I know I've been slacking on this series but I promise it will be back to full force from here on out. I originally was gonna come in here with an Atmosphere joint but after a brief conversation with an old high school buddy I realized that there are still a ton of folks out there that have never heard this record! Taken off Sway & King Tech's 1999 release, This Or That, with DJ Revolution. The bonus comes off the same album as well. Enjoy.

BONUS: Underground Tactics f. Heltah Skeltah, Crooked I & Planet Asia | Mediafire

    YES!!! I remember buying the maxi-single that had the instrumental and the acapella haha... even the acapella was tight those guys laid it down... but Underground Tactics... man Crooked I's verse on there is still one of my top 5 fave verses of all time... and that's the song that made me a fan!!! "I could give it to you but what wuh-what what!"

    underground tactics is bananas!!!!! everybody comes with their a+ game, but then planet asia buries 'em. sounds like dude is rhyming to a different beat when he hops on the track.

  • Big Mike

    This was my shit! I had this album edited and uncensored. lol Favorite song: 3 to the dome ft. Chino XL, Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap

  • Big Mike

    Chino said "God came in the vocal booth and said nigga, you the next me. So test me. Battle and you will become a dead man. And there's a lot of fake Chino's like Craig Mack's a fake Redman. But I'm above the surface of this rap circus, write more incredible verses on accident than you can on purpose"! lmfao!

  • Big Mike

    Chino XL, Kool G Rap and Big Daddy Kane - 3 to the dome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OFyQSq1SYM

    IMO the best Anthem + probably the greatest Hip-Hop collabo EVER!!! you ain't never gonna see a line-up like that again, and yeah everyone went in on both The Anthem and Underground Tactics, Sway & Tech reppin that REAL Hip-Hop

  • dez

    classic... best posse cut ever

  • PimpstarP

    The Anthem is fire...but aint this a west coast show...the original Wake Up Show anthem is a LA classic.
    WAKE UP SHOW Anthem '94 (LAURYN HILL, NAS, ORGANIZED KONFUSION, RAS KASS)

    then they got the Anthem with Crooked I, Sly Boogy, Ras Kass and all them
