FT from Street Smartz came out with Metal Thangz in 1996. Â We cherished that joint for years, both for O.C.‘s and Pharoahe Monch’s collabo and for the promising newer artistÂ FT, who’s bars were crazy, plus he had a co-sign from two already established giants. I still have the vinyl.Â All 3 verses on the original could get a hip hop quotable, in my opinion.
I don’t know about the new one yet, I just listened to it once and now I’m throwing it up here. I’ll let you all decide.
First up we got Nature & Fat Joe’s version. This is off FT’s newest mixtape “The BROOKLYN BEAST”
