as another St. Lunatics or P$C (read: shitty
groups being put on by their superstar friend) - you'd be quite mistaken. After
being featured on Raekwon's Lex Diamond Story some
years back, the group has finally debuted with Polluted Water - and
what a supporting cast! Busta Rhymes, Method Man,
Three 6 Mafia, Pimp C
and others show up for the affair, and let's not

anyone's guess, but the Flipmode General
sounds great on the track, as does Raekwon. Don't count Icewater
