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

Hamilton man, 42, killed when car overturns

Sunday, April 05, 2009


HAMILTON–A township man died after losing control of his vehicle turning onto Bunting Avenue from Lalor Street yesterday evening, police said.

Police were investigating why Anthony Depula, 42, lost control of his car at 6:20 p.m. The 2002 purple Jeep went up over the curb and struck the fence of St. John’s Cemetery, causing the vehicle to overturn onto its passenger side.

Depula was unconscious at the scene and was transported to Capital Health Systems at Fuld, where he was pronounced dead, according to police. He was not wearing a seat belt and sustained an injury to his neck.

Known as “Tony” to the neighbors, they said Depula and his family lived on Bunting Avenue, but police would not confirm that information. Depula’s car had a white posterboard on the passenger’s side with the words “Cha-Ching Records” etched on the side, a Hamilton address and a 609 area code number.

About a dozen neighbors rushed to the overturned vehicle, shattering the windshield to try to get the man out, said John Skoglund, from the 200 block of Henry Street.

“We tried to get him out. He was too heavy to get out through the windshield,” Skoglund said, adding that “it was a while, a good 10 minutes” before police or other emergency personnel responded at the scene. But police said they were there within a minute of the accident being called in.

A group of neighbors had pushed the truck up, getting Depula out from the passenger’s side of the car, Skoglund said, adding that while they were pulling him out, the police came and assisted them.

Joe Crupi, of the 600 block of Lalor Street, said Depula was blue in the face and unresponsive when he was pulled out of the car.

A Henry Street woman who did not want her name printed, said she saw the overturned car and people rushing to help the man from her window.

She said she saw Depula’s wife run up the street screaming for her husband, but that emergency workers wouldn’t let her see him.

Some of the witnesses gathered and a nearby neighbor said the intersection is dangerous, with people whizzing by on a one-way street, and some others occasionally driving on the wrong side of the road.

Pointing to a baseball field on Bunting Avenue, Crupi said children walk up the street to play there all the time.

“It could have been a lot worse,” Crupi said.

Hamilton police officer Brian Carvale is investigating the accident. Police are asking anyone who was with Depula prior to the crash to call (609) 581-4000 or (609) 581-4024.
