“I Forgot To Be Your Lover” by the Mad Lads
You can be sure you have never and will never find The Mad Lads on Ghostface’s Annual “Softest Niggas In The Game” list. This is one of the toughest grooves of all time! Ghostface actually sampled it on “Black Out,” his joint with M.O.P and Pharoahe Monch, and RZA included it on his amazing Shaolin Soul compilation of early Stax releases. This is a true heartbreak jam, the empty space in the groove signifying the desperation as he pleads for his lover's forgiveness.
