Never Forget: A Journey Of Revelations

Cornel West & BMWMB [2007]
Never Forget: A Journey Of Revelations

"Dr. Cornel West, one of America's most prominent black intellectuals, has teamed up with Hidden Beach Recordings to produce one of the most important and socially-conscious music projects to be released in 2007. On the heels of the Don Imus controversy, topical debates on the political and sociological effects regarding the use of the N Word and America's searching for answers to the question "Now What?" all are addressed in the context of this CD. This compelling body of work features Cornel West as a conductor who orchestrates a symphony of hip-hop and r&b recording artists and producers in the delivery of a resounding message that offers music as a positive force to effect change, awareness and solidarity.

Never Forget: A Journey of Revelations is a riveting, thought-compelling approach to raise the consciousness of the mainstream music consumer through a positive lyrical approach. It exemplifies a level of love, unity, solidarity, and loyalty designed to the give the world a force of good in the form of music, especially Black music, in these bleak times. "

Brazilian Gems

With the goal to post something different, here are two great Rap albums from Brazil.

The first one is from a vet in the Brazilian rap scene, and instead of posting one of his many great albums, I decided to post his "Best of" for the people who haven't heard of him. Even if you don't understand Portuguese I still think you're going to enjoy it, and even recognise some samples that were also used on famous US rap classics.

I already posted an album from Marcelo D2 a while back but this one is different, since his style has changed a lot since '98, expect some great beats featuring a fusion of Samba and Hip-Hop (Marcelo's speciality, which has improved a lot through the years) and even a guestspot by two Jurassic 5 members. I hope you like these albums and hopefuly they'll become a soundtrack for this final part of the summer.

Gabriel O Pensador [2002] Tás a ver [Best of]

Top Shelf 8/8/88

VA [2007] Top Shelf 8/8/88

"Introduction: 17 years ago a small recording studio, TOP SHELF, located in the basement of a brownstone in the East Village section of New York, was looted during the Thompkins Square riots of 1988, displacing the recordings of many soon-to-be Hip Hop stars. The studio had been the meeting place for many rappers, neighborhood kids, and producers that would later be responsible for the greatest period of the Hip Hop age, "The Golden Era." A search commenced soon after the recordings were lost, but nothing was ever found. So sought after were the tapes, they soon acheived Holy Grail status amongst Hip Hop circles. Despite years of searching, and dozens of hopeless crusades, the tapes remained lost. No one was quite sure who took them or where they were... until now.

After an extensive investigation and search that lasted two years, the recordings have finally been recovered by Fab 5 Freddy and myself (Benjy Grinberg). They were found dozenss of miles from the site of TOP SHELF in an abandoned strage faciilty in North Jersey. ...We sought after the lost recordings of TOP SHELF because they were rumored to be among the hottest songs from that era, and we thought it was a tragedy that the world never got to hear them. It turns out that these two-inch tapes are truly a treasure chest--a time capsule of the energy and excitement of 1988 Hip Hop."

I'll be honest, I've never really paid attention to Atmosphere, I have most of their releases, but they're always that "I REALLY need to check out later" group.

Return of the DJ Vol. 1

Return of the DJ Vol. 1 [1996]

I watched "Scratch" documentary last week and they mentioned this amazing album which I got from Biff's blog last year, I decided to post it and here's an excelent desciption from the review:

"This collection of hip-hop DJ routines marked the first serious effort to reintroduce the DJ as a true artist to hip-hop fans. In the fog of producer-heavy rap music from the Bad Boy and Death Row camps that dominated listeners' ears in the mid 1990s, Return of the DJ is a refreshing shot of oxygen. [...] You won't even miss the MCs."

1. Death Of Hip Hop - Kool DJ E.Q.
2. Ghetto On The Cut - DJ Ghetto
3. Rob Get's Busy - Rob Swift
4. The Bomb Drops - Jeep Beat Collective
5. Scratch Monopoloy Pt.II - Beat Junkies
6. Invasion Of The Octopus People - Invisible Scratch Pickles
7. U Can Get With The Discs Or U Can Get With Dat - Z-Trip
8. The Chronicles (I Will Always Love H.E.R) - Peanut Butter Wolf
9. Terrorwrist (Beneath The Under) - Mixmaster Mike
10. The Track - Asap Productions
11. Lesson 4: The Radio - Cut Chemist
12. Suckas (Sucka Dj Dis) - DJ Babu

Drop a comment if you want me to post the other volumes.
