live guy with glasses

As anyone that checks this blog knows, I like to look for cd singles. It's perfect for Serato, you have your instrumental, radio edit and LP version, just like a traditional 12". Today I ran across a gem @ one of my local spots, Main Source's "Peace Is Not The Word to Play" single off of their CLASSIC 1991 album Breaking Atoms. If you are a early 90's hip hop fan and have not heard this album in it's entirety...I suggest you track down a copy.

Artist :: Main Source
Album :: Breaking Atoms (Wild Pitch)
Year :: 1991
Track :: Peace Is Not The Word to Play

Samples used

ODB (1968-2004)

Rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard, who lived a life as wild as his lyrics, collapsed and died inside a recording studio today (Nov. 13, 3 years ago). He was 35 years old. ODB is gone but will never be forgotten...

"The one man army Ason"

what goes around

I just found this dope Grand Puba clip from Elekta records. Peep the style in this video, Ray Ban shades, clean fades, fresh gear...Brand Nubian had so much swagger. Try and keep up!

capital tax

The homie Evan Hecox will be showing some new work in Austin tomorrow. From what I understand, the work will be based off of photos he shot while recently in Mexico. If this is not true, believe the show will be dope regardless. Later on in the evening I will be kicking it over at The Beauty Bar with the Fam. Prince Klassen and Egyptian Lover. Slide through!

So far my LA trip has consisted of sleep and coughing up green stuff. Hopefully that will all change tonight, I am feeiling a little better and the Vans opening is popping off. Check back for photos and such.
