    It's a good watch.

    Flava in ya ear was better than juicy.

    I never compared the two.

    Juicy was a monster cause it had mad commercial appeal to it

    But Flava in your ear was a straight b-boy classic

    C/S the bold. Anytime I hear the song or the beat I go right back to 94.

    Me too, especially since me & my brother took an unplanned, last minute trip to NYC that summer to do some back to school shopping.

    I remember listening to Hot97 (back when it had a good reputation and was hiphops premier radio stn) on my bro's car stereo.
    Flava in your Ear was a monster, and was everywhere that summer.

    To this day, I still got an actual cassette mixtape (Dj Showtime: Mortal Combat), that i bought when i was there, from a street vendor in Harlem.

    *Flava in ya ear is on that mixtape, but Dj Showtime did a horrible job cuttin it up though. It sounded like an amateur was scratching. Everybody I played it for was like "wtf?", when it got to that part of the mixtape.

    The good ole days

    I first heard it in 94 when this cat from Queens went home on leave and brought it back on this DJ Silva Surfa mixtape, but dude was cutting that shit up something wicked. Everybody on the boat dubbed that tape

    ...I watched this last week and I didnt know Craig Mack was basically EPMD's little dun before Puff...E. Sermon said Craig was arrogant as phuck...You can also tell from the documentary Craig thought he was nicer than B.I.G. on the mic...C'mon son...

    "Just...like...uni-blast!!..."...wtf...

    Apparently he was saying "Uniblab"...a character that appeared on the Jetsons cartoon....thats how he explained it anyways.

    ..it makes sense, since his boy is on the intro saying "Kick that old robotic, futuristic George Jetson shit"...."Just- like-UniBlab"

    " Just-Like-Uniblab"

    Yep, they dropped in 93-94, countless joints back then. And think, these cats were my age at the time and dropping dope shit as compared to what young people are dropping nowadays.

    Does this mean Craig Macks showing up on drink champs?

    Im still trying to figure how juicy was a classic. Shit was garbage to me. It must be a nyc thing

    I bet you know all the words

    I remember reading a Lord Finesse interview. He said when Craig Mack got signed to Bad Boy he didn't buy a car. So he was riding the subway while Flavor in Your Ear was a big hit on the radio.

    I think the fact that he didn't buy a car with his advance money messed his career up. There's only so much you can do without a car.

    LMAO this nigga retarded

    Yeah, that fact was known that he was trying to get on with EPMD at first

    Yup, even Craig's dj "4-5" was EPMD's dj on there first album, but he went by the name Dj K La Boss
