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"

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

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.
