Brooks Buford f/ Sean P. of YoungBloodZ "Aim Ta Pleeze" (2003)
Album: 12" Release Producer: Mike Hartnett
As the South's hip-hop scene arose in the early 2000s, it was a peak time for unabashedly country rap music, and "Aim Ta Pleeze" is a forgotten gem. Jason Brooks a.k.a. Brooks Buford, is a member of Rehab, a Southern rock band with several major label albums and one modestly successful hit (2008's "Bartender Song," which reached No. 64 on the Billboard charts). He's also done some solo work, and one such project was a collaboration with the YoungBloodZ for So So Def back in 2003. The song is much better than it has any right to be, full of comical lyrics and a chorus worthy of campfire sing-a-longs.
