    At first I thought that Parliament's Chocolate City predated Skin Tight but my crates proved me wrong. But I got another one from an earlier album which happens to be the only Ohio Players I have left on vinyl.

    Now you know we got a young crew up in here! Skin Tight and all that stuff. In order to know the Ohio Players we got to go back to their first cut...."Funky Worm"....then their second cut called "Pain".

    Here's an Ohio Player song he (grand son)might be familar with.

    ''Ecstasy''

    Jay Z feat. Biggie Smalls was spittin back and forth over a
    Ecstasy sample loop for those who don't know.

    In a song called Brooklyn's Finest

    with an added bonus for your grand son's grand pa

    "Sweet Sticky Thing" a song I think, (don't hold me to that) that was inspired by the women on their album covers. I know that I'm thinking about those models on their covers as a I'm grooving to that track.




    Enjoy
    :em3200:

    Oh what the heck,
    here is a YouTube clip composed from a collage of Jay Z and Biggie, videos To look an authentic Brooklyn Finest music video.
