The Harlem kid with the flashy smile, aka Mason Betha, aka Ma$e, changed the landscape of rap during the “jiggy” era of the ’90s. He had many people in a trance with his laid-back flow, and knack for dancing with Puff Daddy. One of the records that cemented his place in hip hop history came from the soundtrack for the Chris Tucker movie Money Talks, and later ended up on his 1997 album Harlem World.

Complex dissects the making of Ma$e’s 1997 hit “Feel So Good” on the latest episode of their Magnum Opus series, which features appearances from Puff Daddy, A$AP Ferg, Jadakiss, and more.

Brooklyn, New York City. Home of fancy coffee shops, expensive condominiums, and trendy neighborhoods. But in 1995, Brooklyn was not synonymous for “gentrification.” Back then, Rudy Giuliani was Mayor of New York and he was in the midst of a serious war against crime. In 1995, Giuliani’s New York registered its lowest crime rate since the 1970s. From 1,156 homicides then to roughly 300 homicides now, the Big Apple has come a long way.

In the heart of Brooklyn stood the “Doghilee,” stomping ground for the crew known as the Boot Camp Clik. BCC, which helped spearhead New York’s hardcore rap scene, was comprised of four unique groups: Black Moon, Smif N Wessun, Heltah Skeltah, and O.G.C. Emerging with Black Moon’s seminal debut album, Enta Da Stage, BCC cemented their status with Smif N Wessun’s debut, Dah Shinin.

Released January 10, 1995, Dah Shinin is celebrated for the synergy between Smif N Wessun’s two members, Tek and Steele, and the cohesive, gritty production courtesy of Da Beatminerz. In 1998, The Source placed the album in its list of 100 Best Rap Albums.

There’s no doubt that the signature thump of the TM88 Drum Kit is one of the backbones of popular music. From it’s placement in classic songs such as “Planet Rock” to new school music from Atlanta and New York, the sound has survived decades in an ever changing musical landscape.

In the new documentary titled 808, director Alexander Dunn explores the origins of the iconic drum machine by talking to the people that made it popular. The movie is set to feature appearances from Pharrell, Lil Jon, Phil Collins and Diplo, who describe the importance of the drum machine in their music and within their respective genres. Check out the trailer above and stay tuned as 808 is set to drop some time in 2015.
