Alter Ego: Tony Montana


Pretty Tony Montana

Cormega feat. Ghostface: "Tony/Montana"
from Legal Hustle, Vol 1, Landspeed Records, 2004

One wouldn't expect the pairing of Cormega and Ghostface to be as dynamic as this single, but both step their game up--especially Ghostface, with his rapid fire opening verse, reminiscent of a Big Pun "middle of Little Italy" delivery...must be heard to be believed. Cinematic strings, and a soulful chorus round out the song before Cormega drops a QB street-level gem.
"You'll be missing like them crazy Christians
And swimming with all the fishes
Your misses will come and visit your body with hugs and kisses"
-Ghostface

"And I'm back with a vengeance
Like Sprewell smashing the Knicks
after they shipped him despite the fans resistance"
-Cormega

J-Love's remix called "Come On" is even better. He flips the "Sugar Ray and Hearns" for it.

Oh word. I caught this "Tony/Montana" song off a Landspeed compilation, since I ceased with Mega after the lackluster "True Meaning." But from what I hear, "Legal Hustle" is a step up.

"The Testament," of course, precedes all that, and should be part of any QB rap collection.
