Get Your Game On with Hip Hop Bingo

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Mixing hip hop and bingo to liven up the night

Over the years, bingo has gained so much popularity that even celebrities are playing the game for charity. Actors like Russell Crowe (who used to be a bingo hall caller) and musicians like Bono (U2’s front man), have admitted to playing the game for their favorite charities. Since its invention in 1929, the game has attracted different games. From Facebook to horse racing bingo, the game has definitely influenced fashion, art, food, and even music. Recently, another variation of bingo has emerged—hip hop bingo.

Basically, playing hip hop bingo isn’t that different from the games you’ll find on CheekyBingo. On each bingo card, you’ll find 25 squares arranged in five horizontal rows, vertical columns, and one space marked “Free” in the middle. Numbers are placed on each space in the grid, which you’ll need to mark off once the DJ calls them. The only variation to this game is that you’ll have to yell “Hip Hop!” instead of “Bingo!” when you’ve formed a prescribed pattern. Then, you’re required to run up the stage and dance to the beats with the other winners. To make things more fun and unique, organizers usually include odd prizes like broomsticks wrapped in leopard print, a bronze frog statue, or a chewing gum necklace.

The Best Complementary Emcee?

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

Hip-Hop, for the most part, has always been a team sport. While it’s refreshing to hear soloists like Rakim, Nas, Jay-Z and now Jay Electronica, it has been the one-two punch of many groups such as EPMD, Organized Konfusion, RUN-DMC, The Artifacts, Ultramagnetic MC’s, Tha Alkaholiks, Mobb Deep, UGK or OutKast that we quickly flock to when craving that lyrical tag-team dynamic.

So the question is who do you feel is the best complementary MC of all-time?

I won’t run a poll because it will do no justice given the plethora of 2-man MCing groups out there. Instead I ask for you to tell us, leave your answer in the comment section and let us know who is your pick and why. Keep in mind there are many groups out there, we’re specifically talking about groups with 2 emcees such as The Clipse, A Tribe Called Quest or De La Soul, not duos such as Gang Starr, Black Sheep, Pete Rock & CL Smooth or Boogie Down Productions. –Philaflava

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

The first volume of Illegal Remixes assembled by Step One proved quite popular, so here’s another batch of unofficial remixes for you.

There’s a good variety of flavours on this one, ranging from straight-up Hip Hop on the Meth, Xzibit and Mobb Deep tracks, to the reggae re-rubs of the Jungle Brothers and Fugees joints.

As with the first set, some of these are ripped from vinyl, others have been posted on blogs and forums.

Who Flipped It Better? More Moaning Samples

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

This time around we’re looking at The Five Stairsteps soul 45, “Danger, She’s A Stranger.”

After the nice 12 second bass intro, is a pretty addictive moaning/singing type sample.

Then, some dope horns drop in the mix, then flutes.
This is a pretty great soul 45 to pick up, if you see it.

Five Stairsteps – Danger, She’s A Stranger

And now for a bunch of tracks that flip it, chop it, and interpret it in their own way.
Surprisingly to me, Everlast’s song makes the most out of the samples, but Blackstract has
probably my favorite song on this list with “I Stole Your Girl”. Strangely, for a crew that only
released 3 records, they use the same sample again on “Diary Of A Mad MC”, which is nowhere
near the caliber of their other selection, to me.
The most known joint here is nice, too, Two Dope Boyz (In Cadillacs), but probably the most
basic.
Blackstract – I Stole Your Girl
Everlast – On The Edge
Outkast – Two Dope Boyz (In A Cadillac)
Wu-Syndicate – Golden Sands
The Candy Store – Escape From Belize
Cooly Live – All Possibilities
Cookie Crew – Fade To Black
Blackstract – Diary Of A Mad MC
Give each track a listen and list your favorites in the comments. Feel free to explain your choice or not.
