” Good Morning Vietnam # 3 “

Picture 9

*Due to the fact that GRIMM & I put a tremendous amount of time and energy into the making of GMV 3 – I’m going to take a week long hiatus from HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD…Regular posting will resume next Monday.

So where do I begin?

This is the final installment in the GMV series…On the first two joints we hit you with multiple angles and frequencies, but in my humble opinion part three raises the stakes and pushes the suckers straight off the motherfucking cliff without a parachute..

I’m not going to hit you with a bunch of fancy adjectives and extras…If you still believe in the power of hardcore Hip Hop you already know what it is….Salute to everyone out there that has supported these releases (I SEE YOU)..

” Nonce Beats : Vol. 1 “

Picture 7

Former NONCE member SACH has a Bandcamp page that you should peep while your floating around in cyberspace cuzzo….The first thing that caught my eye was the strictly instrumental project entitled “Nonce Beats”…

RIP YUSEF AFLOAT…

“The tone, Akai S900 and S950 both came with a tone to test the audio output, we took that tone and made it into all the sounds we dreamed of. Going through the crates, putting it all together with my brother, Those times are forever etched in my mind”.

PEEP…

” Saturday Check In “

Picture 5

Straight from Buffalo, NY comes this mix from DJ CUTLER…

“It is with great pleasure that I share with you all the first of a semi-chronological, multi-volume mix series we will be releasing throughout the year exploring some of our favorite hip hop music of 1994. Each volume will be physically available for purchase on cassette later in the year, please hit me up if you’re interested in copping one. Mind you, each volume is separated into two sections, side A and side B–be sure to download both”.

PEEP…

” Midweek Morale “

Picture 2

TI4TH is a blog that is filled to the rim with independent releases from the late 80’s-mid 90’s…I highly recommend spending some quality time on the site if your on the hunt for some under the radar Hip Hop treats. For instance, you will spot rare material like this SHAMEN collection (Pep Love & Jaybiz) that never received an official release…

DOWNLOAD…

” Let The Beats Rock “

Picture 1

That wild and crazy guy KUTMASTA KURT has a bandcamp page that is flooded with all types of goodies….This early 90’s beat tape was one of the offerings that caught my immediate attention…

PEEP…

” New Shit On Deck “

Picture 5

Anybody that shouts out TENOR SAW in 2014 gets a salute from me on GP….Just last week I posted one of my favorite joints from SINGAPORE KANE, now he makes his return with “Pull It Up” with production from PURPOSE…

Be on the lookout for his upcoming album “Waves & Shades” due out soon…

” James Brown / Percee P “

Picture 4

PHONICA RECORDS is back on the set with this James Brown / Percee P secret society 7inch that is a perfect addition to the crates….

PRE-ORDER ITEM : Expected September 22nd 2014. This item will only be shipped to you on or after the official release date. Please note any orders containing pre-order items won’t be shipped until all items are available, so please order this separately to avoid delays. Please remember that release dates are at the mercy of labels, distributors, and pressing plants and will change constantly.

The Godfather of Soul is back with the super funky Make It Good To Yourself which appeared on the Black Caesar soundtrack from 1973 but never before on a 45 – loaded with samples, we pair it with one of Percee P’s dope early releases, Lung Collapsing Lyrics from 1992 – first time on a 45!

CHECK IN….

” Lord Superb Steez “

Picture 3

“You know how we dine, we don’t eat swine and we don’t drink wine / if you don’t bring me some cognac I’ll kill you, I can’t feel you”….

REMEMBER THAT SHIT ?

Regardless if you believe LORD SUPERB once penned lyrics for Ghostface or not, you have to admit that he has one of the most unique styles out there…On part 2&3 of the “All That I Got Is You” series he takes his exaggerated anguish bar steez to new heights HAHAHA…..

PART 3

PART 2

Picture 2

” Joint Of The Day “

Picture 9

Out of all the songs I have heard from Boston rhyme slinger SINGAPORE KANE – “Don’t Take It Personal” from the 2009 release “Living Militant” is my top ranking pick…

“SK” spits disgruntled bars over a eerie organ chop that will make you want to toss someone off a cliff…

PEEP…

” Ghostface Speaks “

Picture 7

GFK recently sat down with the people over at Red Bull Music Academy for a little Q&A action…

Even by the extraordinary standards of the Wu empire, the career of the Ghostface Killah Dennis Coles was marked by highs and lows, twists and turns. Arguably the most influential lyricist of the clansmen, Big Ghost has always served a special position in the Wu-Tang matrix. After Enter The Wu: 36 Chambers had bum rushed the show in 1993 with a hitherto unheard of pairing of rugged Shaolin street narratives, kung fu samples and ancient wisdom, Wu Tang Forever catapulted the clans’ core members onto a whole new plateau. Let’s face it, following the success of Raekwon’s classic Only Built For Cuban Linx and his solo LPs Ironman and Supreme Clientele Ghostface’s influence as a media icon was big enough to transform the Clarks Wallabee slipper into the most sought-after fashion item around.

CHECK IN…

” First Frontal Assault : The Punisher EP “

Picture 6

Here is some more UK hardcore material that will perk your ears up….

Three previously unreleased tracks from the early 90′s..

Now finally on wax! All recorded around 1991, The Punisher, Lock ‘N’ Load and the Badge Of The Assassin are keeping what they promise – strictly Hardcore Hip Hop in the vein of Music Of Life’s First Frontal Assault.
Although the tracks can’t keep up with the three released ones, they shouldn’t be missed in any serious UK Hardcore Hip Hop collection!

PEEP…

” Han Shock : Always Remain Hardcore “

Picture 5

Due to the untimely passing of GEMINI from the hardcore UK outfit HARDNOISE recently, it’s only right that I post up this ugly mix by HAN SHOCK that features strictly Great Britain cuts from the late 80’s – early 90’s…

Turn the motherfucking volume up a few notches and catch a zone….

” Sample Source Steez “

Picture 3

Are you ready for another round of “Name That Tune”?….

To be honest this mix by RUCK & WIZ isn’t the most obscure sample source mix I have come across, but the sheer volume of selections makes it perfect for a long drive or flight (Over 200 joints)….

” Hip Hop Treats “

Picture 2

It’s amazing how Hip Hop has the power to blow brands up….Nike, Adidas, Polo, Timberland, Technics, Puma, Akai, Cazal, and so many others owe a tremendous amount to the Hip Hop community for promoting their brands worldwide (Unfortunately in many cases we do not get the credit that is due)…

The third video in our History Of Eyewear In Hip-Hop video series gives the stage to none other than Biz Markie and Dj Cool V. Pioneers of not only hip-hop music, these two lead the fashion scene as taste makers, and the ultimate collectors. Biz and DJ Cool V take us on a historical journey through the cultural importance of eyewear in the music industry. From the mean streets of NYC, to the Cazal snatching days, to the old school spots where they copped the freshest of frames. For more history of eyewear, or to purchase any of the frames seen in this video visit http://www.VintageFramesShop.com
