Throwback: Chris Mills – Sumptin to Groove Too

I am really not trying to post on Cavalier rappers everyday. I had this link emailed to me when Delonte West came out with his freestyle, and I didn’t even want to look at it because I knew I’d end up talking about it. However, I clicked on it yesterday, and couldn’t help but posting it today. You may have seen it before, but if not, here it is:

If you feel your day is worse for listening to that jam, don’t blame me.  Blame the music exec who felt it necessary to record and release a CD featuring 10-plus NBAers back in the mid-90’s.  If you didn’t like Sumptin to Groove Too – track 8 – maybe Jason Kidd’s What the Kidd Did might be more your speed, or possibly Isiah Rider’s cut, Junk in the Trunk.
