It’s Monday and we’re taking you down to memory lane of a hip-hop beast/lyrical assassin. That’s right: we’re talking about a Queens legend and a real New Yorker, Michael McDermon aka Mic Geronimo.

Around the way in Queens there were talks about a young MC on the rise with the total package. It was then that Geronimo would team up with the music mogul in the making at the time, Irving Lorrenzo, recognized under the name, Irv Gotti. He would eventually work with Irv and release of the underground, “sh*t’s real.”  This collaboration would spark the signing of his recording contract with Blunt/TVT records, which they released his debut record The Natural in 1995.
