Ok, a couple quick Kris Parker vids for everyone. First one, he goes off with a couple quick verses. One I recognize but the other I don’t think ever made it to wax.
Now, the second video is interesting because he’s talking about a Criminal Minded movie funded by HBO somewhat based off his life. Ummm, pretty sure that never came out! Yet another hip-hop related shelved project that I wonder if they even shot a single scene for.
It also opens with a little clip of him in concert with Biz beatboxing. This is from the somewhat legendary battle of BDP vs Rumble and Strong(a Toronto rap/ragga crew from the late 80’s-early 90’s) or so I can tell. I was def too young to hit shows when that went down sadly.
Both these videos are pre-Temple of Hip-Hop Kris when I was still super amped on his shit. Below are 2 joints from Return of the Boom-Bap that I used to play heavy in the walkman. Yeah, JC I could have posted singles but c’mon mang. This is the meaningofdope, album cuts all day.
Ill shit! Since when did Conan O’ Brien have rap performances? Especially a very amped Tip, Phife, and Ali? They perform Oh My God on his little stage and come off, their back and forth shit in the chorus, their backups for each other..flawless. Phife gets away with “anti batty-bwoy” as well, guess the networks weren’t up on their patois..haha.
In light of the recent Juan Epstein podcast(no more drama pls, guys..get over it) interview with Tip, I had a reinforced view on something. Tip has my favourite voice in rap music, EVER. So much fucking charisma even when dude is just talking shit or making fun of somebody. How many dudes sound that much like themselves off mic as they do on mic? Amazing.
