Hip-hop is an ever-evolving genre that has been shaping the music industry for over four decades. It has been a platform for voices to be heard, and for stories to be told. One of the names that have contributed to the evolution of hip-hop is Rampage and the Flipmode Squad. Recently, they appeared on Sway In the Morning alongside Busta Rhymes to talk about their legacy in hip-hop. The interview was a display of pure passion, talent, and an appreciation of the art form.

The Flipmode Squad was formed in the early 90s by Busta Rhymes. With Busta Rhymes as the lead, the group includes emcees like Rampage, Lord Have Mercy, and Spliff Star. Rampage, who is from Brooklyn, joined the group in 1996. With his smooth flow, witty rhymes, and charismatic persona, Rampage quickly became a fan favorite. Together, they produced hit records that still resonate with hip-hop lovers today.

In 1997, Rampage released his debut album “Scouts’ Honor… By Way of Blood,” under the Flipmode imprint. The album was a critical success and peaked at number 47 on the Billboard 200. The album featured hit singles like “Wild for da Night” and “Take it to the Streets,” which further cemented Rampage’s reputation as a top-notch emcee. The raw and unapologetic nature of the album is a testament to Rampage’s ability to convey his life experiences through his music.

As a group, The Flipmode Squad was able to maintain their success in the industry by collaborating with other successful artists. They worked with top-notch producers like Pharrell Williams, DJ Scratch, and Pete Rock, to mention a few. They had collaborations with the likes of Mariah Carey, The Notorious B.I.G, and Mary J. Blige. Rampage and the Flipmode Squad’s “I Know What You Want” featuring Mariah Carey and Busta Rhymes became a commercial success, topping music charts globally and earned them a Grammy nomination.

In the Sway In the Morning interview, Rampage talked about his journey in the industry. He spoke about his early influences and his relationship with his fellow Flipmode Squad members. Rampage also talked about his transition from being an emcee to being a producer.

Hip-hop is an art form that has grown to be more than just music. It’s a culture, a way of life. Rampage and the Flipmode Squad’s contribution to the culture can’t be overstated. Their legacy in the industry will remain forever etched in the hearts of hip-hop lovers. They have paved the way for a new generation of emcees and producers who are inspired by their story.
