Damn The hotboys affected me the most. They were single handedly the soundtrack to my highschool years. Mannie's production and humor, Juvies (then) cool alcoholic off the porch flow and observational delivery. B.G. had that thick drawl and and lookin back was probably the illest and most consistent lyricist skill-wise.
Lil Wayne,even then you just knew dude was gonna become the most popular out the group at some point. Dude had a style that was instantly recognizable that bought a lot of energy to Fresh's tracks, with all the sound effects and wittiness. Turk had that Blunt but hype style of rapping. Definityl the man to get when you need to start off with a vicious first verse because he'd come out tough
I didnt mind Baby spitting a few bars back then cause it just made that whole fam vibe feel real and he would drop some game every now and then.
what ever happen to that n*gga Papa Rue who use to sing them reggae bridges on them OG albums. Last I hear of that n*gga was "Tight Whips" with master P and them
