Audio: Freddie Foxxx "Killa" (Featuring 2Pac)

Freddie Foxxx's Crazy Like A Foxxx was recorded in the early '90s in New York and intended for an official release by MCA. However, for reasons unknown, the album was shelved after promotional cassettes were serviced to radio and press. This newly remastered release includes both the 1993 demo version on Disc 2 and the 1994 completed version of the album on Disc 1. Largely written for the emcee's friends in prison, the album has ominous overtones and provides insight into Bumpy’s dark state of mind at that time period. The album is a veritable time capsule from the early 1990's, with guest spots from legends such as 2Pac, Chuck D, and Kool G Rap as well as production from from D.I.T.C.'s Showbiz, Lord Finesse, and Buckwild. Crazy Like A Foxxx is available from Fat Beats Records now.
