HHHTwins,

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.

**BONUS DL – LEE WILSON Feat. MOS DEF – SOUL KISS**

GHOSTFACE and…

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 Manif 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!’

**BONUS DL – GHOSTFACE feat. FABOLOUS – 2DOPE**

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.

MAGNOLIUS – UTTER THE SUN (MPFREE)

That’s the jam.

House wins.

HHHTerrorists,

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.

Raekwon – Ill Figures Feat. M.O.P. and Kool G Rap (sorry it’s the Clean version.  I’m working on gettin the DIRTY!)

And as a bonus, the Ante Up (Remix) roster returns with another offering.

M.O.P. – Blow the Horns feat. Busta Rhymes (Dirty)

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….

So pitted.

Enjoy the day people.  Soak it up.

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

Im about to take up some of your time if your at work or give you some things to keep you busy if your not at work.

First up, since I missed Manic Mondays, here’s something a little manic to hold you up. Hipsters in Space. ‘Captains Blog…..’
Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Hipsters in Space: Judgementotron // …“, posted with vodpod

Since im a little late to catch you for New Release Tuesdays, here’s a little something for ya.
I’ve been hearing alot about this new kid Asher Roth. He’s apparently the frat boys version of Eminem. Sounds a bit like him, but he’s been all over the net and he’s been co-signed by a lot of big names in the scene. He’s got a new album dropping next week on 4/20(haha), called ‘Asleep in the Bread Aisle’. There are more than a couple songs floating around the net. Here are a couple to sink your teeth into.

First one is called Perfectionist featuring Beenie Sigel. Click pic to download.

On this next one he goes right at all the people comparing him to Eminem. ‘As I Em’ featuring Chester French. Click pic.

A man from Staten Island named Raekwon the Chef dropped an album in 1995 called Only Built for Cuban Linx that took walkmans(remember those), CD players, clubs, cars and corners by storm. Heralded as one of the best solo efforts from the Wu camp. That album still gets heavy rotation and is in my top 5 hiphop LP’s of all time. Rae has been working hard on ‘Only Built for Cuban Linx 2’. Word is it might see the light of day this year. Here’s a new track from Rae featuring Busta Rhymes.

Death Wish. Click pic to download.

Guns and weed. Damn. I like that sticky green shit.

And for the ladies, I just saw got a hold of this new Cassie track, she’s sporting a new ‘do’, and looks like she’s getting ready for some summer madness. I can’t wait.

Must be Love featuring Diddy. Click pic to download.

HHHTiny Dancers….

During my tenure as a Boy/Man, I’ve had the privilege (not always) of spending time with several different types of Ladies.  You have your slim, thick, short, tall, feisty, diva, cool, reserved, crackhead, etc.

But I’ve also found that within each category, they break into similar sub-categories.  So…being Ladies Night ‘n all, I figured I’d post some tunes for all the ladies in the club.

For that regular Club female who doesn’t like to over do it, but likes it bouncy…

T.I. – Get That Money click flick

For the Female who likes to get slammed but still manages to get home safely…

Cam’ron – I used to get in Ohio click flick

For the female who doesn’t give a FUDGE about life!

Raekwon feat. Busta Rhymes & Uncle Murda – Stick Up Muzik click flick

And for the female who just wants to go home…

Amanda Diva – Heart Strings

Finally, a bonus for the females who love Biggie.

Busta Rhymes feat. Maino, Red Cafe, Uncle Murda, Styles P., Sheek Louch, Lil Cease & M.O.P. – March 9th (Biggie Tribute) click flick

Enjoy folks.

HHHT 7&8 in all immediacy.  Scrub’em up cause it’s about to go down.

Be well world

Triple.

After the buckets of views yesterday,  I can only presume that Joe Russo is what y’all want.

So as promised….part deux.

And Dammit if it ain’t new Release Tuesday.

I got them yum yums for your EARea.

First up, Mr. Rhymes on his ol’ skool hip-hop ISH!  A KRS sample?!  Word up.  Haven’t heard someone rock one of those in awhile (which I don’t completely understand cause his samples are FREE and he’s oh so quote worthy).  If I didn’t know better, B.O.M.B.‘s on the waaaaay.

Busta Rhymes – Wack (click flick for dl)

“CAM’RON IS BACK!!”

Now generally hearing that statement, I’d be underwhelmed to say the least.  I’m a fan of like 6 songs and a handful of guest verses in his 11 year existance and most of those songs occurred in the first half of his run.  That being said, I like this new tune a LOT!  Cam goes left on this one and does a ‘Working Class’ song?!? No Poppin Champagne for this Dipset General…no sir.

Cam’ron – I Hate My Job (click flick for dl)

And finally, as a special treat FREEBASS808.  At first I wasn’t too sure who they were but they sounded dope and the emcee sounded a lot like the Geechie Gracious (he be sippin armaretto)….well turns out…it IS!  A new solo project between Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede (a.k.a. Suede Heron) and producer Apple Juice Kid (a.k.a. Apple Crack)…the clip is short but promising (Cap I think you’ll likey).

FREEBASS808 – Morphing (click flick for dl)

*Bonus – Raekwon feat. Ghostface & Method Man – Wu Ohh (High Quality)* – the Untitled song from yesterday.

Sofakinglater is in 3 days people!
Next HHHT event to be announced in a matter of days…stay tuned.

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.

Raekwon Feat. Ghostface – Criminology ’09 (click flick for dl)

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

Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On (Beatnick & K-Salaam) [click flick for dl]

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

Mos Def Feat. Sizzla – Victory (click flick for dl)

Finally…I’m proud to announce that the PPF House website will be re-launching February 1st featuring new art, music and movies from their new expanded roster of talent including: howie shia, the Worst Pop Band Ever, LEO37, Sunclef, MAGNOLIUS and the Abyss. So be sure to check that out.  ’09 is goodie time.

You can also head to their myspace page to acquaint yourself with the Toronto-based production label until Sunday.  www.myspace.com/ppfhouse

Have a great weekend folks.

Triple.

I might have A.D.D. So might you. So in accordance with both of our attention spans, on this heaven or hell Sunday, I choose heaven.
