’My slow flow’s remarkable, peace to Matteo
Now we smoke weed like Tony Montana sniffed the yeyo
That’s crazy blunts, mad L’s
My voice excels from the avenue to jail cells
Oh my God, I’m droppin shit like a pigeon
I hope you’re listenin, smackin babies at they christening ..
Ok, I got it, so that Matteo is Matteo Capoluongo aka Matty C. , the guy who started the “Unsigned Hype” column in THE SOURCE mag, very influential column and crucial to a lot of rappers at the dawn of their careers. Took me decades to confirm who that was !! Lol I actually first heard that freestyle on radio around ‘97 coming back to NY after months around the southern hemisphere, still mad weak having caught a stomach bug that drained me down to 150lbs from 180 a few months earlier.. Hearing that freestyle gave me mad energy back, for a few at least :)
