1. SEE, HEAR: M.O.P. Perform “Ante Up” at The Source Hip-Hop Music Awards (2001).

    The Mash Out Posse unleash what is arguably the greatest East Coast street anthem in the history of rap muzik (we dare you to tell Billy Danze and Lil’ Fame otherwise… we sure the hell wouldn’t) at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach for the third Source Awards. Nevermind the crazy sound mix and even crazier editing (show producers seem to have cut together pieces from different moments in M.O.P’s set, hence all the cross cutting between throwback jerseys and Fubu gear), this is one banger that can make anyone go nuts.
