” Ayatollah Wreck “

Picture 2

When it comes to Hip Hop my cuzzo AYATOLLAH is a triple headed monster in this shit..He is known for crafting beats, but he is nice with the mic and the blackbook as well…..On “The Candy Tangerine Man” he flexes flashback bars over a somber composition that will have you reminiscing about days of old….

If your unfamiliar with the blaxploitation movie “The Candy Tangerine Man” that he named this song after – I highly recommend tracking down this rare gem…

” Joe Conzo Speaks “

Picture 1

The Cipher Show is quickly becoming one of my favorite podcast (be on the lookout for the upcoming interview with MF GRIMM & myself in a few weeks) Shawn Setaro has the uncanny ability to get his guest to open up in ways that hold your attention…This time around Joe Conzo gets the Q&A treatment..

“Joe Conzo Jr. has been called “the man who took hip-hop’s baby pictures” by the New York Times – a title that’s right on the money. Conzo, a third-generation Bronx native, first got into photography as a young boy and took to shooting pictures of his neighborhood.

Personal troubles caused Joe to put away his camera for many years. But over the past decade, his work has been re-discovered and used for documentaries, exhibited in museums all over the world – including the Museum of the City of New York, where an exhibit of his photos is running until September 27th – and even published in a book, Born In The Bronx: A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop. A fictional version of Joe appears in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Netflix series The Get Down, about the early days of hip-hop, where the real Joe was on set as a behind the scenes photographer”.

” Let The Beats Rock “

Spotted this BEAT TAPE by Arkivest on KANKICK’s bandcamp page..Give it a listen if your in the mood for some off-kilter, dusty instrumentals troop….

“This took forever but I feel it’s ready enough to share with Real Lovers of True Hip Hop Music…
I took many of ARKIVES tracks that were cold chillin’ and tried to bring ’em to the front. Various years from a variety of sources ( tapes/cd’s )..all worthy of a listen.
I then proceeded to hook ’em up properly.

Overdubs of sounds here and there so you “short spanned memory folks” wouldn’t think they’re too long…..

Arkives is no ROOKIE…he’s been producing just as long as myself.
Most of these tracks were produced with the SP-1200 if not all (you’ll have to ask him).

Here are a few credits he has worked on:

1.KAN KICK “Rock, Shockin’ It”
(ACID MASSIVE MUSICAL) 2004

Due to adding a few extra tracks at the last moment…they miscredited him for this track he did…you’ll hear that beat on this mix.

” K – Def Speaks “

Picture 1

It looks like it’s going to be a good day…..The CIPHER SHOW comes with the goodies once again duke…

“Kevin K-Def Hansford is a producer with a long and storied legacy. He hooked up with Marley Marl in the early 1990s and became a key part of Marley’s famed studio The House of Hits. While under Marley’s wing, he produced great records for Tragedy, Da Youngsta’s, and more. But it was his work with Lords of the Underground that would really cement his reputation. K-Def produced half a dozen songs on the group’s classic debut, 1993’s Here Come the Lords, including the omnipresent “Chief Rocka.”

After leaving Marley’s tutelage, K-Def’s production career continued, with songs by Ghostface, Diddy, UGK, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and even his own group, the duo Real Live. In recent years, K-Def has released a number of stellar instrumental works with Redefinition Records, and continues to find new ways to expand the palette of sample-based music”.

” Body Snatching “

Picture 8

Since I’m on my UK hardcore shit today, here is a 17 minute piece on Icepick who was affiliated with the UK hellraisers, HI-JACK……If you are unfamiliar with his brand of wreck, I highly recommend that you give the mind blowing sure shot “MC KILLER” by the Body Snatchers a thorough listen…

UK STAND THE FUCK UP….

The release of the Genocide EP marked the return of The Icepick and DJ Supreme along with MC Grizzly. Despite its brilliance, the record never moved beyond test press white label stage and as a consequence many, including myself, doubted its very existence. The exact reasons for its limited press remain a mystery. Whether it was due to outstanding contractual issues or the content of the record which saw a number of UK rappers, such as Curoc and MCM, fall victim to The Icepick’s forked tongue, the 20-30 existing copies combined with the magic formula of dope song plus artist with a rich legacy have ensured that this is the pinnacle of most UK collectors’ wants lists.

While MC Grizzly was relatively unknown, Supreme and Jack Jones (as The Icepick is now called) were already well-engaged in creating their own rich tapestries. The two had both been key members of the HQ Squad in the late 80s, Supreme as deejay and producer for the mighty Hijack and Ice as emcee for the Zombie Headhunters. The classic ‘Burial Proceedings In The Coarse Of Three Knights’ would provide their first shared platform before Icepick was invited to spit on ‘The Contract’ which appeared on ‘The Horns Of Jericho’ LP. However, apart from appearing on the anti-apartheid posse cut ‘Beyond The 16th Parallel’, the fate that eclipsed Hijack’s burgeoning career after the release of their debut LP, would mean that their reincarnation as the Body Snatchers would be the next time they would meet on wax.

Throughout the EP, The Icepick’s viscous flow and volatile lyrics keep the audience on tender hooks whilst managing to inject some comedy via some classic metaphors:

“…You’re coming with the weakest rap, heard your LP, every track was crap,
Fuck around, be exact, you’re a pussy, your lips are piss flaps…”

With graphic battle rhymes such as these, as well as possibly the first use of the C word in a rap record, The Body Snatchers manage to produce a groundbreaking EP continuing the trend first started upon the release of ‘Style Wars’. The travesty in all of this is that this superb record would remain largely unknown until relatively recently when Aroe & The Soundmakers included it on their definitive UK mix CDs: ‘The Crown Jewels’.

So, with fleeting memories proved accurate, it is surprising that a record of this calibre not only failed to be officially released but also remained a secret for so long. ‘MC Killer’ – it does exactly what it says on the label!

“Britcore Barrage “

Picture 7

During our interview with CONSPIRACY RADIO a few weeks back, the topic of BRITCORE and it’s influence on my production was brought up in the conversation….I was enthusiastic to speak about this somewhat unheralded style of UK hardcore (in the States) that doesn’t get the shines that it truly deserves…

I recently stumbled onto a site that brings the Britcore format to the forefront (Rock The B-Boy Stance)…
