The entire Bronx is quivering with anticipation for tomorrow's release of Fat Joe and Remy Ma's collab album Plata o Plomo. Nearly 20 years ago, Joe connected with Big Pun on what may well be the greatest song in the history of Bronx hip hop, and certainly the greatest collaboration between two Bronx rappers: "Twinz (Deep Cover 98)."
A cover of Dr. Dre's debut solo single "Deep Cover 187," "Twinz" testifies equally to the staying power of Dre's production and Pun and Joe's ferocity on the mic. Bronx, and the rest of humanity, will be blessed if Joe and Remy Ma can channel the "Twinz" magic on their album.
Dead in the middle of Little Italy, little did we know
That we riddled two middlemen who didn't do diddily
I support Pun in anything he does, anything he loves
My brother from another mother sent from the above
A thug nigga just like me, one of the best – might be
Even better, leaving niggas kneeling on they right knee
