R.I.P. Beat Street

Beat Street was one of the most famous hip-hop record stores in New York, if not the world. It closed up shop in October but the below movie, a video eulogy if you will, was worth a post.




Also: The Daily News wrote about the closing here.

What happened to Wex's Wednesday?

Here's a list I was starting to compile in my head...

SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST-- songs that are both the last track on their album AND the most famous song on that album

e.g.

1. Scenario - A Tribe Called Quest (The Low End Theory)
2. Fight The Power - Public Enemy (Fear Of A Black Planet)
....

any more? "Stakes Is High" almost qualifies (it's the second-last track on the album)...

Paid in Full - Eric B. & Rakim (Paid in Full)

Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down - Brand Nubian (In God We Trust)

I'll Be - Foxy Brown f. Jay-Z (Ill Na Na)

Unbelieveable - Notorious B.I.G. (Ready To Die)*

*I would personally put this one, but I think others would say Juicy, Big Poppa, or Warning are more famous. I guess it depends on what circle you're in.

I'd love to helm the ship sometime Wex. Kev, I personally don't feel Unbelievable qualifies. First off, Suicidal Thoughts comes after it. Second, there are just so many singles that stick out on that album -- One More Chance, Juicy, Everyday Struggle, Big Poppa... I can't think of Unbelievable as the definitive song from Ready To Die.

But anyway. On to more important topics.

Like the way the Knitting Factory is going to be lifted off its foundations tomorrow night!

Russ, tell these rap cats how dope Whodini is! I'm waiting for them to put "Funky Beat" on the song list. Wex has got my 12" instrumental marinatin' in the crates!

Best part of June HHK at Southpaw: Van showing Josh and I the Whodini 12" and staring at disbelief when neither of us had heard of the song.

De laatste tijd had ik om deel te nemen in de replica horloges vele evenementen die vereist meer elegante outfits. Aangezien ik niet veel elegant uitziende horloges hebben, ik kocht onlangs een, een replica horloges omega Globemaster en natuurlijk moest ik een review over repliceert.

Mijn collectie horloges bevat veel groter formaat modellen die een casual look. Daarom moest ik een meer elegante ontwerp toe te voegen en deze is precies goed. Ik moest kiezen uit een Rolex Cellini en esta Omega. Ik koos voor de co-axiale replica horloge op het einde. Ik replica horloges rolex vond het meer geschikt voor mijn stijl. Omega één van de meest bekende luxe horlogemerken. Zijn populariteit zelfs stak de grenzen ruimte. Enkele van de meest beroemde collecties omvatten de Speedmaster, Seamaster en Constellation.
