Weekend at Diggedy's - Volume 70

It is disgusting on the streets of NY today.... It's sucking the life right out of me...

Not to mention, it's 5:20, but it feels like 11:15.

I'm ready to go home, throw on the pj's, and have a healthy Hot Pockets and wild cherry pepsi dinner..

I've got no baseball the rest of the year since the yankees turned back the clock to 1989 with a stinker of a season (shout out to Mel Hall).. Giants don't play this weekend so I don't have that to look forward to.. My weekend will basically revolve around Chris Rock's new HBO special, and the faint hope that someone will decide to spontaneously have a Sledgehammer marathon at 2am... Fingers crossed!

Time for the choice cuts for this Friday, September 26th...

The Brand New Heavies featuring Grand Puba - "Who Makes The Loot"

This was also on Puba's album, but I first heard it on The Brand New Heavies Heavy Rhyme Experience Volume I. If you don't have this album, you need to get it.. Has Masta Ace, Guru, Main Source, Black Sheep, Pharcyde, Kool G Rap, and Ed OG all rapping over some funky *ss beats and grooves.. This track is my favorite.. It was also the song that alerted a 14 year old Josh to the fact that his mother knows what "skinz" means... It's got such a funky, happy groove that I played it loud not thinking anyone would be paying attention.. Oh, mama Diggedy was.. Not a fan of "never hit skinz once they sag"... Who woulda thought? Meanwhile, her favorite Onyx song is "Blac Vagina Finda".. Go figure. Download it!

Main Source - "Time"

This is a dope *ss unreleased Main Source song.. Those that know me, know I like the Pro... His new album is bananas by the way.. There were a lot of Breaking Atoms era tracks that didn't actual make the album.. This ones really pretty ridiculous.. You really need to be downloading it...

A Tribe Called Quest featuring De La Soul, Black Sheep & L.O.N.S. - "Scenario (demo)"

This made the rounds a month or so ago... One of the original "Scenario" demos with De La and the Black Sheep on it, and different verses from everyone else (basically)... It was rumored to exist for years, and thanks to the power of the internet, it finally surfaced.. There's another one that I've got in the ol' folder, but I'm not posting it unless a lot of people download the Main Source track.

: )

Have a good weekend people

NICE to hear a young De La flowing over an energetic non-D.A.I.S.Y. beat. They didn't get this wild until "Buhloone".

By the way -- I was listening to Thelonious Monk this morning and heard something I recognized from somewhere else -- checkit and see if you can spot it:

"I once caught a bid/Never hit skid/Never date a girl if the girl got a kid."

Brilliant! It's kind of funny for me to say that now as I'm expecting a kid, but back in my "aspiring to be a game-spitter" days, I used to think that was one of the greatest verses ever.
