favorites. They were simply too cool to blow. Real Heads respect and I think that’s all they want.

  • Mike says:

    @Hodges Well said. Lo definitely gets respect for bringing the original slang, the outrageous style, (one time I saw ‘em live and Suede had on leather pants and a straw farmer’s hat and he rocked it,) and that lovely 70s soul/Blacksploitation vibe.
    I think it really hurt them to wait 5 years between albums though.
