HIP HOP CLASSIC VIDEO: The Firm – “Firm Biz Remix” (1997) Live on Keenan Wayans [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

The Firm was an American hip hop supergroup that formed in New York City in 1996. It was created by rapper Nas, his manager Steve Stoute, producer Dr. Dre and production team the Trackmasters. The group was composed of East Coast-based rappers Nas, Foxy Brown, AZ and Nature, who served as a replacement for Cormega after he was ousted from the group.
Although the group received initial hype and high expectations from fans upon their formation after collectively signing to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label, The Firm’s debut album, The Album (1997), generated disappointing sales and generally negative criticism. The album, which featured predominant mafioso rap-themes and production from Dr. Dre and the Trackmasters, was criticized for its mainstream, pop-orientation. Their debut album was the group’s only release and it subsequently disbanded in 1998 with each member continuing their solo careers.
