Camp Lo - Uptown Saturday Night (1997)
This is some smooth shit here, mang. Hard to really pin it down other than a super galactical, smoothed-out, coked-up version of "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" if Rae and Ghost were only describing the celebrations between drug deals. Their flows/voices are similar to Clipse, really, but the listener is left guessing about which they are talking, more often than not. But it sounds good. Interesting note about this is that, if you cross-reference this with Jay-Z's debut, Reasonable Doubt, you will hear a similarity in sound. Reason being is that Hov actually stole a few beats that were meant for this, overpaid the producers, then put them on his record, launching a "hundred-million dollar" career.
