HHHTime for some akshun,

Today’s post is for people who like Rap.  Period.  That’s it.  You like bars?  You like flows?  You like lyrics that make you go ooooh?  Then this is for you.  If you said no to any of these questions, leave now.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to post this ish yesterday exactly one minute after it was posted!  Unfortunately my code-illiterate ass just couldn’t get it to embed.  Thankfully, as expected, someone Youtube‘d it and we’re back in business.

THE CYPHER

Yesterday the annual shamefest known as the BET hip-hop awards took place and well, as expected, it was a useless piece of goonery crap that only helped to ensure that those who don’t like hip-hop stay hating.  That being said, this award show has provided us with 1 good thing every year and it’s those damn (Rap nerd wet dreams –  ‘What if…’) CyphersLast years dopest cypher featured Juelz Santana, Fabolous, Ace Hood (Who surprisingly rocked it even though he can’t write a song worth his life) and Jadakiss running a mean anchor.   Well, I’m happy to say that this years top cypher nearly made me wet myself.  And if it doesn’t make you at least kegal a couple dozen times, then you lied about one of the above questions.

No more talkin.  RAP!  This one’s gonna have people arguin for a while….

The other 2 cyphers (that were decent, but nowhere near the one above) can be found below:

Cypher #2 ft. Wale, Nipsy Hussle, Gsan & KRS-One

Cypher #3 ft. Nicki Minaj, Buckshot, Crown Royyal & Joe Budden (Budden’s a problem!)

A & E

It seems like the thing to do these days for rappers in their mid-30’s is to find another rapper in their mid-30’s who roughly holds the same stature and combine to make a group.  Canibus and Keith MurrayDel the Funky Homosapien and Tame One. DJ Quik and Kurupt. And even though it would seem like all of these would be dope, or at very least entertaining, only the Quik and Kurupt really popped for me (and I’m a Del fan to the core).  Well we have another pairing for you and this time, it might just work out.  2 people that have influenced a LOT of your favorite rappers but rarely ever get their mention, ladies and gents, I give you A & E (a.k.a. Masta Ace and Edo G.)

**sidenote — for all you Eminem fans, if you didn’t realize that Em started as a Masta Ace clone you better go do your research.  Em’s even copped to it himself.**

MASTA ACE & EDO. G – EI8HT IS ENOUGH

BLAKROC EPISODE #2 ft. Mos Def

We proceed with part 2.  Mos hits the studio and the world implodes.

HIP HOP HISTORY w/ RAKIM

An interview 24/7 Hip Hop did with the Teflon Don breaking down the significance of the number 7 in his life, his falling out with Eric B., and a wild story involving Kool G. Rap getting snuffed and Eric B. riding a sheep skin.

HHHThrowbackers,

Often when you get into the debates with your homies over the dopest/most influtential emcees to ever salivate on the steel cage, Rakim Allah the Teflon Don tends to generally come up.

And while I won’t contest that the man is magnificent, his solo joints after his divorce from the First black President, Eric B. were underwhelming to say the least (even though 18th Letter was well received, I still think it’s predominantly phoned-in).

That being said, both 1997’s 18th Letter and 1999’s The Master had some dope joints on’em and well, being ‘No Country For Old Heads’ Thursday, I came across this rare remix of the 18th Letter‘s first single, ‘Guess Who’s Back’ by D.I.T.C. in-house producer, Buckwild (who you also might know from his work with Kool G Rap Fast Life, Organized KonfusionStress, Black Rob — Whoa!).

But before you get that….here’s a link to the original done by one of the most underrated contributors to the genre, Mr, ‘Brooklyn’s Finest’, Mr. ‘Get Money’, Dana Dane’s backbone, Clark Kent.  (PLUS one of the most bizarre videos I’ve ever seen.  Rakim getting his Salvador Dali on??)

(incorrectly labeled from 1993)

Rakim – Guess Who’s Back (Original)

Rakim – Guess Who’s Back (Buckwild Remix)

And just for good measure, from The Master, Ra & Primo makin goodness.

That’s Thursday folk.
Keep the looks comin.

There’s something you should know about me.

I love Hip-Hop.

No no…you don’t understand….I LOVE IT. To the core of my soul…it’s something I’ve thought about every single day of my life for the past 10 years and well, it hasn’t waned in the least.

Now let me clarify something, as a person I’m not one of those guys who tries to be as ‘hip-hop’ as can be. Everything I wear isn’t rap related, everything I say isn’t Brooklyn slang, and everything I do isn’t to ‘Keep REAL Hip Hop Alive’.  As an artist, I don’t write songs FOR Hip-Hop or about my LOVE for Hip-Hop, I don’t engage the crowd in “When I say HIP, You say HOP” chants and I don’t say ‘Real Talk’ to finish all my sentences.  In fact, all the reviews I’ve had and Interviews I’ve done usually start with: “This is not your ‘Traditional’ Hip-Hop’….

No I’m not. But I FUCKING LOVE IT.

It’s throwback Thursdays, and I’m giving you a golden WINZIP file from ’88 (link at the bottom). When you listen to these songs, remember….Tomorrow is the day
and you better fucking be there….for Hip-Hop. HA!

Here’re videos of 6 songs you get in this 8-song package.  The other 2 are classics from the Jungle Brothers and Chill Rob G.  Enjoy.

(disclaimer – There is SO MUCH dope from 88, that this’ll probably only be PART 1….stay tuned)

Eric B. & Rakim – Paid In Full

Boogie Down Productions – My Philosophy

RUN DMC – Run’s House

Public Enemy – Don’t Believe The Hype

Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo – Road to the Riches

De La Soul – Potholes in my Lawn

See you tomorrow night.
