Video: GLC, Cory Mo & Mistah F.A.B. – “Let The Pimpin’ Commence” (Behind the Scenes)

Maurice Garland catches up with Cory Mo, GLC & Mistah F.A.B on the set of their video for “Let The Pimpin’ Commence”, which is one of the better records of the year.  Yeah, I said it.  Cory Mo’s a beast on the production…looking forward to hearing more from him & GLC.  I guess they’re doing a mixtape together.

Fun Fact: Cory Mo expalins, but this song takes from DJ Quik’s first ever “Quik’s Groove” (the instrumental record he includes with every release) from his debut album Quik Is The Name.  I could talk about that album for an hour, but I’ll just say that it’s one of the greatest West Coast albums of all time.  But I doin’ nothin’ but claimin’ my city.  (I’d pay good money for that Kings hat he has on in that video)

Reno was going to premiere this new track at the Sneaker Pimps show tonight in Chicago, but he decided to drop it off with Timbuck2 instead.  It’s a nice record.

I’d like to first introduce everyone to the latest addition to FSD, our new intern Dallas Wright.  His first order of business was to interview with storied Chicago battle emcee and lyrical acrobat, Juice.

In Part 1, Dallas and Juice catch up in Hyde Park to discuss a wide array of topics, including Juice’s career, his history in the game, other freestyle emcees [see: Supernatural], how different regions define “freestyle” and his “beef” with another battle powerhouse, Rhymefest.

…Including Plaxico Burress and the shooting on the set of his upcoming flick, Just Right

He also loves ‘Ye’s verse on “Run This Town”. I think everyone agrees Jay got murked on his own record.
