This dude was the definition of legend. You could easily give him the GOAT crown for consistency alone. What other stand-up comic stayed at the same top notch level for 30 years?

Yesterday was a good day. Think Cube fuckin' round and gettin' a triple double (LOL at Cube keeping stats in a pick-up game).
As I sat with E Double and one third of Nesian Mystik (all Lakers fans may I add) to watch my team dish out the biggest finals destruction of all-time, I got the txt to say me and a group of mates had secured tickets to the MC Gusto show.
There are a few people in the world that make me laugh consistently when they speak. Michael Jackson, Ralph from the Simpsons, Mike Tyson, my mate Hamish, but none as frequently as Chris Rock. Amped son.

Heres the original version of "Miss You".
PNC - Miss You (premix) DOWNLOAD
Jordan from Fire & Ice sent me this early on in the beat-sourcing process for Rookie Card. It was one of those joints where I instantly knew I wanted to use it and what I wanted it to be about, but (and all rappers know this struggle) the sample was a massive song, in this case being Brian McKnight's "Anytime". Suffice to say we got denied for the clearance and had to go back to the drawing board.
I hit up Chong Nee, the only dude I thought could do it justice, and he came up with another nice piano backdrop and the chorus. P-Money wasn't stoked on the remake, so me and 41 sat down and put in some what he called "bad boy shiny sounds" and in the end I thought it turned out as good if not better than the original.
This song was simultaneously the hardest and easiest song to write from Rookie Card. Hard because you never really want to bring all those feelings up again and confront them, easy because once pen hit pad the song basically wrote itself.
