Craig Mack’s style definitely was some brand new flava in my ear back in the day! When Craig arrived, I remember believing what he said about himself bringing new flava, but I don’t remember the context anymore. What I do remember is feeling that his style was completely different and that it was tight!
What sticks in my mind more so than Craig’s flow was the beat’s bassline. Even though I only have vague memories of it! Do I sound crazy? My memories are vague, but strong concerning this song’s flava! I was (and still am) a bassline connoiseur. I love me a heavy bassline–that thumpin, boomin, liver quivering bass sound, but I hate when it’s distorted!!! It’s gotta be clear and deep!
Now the thing about it is that I never even bought Craig Mack’s CD/album, so the only time I got to hear this Flava was when I happened to catch it on the video shows. And I can count on two hands how many times I actually heard the song. Thus all the fuzziness and vagueness in my mind about it. But the memory of that bassline is still in my brain, though it’s becoming fuzzy right about now as well! I need to hear this song on a good stereo system before I forget it completely!!
Anyway, not too long ago, I did a post on comedian Maronzio Vance who was straight clowning P. Diddy/Puff Daddy! He joked that every artist that Sean Combs got his hands on soon mysteriously disappeared from the music scene, never to be heard from again. Hmmm…
Where’s Craig Mack at?
