Weekend At Diggedy's - Volume 5

Damn.. These Friday's creep up pretty quickly..

Choice jams for this Friday, March 9th.

Tha Alkaholiks - "Mary Jane" (Madlib remix)

This song is so fucking smooth. Like many songs, the first time I heard this was on a pause tape from Stretch & Bobbito. God bless that show. When I went off to college, my poor 15 year old brother - a sophomore in high school - would set the alarm every 45 minutes from 1-5am on Thursday nights to flip the tapes and mail 'em off to me. His grades suffered, but he did it for Hip-Hop. Once my folks wised up to the plan, Papa Diggedy got involved and fixed the situation by hooking up a VCR to the radio and just dubbing it on VHS tapes. What does any of this have to do with the Liks song? Nothing really. I just don't have much more to say on it. You know who the Liks are. You know who Madlib is. It's fucking smooth. Download it!

Lord Finesse featuring Big L - "Yes You May" (remix)

This song, which came out in '92, should be required listening. Seriously. This is what emceeing is all about. No one should ever be allowed to rock a mic without having this embedded in their head. I'm a huge Finesse fan, and this song is like swimming in the ball pit at Chuck E Cheese. Only they aren't balls. They are punchlines. It's almost 2am. What the f*ck do you want from me? Download it!

Biggie Smalls, Snagglepuss, Pudgee The Phat Bastard, Mackwild, Positive K, Red Bandit, Grand Daddy IU, Raggedy Man, & Grand Puba - "9 Dogs"

Come on. You know I'm not going to have a March 9 edition of Weekend At Diggedy's and not have any B.I.G. File this under Wex's dope Biggie cameos. Like all songs I post, I listen to them again, shut the lights off in my room, and sobb uncontrollably. I swear to God, I had no idea rap would transition the way it did, as quickly as it did. I wasn't prepared. It's like your best friend in high school coming back home from college and he's a scientologist. All you want to talk about is baseball and albums and he's talking about aliens and Tom Cruise steps and shit. The quality of this song is dirty, and stinking. Just the way I like it. Download it!

That's all folks.. I hope to see you all in 20 hours for what will prove to be a very, very enjoyable evening.

Word Life.

That Lord Finesse remix is one of those tracks you wish was on the album instead of the actual album version. Can we get re-issues with bonus tracks? Hmmm?

Sure sure, but I can't make out Biggie's sex tips 'cause everything's censored out. How'm I supposed to improve my game like this?

You can tape off the radio on a VCR? Huh? I have never heard such foolishness in my life. I wish I had known that back in the day. I'm retroactively jealous. Anyway, good looks for this Liks joint.
