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.

Triple.

HHHT Patrons,

It’s my honor and privilege to inform you that: PLUSH GOT TURNED OUT!!!

Like, I don’t mean for this blog to become monotonous and maintain the same “we did awesome, the party was rocked, blah, blah” schtick after every HHHT-involved show, but hey, if we were to have a schtick, ‘Turning (insert venue name here) Out’ isn’t such a bad gimmick.

Tittsworth is a Massacre inducing superstar.  Something you don’t readily presume from his friendly, polite demeanor.  He turned the capacity crowd into one heaping mess of flailing arms and legs and I’m pretty positive everyone has Usain Bolt-type calves as of yesterday.  This man is definitely one DJ you must see during your clubbing tenure.

Now now, aside from the headliner, I can’t forget the fantastic HHHT cast who not only served as the support for the evening, but showed why we ARE the heaviest crew on the island.  Carl Winslow heavy? Nope.  Uncle PHIL heavy.  Word up.  Also, big shout out to Patricia and crew for throwing together this heaping pile of goodness.

Anyways….it was an amazing night and we’ll be hitting you up with the visual proof ASAP.

In the meantime, I give you goodies.

Everyone in the world loves’em and so should you.

They’re back and continue to keep killing faces.  Beatnick & K-Salaam refix one of the world’s greatest baby making anthems.

And while we’re on the subject….how bout some unreleased Mos Def & Sizzla over some more Beatnick & K-Salaam gravy.

So be sure to check that out.  ’09 is goodie time.

Have a great weekend folks.
