HHHTruants,

First off, apologies from the crew for being away this past week.  The CAPtain‘s been marinating in some birthday love, M.A. continues his quest to Waakao the world and I’ve been sewing up some of the final details for the PPF House ‘Slow Claps’ Tour which will see us hit 20 cities nationwide this summer (So, all my Canadian homies, keep your eyes peeled cause we’ll be in your neck of the woods very soon).

Secondly, in regards to the blog title…cot damn!! if there weren’t a crazy amount of treats offered up on the blog circuit this week.  I won’t be able to get to’em all today, but I’ll do my best to give you the highlights.

SA-RA Creative Partners

I’m a large fan of these guys.

Even though their debut effort sounded less like an album and more like a compilation thrown together a week before deadline, these L.A. maestros somehow managed to flex their musical muscles and avoid being overshadowed beneath a ridiculous cast of guest spots that included: Dilla, Kurupt, Q-Tip, Kweli and Pharoahe Monch…just to name a few..and show people that, in the illustrious words of Robert Diggs, Sa-Ra ‘ain’t nuttin’ to F*!# wit‘.

Now prepping to drop their Sophomore set Nuclear Evolution: The Age of Love, I give you some sneak peek material that I can only hope dwarfs their previous effort.

Sa-Ra Creative Partners – Bitch Baby

Black Star

Even though Hip-Hop has designated a Golden Age period for the sake of its cultural timeline, I don’t think I’m wrong in saying that for each serious listener and lover of music, we all go through our own renditions of a Golden Age.

Black Star was an integral part of mine.

Now I can’t really explain why these 2 very afrocentric lyricists are so beloved by Asian kids everywhere, or why Okayplayer shows seem to always be 50% my kin, but they are.  I’d like to think that my reasons behind my fandom are unique, but chances are they aren’t.  And well…as I try to find ways to separate myself from the pack, the bottom line is, when these 2 get together, it’s nuts.  Whether you’re referencing: Know That (Black on Both Sides), Joy (Quality), Supreme Supreme (Right About Now), Little Brother (Hurricane OST) or the whole Self-Titled Black Star album, these guys have that intangible ish.  And well, they’re back again for Mos’ upcoming effort, Ecstatic and I’m happy bout it.

Mos Def – History Feat. Talib Kweli

DILLA

I generally write enough about Dilla on this blog.  No more writing.

Watch and DL.

Dilla -Blood Sport (Feat. Lil Fame of M.O.P.)

It’s Friday Folk…scrap it up.
Be well World

HHHTitans,

I’ve been away.

Well actually…I still am.

And unfortunately, because of this, I haven’t been able to offer the crew the support they so readily deserve with their hectic schedules (see: Waakao,  Soul Food Fridays @ PS Underground, Shuffle Wednesdays @ Copa and anything that has HHHT on it).

So, as of today, after a 2 month hiatus, I’m back like Demond Wilson and ready to get it in.

First up how bout Jigga doin Diddy (ayo/no homo/pause/whatever they’re sayin nowadays).

As you all know, Diddy has a thing for wanting to make hit records.  And him being the intelligent business man that he is, knows that he can’t write a rap for shit.  Soooo….why not just spend that business man money and get a business….maaan!  A Jay-Z & Diddy tune that apparently is ghostwritten for Diddy, but the scratch vocals have Jay referencing Jay, so I’m confused.  Anyway, check it…

JAY-Z (or Diddy?) – MAYBE (snippet)

Next up, Camp Lo.

I love’em.  Absolutely.

I hate the word Swagger.  I really do.

Sure there are a few dope tunes fashioned around this word, but as an overall, its been misappropriated and as a result…teabag.   HOWEVER, if anyone completely and wholeheartedly embodies the word swagger, it’s the Geechie Gracious and Sonny Cheeba. No question.

New ish.

CAMP LO – GET’EM LO GANG

And finally (for MPFrees), the official return of Reflection Eternal. (YAAAAAAY!!!) I know this vid was released last month but I just got my hands on the CDQ MPFree so for you, I give you a double sided goodie like Motown 45’s.

Reflection Eternal – Back Again

Quick question.  Like Wax?  Got an iPod touch? (this is ridiculous…hit up the video — sorry don’t know how to embed Vimeo yet.  Cap? Marcus?)

Soul Food Friday’s tonight folk.  Get’em Cappy.

Word up Taiwan.
Be well world.
See you soon.

…with us.

Sorry that its been a long time but sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. The crew’s been grinding hard and we’re seeing the fruits of our labors now.

Marcus A just launched Waakao! a new information portal for Taiwan. Picking up where +886 left off, this will be the new site to check for information about Taiwan.

Leo37 just launched PPF House and they’re in the process of planning a cross Canada tour to support the releases they have from their roster for this year. Check it out. Click pic for info.

There’s also your’s truly running some Soul Food on Fridays at PS Underground from 8-1030pm. Come through during dinner time and hear some good music. Also the lasagna is absolutely amazing. Im a big lasagna fan and I’ve been disappointed on more than one occasion with the pithy filth they’ve tried to pander off as lasagna at other restaurants. The lasagna at PS is spot on good. Proper layers of meat, cheese and pasta, as lasagna should be made. The music is decent on Fridays from 8-1030pm too.

marvingaye-copyPS Underground is located at:

B1, #37, Lane 187, Dunhua South road (Donchu area) 敦化南路187巷37號B1(東區)

The party you all know and love is about to hit 10 events. We got something special in store for HHHT9 & 10. Stay tuned. More info to come real soon.

Nike is opening a gallery space called 6453 in Taipei City on April 8th. Mick ‘The Commissioner’ Boogie will be blessing the opening space party and the after party which is going to be held at Primo. You also may see a couple members of the HHHT squad making a special appearance at the gallery opening party.

I gave you guys a heads up on 88Keys a couple months back. Seems that his album ‘The Death of Adam’ is doing pretty well and he’s released the video for the track ‘Stay Up.(Viagra)’ featuring the man of the moment Kanye West.

Click the pic for a link to the video. Can’t embed, sorry. Check Kanye and 88 running around in old man make up with a couple porn stars.

We’re back at it.
Peace.
CAP

Well HHHTwitters,

As I sit here still in sub zero weather (It’s the effin end of March — What the hell!?), I can only dream about the beauty that is Taiwanese Spring:  Hot, but not too hot.  Shorts for the boys, panty sized denim for the girls.  Xue Hua Bing and 7-11 crawls.  It truly is Waakao!

And while I have to unfortunately miss out on all the goodness my oral and ocular cavities would be exposed too (not to mention HHHT’s 7 AND 8 AND Soul Food Fridays — Damn Homie) I take comfort in the fact that the crew continues to demolish your calves and shins with the very best.

So, to ensure everyone’s getting their daily dose of goodies, here’s another small stockpile to tide you over.

Peter, Bjorn & John – Nothing to Worry About (Troublemaker Remix)

Ghostface & Doom (f.k.a. MF Doom f.k.a. Zev Love X) – Chinatown Wars

Original

Remix

And simply….dopeness from Mos — I was waitin for this.

Mos Def – Brooklyn (Go Hard)

Finally, some potential for dopeness (and even bigger potential for garbage), N.W.A. might be getting silver screen love.  Check it:

“Rap is finally getting the Ray treatment. New Line is developing Straight Outta Compton, an urban drama about N.W.A. (a.k.a. N-ggaz With Attitude), the hip hop group that helped pioneer the gangsta rap movement in the ’80s and early ’90s. The project will chronicle the rise and fall of the rap quartet, founded by Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and MC Ren, whose songs were so incendiary (i.e. “F— tha Police”) they were banned from radio playlists but still sold millions of albums. Then came the inevitable fiery breakup, a grudge match between the former bandmates, and Eazy-E’s tragic death due to AIDS. The film’s producers, which include Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Tomica Wright (Eazy-E’s widow), and Circle of Confusion entertainment, are now actively searching for a director along the lines of Curtis Hanson (8 Mile).”

I dunnooooo……

Rest people. We get it in.

Triple.
