As everyone knows, Valentine's Day is upon us once again! Some folks hate V-Day, and others just love it? If you remove all of the lame promotions, commercials, and avoid spending your life savings on your significant other, it's not bad?? It's that one day of the year where you almost have to recognize that special person in your life, whether you want to or not! Hopefully, you want to..LOL? Lots of babies get made on V-Day, and this year I want to do my part! Fellaz, I know you remember those "Get the Drizawls" tape(s) you had back in the day with all the best slow jams on it to set the mood when your girly came thru?? If you didn't, shame on you! Ladies, you may not know what I'm talking about cuzz it's a man thang..LOL? That's the vibe I want to bring back for 2006! This year, I will be putting a couple of slow jam mixes together for download to hopefully help set the mood on Valentine's Day (or any other night)! There are so many songs to choose from that are worthy, it's difficult for me to pick which ones I should use in my mixes? I have my favorites, but I want to know some of yours!

Here is where you folks come in! Over the next week, I want everyone to post/share atleast one song or group that sets the mood for you when it's time for lovin'! When it comes to romance, what song(s) come to mind?? I don't care how old the songs are either! Let's not go earlier than the 1970 though! Nobody wants to set the mood with Chubby Checker, right? If I use one of the songs that you chose, I will paste your name on the my upcoming Valentine's Day post with the mixes!

I'll start things off...."Groove With You" by The Isley Brothers, "Love Comes To Mind" by The Chimes, "The Sweetest Pain" by Loose Ends, and "Adore" by Prince! If you don't know the artist, that's cool because I can probably figure it out with enough details? No Kenny Rogers Country either love, please....

Okay, all you folks that hideout in the background need to speak up on this one, especially you..ERIKO?? I expect to see a post by you ma'am! For all you folks that have never posted a message/comment on this is how it works.

**Directly under this post, click on "POST OPINIONS & THOUGHTS" and when the window appears, type in your name then start writing your message! I need all songs no later than February 7, 2006!

Woah!! When I came across these photos, I was shocked and damn near blinded! YES, that is Da Brat (So So Def and Surreal Life-Season 4 fame), and David Gest (Liza Minnelli's Ex-thought he was gay-husband) holding each other like two high school kids in love! How the hell did this happen? Musically, Da Brats career has taken a left turn onto Milli Vanilli Street, just two blocks down from Young MC Boulevard! I guess a sista's gotta do what she gotta doo-doo?? Even with that said, swapping spit with David Gest is going too far, especially for the hiphop community. I guess thugz need love too??

How will Da Brat recover from this one? Is this gangsta? Back in the early 90's, I actually thought Da Brat was a little boy, pretending to be a little girl, dressed like a little boy! Then in the late 90's she started showing some skin, so I suspected she was trying to get another record deal? Then she guest starred on the VH1 has been reality sitcom, "The Surreal Life" back in 2004! Now, she's probably doing the hippity-dippity with David Gest?? Maybe, David will be producing her next album?? Where is Jermaine Dupri when you need him?

I must say, I don't normally post this type of mess.....but dammit, I had to share this one!! I see a Brat video showing up on this site in very near future??!!!

I was actually starting to wonder if this movie was still coming out? I happen to come across this Dave Chappelle, "Block Party" movie trailer today!

The movie has a bunch of great artists all performing together like, The Roots, Common, Dead Prez, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, and the imfamous Fugees reunion! That's a helluva line-up if you ask me, so I am pretty hyped about this concert film!

Folkz, feast your eyes on the 300C's BIG brother, the Chrysler Imperial! This model is a prototype, but after speaking with the Chrysler representative at the Detroit Auto Show, the Imperial may hit the streets in 2008? Viewing this vehicle upclose, it kind of looks like a ghetto Bentley! Make sure you checkout the doors too! The Imperial is ghetto luxury at itz finest! I know all of the rapperz, playaz, hustlaz & drug dealerz are going to be all over this one when it hits the streets!
Maybe if I start saving now, I can get me one too?? I'm 50 cents away from a quarter, so maybe not!!!

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know about the politically controversial cartoon on Adultswim(Cartoon Network) called, "The Boondocks" created by Aaron McGruder! The comic strip turned tv show was created in 1997. I was very happy when the weekly tv show (cartoon) was premiered in November 2005! In The Boondocks short span on television, Mr. McGruder has already chosen some interesting topics to tackle in the black community like the "The R. Kelly Trial" and "Gay Rappers In Hip-Hop Music!" Even when Mr. McGruder uses offensive shock tactics to get his audience's attention, the real point of each episode is always understood! You may not agree, but you get it! One of my favorite episodes of The Boondocks, was the one he did about Martin Luther King, Jr. awaking from a coma in the new millenium after being shot in 1968! The most interesting part of it to me was Martin Luther King's impressions about how things had changed since 1968! Some of the things said in that episode were probably hurtful to some folks in the black community, but I think there were many good points that needed to be heard!

Outside of the controversy that surrounds the shows choice in topics, the other reason I enjoy The Boondocks is the music! First off, the shows theme music is tight! Asheru of the hiphop group "Unspoken Heard" provides the lyrics for the theme song. Asheru and Aaron McGruder have developed a great friendship over the last few years, and they decided to work together on The Boondocks project. I enjoy listening to the dope instrumentals that are played during the commercials as much as the episodes themselves! If you have been changing the channel during the commercials, you are definitely missing me! Aaron McGruder also uses that time to speak directly to the viewing audience with some funny commentary. Hopefully Asheru or AdultSwim will release these nice tracks on a compilation for purchase in the near future?

I understand that "The Boondocks" is not everyone's taste in a tv show, but if you have ever watched shows like, The Family Guy, South Park, Aeon Flux or Beavis & Butthead...give this show a try! You just might find it interesting?? Check your local listings for airing times on Sunday evenings!

I am paying homage to some of my favorite MCs of all time! I am starting things off with Big Daddy Kane. King Asiatic Nobody's Equal (K.A.N.E.) was the first MC that really made me understand what the whole MC package was all about! BDK had the swagger, confidence, lyrics and attitude that made him one of the greatest MCs of his day. When I first heard the track, "Raw" by BDK in 1988, I couldn't believe how dope it was! That is still one of my favorite hiphop tracks of all time! But, the track that made Kane a legend in my eyes was Marley Marl's "The Symphony!" For those that have no clue about this track, here is a little history you should know. Back in the day, BDK was a major part of a click that called themselves "The Juice Crew." Members of the Juice Crew included, Marley Marl, MC Shan, Masta Ace, Craig G, Roxanne Shante, Kool G. Rap and BDK of course! The Juice Crew was no joke when it came to the lyrics. Kool G. Rap and Craig G were lyrical assassins on the mic by themselves, but when you add the other MCs to the mix it was an all out lyrical massacre! Even with all the talent presented on The Symphony track, BDK's bars stood out the most to me! When my man said, "Battling me is hazardous to your health/So, put a quarter in your ass because you played yourself," I became a loyal fan. The Symphony track has become the standard for hiphop posse tracks, but not many have lived up to this classic!

What I appreciated most about BDK was his ability to be a straight rhyme assassin on one track, and then turn around an become the ladies pimp on the next. Kane is what most of these so called MCs of today aspire to be! In my personal opinion, if there was no BDK, then there wouldn't have been a Jay-Z, Nas, or Biggie! Those are strong words, but I stand behind them! Kane has not been given the respect that he deserves as one of the best that ever did it! For you youngens that have no clue about the history of Big Daddy Kane, get familiar! For all you old heads that forgot about Kane, time to dig in the crates!!!!

Start with these two classics:


"It's Big Daddy in your father!"

Watch the (1993) BDK posse video Show N' Prove featuring: Scoob, Sauce Money, Shyheim, Jay-Z, and Ol' Dirty Bastard! This is definitely a classic record!

"HOT" WHIPZ FOR 2006!!
I got a chance to peep out that 2006 Detroit International Auto Show last week! Every year we have all of the top whipz from around the world hear in Detroit for all to see. The hottest vehicles on display are usually "prototypes" to get the attention of the spectators! Since, most of you were not lucky enough to witness this auto spectacular yourselves, I will perodically post photos of some the hotter whipz I came across during my journey! The first whip shown below is a Ferrari Prototype! The second ride shown below is "S" Type by Lincoln. This one should be arriving for purchase in 2008? The third whip is from the top dog of sports car craftsmanship Alfa Romero! This is a prototype too. The last ride is the 2008 Pontiac Solstice GXP! They did it up with this one for sure! Check out the ridez!

Outside of soul, hiphop and jazz, house music is one of my favorite genres! The hypnotic rhythms and baselines in house music are (dopely) unmatched. I was first introduced to the house sound by an artist named, "Fast Eddie" back in the late 80's. He had a brand of music called, "Hip-House" where he rapped over simple house grooves. Compared with today's music, hip-house probably sucks, but back then Eddie was the man! In the later years I discovered more polished artists like Frankie Knuckles, Deva, Jamie Principle, Inner City, and Joyce Simms, who showed me what the house vibe was all about back in the day. Then I got a hold of a Little Louie Vega (Masters At Work) mix house music CD back in 1992, and I was hooked! Over the last 10 years, the sound of house music has evolved? One of my favorite house music producers is DJ Spinna, who has crossed the music boundaries by creating music in just about every genre? He has produced records in hiphop, jazz, soul, and rock, but his love for house music is definite.

Now there seems to be some confusion on what house music is? With the music industry being obsessed with labeling music and artists, the names used for categorizing house music have changed as well. Categories such as GROOVE, ELECTRONICA and even DANCE have been used in music stores around the world to confuse the consumers even further? Why couldn't they just leave it labeled HOUSE?? I am quite sure the answer has something to do with money! It really bothers me when I go to a local music store, and I can't find the artist that I am looking for because they are located in a bogus section! For those of you that have given up on "real" CD buying for paypal mail ordering, and electronic file downloading, you wouldn't understand?? I still like diggin' in the crates at the music stores literally! My man Gene knows just what I am talking about! We used to hit up Tower Records, Virgin Records and HMV like mad men back in the day.

Of course, I had to put another mix together sharing some of my favorite house cutz! That's available below. I am dedicating this mix to Gene, Honey and Rodd a.k.a House Dawg, because they appreciate this music I still call "HOUSE!" For those who have no clue what house music is, get familiar! Please, don't get this great music confused with Techno!! They are two seperate types of music, period!

The "SoundNexx Deep House Mix" will be available for a limited time!

Get the mix tracklisting here! Leave a comment and let me know whatchu feel.

HVW8 Presents: music is my art

This is an interesting album that I recently came across that has a variety of spoken word, hiphop and soul music on it! Definitely, a challenging piece of work in my opinion. No, you won't find acts like Ginuwine, Chris Brown or Kelly Rowlands on this album, but there are some great artists on here never-the-less! What I like most about this album is the mixture of soul and hiphop that it spotlights. I really enjoy albums that mix things up! Up & coming artists like Ohmega Watts and the Crown City Rockers get to really shine on this album! The artists that caught my attention upon discovering "HVW8 Presents" were Steve Spacek, Plantlife, Rich Medina, DJ Language and Yam Who? I am a big fan of Ubiquity Records anyway, because they always put out music that opens your mind and challenges your ears.

The standout tracks on this album in my opinion are Black Spade's "To Serve With Love," Plantlife featuring Dena Deadly on "Your Love" and Kingbread featuring Steve Spacek doing their rendition of "It's Alright." To most people these artists are really unknowns, but it is never too late to get familiar! If you let the radio tell it, the only soul music available is by Keisha Cole, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx and Ashanti?? I guess to be fair, that is pop-soul music to some...maybe even most?? Knowing that side of soul music is cool, but get to know the many other sides as well! I have this album linked, so checkout some free samples, if you dare??

In the famous words of Hellraiser's Pinhead...."I have such sites to show you!!"

Keep real music alive.......

Alright folks, here is the official tracklist for the "Sample This Lesson 1 Mixx" that I posted last week. I got a few emails from some peepz trying to guess the sample titles? Some folks got a few of the original samples right, but they were most of the easy ones? I guess I could give credit for those who figured out the "Mary Jane Girls" and "Juicy" samples? If you didn't already know those samples, you need to do some homework for real. Sampling got really bad in the 1990's, but now it has become a way of life for the average producer! The electronic-technology phase of producing has latched it claws on production these days! These guys are so creative when disguising the original samples they use, but I am going to expose all that I can!!! You as fans of this music should know where the samples originated! Taking it back to the day when artists had bands that played "real" instruments!!! More to come on that......

Check the Lesson 1 Tracklist:

1) Nas - It Ain't Hard To Tell

I was recently diggin' in my crates of music, and I came across my first Diamond and The Psychotic Neurotics album, "Stunts, Blunts & HipHop," which definitely dope 90's hiphop in my book! When I played the album, it just took me back to the days when hiphop was creative and fun! I really looked forward to new releases back then! Don't get me wrong, we have a few artists that are keeping hiphop creative and fun like, The Justus League, The Weather Men, MF Doom, The Old Maid Billionaires, etc. Even with great MCs making moves in the new millineum, nothing can compare to the 90's vibe! We had A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, The Wu-Tang Clan and Black Moon all dropping classic records at the same time! How can you beat that?? I don't think hiphop will ever be as great as it was in the 90's, so I decided to put a mix together of some of my personal favorites!

This is just the first session of many mixes I will be putting together (reppin' da 90's) just because there are so many songs that I love from that era! I know my peepz (Harmone, DMecca, Eriecoco & Julz) are going to really appreciate this mixx!

Here is the "90's HipHop Mixx Session 1" tracklist:

1)Organized Konfusion - Walk Into The Sun, 2)LOTUG - Flow On, 3)Diamond D - Freestyle (Yo, That's That Shit), 4)Frankie Cutlass - You & You & You Remix 5)Showbiz & A.G. - Next Level 6)D&D Allstars - 1, 2, Pass It (Primo Remix), 7)Lord Finesse - Hip 2 Da Game Remix, 8)Masta I.C. - Mic Geronimo, 9)Strictly Roots feat. Fat Joe & Grand Puba - Beg No Friends Remix, 10)Jamal - Fades Em' All (Pete Rock Remix), 11)Das EFX - Microphone Master (DJ Spinna Remix), 12)Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Lots of Lovin' (PR Remix), 13)Blackmoon - Murder MCs, 14)Main Source - Hanging Out, 15)Guru feat. Bahamadia - Respect The Architect (Buckwild Remix), 16)Jeru The Damaja - You Can't Stop The Prophet (Pete Rock Remix)

TOP 5 MC'S OF 2005!

I got inspired to do this post when I watched Jin's, "Top 5 (Dead or Alive)" video! This has been a BIG question in the hiphop community for years! Which MC's are really the best overall?? In most conversations on this topic, true hiphop heads can never come to a total agreement? Opinions vary for so many reasons it seems when trying to pick the "best" MCs. Sometimes, it depends on what part of the country a person is from. If I am from the South, does that make Bun B, T.I., and Ludacris the best MCs because I can relate to their music better? Does being from California automatically make Snoop Dogg, E-40, and Game the best MCs because they rep your hood? Some folks use the artist's musical track record to rate their lyrical skill overall? Because an artist had a bunch of hit records, does that make them a dope MC? What makes an MC great? Is it clever punchlines, realism, good story telling, or catchy hooks?? Is it freestyle ability? Making guests appearances on several mixtapes make you dope? With all of the ghostwriting that goes on in the game, you don't know who really has talent anyway? Overall, it all comes down to personal opinion!

Personally, I have gotten out of the whole "who's the greatest rapper of all times" mode of thinking. I pick MCs on a yearly basis for my best category. My lists have changed over the years. If you had asked me back in 1990, Ice Cube would have definitely been on my list! In my opinion, all MCs contribute something to this game we call hiphop? Some more than others, no doubt! The real question is, how many years do we idolize hiphop immortals? Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G have made serious contributions to hiphop game, but we will unfortunately never hear another new-relevant verse from these hiphop heroes! With that being said, is it really fair to the new and upcoming MCs to have their hiphop contributions and lyrical skill compared to BIG's and Tupac's? Maybe? Those are considered to be the highest standards of accomplishment by most, when it comes to hiphop? Even Jay-Z who is one of my favorite MCs has to deal with comparisons between him and these legends! I can go on forever about this topic, but here is my top MCs as of 2005! This list is in no specific order.

1-Mos Def: This MC has serious lyrical ability! I like him mostly for his choice of subject matter in his rhymes. He actually something to say, other than just telling stories about cars, jewels and women. One minute he may be verbally abusing the wack MCs and the next he's talking about how politics effect world hunger! Gotta love that diversity! He also doesn't have a problem going against the trends & gimmicks that dominate hiphop today, which has earned him so much respect!

2-Phonte: Even though this MC is part of group called, Little Brother...he has stood out in ways that solo artists don't normally achieve? He always has a smart spin on even the dullest subject matter. His wordplay on the mic is addictive. I look forward to hearing what he has to say next! I think his obvious sense of humor is what makes him one of the best? He honestly doesn't take this "rap ish" to seriously, but don't be mistaken....the brother is serious about his lyrical skill!

3-Jean Grae: She is considered by some to be the underground queen of hiphop. My favorite fowl mouthed female MC for sure! Definitely not a new comer in the game, but she is still sadly unknown to a lot of people? She's a lyrical terror on the mic! Jean's greatest asset in my opinion, is her ability to be slapstick silly at one point, and then flip into her serious-straightlaced, sick, vicious-cut your juggler vein type mindstate! Almost like the "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" syndrome. Actually, her sometimes sick and twisted view on the world is what makes her great!

4-Common: This dude still seems hungry after all of his years in the hiphop game. He is another clever MC, with a lot to say! He is one of the only MCs that I can listen to that does R&B type tracks. He sounds good whether vibing with Bilal, Erykah Badu, Macy Gray, or Mary J. Blige! I can't say that about too many other MCs. Common's past albums are normally themed, which means that you may not have any major singles from the project, but will get a good album in most cases? Some fans were greatly dissappointed by his 2002 release of, "Electric Circus," but I thought it was unique? Not the greatest, but definitely not the worst! In my eyes, even with that little mistep, he is still one of the most consistant MCs!

5-Talib Kweli: It's hard to deny Talib! He has such an undeniable passion for hiphop, and it shows on every project that he's apart of. He's a great lyricist with a consciousness. I feel that he really wants to make the world a better place. Talib is one of the well-rounded MCs out there, working with a diverse array of artists like Paul Wall, Les Nubians, Soulive and DJ Quik to name a few. This brother is also one of the hardest working MCs in the game today, releasing material every six months to keep his name out there. Albums, mixtapes and guest name it, Talib is doing it!

Aight....that's my list! Agree or disagree, leave your list of the Top 5 MCs you are feeling! I am curious about your opinions! Don't be afraid! I won't be hard on you??

I never realized how many people didn't know how to leave comments on this blogger site?? I have gotten several emails asking me how to leave "comments" on here, so I decided to post these simple steps to share with everyone that may not know? It's really, really simple, so here we go:
Step 1: Click the highlighted word "COMMENTS" at the bottom of the post where you want to leave a message or comment for me! A small window should appear if you followed the steps properly?
Step 2: In the small window, click either "Other" or "Anonymous" to setup your identity. Clicking "Other" allows you to type/create a screen name that will be attached to your comment. Clicking "Anonymous" will allow you to leave a comment without revealing your identity! Why would you do that??
Step 3: Click the empty block under the words "Leave Your Comment," and type away!
Step 4: Once you finish typing in your comment, just click the "Publish Your Comment" button at the bottom of the small window, and you're done!

It's simple as eating a ding-dong with a cold glass of milk!! I hope this helps with the confusion?? If I don't see more comments, I will know something!

The state of music has discouraged me at times over the years. Technology has in some cases stolen the creativity out of the music! Sampling music has become a lucrative way for producers to take a sound from another artist's work, and make it their own. In some cases, the original artist is paid for their sample, but many time they're not! Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I personally enjoy hearing some of my favorite classics being rehashed with a great singer or MC laying verses over it. My problem with sampling is the lack of knowledge that's given to the younger generation of music downloaders and consumers that have no clue that Kanye West used an Aretha Franklin sample when he produced the track, "Ms. Fat Booty" for Mos Def. Do they know that Kirk Franklin's lastest single, "Looking For You" uses a classic Patrice Rushen sample? That type of information is unknown to most, unless you read the fine print in the album credits. With downloading being so popular these days, most people don't own the original album CD booklet to find out that type of information even if they wanted to!

I remember back in the day, when I was trying to introduce my uncle (who DJed professionally for several years) to some hiphop I was listening to, and he would deliberately point out what original song that artist stole from to make the beat! I thought it was funny back then, but now I appreciate the point that he was making. In the early days of hiphop, rap artists didn't put the original sample information in the liner notes of their album in most cases? No credit or money was given to the original artists at all! Those conversations with my uncle encouraged me to seek out the original songs that were used for sampling in some of my favorite hiphop songs. Over the years, I have collected some incredible music from the 70's and 80's, where a lot of samples used in the later years were created. Today's producers can flip, strip, screw, and chop any sample into something the original artists themselves wouldn't even recognize with the technology that is available in the new millennium. That makes it harder the catch the theives!

Why learn how to play an instrument, when you can just sample it? Why be creative when you can just steal someone else's creativity?? These are the types of attitudes that have killed the music industry in some aspects! Some loyal consumers I know personally have become disgusted with the politics, lack of creativity, and blatant exploitation of today's music! In most cases, I can't blame them! I am trying to do my part in keeping good music alive by spotlighting artists with this site that don't normally get the exposure they deserve. I also buy music to support these artists as well! Let's not forget, it is a business!

A few months ago, I put together a mixx of classic hiphop songs and the original samples that they used for the beats! I did it for fun. Recently, people have been asking me for a copy of that mixx, so I decided to share it with everyone for a limited time! Some of these samples you may know, and others you may not? Check it out, just because it's musically interesting if nothing else. There is probably one sample that will surprise you? I will provide the tracklisting at a later date for you folks that want to know the name of the original samples!

Hopefully, 2006 will be a great year for music? There are a few albums that "supposed" to drop at the beginning of this year that I am excited about! Currently, these albums have limited information available on the internet about them, but I guess it's like that to throw off the bootleggers? As more information becomes available, I will keep you posted! Artists: V, J-Dilla, Planet Asia, Up Hygh and Donnell Jones will be making noise in 2006!
