the next edition of Hip Hop Karaoke is going to be in Brooklyn, at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.

it's a special one, for a couple of reasons.

one, it's going to be an early Sunday night show, with signup at 7pm, show at 8pm. i think that's cool, personally. it'll have a laid-back in the cut, sunday night cold chillin type of vibe. you know.

the venue is brand new and beautiful. if you've ever been to the bowery ballroom, it looks just like that, but newer.
it's totally FREE, as usual.

two, at THIS edition of HHK, you can actually MAKE some money.

here's the deal-

the first 10 performers to tackle a song by a BROOKLYN emcee are automatically entered into a contest to win $200 cash. the cash goes to who we, the HHK team, think delivered the best performance.

so, what happens if you're not THE best?

well, then you have a shot at the $50 second place prize.

sign-up and performance order is still first come, first served. the winners get announced at the end of the night.

see you there.

Weekend at Diggedy's - Volume 65

Evening ya'll...

Been a crazy day, so no stories for you fools...

Just the music...

I'm sure some people wish I'd just do that every week anyway.

Your choice cuts for this Friday, July 11th...

Brand Nubian - "What The F*ck"

I posted a track off of Everything Is Everything a couple of weeks ago... Normally I like to spread everything out, but hey.. It's my blog. What the f*ck indeed! DOWNLOAD IT!

Show & AG feat Walli World - "Got Ya Back"

Another album on cassette bumped on the regular (Goodfellas)... Came out a year after Everything Is Everything... Such a butter soft track.. Love this sh*t..

Siah and Yeshua Da PoEd - "The Visualz"

This one's for everyone who was part of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe scene in the 90's.

Love this track.

Fondle Em.

Have a good weekend folks.

Weekend at Diggedy's - Volume 64

Party people in the place to be...

We're going to kick this one off a little early since I won't have access to a computer tomorrow.

Hopefully everyone is going to do some form of grilling... Catch some fireworks.. Fingers crossed that the Yanks take care of business against the Sox.

I shall be roaming around this weekend...No big plans.. Nothing to really report to the masses.

I was going to try and have an "American" theme to today's post, but I don't really have the time to think of 3 songs that will fit that topic.

But I do know of one off the top of my head! Your choice cuts for this Thursday, July 3rd...

2 Live Crew - "Banned In The U.S.A"

This was all I could think of, ok??? I always gave the Boss much respect for letting them sample this. You know you loved this when it came out. Download it!

Fat Joe - "Fat Joe's In Town"

This tape got SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much burn in my walkman when it came out. This song probably more so than any on the album (Jealous One's Envy). For a good month up at good ol' Suny Binghamton, my roomate (big ups to Drew Boogie) and I revised the chorus and left something like this as our answering machine message: "Microphone check one two, one two, shouts to the Dickenson and CIW, whatever you do, leave a message for Drew and the Jew, that's all I ask of you..." And we wondered why people didn't talk to us. Good lord we were corny. Anyway, on the album, the clip of Cyrus speaking to all of the gangs in The Warriors intro's this track, and sets the tone for just pure Boogie down fire. Download it!!!

2Pac - "Old School"

Never was the biggest of Pac fans, but this song went completely unnoticed by me until DJ Wex put me on to it. Really dope. Play it during your bbq. People will love you for it.

Have a great weekend people.
