Now at this time, hip-hop was still hot but started to decline drastically after this year. But 2000 was a great year in hip-hop 2 me. And these 2 emcees is partially responsible for that. Shyne came thru in promoting his LP that about to drop. "Bad Boyz" at this time had every rotation on lock! I still bang this song like its brand new. I remember being NJ in early '00 with my boys, and its late night and we ridin around listenin to Hot 97. Funk Flex then played 2 new songs so people can get preview about these artists new tracks. The 1st song he played was Ja Rule's "Between Me & You", then the 2nd song was Shyne's "Bad Boyz". Now this was about 2-3 months before these songs even came out. When we 1st heard "Bad Boyz" we was bangin our headz hard. That was a ill time. So back to this show, then Black Rob comes thru is support of Shyne. Remember his joint "Whoa" was the jam just a couple of months earlier. So this a very great show, cause they both also kicked some ill freestyles!
