Take It Personal Podcast (Ep 4: Wu-Tang Tribute)

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

To many, Staten Island is known as the dump. To us hip-hop heads, it’s known as Shaolin, the home of the Wu-Tang Clan. Who would have thought a group of 9 rappers would have changed the game, but they definitely did. Nobody has ever done hip-hop like WTC and I’m pretty sure nobody ever will. While The Wu is one of the most respected and beloved group of all-time, a two hour tribute doesn’t seem long enough. That said, here is our tribute that should help remind you that Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta F*ck Wit!

T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 23

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

SLT90s 23

 

It’s been two years since the last Sounds Like The 90’s. No excuses, so let’s just dive right into this. For those not hip to these series, it’s a compilation of recent music that has come over over the past year. The criteria is simple, it either has to sounds like or feature artists from the 90’s. The reality is, there isn’t much music these days that truly sounds like the 90’s, which is probably why it took forever to make Volume 23. Not all, but a lot of music completely misses our radar and that is the purpose of these compilations. Thanks for all those who continue to support Philaflava, Steady Bloggin and of course, T.R.O.Y.  –Jason Gloss

    So the Wu-Tang reunited on Jon Stewart last night…

    Friday, August 8th, 2014

    Listen, I love me some Wu but there are 9 active members as of now. You mean to tell me all 9 were okay with this atrocious hook on their new single “Ron O’Neal?” The song itself seems fine for 2014. It’s what you might expect, especially based on that new album cover. But daaaaaaaamn, we really gotta continue with these cheesy Miguel-type hooks for this group? I’m thoroughly pleased they’re all back and looking happy. Meth is on another planet the way Jon playfully puts his hand over his face while he is talking. U-God looks healthy. Cappadonna looking like the freshest cabbie we know. Masta Killa looks like an extra from Sons of Anarchy. Rae mumbling about some philosophical bullshit but at least he’s getting paid now.  All of this is good news but that hook. Yuck! What do you think about the latest Wu single?

    T.R.O.Y. & Certified Dope Apparel Present – Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 22

    Friday, September 20th, 2013

    It’s been a constant struggle to produce these lately, manly because I always feel I’m at an impasse with the selections. Is it too new sounding? Is it too dated? Is the quality of the mp3 good? Then of course, there is always, isn’t this track kinda played out by now?

    I know it’s hard to believe, but I really do put in work selecting, sequencing and creating the overall package for your CD-r or iTunes. This time around T.R.O.Y. and Certified Dope Apparel bring you volume 22, a compilation that features a collection of tracks that we feel exemplifies just how great hip-hop has been, even if a few joints are slightly aged by now.

    15+ years ago Ecko used to give mixtapes out with the purchase of their clothes. I never did rock much Ecko, but I made sure to rock those mixtapes. It was an ingenious idea by Mark Milecofsky Mark Ecko. Now 100 million dollars later you have Eckō Unltd. Not that we’re expecting to reach those levels but we feel we have something special with these 3 great collaborative shirts with Certified Dope. And of course, purchase or no purchase, we hope you enjoy our latest offering,  the Sounds Like The 90’s Vol. 22 .

    Vol. 22 takes us back in time, so extract the file, burn to a disc (56 mins total) or add to your playlist. Spread the word, spread the file and let’s celebrate hip-hop music.  I hope you enjoy Sounds Like The 90’s as much as I do creating them, even if it’s sometimes a challenge. –PhilaflavabomockbiggercousinmockbiggersologreymockbiggersolotankbiggerCLICK HERE TO ENTER STORE

    T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90’s Vol. 21

    Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

    SLT90s 21-front

    It’s been an awfully long time since we last dropped Sounds Like The 90’s, 586 days to be exact.

    Moving forward I will be doing my best to produce this series every 6-8 weeks. It’s hard gathering select tracks because as many of you know, there just isn’t a lot of music these days that remind us of the 90s.

    I make these compilations because it represents where we are today. It usually contains tracks that emphasize an era in which we all know will more than likely never be duplicated again.  Some tracks on these compilations contain contemporary music that might have a slight hint of that era. Others, well it may just contain an artist that was very relevant from the 90s. Overall, these are put together to showcase today’s music as a music time capsule.

    So, whether you like one track, ten tracks or all of them, enjoy these compilations for what they are. While terms like “exclusives” have become extinct due to new age technology and the blogsophere, we do our best to hand pick relatively newer material.

    Enjoy 21 and sorry for the wait.

    Ghostface Killah & MF Doom finally?

    Thursday, February 14th, 2013

    I don’t know what to believe anymore. There might be a better chance we see that Jay Electronica album first, but if Doomstarks does see the light of day, I know we’ll all be supporting. In other GFK news, check out SteadyBloggin’ for the latest release off the Adrian Young collabo. –Philaflava

    Wu-Tang Forever?

    Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

    Who ever thought we’d see the day our beloved Wu Tang members would desperately cling for relevancy? There is no denying the Wu is one of the greatest, most influential and successful groups of all-time. Growing up there was point when every Wu release was met with tremendous excitement and copped with ease. Even the Wu affiliates were copped, every one from Shyheim to GP Wu to Killarmy all the way to Royal Fam.

    They’ve been responsible for a plethora of classics, both solo and collective efforts. But if we’re all being honest here, we know the last release that was truly worthy of its praise was the ’09 Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. II. Way before that and certainly well after, there hasn’t been much and when I say before that, I meant for a long period of time. Once the dust settled and the hype dissolved, we later realized albums such as 8 Diagrams or the 11 year old Iron Flag were simply not up to par. They were not how we wanted to remember the Wu.

    T.R.O.Y.’s Unofficial Wu-Weekly (Week 27)

    Thursday, March 8th, 2012


    This dropped a little over a week ago, but I though it would be a great fit for the Wu-Weekly theme. A masterfully executed mix of DJ Premier beats and Ghostface vocals, loaded with interludes and kung fu samples. Another great project from Hevehitta & DJ Unexpected.

    from The Digger’s Union:
    Hevehitta x DJ Unexpected x Ghostface Killah x DJ Premier | Duel of the Iron Fists

    Never the types to rest on their laurels, Hevehitta & DJ Unexpected incorporate a new idea into their already diverse catalog. Known as the Mixtaep (the last 2 letters purposely reversed), it will come to be known as a mixtape EP for free download. These will be released occasionally, with various themes accompanying the project. For the first entry, they present “Duel Of The Iron Fists”, starring Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan and DJ Premier, legendary producer and 1/2 of Gangstarr. Continuing with their already infamous “Martial Arts Mixtape” series, this one features Ghostface Killah vocals over DJ Premier beats, with various kung-fu movie samples mixed in. Keeping a firm grip on their motto, “Enjoy And Be Educated”, there are also breakbeat sections for said artists, with original samples presented which would be the foundation for their respective hits. DJ Unexpected has also provided a write-up for the project, detailing the inspirations for each track presented here. Hevehitta & DJ Unexpected would like to thank all of their supporters and the artists involved for the inspiration. Enjoy and be Educated!

    You can stream via SoundCloud or download from their site, which also has an in depth track by track description.
