” Flick Of The Year “

Screen Shot 2017-05-25 at 10.52.57 PM

I’m going to transport you motherfuckers back to 1989 for a flick that is certified classic steez status..TIM DOG, TR LOVE, FRESH FRAN, LORD FINESSE, CAROS GARZA, KOOL KEITH, AG, PREMIER, MOE LOVE & my manz MFGRIMM…

When I asked GRIMM about this joint he had no recollection of this picture or who took it…His main question was how and the fuck did I get my hands on it, I replied with a hysterical laugh and disappeared into the smoke !!!!

” Kool G. Rap 2017 Steez “

Screen Shot 2017-05-25 at 2.13.28 PM

I’m hopeful that G.Rap’s new album with Moss will have some heaters on it….For the record, MOSS is very dope and underrated even though he has been very productive over the years..I’m not a fan of everything he drops, but he has the ability to come with some explosive shit…EXAMPLE….

On the latest leak from THE LAST DON- G.Rap links up with Raekwon for some 2017 momentum…

” Mid Week Treats “

Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 11.33.13 AM

Even though we have so much access to all types of media that we never had before, I truly think we need a new millennium YO MTV RAPS or something of that ilk to make sure certain videos don’t slip through the cracks….

It’s going to take someone with knowledge of Hip Hop history, determination, focus and a unyielding passion to pull it off…I never took ED ,DRE, & FAB 5 FREDDY for granted – they were creative enough to showcase videos with some type of quality control, but they also broadcasted to a die – hard Hip Hop audience a glimpse into some of their favorite artist personal lives for the first time….Hopefully one day a smart individual will put my hopes into action, until then I will scour You Tube to stumble across videos that I did not know existed….

For instance, did you know KOOL G RAP made a video for “Real Life” off of the first SOUL ASSASSINS comp with MUGGS ?

* I will never understand how this joint got slept on…

” Ears Here Spears “

Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 11.24.10 AM

Not exactly sure why INSIGHT chose to stick to microphone duties on his collaborations with DAMU (I actually think he is a well equipped producer as well), but regardless on the “Ears Hear Spears” he flexes all types of styles that deserve repeated listening…

Meant to post this awhile back – better late than never…

” Molecules : 2017 Steez “

Screen Shot 2017-05-19 at 3.37.20 PM

Alright folks-

This is the moment many of you have been waiting for, the “BRONX TALE” album by Molecules & Showbiz….I only listened one time front to back so I’m going to have to give it some decent burn before I state my opinion….However it is very inspiring to see these two Bronx bombers still making noise in 2017….

*Hip Hop Battlefield top picks thus far – “Heist”, “Hardcore”, “Jungle”, and “Methadone Rap”….Molecules was smart to put some of those Rare Breaks joints to good use that SHOWBIZ rocked awhile back….HAHAHAHAHAHA…

” More 45 Action “

Since it’s Friday I might as well slap you with some breaks to put a little pep in your step….KING OTTO live ((101 Breaks Part 2).

This is Volume 2 of my Breaks 101 series. This is all live on 45 rpm records. No cue point, no buttons no relative mode. I simply dropped 45s and changed them up as quickly as I could. There’s plenty of drums and samples here from dollar bin goodies to a grail or two. Stay tuned for Volume 3!!!

” Drama Overdose “

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 3.24.55 PM

The first time I heard someone flip one of David Axelrod’s compositions was on “Take Em To War” with Kool G.Rap, B1 & MFGRIMM….The producer of that track (T-Ray) didn’t add much to the original sample source and sometimes you shouldn’t if the loop your freaking has all the right elements without any additional programming (I could write a book on this dynamic with the greatest of ease but it might bore motherfuckers to death – HAHA)…..

Anyway, when I first heard this beat the only thing that came to mind was DRAMA…It didn’t hurt that GRIMM & company were spitting some of the most sinister shit on top of it, but even without the lyrics this particular beat raised the bar when it came to pure , unadulterated evil sounding shit…David Axelrod was a genius on many levels and it’s unfortunate that he is no longer with us in the physical form (He lost his battle with lung cancer earlier this year) – thankfully he left a incredible discography for us to absorb and delve into….

Here is a dedication mix by WALLA P (Music Is my Sanctuary) that deserves your attention….

” Under The Radar Treats “

After all these years of being a die hard, true blue Hip Hop fiend – plus an avid record collector, it’s somewhat amazing that I still stumble on gems from the mid to late 90’s that I never heard before…I recently found this collection of rarities on the VV12 Hip Hop site (For The Diggers Vol .1) and my Hip Hop antenna instantly activated (I’m only familiar with half of these joints, I’m not going to even front)….Take one look at the playlist if you think it’s a game duke !!!!!

” In Full Gear “

Screen Shot 2017-05-15 at 1.55.25 PM

When it come to gear I was never into all that NASA spacesuit shit, some of these trendy brands do way too much with their designs…PRITT KALSI (King Of The Beats) has the right idea : simple, effective and straight up BBoy without all the extras…

” Out For Fame 2 “

Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 1.19.50 PM

I gave KRS – One’s newest offering “The World Is Mine” a decent listen a few days ago and sure it’s not the illest album in his very impressive catalogue, but he did sprinkle some gems in there….If it was up to me, I would rock “Out For Fame 2” for some 7inch or 12inch vinyl treatment….

” Dj Spinna : 96 Beat Tape “

Screen Shot 2017-05-07 at 11.16.57 PM

If you need more instrumental flavors in your life, give this a listen and catch a zone…

The “1996 beat Tape” is the “Real McCoy”. All music was produced before computers, before accessible home studios and before instrumental hip hop was a category. Many of the beats were made with vocalists in mind. Constructed on turntables, the EMU-SP1200 and the Akai S950, historians will appreciate the album cover designed by Joe Buck which depicts intimate photos of Spinna in his studio with the actual gear used to create the album’s contents. This is only the first volume and the debut venture between Redefinition Records and Spinna’s own Correct Technique Records. With 2 plus decades of unreleased material, who knows what the future holds, but history shows that when DJ Spinna releases an instrumental album, they sell fast. Get your copy on colored vinyl or cassette now.
