    He sounds waaayyy more like the X we know, here.

    The first song in the OP sounds like a unfinished Rakim song.

    I'm just glad X was smart enough to drop that Rakim style of rapping and found his own style becuz that earlier style of rapping was extremely played out (nationwide) by the time The Chronic came out.

    I noticed post Chronic nationwide (NY, The South, West) a lot of people's original styles developed. They cut that 80s umbilical cord completely

    @FreshAIG I think Kool Moe Dee coulda lasted longer if he stopped rapping like he was in 1986 all the time:mjlol:

    His homeboys shoulda kept their ears to the streets and let him know to stop rapping like that haha

    disagree
    I think Moe Dee overachieved

    his rap career success is one of the most unlikely events ever, if you think about it.

    He was a contemporary of Grandmaster Cas and Melle Mel, yet he launched a second act when both of those guys had already passed the torch.
