Before they were “Grindin'” Malice and Pusha were painting vivid pictures of the highs and lows in the crack game. Over horns and the unmistakable hi-hats provided by a young Neptunes duo, The Brothers Thorton project a grim picture of the reality of the drug dealer persona that so many champion. This was over 15 years ago, to say The Clipse were ahead of their time is a gross understatement. The world was not ready for Exclusive Audio Footage, luckily in the digital age the project eventually saw the light of day. Peace to Skipp who got me reminiscing on “Funeral” the other night.
