” Joint Of The Day “

“Livin in the ghetto, shit is real kid / shorties going all out – catching bodies, never doing bids”….

I’m going to take you all the way back to 1996 with the BX crew PEOPLE WITHOUT SHOES for some slept on goodness…”Ghettonetics” is loaded with ill crime narratives, plenty gun talk, and hypnotic, dusted out production that will keep your head nodding….Out of all the joints these dudes put out – this is my top ranking favorite….

” Golden State Warriors : The HD’z “

Picture 5

Since the Warriors won last night, it’s only right that I put the spotlight on a northern Cali Crew that deserve more “shines”….

When I watched the STONES THROW documentary awhile back, I couldn’t help but notice that a few names were mysteriously omitted from the film…RASCO (who had one of the labels biggest hits with the “UNASSISTED”, and the HOMELISS DERELIX)….The HD’z were a crew that emerged from San Jose with a hazy, dusted out, Jazzy vibe that immediately captured my attention…GRAND THE VISITOR & THE ARCHITECT sounded different than anything else out on the label, and it’s somewhat criminal that their names aren’t brought up more often when dudes are talking about ill groups from Cali in the 90’s – early 2000’s….

The good folks over at TI4TH recently posted up some rare HD’z material that you should peep..

” Doze Green Speaks “

Picture 4

“Green took some time to reminisce about the first time graffiti and Hip-Hop arrived to Hawaii. In the early 1980’s Green came to Hawaii with the RockSteady Crew and left an unimaginable impression on the graffiti and hip-hop cultures across the entire island of Oahu. This in depth look with Doze Green also features interviews OG Slick, Brisk and Prime, as well as archival photos from Ricky Powell and Martha Cooper. Be sure to check out this exclusive video. Mahalo!”

” Happy Bornday MF GRIMM Mix “

Picture 1

Today (June 11th) is my comrade MF GRIMM’s Bornday….

Since I have been a fan of his material since the early 90’s, I felt it was only right that I paid homage to his impressive catalog by putting a little spin on things..What you will hear is a barrage of secret society cuts, remixes, doubles, scratches, unpredictable twist and turns, B-sides, interviews, and all types of other explosives (feel free to spread around)….

Salute to you GRIMM for being a true warrior in this Hip Hop shit…Unlike a lot of other MC’s that have came and went, you will go down in the books as one of the best to ever do it…#FACTS

DOWNLOAD

Secondly, here is the sequel to the BOXCUTTER BROTHERS saga with AYATOLLAH & myself…12 tracks of sample based illness that will send you into B-Boy frenzy…..If the first installment knocked you off your motherfucking rocker, part two is going to toss you straight off the cliff..

HAHA…

Vendetta Vinyl is now shipping this release worldwide, so pick up a copy with a quickness if your on the hunt for more chop morale in your life..

” Kutmaster Kurt : Beat Tape 1992 “

Picture 6

In my opinion the last fully enjoyable album KOOL KEITH made was MASTERS OF ILLUSION…A big part of that album’s success was the quirky, off kilter, sample heavy production by the slept on beat smith KUTMASTER KURT (maybe they will unite with Motion Man in the future for part 2, I will keep my fingers crossed)…

Anyway, “KK” has a very limited pressing of some beats he made in 1992 on his Bandcamp page that is worthy of your attention….Scoop up a copy before they disappear for good duke!!!

” Reading Is Fundamental “

Picture 3

Even though I spend a great amount of time reading non-Hip Hop related material, I still attempt to keep my library flooded with all types of Hip Hop treats for inspiration…

I plan on ordering two books this week….First up to bat is the new SCARFACE joint “Diary of a Madman: The Geto Boys, Life, Death, and the Roots of Southern Rap”….Like many of the BATTLEFIELD readers I haven’t agreed with his production choices since the mid-90’s, yet I still respect the work he put in as well as his uncompromising contributions to the art form..

ORDER HERE….

Picture 2

Next up is the second installment of “CHECK THE TECHNIQUE 2 – Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies” by Brian Coleman..I would have been content with the excellent first volume, I could be wrong but it appears as if he topped his previous efforts with interviews from BLACK SHEEP, KOOL KEITH, ED O.G, etc..

” Mr. Lawnge : Class of 89 “

Picture 7

I got a nice treat for all the HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD faithful today that will help jump start your week…

Back in 2006 MISTA LAWNGE (Black Sheep, White Crows, etc) dropped the “Class of 89″ solo album with him taking control of the mic duties along with the board work….I’m quite sure many of you never heard this project before, so do the right thing and scoop this up before it disappears….

“Just in case you missed it…. This is the full length version of my 2006 solo album called “The Class of ’89.” No features, just me. But…. Don’t expect to hear any watered down sing songie R&B hooks. This is RAW Hip Hop! Just Beats and Bars… NO BullSh!#! When you get a chance give it a listen and let me know what YOU think. I just do what I do”…..

” Joint Of The Day “

” All my niggas call us 2 Live Crew / We hit Mc’Ds and jack cars in the drive thru “….

I remember hearing “Jack Mode” back in the day, but I could never track it down…Thankfully it was re-released on the MUSICAL MELTDOWN project that dropped awhile back….Truth be told, YOUNG ZEE is a hilarious motherfucker that always makes me crack up even when he is talking about extra violent shit…
