Music You Missed Vol. 2

For the second installment of Music You Missed, I went all the way back to the year 2000. For those of you who remember, there was a track that garnered some decent radio play at the time by Dynamite Hack. It was an acoustic cover of Eazy-E's "Boyz-N-The Hood."
It came off of the album "Take a Bite Outta Rhyme: A Rock Tribute to Rap." Most people were content with the Dynamite Hack tune and didn't dig any deeper on the album, which is a shame. One of the best songs on the album is a cover of the Run-DMC song "Sucker M.C.'s" by The Lordz of Brooklyn (now just The Lordz) with Stoned Soul and Everlast. Darryl McDaniels -a.k.a DMC- has called this his favorite cover of any Run-DMC song to date, and with good reason. The Lordz took a great, old-school rap song that was largely based on the sound of programmed drums and turned it into a well-crafted acoustic song with a bit of electric guitar edge to it. Everlast's gritty vocals are the perfect accompaniment and the end result is a new song that stands on its own merits.
