Raekwon, Killa Sin, KRS-One, & The Notorious B.I.G. – Stop the Breaks

My favorite Biggie verse, and on one of my favorite posse cuts, period. It’s off an obscure Ron G mixtape from the early ’90s. The beat is classic ’90s – party-boom-bap drums and a simple, funky bassline. I love the sleigh bells holding down the eighth notes. The verses are all perfect examples of each rapper’s style, and are all solid until Biggie comes in and blows everyone out of the water. Stuff like this is why everyone looks back on the ’90s as the golden age.
