T.R.O.Y. Guest Blogger w/Meyhem Lauren

Monday, February 25th, 2013

meyhem

If you’ve been following T.R.O.Y. for awhile it’s no secret we’ve been day one supporters of Meyhem Lauren, so it was only natural we ask the big homie to help set-off  Guest Blogger for ’13 with his Top 10 Grimiest NYC Tracks of All-Time.

Do yourself a favor and get acquainted with one of the realest and truest throwbacks hip-hop has today. Check out his debut double album Self Induced Illness available  on Amazon. You can also download his two must-own mixtapes Respect The Fly right here or Mandatory Brunch Meetings here. –Philaflava

10) Onyx - Walk in New York
“NYPD CAN SUCK MY DICK!”
 9) ODB – Brooklyn Zoo
Dirty sets the tone of the song from the second that it starts.
 8) Shabazz The Disciple – Crime Saga
This record is perhaps the most detailed and descriptive crime story ever. Shabazz has a flow that is unmatched on this record.
7)  Cormega Feat. Mike Delorian - Fuck Nas
Even though this track was a diss record specifically about Nas and nature it embodies the general sound of that grimy Queens NYC rap that raised me. “Fuck gold chains and sneakers I had that when cocaine was cheaper”
6) M.O.P. – Cold Word
“Slum ass wanna be hard ass nigga / cornball butter soft lard ass nigga!” Nobody keeps in grimier then Fame and Billy I could have picked 10 M.O.P. songs if I wanted to compose this list but I decided to go with this one. “It’s a cold world so bitch nigga dress warm!”
5) Tragedy Khadafi Feat. Imam Thug – True Confessions
“Clappin Co’s bustin PO’s right in their knee caps” Not only is this track a grimey NYC street life anthem but the skill level and wordplay that Trag and Imam hit you in the head with is flawless. This beat epitomizes the sound of real inner city gorilla rap.
4) 50 Cents – Thicker Then Water
 ”Move during the jux you know I’m gon’ shoot so you gonna pay me or the hospital duke/ don’t call me to feature I don’t wanna rap with ya I brought my knife in the club I came to scrap with ya!
3) Capone & Noreaga Bloody Money.
Even though Parole violators has the grimiest lyrics on the War Report ” Bloody Money is undisputably a NYC street anthem and should be listened to at a high volume while drinking Hennessy or cleaning a fire arm.
2)  Kool G Rap – Take ‘Em To War Feat. MF Grimm &  B One
Take em to war “Grimm gimmie the infrared and semi and I’m puttin red dots on niggas foreheads and making muthafuckas Indian you got beef go get yourself a wreath because its murder cause I put holes in my beef like fuckin white castle burgers.”
 1) Mobb Deep – Shook Ones Pt. 2
This record was special not only because the production and rhymes were flawless but because it was also a commercial success and caused a whole wave of NYC street anthems to drop soon after.

In Loving Memory of Russell Jones

Friday, November 16th, 2012


It was an eventful week in hip-hop. Between the new releases from Roc Marciano, Action Bronson and Captain Murphy, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that Tuesday November 13 marked the eighth anniversary of ODB’s death or that yesterday would’ve been his 42nd birthday. Likewise, you’ll forgive us for not putting a memorial post together in time for either of these dates.

Apology accepted? Good, now let’s get on with the show.

In Loving Memory of Russell Jones is a double CD compilation arranged and sequenced by Dreddy Kruger. Released on Sandbox Automatic (and maybe a few other sites), it came packed with a t-shirt bearing the same artwork as the cover above. Comprised of everything from hit singles and Wu-Tang cuts to random guess spots, radio freestyles and of course classic skits, this out-of-print 45-track release is not to be missed. Disc 1 / Disc 2

When you’re done with that, be sure to check out G. Brown Presents Legend of the Drunken Master, a best-of mixtape that was also included in the deal mentioned above. Apart from the standard ODB fare, it features several DJ remixes (some banging acappella-instrumental blends) and two unreleased songs: “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” featuring Macy Grae, and an original version of the classic Wu-Tang Forever joint “Reunited,” on which ODB spits an entirely different verse than the one that made the album cut.

As the God said unto his hos, “YOU THINK WE DON’T LOVE YOU MOTHERFUCKERS?!”

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-Wednesday (Week 20)

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Editor’s Note: More like Wu-Weekly at this point, but never Wu-Weakly, ya heard?

Much less than a mixtape, more like a roughly assembled compilation (thanks Dreddy). But back in 2005 Wu-Tang and Alife hooked up for some extremely limited shirts and hats and even a magazine cover. These were later followed by some more tee’s and sneakers. Some decent tracks, but I really enjoy the Don King phone call (#30). For some reason they released two versions of “A Wu-Tang Life NYC.” Both have a lot of similar tracks, but are not identical.

Alife & Think Differently Music Group-Presents… A Wu-Tang Life NYC (Version 2) (2005)
01 Raekwon The Chef-State Of Grace
02 Method Man-Take The Heat
03 Think Differently-ODB Dead (Skit)
04 Ol Dirty Bastard feat. RZA-Skrilla
05 Lord Superb-Short Darts
06 Raekwon The Chef-Treasurers
07 RZA-Outlines
08 Raekwon The Chef and Supernatural-Black Opera
09 Ghostface-Be Easy
10 Inspectah Deck-Make A Move
11 Trife Da God-Hustle Hard
12 RZA and GZA-Wu-Tang Financial (Interlude) (Live On The Dave Chappelle Show)
13 DJ Muggs vs. GZA feat. Masta Killa and Prodigal Sunn-Hip Hop
14 La Tha Darkman feat. Method Man-United
15 Think Differently-Is This Good (Skit)
16 Ghostface and Raekwon The Chef-The Kilos

Prince Rakeem & Ason Unique Live @ Talent Show

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Don’t know exact year of this video, but obviously it’s something between ’90-’91, i guess.

Anyway that was one funny as hell performance. Funny lines everywhere.

Later that verse, in little bit modified version, appeared on ODB’s first album, on “Don’t U Know” track, 3rd verse.

Enjoy!
