Weekend at Diggedy's - Volume 27

They were cones!

Cot damn it's disgusting outside..

At least the subways are working...

8 days til the next HHK throwdown.. Start closing the bathroom door and rehearsing in the mirror.. What? Am I the only one?

On to the choice cuts for this Friday, August 10th...

Nas - "It Ain't Hard To Tell" (demo aka "Nas Will Prevail")

Can't ever tell how adept people are at finding things on the many different Hip Hop blogs.. I never want to come off as someone who thinks he's giving you an exclusive.. This song has made the rounds, but on the off chance it's new to you, here it is.. Produced by Large Pro, my understanding is that it was the original version of "It Ain't Hard To Tell", and then was re-worked for radio.. There are a couple of versions of the classic floating around (including the dope ass Extra P remix)... Please to enjoy...

Talib Kweli - "Revolution In Sound"

This one's for Kevvy Kev, Talib Kweli superfan #1. Period. I have yet to listen to Eardrum. Dee Phunk aka Reggie Hammond swears by the album. But this is also the same dude who told me to check for Hammer's "later material". I'll give it a listen and come back one day with my thoughts. Anyway, this song is a cut that didn't make the album. Me thinks it's dope.

Jay Z & Bleek - "Marcyville"

This track is several years old..I'm not gonna lie.. I have no idea who the 3rd verse is.. I tried googling it, but can't find sh*t.. I guess they did another version of it on a Bleek album that has Sigel on it.. Anyone knows who verse 3 is here, hit it up in the blog.. .. Produced by ?uestlove.. Very dope beat.. Nothing much more to say.. They didn't save mankind on this one.. Glad this was brought to another emcee other than Thought.. I can hear BT rapping on this one, but I don't think it would have been a perfect fit.. It's got "hard beat, in need of laid back Jay flow" written all over it.

Have a great weekend people.

Thanks for stopping by....

After some in-depth research, I found that the third dude is Geda K--and I don't know who that is.

Here's a link to the lyrics:
