How 2 become a lyrical legend

I'm sitting here going thru email listening to Helta Skelta "Nocturnal," and it made me post the footage below. Helta Skelta in the studio at Line 5 in Amstedam freestyling for the radio to promote their new project D.I.R.T "Da Incredible Rap Team."

If you're unfamiliar with the group Helta Skelta is rap duo Rock aka Rockness Monsta and Ruck aka Sean Price. Helta Skelta is part of the Boot Camp Clik which is composed of groups Black Moon, O.G.C,  and Smif-N-Wessun. 

They rose to prominence in the 90's with singles like "Letha Brainz Blo," "Therapy," and "Leflah," off their 1996 album "Nocturnal" full of sharp wit and grimey lyricism. They went on to release Magnum Force in 1998 which had the hit single "I ain't havin that," featuring Redman, then took a break as a group until 2005 when they reunited on Sean Price's album "Monkey Barz." Since then the group has been touring non-stop and released their new album  D.I.R.T (Tha Incredible Rap Team) in 2008.

I've been a fan since the 90's because of their consistency and lyricism. I had the chance to do a track with Sean P. called "Who Dat Be" on my newest album "Grindin Muzik." These guys are real MC's the kind that say rhymes that make you wanna press rewind after hearing 'em.  If you like the videos below and want to own some classic Helta Skelta or the Boot Camp clik albums go to

Peace, Vinum
