" Golden State Warriors "
This song by L.A.'s Funky Town Pros (Just Another Toss Up) brings me all the way back to 1991 in a strange type of way......It's hard to believe that it has been over twenty fucking years since I first caught the video on Rap City.....
Devastating and Boy Wonder only put out one album on 4th & Broadway entitled "Reaching A Level Of Assassination".....The album is loaded with odd time signatures, stream of consciousness rhymes, and original stylings....There were talks of a follow up project, but for some reason or another it never saw the light of day......WHAT A SHAME..
"Just Another Toss Up" produced by Devastating....
Awhile back I heard another Funky Town Pros song after the Assassination sessions called "Fake Ass Hip Hoppers" on Kevin Beachum's His-Story mixtape........CHECK IN TROOP..
