Weekend at Diggedy's - Volume 67

And we at it again, and we at it again......................

Party people in the place to be WHAT IS UP!

My apologies for the extended absence. Been a crazy few weeks, but I am back and ready to delve into my musical collection to share with you.

My Yankees are nearly deceased.

My Giants are back in the NY/NJ Groove (I'll let the second half slide boys).

I am healthy, alive, and I can't complain.

For today's re-launch, what better way to kick it off than with my favorite rapper (and The Other Guy's most hated rapper): Del The Funke Homosapien. In addition to his first few albums (all dope in my opinion), Del has a slew of b-sides, remixes, guest appearances, etc that are nitro fresh.. I have assorted ones on cassettes and cd's here and there, but recently came across a whole grip of them online.. And now I want to share some of my favorites with you.. I don't even know where to really start because there are so many.. I'm sure I'll get around to most of them before Weekend at Diggedy's ends in 2050.

And with that, the choice cuts for this Friday, September 5th:

Del - "Nowadays"

This came out between I Wish My Brother George Was Here and No Need For Alarm.. Definitely leans more towards the debut in terms of vibe.. I always compare Del's first two albums with Tribe's first two.. The difference between the first and the second were day and night, but both are extremely dope in their own right.. It's a perfect example of great artists maturing.. Somewhere along the lines, the real Del was replaced by a robot.. Hey, it happens.. But this is vintage Del.. I love this track. Download it!

The Coup feat Del - "Repo Man"

This is the type of track that would have ended up on IWMBGWH. Very dope Bay Area collabo.. Not much more to really say other than you need to download the damn thing, ok?

Del - "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo (remix)"

This is a remix off of a track on IWMBWH. I always like how they flipped this track... A lot of these early Hiero tracks did a great job at switching up the beat mid song into something even better.. This is one of them.. Just a dope track you need to make your own.

Well, it's good to be back.

If you hate Del, then just pretend I didn't come back til next week.

Have a great weekend people...

Kind of love/hate Del. Great rapper, but at some point he slid into the same old snide cadence on every line and became one of those smarty-pants rappers that wear out their welcome after a while. Kind of like J-Treds, but less clever and inventive.

That said, I love "Repo Man" (and this whole era of The Coup), and anything from IWMBGWH is good by me. I once sampled "The Wacky World Of Rapid Transit" on a recording of a song I wrote about meeting strangers on the bus... along with Bootie Brown's "Shoulda took the bus!" from "Officer".... thanks for listening.

Oh yeah, and Mistadobalina was my shit in the kibbutz disco every Friday night, back during my year driving a tractor in the Israeli desert. "The way you're on my dick must really hurt your knees." pa-Zow.

Del is the goddamn man. This is awesome. And screw your Giants! They did give my Skins every opportunity to get back in that game. Damn, it was frustrating. And I will revel in your Yankee's despair (or is it Yankees'). Although, it's not like my Nats or O's are doing anything worth mentioning. Hell, the O's only come out to play when it's the Yanks.

And I can't believe it has been over a year since I have moved from NYC and attended an HHK. It used to be the highlight of my month. Hopefully I can get back up there during an HHK weekend sometime soon.

And if any hip-hop heads are into hockey, join my Hip-Hop & Hockey fantasy league at . Sorry about the plug :)
