Troy Ave – “A Bronx Tale” (Video)

That Brooklyn Bwoy Troy Ave may represent heavy for his New York City borough, but he just dropped a brand new video shot in Miami & produced by a world famous black & italian DJ from the Bronx. I love when Troy Ave flows over the right type of beats like this one that the world famous DJ Kid Capri crafted. It sounds similar to one of my favorite tracks from Troy Ave called “My Grind” that dropped a year ago. In case you didn’t know, the street inspired “A Bronx Tale” appears on Troy Ave’s latest release “Major Without A Deal” project that’s out now.

Classic Clips: Lamont “Big L” Coleman (May 30, 1974 – February 15, 1999)

This is one of my favorite joints from the late Children of the Corn and D.I.T.C emcee Big L, “Put it On” produced by the ever hype Deejay Kid Capri.It is a bit disheartening that his murder still remains unsolved , as he was destined for mega success as rumors of a Rock-A-Fella signing loomed. In my opinion had Big L singed with “The Roc” Jay Z might not have been what he is now, with L at the time being the more polished and lyrically gifted emcee(check any of the old freestyle with the 2, Jigga is fighting to keep up with Big L most of the time). With all passings of our legends lets focus more on uplifting and appreciating our greats while they are still alive…..
