Klashnekoff - "Black Rose"
Album: The Sagas of Klashnekoff Year released: 2004
Unlike its American equivalent, there aren’t many good sounding love songs in U.K. hip-hop. Still, Klashnekoff achieves just that over the top of a glittery beat that uses sexy vocals from Stephanie Mills’ '80s ballad “Something in the Way," with one verse about love (Klashnekoff definitely took inspiration from Tupac’s "Do For Love") and another mourning the loss of his father. Emotion and experience pour from his words, just as they do throughout the rest of this whopper of an album.
