Under Appreciated

Buckshot....there's a lot I could say about this dude. Towards the end of golden era Hip-Hop, he and his crew BCC, embodied Brooklyn. The string of hits he put out in such a small time span is nothing short of astounding. They weren't just hits either, but straight up classics. Think "How Many MC's" or "Buck'em Down" or all the crazy B-sides that weren't on the album. My point is, people take his contributions for granted. He didn't invent harmonizing, but he sure mastered the art of it and his flow was impeccable. I think Ja Rule and 50 surely need to partially credit him for their successes because he fathered a lot of what made them popular.
