The Kings of Rock. The Black Beatles. The epitome of 2 turntables and a microphone. The first group to mash rock and hiphop. The hellraisers from Hollis Queens who defined a sound, and gave an image to hiphop, have been inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame. Here are a couple vids of the ceremony.
First Eminem Inducts RUN DMC into the Hall of Fame.
Then the boys come up to make their acceptance speech. Run talking about Russell Simmons smoking weed and drinking screwdrivers all day is pretty funny.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
This will start your morning off right. I wish I saw this on Saturday for my ridiculous post. The Lonely Island are killing it right now. First they came with the Christmas hit ‘Dick in a Box’. Then came ‘Jizz in my Pants’, followed by ‘I’m on a boat motherfucker’ and now ‘Like a boss’ feat. Seth Rogen’. 2 minutes of straight comedy. I’ve watched it 4 times already.

Nielsen SoundScan has released its year-end numbers for music sales, and perhaps unsurprisingly, they aren’t all that great—no albums cracked the three-million-sold mark this year, with Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III almost getting there (2.874 million) and every other album in the top 10, um, not. Thanks to SoundScan’s Dec. 31-to-Dec. 28 chart year, the top single was Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love,” (had it remained the original Nov-Nov chart year, Flo-Rida’s ‘Low’ would’ve taken it) which shifted 3.42 million digital singles and bested Wayne’s “Lollipop” by some 260,000 units.
THE GOOD: Perhaps most intriguing to me was the number of latecomers that showed up in the album chart’s top 10: Taylor Swift’s Fearless, released Nov. 11, came in at No. 3; AC/DC’s Black Ice, released Oct. 20, ended the year at No. 5; and Beyoncé’s I Am…Sasha Fierce, which didn’t come out until a week and a half before Thanksgiving, squeaked into the No. 10 spot.
THE BAD: Album sales? Down 14%. Overall album sales, which include “track equivalent albums”? Down 8.5%. But hey, vinyl LP sales were up 89%! Of course the 1.88 million LPs sold represents about .43% of the total album picture, but just think of what this’ll mean for the heightened presence of that Animal Collective vinyl release on Tuesday!
THE WHAAA? Rihanna may have been the top-selling digital tracks artist, selling 9.941 million copies of her various radio-ready hits in single-serving format, but her album sales were nowhere near that, even with the reworking of Good Girl Gone Bad that tacked on the seemingly inescapable “Disturbia” and that Maroon 5 song that went pretty much nowhere. Maybe we can blame Adam Levine for this, since his track was the only “album-only” track on that reissue?

Has all this consumerism led you to forget the real meaning of Christmas?? Let Linus break it down for you, in case you forgot.
Jimmy breaks down and finds out the real meaning of Christmas.
I love how Christmas falls on a Thursday, which means I can do this for the old heads.
Lets take it back a little bit to get reacquainted with a couple hiphop classics.

How can you talk about nerds without the illest nerd video of all time?
and I’ve been trying to find the dirty version of NERD’s lapdance just because it never really gets old but I think the wars on YouTube (haters) have made it disappear and I’m at work, so Googling lapdance isn’t the best thing I can do.
But it is Bubble Bath Wednesdays here at High Heels and Hi-Tops blog and here is a little treat for the ladies:
All the presidents with their shirts off (Just don’t look at the Regan one). Don’t ask me how I found that either. It was emailed to me. Yeah.
It’s Christmas Eve and what better way to celebrate than take the high-speed rail down to Khh and DJ? Anyone in the dirty dirty around to say what’s up, come on by.
Here are a few XXX-Mas presents. People recording themselves dancing, singing or whatever to Christmas songs. First up is Cheech’s long lost cousin’s version of Backdoor Santa
Had to throw the real one in here cause damn if Nate Dogg ain’t good on it
I’m not sure if I love or hate this one
This is what I imagine Christmas to be like at my house five to ten years from now
And finally, this is pretty nice. If anyone has the mpfree, hook it up before I get on that train at 6pm.
Merry Christmas folks. Thanks for all the love and support
I don’t know much, but I do know that Japan is crazy. Junko is even crazier:
I wish I could have made it to the 80s night last night, just to request the best commercial of all time. I mean for real…what f’s with that? But that’s not why I’m here today. Instead, it’s the dancehall weekend special. If you work in an office like the rest of those white collar clowns, it’s hard to stay away occasionally. I think that is why they invented BBC Radio. Like ‘Ye and Wayne say, “Amazing..just amazing.” Big ups to Robbo Ranx and Chris Goldfiger as I get into dancehall moods, mostly in the spring, and then I’m just on what is going on. Right now, the big thing is Vybz Kartel going against Mr. Anywaaaaaay, Movado. This is an ill quote from a website about the feud:
“a new feud erupted when Mavado referenced about Vybz Kartel’s belief in God, his preference, and criticizes his tattoos. He also bring back the argument about his skin-bleaching. Vybz Kartel responded by saying Mavado’s skin-bleaching argument is lame, claiming to have sexual activies with Mavado’s mother and says that Mavado is not a gangster but a ‘community barber’.
Don’t go callin me a community barber man. The great this about lyrical wars is that it brings out the beasts within that may have been dormant for the multi-millionaire (see Jay vs Nas). Therefore I bring to you the download of the day, The Advocate Riddim.
So make sure and make it down to the wall tonight. It’s gonna be amazzzzzing with the full force of Black Reign International Sound System and me MASHIN up the dance. I’ve got so much new music that if I started practicing right now, I might not be done till my set starts at 1am. And dress up. The King and the Queen get a prize
Also, the reason I haven’t been as blogging as much as I’d like is that I’ve been in meeting after meeting after meeting after meeting this week. But the plan has worked and Boooooom New Years is OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED! The name and theme is GOLD so watch this space for a MAJOR announcement within the next couple of days.
That’s almost all. But check out these amazing album re-creations using Legos.
this one goes out to Triple:
and my apologies to Hannity and Colmes and Hall and Oats, but this is the greatest duo of all time. Hands down.
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
See you tomorrow night.
El Triple Seventy.
