The Art Of Rap (Film Trailer)

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

I don’t know. Could go either way. Trailer is riddled with cliches and moments of unintentional hilarity. Hopefully Immortal Mo’Nique doesn’t take up too much camera time.

Ice-T – Non-Album Tracks

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Nowadays when you think of Ice you probably immediately think of curvy wife Coco and that’s okay because most of us do too. But years ago Mr. Tracy Marrow had some hits for that ass. While most would say Rhyme Pays or Power were their favorites, I’d have to go with The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech. In any event, this compilation of Non-Album Tracks were put together by T.R.O.Y. forum member and President of the Croatia Borkland Club, cicarista.

Big shout out goes out to him for gathering these tracks and to all the folks on the T.R.O.Y. forum. –Philaflava

Ras Kass Live Performance @Bike Day LA Hollywood, CA

Thursday, May 6th, 2010
Ras Kass performed live at the Bike Day LA free event in Hollywood, CA. Ras Kass performed a five track set with full energy; including the classics Goldyn Chyld (DJ Premier Remix) , Soul On Ice (Remix) , 3 Card Molly, & Ghetto Fabulous. Even thought it was a great performance from Ras Kass, you could tell that you weren’t in a “hip-hop” crowd. It was mostly “skaters, long hair, skinny jeans” type of dudes. That’s why I was surprised when I saw that Ras Kass was performing there. But being a hip-hop head, I still had to go check it out and show some support to Ras! The setting was really dope! Ras Kass performed live on a rooftop. The sound system was messed up in the beginning though, Ras Kass’s mic was too low. He noticed after the first track so they went and fixed it.
If you don’t know, Ras Kass is releasing an album titled “A.D.I.D.A.S.” with DJ Rhettmatic. The first track that they released is titled “Release Yourself“. They weren’t thinking of putting it on the album but with all the praises they received, they might now add it to the project. I talked to Ras Kass and he said that they have so many dope tracks that it’s hard to get everything together on a 70 minute CD.

Doo Wop & Sun Dullah (King Sun) – New York Love (1996) 2Pac Diss

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

All Eyez On Sun Lyrics

“You goin overboard with all that, fuck New York shit
trying to dis Brooklyn, but the Boogie ’bout to talk shit
and ain’t no fun, if the Dullah can’t get none
risin in the East, I’m bout to set it on the West, son
Listen, I ain’t even down with who you dissen
far as I’m concerned NY been ass-kissen
for the longest, on the live side I’ma dead it
you aint a trooper, I know that’s all super-unleaded
gas you inhaled from all your record sales
cause you went to California and blew up, but you fail
tryin to dis the big apple, I aint supposed to wanna battle
for a million dollar raffle? You gettin gaffled
soon as I see you got a million
after the battle, I be like “oooh what a feeeelin”
Toyota will be selling me they biggest Landcruiser
money green so niggas could fiend like drug users
winners slap users like pimp slap hoes
and we know Suge is pimpin them hoes on Death Row
you actin like you wanna beef, but talkin below me
you ain’t a real thug, you a real CaliPhoney
Who Shot Ya? No it wasn’t me and my peeps
you’re talking bout New York, wordup, like something sweet
don’t fool yourself, this ain’t New York Undercover
it’s real like the history of your father and mother
I’m sayin, think about that shit that you did
had a shootout in NY, raped a bitch, did a bid
like you proud of that, then let the world know it happened
first of all you fuckin up for other niggas’ rappin
how you makin movies, selling records, doin tours,
then be up in Denemora (sp), scrubbin other niggas’ drawers?
the whole point in being criminal is gettin paid
son, you paid already, actin Crazy like Eddie
fuck a Thug Life, niggas die being unlawful
let that peer pressure stress ya somethin awful
with the world in ya hand, fuck a man, be a King
you aint even a man cause you under the wing
Heltah Skeltah from the shelter, need protection
now you’re one of Suge Knight’s sons, runnin for election
against Snoop Dogg for that top dog spot
Death Row, Prisoner-of-the-month on lock.
Now everybody know you from them roles you be playin
so all that make a record shit aint even worth sayin
west coast rappers go platinum in a second
cause west coast niggas go out and buy records
but east coast rappers be on conceited shit
the wack emcees here make repeated hits
they get star-struck and stop giving a fuck
and lyrically, half these niggas suck, and what
just put the real rappers in the ring
let your man bring the beats and whoever do they thing
fuck a record sale, fuck a phoney reputation,
fuck a pimp record label and them suck-dick stations.
Show skills, how ya flow skills, rock a party-
live from the heart, in front of everybody
without a shotty, ain’t no need for all that
get your stupid ass some rikers & tracks, fuck the gats
my people out in Cali aint got nothin to do with this
you on your own dick, partner, and you new to this
I could never dis my peeps in the west
but, that dissin Biggie shit, we still ain’t impressed…”

Here’s a blog from King Sun on his Myspace about the diss:

“Ok, I was the first to respond with a dis record towards Tupac when he first dissed Tribe Called Quest at the Source Awards in ’94. Since Tupac appeared on “California” wit Dre, I felt the need to respond wit “Califony” and derived the hook from the Die Hard movie when Bruce Willis was a cop from NY and had beef in Cali. Every time he killed an adversary his reply was “Yippie Kay Ya Mother Fucker.”

The beat was produced by DJ Mark the 45 King and was cut up by Funk Master Flex in D&D Studios in Midtown Manhattan. Shout outs to Doug and Dave. I then allowed Doo Wop to put the song on his mixtape to generate a buzz. Tupac and I discussed the dis song after having Ice-T play it for Pac. We laughed together over the phone and Pac new it was nothing personal, but I had to rep NY to the fullest. Shout outs to Ice-T, who’s like my older cousin from the Left Coast who has always held me down, to WC Crazy Toons, DJ Aladdin, DJ Pooh, Evil E and Hen G and Shawny Shawn.

Rest in peace Pac. Our love goes out to Mrs. Shakur. Tell BIG I said “Hold some equality for me and Lady Heron and be at the door with Jesus so we can get in!”

Doo Wop played his record with King Sun on his critically acclaimed Summer Jam ’96 mixtape. Doo Wop also goes at 2Pac & The Dogg Pound at the end of the tape. Notice how the mixtape only features East Coast artists. This was around the time of Hit’ Em Up. According to DJ King Shammek, King Sun had also recorded another diss record titled “Don’t Know How To A.C.T.” directed at Westside Connection
