Very pleasant surprise…these two tracks emerged yesterday, both featuring a “Hit Em Up” era 2Pac going off at the entire East Coast rap scene (yes, he even calls out A Tribe Called Quest & De La Soul). I would estimate these were both recorded in ’96..and both are pretty dope, making it pretty weird that they never made their way onto a posthumous 2Pac compilation or any DPG album. ‘Watch Ya Mouth’ features some vicious lines, but I’d say I prefer NY 87 overall…two of the most underrated West Coast MCs ever (DJ Quik & Kurupt) both go off. These are both great additions to any Pac fans’ library so check em out.
