Not too long ago RePPiN4U put out an article on Hip Hop’s caped crusader – Bruse wane with his monster cut – ‘Return Of The Spitters’ featuring Fam-Illy and Keith Murray. Now Bruse is keeping up that momentum with a new freestyle over a classic instrumental.
Remember your first reaction when you heard Notorious B.I.G.s Who Shot Ya? Mind Blowing wasn’t it. So mind-blowing that when it was originally released it didn’t make it on either of his critically acclaimed albums Ready to Die or Life After Death, but Ready to Die was re-released in 2004 and bonus tracks were added, such as ‘Dreams’ and of course, ‘Who Shot Ya’.
Bruse just had to bless the classic instrumental with his own freestyle and explains his love for the classic track: “I’m currently in the process of compiling classic beats for my impending Earl Manigualt Of Rap mixtape,” says Bruse. “The ‘Who Shot Ya’ beat was always one of my favs and a banger, so I hopped on it to give my fans something to zone out to.” He says Earl Manigault will feature “a lot of never-heard-before songs from my early years with the stories behind them, along with narrations done by myself, and some current freestyles.“
Classic tracks are usually not to be messed with again, but in this case, Bruse Wane has done B.I.G. proud here.
