Easy Mo Bee Brought Us Biggie, GZA, & Craig Mack. So Meet Emskee (Audio)
In terms of talented producers with ears for development, Brooklyn, New York’s Easy Mo Bee is one of the best. The DJ/producer helped cultivate the careers of The Notorious B.I.G., Craig Mack, and GZA. Additionally, Mo Bee worked extensively with Tupac during the mid-1990s, in addition to critical work with Big Daddy Kane, Cormega, and Miles Davis.
Perhaps the next artist in Mo Bee’s repertoire is Emskee. Em’ is a Bushwick, Brooklyn MC (and DJ) who has a true-school sound to him. Charismatic on the mic, Emskee flips words with precision, as Mo Bee hits him with a stellar drum arrangement. Two For One is the pair’s upcoming album on Fresh Pressings. They share a nearly 12-minute sampling of what’s on the album, which—in many ways—sounds like a 20 year-old LP that was cryogenically frozen, until now…
Easy Mo Bee’s been quiet lately. Is Emskee going to be a wake-up call?
