Live Fridays - Cypress Hill

Friday, April 16th, 2010

In keeping with a tradition I haven’t been keeping, here is another in Yo!’s line of Live Friday performances in studio. For all intents and purposes this is an acapella version up until about he 2 minute mark. I just found out while on wikipedia, that their new album drops next Tuesday the 20th. I swear I didn’t plan posting this to coincide with the album release. I merely needed to get on the internweb to find something interesting to post about these guys. I think the whole purpose of this performance was for B-Real to annoy the shit out of me every time he says “Understand”

Music Video Vault : Willie D “You Still Black”

Willie D…..the guy is one of a kind that is for sure. No one would ever confuse him for the greatest rapper alive, but dammit if he didn’t keep coming with solo records. I always felt that his best calling was as part of the Geto Boys, being in a group. I could always feel Willie’s uncomfortableness with Prince J’s decision to put him with Face and Bushwick. He did come to Rap-A-Lot as a solo artist after all. His verses were never philosophical, but rather to the point. D never messed with subtlety, he was more in your face. Check out this ode to the those who forgot who they really are.

Come on, lets jump in Mix-A-Lot’s 750 Beamer. He takes us on a trip to see his old stomping grounds and telling tales of the hood and roll models not giving back. We get a small glimpse of Mix-A-Lot’s self owned studio.

Too $hort gets his gold record for Born To Mack. Freaky Tales back in the day just left my jaw droppin. I couldn’t believe someone could be so vulgar on wax. But, you know what? I kept buying those Too $hort tapes. I like this clip because my fascination with collecting gold and platinum records check a few from the collection below:

KRS-One is well regarded as having the illest live shows. Taking it from Jack of Spades to My Philosophy wrapping this clip up with I’m Still #1. For all you new jacks out there, you do realize that The Blastmaster was married to that thing floating around sharing the spotlight on stage with him right? Extra kudos for the sound system that allows Kris to be audible & also for there not being 27 guys on stage each one with a mic.

Leaders Freestyle

Leaders of the New School are joined by Del the Funkee Homosapien as they spit a pseudo freestyle session. All 5 members of LONS spit a few lines. Busta has a real leadership quality about him as seen in this and other vintage video from this era. Check the kick ass LONS shirts and where do you get this high energy of a performance now-a-days?

I am here to try to talk sense into all the younger NBA fans out there. Kobe? Pahhhlease. LeBron? Hhahaha. The guy in this video is the G.O.A.T. There’s no denying that sports goes hand in hand with hip hop and rap music. We would like to hear from everyone if you would like to see vintage sports highlight clips on this site. Please post your feedback as it is crucial to this decision.

Got some interesting ones for you here. Lets get to it. First one is a commercial from BET for a promotion where you win a chance to go shopping with Father MC.

Next up is 2 separate commercials for Derrick Coleman’s BK shoes. DC was huge when he was drafted but never lived up to the hype.

I was surprised when I found this one. It is from Mtv. I was actually shocked that they would be this socially aware.

Finally, this is Luke and a commercial for his clothing line from his record company Luke Records. Was there really a “Luke Shop”?

Slackin…..

Friday, April 17th, 2009

Thats what I have been up to. I haven’t posted in a LOOOONNG time.

Here another rarity I dug out of my old tapes. It is Big Mike & Scarface talkin about the “new” Geto Boys when Big Mike joined up. Absent though, is Bushwick who always adds flavor to any piece of video he is in. The 2 guys goof around and give the low down on the what the low down is on why Mike was takin Willie D’s spot in the group. I also dropped in a picture of some swag I have, a funeral program promoting the “Til Death Do Us Part”.
