Which one will prevail?

Does anyone like Part III? Is that an official sequel? Who decides such things? The Borough President?

Why did Jeru stop rapping like that?

Did Barbara Walters ever respond to Chubb Rock’s dis?

Was hot peas and butter a harmless urban pastime or ritualized violence?

D-Nice Television: True Hip Hop Stories Pt. 2

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

This is nothing else than amazing footage.

We have used only one interview so far from D-Nice TV, and was an interview with Dres, during our Native Tongue month.
Well now it’s about time point you, if you haven’t seen it so far, with all of those amazing interview, which will bring you back in the days for a minute.
Enjoy and thanks to D-Nice for this footage and we can only say, keep ’em coming.
“This is the story of a homeless rapper I met on the streets of Brooklyn. I feel for him because it’s quite obvious he suffered a great deal as a child. I don’t agree with how he lived his life but everyone deserves to be forgiven”.

Omar Epps’ Wolfpack

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

Omar Epps may have got his first start as “Q” in the movie Juice and some of you may best know him as Dr. Eric Foreman in the medical drama House , but before Hollywood started knocking Omar Epps was struggling Brooklyn rapper who was apart of the group Wolfpack along with his brother.

Wolfpack never dropped an album but they did release a single titled “Definition” in 1995 once Omar had a little money and some clout. I remember the video used to play like crazy on YO! but it was impossible to find the single in stores. For those who never got a chance to peep, now is your chance!

In addition to his short-lived rapping career, Omar Epps has also directed videos for Heather B. and Special Ed’s “Neva Go Back.”

Special Ed-Legal

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Special Ed-Legal (1990)

This was young Brooklyn-born Edward Archer’s second album and after the success of The Youngest In Charge (1989), Profile marketed him as some kind of rap heartthrob. Ignore the album cover and go straight to the music. Once again Ed hooked up with the great Hitman Howie Tee who laced Ed with hype tracks for him to get busy to.

Special Ed had one of the smoothest flows in Hip Hop history, check “Come On, Let’s Move It” where he goes to work over a loping Bobby Byrd track or the Salt and Pepa sampling “The Mission” which also sports the banging drums from Billy Squire’s “Big Beat.” Ed had skills and could tell great stories -on “The Mission” he rhymes “Picked up the phone, yo who the hell is this? / Somebody said this is serious business.”

Ed gets busy over the dope and sparse drums of “I’m Special Ed” and the early Gang Starr sampling “Ya Wish Ya Could,” which also flips the infamous Honeydrippers-”Impeach The President” drums and samples Johhny “Guitar” Watson, with Ed boldly stating that all he needs is “just a mic and a track”.

“Ready 2 Attack” samples Rado & Company’s “Where Do I Go” three years before Pete Rock used it for Run DMC’s “Down With The King” and hard hitting Kool and The Gang drums allow Ed to wreck the mic, alongside a Big Daddy Kane vocal sample used for the hook.

“I’m The Magnificent” gets the remix treatment and “Living Like A Star” has Ed attacking a dope beat,while the posse cut “5 Men & A Mic” has Ed sharing mic duties with his brother, his DJ, Aksun, and Little Shawn. Legal was a great follow up album and still sounds dope a good 18 years later.

1. Come On, Let’s Move It
2. The Mission
3. Ya Not So Hot
4. I’m The Magnificent (The Magnificent Remix)
5. I’m Special Ed
6. Ya Wish Ya Could
7. Ready 2 Attack
