BIG MIKE – DEAD OR ALIVE PT. 3

I just want our fans that have stuck by us from day one to know that I am still a HIP-HOP purist. Believe me, I never thought the day would come when I would have to attach my name to one of the “MASTERS of THE PAUSE TAPE UNIVERSE”. Yes, it is true, BIG MIKE has created a classic. I know some of my loyal fans are reading this and your already getting prepared to send me some hate mail. Well, “I’LL TAKE ALL YOUR BULLETS MUTHAFUCKAZ!” This CD is one of those projects that you ride around to. If you don’t believe the GOD, let me hit you with just a couple of joints. NAS & P collaborate on “TICK, TOCK” produced by the ALCHEMIST. NAS hits us on the second track with that killer shit “THIEF’S THEME”. These two tracks alone would make this CD worth it, but wa-wa-wa-wait it gets worse! JIM JONES, THE GAME, and SANTANA get together for the “ROUND HERE” remix. I can’t begin to tell you how much it pains me to say this, but BIG MIKE put together some of the hottest tracks without a great deal of bullshit! I’ve never been that excited about JAE HOOD, but the freestyle he does over the “ONE LOVE” instrumental was exceptional. He may never be able to make a worthwhile album, but he may be able to rock a best of CD. There were other joints, but as I always say, “I’m not going to give you the whole fucking track listing”. Pardon, there was one other that I had to mention; FAT JOE, REMY and CAM truly are in a “NY STATE of MIND”. Mike must have to shake a lot of hands and kiss a lot of asses for these tracks, but I’m glad he did! BIG MIKE, this is a PAUSE TAPE CLASSIC!
