Lancecape got one of the craziest MC's he knows to rock on this. Grimace Love is a name you shall never forget. He went in and destroyed the beat. 36 bars of craziness. From top to bottom, Grimace Love flips his flow to accompany the rhythm. With a lyrical prowess that is not to be taken lightly. He is in a league of his own and nobody could have done justice to this beat the way Grimace Love did.
