HHK Comes Back to the Knit with EXCLUSIVE Ralph McDaniels Video Mix

Has it really been 2 months since we last rocked it at Knitting Factory? I have no memory but according to the pics page, yes. It's Hip Hop Honors Week next month and what better way to honor your favorite emcee than by killing one of their songs onstage at HHK.

We're especially proud to have "Uncle" Ralph McDaniels present an exclusive 1-hour video mix from 10-11, showing you his picks of classic hip-hop videos and, almost as important, FINALLY giving DJ Wex that hour to shotgun 12 Heinekens and mingle with the hip-hoparazzi in the crowd. If you don't know Ralph's name, get familiar.

That what I'm saying. Keep that man away from me. He's a pitbull with a drawing pad and marker. Vicious, I tell you!

"Robert Downey Junior. What do I say about THAT. (long pause) If you jump in front of my Pathfinder in a dark alley, I will shoot you."
-Uncle Ralph McDaniels

Sounds like he's more afraid of me than I am of him.

"If you jump in front of my Pathfinder in a dark alley, I will shoot you."

In a more just world, that catch phrase extends far beyond the HHK walls.

Yeah. Let's see now. It could be a repeated hook in like a Kool Keith song or something. Like "Get Off My Elevator".

Or some other really wordy rapper.

But hey, Newman. Don't get me started on a "more just world."

In a more just world, Unca Scrooge, I mean, Uncle Ralph, still says that shit, but then he holds up a 7.5 after saying it, and I'm through to Round 2. Bye Charlie. Thanks for attending.

Now it's a whole new game. I retire the Cat-In-The-Hat gear and go buck wild on "The Takeover". All the other competitors feel like I'm talking directly to them.

Suddenly K-Dot's nervous, maybe for the first time in his sneaker-lovin' life. Doni D's jheri-curl wig starts to feel itchy. And Chef's gold chain is weighing him down.... down... down....

(Best believe, I've spent time fabricating this fantasy sequence. Sigh.)
