This weeks match pits Black Moon's "I gotcha open"(remix) against Ill Al Skratch's "Where's my homiez". Both joints came out about 6 months apart around 93-94. Both songs sampled Barry White's "Playing your game baby", and i love both songs. BUT.....in my opinion L.G. Experience hooked the beat up a lot better for Ill Al Skratch, while Da Beatminerz just looped it. However, Ill and Al don't got shit on Buckshot lyrically. I'm split...Better song = "I gotcha open" Better production = "where's my homiez". CLICK ON THE PLAYERS FOR FREE DOWNLOADS!!!
