    Merchant.

    The original Crooklyn Dodgers comprised rappers Buckshot, Masta Ace, Special Ed with A Tribe Called Quest manning the production. The hit song was a lead single to Spike Lee's 1994 movie Crooklyn.

    In 1995, Chubb Rock, Jeru The Damaja, O.C. formed the Crooklyn Dodgers 95 and released "The Return Of The Crooklyn Dodgers" with DJ Premier on the beats.

    The Dream Merchant will be released through Six Hole Records, a label owned by Desi Relaford of the Baltimore Orioles.

    Relaford also released Pooh of Little Brother's solo album and the affiliated group Justus League's album as well.

    9th Wonder's opus is slated for an early August release and the producer said he has a purpose in mind.

    memphis bleek...seriously? (feel free to quote and add the other rapperes involved in place of 'memphis bleek')

    Pretty ambitious for a dude who makes music that isn't

  • YES!!!!!!

    I can die happy. Somebody listened to my dream collabo!

    I've been waiting for that Jean Grae and Memphis Bleek team up for soooooo long

  • why


    Seriously! and dude isn't even from Brooklyn.

    I won't front though, if he made music that was really good I'd probally be on some "DON'T HATT YOU HATTERS!".

    Personally, I am excited to finally find out whether Mos or Memph is the better lyricist.

    Too close to call???

    To be fair, Premier ain't from Brooklyn either...
    They could have at least tried to get some decent rappers on this though.

    Word..Mos is cool, not a fan but I do enjoy singles here and there. Jean Grae, never really heard anything that I liked by her aside from her early stuff (What What). Memph Bleek, c'mon dogs....he's a notch above "Drag-On" or somebody.

    so who should the next 3-man Brooklyn lineup be?

    I propose MOP and GZA. And since the producer apparently doesn't need to come from said borough, let's put DJ Quick on the beat.
