First off can i say a big sorry to any peeps that been checking my blog recently and been dissapointed with the lack of content...all i got to say is i been a busy boy! But now i back and i have a few huge drops for you all.
I sat with an old school friend the other day in the pub who i hadnt seen for a while, we ended up changing numbers and over the last few days we been practically living at each others houses listening to hip hop and copying shit up for each other so believe me when i say i have some very very classic shit coming up for you over the next few weeks.
Now the thing that defines the golden era of hip hop for me was that pretty much everyone had 6/7 absolute gems on there albums. there was a complete lack of filler back in the day and practically every album i own from then has been played to death? i cant think of an album that has made me do that for a while now.
While it seems essential to be rolling in a crew 20 deep right now back in the days you could be part of a crew but your album was yours and yours alone and apart from the odd verse here and there and the production credits. But what that gave us was little crews that consistently had classic albums. So with my next few posts im gonna throw up albums from similar crews that rolled together so you can see how different it is listening to a crew like D.I.T.C back then to listening to someone like G-Unit nowadays? (why would you?)
Im not a G-unit hater or anything but i think thats the easiest crew to pick out of the hat and say whats wrong with hip hop nowadays? you can buy pretty much any album from the G-unit crew and you know what you gonna get before you buy it, the same cannot be said for what crews used to throw out back in the 90's.
I always try to keep my posts fairly to the point which is the music!!! at the end of the day i know 80% of readers only go to the download and click. I'm not gonna get all funny about that cos frankly i dont care too much, dont get me wrong i love it when i get comments and feedback but at end of the day im here to share my shit up. Im guilty of doing the same thing quite often and i guess the reason i started my blog was to just put out the stuff i loved and hoped that people would occasionally say "damn! and then maybe fill in any gaps that i had not covered" and so far thats happened a lot so my whole reason for doing this works for me so thats what im gonna stick too. There are a few readers of my blog who i know do check in lots and always leave me a comment or 2 :-) and that is greatly appreciated! so hopefully i can show that back in my posts coming up over the weeks!
I will try my best to not leave it as long anymnore to update ...peace
