Weekend At Diggedy's - Version 41.5

Why the .5?

Because RDJ had a guerilla Weekend at Diggedy's posting last Friday that was NOT sanctioned by myself OR HHK.

I was off in Turkey neverland that weekend, and hoped that the world would respect my privacy at this time of familial holiday gatherings and such.

99.999999% did. I even received "good for you for taking the week off!" e-mails from several fans.

So when I signed on and saw a posting of 3 tracks in the comment section that were not my own, I became despondent. I spent the remaining days of my weekend bunkered in my room under a blanket listening to Tom Petty's greatest hits.

Today, when it was time to add MY newest installment, 41 just didn't feel right. Didn't feel pure. Someone had already taken my 41. But I wasn't ready for 42 yet. So here I again on my own. Going down the only road I've ever known..

And on that note, here are the choice cuts for this Friday, November 30th.*

* = This week marks the beginning of an all new era of Weekend at Diggedy's. Do you remember in Major League when Bob Uecker says "In case you haven't noticed, and judging by the attendace you haven't...". Well, judging by the download counts, no one is downloading sh*t. I don't really care about the comments. I just wanted people to listen to some good music. I've tried to make it palatable to everyone, throw some treats from known artists you may or may not have had. But no. They complain about the state of hip hop in 2007, and don't bother to download the treats I'm giving them. What's your point Diggedy? Are you shutting the blog down? Hell no. From now on, I'm posting sh*t I feel like reminiscing about. I don't care if I'm talking out loud to myself. Ask Wex and Jay. I talk just so I can hear my own voice. This ain't nothing new. xoxo

Black Rob - "Live From The Eastside"

There's a 45 second intro. K Slay yelling in the beginning of the song and the end. Same beat that Beanie Sigel used. This is a few years old. But Rob KILLS it. Just a fresh track. Guess this was on a mix tape. It could have been recorded with a headphone being used as a mic and people banging pots and pans in the background. Nothing could kill this song for me. Download it!

Big Red feat Diamond - "How They Want It"

I heard this song once on Stretch and Bob and taped it. For about 6 years I had no idea that there was another dude on the song. They just played the Diamond verse. Not only did they play it, but they brought it back like every 5 seconds. "Hey yo bust it, I make that shit that clocks"... Over and over again.. You get to the next line, boom, they bring it back again. I cannot listen to this original version without getting this nervous twitch expecting someone to bring the beat back. Downloading the original is also when I realized that there was another cat on the track. So there. Download it! If Anthony Mason likes Diamond, so can you fool.

Souls of Mischief - "Step To My Girl"

When I was a kid, any sort of dis towards Del was fighting words. That dude was my favorite rapper, period. I had to get like 5 copies of I Wish My Brother George Was Here because I kept wearing the tape out. A Hiero head was born. Obviously "93 Til Infinity" is an undeniable Hip Hop classic, but when I heard the full length, it was game over. I don't think I have EVER been as disappointed with an artist from one album to the next as much as I was with Souls. I loved the debut LP THAT much. It was bananas. Not a skippable track on the whole thing. After I heard it, I heard this demo and just flipped over it. It's ridiculous. I remember listening to this very track on a cassette tape that I still have, and saying to myself that these dudes will never ever ever ever ever make a wack track. It's fresh, and you need to download it.

Have a great weekend everyone.

And I hope you know I'm just kidding Mate.

So far I've only gotten to download the Souls track, and it's inCREDible. My girlfriend loves it too.

It's kind of like the emotional B-Side to "Passin Me By".
