The voice of Reflection Eternal takes you back in the latest from VIBE‘s 60/60 series:

“Me and Hi-Tek had a little EP called Ground Ish [and] I was trying to get them to put out the first song from that and by mistake I played the song Fortified Live from my cassette tape. I wasn’t even trying to play that record in the meeting and they heard it and they were like, ‘What’s that?’ And I said, “Oh, this some shit we working on” and it wasn’t mixed or nothing. They was like, “’We can put that out right now and we can give you a video.’ And that was my first record with them.”

That joint was hot.
