Throwback Of The Day : Ma$e - 24 Hours To Live

Ya'll know I love the late 90s joints. And when you think about that era, Mase should be one of the first rappers to pop up in your head. That Harlem World album was big! It sold 4 million. Bad Boy as a whole was pushing crazy units at the time. For todays throwback, I had to choose "24 Hours to Live". These dudes was on their A-game. Mase,The Lox, DMX and Black Rob bodied this track.

I first met Dr. Dre in 1983 going into ’84. He was the most famous person I knew at that time [laughs]. He was in the World Class Wreckin’ Cru who just dropped a record called “Surgery.” Dre was the only person I knew who actually released an album, so I was excited to meet him. When he heard me flow, he took me under his wing. He would be at the house making records and I would help him write whatever I could to just get in where I fit in. Before N.W.A., we were in a group called C.I.A. We were on Epic Records and we had a song called “She’s A Scag,” which Dre used the Tears For Fears track “Shout.” It was a cool little song, but it wasn’t particularly hot, so we ended getting dropped from the label. Then we got on Crew Cut Records and changed our name to C.I.A., which stood for Criminals In Action. But the label didn’t want us having the word ‘criminals’ on our record [laughs]. So they made us change it to Crew In Action and needless to say we were mad about that shit!’
