I’m voting for anything with OC though so I’m biased.

That beat speaks to my soul and Chubb set it off with a perfect verse.

But that's not to knock the OG. Give me both tracks on a deserted island and I'm good.

Preem went in on that beat.

Just saw that it's finally on Spotify. Love this track.

Can't even think of a song that could challenge it, if it qualifies.

We busted endless freestyles to this instrumental... on wax.

As if Jeru wasn't already killin it, he just feasts on this track. Plus OC and Chubb Rock. Everything about this record is perfection.

If only for those snares. Just wow.

But 'Return' is dope in its own right. It's more melancholy and I think that's for the best. If Return was just Crookyln, Part II, it wouldn't have held up after all these years.

This is an unfair question though. Both are undeniable classics, but I prefer "Return". I did a report on "Return" for my high school English class. I had the cassette single, and played it all the time.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

In the first Crooklyn Dodgers song, the three artists had two verses apiece. On the second version, all three only had one verse apiece.

Not a fair comparison IMO.

I think if you prefer production, you like the original but if you like lyrics you prefer Return.

Both are nothing but dope.
