+1: Fabolous “Real Gangsta’s Don’t Play” (2007)

Junior Reid has made a lot of cameos over the years. So much so we had to go into overtime to acknowledge some honorable mentions. This track, off Fabolous’ 2007 album From Nothin’ To Somethin’, is another addition to the deep canon of reggae-inspired Brooklyn hip-hop anthems. Reid’s presence inspires Fab to chat bout Caribbean women (specifcally a “sexy pair of Bajans,” who he goes on to call “Bahama mamas”) and reference Ninjaman’s “Murder Dem” (or at least Foxy’s reference to it). But the track really belongs to Reid, who’s given a full minute at the beginning and end to do his thing.
