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"http://www.zshare.net/audio/182506856c7e09eb/
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"http://www.zshare.net/audio/18250990722cc149/
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)"http://www.zshare.net/audio/182512406fb9f55e/
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...
