Man I remember when folks were real mad about HHI (RIP, LOL) giving a negative review to Little Brother’s first record. Given it was HHI no one should have been reading that shit anyway but the HII POSSIBLY RACIST DRAMA surrounding it was way more interesting than the hype would have been otherwise (zzz group brings back tribe vibe but with fruity loops beats??) which was good because the album was pretty solid w/ some real stand out joints on it too.
One of the standouts was “Speed” & it had this weird-ass video with ‘serious rap heads’ LB clowning girls on the bus who happen to like popular R&B. Also, there is a joke where Nelly is called “Smelly.” So bizarre. Don’t think this video has aged particularly well, song still sounds hot though.
