Second verse, same as the first. Enjoy some more Bun B features.
CC Waterbound f/ Bun B - "'Bout 2 Go Down" | LimeLinx
from Critical Condition (Starvin' Artists, 1997)
CC Waterbound was a very short-lived trio, made up of rappers Will Chill, Money, and Tech, out of Morgan City, LA. Critical Condition was their only album, as most of them ended up getting locked up.
While the trio's raps are solid (but not especially memorable or anything), I'm not exaggerating in the least when I say that the production on this album is damn near flawless. But I suppose that's to be expected when you have beats courtesy of Mo B. Dick (of Beats by the Pound fame) and Pimp C. It's shame that the raps couldn't match up with the level of the production; it would be a classic otherwise.
This particular track, titled "'Bout 2 Go Down," is one of the Pimp C productions on the album. He provides some sung vocals on the chorus, and obviously, Bun B drops in for a guest verse.
DJ DMD f/ Bun B, Lee Masta - "Holdin' Fire" | LimeLinx
from Eleven (Inner Soul, 1997)
"Holdin' Fire" is a rare collaboration between Bun B and DJ DMD. I say "rare" because it was usually Pimp and DMD that made tracks together. This particular track served as the lead-in to DMD's debut album Eleven. I won't waste too many words here, since I already talked quite a bit about DMD and his relationship with UGK in my previous post.
However, I didn't really talk about Lee Masta in that post. Unfortunately, I couldn't really find any info about him, so there's not much to talk about. I know that he was a part of the DMI Posse that included DMD and Pimp C, but that's about it. His Discogs entry only lists two appearances—both of them on DMD's first two albums—and then nothing else.
Servin' Tha World Click f/ Bun B - "Said 'N Done" | LimeLinx
from Shippin' 'N Handlin' (Style, 1999)
I think this is one of those rare tracks that Bun rapped on that had Mannie Fresh production, but wasn't a Cash Money release. These Servin' Tha World Click guys are from Nashville, TN and this particular album was their sophomore album. Their previous was a self-titled joint in 1997, and their third, entitled Supply 'N Demand, was released in 2000.
Stony Deville f/ Bun B - "Holla If U Want It" | LimeLinx
from Ackin' Badd (Heavyweight, 2000)
Being a rapper outta Houston, it only makes since that Stony would get a Bun feature on his album. Like a lot of other rappers I've talked about on this blog, this was the guy's only album, at least as far as I know. I'm not sure who produced the track, but it's definitely got a clubby vibe to it. The production is all right, Stony's raps are solid, but not especially memorable, and it has a pretty obscure Bun feature, so it's worth a listen or two.
