It shouldn't work, but a brass band version of the Sugarhill Gang turns out to be genius!

Corrine Bailey Rae.  Wow.  This is my fifth or sixth time through this album so I'm really starting to hear it.  She's really good and this is good material for her.  A little off the beaten pop trail.  I recommend it.

I don't get much of a chance to listen to music that much anymore, what with kids, work, and everything else.. (Did I mention work? well it should be listed twice just for the amount of time it takes from me..) So my music is confined to Whip's. And here's what I like when I drive each.

While Driving the wife's mini-van. Damn thing cost more then my Vette. Fricking DVD, Bose Sound system, Stow & HO. rear camera, Auto-matic doors and lift gate. Sheesh!! I  must have lost hafl it's value just driving off the lot!!

I listen to:
Old school. Papa Jhon Creech..
I'm a sucker fo the blues. Since I can't find much of the old classics on CD I've made Cd's dub's from my vinyl. And the Van has a MP3 player. (well it should fo what it cost!!) Besides every time I drive the mini-van I get the blues.. LOL

For the Vette:
OLd School.  AC/DC LIve.. yah yah I know I'm just an old dude rocker. But there's nothing like pumping out some AC/DC while touring about.
Also LUDloulouloudicriss!! "I drive two miles an hour so eveybody see's me!"

For the work rig, Dodge hemi Big honking truck. I dig on the new sounds..
New School  The soundtrack to: Hustle & Flow.
New School (And I see RH feels me on this..) Connie Ray B... My favorite track being "Call me when you get this" I also like "Trouble Sleeping" and "Breathless".
New School I've been diggin on Akon, both hits "Wanna Love you" with Snoop and "Smack That" with Eminem

For the Jeep:
I don't know why I feel I got to listen to country when I driving that lil jeep but damn if I don't keep putting some Hee haw crap in everytime??
New: Carrie Underwood (Is it the music? or is it that she's just plain HOT!)
Old: George Strait (Say what you will, but that old dude can sing and plays a damn mean guitar too)

For the Jag..
Well this is the family out to dinner vheicle.. so It's like "The Missing Teens" music for young adults..  arggg mostly but hey the kids dig it and not all of it is that bad.

The motorcycle.. Nothing! but the sound of the wind... hey I live in MN, I only get to ride the thing in the summer, sometimes I get lucky and the summer happens on a weekend. :)

Love your broad taste in music, Goat.  And that you're man enough to admit you've got a mini van.  Of course, with a Jag, a Vette and a motorcyle, your manhood is firmly in place.

Yea LOL I didn't even mention the PUNK rock years! let's just say I still have a signed poster of the Violent Femmes! LOL!

On the whips, Like Chili Palmer said "It's the Caddillac of Mini-Vans" Ha!

Come to think of it, What are you driving Reg? Hold on I'll start a thread (OH no Goat is starting a thread!! whodathunkit!) Maybe a Show you're Whip! thread. Look for it and let me know what you're wheels are! or bette yet post a pic of her.

"The Very Best of Oleta Adams" ....saw her live in Chicago 3 years ago w/Peabo Bryson, Jody Watley and Jon Secada and she is phenomenal.  So underrated...one of the best voices of my generation (right behind Phyllis Hyman).  And she plays many of her own instruments.....

Also, "Fabrica de Nueva York" by the Nyorican Soul Orchestra with production by Masters at Work...Brazilian jazz, soul and r&b...with performances by Jocelyn Brown, George Benson, Roy Ayers and India...an opus of musical tastes.

Rakim "The 18th Letter" ......a rap GOD.

I has birth of the cool before it was stolen. Strangely I thought I had to work harder to "feel it" then I did with bitches brew. I popped bitches brew right in and was like wow. Even Aura wasn't the challenge that birth of the cool was. I will pick it up again and try harder to get the nuances and such to see if it can hit me differently again.

I can understand that, blue.  The things is The Birth of the Cool really is the birth of the cool.  It's the beginning of that style and it isn't quite fully formed.  It is radical compared to what came before.  Kind of Blue is a masterpiece of modal jazz whereas BOTC is an exploration of a new direction.  Maybe Lion can speak on it.

That Tower's been gone a while, turned into a Virgin Megastore a good few years back. The big VM on Oxford Street is still there as well, no changes. There used to be a decent branch of Tower in one of the suburban towns near me, Kingston-Uopn-Thames, but that closed a while back, too. No more Tower. :'(

Speaking of Alexander O'Neal....his 2005 "Live at The Apollo (London)" is cool as all break out.  Maybe his commercial success was limited due to his personal problems with drugs...takes out some of the best.

Still jammin Stephanie Mills' 2004 independent release "Born For This!" with the incomparable "Healing Time"....real r&b and soul music.

New soul man on the block who deserves mad props for natural talent....Jaheim's "Ghetto Classics" with "The Chosen", "I Aint Never", "125th" and "Like A DJ" being serious standouts.

And one of the all time greatest soul singers....Donny Hathaway has a cd out that I always play called "A Donny Hathaway Collection".  He is more than a treasure with mad skills. 

On the jazz front....Sonny Rollins' "Plus 4" and Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers' "Mosaic".

"Earth Ah Run Red" by Richie Spice

Actually, I'm listening to my Reggae/Dancehall collection. A majority of it consists of old stuff  though ranging with a handful of tracks from the 70s, the 80s, an "ass-load" from the 90s and a few that have been recently releeased. I am of the adamant opinion there is not a music genre as beautiful as reggae or dancehall (or even soca when it's done right).

Hype, looking into compilations is a very wise idea so seven out of the ten I listed have tracks by various artists. I humbly would recommend that you check out the following,

"Strictly Ragga"
"Strictly The Best Volume 11"
"Strictly the Best Volumer 18"
"Wonderful World, Beautiful People" by Jimmy Cliff
"Lethal Riddims: Dancehall Explosion '93"
"Get Next To Me" by Glen Washinston
"Reggae Max" by Beres Hammond
"Reggae Gold 95"
"Planet Reggae 2000"
"Strictly The Best Volume 16"

Hopefully you find something(s) you like.

 just copped this from Amazon, after noticing it for the first time a few weeks back. Looks like Traffic Entertainment is the new incarnation of Landspeed Records, and they still have the Cold Chillin' (and B-Boy) hip-hop catalogs at their disposal. Good work here on the reissue. More labels should pay attention to what they have..
Kool G Rap-- His lisp is still crisp-- Possessing one of the most distinctive voices in hip-hop, he blazed a trail for several rappers to follow, despite being relatively unknown by mainstream standards. He's kind of like Iggy Pop of the hip hop world-- he never sold a tremendous amount of records, but he maintains a cult following that won't quit, while scores of newcomers point to him as an influence.
The 2 disc collection starts off in the late-1980's, back when the Marley Marl-led "Juice Crew" was among the early hip-hop posses to achieve prominence, being signed to Prism Records, which eventually would become Cold Chillin'. Shortly afterwards, label head Ty Williams secured a distribution deal with Warner Bros.
"I'm Fly" and "It's a Demo" are sparse early tracks which makes listeners focus even more on Kool G's lyrics. At this time, he was somewhere between LL Cool J and Rakim, spouting whimsical braggadocio with occasional inflections of sober battle-ready aggression. His technique would be fine-tuned on his first album, "Road to the Riches", featuring the title cut, "Dope Car" (sampling Gary Numan), "Poison", and "Men at Work". Marley's 808-driven funk production is at it's best here. The first disc has the original album and a few bonus cuts including the early, non-album singles. The second disc has a great collection of rarities, including radio promos & interviews, as well as alternate takes, remixes & instrumentals which were previously only available on 12" maxi-singles during the original release of the album (the best of the bunch: an alternate take of Big Daddy Kane's "Raw" featuring Kool G. The collection has better than average liner notes, including commentaries from photographer George DuBose, Ty Williams and Kool G Rap himself. There are also lyrics printed for all the original songs.

Just picked this up from Amazon-- golden-era heads unite...

Artist:  Stezo (pronounced: Steez-Oh)
LP:  Crazy Noise
Label:  Fresh (1989), Traffic (2006)

Stezo, aka Stezo-E, (real name:  Steve Williams), was a Connecticut native turned Brooklyn transplant whose hip-hop aspirations led him to become a dancer for hip-hop group EPMD.  Leaving the group’s auspices shortly after the “Run’s House” tour of 1988, he was signed by Sleeping Bag/Fresh Records, and became a labelmate to his former crew.  In 1989, “Crazy Noise” was released, to great acclaim in hip-hop circles and major spins on hip-hop friendly radio.  Unfortunately, Sleeping Bag/Fresh would end up declaring bankruptcy in 1990, thus short-circuiting Stezo’s career momentum.  He would not make another mainstream album, but this LP is fondly remembered as a “done in one” snapshot.  Production is credited to the artist (and during the LP Stezo shouts-out to partner DJ Jimmy Slice), though legendary, late hip-hop producer Paul C apparently had quite a bit of input on the album, as did Stezo's cousin Dooley-O & Chris Lowe.  Samples are plenty here, with breakbeats and riffs that have become trademarks of the Golden Era sound.  Standout tracks on the 12-cut album include "Bring The Horns", "Freak The Funk", "Talking Sense", and "Getting Paid", among others.  "Girl Trouble", in the tradition of EPMD’s “Jane”, is a tale of misadventures with the opposite sex.  The instrumental “Jimmy's Getting Funky” gives Stezo’s turntable man the spotlight—a common practice in this era of hip-hop.  The most remembered cut on the album is “It’s My Turn”, a just-under 4-minute jam that samples the legendary rhythm track ‘Skull Snaps’ (George Clinton’s ‘Atomic Dog’ should also be mentioned).  Stezo's MC skills hold up with other rappers from this period- like EPMD, there are some occasional mispronunciations, and he isn’t as intricate as golden-age gods like Rakim or Big Daddy Kane.  Still, his workman-like flow keeps the beat, mostly avoids profanity, and steers clear of thug excesses that rap would become known for.  This has been out of print for years, but Traffic does a good job on the re-release.  Though they could have put some bonus material on here (perhaps some 12” sides), this is a can’t miss for people who appreciate rap from a simpler time.

Apart from the Kanye joint about 15 minutes in, and some good UK hip-hop, there's a half-hour or so old-skool mix at about 1 hour 15, with PE, Rakim and plenty more. I really enjoyed it, and thought that True Father, big Sam, Reggie and others would too!

Scorpio by Dennis Coffey and the Detroit Guitar Band.

and Taurus.

I cannot even begin to express my shock when I learned that Dennis Coffey (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1ku-OJsc3k) was a white guy. :o

I-I-I...was in a catatonic shock. All this time listening to those SUSSEX 45 LPs as a kid thinking, "Damn, this sh*t is intense...!"
...And alot of his material was eventually picked up by Hip Hop culture.  F'n incredible

From this site (http://www.denniscoffeysite.com/albumcovers.html) I learned he was also down with the Funk Brothers from the early days of MOTOWN.

A performance in New Orleans.

When it came to Jazz & Funk and even Blues, I  was aware of a few cats out there doing the do was white like the Average White Band, K.C. & the Sunshine Band, Led Zepplin, Teena Marie, and the guy who did the 'theme to TAXI', and the guy who did the 'theme to S.W.A.T. ...but Dennis Coffey?!  Never even crossed my mind!

In the early days of break dancing, Dennis Coffey's record (next to 'Apache') was the joint you put on the turntables to see some dancing skills.

I was at the Rise Festival in London on Sunday, and apart from established artists I knew were good, like Jamelia and Kelis, there were 2 performances that impressed me. One was a female UK MC called Tor, who put some wannabe UK Wu-Tang guys to shame with her set, and The Noisettes, an indie band with an amazing sister on guitar and lead vocals. If you can find any of either of their stuff, check it.

Was in NYC and saw a real old school group perform for Harlem Week yesterday...Hairold Melvin & The Blue Notes who performed without Teddy Pendergrass (but had a very similar sounding replacement)...."If U Don't Know Me By Now" and "Hope That We Can Be Together Soon" are incomparable.  Then hit Central Park for a real old school hip hop show from a group who predate The Sugar Hill Gang & started experimenting with funk, blues & hard rock way before anyone commercialized it- they even have a movie coming out soon about the culture their efforts created on the East Coast back then. 

Just bought the new Howard Hewett...solid r & b and better production....."If Only" is his new one and the standouts are "How Do I Know I Love You", the moody "Don't U Wonder Too", "If Only", the gospel tinged "Our Father" and songs like "Can U Feel Me" and "Make Me Say..." are just classic Hewett swagger songs....much better than the last and one of the best of his solo career on a par with his 1994 release "It's Time"....which was pitch perfect showcasing him in top form.

Also of note another Black owned business is being forced out of Harlem on 125th....The Record Shack which has been in the community for 35 years is facing eviction.  Harlem is now overflowing with many corporate entities like Starbucks, Verizon Wireless, etc.

Before that I was checking some:

Funky Four Plus One  - Rapping And Rocking The House

Whitehead Brothers - Serious
Haven't listened to this CD in sooooo long... Forget I was a G, Your Love is a 187, Sex on the Beach. It's probably '94 since I last heard these. :D

Kanye West - Late Registration
Was in the mood for some Crack Music.

It's a double CD US and Japan re-release only at the moment (I think), so I had to import it. Disc 1 is the same as the '88 release, and disc 2 includes:

1. Groove Me [Extended Version]
2. Teddy's Jam [Extended Version]
3. Don't Clap...Just Dance [12" Mix]
4. I Like [Extended Version]
5. 'Round and 'Round (Merry Go 'Round of Love) [12" Extended Version]
6. Spend the Night [Extended Version]

Most were only previously available on vinyl, or very rare promos, or compilations.

I hope they re-release some more of this stuff. I know there was a "Do The Right Thing Soundtrack" re-release that was remastered, and had bonus mixes of P.E.'s "Fight the Power" and Guy's "My Fantasy", a couple of years back.

Still listening to Common.  Haven't made my way through the rest of UGK, I'm stuck on the single (track 2), which I keep playing over and over.  I love when hip hop takes a great song (I Choose You) and makes it even better.  And needless to say, it's soooo nice to have OutKast back.

Teddy Riley was one of the best producers out in the late 80s/early 90s...his stuff had a distinct flavor & flow -designer funk.  Grew up listening to this in highschool...

Kanye West is one of a few hip hop/rap acts in the last few years who keeps the genre moving artistically - sometimes with controversy.  Have both of his recent releases...

after watching Law & Order SVU the other day, it got me thinking.. where's Ice T's greatest hits cd..

... circa 1999, there was a short-lived "greatest hits" compilation released on the now-defunct Atomic Pop label.. But there needs to be a proper CD hits/album cuts retrospective.
The bulk of Ice-T's recording catalog was for Sire/Warner Bros., so Rhino Records would likely be in charge of assembling an official hits cd.
here's what I'd put on there--
Coldest Rap
Six N’ the Morning
I’m Your Pusher
High Rollers
Colors
Lethal Weapon
You Played Yourself
New Jack Hustler
Lifestyles of the Rich & Infamous
OG: Original Gangster
Cop Killer (Body Count)
We’re All in the Same Gang (West Coast All Stars)

Jaheim's new one "The Makings of a Man" steps this talented brotha further into the right direction with smoother vocals.  He continues on the path of r&b/soul & he may one day create a great masterpiece album (his live shows will strengthen his skills) and working with people like Babyface & R Kelly puts him on better footing with more sophisticated lyrics, stronger harmonies and production to back him up than before.  Songs like "Hush", "Never", "Lonely", "Just Don't Have a Clue" and "I've Changed" tilt this one toward being a winning r&b project.

Anthony Hamilton is one of the most underrated singers (lacks a strong marketing/pr/advertising campaign to back him up on sales) out there- his delivery, style and clarity is beyond compare.  True soul with very good lyrics...proof that r&b has not died.

"Hey There Delilah" by the "Plain White T's". It has a melody that is hard to follow as it is so fresh yet at the same time so simple.

"A 1,000 miles seems pretty far, but they got trains and planes and cars, I'd walk to you if no other way...Oh it's what you do to me...oh it's what you do to me, what you do to me, what you do to me"

I was slightly surprised when the barmaid at my inner-city spot called it 'her song' when I played it on the dial-up jukebox.

Anything for a tip.

Born Ellas Otha Bates McDaniels on December 30, 1928, at McComb, Mississippi, Bo Diddley died on or about Monday, June 2nd 2008.

Bo Diddley was one of the founding innovators of early 20th century blues that gave rise to rythm & blues, folk, jazz, rock & roll, rock, disco, hip hop...you name the genre of contemporary music and it all can be traced back to him.
I've heard his stuff before but the most memorable use of one of his most famous 'diddies' was in the Ralph Bakshi's animated version of 'Fritz the Cat'.

Lizz Wright was on the cover of Jazz Wise with the release of her new one "The Orchard" - and her debut several years back is filled with nuances of jazz, gospel, r&b and soul (definitely a beautiful sound to the ears...spellbinding).

"Royal Flush" w/ Raekwon...... this is one of the summer anthems of 2008. 

I know Lil Wayne and Jigga has a cut together BUT once you read the lyrics of RF......man this the song I will be rockin all summer

Big Boi]
I am the wrong nigga to cross and the first nigga to jam
But the AK-cuatro siete over microphone in hand
Goddamn. Generation uno, Dungeon Fam
The lab is filled with potions of emotions out the ass
I laugh when you think that you have seen the last
But it's only the beginning my nigga don't be so fast
(he telling folks Outkast aint going nowhere)


(Andre 3K)
Yeah, it's easier to run the street than walk in the sand
Hey, I'm talking young man. As if chalk in my hand
I will take y'all little ass to school
It's cool when the kids call me Sunny, the hood calls me Stacks
The B's call me honey, Hollywood calls me back
Crack and I have a lot in common
We both come up in the 80's and we keep that bass pumping
That's a nega-tive comparison, embarrassing
Unfortunate that if you come up fortunate the streets consider you lame
Ha, I thought the name of the game was to have a better life. I guess it ain't. What a shame

(whoa, I remember when Coca-Cola shirts were the hot thing to get—nowadays, the logo would probably get fuzzed out before broadcast)

There really needs to be some more comprehensive DVD compilations of hip-hop & R&B videos, especially stuff from the 80s and 90s.  It’s great that this stuff can be posted to YouTube and similar sites, but of course often the footage is from 2nd or 3rd generation copies, people have posted their own personal logos over the footage, etc.

Public Enemy was poised to put out a DVD set of the Def Jam era vids but according to Chuck, Universal/Geffen lawyers stonewalled claiming that, for example, in videos like “Fight the Power”, waivers were not signed by the people in the audience/crowd (!!!) thus leaving a window for a lawsuit; on top of that, another “issue” mentioned was any outstanding sample clearances for a song.. (boo, hisss…)

Here’s a few compilations that I know of or have, that have most or all of the artist’s videos:
Ice Cube- greatest hits
Run DMC- together forever
Too Short- dangerous music
Cypress Hill- hits from the bong
Whitney Houston- the greatest hits
Michael Jackson- History
Beastie Boys- criterion collection
Eazy E/NWA- Eternal E

people I want but haven't seen:
Heavy D; BDP & KRS-One; Big Daddy Kane; Cold Chillin Artists (Biz markie, marley marl, kool g rap, shante', master ace); Naughty by Nature; LL Cool J; Boyz II Men; New Edition/BBD/Bobby Brown/Johnny Gill/Ralph Tresvant; Luther Vandross; Guy; Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince/will smith; EPMD;

(http://i239.photobucket.com/albums/ff179/dabigdikdangla/LITTLEBROTHERGETBACK.jpg)

(This is a cut and paste of someone else's review that I happen to agree with.)

"Getback" can have a number of meanings. It could mean revenge, like in James Brown's "The Big Payback," a command for others to retreat, or simply a return to the familiar. North Carolina duo Little Brother, reportedly dismissed for being "too intelligent," touch on all three with their third full-length album, Getback. They exact intellectual revenge on detractors, call out wackness and "get back" to a place they never ventured far from to begin with--rhymes about true life.

Getting Back to Basics
Big Pooh and Phonte blaze through hot topics like the N-word, the lack of insightful content in mainstream hip-hop, and the hypocrisy of the genre's critics who blame it for everything from crime to misogyny. While these topics are not new, Pooh and Tay nimbly addresses them without rehashing what listeners already know. Throughout Getback, the Southern MCs take their peers to task by appealing for better quality music while they implore their elders to take another listen. The opening track, "Sirens," packs some lyrical punches, "Like before Kool Herc everything was alright/like y'all wasn't calling black women h*es before 'Rapper's Delight.'"

Getting Back to Reality

MC Phonte (of Little Brother)Getback's first single, "Good Clothes," succeeds as an everyman tune that describes the role of attire as a defining factor in life events and choices. The track is not just about gettin' fly, it is a necessary departure from the materialistic, pro-designer, shameless clothing-line plugs that have clouded hip-hop of the past decade. They've brought it down to earth, but they're definitely not haters, showing respect to fellow MCs who demonstrate comparable lyrical prowess. Lil' Wayne, for example, contributes a tight verse to "Breaking My Heart" as the only well-known guest on Getback.

Getting Back Home
Little Brother shakes off the conscious rapper label with frank talks about relationships, spittin' game to women (and what happens when it backfires), along with the lack of love from even fellow N.C. natives who are still sleeping on them. One of the most refreshing aspects of this album is the absence of the contrived 'girl song'. Little Brother touches male-female issues head-on with "Step it Up," reminding fellas that it's worthwhile to try a little harder to impress women. "That Ain't Love" talks about what love shouldn't be, in romantic love and in love for music. The success of a song like this comes in the ability to refrain from pretending to have all the answers; it is simply an exchange of experiences. The closing track, "When Everything is New" is an appropriate ending, highlighting the subtle funk extended instrumental in the production.

The Bottom Line on Getback
Musically, Little Brother's sound is a highly-listenable combination of jazzy horns, violins, rolling drums and Raphael Saddiq-like vocals from guest singers. Lyrically, they're a throwback to everyday scenarios, a la A Tribe Called Quest, though managing to not sound like something you've already heard. Getback is also an album in the same vein of some of this year's better releases, like Common's Finding Forever, and Kanye West's Graduation, by offering a compact collection of tracks--one song shy of a dozen--and no superfluous extras. The brief, humorous and pointed skits are woven through the music. As Little Brother is still striving to get more recognition for their skills, this is clearly the best way to get their point across.

Go out and get Getback...better late than never.

Bunch of new music for me. Only just got Kanye's Graduation, and it's almost entirely great, but I don't think I can say anything about it that wasn't said during the 50 vs Kanye media-storm.

Sticking with Kanye, though, I also picked up Estelle's Shine, which was similarly brilliant, with some incredible feel-good songs (and I'm glad to see that Love me (Pretty Please) is the latest single, as that stood out for me). I'm definitely relieved that, although she mainly sings, she still kicks some verses rapping in her London accent.

Also catching up on UK hip-hop, although Roots Manuva's just released his new Slime and Reason album, I only just picked up 2005's Awfully Deep. I'd heard good things about it, and this is the most cohesive album I've heard from him, almost all good tracks, rather than some of the meandering ones that turned up on his earlier albums. Great reggae vibe to some of them, and Chin High is one that I can't get out of my head.

I also picked up Del Tha Funkee Homosapien's I Wish my Brither George was here, but that's 17 years old now (17! :o), so anyone who wanted it probably already had it. I will say, it makes you feel your age when there's a VAnilla Ice diss track on an album ;D

Finally, I listened to my friend's copy of Angles by Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip, a dance DJ and UK hip-hop poet. It is so much better than that makes it sound, you should really look for it. Plenty of UK-specific references in it, but also loadds on the nature and love of hip hop, and deeper philosophical stuff. You tube the video of their first song, Thou Shalt Always Kill, you'll love it.

Vastly.

I'm on B.O.B. now, he's a fairly new rapper on TI's label Grand Hustle. It's funny how y'all mentioned Andre and Del because he reminds me of both. His rhymes are clever and his music is happy and bubbly, he definatly stands out among his ATL peers. I downloaded two of mixtapes "Who The F*ck Is B.O.B." and "Cloud 9" and are enjoying them both. Check out his Myspace or the new XXL for more info.

I'm sure everybody who cares knows how great TI's "Paper Trail" is by now, it stayed in my ride's cd player for damn near a month str8. It's his best since "Urban Legend" and may be even better. He might need to snitch more often cause he's on fire.

I resisted T-Pain as long as I could, he finally got me wit "Chopped And Screwed". It's my smoke a blunt and drink a beer song at least til after Christmas. I hope y'all have a good one...later.

Ice Cube's Raw Footage, surprisingly very soulful (Musiq guests and Mayfield samples) and rough on other traks, of course still dropping knowledge as well.

PEACE
Got this from iTunes last night

IMO, Cube is still one of the best doing it today

Despite the numerous bad movies as of late, Cube has it in Spades in the Rap game

Anthony Hamilton smokes his way thru his new release "The Point of It All"....in places he hits gospel highs, r&b gold, soul stirrings and even touches on a hip hop collaboration.  Hamilton places himself in a unique vein of music in today's world...formerly held by the likes of Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett and Bill Withers.  Some of the standouts are "Soul's On Fire", "The News", "Prayin For You/Superman", "Fine Again" and the bonus track "She's Gone".   8)

I just discovered this cat named Chalie Boy. He's a rapper/singer from the third coast. His gravelly singing is kinda shakey, you wonder if he's gonna make the note (it's like watching Mariah Carey sing live). Sometimes he don't, but it's sung with such fat boy bravado you like it anyway. It reminds me of a song "Cold Sweat" by Faze. They could barely sing at all but it's still a tight song.

Cold Sweat - Faze http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6XnN_h3Y9k

Keep in mind I'm from the South and drive a 20 year old Cadillac.

Chalie Boy - Bumpa Grill http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTWZFwcIyiY
Chalie Boy - I Look Good http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANpephxhcEo

Yeah it's simplistic and kind of ridiculous cause somebody done told dat brova wrong. But it's cheerful and a nice affirmation to play in the ride on the way to work.

Went to a brilliant gig Saturday night (I won tickets! I hardly ever win anything!), and all of the acts were worth checking out.

First up was Homecut (http://www.myspace.com/homecut), a really poetic UK rapper whose video featuring Corrine Bailey Rae is up on his Myspace page.

Next was Bonobo (http://www.myspace.com/sibonobo), another UK producer who's done some soulful soul/hip hop tunes for a while now, but who was also doing a brilliant straight-up DJ set on the night.

A real surprise was French DJ / Producer Wax Tailor (http://Wax Tailor), who performed with a flautist, cellist, and several rappers. Check out his website where you can hear everything he's ever released (don't worry, all of it's in English, and it's truly dope!)

Finally for me was DJ Vadim (http://www.djvadim.com/), a guy I used to go and see when I was 15 and doing my underage-drinking thing. He also had lots of live stuff going on, including support from Chi-Town MC Pugslee Atomz.

Check out all these guys if you like your hip-hop, or just good music.

Also, an entire album I'm absolutely loving, and which won't cost you anything, is Remixes from The Edge, by Ghost. (http://ghost.bandcamp.com/album/remixes-from-the-edge)

My Theme Song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5L_RwclEc0&feature=fvst


Today, nobody cares
But tomorrow they will, they will
Today, nobody cares
But, oh, tomorrow they will, they will

They said my future was dark
You see me now?
Just look around
Im beamin

(We are) They used to talk
When I wasnt around (Lasers)
You see me now (Were not)
(Losers) Im beamin

I get my energy from my inner G
I be in outer space, but I got inner peace
So tell my enemies that they cant injure me
I know that irritates, you have my sympathies
Well, you should protest, yeah, you should picket me
Im on a losing strike, Im on a winning streak
Im out in left field, Im speaking mentally
But thats a better places than where the benches be
Im feelin really good, me and different beat
Me and my different drummer, he play the timpanis
See, thats what got me here, you hearin me
Me on my black man in the future sh*t, call me Billy Dee
See, Im just forward-looking, thats how I really see
See, while you Valentimes, Im thinking Christmas trees
And thats how this would be, even at Mickey Ds
Semicolon, close parentheses

They said my future was dark
You see me now?
Just look around
Im beamin

They used to talk
When I wasnt around
You see me now
Im beamin

Do you remember me, the guy from verse one?
Failures my last name, Nevers my first one
You see I hood a lot, and yeah I nerd some
Hoods where the heart is, nerds where the words from
Dont represent either, because I merged them
S kids who wanna leave, and I encourage them
Go out and see the world, never return from
Yeah, you dont come back, unless you learn some
And baby girl, what does it matter where your purse from?
Your hurr done, your nails did, your ass fat, but youre dumb
Mix Melyssa Ford with Maya Angelou
Become a top model and Sojourner too
I try to follow this, what Muhammad do
Its such a old soul inside the sonic youth
Swear Im Ferrarid up, and Im conscious, too
I dont prophesize: I promise you

They said my future was dark
You see me now?
Just look around
Im beamin

They used to talk
When I wasnt around (Lasers)
You see me now (Ha)
Im beamin

Yeah, its me again, the guy from verse two
Well, this the last one, its almost curfew
Its almost night out, so turn your lights on
Where all my 760s, witcha brights on?
Yeah, they are the ones to keep your eyes on
Like how we used to do, to keep the house warm
Now those the type of eyes, I not cry from
You see the tears of fire run out my cryin songs
Now the worlds shoulders is what we cryin on
The worlds fast lane is what Im drivin on
What am I driving at? Im tryna drive it home
Im in the drivers seat, but you can ride along
Cause never cyclops, its never I alone
Im tellin your story wherever I perform
Now if they lookin for me, tell em Ive gone
Out in the bright lights, right where I belong

They said my future was dark
You see me now?
Just look around
Im beamin

They used to talk
When I wasnt around
You see me now
Im beamin

Down South Slangin 44 DJ Chuck T has ALL the springtime hits on it
The Best of Devin the Dude
The Best of J Cole
this Ultimate Slow Jam cd I made that's so nasty just listening to it might make a girl pregnant
a cd of all my favorite Prince songs

I just got a new Lac, this mixtape is mandatory...it flows so smooth.

(http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc148/trouble-man10/VARIOUS_Diamonds_Wood-_Cadillac_Cla.jpg)

I know y'all don't like the South but...Waka Flocka Flame's joint is tight as hell. It's old now, but I'm tellin y'all it goes hard. It reminds me of the first Bone Thugs tape...it sounds different from everything else out and you can ride to the whole thing without skipping tracks.

The newer Lac has a tape player too so I had to break out De La's Baloone Mindstate, AMG's B!tch Better Have My Money, Kay Dee, Trouble Funk's Saturday Night Live, Digable Planets, Arrested Development, Brand Nubian, DJ Quick, the D.O.C. and Robin Harris' comedy tape for when I need a laugh. I'll customize the system when I get some more dough.

Yeah that's MJW. I'm not hatin on her, but that song and her nasal voice are irritating. Less is more and she's a lil overexposed right now.

I'm on Chris Brown and Tyga's "Fan of a Fan" cd. "Dueces" is tight, but "Like A Virgin Again" is the main draw. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR4ceDkOyhw

The Yahoo commercial where the white boy is living like a rap star forced me to download "Flashing Lights". Consequently I made two cd's of Kanye's Greatest Hits. It's got a lot of stuff on it that escaped me when it first came out, like "Big Brother", and the "Girls, Girls, Girls" remix with his verses as well as Jay's, and all the stuff he produced for other people like Slum Village's "Tainted" and "Selfish" and Rhymefest's "More". Plus it has classics like "Classic" and "Drive Slow" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWoUCDTfWqA. Anybody that thinks Hip-Hop is dead needs to listen to Kanye and Nas' "We Major" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOGsQHl6Fa8.

My favorite new cd is Rick Ross' "Teflon Don" and my current theme song is the "Super High Remix". Curren$y murdered it..."trees get twisted up like fingers in gang signs", it's for smokers only. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCqUyCiOmvU.
Title: Re: What Are You Listening To?
Post by: Reginald Hudlin on August 02, 2010, 07:27:47 pm
WE MAJOR is an all time classic to me.  I can't wear it out no matter how much I play it.

Phillip Glass

A compilation of 60s soft rock tunes for summertime, like GROOVIN', CRYSTAL BLUE PERSUASION, Todd Rundgruen's HELLO IT'S ME (which I think is superior to both the Nazz version and the Isley's version). 

Also 80s jams like RUDI, A MESSAGE TO YOU, BREAKING US IN TWO, GOODY TWO SHOES and CLOSE TO ME.

I've been digging this song on my playlist for a while now...

The Rangers - Aww Yeah NEW 2012 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZWBqWFu69M#)

I was disappointed to see this ^ and discover they're basically children and that I may as well have been listening to Mindless Behavior. Still the production is on point though.

My favorite song from G.O.O.D. Music's "Cruel Summer"...

G.O.O.D. Music - The One (ft. Kanye West, Big Sean & 2 Chainz) (Cruel Summer) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Nt8G18dedY#ws)

Possibly the hottest ish for the fall Kendrick Lamar's highly anticipated album "Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City" will be released October 22. This is an appetizer ft. Jeezy...

Kendrick Lamar- Westside, Right On Time Ft Young Jeezy (Download) (HQ) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcgvvJWXFb4#)

These are the first two singles...

Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Explicit) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLCqSMDEQsA#ws)

This is the R&B I'm on now...

Kid Ink - Time Of Your Life (Remix) ft. Tyga & Chris Brown (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrlchwPI3v0#ws)

And this is some white dude's remix of Future's "At The Same Damn Time" that I like more than his...

Timeflies Tuesday - Same Damn Time (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCrcHQdCmbc#ws)

There's something about those bongos and when I listen to the original it's so inane I can feel my brain cells dying.

You can view a little about the Historical marker placed by Gate's grave in Orange, Texas by searching fox news, orange Texas, gatemouth brown memorial.  I'm not very tech savy or I would post a link for you!  Anyway, the guy on the news playing the dobro by the memorial is Billy Andrews.  Gate's Godson.  It's a local news cast in Orange Texas back in July 2012.  Saturday, July 21, I think it aired Sunday the 22nd!  This is an exciting project and one that there is talk about a Grammy nomination for!

Yeah, that Foster Sylvers song is dope. That sample has been used a lot, most notably by the D.O.C. on "It's Funky Enough" . Speaking of samples, I played this 4 times in row on my way home just now, head nodded every time. The beat is a monster, almost anybody could flow on it. It reminds of when I first fell in love with Hip-Hop.

Stanley Clarke's "Heaven Sent" is a very underrated piece of work.

It's interesting that Mr. Clarke decided to go to the next level and create soundtracks for movies now.

Rick Ross aka The Boss vs. the Original Boss
Both artists were exposed for perpetrating fake gangster-rap personas.

<<Re: Sophia Stewart, The Real Creator of The Matrix, Wins Billion Dollar Copyright >>

Any (first year) fictional writer should understand Archetypes...
Archetypes refers to a generic version of a situation, behavior, person or personality.
Primordial images, characters, ideas, or pattern of circumstances that recurs throughout literature and thought consistently enough to be considered universal.
Examples of archetypal symbols include the side-kick, the coward turned hero, the prostitute with a golden heart, the playboy, the wise elder,
the damsel in distress, the valiant vixen, the comic relief, man vs. machine, the rebel...

Kim Carnes - More Love (Slayd5000) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNUP0FZ26Z4#ws)

Kim Carnes - "More Love"

EDIT: Here's an interesting story about this song, originally written & recorded by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles...
"More Love" was included on the group's 1967 album 'Make It Happen,' later reissued in 1970 as 'The Tears of a Clown.' The song peaked at #23 on the Billboard "Hot 100" in the U.S., and was a Top 10 Billboard "R&B Singles" hit, peaking at #5. This song's origins are born from real-life heartbreak and personal tragedy. Robinson, wrote the song for his wife, Miracles member Claudette Rogers-Robinson, and he considers it one of his most personal compositions. Claudette had been a member of the Miracles since 1957, but retired from touring in 1964 after her eighth miscarriage. But while she stopped touring with The Miracles, she continued to record with them in the studio. On one occasion, the Robinsons had twins who were stillborn, and according to Robinson, "After she [Claudette] had [this] ...miscarriage, she would always tell me she was sorry she had let me down. I would explain that she had not let me down because she was there, she was alive; I wanted the babies, but I didn't know them. I wrote 'More Love' to let her know how I felt about her." Smokey and Claudette would eventually have two healthy babies, both named after aspects of the Motown corporation: A boy, Berry (named after Motown founder Berry Gordy, Jr.) and a girl, Tamla, named after the Tamla record label, a subsidiary of Motown Records.

Its all good FLEX. Grease is the word! Word!
Lillo Thomas? Never heard of the guy but I dig that 80s sound.
Common is a poetic MC. (Real People-- BE album)
Snarky Puppy? Never heard of them either. Great song. The tune sounds familiar?
Mad Cobra? I love the intro. So good.

Speaking of intros, heres one of my favorites...

The intro song to the 1995 animated cult classic film Ghost In The Shell  (many believe the movie "The Matrix" was spawned from th-- oh never mind!)
Truly a beautiful chant!

K. Michelle - The Right One (Official Music Video) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoz5CKsp38A#)
(note: K. Michelle is J.R. Smith's ex. He broke up w/her via Twitter, which is the most bitch made way you can break up with anybody. It didn't get that bad or that serious w/my ex, but I AM playing this on repeat right now.)

K. MICHELLE - SOMETIMES 2013 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqI9COH-AYo#ws)

(First time I heard this song, I started crying so hard that I had to pull over to the side of the road. I was covered in hives & could barely breathe, but I felt strangely better when I was able to pull myself together. I think I might've touched on the relationship w/my ex from last year - it's the only time I ever fell really hard for somebody - but I'll never talk about it again.)

Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown will be honored at the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival on Saturday September 28th! Billy Andrews, his Godson will be in the playing line up and also doing a private gig the night before.  I posted here before about the tribute album Billy was working on and at the last minute we got the call to come down and play in honor of Gate! YEAH!
Anyone that lives in the area, or any Gatemouth Brown fans should come on by! Just ask for Debbie or Billy Andrews.

October 30th Billy Andrews will be playing a private party for Widespred Panic in New Orleans at the House of Blues - as they are big fans of Gate and wanted to jam to his music - the balls rollin' and Gates gonna "Walk the Board' again. Props - its about time!

Post by: TripleX on September 22, 2013, 02:18:00 pm
For me this week it's all about Lil Wayne's "Dedication 5" and Stalley's "Honest Cowboy". Yeah, yeah, I know a lot of people hate Wayne and say he fell off or whatever, but Dedication 5 puts him back on the map. It's hilarious, but as a fan I gotta say he should have left Kanye's "New Slaves" beat the hell alone. He dumbs it down til it's almost unrecognizable, but you do  recognize what a great beat  it is, Kanye didn't live up to it either. Some would say Kendrick Lamar's "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" beat is beyond Wayne too, but I liked his version. It has none of the original's moody atmosphere, but it's replaced by a vulgarity and sense of fun KL's lacks.

Lil Wayne - Don't Kill (Dedication 5) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2l7b1WiD-BE#)

Lil Wayne - New Slaves (Dedication 5) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAQQCgZ3uNw#)

This song was annoying af to me and then I started really liking it and even got used to the fake P-Funk vibe at the end.

Lil Wayne Ft. Chance The Rapper - You Song (Dedication 5) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKOWz0rfe7Y#)

Much like Joey Bada$$' "Summer Knights" mixtape, Stalley's is full of smooth grooves for the over thirty hip-hop head that's not quite ready for the adult contemporary or easy listening set. The stand out track is "1987" featuring ScHoolboy Q which is named after the year they both were born. My favorite is "Spaceships and Woodgrain" though, it was made to bump in a Cadillac and has a Southern sensibility.

Todd is so amazing that I couldn't even choose one song of his to try to hip people to game. There's his individual work, his work w/Nazz (which is where that song came from - that's actually a remake you posted), and then his work w/Utopia. So I'll pick one of each.

Thought Nubian- Call him by his name The 99 Names (Attributes) of Allah
Not your typical song but amazingly beautiful music. Its more of a chant for relaxation & meditation. Great for bubble baths & adult sleep-overs.

If you can get pass the Dr. York association- Thought Nubian has created a truly transcending sound.
(Dr. York plead guilty to... uhm, well, he went out like a catholic priest.)

Other groups Dr. York has worked with- The Stylistics, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Kool & the Gang, Afrika Bambaataa, The Ojays & many more.

A little back story: first I asked for it for my 30th birthday, but it sold out. Then I asked for it when I finished my AA...then my BA...and then when I got into grad school. Well, my 1st semester of grad school is over - nine hours, 4.0 GPA - and my pre-professional teaching period is over. So I bought it with my last substitute teaching check. Crazy, but now I can stop looking it up on Amazon every week.

Most certainly!

Although, at that time, extra content in music was all about long instrumental introductions and bridges.  Disco Singles were all the rage because dancing in the discos was the key to this strategy.

If a listener wanted extra lyrical content, that's what the full album [read: Long Play] was for.

Barbara Lynn was a soul singer and labelmate to Aretha Franklin during her run at Atlantic Records in the 1960s.  She was known for being able to play the guitar left-handed while crooning on the microphone.  Heard this little ditty on the oldies station while cruising on the highway. Gorgeous guitars by Barbara & David T. Walker on this. Beautiful arrangement & production by Keg Johnson, Willie Z & Lev.

This song is part of a live album recorded by Seals & Crofts called Sudan Village.

I heard this perkier and snappier version (1976) first on New York radio station, Lite FM 25+ years ago before I knew about the original performed with just acoustic guitars in 1971.

The female vocalist really adds a certain dynamic to this song that worked for me.  I hope this song works for you, too.

It seems as if protest is the order of the day in Ferguson, Missouri and after swooning over Senator Chappelle-Nadal's afro, I am reminded of the 1970s music group, the Hues Corporation best known for their classic hit song, "Rock the Boat."

(http://www.gemm.com/graphicsdb/06/_l06_1367366179full.jpg)


I've been listening to the entire album, "Freedom For The Stallion" for the first time a few months ago and was somewhat surprised to find out that every single song is a socially-conscience Black power song.  Even the commercial single, "Rock The Boat" that came off the album is about a protestor falling in love with another.

Yesterday, after listening to Reverend Al Sharpton deliver an inspiring, powerful eulogy at Michael Brown's funeral, he made mention of rooting out the 'bad apples from the whole bunch' analogy when referring to making sweeping changes to the entire law enforcement division in America.  I was immediately reminded of that classic 70s song by The Osmonds, performed at a time when every popular group was imitating The Jackson 5.

This is the same ol' song that supporters of the killer in the police uniform would be singin'.

You Africans, please listen to me as Africans
And you non-Africans, listen to me with open mind

Suffer, suffer, suffer, suffer, suffer
Suffer for world
Na your fault be that
Me I say: na your fault be that

I want you all to please take your minds
Out of this musical contraption
And put your minds into any goddamn church
Any goddamn mosque
Any goddamn Celestical
Including Seraphoom and Cheruboom

Now, we are all there now
Our minds are in those places
Here we go

[Chorus]
Amen!

Suffer, suffer for world
Enjoy for Heaven
Christians go dey yab
"In Spiritum Heavinus"
Muslims go dey call
"Allahu Akbar"

Open you eye everywhere
Archbishop na miliki
Pope na enjoyment
Imam na gbaladun

[Chorus]
Archbishop dey enjoy
Pope self dey enjoy
Imam self dey enjoy
My brother wetin you say?
My brother wetin you say?

My sister wetin you go hear?
My sister wetin you go hear?

Archbishop dey for London
Pope dey for Rome
Imam dey for Mecca
Archbishop dey for London
Pope dey for Rome
Imam dey for Mecca

[Chorus]
Amen!

My people them go dey follow Bishop
Them go follow Pope
Them go follow Imam
Them go go for London
Them go go for Rome
Them go go for Mecca
Them go carry all the money
Them go juba Bishop
Juba Pope
Juba Imam
Then them go start to yab themselves:

[Fela starts chanting in mock-Latin/Arabic]

Every day, for house
Every day, for road
Every day, for bus
Every day, for work

My people, my people
My people, my people

We now have to carry our minds
Out of those goddamn places
Back into this musical contraption
Right opposite you
Now we are back here

This is what happens to we Africans every day
Now wetin I want tell you now
Na secret o
Na confidential matter
Don't tell anybody outside
Na between me and you
Now listen

As I dey say before
E dey happen to all of us every day
We Africans all over the world
Now listen

[Chorus]
Suffering and smiling!

Every day my people dey inside bus
Every day my people dey inside bus
Forty-nine sitting, ninety-nine standing
Them go pack themselves in like sardine
Them dey faint, them dey wake like cock
Them go reach house, water no dey
Them go reach bed, power no dey
Them go reach road, go-slow go come
Them go reach road, police go slap
Them go reach road, army go whip
Them go look pocket, money no dey
Them go reach work, query ready

Every day na the same thing
Every day na the same thing
Every day na the same thing
Every day na the same thing

Suffer, suffer for world...

How many, many a many you go make?
Many, many...
How many, many a many you go make?
Many, many...
How many, many a many you go make?
Many, many...

Please, dont get mystified or spooked-out! the truth dont always come in a pretty package.

Mr. Robert Johnson, considered the King or GodFather of Rock n Roll- Rhythm & Blues. According to the legend he sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads (@ Clarksdale, Mississippi on highway 49 & 61) to play the guitar.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:
Robert Johnsons songs are the bed-rock upon which modern blues & rock n roll were built.

Several artists have paid homage to Johnson (knowingly or unknowingly)

IMO- gospel artists considered secular tunes as the devil's-music. That same sentiment is still being expressed by religious folks to this very day. I believe, the hardships for black-people in the 1930s was the metaphorical-devil Johnson was referring to. Also his own inner demons. His defiance to forgo (god-spell) songs about Jesus & joyful celebration to bare-witness to the sorrow & pain of the conditions of the Jim-Crow-Era (in rural Mississippi) made him a rebel with a cause. To sing the blues. Lord knows they had plenty of blues to sing about. Rock on!

Maaaaaan, I don't care what anybody says, that Robert Johnson ish is pure evil. I was so scared I couldn't listen to the whole thing.

Ha-ha (more like giggling)! Classic! It only has the word "devil" in it? I was more horrified by the line "...and I'm gonna beat my woman, until I get satisfied..."
Jimi sang- "I shot my woman down!"

I get it tho! not a very light-hearted song. kinda depressing. the blues.

also inspired "Spawn" comic-book
purdie shuffle? yyaaaassss! great post Curtis Metcalf & Maxine Shaw.

Call those people as Vaishnavas (devotees of Lord Vishnu) who,
 Feel the pain of others,
 Help those who are in misery,
 But never let ego or conceit enter their mind.

Vaishnavas, respect the entire world,
 Do not censure anyone,
 Keep their words, actions and thoughts pure,
 The mother of such a soul is blessed.

Vaishnavas see all equally, renounce greed and avarice,
 Respect other woman as they respect their own mother,
 Their tongue never utters false words,
 Their hands would never touch the wealth of another.

Vaishnavas do not succumb to worldly attachments,
 They are detached from worldly pleasures,
 They are enticed by the name of God (Shri Ram),
 All holy sites of pilgrimage are embodied within them.

Vaishnavas encompasses the absence of greed and deceit,
 They have renounced all types of lust and anger,
 The author of this poem (Narsi) would be grateful to meet such a soul,
 Whose virtue liberates their entire lineage.

From what I'm hearing and seeing in the news, it seems as if the people of Chicago are going to have to do a lot more to have their corrupt mayor recalled. The entire state of Illinois is going to have to get involved in having Mayor emanuel removed from office for corruption.  This classic from the Chi-Lites comes to mind:

"Alone Again" was a childhood favorite and I listened again
But there on YouTube, off to the side I saw other songs from him
There was one song in particular I discovered, his first hit, in England

Gilbert O'Sullivan- "Nothing Rhymed"
"nothing older than time. nothing sweeter than wine..." Geez-us! What a gem! Great melody & folk-like tune. A must listen or highly recommended. The HEF would love to hear "Karaoke Tanksleyd"! right-on!

HIP HOP DON'T STOP!

the new rookie hip-hop-bunch gets a lot of criticism. some of it is well deserved. still, I'm thrilled with a few stand out artists.

At this point I'm not in the mood to launch a defense of UTCM beyond saying it wasn't a good movie, but it was a very entertaining one. My favorite song on the soundtrack is New Position, followed by AnotherLoverHoleInYourHead and the 12" remix to Mountains is truly phenomenal.

Right now I'm listening to both Future albums as my brain cells die, HNDRX is by far the better of the two. Big Sean's "I Decided" is dope but not as cohesive and epic as his last project. Starlito and Don Trip are giving me old school Southern Hip-Hop reminiscent of Goodie Mob. Migos' Culture album is frankly beneath me but some songs bump. The New Edition movie made me have to put "Holding On" on a cd to play in the benz, I followed it with LTD's Love Ballad, all my favorite DeBarge and Shalamar songs, the live version of Con Funk Shun's Love's Train, then Dru Hill's cover and Make Me Say It Again Girl by the Isley Brothers and then Caravan of Love because it's springtime and that song makes me happy.

My current favorite song is B.E.D. Part II - by Jaquees featuring Quavo and Ty Dolla Sign. I like it so much I downloaded Jacquees' "Mood" mixtape to get Part I and messed around and enjoyed the whole thing. As soon as I thought today's kids don't know how to make trill R&B he surprised me.

Yet Paul McCartney, he gets it, pointing out Stevie Wonder's version of "We Can Work It Out"
Even though I 'like' Stevie's version, McCartney also pointed out Wilson Piclett's "Hey Jude" that I NEVER liked

Jay Z's 4:44 is just what the doctor ordered. It's the most personal album of his career. It's for grown folks, loaded with game, has real bars and so much better than Magna Carta: Holy Grail. The production from No I.D. is solid, it provides a cohesive foundation but few real bangers. My favorites are "The Story of O.J.", "Smile", "Family Feud" and "Bam"...but it's a shame I won't be listening to them in two weeks. As mush as I loved Kendrick Lamar's "Damn." it's been out of rotation for two months, with the exception of "DNA". Albums just don't have the longevity they used to in this era of playlists and streaming.

The whole project is going over the heads of today's kids. They're not buying houses or making smart investments, they're too busy buying molly and percocets. (When did hip-hop go from selling drugs to taking them? I've lived too long.) Jay comes across as smug and preachy, so it's a good thing he got Sprint to buy up blocks of sales that ensured he went platinum in 3 days. That's cheating, but leave it to Jay to make being the old man of hip-hop work to his advantage.

I kind of agree with 50 Cent, 4:44 is too smart to be popular and sounds like golf course music. I'm here for smart rap, but you gotta have the beats to back it up. Anyway 50 is full of it, he wishes he had found a way to evolve in his craft and subject matter like Jay did, while remaining relevant.

Thanks man.


Tyler the Creator has been on my computer a week now and I just listened to it today. It's fire. He's trying to get Grammys with "Scum Fu@% Flower Boy".

It sounds a lot like Chance (experimental in a good way) but with more of an edge. It's soulful with crooning like Frank Ocean but when Tyler spits it's flames.

Wait until the horns come in...

Sunday Gospel/  A beautifully sad song


Black prisoners worked in gangs to break rocks and clear swamps relied on the repeated rhythms and chants of work songs (originating in the forced gang labor of slavery) to set the pace for their collective labor. "Long John" mixed religious and secular concerns, including the notion of successful escape from bondage, a deeply felt desire of both slaves and prisoners.

Black convicts at Darrington State Prison Farm in Sandy Point, Texas (1934). "Lightning Long John"
http://youtu.be/4G5KtQynWvc (http://youtu.be/4G5KtQynWvc)

Lyrics (all lines repeated):
Well it's Long John, He's long gone, He's long gone, He's long gone,

Well if I hadn't listened, What the road they say, I could sit at home, And a rode this day, Well if I wasn't listen, Got to runnin' around,  First thing I know, I was jail house bound, Well I got in jail, With my mouth poked out, Well now I'm in the pen, and I can't get out, It's Long John, He's long gone, It's Long John, Oh, Long John,

Well it's on me, Here's a pair of shoes, Was a funny shoes, That was ever seen, Had a heel in front, Had a heel behind, Well it's gettin' nowhere, That the boy was blind, It's Long John, He's long gone, He's Long John, Oh, Long John,

Well in 2 or 3 minutes, Let me catch my wind, And in 2, 3 minutes, I'm gone again, Oh, Long John, Oh, Long John,

Gonna call this summer, Ain't gonna call no more, If I call next summer, He's on the move, He's long gone, He's long gone, It's Long John, He's long gone,

Well the god say, In the chapter 14, If the man live, Let his sin be free, Well Long John, He's long gone,
 
Like a turkey through the corn, Through the long corn, Well it's Long John, Had a mother like god, Well it's Long John, Well it's tender foot John, With his long clothes on, Just a skippin' through the corn, Oh, Long John, Was long gone, He's long gone, He's long gone, ..

Well did you boys here What the captain said After you boys work Gonna take your footy wear Well if you don't work gonna give you plenty hell Oh, long gone It's Long John Oh, long gone it's Long John

what you boys done well, you read on down,  well you read on down, bout the chapter 16, well the road god said, well the road god said, After you boys old, After you boys old, I'm a drop in on down, With my wheat and zea, All are in my hand, Gonna kill every weed That are in this land, I'm a long gone, I'm a long gone, I'm a long gone Oh, Long John

Well the god say, In the chapter 14, If a man die, He can live again...

I waited way too long to get 2Chainz. "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music" is a summertime banger. My faves on it are "Good Drank", "It's A Vibe", "Blue Cheese" and the surprisingly motivational "Rolls Royce B*tc#". The project is more serious than you may be used to from 2Chainz, but he has some laugh out loud punchlines too like, "I wear Gucci flip flops to your momma's house just to leave them there" and "I'll sing in your girl's face like I'm Drake". There's a lot of wisdom on the album as well, 2Chainz is no dummy, which is evident by the cohesive concept and marketing campaign. Of course the pink trap house cover art is legendary and will go down in history as one of Hip-Hop's most iconic album covers. (Someone should make a thread about all the others on the list.)

Geez-us! I think America is confusing The Star Spangled Banner (by Francis Scott Key) with TAPS (the official military anthem).

Its also called the drum-taps or the bugle /trumpet- taps. The bugle-taps songs are genuinely played at flag ceremonies, funerals & military schools. The TAPS tunes are common in military schools because the young cadets represent the little drummer-boys marching in combat. Pa rum, pum, pum, pum!

Who saw the movie TAPS? Watch it again. Great Film!

Anyway, patriotism cant be confined to a ceremonial act. The wedding is not as important as the marriage.

A true GQ story (as told to me).  :)

A few years ago,  met a brutha from New Jersey who decided to move Down South w/his wife and newborn grandson   'cause of all the deaths from gun violence on his block being ultra cautious about becoming the next victim.

Back in the late 70s , he was moonlighting as a DJ and he was telling me a story about all the local talent that relied on all of the DJs to play their... what the industry used to call 'DJ sample'... record companies used to require their talent to cut a disc and try the song in the clubs and disco to see how dancers and listeners react to it before radio play.

This dude knew GQ before they became famous with the hit, "I Do Love You " JRCarter posted here at HEF. If you observe the album cover you'd see that, back in th' day, it was very fashionable to dress as a gentleman and a lady.

Anyone remember music groups like CHIC and the Whispers album covers?

The guys managing GQ and even some of the group members used to hustle*  in Harlem and the Bronx to finance their studio sessions and pay off DJs who would play their record in the clubs where if you were fortunate enough to see them in action, no one would recognize them in street clothes. It's fascinating that story comes to mind every time this song plays today.

I downloaded the Black Panther soundtrack a week before the film came out and had a chance to make friends with it. Favorite song is "The Ways" by Khaled and Swae Lee, followed by "X", "All the Stars" and "Seasons". I love the project but it doesn't bang hard enough for me, so I added the Black Lightning theme song "Godholly", "B.O.B." by Outkast, the "Ante Up" remix, "Judgement Day" by Method Man and the explicit video version of "Triumph" by the Wu, complete with sound effects.

I'm on Migos' Culture II  for mindless catchiness, Drake's "God's Plan", Dave East's "Paranoia 2" and Pandora's Lil Uzi Vert, Tory Lanez, Travis Scott and Playboi Carti stations for mumble rap when I walk my dog.

I saw my 4 little cousins doing a new dance (ages 6-11). The dance looks like the running man, but with one leg. Not the stanky leg! I guess its called the Rover? I like it when hip hop songs create dances to go along with the music.

Hip Hop dont stop!

Yep, Im goin' there! Any new Static Shock show should include the classic Batman fight sound/words. They could do it new school-style....
example:

dannydontgoin237:
One of my favorite films. So brutally depressing but so, so great.


Scott Miller:
I really loved all the song and dance performances when I first saw this as a young man. But now this scene hits too close home. When I watch it to the end, my thoughts aren't of Fosse, Vereen or Scheider or of show business or performing or vanity, I think of my own mortality. Then I tell myself perhaps I shouldn't watch this again.  But I do sometimes, just to recommit myself to taking better care of my health. It's a warning.


Rachel Tyler:
One of the best final scenes of any film


Brent Stevens:
Beautiful yet tragic.  Thumbs up.  Mad underrated.

Sorry for the late reply...    power outages all over the Eastern side of South Carolina last Friday finally restored approximately 1:35 p.m. E.S.T., this Sunday.

Wasn't Charles Stepney part of the engineering/production team for a lot of early Hip Hop recordings in the 80s?    :-\

Yeah... the interesting trivia about that song is that it's a cover from The Messengers. 

Aside from Marlena Shaw's version, there is another version by the popular 1960's duet, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell.

Charles Stepney was Earth, Wind & Fire's producer until Spirit (which is dedicated to him) when he died from a heart attack. So he didn't make it to the 80s.  :(

You're absolutely correct, Curtis Metcalf.


I had mistakenly thought of publicist Bill Stepheny & Hank Shocklee (who repped Public Enemy back-in-th'-day).

Ah yes, the Bomb Squad. They also did Amerikkka's Most Wanted in addition to the PE masterpieces. Production greatness.

Always thought of Mr. Hudlin as a gentleman, a classy person who has an ego the size of Paramount yet down to Mother Earth as fresh green grass.(https://i.imgur.com/11Qgc6y.gif)

Trying to think of a theme song that best characterizes Hudlin Entertainment and this record keeps playing in my mind.(https://i.imgur.com/11Qgc6y.gif)

Here is the program theme for Hugh Hefners syndicated variety/talk television programs Playboy Penthouse (1959-61) and Playboy After Dark (1969-70).(https://i.imgur.com/11Qgc6y.gif)

(https://i.imgur.com/pqHTlCM.jpg)

This is what HEF could be inside each of our collective minds, except with more diversity, more political intrigue, more humor, and a touch of vintage, bringing you tomorrow's entertainment today.(https://i.imgur.com/11Qgc6y.gif)

When you think of this newly assembled American 116th Congress, think of the famous A-train in New York where the first and last stop in Rockaway Park, Queens is 116th Street.  Y'know... my ol' home, where m' man, the late great Jimmy Battle used to roam.


Why?

'Cause we're gonna be railroading corrupt M/Fers until 2020, yo!

So let's put that Duke Ellington record on, "Take The A-train"  to welcome the 116th Congress and watch the closing doors, please.
