We were truly fortunate to talk major ish with South Jamaica, Queens, New York…Mr. Cheeks!!! Yes, that’s right people we said it, Mr. Cheeks!!! Now of course Mr. Cheeks is no stranger to this rap game and far from an Up and Comer but he still agreed to talk ish with us. (Thanks Mr. Cheeks!!) We all know Mr. Cheeks from being featured on the “Jump Off” along with Lil Kim “The Queen B” and of course “Lights, Camera, Action,” both of which, still to this day, make people want to drop it down low on the dance floor. Not to mention his start with The Lost Boyz. Yeah, it’s been a while since the last time we really heard from Mr. Cheeks, but no biggie, he’s back at it!
