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

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!

DJ Filthy Rich – 90s Reggae vs. Hiphop Vol. 1

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

In the early 90s, U.S. record labels started signing the bigger dancehall reggae artists to North American deals. In order to appeal to the domestic market, they started commissioning producers to make hip hop remixes of lead singles. Guys like Salaam Remi, Kenny Dope, Bobby Konders, Clark Kent, KRS-One, and Trackmasters were among the beatmakers creating remixes that came to be more popular in America than the LP versions. These producers in turn enlisted guest verses from rappers like Biggie, Method Man, OGC, Q-Tip, Yo-Yo, and the Geto Boys to create popular combinations. Eventually rappers began seeking out guest verses from reggae artists. The reggae-hiphop sub-genre was suddenly created, and began to flourish.

Being a fan of both genres myself, the marriage of reggae over hip hop beats was a match made in heaven. I started collecting every single piece of vinyl I could find with these remixes.
I wanted to put my collection to use, and decided to create a series of mixes containing 90’s reggae artists over 90’s hip hop beats. Everything from popular hits to obscure white label-only remixes. Including my own custom blends of 90’s reggae acapellas over hiphop instrumentals from that time period. What began as a casual one-off “best of” type of mix, evolved into a multi-volume obsession. I even learned to produce my own party breaks just for this project.

I’ve finally finished the first volume, and wanted to share it here first for the Phila/TROY blog fam. BIG shout outs to certain forum members who contributed tracks/acapellas/instrumentals for this project, especially bbatson, step one, dirt dog, and jaz. Nuff respect. Special thanks to Juhmar for the artwork. -DJ Filthy Rich/djfilthyrich@yahoo.com

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

SOUNDS LIKE THE 90’S VOLUME 23

01 Black Eyed Peas – Yesterday
02 De La Soul – God It feat. Nas

06 Czarface – World Premier feat. Large Professor
07 KRS-ONE – Modern Day Gangsta feat. A.G. & Tragedy Khadafi
08 Capone-N-Noreaga – Foul 120 feat. Raekwon & Tragedy Khadafi
09 Large Professor – Dreams Don’t Die

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?

Schoolly D On The Good Road

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Schoolly_Shirt_On_Model_HIREZ

Certified Dope got you stuck in back-to-school clothing mode even though you’re damn near 35? Or maybe you’re just looking to get a head start on your holiday shopping. One way or another, the good folks at Good Road Goods have got you covered. Their officially licensed, fashion-fit tees celebrate the art of iconagraphy, capturing era-defining moments through classic photos like Linn Stevens’ portrait of Schoolly D and DJ Code Money, which some might remember from the back cover of Saturday Night! – The Album. To mark the occasion of this latest release, Good Road sat down with Schoolly himself to ask a few questions about the specifics of this 1986 West Philly photoshoot.

Not quite that old school? Then check out the B+ Los Angeles 1996 shirt featuring Method Man rocking a riotous West Coast crowd up close and personal. Brought to us by Brian Coleman, author of “Rakim Told Me: Hip-Hop Facts Straight From the Original Artists,” each of these post-streetwear garments will run you $28, but it goes to a good cause, namely Face to Face Germantown (for the Schoolly shirt) or the Ciné Institute (for the Meth).

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.

Erick Sermon “Breath Of Fresh Air” Mixtape

Friday, February 17th, 2012


Looks like The Green Eyed Bandit isn’t done yet. He just dropped this new Def Squad mixtape featuring KRS-One, Sheek Louch, 50 Cent, Keith Murray, Redman, Method Man & Jimi Hendrix!?!

Nice interview with E Double over at HIPHOP DX. This is the bit about the Hendrix track:

DX:
Let’s shift from the crew stuff to your new solo material … You noted on “I’m Not Him” from your Chilltown, New York album that you “gave Marvin Gaye’s wife two hundred grand” for “Music.” So how much did you have to break off the estate of Jimi Hendrix for “A Way Out”?

Erick Sermon:
Oh my God, I’m not even gonna talk about that ‘cause I’m not even gonna – I didn’t break off nothing, that’s why it’s on the mixtape. [Laughs] It ain’t like I have a label and I have Clive Davis, or me still having money like that, to be saying here’s [$150,000] for you Marvin’s estate and here’s 50 thousand for the lawyers. I don’t got that money these days. And I can imagine what Jimi Hendrix’s estate is asking for something like that. [So] that’s why it’s a mixtape.

Too bad there isn’t anyone on his staff that knows how to rip and tag a single mp3. Most tracks are 80 k/bit while the others are 160. Oh well.
