It’s OUT! Go get you some.
They’re angry and I love it.
Is Ghost gettin at T.I.? That’d be a fun one.
Everything up to this point has been extremely on-point and this new re-up of Wu-life (Ghostdeini, OB4CL2, Blackout!2) has certainly been welcome. Now with the first official single and a gangload of excellent art direction, this might just make moves!
That being said, not sure why they decided to go with this — not hating but I would’ve gone with one of the other joints — but either way, I still appreciate.
After an absolutely amazing night out in Taipei with these fellas, I’m spent. Like, I’m talkin ‘2 notches away from braindead’ spent. So, in lieu of said circumstances, I bring you Movie Day here at HHHT.
2 TURNTABLES AND A MICROPHONE: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF JAM MASTER JAY (Trailer)
WU-TANG MASSACRE – Part 3
BLAKROC – EPISODE #11 Feat. RAEKWON
And finally, some G.O.O.D. music treats for your lazy Sunday.
I’m gonna go watch the Tyson documentary again.
Enjoy the day.
When I first did the original ‘Pair Up’ blog, I never meant to continue it as any sort of ongoing series within the HHHT realm. However, after seeing the rash of recent pair-ups and duets that definitely deserve their honorable mentions, I say, let’s roll with this and see if there’s another Black Star or a Ghost & Rae or a Omarion & Bow Wow in the making.
Wait a minute…..scratch that last one….
Who likes acronyyyyms? D.I.T.C.? That’s always been a favorite of mine. How bout we get a little deeper into it and break out A.G. and O.C.
Yessir. You heard me right. East Coast legends Omar Credle and Andre the Giant, better known as O.C. & A.G. have gone ahead and finally put this classic D.I.T.C. what if? scenario to bed and are slated to release THE OASIS November 24th on Nature Sounds (home of Masta Killa, the Ghost & DOOM project, and oodles more).
If this tune is any indication of how the album’ll turn out, I’m there. I swear to you, neither of them have even come close to losing a step and believe me when I say A.G. keeps getting better and better and better…(See his guest appearance on Dabrye‘s Two/Three)
It’s coming sooooon.
As I reported a couple months ago, Stones Throw frontliners Madlib & Guilty Simpson will be teaming up to release the highly anticipated O.J. Simpson record either last quarter ’09 or first quarter ’10. Madlib, who has cemented the fact that he has one of the best batting averages for beats ever, matched with Guilty, who’s punchline onslaught can only be compared to an E. Honda attack, will undoubtedly result in something so raw it would be O.D.B. approved. Don’t believe me? Check the freebee. GOOD GAWD I love these guys.
FIF & MAC
Don’t really need to write all that much about this. Beans is goin at Jay and 50‘s making sure he’s right in the middle of it…as usual.
If Jay eventually decides to respond though, this’ll get hella entertaining. Beans is not only a beast, but this could get extremely personal extremely quick. Do I smell a Pay-Per-View? Y’know 50 probably already has it in the works.
And as an added treat, Part 2 of the Wu-Massacre trailers. Enjoy.
I have a backlog of amazing stuff I wanna throw up so don’t be alarmed if I just randomly start posting MPFrees.
Be well world.
Enjoy the weekend.
HHHTrick or Treaters,
In a very special Halloween edition of HHHT, I give you a bucketful of tricks and a handful of treats; A few scares and plenty to calm that sweet tooth of yours.
Ghost Stories with Ghostface Killah. – I could listen to this man speak for hours.
The Wu-Massacre – I wasn’t lyin, here they come.
Some thought the day would never come, and well to many, this truly is a nightmare. After years of speculation, the silence has officially been broken. Beans and Jay are no more.
Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys – Empire State of Mind (Dir. by Hype Williams)
This one is strictly for my T.O. heads.
It’s been a long time coming and something that I, as well as many many others have waited years for. We got singles. We got demos. We got guestspots. And thankfully we got Big Black Lincoln. But now, after what seemed to be an endless strings of delays and setbacks, word is Saukrates is on his way back with Season One, and it’s coming soon! Here comes the first street single off the record featuring Andreena Mill.
BLAKROC EPISODE #3 ft. MOS DEF & JIM JONES
Awesome. Just awesome.
Get ta trickin folk.
Be scared world.
HHHTowards the Right (Geographically, not politically),
In the last decade, the once dominant East Coast (Home of everyone from De La Soul to the Notorious B.I.G., the Juice Crew to the Wu-Tang Clan) have struggled to stay on top of the rap food chain as their necessity for cadence and concept has been dwarfed by the Souths ever infectious ‘Bounce’ and ‘Hook’ approach. And well, while living legends Jay-Z and Nas still continue to dominate whenever they appear, the notion of a new East Coast dynasty remains myth like Lebron’s Championship ring.
However, as an over obsessive rap Stan, I’ve noticed something this year that has somehow slipped under the mainstream media’s radar…THE EAST IS BACK! Now I won’t go so far as to say a new Dynasty is on the horizon because quite frankly, outside of a handful of artists, the East is still selling less than the South. But for those who just love themselves some East Coast ish, 2009’s been good to you!
Lemme break it down:
- Jadakiss pushed 100,000 his first week.
- Mos Def had in my opinion (and Diddy’s apparently), the best album of the year – PRETTY DANCER’S MY SHIT!
- Fabolous, although coming with less than stellar singles, actually had his best album yet (check Pachanga).
- Wu-Tang CAME (and left again).
- De La Soul celebrated their 20th anniversary with an incredible tour (yes I was there and yes it was the best I’ve ever seen them).
- Busta stayed relevant.
- Q-Tip released (and re-released) 2 ridiculous records!
- Drake is hotter than fresh caca outta Dumbo.
- Slaughterhouse‘s Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz continue to spit crazy bars.
- KRS-One and Buckshot proved they can still punch with the best of’em.
- Meth & Red stayed INTERNATIONAL!
- Raekwon & Ghost both released excellent albums as well as confirmed an upcoming trio record with Meth.
- And finally, Jay came back and made up for that black eye known as Kingdom Come.
Well, to add to this nice list of 2009 accomplishments, how bout a few more goodies that slid across my desktop this past week (and a few that came out during the HHHT hiatus).
HOV’ WITH ONE OF THE BEST COMMERCIALS EVER!
GHOST WITH SOME CLASSIC ISH (nsfw)
Jadakiss & Rakim – Euphoria (w/ Tags unfortunately)
AND THE ROOTS! ROOTS! ROOOOOOTS!!
I’m feelin good people. Get to my level.
Throughout the history of music there’ve been an abundance of amazing duos. From Eric B. & Rakim to Simon & Garfunkel to Rick James & Eddie Murphy (CLAAASSIC!) it seems that the nature of pairing 2 equally skilled artists together can have an incredibly positive and progressive effect on the quality of the end product. Whether it be because of some intangible chemistry or simply because both artists are doing their best not to be outshone by the other, at very least, duos always give us something to talk about. Well, to continue and contribute to this pattern, here’s a post about a few more new and old classic pairings.
DEF & DOOM
What do you get when you take 2 of Hip-Hop’s most beloved and influential lyricists, both of whom were at one time themselves part of other classic pairings (Black Star & KMD respectively) and you put’em together?
Well…I don’t actually know. But I assume it’d be madness.
Just recently leaked was this youtube footage of Mos Def and what sounds like DOOM behind the camera spitting some potentially new co-written material. As of now, these 2 have never officially released any songs together, but after seeing this, it might be okay to start getting your hopes up.
And if you didn’t see the initial video, this is Mos speaking on the dopeness of DOOM and touching on the genius of De La.
Ghostface has been part of his share of classic pairings. Whether it be himself and the aforementioned DOOM, or with long time Clan member, Raekwon (who he’ll be releasing an album with alongside the rejuvenated Method Man — if you didn’t cop Blackout!2, you need to.), Ghost rarely, if ever, falters on a verse and any rap fan who breathes oxygen knows this.
Well although this isn’t actually a pairing, here’s a clip of Ghost talking about the late-O.D.B. and just what he meant when he said ‘Oooh Baby I like it RAAAW!’
UTTER THE SUN
And last but definitely not least, the HHHT World Premiere of Toronto-based duo MAGNOLIUS‘ brand new video – Utter the Sun.
These guys are a problem. Stay tuned.
That’s the jam.
I know it’s Sunday.
And I know this is generally your day of rest….but I just couldn’t wait another day to give you this sneak peek.
You know how as a kid you used to make up fantasy posse cuts? Like I know in my circle we’d come up with combinations like Pharoahe Monch, Del and Big Boi, or Black Thought, Aesop Rock and Kurupt. Y’know, ish like that. Hell, N.E.R.D. actually did one of mine when they put together De La, Q-Tip, Mos and Common for their She Wants to Move remix. Well….how bout this one.
And as a bonus, the Ante Up (Remix) roster returns with another offering.
And to continue with the theme, Raekwon just released video version #2 of the New Wu track featuring Meth and Ghost. I’m not sure why he did another version cause Ghost isn’t even in it, plus the RZA cameo (as well as a ton of others) isn’t there. Instead they grabbed cameos from cats like Teyana Taylor? Oh well….the tune’s still heavy.
Finally, on a completely unrelated note…..courtesy the homie Rewind from The Intelligentlemen….
Enjoy the day people. Soak it up.
I think I’m a touch late on the New Release Tuesday, but at very least it’s still Tuesday where I’m at so enjoy the goodies.
I’m in a bit of a rush though so this’ll be another Post Up and Pop Out.
TWO FULL MIXTAPES for your listening pleasure.
First up, Mr. Bus-a-Bus with his B.O.M.B. prequel ‘I Bullshit You Not’.
Full of the 12 albums worth of leaks he’s been dropping this past little while. It promises to have half WOO-HOO and half DOO-DOO….at least that’s my guess. You tell me.
Next we have something that I’m very excited for….the Cheech & Chong of rap, Meth & Red‘s Lights Out! A compilation of old and new and well, from what I’ve heard thus far 🙂 …..well, I’ll let you decide. Shouts to Saukrates for holdin down T.O. on the first single. I enjoy it muchly.
Finally, a guy who hasn’t consistantly rocked my neck but yet I consistantly support (and still made one of my top 20 albums of all time) Dizzee Rascal returns with the help of Armand Van Helden to bring you some visual and aural rocks!
It’s Tuesday (or Wednesday) folk, save a cat.
