Raekwon & Snoop Dogg Are Still B-Boys, Celebrating Hip-Hop’s Elements (Video)
Raekwon and Snoop Dogg may be in Rap’s ruling elite. However, these early 1990s alums still capture the music as they fell in love with it. “1,2 1,2” is a standout moment from The Chef’s just-released F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art).
Produced by Get Busy Committee’s Scoop Deville, the Isaac Hayes-sampling, loop-driven single gets a video. Turntablism, breakin’, skateboarding, and fly fashion are profiled and demonstrated on the studio set. Raekwon and Snoop show that they can be money-counting, manicure-getting B-Boys, still in love with H.E.R. after all these years.
Note the fitted caps chosen by these two MCs who were running in the same circles, 20 years ago, as those involved in the East-West beef. Hip-Hop has come a mighty long way.
Is “1,2 1,2” the strongest song on F.I.L.A.?
