My personal highlight was the track "Little Young" by Masta Ace and Edo G off there album Arts & Entertainment. By no means a track to raise your kids too, but in its fashion a strong statement about the current predicament of hip hop culture. The only two artists that they dissed for having 'little' in front of there names that I don't agree with were Little Brother (one of my personal favorite groups) and Lil Fame of M.O.P. (also a favorite group, although for an entirely different mood). Otherwise, the song really hit home, and I'm just thankful that an artist (in this case a duo) had the balls to say what a lot of hip hop lovers are thinking. (The Craig G and Marley Marl song I played goes along in this vein as well).
