1 Year!

An year ago, inspired by Dally Personal and other blogs, I scanned the inside cover of De La Soul’s 3 Feet High & Rising, created an header, and made my first post, Jurassic 5’s Quality Control.
An year, thousands of downloads, and more than 250.000 visitors later, I’m here thanking all bloggers and visitors who have supported and/or inspired me during this time. Some shotouts to Biff and his crew, Crooklyn, Dally, 9Nine, Bankhead, HHB crew, Ekko, Smoking Section, Travis, Worms, Bootis, Ariel, everyone on the links and all the blog community and those who I’ve forgotten.

I know that everyone must have this album already but I don’t care and I’ll post it anyway, just because it’s one of the best albums ever.
Released amid the 1989 boom in gangsta rap, which gravitated towards hardcore, confrontational, violent lyrics, De La Soul's uniquely positive style made them an oddity beginning with the first single, "Me, Myself and I". Their positivity meant many observers labeled them a "hippie" group. Sampling artists as diverse as Johnny Cash, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan's "Peg" and The Turtles, 3 Feet High and Rising is often viewed as the stylistic beginning of 1990s alternative hip hop (and especially jazz rap). Of particular importance is the amazing production by Prince Paul. While sampling was hardly new, 3 Feet High and Rising revolutionized the technique and influenced virtually every producer and artist to come later.
The Village Voice called it "The Sgt. Pepper’s of hip hop", and it’s perhaps the best designation that I can find for this album.

Over the years, many great MC’s rapped over DJ Premier’s beats. Besides Guru, rappers from KRS-One, Rakim, Jay-Z, Nas, Common, Mos Def, Freddie Foxxx, MOP to Notorious B.I.G. (check this site for a complete list) spitted over Primo’s material, but no one, and I mean NO ONE has ever done it like Jeru The Damaja, his unique flow, voice, delivery and lyrics were, well… unique, and some of the best Primo’s beats ever done are here, in these two masterpieces, which are on Illmatic level.
It’s sad that after this two albums, Jeru decided to leave Primo and start producing himself, because his next two albums aren’t that great.
One year ago I posted Jeru’s debut, but since the link’s dead and I was going to post Wrath of the Math, I decided to post The Sun Rises in The East again.

Word... Life

O.C. (1994) Word... Life

Can’t believe I haven’t posted this one yet. Word...Life is the debut album from underground Hip Hop artist O.C. who is a member of the legendary Hip Hop crew D.I.T.C. and is also the 3rd and unofficial member of Organized Konfusion. The album is considered to be a forgotten Hip Hop classic of the 90's. It has that classic vibe from the beginning to the end because of the production by Buckwild, Prestige, Organized Konfusion, DJ Ogee, Lord Finesse and DJ Eclipse. A must-must-must have.

05.Time's Up

They are HERE!

On "Where Are They Now", one of the best tracks on HHID in my opinion (after you get used to the annoying James Brown (RIP) sample, the track's fine), Nas payed tribute to a lot of Old School artists that aren't rapping no more (well, some of them are), and what was the result? Well, less than two months later, three huge remixes came out of nowhere featuring these Old School elite.

Where Are They Now (80s Remix) (Feat. MC Shan, Raheem (Furious Five), Doctor Ice (UTFO), Kangol (UTFO), Kool Moe Dee, Sha Rock (Funky Four +1), Tito (Fearless Four), Grandmaster Caz (Cold Crush Brothers), Lique (Isis of X Clan), Dana Dane, Pebblee Poo & Just Ice )

Where Are They Now (90s Remix) (Feat. Redhead Kingpin, The Original Spinderella, Rob Base, Father MC, Monie Love, Mike D (of the Jungle Brothers), EST (of 3XDope), Positive K, Das EFX, Lords of the Underground, Dres (of Black Sheep)

Where Are They Now (West Coast Remix) (Feat. Breeze, Kam, King Tee, Candman, Threat, Ice T, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Conscious Daughters with scratches from DJ Bobcat)

Original Version & 3 Remixes

I personally think that the West coast one is the best, just love the beat, and the other two remixes are ridiculous too, but the beats are constantly changing.

But.... Where Is Tim Dogg?

What's your favorite, tell me what you think of the remixes.
