Weekend At Diggedy's - Volume 23

Tomorrow night.

The reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeturn to the Knitting Factory.

Feels like it's been FOREVER.

Gotta feeling Saturday is gonna be a good one.

For the fans and press, please note : There will NOT be an appearance by 48 Hours tomorrow night. They will likely be in the club separately, but there is not a scheduled collaboration.

On to the choice cuts for this Friday, July 13th. WTF? It's Friday the 13th???

Alright. In honor of Jason, all the cuts today will be from masked men.

KMD featuring Busta Rhymes, Lord Jamar, and Sadat X - "Nitty Gritty" (remix)

So I'm at my Uncle's friend's home about a year ago. Gathering of a lot of their friends, including a 19 year old upstart I had vaguely known when he was a simple 7 year old running around without a care in the world. So now, the kid looks like an extra from a Lupe Fiasco video. He barely remembered me (and I him), but his mom intro's us and of course does the obligatory "you guys might like the same music." He looked me up and down like I was some 55 year old retired school teacher from Long Island, and went back to what he was doing. Fine by me, until we later found ourselves the only 2 people in a room and I felt obligated to begin an awkward conversation. "So what kind of Hip Hop do you like?" I said. He replies "Underground stuff. You wouldn't know it." Now I'm sitting there laughing to myself, because mother f*cker, I am the underground. I said "Like who?" He says "Well, MF Doom.." I stop him and say "Yeah I like Doom. Are you a fan of his KMD stuff?" Stares at me, and says "Who is KMD?". Game over kid.

Ghostface - "My Guitar"

I know the mask is off. But there was a time he had just a faded visage behind a black stocking. This is Ghost wilding out over George Harrison's "Guitar Gently Weeps." Please to enjoy.

DJ Honda feat The Gravediggaz (Poetic and Frukwan) - "We Run Shit"
Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's a stretch. But I can't think of other masked men right now! They fit with the Friday, the 13th theme, though. Just download it!

See you all tomorrow night.

Thanks, Diggedy, for the KMD track in particular. That's one hell of a collabo! Any time you get to hear a track with Sadat X you haven't heard before is always a good time, in my opinion.

Great back story on that one, too!

Man I love those Gravediggaz, especially Fruitkwan. RZA's conduct disappointed me with respect to Poetic's illness and death. Didn't even visit his man in the hospital. R.I.P. Grym Reaper.

I love moments like you described in the KMD blurb. People who think they're the shit, and then you stump them. Anyway, that remix is the reason I hang on to my quasi-bootleg copy of Mr. Hood that Doom himself released before Traffic did a much better job (sans remix of course).

Hold on, hold on Teufel. Let's get specific.

Do you mean:

a) GOPHER balls, as in the testicles of the small prairie rodent?


b) GOFER balls, as in the testicles of the low-level employee whose chief responsibilities are to "go fer" coffee, newspapers, etc.?

Please clarify.

Heyyy, Diggedy, schoolteachers can be cool! Maybe not so much the retired ones from Long Island, but I still object!
