An embarrassing thing I used to do was argue on SPM youtube videos about how bad I thought he was. Years later I still wonder how he had such a cult following.. I'm no longer hating but he seems like such an acquired taste.
I've never really found hispanic rap to be very impressive and being Mexican I constantly heard it all around me and it was just meh.
I must've heard Kid Frost's La raza a biliion times as a kid too. Brings back good memories.
Also good to hear the Scott lays down the law with your rebellious hip hop dudes and your marijuana.

ODB had a few "on the phone" songs/versus.
Shine did one when he was popped for that diddy shit
X-RAIDED recorded like 20 albums behind bars...
Really interesting stuff.

Yo, I felt awkward, even as a listener who wasn't in the room, when Jeff asked Nocando if Pun was the best latin rapper of all time. The answer, in my opinion, is absolutely. Did Nocando dodge that 'cuz he didn't want to offend Scoop after he went on about how his dad is OG and really, all around respected?
I love some old school Kid Frost and he deserves credit for being a pioneer and hard a as hell, but Big Pun was more relevant to me and was an absolute lyrical beast who had incredible potential, but died too soon.
