Shamus "Tight Team" (1997)
Production was handled by Buckwild, back when he was one of the top producers in NYC. Don't know what it was specifically about this track, but for some reason it reminded me of "Shook Ones Pt. II". Maybe the sparse, biting snare and persistent hi hats, combined with the dark sample. Lyrically, Shamus (and Flu) are tight; the flow and voice are solid, and work well with Buckwild's beat.
We come together like the pieces of a puzzle, to paint the illest picture
It's sort of like the prophets that unite the holy scripture
Your game's sicker, you need blunts for painkillers
For rilla - I'm Ghost like the Face Killer
Includes the instrumental.
