RahSun & Big Pun "I'll Be Around" (Reissue)


I can recall back in '98 when I came across RahSun's "I'll Be Around" maxi-single CD. I caught the feature from Big Pun & copped it on the strength but as soon as the baseline moved my speakers, I knew it wouldn't be a purchase I'd regret. Of course, Pun tore through the track with his ferocious flow & while I never copped RahSun's LP, "It's Not A Game," I probably would have it if I had come across it soon after I purchased the single. Lyricist Lounge threw a show in NY around the same time with Rah, Eminem & even more raw talent just passing through to show out on the mic. Years later now, a re-issue has been posted online of the maxi-single & the "It's Not A Game" LP. You can stream the track below & props to Joe for holdin' Pun down on the pampers.

"My Twinz already know, 
I'm always amped and ready to roll
Lendin me dough for Pampers when it was twenty below
That's how I know who to trust
That's how I know for who to bust..."
