0097 James Brown Break? – @ ?

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

I’m  not sure if this is JB or not, and I can’t remember where I grabbed the audio from.

It’s hot though, real hot.

Sample spotters, if you know what this is, fire a comment in.

Happy Friday.

Update: EPMD gets mixed in at the end, and I wonder if the beginning is EPMD..

“sentimental, heartbreaking, everything’s my fault”

Shout to JT for peeping me to this. I bet these guys are trippers. This song is really cool. I hope you don’t think it cuts off at the end of the clip because the part at the end of the best part is pretty awesome. But hey, the beginning part is wicked too and I can’t post the whole song. Bloggin’ ain’t easy, ya dig!?

0095 Diplomats – I’m Ready @ 2:33

“Santana magnifique”

This one is going out to my buddy Jono who had a baby boy last week, congrats J! And yes, same cat who likes the So Fresh So Clean track from Outkast because he likes to shower a lot. He’s always liked the Diplomats too, and I think it’s because he works in International Relations over in Europe… lol I’m being dead serious :)

Found this mp3 again after originally having it on a mixed mini disc compilation, it’s one of my favourite Dipset tracks. Best part is Camron, and even though they all only rhyme 4 bars on, 4 bars off, it’s Camron that hits the hardest when he comes back. That’s why he’s the Don of the Dip!

I’m Ready 2:33 – 3:08

0094 Kanye and Taylor Swift @ the MTV Awards 2010

“but tonight you’ll live it all again…”

A two parter, and I know this is old, but after listening again to both Taylor Swift and Kanye’s live performances  at the MTV awards, I want to say how f’in brilliant this spectacle was. I don’t know if they’re on the same label or not, or if Kanye knew her song was going to be about him? I hope he didn’t. Listening to the lyrics of  Innocent right after reading Kanye’s twitter stream apology a couple days prior plays like a modern music version of a Shakespearean play. The PR flacks who threw this one together deserve maximum credit for getting every last cent out of the Kanye/ Taylor Swift fiasco.

Listen to the best part of Taylor Swift’s song Innocent where she forgives Kanye, I love it.

And then Kanye to close out the show, with the weight of the night on his shoulders, blows the roof off with his MPC.

Listen to the best part of Kanye’s song Runaway with Pusha  T. where he makes a toast to scumbags and asks you to Runaway. Damn!
