Piece Of The Pie/ Gangsta Groove
12" Vinyl Single Record
Connecticut rap veteran Stezo is best remembered for his Paul C. engineered snag of the Skull Snaps "It's A New Day" breakbeat for his golden age classic "It's My Turn." Not many people know that Stezo's cousin Dooley O is actually the producer who discovered the break, and was to use it for his "Watch My Moves" (issued for the first time on STH 2051) before Stezo beat him to the punch. Of course, the two beefed about the use, till an even bigger one came down the pike - a beef with EPMD, Stezo's former employers (he was their dancer - yeah, there was actually a time in hip-hop's history when that was cool). The result, "Piece Of The Pie," features Stezo and Dooley going off on Erick and Parrish and, though the song never saw the light of day when the beef was thickest, we can feel the heat on the grill almost twenty years later.
