“DJ Koko:Undergound Railroad 2 Repost”

Screen Shot 2017-09-20 at 10.14.18 AM

AWWW SHIT….Back in 2010 I posted up a mix by DJ KOKO- AKA DJ SHIMOKITA called “Underground Railroad 2” that got plenty burn on this side…FFWD to 2017- KOKO is starting to get the props he truly deserves by flipping the fuck out 45’s in a way that has many shaky DJ’s scared to fucking death !!!

WHY ?

Because he is approaching 45’s with a pure BBoy approach….Doubles, cuts, blends and all that other shit that makes your average, run of the mill, lazy DJ stick out like a sore thumb..Much props to Japan’s KOKO for keeping it fresh like your supposed to!!

” Bury Me With The Lo On “

Screen Shot 2017-09-20 at 9.11.52 AM

If you missed out on the first edition of THIRSTING HOWL’s “Bury Me With The Lo on” book, here is your chance to scoop up the 2nd edition homeboy…Please do not snooze I’m quite sure these bad boys will sell out with a quickness..

” Roc Raida Lives “

Screen Shot 2017-09-20 at 8.47.45 AM

ROC RAIDA’s musical contributions will live on forever…ROB SWIFT and RAIDA’s family have assembled a way for his supporters to pay homage…

CHECK IN….

*IN THE WORDS OF ROB SWIFT

I loved Roc Raida to death, LITERALLY.

Fresh off the road, on 9/18/09 (8 years ago), I drove down to Maryland and visited with Raida at the rehab facility he was moved to after his accident. I brought some of the guys – Mista Sinista, DJ Precision, Andrew Venable, and Guds –with me too. After the 4 hour trek, it felt good to finally see Raida and let him know, in person, we were pulling for him.

After getting over the initial shock of seeing Raida in a hospital bed paralyzed, we were back to our joking ways. The crew being together reminded me of occasions we’d be on the road, hanging out backstage or in one of our hotel rooms, shootin’ the shit about whatever. It’s like I forgot why we were there. It was like old times again. It was beautiful!

The few hours we spent with him went like a flash. None of us were ready to leave but we knew he needed his rest. So we all gathered around Raida while Dr. Butcher led us in prayer. As we left, each of us gave Raida a big hug and said our goodbyes. I left thinking I’d see him again the following week but approximately 14 hours later (Saturday, 9/19/09) he suffered cardiac arrest and passed away. Getting the news was confusing. I couldn’t comprehend how Raida could go from “yo they’re gonna teach me how to get into my wheelchair and I’ll be able to cruise around the rehab facility on my own…” to physically leaving us hours later? The key word in my previous sentence is PHYSICALLY though. Let me explain.

His presence is eternal and I, along with my fellow X-Ecutioners/X-Men and Battle Sounds : Hip-Hop DJ Documentary are committed to never letting y’all forget the name Roc Raida.

” Back To The Future “

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 2.39.20 PM

Just like many of the Hip Hop Battlefield readers, the first time I heard material from LASTER is when DJ PREMIER cut up doubles of “Off Balance” on the “New York Reality Check” mixtape…He dropped a few 12 inches after that, but we never got a full length album unfortunately…

FFWD- to 2017 the folks at BACK2DABASICS got access to a stash of unreleased joints from that era that never saw the light of day for whatever reason..

TRACKLIST-

A: One on One
A: Hardknocks
A: Clueless
A: Elbow Room
A: Twisted Logic

B: Open House
B: Gone With The Wind
B: Backstabbers
B: Flattery
B: Step Up Front

Here are snippets to the limited edition wax release-

You need some new 2017 hardcore frequencies in your life ?

LIL ETO teams up with MEYHEM LAUREN for more of that abrasive boulevard maniac rap on “High” off that “Omertà” Ep…

” More Illwaukee Treats “

Screen Shot 2017-09-13 at 11.28.11 AM

One of the highlights of the recent strictly Milwaukee mix I posted up was “Black Czer” by E-PLAY SMOOTH
(Go back and check out that joint for further analysis of straight mid-west hardcore)….That song was so explosive I had to check for more of his shit….

On “Jack Move” he flexes even more sinister bars, “I got a pistol with my name on it / every round that I blast also has my name engraved on it”….

” Wreck Alert “

Screen Shot 2017-09-07 at 9.20.44 AM

WRECK ALERT – VENDETTA VINYL TEES and sweatshirts are currently available…Worn by hard rock troopers, crate killers , Vendetta Vinyl enforcers, and top ranking B Boy scholars..Shipping worldwide-

” Illwaukee Wreckage “

Screen Shot 2017-09-06 at 8.26.58 PM

What comes to mind when you think of Milwaukee / Illwaukee if you have never been there before ?

Beer, cheese, Laverne and Shirley, pimps, cold weather, industrial landscapes, etc..HAHAHAHA…Truth be told the city has a heavy history of Mafia dealings, ruthless gangbangers, and a true to the grain Hip Hop lineage that has never fully received the proper light..CHRIS DOPE FOLKS took it upon himself to assemble a session that is flooded with strictly obscure 90’s Milwaukee joints…Give it a listen- I’m quite sure you will be surprised by how nasty some of these mid-west dudes were coming back then…..

” Flick Of The Day “

Screen Shot 2017-09-05 at 5.56.54 PM

I seriously doubt I will spot another flick today that can compete with this….SHOWBIZ finessing the avenue in the 80’s with the kitted out BM, nuff jewelry, and a dash of MCM stunting has classic steez written all over it…

Shout out to all my dudes in the BX…

” Rare Rhyme Syndicate “

Screen Shot 2017-09-05 at 5.26.02 PM

Some of these “new era dudes” are quick to dismiss Ice-T (He is the longest running cop in TV history, made a few ill advised moves in his storied career, etc), but what they don’t fully grasp is that he is one of the true kings of west coast hardcore…PERIOD…Some of his earlier joints still give me the chills when I go back and revisit them…Not only was / is he a gifted storyteller – he has the uncanny ability to weave the consequences into a crime narrative without glorifying or sounding overly preachy, which is a difficult thing to do….

On this rare as fuck clip unearthed by RANDOM RAP RADIO – ICE-T, BANGO (Consider yourself blessed), HEN G, KID JAZZ (Consider yourself blessed again), and KING T go for broke on the London airwaves in 1989….FRESH IS THE WORD…

” Jihad : Orchids & Corpses “

Screen Shot 2017-09-02 at 12.06.16 PM

When it comes to scientific murder bars – Third Sight’s ROUGHNECK JIHAD is in a hardcore class by himself…I have never heard any “shiny happy people” rhymes from this dude, his whole catalogue and manifesto is centered around killing wack MC’s (Which is welcomed wholeheartedly over here at Hip Hop Battlefield if it’s done in a creative way HAHAHAH)…

Last year he dropped the “Orchids & Corpses” album which was recorded on a 4 track between 93-96…

” Tame One : Piece Action “

Screen Shot 2017-08-30 at 2.01.42 PM

Ran into the ARTIFACTS the other night…

The funniest / puzzling part about this encounter is that after chopping it up heavy on the avenue for about 30 minutes, we witnessed a dude get picked up and body slammed right on his forehead which was followed up with a barrage of high voltage punches to his face…It was nothing nice, and it happened literally right in front of us….

On another note TAME, EL & DJ KAOS just got back from a European tour so they were in good spirits….Salute to those cats for keeping the flames lit, sticking to the script, and having a deep appreciation and respect for graff like myself…TAME has been getting busy with the hand styles since the early 80’s – here is a few examples that I could find of him getting down for his crown…
