Special Ed


Special Ed born Edward Arche (Brooklyn NY) held hip hop down at an early age. Ed was only 16 when he droped his debut "Youngest In Charge in 1989. "Think Abot It" was my mutha f-in JAM...wit that Rakim sample...god damn...pure HEAT. At 17 he droped the classic album "Legal" with the bangers "Come On, Let's Move it " & "Mission". This cat disappeared for the next 5 years only to re-up on the Brooklyn classic "Crooklyn Dodgers" along with fellow Brooklynites Buckshot & Masta Ace.
If you don't know his stuff....now is a good time to peep it. Ed was & always will be one of my favorite artists of all time. If there was a hip hop "Hall Of Fame"....dis cat would be in on my first ballet...no doubt!

ha ha now this is too funny, I pulled out his first 3 albums last night and was jsut thinking...has there been anyone smoother than Ed and what abot Howie Tee's timeless beats...man oh man, I never heard the Still Got It Made album...but I was told to give it a wide berth...I did like the first single off it though...do you remember his crew The A.R.A.B.S.?

yeah,

I always liked his freestyle coloured rhymes. Some of them were hilarious.

I enjoyed (and still do 'enjoy') his stuff a great deal.

cheers m8!

Wasn't Malcom Jamal Warner from the Cosby Show somehow involved in "Im The Magificent"?

I also remember Ed was in the movie "Juice" for like 2 seconds as the new dude that Raheem's baby mama was ridin with.
