HHHTitanic,

Today I present to you a true Shuffle Saturday.

Santana.(Not Carlos)

The Skull Gang General has never been my favorite.  My favorite Dipset member?  Yes.  But that’s really not saying much.  No one can deny that these guys have made hits and on occasion surprise the world with some cleverness and good songwriting (Santana’s Town is ill.) But their track record leaves plenty to be desired.

Anyway…Juelz just dropped the first official single for his upcoming ‘Born to Lose, Built to Win’ album and well……I’ll let you decide.

Juelz Santana – Days of Our Lives

Double ARRRRGH


After half a decade of being shut down, it looks like the Ruff Ryders are ready to open up shop again and apparently everyone’s on board.  According to a recent interview with Jadakiss and Swizz Beatz, this year promises new albums from the LOX, Drag-On, the first Double R compilation since ’03/’04 as well as a brand new opus from their general, fresh outta Arizona State, DMX. And well, although the Double R roster could stand to lose some dead weight, it’s kinda nice (It’s like everytime the WWE bring back Degeneration X or the NWO for like a week.  It’s fun to reminisce.).   So with that being said, Kiss gives the world their first glimpse into where everyone’s been.

Once again I’m refraining from opinion on this and I’ll let you guys pick it apart.

Jadakiss – Who’s Real Feat. Swizz Beatz, Eve, Styles P., Sheek Louch, Drag-On and DMX.

**Bonus**

DMX the day he was released from prison speaking to Pastor (Murda) Mason Betha on the radio.  Entertainment.

Good Grief.

Charles, Charles, Charles.  *shakes head*

A while ago on this very page, I wrote a long winded endorsement for Charles Hamilton.  I spoke about how he was bringing back a nice element to the Hip-Hop community that had been missing and that he really had the potential to do something special.  Shortly after that post, I stopped writing about Charles Hamilton because he started to make me look like a fool as he began to put out an insane amount of sub-par to borderline garbage music on a weekly basis.  Yet, I still stood by the fact that he’s good a rapper…just misguided.

After a brief hiatus, he gave me something to write about and be proud of again when he reached out to legendary NY emcee, MC Lyte to collab on an apparent EP.    Hope.

Well…he’s gone ahead and ruined that again.

I’ll let House Shoes and J-Smooth break it down for you.

Oh Charles.  What you could’ve been.

It’s Saturday folk.  Get creative.
Be well world.

Triple.

 

HHHTroops,

Last week I started on the topic of cats who were over saturating blogs and the market with just a little too much low-effort face time and well, when talking about that type of dude one definitely has to reference Charles Hamilton.

Now I know months back I gave this guy my endorsement, and as an emcee, I still do.  However, that being said, homie releases a lot of motionless tunes that just start and end nowhere.  And I don’t care how much material you record and how much time you spend sharpening your skills…practicing in public is lame and due to this fact, I haven’t posted anything C-Ham related in quite some time…until now.

MC LYTE! Need I say more??  Word on the street is these 2 NY reps’ll be putting out an EP together, tentatively titled ‘Fluorescent’ and if that’s true…hats off to Sonic for havin some taste and respect.  Now if 50 will only give Milk the cheque he deserves for ‘I Got Money’, we’ll be one step closer to goodness. Anyway, check the chunage.

Charles Hamilton & MC Lyte – New York City Girl

Also involved with that rant last week was the almighty Wu chef, Raekwon.

Yes, I still stand by my statement, and yes, I’m not as excited as I once was about OB4CL2, but gosh darn if this doesn’t get me a little amped.  3 dudes that you just don’t wanna beef with…check the gravy.

Jadakiss – Cartel Gathering feat. Ghostface & Raekwon

And finally, in commemoration of the day.  Some throwback footage of Dilla talkin about how Jaylib came to be.  Turn it up.

Salute homie.

Be easy world

In May 1994, the world of hip-hop and late-night TV suffered an ‘L’ that they have yet to recover from.

Before Magic Johnson had his (thankfully) short run on late night TV and before Vibe had their straight-to-the-can blip of a talk show,  we had the Arsenio Hall show.   A show where (contrary to what many of my classmates growing up thought was just some corny talk show where the guy from ‘Coming to America’ came out and barked) I, and many other viewers were able to regularly tune in to see two of our favorite things on one show:  Good Ass Rap and Wrestlers.

And although, the host (and in-turn, the show), is well-known for stepping on the toes of my favorite group of all time (*see Subject heading), his contribution helped to propel and upgrade the careers of several underground legends into Hip Hop Icons.  So for those that don’t have a clue as to what I’m talkin about….

Some Good Ass Rap and Wrestlers.
