M.O.P. and First Family have been around for 25 years. However, Billy Danze and Lil Fame (who now only goes by Fame) started making some serious noise when they crossed paths with DJ Premier in the early 1990s. With the Brownsville, Brooklyn duo’s rugged microphone assaults, a Premo scratch-chorus only complemented the gritty bum-rush.

On “187,” Mash Out Posse is downright murderous with Premo back on the cuts. Fizzy Womack (Fame’s production alter-ego) lays the beat, which in actuality, is a strong homage to DJ Cash Money & Marvelous Marv’s intro to “Ugly People Be Quiet.” Something about Tears For Fears and M.O.P. just works, as Fame and Billy fire off this lyrical murdergram.
