Re-Release Tuesdays “Da Rockwilder”

This one used to bang back in the day. Clubs, whips, headphones, whatever. It was a  short track but I don’t think I would of like it if it were longer.  This week’s Re-Release is Method Man and Redman’s “Da Rockwilder“.

“Hip-hop fans have known for years that Method Man and Redman are two of the top MCs in the field, and their tour together not only proved the fact, but also showed they rap incredibly well together. Their deliveries are similar and the flow never falters, but the hint of gravel in Meth‘s voice makes them easily distinguishable. Now, with Blackout!, the duo’s first album together (though both guested on each other’s 1998 LPs), listeners have the proof on wax. Skating on top of spare, hard-hitting productions by Erick SermonWu-Tang‘s RZAMathematics, and Redman himself — under hisReggie Noble alias – Meth and Redman trade off on hardcore rhymes and freestyle over each other. There’s barely room for breath, but the rhymes are tight and inventive throughout. There are only two guest appearances (for Ja Rule & LL Cool J on “4 Seasons” and Ghostface and Street on the hilarious Blair Witch Project send-off “Run 4 Cover”), and the focus on just Meth and Redman makes for an even tighter, more combustible LP. Even with the high expectations that come along with a project of this magnitude, Blackout! rarely disappoints.” -


Special Delivery- “I See”


This one goes out to YOU…AND YOU….AND YOU.

“Is this what it’s all about Manny?” Dude punch you in the mouth and its business as usual? I see. This backpack? This ain’t about money? This some beneath you and your peoples thing?

This is so insignificant to you and yours. Is he not a formidable foe? Is it easier when it’s a battle you could win? I see. Ninjas are mad? Maybe if you remain silent we’ll forget. NO CHANCE IN HELL.

I don’t want to be one to drag this out but, the responses thus far mean jack sh*t if your name wasn’t mentioned. This isn’t hard fellas. You don’t have to win. We need you to stand your ground though. I can’t stomach your speeches if “this look like Kane whooping your a$$.”

You can still get your money. Your fans will still check for you. I know you are planning a response that will marketing written all over it. Do it now. YOU SCARED?! What do you have to lose? I see. “Things just ain’t the same for Gangstas…”

Re-Release Tuesdays “Hit ‘Em Up”


Given the current events in hip-hop (exciting times), this song seems all too appropriate. This week’s Re-Release is 2Pac’s “Hit Em Up“.

“Greatest Hits is a strange release. Sure, Tupac Shakur had more than enough hits to make a terrific compilation, but its appearance in the fall of 1998 felt a bit like another opportunity to milk his catalog, simply because of the plethora of releases, from previously unheard recordings to interview discs and bootlegs. Even with these misgivings taken into account, it has to be said that Greatest Hits does its job well. Given that it runs 25 tracks and two CDs, some may argue that it does its job a little too well, but the fact of the matter is, this contains all of his big hits, from “Keep Ya Head Up” and “Dear Mama” to “California Love” and “I Ain’t Mad at Cha.” Some may argue that it would have been more effective if it was sequenced in chronological order, but this remains the best place for casual listeners to get all the 2Pac they need.” -
