[Vintage Goods] Smoothness (1992) x Black Rob (prod. by Dan The Automator)


Long ago, an unknown Robert Ross aka Black Rob linked up with producer Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, now of Gorillaz fame, to cut a demo album.  This album has all but disappeared aside from this song, which later appeared on Dan’s Wanna Buy A Monkey? mixtape.  Black Rob has always been a low-key favorite of mine and his work outside of Puffy’s camp was always dope (i.e. two rugged appearances on CRU’s classic Da Dirty 30…please stop sleeping on that album).  Enjoy this rare gem.
