SON OF SAM feat. MASTA ACE & LARGE PROFESSOR: Come A Long Way (Vinyl 7″)

SON OF SAM feat. MASTA ACE & LARGE PROFESSOR:  Come A Long Way (Vinyl 7Son Of Sam – haven’t they come a long way eh? Haven’t they done well? They’ve gone from all those original hip-hop instrumentals that got shelved for a few years, to hooking up with a slew of emcees from the cream of the underground (old and new) who still practise the art of rhyme and then finally dropping album Cinder Hill last year and before you know it, it’s all been appearances
