Mafioso Click f/ Pimp C – “Feel My Choppa”
from Feel My Choppa (Mafioso, 2000)
In what seems to be an unfortunate recurring trend at this blog, I don’t have much info on these dudes. I’m not even sure of their rap names, though I do know that their government names are Reggie Moss and Ralph O’Neal III. I also know that Mafioso Click was a duo from Nashville, TN.
But the keyword there is “was”: Reggie was shot and killed in 2005 and Ralph is currently facing drug charges along with a murder indictment. Before that though, they put out a few underground albums, including Feel My Choppa, which was released through Mafioso Entertainment in 2000. Pimp C shows up to drop a verse on the album’s title track, but I have no idea who produced it; like many underground releases, the album has a one page liner note sheet and it only mentions the album’s guests.
UPDATE: Thanks to a comment from dollfacekillah at the old spot (and some Google-Fu on my part) I have a little more info about these dudes to share. Reggie’s rap name was Black Greed and Ralph’s was Bunz. Mafioso Click was also more than just the two of them: it was a collective that included some dudes named Trigg and Dirty, along with a few others.
Regarding the album itself, as pointed out by sicx in the comments, the version that I have is in fact the 2000 re-release. It was originally released in 1998 with a totally different tracklist and artwork. According to the original, the album was produced by Greed and another dude named Ralloc.
I also must admit that I was never quite sure who was rapping on “Feel My Choppa.” Other than Pimp, I just assumed it was Greed, Bunz, and some other dude. Well, a Swisha House mix of the track showed up on a D-Tay/Loc-O mixtape called Rated G and its tracklisting credits D-Tay, Loc-O, Greed, and Pimp. So take that for whatever its worth.
