Pretty Tone Capone - Case Dismissed / Kidnapped / Gangster Shit, Pt. 2
Harlem gangster, Pretty Tone Capone dropped this HARD 12" in 1992 on Ill Labels, Keys And G's Records. He's part of the infamous Harlem crew, Mob Style, along with Whip Wop, AZ, and Gangster Lou. The latter two rap on this single. All three tracks can be found on Mob Style's second LP, Game of Death. Tone handles the production on the top side while Money Mo$e$ holds it down on the flip. Bangers! My personal favorite, "Gangster Shit, Pt. 2" is uncredited, but it's the final track on the B-side. AZ, Lou, and Tone trade verses over an evolving layered beat littered with fat drums and familiar breaks. Check for Gangster Lou's N.W.A. diss penning them as fake gangsters.
