Flashback Video of the Day: Chubb Rock, O.C. & Jeru The Damaja

This is a classic 1990s era DJ Premier produced Hip-Hop track with MCs Chubb Rock, O.C. & Jeru the Damaja on mic duty.

This song is from a pretty decent ("C+" to "B" grade, my personal opinon) Spike Lee movie, Clockers (it's not as good as School Daze or Malcolm X at all, but the movie is WAY better than WTF types of filmmaking mess from Spike like Girl 6 and She Hate Me - I'm still mad I spent money to see the latter for real).

Everyone absolutely murders their respective verses on here and doesn't do the "I'll just say some bulls*** and coast because the beat is fantastic" action.

Personally, it alternates between Chubb Rock's and Jeru's verses in terms of which is my favorite depending on my mood (young, gifted & black with mellow annoyance - Jeru's; young, gifted & black and ornery - Chubb Rock's).

All of these brothers still make their appearances on the Hip-Hop music scene - and aren't embarrasing - now with guest collaborations on singles and recent self-released album material (O.C. and Jeru the Damaja mainly, I think Chubb Rock is working on some new full length stuff).

Besides this song, the entire Clockers Movie Soundtracks are high quality - the jazz score version by Terrance Blanchard is off the chain and on the soundtrack compilation Chaka Khan's "Love Me Still" is a great R&B track along with solid joints from Seal, Mega Banton, Des'ree, Marc Dorsey and others.
