Responding to a Twitter user who asked DJ Pooh to share a quick story about Mix Master Spade on the late west coast hip-hop pioneer, Pooh replied with an amusing little story on their first encounter with the N.W.A and Ruthless Records founder.

“Man! One day me and Spade was at MaddHouse record store on El Segundo in Gardena dropping off our new single for sale and ran into another dude selling our records out his Suzuki Sidekick and that’s how I met Eazy. He was slanging our shit behind our backs. Lol. Macola days.”
