I absolutely love these throwback style joints with that mellowness. And another classic King Tee joint with Breeze and Ice Cube:

Coolio had some joints on that first album, especially. It's crazy how he disappeared.....he went from one of the most popular rappers and biggest stars out in 95-96(2nd album) to not even mentioned at all by like 98. Rap moved and changed a lot faster back then, he was a classic example of that 2-3 album run, and then you're completely over just like that. He's NEVER mentioned now either.

It's bugged to me how underground cats like Big L are known by kids who weren't even born when he came out, while actual pop-culture stars from back then like Coolio are obsolete. And I'm not complaining, Big L was a more talented rapper. It's just weird to me. Power of the internet, I guess.
