killer in the kitchen

As mentioned here in the past, this Trife is not the same rapper down with Ghost or Biggie. Sometimes, the best rhymers don’t surface for various reasons. This self-titled song was recorded in 2007, produced by Trife. We’re excited to present unreleased music from the Long Island MC who has recorded with Pete Rock, Roc Marciano and the U.N., Megalon aka Tommy Gunn and others while holding it down in the 90s rhyming in ciphers with other noteworthy MCs. We look forward to new recordings this year. Thanks Trife.
