Next Up and The Symphony

That late 80s/early 90s era of rap/hip hop music was maybe the best with the "wow" factor with the introduction of the posse cut and the first ever rival crew wax battles. I guess it was because it was a "Marley Marl and the Juice Crew" thing...c'mon Marley Marl, Mr. Magic, MC Shan, Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Craig G, Intelligent Hoodlum (Tragedy Khadafi), Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, Masta Ace, Roxanne Shanté, TJ Swan, "Cutmaster" Cool V...who could top that at the time? How Marley got with UGK (Pimp C & Bun B) for their 2007 album I'll never know. Either way the UNK album is a 2 disc set—that's like 80 bazillion songs on two discs—so I'm glad that this is one of the cuts making its rounds.
