Lend me your ears...

In the interest of keeping the event fresh and lively, we have removed certain songs from the list.

I cannot emphasize enough that this had NOTHING to do with ANYONE'S performances (on the contrary actually, because some of these songs were done as good if not better than the actual artist). Some of these songs haven't even been done once!

The HHK triumverate meet monthly to discuss all things HHK, and this month we went down the list song by song to see which should stay in the starting line-up, and which should sit out the next couple of plays.

Here is the list :

ATCQ - Find A Way
Eminem - I'm Shady
Eminem - Way I Am
Eric B & Rakim - Follow the Leader
Geto Boys - Damn It Feels Good
Jay-Z & Em - Renegade
Keith Murray - Most Beautifullest
Roots - Stay Cool
Run DMC - King of Rock

As always, we are scouring record stores, Ebay, J New's mom's garage, etc for new records to add. We always welcome suggestions, and if you find a record/s we think will make a great addition, we'll buy it from you (face value, though..don't pull any "this record is out of print and cost me $499.99" ish).

That's all for now...

Your friendly neighborhood host,

Josh Diggedy

I'm on it. I have to run down to fatbeats to pick up some tix anyway.

By the way, any one interested in going to the Brooklyn Bodega CMJ showcase at BB Kings on Oct. 31st featuring Prince Paul, Stetsasonic, CL Smooth, A.G., Dres, The Juggaknots, etc.? I won the tix but didn't realize I can't go since I have class that night.

Yo Kev!

If you don't find "Around the Way Girl" @ Phat Beats. . . you can always get it here:

The seller said that there is an instrumental track on there.

Be wary, my friends, the instrumental on the official Around the Way Girl is not the same as the real song. I learned the hard way.

The B-Side (BKA the hip hop Remix) ain't bad either. Still not the album, but it's gotta a little thug to it. But you can't go wrong with the Stay With Me Remix (video version), all the ladies love it.

Hit fatbeats today, didn't get a chance to listen to Around the Way Girl, but I did notice they have an instrumental album for Common's Be but then again, i don't know how much love the HHK crowd has for Common.
