I’m not going to make excuse on why I haven’t posted in over 2 weeks. I been damn busy, and It doesn’t even matter. All that does matter is that I got some things for your earholes. Chalk this up to the “things i’ve been feeling recently” series. Meanwhile, sit tight cause we got goodies in the can and some special things lines up (Gabe, what up?!).
DJ Spinna – Dillagence (One 4 Jay) (feat. Phonte of Little Brother)
The homie JDL got at me about this cut. Likely part of the whole homage wave of cuts that started coming out after Dilla passed, this was releases as a 45 by Spinna and made it on the Mick Boogie & Busta Rhymes DILLAGENCE mixtape (though that version has Busta running his mouth on the cut). This is pretty crazy actually. It features Phonte from Little Brother doing his best Dwele impression. He runs through a mess of “classic” Slum Village and Dilla lines. Spinna is the dude… more on that later.
Lil Wayne – Always Strapped
“Strawberry paint, seats vanilla puddin”. nuff said. Weezy is crazy with it. is this dude ever gonna release another album or just pump out 50 tracks a month for mixtapes? Why is this shit so catchy? Oh yeah, Juelz Santana is on this cut too if anyone cares. YOUNG MONEY!
Dark Sun Riders – Dark Sun Riders
Man, I slept on this album bad in 96. Recently it’s been back in my earholes in heavy rotation. I’ve been an X-Clan fan for a while yet for some reason never really caught up with Dark Sun Riders. Brother J formed Dark Sun Riders after X-Clan split up in 94 (before the reassembly of X-Clan). This cut is definitely good shit though. You gotta give it up to artist/bands that have songs that are their names…
Dark Sun Riders – Dark Sun Riders (Ultra Jazz Mix)
Pete Rock – Heard Em Say f. Vanessa Sanchez
Pete Rock with a Kanye West cover AND on the positive tip? What’s going on. This is dope though, and I think the 12″ is from 2006 actually. Pete is making moves as of late and coming with a new album for 08. The new Jim Jones (We Roll) cut is cool by me, I ain’t mad. I got high hopes for the new album. Hit up Metal Lungies on the Pete Rock comeback already.
LASTLY… FUCK that new Michael Jackson and Akon shit . Seriously, what the fuck is this? I heard this shit in the car the other day and nearly ran that shit off the road. Y’all need to leave them Michael Jackson songs alone. MICHAEL… shame on you!
