elevators.


whaddup hhk'ers...

most importantly, looking forward to seeing everybody this Saturday Night at HHK at the Knitt. you know the drill, 10pm signup, 11pm show. FREE for everybody.

it's also our 1-Year anniversary of being at the Knitting Factory!

what what.
but on today's episode of wex wednesdays, we're going to talk about the songs that feature rappers dealing, in one way or another, with their success. a little something i like to call "high class problems".

i'm going to have to rule out any eminem songs right off the bat. there's just too many to name. we know marshall, money and fame are tough.

some of my favorites:

1. Crossover - EPMD
2. Elevators - OutKast
3. Juicy - Biggie
4. Vapors - Biz Markie
5. Lost Ones - Lauryn Hill

*extra special honorable mentioned goes to: Don't Let It Go to Your Head - Brand Nubian

a De La Soul Is Dead twofer: Not Over 'Til The Fat Lady Plays The Demo / Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)

Actually, Oodles of O's and Pease Porridge also count. That whole album was about them dealing with fame.

But Wex nailed it: Elevators does contain the best single verse on the topic. ("Got stopped in the mall the other day...")
