Can we show some Pac Div love? I've been excited/happy/enamored by them for 5 years now. They are some of the most relatable/fun dudes in hip-hop today. Put up the Pac Div video for "Posted," please.

Didn't even notice they had been put up there. The few songs I've heard of theirs I really like. Can't remember one of the ones I listened to but it had a real Clipse feel.
