You know a song is a classic when it succeeds at taking you back to that specific moment in time. MC Shan, great job with the story told. You gave many Queensters the pride to represent the typically forgotten borough. "Corona the owner"
NOLA native. I remember hearing this for the 1st time on WBLS 107 while visiting family in BK. KRS 1 on KISS 98 battled back then. Classic!

Anything MC Shan is classic. Left me lonely one of the first classic old school rap ballads. Cannot be replicated ! New rap is mostly garbage.
