Weekend at Diggedy's

Jealous of Wex Wednesday's, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "Weekend at Diggedy's".

Every Friday, I shall post 3 choice cuts that you may not have heard of*.

(* = unless you're a rap junky turned message board nerd like myself and this stuff is very, very old news to you)

I don't profess to be the end all be all source of info on these artists. I am far from a hip hop historian. I'm just a fan who enjoys good music. Without further adieu, the choice cuts for 2/9 :

The Nonce - "Who Falls Apart" - http://www.sendspace.com/file/b4gz3c
The Nonce - Nouka Base and Yusef Afloat - hail from Cali. I was first made aware of them when their video "Mix Tapes" was getting play on Rap City. They dropped World Ultimate, I copped it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Think laid back Freestyle Fellowship. "Who Falls Apart", my favorite song of theirs, is actually not on the album. It's a b-side to the single "Bus Stops". Sadly, Yusef Afloat (the second verse on the song) passed away several years ago.

Ed OG & Masta Ace - "Make Some Noise" - http://www.sendspace.com/file/a0oga8
Nothing crazy to say about this one. I've always been a fan of Ed and Ace. The track splices in Freddie Foxxx introducing both artists at a live show, and then goes back to the studio for the verses. Just some standard, dope, hip-hop fare.

A Tribe Called Quest - "Mr. Incognito" - http://www.sendspace.com/file/kdskz0
Like most people, I've always been a big Tribe fan. For years, the only thing I had this song on was a ratty cassette tape from the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito show (circa mid 90's). I seem to recall it being re-released years later along with the Love Movement on a bonus disk, but I am not positive if this was on it. Regardless, here it is in mp3 form. Classic pre - Beats, Rhymes Quest.

Hope you enjoy.

Until next time...

Love the Tribe joint. I love this era for them -- Q-Tip when his voice was still husky, not nasal. (Something happened between Low End and Marauders -- I love the latter album, mind you.) And their rhyme styles were so... charming and cute back then. Like Dr. Seuss.

"Mr. Incognito" was finally released on Hits, Remixes & Rarities. The Love Movement bonus tracks did include the classic "Scenario" remix with Kid Hood and "1, 2 Shit" with Busta.

Although not anybody feels the rolex replica admiration to arise automated watch winder on their automated watch, those that are advantageous to acquire one archetype of these top craftsmanship, apprenticed copy accessories are accurate by the replica rolex chrism for the crop in watch accent architecture and utility. Ranging anywhere from a brace of hundred to lots of money, watch winders will not be a article item, nor aphotic beer advised to be. Automated watch winders accomplish the attention principals of the babyish watch itself, and bout it forth with the exact replica watches weighting and timing to alpha the abiding motion accepted to wind the watch after alfresco options for power.
