KRISS KROSS & SUPER CAT performing “Alright” at the Uptown Comedy Club taking retaliation shots at Da Youngstas in a subliminal rhyme. Pretty bold move to do that in New York.

It’s ALL LOVE!

Bobo Meets Rhettmatic @ STRICTLY SOCIAL

Playmaker and I went out to The Little Temple Bar last night to check out “Bobo Meets Rhettmatic”. They blessed us with a fusion of turntablism and live procusion play from Eric Bobo (son of the latin jazz legend Willie Bobo) who’s down with Cypress Hill. He brought that raw energy you feel from the power of the drums enhancing the sounds that Dj Rhttmatic (Beatjunkies) was providing. From old skool / True Skool Hip Hop, Funk, & Latin, its a show you have to see live for yourself.

My favorite was when Rhett played Haitian Lady off Willie Bobo’s album Spanish Grease it was cool to see Bobo play his rhythms over his own dads song. They also did a lot of improv and Rhett displaying his skills with the cuts and double times was real ill to see because you hardly hear or see anyone working the tables like that nowadays.

Even though the elements are deeply rooted into Hip Hop, anybody outside of the culture would love and appreciate this live show. So do yourself a favor and check it out! It’s for everybody and anyone who wants to experience music presented in a unique way.

Here’s two still shots of the night. *note: I didn’t want to upload the video we took cause we would rather encourage you to go to the live show and besides Playmaker had the camera and can’t keep the dam camera steady and framed lol… IT’s All Love homie!

Check out their promo vid…..

SHOUT OUT TOO!!! Chuck Cawthorn and Andrew Betita for the time machine convo that always inspires me!

(PROBABLY ADD MORE PICS SORRY FOR THE SPELLING AND GRAMMER I”LL CHECK IT LATER!!!)

We went all around the planet, pitchin, and no one hit it
I’m the first batter up Ahmad — well then come widdit
All around the planet, pitchin, and no one hit it
I’m the first batter up Ahmad — well then come widdit

So lately I’ve been having convo’s with friends I hardly see now a days, but still keep in contact with via facebook and lot of the talk has been on some time machine talk reflecting on the past of the Classic years of HIP HOP. What up Chuck! What Up Drew! lol Anyway my boy chuck posted the youtube video “Come Widdit” with (in lyrical appearance order) AHMAD, RAS KASS & SAAFIR. Before I heard the song I was like a freshman in high skool reading the Source mag at home and saw Ras-Kass got the “HIP HOP QUOTABLE OF THE MONTH” I use to cut these out and tape them to my bath room wall and just read them while doin bathroom business lol T.M.I. may bad.

When I read along the quotable, I’d try to rap and see if I could guess the rhythm & cadence of the flow than later hear the song and see how close I got to it. To be honest I never got any quotable right lol. I couldn’t find the rhythm at all. It was hard without ever hearing the beat, and after reading it I wondered how in the hell did he cram all these big ass words in here? Like it seem like the flow was going over 4/4 bars with no pauses.Than deciphering the flow was a mind phuck cause It was a complex battle rhyme with hard hitting punch lines. Hella dope I was desperate to find the album this track was on by digging through all the music at the stores cause the internet wasn’t invented yet lol.

I finally figured out what album the single was on. It was on the Street Fighter 2 Soundtrack. It had Nas, Pharcyde, The B.U.M.S., & Anotha LEVEL. If you aint got this album get it. I got like five copies and 2 of them are warped. But every time I see this vinyl album for some reason I just keep buying them like if they were baseball cards.

So when I first heard the song, Ahmad was up to bat first and dropped his gem which had a cool as flow perfect to be the lead off spitter. Than I finally got to hear Ras Kass’s verse and I was like this dude is droppin that modern day science in a battle style cadence. His flow to the beat was just weaving in and out through the bars so fluid. I was very impressed and Inspired. Now after hearing the “Come Widdit” vocal sample, over the banging bass and drum you hear some outer space efx. The song was just an instant banger with a dope group chant for the chorus.

So now Saafir is up to spit clean up. With his on beat off beat flow, he was perfect to be the encore verse to this single. I mean it’s not like I wasn’t familiar with his style cause he’s album Boxcar Sessions Tape came out when I was a freshman so I was already a fan, but the combination of these 3 made an instant banger for the walkman, aka only for the hardcore head ¬†aka the music your ex-girlfriend love to hate lol…..

Now that I think about the whole song should of been printed as a HIP HOP QUOTABLE RHYME OF THE MONTH.

Heres a link to old my mix “MegaMayhem” mix for listen and free download.

“Come Widdit” comes in at the 10:10 minute mark (agaon oly for the hardcore hip hop heads)

The fans phucked around and creatively edited muppett footage to the song. It’s pretty clever I must say, it definitely helped me get through this Monday with a laugh and a smile.

As far as the song, it’s an instant banger. Kanye never fails to put out the ill shit….
