Today’s Mathematics: 5%er Rap Compilation

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

The DJ Premier Blog recently posted the CDQ version of the recent KRS-One and Grand Puba collaboration titled “5%” from the upcoming KRS-One/DJ Premier album “Return Of The Boom Bip.” The song, as you might guess, chronicles the rise of the Nation of the Gods and Earths in the NYC and all outlying counties in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. A while back I compiled songs that explicitly  incorporate 5%er teachings, so in light of renewed interest in the subject I added “5%’” and a few more cuts to the mix. Tracklist and download link are available after the jump. This is not an 85 affair. — Thun

Great EPs: King Sun x Cold Chillin’ – "Strictly Ghetto"

Monday, November 30th, 2009
For those of you that frequent the forum, you will undoubtedly have noticed the “Illest EPs Ever” thread that’s been ongoing for the past month or so. Too many dope EPs to name have been uploaded by numerous forum members.

One of the best EPs to be uploaded, in my humble opinion, is King Sun’s “Strictly Ghetto” EP. Released in 1994 on Cold Chillin’ Records, one look at the cover tells you this is a different King Sun than the one you remember from “Righteous But Ruthless.” Sun-D Moet traded in his kufi for a Carhartt jacket, and forging a harder-edged street-level experience for the listener. If you are a fan of the TROY blog, I guarantee you will love this record. The beats are top notch (I’m not sure who helmed the boards, as a Google search proves fruitless) and Sun definitely stepped up his lyrical game.

Unfortunately, the EP seemed to get lost in the decline and eventual demise of Cold Chillin’ Records shortly after it’s release. It’s currently out of print, but you can get a CD copy on Amazon for under $100…you know, if paying exorbitant prices for obscure early 90′s rap records is your thing.

Enjoy this dope little slice of ’94, courtesy of Echo Leader & the TROY blog.

King Sun, Rhymefest, & Percee P – Oct. 28

Friday, October 30th, 2009

This past Wednesday, I went to see the god Rakim @The Seventh Seal Tour in LA. Rhymefest is touring with Rakim. The video I’m posting is just incredible! Let me tell you the story. First, Rhymefest was doing his thing on stage and then he asked if there were any mc’s in the crowd. Percee P, who was in the crowd, tried to catch Rhymefest intention but he didn’t recognize him at first. Rhymefest even said something like “You got cds? You gotta be good to press up your own shit”. After he found out that it was Percee P, Rhymefest went on to rhyme “I’m Percee P, P stands for pimp…”. A couple minutes after that, who do I see coming in the crowd? King Sun! He went close to the stage, Percee P praised him. Then he saw Rhymefest and got on stage. The video starts with Rhymefest introducing the legendary King Sun, who then asks Percee P to jump on stage. Percee P didn’t touch the mic but King Sun killed it when he mentioned him throwing his cds!

I also recorded footage from Rakim’s performance which I have to do some editing before I post it. One thing I’m going to tell you is that there was this security guard that kept telling me & my bro to stop recording. Because of this shit, I didn’t get to record this moment when King Sun praised Rakim live on stage. I’m still mad about not getting it on tape! It was legendary!

One last thing, my brother got to talk to King Sun and while talking about the Strictly Ghetto EP, Sun told him that the track “Street Corner” was Mr. Magic’s last appearance on a record. R.I.P Mr. Magic.

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
