Wiped out from the last few weeks of work, but enjoyin listening to some of the above artists. Watched Ice's "Art of Rap" a couple times as well, and thought he did pretty good job, esp. for his first film.

Some new tracks by the ladies that I'm also diggin...

Um wow

La-la-la-last ye-ye-year they hired me
And this-s-s-s we-we-we-we-week the-the-they fired me
And I g-g-g-got all these b-b-b-b-bills to pay
And what the f-f-f-f-fu-f-f-**** am I supposed to say
T-t-t-t-to my wife she's p-p-p-p-pregnant
And if the kid does not go to college his life's irrelevant
And my-my-my melanin-n-n-n makes me a felon
And-need I just wanna take this ****in' c-c-crack and sell it
To the planet;
Panic, I'm a manic depressive mechanic that manages to frantically do damage
To his brain with Xanax, and it's, like the word "anxiety" is branded panoramic
To the back of my eyelids in a variety of fonts
Ariel, Bold, Gothic
Lost it in Time Square and going home is not an option
Is this illusion optic [?]
Perhaps it's just a chemical reaction with my Zoloft and acidophilus
The section of my brain that forms sentences isn't operative
Danger! Danger! Danger, Will Robinson
A bizarre ride, Pharcyde, Fatlip, Collagen
My tolerance is volatile and it feels like I'm losing oxygen!

Just found this thread, wonderful topic with some adults having great convos. I am a 80s/90s hip hop junky. I subscribe to Sirius solely for Backspin (Channel 43 now) and love Ed Lover's show he does at 6pm ET. He interviews alot of the greats from that era and they talk about how some of the greatest songs came about. Did you know Scarface was supposed to have 3 of the 4 verses from Geto Boys 'My Mind is playing Tricks on Me'? We are all better for Bushwick Bills "This year Halloween fell on a weekend.." part, which should have been Scarface's.

Glad someone mentioned Pharcyde and there are a bunch of the JDilla inspired ones (She Said.) I didnt see "Drop" posted, which is probably one of the greatest videos of all time (directed by Spike Jones.) Def look that one up.

Another great video to look up (sorry im at work) would be the video for "What They Do" by the Roots. There are several versions, but you want the one With Subtitles. Its basically a video about rappers being rappers, with girls, cars, 40s, etc. but the subtitles explains they are only doing it to look cool. Actually caused alot of beef back in the day with Biggie because he thought they were mocking his Hypnotize video. I think they even use the same houses in both videos.

Anyways, the 90s are gone and not coming back, but there were some great acts in the later 2000s that I love to hear. Check out a track called "Morris Day" by Felt, which is Slug from Atmosphere (another great, great group) and Murs. Love MF Doom (Madvillian) a ton, the album Danger Doom is basically all the songs from the black-screen/quotes during Adult Swim. Mac Lethal and Brother Ali are two great lyricists in the style of Eminem.

Welcome aboard, MD MC.

You probably know more about The Pharcyde than I do, but I think that's the original Slimkid3 version of "She Said" (with the Fantasy Isle theme and babes on the beach). JD did alot of the production on that album though, so maybe he had a hand in it as well. I like the "Amsterdam" vid of "She Said" as well, remixed by JD, but couldn't find a version with good enough sound quality to post. The "Otha Fish" remix is by L.A. Jay.

"Drop" is another good one...

Yeah he was! Thanks for the heads up on this. Colbert should put the vid on his YouTube channel.

This is good. Kendrick interviews the homies from NWA...


There's a lot of love, respect and straight talk in this joint.

M.A.A.D. City - Kenderick Lamar feat. MC eiht

This is from his previous album. I really like the when the beat changes around the 2:35 mark and Kenderick's flow aftwards.
