"It's not what you know, but who you know." That being said, I give you My Brother's Keeper, recorded by Lake, featuring Cormega. That tagline alone should tell you what's up - a relatively famous emcee trying to make his unknown friend known.

We could
talk for days about monster artists who have gone back to the hood to get their
boys. Sometimes it has lead to rock solid catalogues (i.e. Beanie Sigel), other times, culturally iconic phenomena (see: 50 Cent and the Guerrilla Unit), and, on occasion, things were unfortunately... a
little 'bleek'. But the fact remains, it happens. Everyone needs help, and as
we've all heard before, "It's not what you know, but who you know." That being
said, I give you My Brother's Keeper,
recorded by Lake
featuring Cormega. That tagline
alone should tell you what's up - a relatively famous emcee trying to make his
unknown friend known.

You should
know who Corey is; you should know
he's from Queensbridge, you should know the stories about him and Nasir, and most of all, you should know
how dope The Realness, The Testament, and The True Meaning all are. But who's Lake? The truth is, I
didn't know before I heard this record. I didn't know he was on God's Son, yet this was still a highly
anticipated album for me. Mission
accomplished. The fact that it actually says featuring Cormega
