Grand Daddy I.U. Still Talks Slick In This P.I.M.P. Freestyle (Audio)
Cold Chillin’ Records was the label home to the Juice Crew, and all the individual stars like Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, early Masta Ace, Biz Markie, and Roxanne Shante. “Fly” Ty Williams’ label was also home to GZA (as the Genius) and Grand Daddy I.U. The latter released two LPs in the ’90s, heavy on the hardcore Hip-Hop/Reggae fusion, ill breaks, and that mafioso style that was also used by Jay Z, G Rap, and others.
I.U.’s still at it. The Queens, New Yorker is plugging away at his Paper Is My Priority LP. Also known as “P.I.M.P.,” the onetime homie of Big L and KRS-One producer drops a freestyle of the same name over-top David Porter’s break made famous by Biggie Smalls.
