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

In 6 days…the name sake of this blog returns. **GUNFINGER IN THE AIR!!! PULL IT!!! PULL IT!!!**

And to commemorate, I thought I’d post 6 classic (and not-so classic) Posse Cuts all featuring 6 artists.

In no particular order…

1. De La Soul Feat. Q-Tip, the Jungle Brothers & Monie Love – Buddy Remix

Yes, I know, Queen Latifah sings backup on it, but it’s only for 4 bars, so it doesn’t deserve a principal credit.  Also, Phife was on the original remix, but if I’m not mistaken, was taken out of the video because his verse was too explicit.  Anyways…possibly the first posse cut ever where everyone in the video actually seem like friends.

2. Rascalz Feat. Kardinal Offishall, Choclair, Thrust & Checkmate – Northern Touch

If you’re a Canadian, you know how much this track meant to Canadian morale.  The biggest thing since Maestro’s (f.k.a. Maestro Fresh Wes) – Let Your Backbone Slide.  The Rascalz before they started sucking, Choclair when he didn’t suck as much and Kardinal before he was a Konvict…

3. Three 6 Mafia Feat. Young Buck, 8 Ball & MJG – Stay Fly

The last Three 6 Mafia single with Crunchy Black still part of the crew.  This tune is enormous and did tremendous things for the South’s mainstream reputation of only putting out stripper music.  Many people have converted on the strength of this song alone.

4. Wu-Tang Clan (RZA, U-God, Masta Killa, Ghostface, Cappadonna & Inspectah Deck) – Careful (Click, Click)

In my opinion, one of the Wu’s most highly slept-on tunes/videos.  Menacing, grizzly basstones, Philip Glass’esque tinklings, a vomit green wash, great camera work and Dwayne Wayne from a Different World…what more do you want!?!  This is pure, unadulterated Wu-Tang.

5.  Hieroglyphics – You Never Knew

Call them the Wu-Tang of the West.  Or call Wu-Tang the Hiero of the East.  Either way, although Hiero never achieved the same star-status, much like Wu-Tang, Hiero (Del, Souls of Mischief, Pep Love, Casual) completely changed the way emcees both wrote and delivered.  Lyrically beasts, Hiero has, and continue to (see Casual and Del’s latest work) pioneer some of the newest and most exciting cadences in music.  If you never knew…now you do.

6. New Edition – Hit Me Off

And last, but certainly not least…Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mikey, Johnny and Ralph.  New Edition.  Nuff said.

Triple.
