Easy Mo Bee Career Retrospective

3 Jan

MOS is probably going to, well, hate me for this. Especially considering that we’re literally talking right now about not posting artists’ music without their permission on MichiganHipHop. But SpeechIsMyHammer is solely my baby, I figured I’d make an exception for once.

In an AllHipHop story published last month, legendary producer Easy Mo Bee expressed how upset he was that he was dismissed from his role in compiling the score for the upcoming film “Notorious” that chronicles the life of the late emcee Biggie Smalls. According to the article, he won’t even be portrayed in the film. Dude was pissed, and I can’t blame him: Easy Mo Bee was one of the first producers that Biggie hit the studio with, and their work together spawned several standout tracks from Biggie’s seminal debut Ready To Die. It’s interesting how this entire thing is coming together – Diddy and Faith Evans are credited as co-executive producers of the film, while Lil Kim and Easy Mo Bee have both expressed discomfort with how it was handled. Really reiterates how it wasn’t a black and white situation at all, and how his death affected people in so many different ways.

But I digress. Someone heard the news, and took it upon himself to scour forums and assemble a group of people to upload a lion’s share of Easy Mo Bee’s catalog with other artists. And homie’s got some classic records under his belt: he’s collaborated with 2Pac, Busta Rhymes, Big Daddy Kane, and even Miles Davis. EDIT: At the recommendation of MOS, I’m instead posting a link to dude’s discography. Not only because it could possibly put more money in Easy Mo Bee’s pocket by telling ’em what to cop, but because a lot of these (esp. the Pac records, or the Craig Mack records) are records that you probably have anyway, but didn’t realize he did. But it’s time that someone aside from The Game and the heads on OkayPlayer get their hip-hop historian on.
