HHHTroops, lovers and riders,
As with most anything great, we here at High Heels + Hi-Tops are sad to announce the wrap of our beloved time here at WordPress.
Since day one we’ve taken the position of tastemaker seriously and respectfully and hope that you, our loyal readers, have come away with a more enriched palette and a little extra soul in your heart. I know at times we (especially myself) may’ve been a touch heavy handed with the criticism and words, but at the end of the day, the goal was to be honest, not impartial and I hope that’s something you embraced.
However, with all that said, like the beloved Mr. Jordan pictured above, we at HHHT won’t be leaving cyberspace for good, but merely trading uniforms. Due to ever growing responsibilities in all of our lives, we don’t feel its fair to you, the reader, to keep showing up to an un-updated blog as regularly as you have for the past 2 months and thus the reason for our new address on both your favorite time consumer and mine, FACEBOOK.
The launch is July 1st, 2010. Check back then for the address.
Thank you for your support everyone, and see you on Facebook.
Be well world.
On some Canadian shit. The crew was on some Can-con bizniz last weekend, and having been freshly returned from the T-dot, its only fitting that for this Thursday I re-acquaint you with the elder statesman of Canadian Hip hop. Maestro Fresh Wes.
First album. A classic. Let your backbone slide is still the top selling Canadian hip hop single, and the album Symphony In Effect is the still the top selling hip hop album with 190,000 copies sold. Almost double platinum. Maestro aint no joke. He had solid beats and he could rhyme. He had the dancers and the charisma. Some might say he was Canada’s equilvalent Big Daddy Kane.
Check the videos:
Let Your Backbone Slide. The DOPE STATE jackets were pretty dope.
The 2nd single from that album was ‘Drop The Needle. Maestro came strong.
His 2nd Album was the Black Tie Affair.
Not nearly as good as the first album, but it did have this awesome cut. ‘Conductin Thangs’. I still play this one. Its gets people jumping.
He kinda fell off after this album. He worked with Showbiz & AG (to be discussed on another Thursday) on his next album called ‘Nah dis kid can’t be from Canada’. Wack title. Wack album. I prefer to remember the Maestro of old in all his tuxedo suited glory. Please enjoy.
Now on to whats good.
TONIGHT AT PLUSH
TITTSWORTH BROKE THESE DAYS TOUR!
My spidey sense is tingling……somethings going down.
Act like you know.
On to other things. Shouts to everyone who came out this weekend to rock with us. The rep grows bigger with each party and I can’t wait til were rocking in the summer. It was a lovely weekend starting things off in Taipei, representing lovely as usual. The crackatologist named Joey blessed us with the Friday visuals. Here ya go…
We gotta THANK everyone who came out and made HHHT5 in Khaosiung as wild as it was. Furry booted dancers, young and old wilin out(some very old!). Pics soon come. Look out for Volume 6 soon. And those out of town in Taichung and Khaosiung we’re coming back!!!
Wow. Guess who’s bizack. Not that you care really. But i’ll tell you anyways. I travelled to the tundra, aka T.O. several moons ago and came back wiser, well fed and with some new drawz(real talk). HHHTers I will let you know this, our squad is IN THERE.
Musically y’all are dancing and wilin’ out to the same tunes people are wilin’ out to back in the tundra. Of course we’re doing it with more style.

As predicted by ?uestlove (of the Legendary Roots crew), the blog of ’09 will be Twitter.*
*Editor’s note: I tried to link the video but then realized I forgot where I had seen it (damn A.D.D.) — plus, youtube’s givin me nothin. So you’re gonna have to take my word for it.
Anyways, since I’ve recently been swept in by this Twitter-Coup, I thought I’d try a Twitter Blog without….Twitter-ing? (Is Twitter the new word for ’09?)
HIP HOP WINTER CLASH Tomorrow at V.U.! Sofa Kings, Marcus A, Black Reign and more! Check the thumbys.
Another fantastic version HERE
Marcus A put you on the track a couple weeks ago. Now here’s the Vid:
Jay-Zed – Brooklyn Go HARD (This track is dangerous…HO-LY!)
Twitter is actually just another word for point form.
Peace to CAP X. Strikes alllll day! And this ain’t no Wii bowling neither.
See you tomorrow night.

p.s. ask me about Triples bowling prowess. Challenge the man to a game. I dare you….
No for real, its all because of you. HHHT doesn’t exist without you. If not for you, we’d just be a bunch of guys in a room geeking out to our music. So we’re glad y’all keep coming back to check the blog and spreading the word to your friends about the greatest party to hit Taipei since…who knows.
Those who were in attendance on Friday know what kind of madness went down. One of my fond memories that night was at the end of the night seeing a bunch of ladies sitting down from the utter exhaustion of dancing too much. Amazing.
Anyways, our main man Joey ‘Crack’ Russo was not in the house, but none the less we still got some good pics from the night. Shout to Charles for taking on the task. Haha. For the rest of you we’ll be coming at you again in January with Part 3. Stay tuned….
On this Heaven or Hell Sunday, I choose heaven.
Im still coming off the high of HHHT Vol.2 on Friday night. I love how music can work people into an absolute frenzy. Im sure a touch of alcohol helps too(all you can drink??!!!) But once again the HHHT squad held it down LOVELY on the music tip. Once again y’all came out and partied like some fukkin rock stars. High heels and high tops we’re rocked once again.
Pics will be up this week, and word on Vol.3 will be coming very soon.
We got some great things in store for next year, so stay tuned.
Since i’m up so early, Nice and Smooth ‘Early to Rise’. A piece of heaven…
I’ve been meaning to give this to you guys for a minute.
Air Yeezy coming soon.
Remember Calculator watches???
Much like Bone Crusha, I aint neva scared!! But this scares me. Imagine this in the wrong hands. A piece of hell…
As in 2 days left!! Im gonna take a bite out of Triple’s steez here for the ladies. Seeing as how we have 2 days left ’til HHHT Vol.2 Backroom madness @ Deep Passion this Friday, just in case you don’t know. Its only fitting that you get blessed with a couple (times 2) great duets.
First off we’re going back to the classics, Marvin Gaye featuring Tammi Terrell. With ‘Your all I need to get by’
Now if your digging the song, I got it for your ipod or iphone right here
As a bonus, Im sure most of you are more familiar with the Method Man & Mary J version of this song. When this came out a bunch of dudes starting calling their girls ‘Shorty’ and ‘Boo’. Meth’s swag is pretty mean in this video too. I’m sure it inspired some thug ambitions in many a young rider at the time.
Need it for the ipod. Here ya go
On to other inspirational things. When D’angelo (pronounced Dee-Angelo, for those who don’t know) first dropped. His album definitely inspired the R&B thug in most of us. A dude with corn rows singing all pretty and shit?!! Yeah word. His first album Brown Sugar is great and his 2nd LP ‘Voodoo’ produced by the Soulquarians has glimpses of genius on it. It was also the last album he released before getting fat and going a little crazy.
Anyways D’ang tapped DJ Premier for a remix for his ode to the fairer sex. Here’s the vid featuring AZ on the mic and a few beautiful ladies for eye candy. Joi (Big Gipp from Goodie Mob’s wife), Faith Evans (Biggie’s ex) and Erykah Badu when she had just jumped on the scene and was with Andre 3000, before moving on to Common and now she’s with Jay Electronica. She definitely got some magic between her thighs!!!
Its hard to only post 2 duets, but while on the topic of D’angelo duets, here is one that he did on the classic Lauryn Hill album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’
2 days left til the party. Tell a friend!!
I dont know why I’m in an Ice T mood, but I want y’all to hear some Ice T. Classic cover for his second release POWER. So here are a couple videos and tracks from Tracy to rock in your ipod.
Rap Master Ice T’ performing I’m your pusher
And I dont think he had a video for this song, but enjoy it anyways
And of course the Magnum Opus from the Ice man. Colors.
Shouts to my mans DJ RON and DJ SHUSTA for the high quality link. Pick up that Boom Box Mixtape Vol 1 & 2. Say word fellas.
One more thing….December 5th, Vol.2
