blame it on Meka February 7, 2009


I’m not really a fan of “tributing” rappers (especially on the days of their passing), but it just wouldn’t be right if today passed without recognizing one of the greats of the past. Big Moon Dog in his prime was that rare breed of “upper echelon MC” who had the ability to battle rap and make good songs and make a good album (Canibus should have taken notes). And while his way-too-short legacy will forever cast doubt over his “Top *insert number*” status, you can’ tell me that Capital Punishment wasn’t along the same lines of Illmatic/Ready To Die classic status. Enjoy some of his greates moments under the cut.
