Accurate verse to begin "Saxy"
I heard about the first cat flowin' on "Saxy". His name is Accurate 1 and he's been catching the ear of a few in the industry to add his raw rhymes to their tracks also. So authentic...

The first cat on "Saxy"
I don't know who the first cat rappin' on "Saxy" but at the end of his verse he said it best, "to hell with all these rhymes about crime." The vibe of the whole song is on point also.
