Brooklyn Zoo "Masters of Zooniverse" (1995)
The 12" contains two versions of the same theme, basically just shit-talk and bigging up Brooklyn/Zoo York/the Zooniverse/etc. "Original Brooklyn Zoo" is the stronger version; the energy of the production and posse of MC's can't help but propel this into the realm of hype-f*cking-shit. You gotta chant along with the chorus; it seems like the whole world is anyways. Love the low-key vocal sample underlying the production.
"Masters of the Zooniverse" is essentially the same lyrics, re-recorded with a new instrumental, which is tight (simple piano loop with lots of sound effects) but tones things down a bit. Still dope, though.
Includes the two cuts mentioned, as well as instrumentals for both.
