This is my personal salute to Osten Harvey Jr. b/k/a Easy Mo Bee, one of the most overlooked geniuses of hip-hop production. His name never seems to get brought up when talking about the all time greats like DJ Premier, Pete Rock and 9th Wonder among others. I’d like to change that conversation. I honestly could have done WAY more than ten, so we may need a revisit.

1.) Craig Mack – “Flava In Ya Ear”

2.) Notorious B.I.G. & Method Man – “The What”

3.) 2Pac – “Temptations”

4.) Notorious B.I.G. – “Machine Gun Funk”

5.) Notorious B.I.G. – “Going Back to Cali”

6.) Busta Rhymes – “Everything Remains Raw”

7.) Notorious B.I.G. – “Gimme the Loot”

8.) Das EFX – “Microphone Master”

9.) GZA/Genius – “Life of a Drug Dealer”

10.) Lost Boyz – “Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz”
