Best One-Man Street Teams (2008)

L.I.F.E. LONG, CREATURE, AND UNKNOWN

New York institution Percee P hightailed it to Cali to play in Madlib's bomb shelter, leaving an MC-size hole in the sidewalk in front of Fat Beats, the primest real estate for demo-peddling rhyme-spitters. Luckily, nimble rhymers like L.I.F.E. LONG, CREATURE, AND UNKNOWN have been spending hot days and rainy nights selling excellent CD-Rs to Sixth Avenue's headphone-clad pedestrians—these hard-working rappers make Mike Jones look like a trust fund kid backpacking around Europe.
