84. Ghostface Killah f/ Method Man, Raekwon, & Superb "Flowers" (Original Version) (2001)
Album: Bulletproof Wallets
For some reason, this version of "Flowers" was replaced by what some consider the weaker re-working that appears on the album. Both cuts are musically based off of "Take Me to the Mardi Gras" by Bob James, yet this earlier effort resonates with deeper and richer vibes. Superb, sounding like a weird distant cousin of Ghost, wins with his short number of bars, kicking, "I'm not a gangster and I hate thugs too/I'm just a nigga that paints a picture without a paintbrush, too."
