Royal Flush "Worldwide" (1996)

Blunt Recordings seemed like it was poised to make an impact in the mid-90's...first, there was Mic Geronimo's "Masta I.C." which was second only to "Shook Ones" in terms influential NYC street-bangers. Then Royal Flush's "Movin On Ya Weak Production" and "Rotten Apple" dropped. It was Royal Flush's third twelve (three in one year) that blew the top off, though:


Royal Flush "Worldwide" (with instrumental)

This one dropped at the height of the whole NYC-Cali beef, and while "Worldwide" mentions the beef in passing (specifically in the intro), the focus is on how Royal Flush (and Queens) rips it. LES's beat shines here; the only thing that kept me from playing it more at the time was the low BPM that made it difficult to blend. Flush's delivery has a casualness about it that works well at this BPM, and it ends up being one of his best joints, period. Includes instrumental.
