Throwback Joints

So I have decided to throw up some classic underground hip hop joints. I'm gonna try to do at least one a week. If there is something you would like to hear let me know.

here is the first one

Hip Hop's Greatest Eyedea

So It's been a little over a week since hip hop suffered one of it's greatest tragedies. Die-hard fans of indie hip hop had to say goodbye to Michael Larsen. For me the moment signifies the end of an era of my life. To me Eyedea WAS music. He embodied everything an artist is. Driven, energetic, endearing, human and most of all entertaining, Eyedea was that emcee that all emcees wish they could be.

I can't think of any movement in hip hop over the past 30 years more potent than what those good folks over at Rhymesayers Entertainment have done. Eyedea was apart of of something born from passion and work ethic. He was a modern day renaissance man, who was not confined to the limits of what he did not know how to do. When he wanted to do something he simply taught himself how.

For me personally, he was a hero. I remember spending hours watching his battles online, thinking how I wanted to be just like him. Every time someone has told me that I'm nice off the dome, I give a silent thank you to Eyedea. His resume and reputation are undeniable and his voice is unmistakeable. When I heard the news at first I was stunned, perhaps even numb. It isn't really till just now that I really understand and feel how much he meant to me. His voice put words to all of my emotions as teenager and still to this day. I had the opportunity to meet him on a few occasions and he was everything I imagined and more. You would never guess he was as young as he was because he spoke like such an old soul.

I made a little tribute video for him and put it up on youtube. The song is "Glass" from the E&A album.

I just want to say thank you to Eyedea one last time.


Saigon – You Make Me Sick

GLC ft. Manfred Mann– The Light

Graffiti of New York’s Past, Revived and Remade

Anyone who has been lost in the last few weeks around the southern reaches of the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn could be excused for experiencing a powerful Koch administration flashback. On the wall of a brick warehouse there, visible from the parking lot of a furniture store, a huge mural unfurls itself, a loving, seemingly spray-by-spray re-creation of one of the more infamous pieces of graffiti ever to ride the subway: a 1980 work by the artist known as Seen that covered the length of a No. 6 train car with the ominous phrase “Hand of Doom.” Read the full article HERE...

J-Live - The Stand on Demand

I was running through some sites today and came across this interview with J-Live. I had to post it because it brought me back to one of the best times of my life. I remember going to a J-Live show at the Mason jar in Phoenix AZ and J was on stage with Flo Fader and Wordsworth. I was right in the front row watching this electric battle go back and forth between J and Wordsworth. It was crazy. Then they both broke into the next song and the energy came down to the crowd. J Rocked the show past closing time into the early morning.  After the show he came down and kicked it with the crowd and intoduced himself. It was that show that really defined my love for this music. So big ups to the homie J-Live for always keeping it 100.
