Recognize The Real presents The Best Of Easy Mo Bee

Before i really knew who DJ Premier & Pete Rock were and what they did, Easy Mo Bee was my fav. producer comin up listenin to hip-hop. This man's sound was like a sonic explosion but he flipped it in many ways. Back in '94 when i 1st heard Craig Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear", i lost my mind!! That was the 1st song i can remember that i just fell heard over heels for. I thought at the time that was the hardest beat i ever heard!1 I must have jammed that repeatedly back in those days. Now the crazy thing is that Craig Mack wasnt the orig. recipient of that beat, Lost Boys was. Lost Boys was givin that beat and Craig Mack had "Lex, Coupes, Bimaz & Benzes" beat. Now the story goes is that both couldnt really do nothin wit was they was givin so Puff was able to work out a trade that worked for both parties. And speakin of Puff, he should give this man a lifetime's check for gettin his label off the ground with a distinct sound. He gave them a sound that propelled them to where they at now. Over the years this man's work been kind of overlooked but hopefully when u listen to this mix you will see he deserves to be mentioned with the all-time greats! Oh and it dont hurt that he produced tracks for BIG & Pac, and did a track with both of them together. I mean thats legendary status for me, i dont know whats higher than that!! Please give this a listen and give this man his props!

Of course he's up there with the best. Thanks for the mix. I think "make a move", "boogie down bronx/bk connection" & "game of death" have exceptional beats too.
