Slap Chop/ Rap Chop

Just watch this until the end, this ish is too funny:

and then repeat again and again...

Here's the original for a point of reference when you need a break:

Yes, that's Vince, also from Sham-Wow. As a side note, read this story about a recent incident he was involved in. Whoops, poor Vince.

FTotD (formerly known as Friday's Track of the Day)


Today's gem is from DJ Cleon, a DJ/ producer from France. I can't tell you much more about him cuz his bio is in French (Tiny, translation please?) It's the title track off the EP pictured above called "Jaylis & Family," and it's a burner. The whole EP is worth picking up as its hot with funk and latin influences. So if you're into those sounds then get out and grab it. Groove Distribution (a great online retail record spot) says this about the release "DJ CLEON drops this 8-track funky breaks bomb on us, ready for the b-boys to tear it up. Big bongos and plenty of groove." Here is the best track off the EP, give it a spin:

Stay tuned for next week's FTotD, it's something special I made and you'll definitely wanna ch-check it out (there's a hint for ya)...

A Trip Back in Time (to 2003)

Peep this video that I did with Tiny a few years back. He set up the ill shot with his lamp, I ruined it with my scratches :) Enjoy.

New Lif Droppin' Tuesday!

So I heard it today, new Mr. Lif album is being released Tuesday, April 21st (Out now on iTunes). "I Heard It Today" (yea, thats why I started the post like I did) sounds like it'll be a treat for Lif fans and a return to a more cohesive album like "I Phantom" after "Mo' Mega" was a bit all over the place. You can tell he's on a similar kick as the "I Phantom" & "Emergency Rations EP" as the artwork for the single uses the same characters.

The beats are handled by Edan, J-Zone, Willie Evans Jr., Therapy, and more so they'll be alot more interesting than a few of the tracks on the last effort, no El-P production here as he is no longer on the Def Jux label. There's a nice interview here about the album, his Def Jux break-up, and his dreads. Make sure you peep the new track at the bottom of the page. And also, download this. Haven't listened to it yet but it's a 50+ minute megamix of Mr. Lif tracks, old & new.

Looks like he is on tour now so check him out in a city near you and support real hip-hop. No DC date but he was just hear a few months ago so you can't fault him for that.

Friday Track of the Day

So I feel the need to get this thing up and running again, so here's a start. Maybe I'll at least make an effort to get a FTofD up on the regs as without a computer some things I want to do aren't as straight-forward. I found this file as I was skimming thru DJ Hut's (man, I'm gonna miss this store) computer and thought I'd post it as its a beast funk monster:

Just remember, she's a bad mamma jamma...
