The Friday Posse Cut: Big L - Da Graveyard ft. Lord Finesse, Microphone Nut, Jay-Z, Party Arty & Grand Daddy I.U. (Prod. Buckwild)

This is well known as one of the greatest posse cuts of all time and with good reason. Over Buckwild's haunting production Big L lays down one of his greatest verses ever and my personal favourite of his.
'A tech nine is my untensil
filling n****s with so much lead they can use they dick for a pencil'
It's nice to hear Jay-Z back when he was a bit more 'hype' as well and had the ability to switch his pace up. This tracks main feature though is it's energy. All six verses are delivered so well and manage to maintain this abundance of energy without resorting (too much) to generic rhymes, i.e M.O.P.
If you die and come back I shoot your spirit
now your ass is just a holy ghost
Big L > Jay-Z > Grand Daddy I.U > Party Arty > Microphone Nut > Lord Finesse


Rating: 9/10

Further Listening: Big L's debut, Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous, is a must hear.
