You know how there’s a verse that you hear that makes you scrunch your face up and automatically makes your head start bobbin’ like superhead at an industry party? Well Freddie Foxxx’s verse from M.O.P’s “I Luv” (from the LP “") does that for me. I remember when I saw this verse first. It was in The Source (before benzino tanked them) as that months “Hip-Hop Quotable”. Honestly I’d never heard of homie before I read about him in The Source. So after read the lyrics I made it my mission to hear the song. I actually heard it on a DJ Clue? mixtape before M.O.P dropped their CD.
I love beats that are hardcore, dirty and raw
I love takin niggas burners when they scared to draw
I love plottin on my enemies, I love to attack
I love beatin niggas down when they rhymes is whack
I love seeing emcees struggle to make
themselves something that us real niggas love to hate
It's too late, I love my Ninas and I love my fours
Blowin holes through the project doors in nine wars, nigga
I love the feeling, and the rush that I get
From stayin’ run the Rolex watch with the diamond begets
I love, how my life was intact without a deal
How I kept the newest chromes on my automobile
I love the fact that rappers make the dough, without a flow
Soft niggas, that I stain, like piss in the snow
I love the fact that I survived through the roughest of times
And break the mic when I want, with the roughest of rhymes
Its a luxury to see me emcee
Its so hard, this lyrical brutality, feed's a nigga's mentality
I love, when you niggas claim to be great
knowin your mob ain't never lettin shit, what the fuck is this?
Niggas bustin shots on New York, I get my vest on
Twenty rhyme clips in my mic, I get my bless on
Loan soldier standin on the front line, I fear none
Excuses that you give me for your lyrics, I hear none
You niggs ain't no real emcee's
You Sam Goody ass niggas can't write without suckin down trees
So I love, laughin at you niggas, while you clappin at me
I split your head shot from your man, while he's slappin at me
I feel the hits from your rounds
Your hollowpoints make a nigga wobble, but I won't fall down]
Foxxx is a monster hands down. He ain't afraid to go in on anyone! He had one of my favorite diss tracks of all-time called "Industry Shakedown" hence the name of this blog.
He also went at Rakim too..
"He said I'm 'not ferocious.' Who is he... People are only calling him a legend because of what he did with Eric B. Everything after that was wack. Nobody will say it to his face."
