I’ve been listening to a lot of No Limit recently. Thanks in part to this list from Complex. One song that has been in constant rotation is “The Ghettos Tryin to Kill Me” by Master P. From Complex:
“Master P was a very different artist in his Richmond, CA days, more West Coast in both sound and subject matter—which is to say he was a by-the-numbers gangsta rapper, but he mastered the niche. The title track from his second album was a remorseful street saga and may be evidence that P was a stronger writer back when he was able to focus on it, before all the mogul-ing got in the way”
This past weekend was pretty boring for me so I queued up some movies (old and new). I decided to watch Menance II Society since I hadn’t seen it in a minute. I heard a song that sounded similar to “The Ghettos Tryin to Kill Me” so I checked the soundtrack and I found out the song was “Top of The World” by Kenya Gruv. This song is a slow jam while Master P’s edition is more of a tale of the streets.
