N.O. state of mind

Master P, Silk and UGK - Playaz from the South

So it unfortunatley still looks pretty grim down in New Orleans and with them in mind I figured I would post some classic N.O. rap. P hardly hides his pride when explaining where he's from in this song. I would actually call this the definitive No Limit song. P sounds sneaky and suspicious in his flow, Silk is funny and UGK drop by to hang with their down south bros. The beat is excellent and very appropriate for this era of NL records. I would add that the bassline on this song is one of the craziest basslines in the history of recorded music. I was trying to find this a few weeks back when cocaineblunts did their feature on no limit because this was a key track that was left out. The song originally appeared on the Down South Hustlers compilation which is undoubtedly a milestone in New Orleans rap music. Also need to mention that it appears the impossible will finally be taking place as Cash Money and No Limit will team up for a 10-city Hurricane Katrina benefit tour. No word on if they are collaborating on a combination "uggghh/birdcall" signal at this time.
