Word up, that's some rare 1984 classic joint, this fellas learned Biz Markie what naive hip hop is.

99 EPMD - The Big Payback (with NWA!)
PMD & Eric Sermon at the shooting range with N.W.A's Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren...
It's a shame NWA & EPMD haven't collaborated on a song, but at least we got a video.
