I review the brand new Netflix series centered around the birth of Hip-Hop music and culture “The Get Down”. Check out the podcast Hip-Hop NOW Podcast available at Soundcloud.com/HipHoPolitic and more!
Check out my review of the documentary “All Things Must Pass:The Rise and Fall of Tower Records” Peace…
Check out my review of the documentary “Fresh Dressed”! The Revolution of Fashion Born On The Streets… Forgive the edits…this one was salvaged from numerous errors. Peace…
This song just doesn’t get old. Classic 80s Hip-Hop! This week’s Re-Release is Mc Lyte’s “Paper Thin”.
I was a guess on the Live From The Writer’s Bench hangout this past week. The topic? “TOP 5 Debut Albums Not Named Illmatic” Check it out:
One of the greatest posse records of all time…hands down. Why? A crew of some of the hottest rappers at the time came together for this track and no one had a wack verse. The western themed track and video was just icing on the cake. This week’s Re-Release is Marley Marl and the Juice Crew’s “The Symphony”.
Never in a million years did I think anyone could do “Deep Cover” over and do it justice. Pun did that. One of his hottest verses ever. Fat Joe was there too. Lol! Nah, he did his thing but Pun’s bars stand out. This week’s Re-Release is Big Punisher’s “Twinz (Deep Cover)”.
I wasn’t feeling the album as whole but there was no denying some of the tracks on their debut. This is that pure 90s bootcamp clik sound. Go ahead…head nod. You know that you want to. Lol! This week’s Re-Release is O.G.C.’s “No Fear”.
This was probably my favorite song from this duo. I know, I know. It’s clearly a radio ready commercial record aimed at broadening their fan base….what’s wrong with that? I thought it was a cool song and a “perfect” video for the content. This week’s Re-Release is Cella Dwella’s “Perfect Match”.
Raekwon releases his 6th solo album today. So it’s only right that I post a recent classic. This week’s Re-Release is Raekwon feat. Method Man and Ghostface Killah “New Wu”.
Last week I got the opportunity to chop it up with the brother’s of The Writer’s Bench about 2 Pac. Does the East Coast respect 2 Pac as an mc? Check it out:
Since the legendary Afrika Bambaataa has been making the rounds with interviews lately, it’s only right… This week’s Re-Release is Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force’s “Planet Rock”. Classic!
