Throwback Thursday: DMX

Everyone knows DMX so i don’t think i need to do much explaining….

Y’all ready for the weekend?? Party Up (Up In Here)!

And the classic Anthem…

X Gon’ Give It To Ya

Juvenile ft. Rick Ross- Power

Juvenile? Juvenile? Where have you been? It been a long time since Juvenile has graced the rap world with his style and swag. Formerly a part of the the Hot Boys with Weezy and Birdman and member of Cash Money, Juve left Cash money after he dropped “Slow Motion”, which was awesome by the way (so throwback). Anyways Juvenile’s got his hand back in the game with this new gangster beat ft. The Boss, Rick Ross. Listen and download.

DOSVEC- Feeling Good

Let me throw a sick song in your face real quick. BAM! How did that feel? Like a sub woofer just hit you in the teeth with a right hook? Do your legs ache from dancing too much? Thats what I thought. Listen and download this brand new mash.

Throwback Thursday: Dope Beat

I almost forgot about this song… Boogie Down Productions wrecks it on this track, they mix their hip hop beat with the famous AC/DC sound from Back In Black.  The name says it all.  It’s a dope beat.

Throwback Thursday: Boogie Down Productions

Criminal Minded

OK, first off.  Try and come up with a better name for your hip hop group than this.  Boogie Down Productions.  Yeah that’s what I thought.  It’s not possible is it?

So here is another 1980’s New York City rap group.  They are from the South Bronx.  That’s all the information you need to know in order to figure out that this group contributed to the development of modern day rap.

So for this post, I’m focusing mainly on their first album, Criminal Minded (1987).  This first album consisted of the original group- KRS-One, D-Nice, and DJ Scott La Rock.  Right after the release of this album, DJ Scott La Rock was murdered, and the members of the group constantly changed after that.  Criminal Minded was their most successful album of the five.  This shit is classic 1980’s hip hop.  It’s awesome.

“Poetry”

“9mm Goes Bang”

“South Bronx”

“P is Free” tells the story of an encounter with a crack whore

“The Bridge is Over”

Nipsey Hussle: The Marathon Continues

Finally we have some new Nipsey Hussle. The Marathon was so unbelievably amazing, I can only hope TMC matches it. Unfortunately I gotta wait till my computer gets back from CampusHP till I can download, so remember to take an extra listen for Perkaset.
