Flipmode Squad - The Imperial
You see this one here? This one here really gets me so hyped. It’s one of my favourites. Every track is a winner for me, lyrically. Busta Rhymes for me is one of the best spitters on planet earth when it comes to clarity, speed, different zones. Any track he’ll just beat it down and on this album you could hear the rest of his crew. It’s got Spliff Star, a lady called Rah Digga and I think there’s one more, but this album was like one of the first albums I used to go in cars - like my boys didn’t even have a license - and we used to be in different cars, driving around and this album was one of the ones that really got man gassed. Busta Rhymes is definitely one of the greatest.
