New York duo Camp Lo made Saturday nights with their 1997 hit "Luchini (This Is It)." After more than a decade in the industry, collaborating with everyone from De La Soul to Will Smith, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede's flow has moved overseas onto several music charts. Their new album 80 Blocks to Tiffanys is ready for release, and with production from Pete Rock the group is sure to make more Saturday nights. Cheeba lists the top covers of their first hit single in anticipation of their live performance of the song at A3C.

Top 5 "Luchini (This Is It)" covers

5) Rashad feat. Jadakiss and Sheek Louch, "Sweet Misery": The texture over it. I was surprised they even did it. The flow they came with was hot.

4) Red Café feat. Fabolous, “This Is It (Luchini 2010)": He came original. He stuck to the formula of the song and everything that it was about.

3) Wiz Khalifa, “Air Born”: The way he came across, he stuck to the energy of it.

2) Precise, “Summer With NYC”(cue 2:54 for freestyle): He just caught me off guard with it. He got a song called “Barbershop Talk” and he’s not coming with the usual, he’s coming with his own walk. The young cats will dig it and older cats who rock with hip-hop can dig it.

1) Camp Lo "Luchini": Well I don't wanna sound like I'm inhaling myself but we vibed over "Luchini" with the thought of doing something new and fly. Displaying our Bronx, New York as never done before. True to the art!

$33 3-day passes. $15 per day. 9:30 p.m. Sat., Oct 9. A3C Presents Showcase. Masquerade (Red Bull Music Academy Stage), 695 North Avenue NE., 404-577-8178.
