Music On My Mind!!!!
Yo! What's it is good people? I can't believe it's mid-March already Basketball is getting intense with the NCAA tournament about to jump off, the NBA is tightening up getting closer to the playoffs ( GO LAKERS!) this is one of the best times of year for me . Today I'm just going to lay down some music that I have been bumping in the ride lately, is it me or does music these days seem disposable. I mean what was a hit 6 months ago you don't even hear it anymore, people are trying to make a hit but could care less about a classic ( I'll get into that in another post ). Anyway this post is dedicated to great music that's all that's it, also go check out my man Scholar over at Souled On Music for even more dope music to add to your music selection. If your still wanting more hit up The Two Team for some dope mixes of classic funk for that ass. Well that's it for me today I'm going to grab me a Splash Of Circus Peanuts and politic for the rest of the day.
Original Sin - Marathon Flow Spitter - This joint right here reminds of being in a cypher and dude just took over a zoned out an flowed until the cops or somebody came an broke it up. This shit right here is fiyah!!
Stevie Wonder - All I Do - This is warm weather music riding with you ol' lady windows down with a glass of something tasty on the rocks, just riding no destination just riding enjoying one another. It's gets no better that this song right here.
Black Star - Brown Skin Lady - Two of my favorite MC's come together to pay homage to the soul sista over a dope sample. I salute you brown skin lady!!!
Erykah Badu - Honey (JBlow RMX) - This is a remix a complete overhaul of what the original sounded like, shout out JBlow for this remix love the drums on this you'll wake the neighbors up bumping this shit.
Coultrain - Screw - Haven't taken this dudes CD out of the deck since I got that joint. In a era of all this radio pop bullshit is good to hear somebody really put their heart and soul into the music. If you can get this CD I'll never stear you wrong.
Wale Oyejide - Riot And Revolt - This is that revolution music right here, these drums on this song just bang out of the speakers you can't help but rock your head to the chant of Riot and Revolt.
Baby Huey - Mighty Mighty - It's a shame this man died so young his music was full of soul and definitley fueled with the funk. Signed to Curtis Mayfield's label this is the only album Baby Huey put out and this song takes you to a small club with big booty waitresses, thunderbird and the smell of soul food coming out the back room. Classic album and song.
Lou Donaldson - It's Your Thing - You should know the sample in the beginnig of the funky version a classic tune if not Punks! You Get Beat Down haa!
Janelle Monae - Violet Stars Happy Hunting! - I really digging this chic not only is she fly as hell, she is very creative her album The Audition is one that you guys need to add to the collection. Did I say she was hot already??
Casual - Later On ( Casual's low down remix ) - Casual is one of my favorite west coast mc's and this joint is just cruising down the strip with the gangsta lean hollering at BATCHES!!!
One Of My Favorite Videos - R.I.P Biggie!!
