HHHT,

We baaaack.

As I had assumed (first mistake), with the departure of El CAPitan to the West West Y’ALL and with M.A. Waakaoing island life, it seemed that the HHHT dynasty was ready to settle into bed and retire into seclusion.  But like the Clan you know NEVER to Fuck Wit’, we’re back on our B.S. and from the West, to the East to the FAR East, we got you covered.

So to continue with CAP’s lead…we stay heavy.

Never Can Say Goodbye.

You received the leaks MONTHS ago.  And yes, you were blown away.  And yes, like yourself, I wondered, ‘When the EFF is this ISH comin out?!” Well dammit, it’s arrived and it’s oh so sweet.  Featuring remixes of MJ, Marvin and Stevie, Beatnick & K-Salaam have without a shadow of a doubt proved that they are, in fact a problem.  For REALS for real.

WTF?!

Couldn’t tell you what’s goin on here, but I can tell you I’m thoroughly intrigued.  These 2 working together should definitely generate goodies.

Pharrell & Mr. Oizo are Eric Williams?

GRANDMASTER ROC RAIDA

Finally, on September 19th, the world lost a true innovator, inspiration and phenom to the art of turntablism. Anthony Williams a.k.a. Grandmaster Roc Raida passed away last week due to complications from a surgery he had to undergo after a mixed-martial arts accident.

Without question, not only one of the most influential people in the Turntablist community, but also one of the main reasons I began to pursue music in the first place.  I literally wore out my X-Pressions CD in Grade 10 to the point where out of the 20 some cuts, I could only eventually play 5 or 6 cause the rest of the disc was burnt out.   In Saskatoon, where I grew up, we had a Skate/Hip-Hop shop called 9Times that used to get bootleg copies of underground Hip-Hop VHS tapes.  That’s where I got Tableturns 2. That’s when I first saw the Push It/Goin Back to Cali routines and that’s when I realized that Roc Raida ain’t no joke.  And well, that’s also where I got ‘the Adventures of Grandmaster Roc Raida’ and was really shown just how much of an impact he had on the Hip-Hop world.

Below I’ve included clips of the Tableturns 2 routine, one of my favorite clips from ‘the Adventures of…’ where Raida has a friendly battle with D.I.T.C. legend, Lord Finesse, and ‘Raida’s Theme’ from X-Pressions.

One of the best to ever do it.

R.I.P. Roc Raida.

Be well world. Let your peoples know you love’em.

To say its been a minute would be an understatement. I’ve been selfish these last few weeks, not sharing any goodies with the HHHT squad. To tell you the truth, I’ve been SERIOUSLY uninspired by music that is coming out and music that is being played out in clubs. If you want to know what I’ve been listening to, its been Drake’s ‘So Far Gone’ Mixtape/LP and soul music. That’s been my inspiration. So Far Gone is a couple months old but it still hits like the freshest shit my ears have been blessed with. Great rhymes spit with style and the right touch of swag. And Soul music is just timeless and makes me smile. Nothing better than listening to some good soul tunes on a chill day.

I know I haven’t been up on the blog for a bit. My homey Triple has been holding it down like Bundy with the 5 count. Good looks and salutes from across the pond thun. PPF I see you. HHHT’ers lets inject some anarchy into a lifeless system. I’m open to suggestions.

On to joints.

I love this pic because Michael looks like the one with the most swagger, next to the Big Dog Joe in the back of course. A leg up and a little attitude. Who knew then, that kid would turn into a fucking weirdo??

Next up my homey, the Reverend Al Green. This guy had amazing hair and an amazing voice to go with it. Fans of hiphop should recognize the opening drums.
