Living in the Past?

I like this

Last year WorldStar posted the “Roundtable Cypher” from Shades of Hip Hop #10: The Cypher which featued Mos Def, DMX, John Forte, Mic Gernimo, Big Pun and Canibus spitting 2nd Round K.O. for the very first time anywhere in public. This footage was shot on December 18, 1997, and still remains to be one of the most legendary rhyme cyphers ever recorded. But you don’t have to take my word for it, just because I was the one who shot it and put it out. The comments below speak for themselves…
