Four Days Away!

I really can't believe it. We're only 4 days away from the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship. Wow.

I can't even imagine what's going through the contestants minds. The rehearsals, the amount of times they've recited their verses, the friends and the family that are excited to see it all, etc!

We're really excited too. We've worked for months now to put together a really great show -- and I think it will be. If you haven't already, buy some damn tickets. You won't regret it!

Since we've announced Peter Rosenberg as one of the three judges for the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship... it's probably a good time to let you all get to know him a bit better (if you don't already!). One of our favorite projects of his is a series called Noisemakers, in which Peter interviews hip hop legends, on stage in front of a live audience, and manages to get all of the behind the scenes nitty gritty tidbits that hip hop nerds like us eat up.

Here, he speaks with Q-Tip about how Busta Rhymes almost became a member of A Tribe Called Quest:

Sad news...

This event revolves around an era of rap that we refuse to let be forgotten....

One of those early 90's soldiers passed away today.

RIP Apache.

So here's a little mini Weekend at Diggedy's....

My favorite Apache song:

"Hey Girl" -

Dope ass Large Professor beat....


Third & Final Judge Announcement!

We are extremely pleased to announce that our third and final judge for the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship is HOT 97's PETER ROSENBERG!

In the nearly 2 years that he has been on New York’s Hot 97, Peter Rosenberg has made an indelible mark on New York radio and the global hip hop landscape.  His voice can be heard every weekday morning on Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg, a morning show that is revolutionizing urban radio, and every Sunday night on Real Late with Peter Rosenberg.  His persona on both of these shows, characterized by his quirky and unique spin on hip hop culture and New York life has made him a fixture on the hip hop scene.  But what has endeared him to people most has been his undying passion for everything he covers, whether it’s hip hop, sports, professional wrestling, comedy, politics or entertainment.  And that passion isn’t only heard on the radio.  Peter’s brand is global because of his strong presence in the blogosphere and on YouTube which he began building even before he was on Hot 97.

And let's not forget too... Peter isn't entirely new to HHK. Remember this??

So, along with legendary emcee's BIG DADDY KANE and BUCKSHOT, we complete the trio of judges!

Take notice, the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship is 7 days away!!!! Ohhhhh shhheeeeeeiiiiiitt!!!!

Long Live the Kane

We think Big Daddy Kane is one of the best to ever do it. We couldn't be more thrilled to have him as one of our three judges for the Hip Hop Karaoke Championship. Check out this CLASSIC Kane moment to see why nobody will ever do it like Kane does it...

Meet Thomas

better late than never, right?

Go All Out

As you know, legendary Duck Down emcee BUCKSHOT, is one of our three judges for the Hip Hop Karaoke Championship. One of our favorite Buck moments over the last couple years has got to be this video for "Go All Out" featuring Charlie Murphy. A must watch!

Here's Santiago with his guest spot on the HHK blog...

HHK as a Vehicle to Discover Unsigned Rappers?

In the world of vocalists / singers, the way to introduce the public to unsigned recording artists is through performances of recognized material.  For example, American Idol, P Diddy’s Star Maker, and X-Factor all revolve around vocalists performing songs of well-established artists whose material is known to the public.  It is an artist’s mastery of existing material that often endears them to the masses (think Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Aretha Franklin).   If unsigned vocalists are successful in resonating with audiences by virtue of their unique renditions of cover songs, then they are given the opportunity to go on to impress the public with their own original material.  But this is only after having proven themselves with the classics.

While covering vocal tracks by singers is standard industry practice, there is yet to be widespread acceptance of new hip-hop artists / MCs / rappers gaining respect and notoriety for performing classic hip-hop songs as a way to gain introduction into the music industry.  This dynamic is likely because the art of rhyming is based on individual persona and, unlike singers, the success of a rapper often hinges on personal background / life story.  In the traditional sense, covering another rapper’s lyrics is considered “biting”, about the lowest form of expropriation in the culture of hip-hop (exceptions are made if established rappers cover well-known songs, like on the VH1 Hip-Hop honors).  One of the most important characteristics of a successful MC, particularly during the Golden Age, was a unique, idiosyncratic style and form of expression.  Thus, the thought of a new hip-hop artist covering another rapper’s lyrics to gain respect and admiration was not even in consideration. 

But now, thirty-six years into the creation of hip-hop music, there are songs that are considered incontrovertible classics that rank in the same field as songs by the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, or Marvin Gaye.  These songs have stood the test of time.  From Rakim to Run DMC, A Tribe Called Quest to Mobb Deep, Biggie Smalls to Pharcyde, many rap songs have become to rappers what Beethoven symphonies have become to pianists: indispensable material that must be learned and mastered.  As time progresses, I wonder whether the rap industry might begin to mirror the R&B/vocalist industry and demand that unsigned talent demonstrate a command of classic material in order to be taken seriously.  And if that ever comes to pass, isn’t it conceivable that HHK could become a vehicle to discover unsigned rappers?

Granted, just because a performer can nail down a classic hip-hop song doesn’t necessarily make them an MC or lyricist capable of writing their own rhymes, freestyling, or expressing a relevant and creative viewpoint.  But, on the flipside, if you can’t hold down the classics, then your skills as a true MC must be called into question.  If, as an aspiring rapper, you cannot captivate an audience with a song that everybody already knows, what chance do you have to impress with your original material? 

While longstanding Hip-Hop events such as “Lyricist Lounge,” “End of the Weak”, “Show and Prove” and “Faces in the Crowd” – all of which are unsigned artist showcases based in NYC through which rappers develop their style and break into the competitive New York music industry – continue to draw crowds, none of these events currently attract as large or as enthusiastic crowds as HHK.  Certainly, none of these unsigned artist showcases could sell out a venue like Irving Plaza.  What this says to me is this:  hip-hop audiences in NYC prefer to see unsigned rappers perform recognized material.  And as a hip-hop fan, once I see a performer like RDJ, Keith, Chef or Damali tear down a classic, I can’t help but imagine what their original material might be like . . . 

[Footnote: At my age, I don’t view HHK as a vehicle to get a record deal, it’s more about living out a fantasy of what it would be like to have a record deal.  :) My above meditation on HHK’s potential impact on aspiring rappers is really more applicable to the under 25 set - and I think we have a few in the finals, so A&Rs take note]

We couldn't agree more...

Odds are that if you are reading this blog post your life is pretty good.  Obviously there are rough patches, which by no means do I intend to belittle, but at the end of the day even our shittiest days are better than many people's best days.

The words TRAGEDY and VICTIM are used way too often.  This is not one of those times.  Do something to help the people of Haiti.

If compassion alone is not enough to get you there, draw upon fear.  A 5.5 magnitude earthquake hit New York City in 1884.

Each of us hangs from a thread.

Guest Blogger: Dashaun


Another great guest blog post for ya'll. It's Dashaun from Brooklyn, reporting on some of his favorite gaming memories... take it away Dashaun:

Once upon a time there was a game called Donkey Kong. Donkey Kong was the pack in game for a home console system called the ColecoVision. This system was the first one I ever owned and it was Coleco's answer to the Atari 2600. From the moment I held that joystick in my hand I knew I would never be the same (pause).

From there I moved on to having an NES, a SNES, N64, Playstation and a number of other systems. I was also that guy in the arcades with not many quarters in my pockets but games on my mind. I'd like to go through two of my favorite games from the NES era of gaming. Some of these you probably know while others you may have never heard of.

Game #1
This was a sort of adventure/RPG light game. I got this game on a humble one year from my father. I'm glad he copped it because it became one of my favorites on the Nintendo. You are this sorcerer who has to save a princess by assembling a broken staff. As you journey your map gets bigger an you have these magic potions to help you. The game play is addictive.

Game #2
Flying Warriors
Growing up my mother wouldn't allow me to trade games with my friends. So like any other normal kid I did it on the sneak. One game I borrowed was called Flying Warriors. This martial arts game was so on point. It's a shame NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT IT!

Game #3
Ninja Gaiden
Ahhh I remember playing this game so much as a kid. I mean who didn't want to be a ninja? This was one of the first games I played that had cut scenes and dialogue. I loved it.

Game #4
Double Dribble
I'll never forget those infamous words "DOUBLE DRIBBLE". From the moment I heard that I knew it was on! From the first ever slow motion cut away dunks to real calls in a basketball game, Double Dribble was a gem. I would always play with Chicago even though there was no MJ in the game (or any other player names for that matter). Double Dribble is an NES classic.

Game #5
Super Mario Bros. 3
Possibly the greatest video game ever created SMB3 caused a shift in platform games. From the moment I got my first Raccoon leaf I knew my life would never be the same. From being able to use whistles to fly through the game in about an hour's time, to slugging it out through 8 fully fleshed-out worlds SMB3 was very complex. I loved the water world where you get to use the frog suit. To this day I can turn this game on and completely enjoy it. A Nintendo legend.

Guest Blogger: Doni D

Yet another guest blog spot! Doni D in the place to be is feelin' good these days. Check it out...

I feel good that…

I feel good that Raekwon’s-Only Built for Cuban Linx II did so well with the critics (Bagging Crack is amazing and to have Dilla on it. Whew.)

I feel good that Danilo Gallinari might turn into the player the Knicks have not had in a long time, a dude who can hit a jump shot, play hard and go to the basket) With Wilson Chandler on the other side, somethings has got to happen for the Knicks.

I feel good that it’s 2010 and I’m not doing 2009 s*it. (Literally in so many facets)

I feel good that Toronto trip number 2 went of without a hitch. The next one will be even bigger (That’s right, we’re chipping in for a school bus. Kinda like the movie Bachelor party minus the donkey)

I feel good Jay Electronica is getting shine. (You can’t even compare dude to past emcees, he’s his own man)

I feel good that I finally get the effect that insulin has on the body when it comes to weight gain and loss. I no longer have to rack my brains. I just have to eat to the gram from now on.

I feel like on the low, I’m about to blow. (Pause) Feeling like 50 right after Wanksta dropped, just before he signed to Shady/Aftermath)

I feel good because I know the Bar-b-cue is coming back at the stable this summer. (Murray get the Guinness and Grey Goose)

I feel good that this can possibly be the greatest year in mankind since we all have the potential to make it that.

What do you feel good about today? Feel free to add on.

Guest Blogger: RDJ

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome our next guest blogger, RDJ!
Here he gets seriously analytical about some of his favorite lines in Hip Hop...

Thanks for the invite and the intro, fellas. Always a pleasure to sit in the blogger’s chair and drop some RDJewels for the Hip Hop Karaoke constituency.

I’m not just a hip hop enthusiast and karaokeologist: I’m also a lyricist (and composer,) mostly in musical theatre songwriting. So I value the ability to distill complex thoughts down into a tight little verbal nugget that conveys a whole world of character, narrative, emotion, and point of view. That’s a tall order. To be able to do that within the constraints of meter and rhyme is even more of a challenge. That’s just as true for Nas as it is/was for Bob Dylan or Joni Mitchell or Stephen Sondheim or Oscar Hammerstein. For me, hip hop is definitely about having a good time, about social commentary, and about moving the crowd – but what keeps me coming back is the darts, the jewels, the lyrical swords (make sure you pronounce the ‘w’ in ‘swords’.)

So here, in no particular order, are some of the lyrics that still make me either smile with amusement or shake my head in amazement, no matter how many times I hear them. Obviously it’s tough if not impossible to separate out the actual writing from the delivery on a lot of these, but what I find amazing is the power, and ingenuity of the minds behind the voices.

Again, no particular order, and this list is FAR from complete.

1) “So I switched my motto /
‘stead of sayin’ ‘fuck tomorrow’ /
That buck that bought a bottle
Coulda struck the lotto”
(Nas, “Life’s A Bitch”)

“Life’s A Bitch” is an amazing song, with both AZ and Nas turning in flawless verses over a stunning beat – not to mention some elegant and bittersweet trumpet playing by Nas’ dad Olu Dara on the coda. It combines many different emotions, from celebrating the improbable “blessing” of reaching one’s 20th birthday, to fierce self-reliance and determination, to the despair and resignation of the chorus. Overall I find it to be an uplifting song, despite the title and the hook, maybe because of that very ambivalence: it affirms the self’s will to live amid a culture of death. This lyric from Nas captures that perfectly. You know he’s a young guy, but he sounds worldly wise, even philosophical. But what elevates it from a merely great lyric to a stunning lyric is the poetry of it. It SOUNDS so good coming out of his mouth, with all the internal rhymes and repeated consonants. It’s a complicated thought, delivered with crystal clarity in a very short span of time. That’s lyricism right there.

2) “Picture Phife losing a battle
Come on, get off it /
Put down the microphone, son,
Surrender, forfeit /
Did I hear something ‘bout a crew?
What they wanna do? /
You better call Mr. Babyface so he can bring out the cool in you /
Or it’ll be a sad love song being sung by Toni Braxton /
And I’ll dissect you like a fraction”
(Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest, “God Lives Through”)

Phife is one of the most likeable (and underrated) MCs of all time. It’s the last song on an incredible album, and it has the feeling of being a bonus track (was it?) – it’s loose and relaxed and even samples an earlier song from the same record. I may catch wreck for saying this, but I think ‘Midnight Marauders’ is Phife’s album. Not that Q-Tip isn’t in full effect throughout (excluding his fast-forwardable solo track “Midnight”), but just as Tipster was in the lead on the first two Tribe albums, I feel like Phife comes through as the group’s hungriest and most consistently on-point member on this one, on which he also boasts that he “might be three albums deep but I don’t wanna go pop”. Every single one of the Five Foot Assassin’s lyrics on ‘MM’ shimmers with gusto, humor, and a very endearing cleverness. While Tip is letting off some of his most ‘Abstract’ and off-the-cuff rhymes to date, the Phifer is both ferocious and funny. Here, on the final track, he just lets loose with a string of lines that are pure wit and bravado and totally appealing. Never mind the fact that you don’t exactly “dissect” fractions: Malik’s having fun with language and pop culture here in a way that few MCs, short or tall, can match.

3) “You could never capture the Method Man's stature
For rhyme and for rapture,
Got n****z resigning to master my style /
Never! I put the fucking ‘buck’ in the ‘wild’ kid, I'm terror
Razor sharp, I sever
The head from the shoulders, I'm better
Than my compeda’ /
You mean competitor? Whateva!
Let's get together!”
(Method Man of Wu-Tang Clan, “Shame On A N****”

When I first heard “Enter The 36 Chambers”, it was this second track that hooked me. “Bring The Ruckus” was so slow and grimy, full of obscure references (by comparison to anything I’d heard before) that I didn’t quite know what to make of it. But when I heard Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Method Man set it off on “Shame On A N****” I heard a kind of lyrical playfulness that blew my mind, and I knew then that I was listening to a bunch of unusual cats with unusual skills. Meth was like a combination class clown and total genius in this era. His verse is both intimidating and goofy, a balance I always find compelling. And his carefree, almost free-associative flow and delivery masks the extreme care he puts into his rhyme construction. “I’m better / Than my compeda’ / You mean competitor? Whateva” is just a completely inspired piece of word mangling. And really, this verse and this song are just the tip of the iceberg. Entire college poetry courses could be taught on the lyrical exploits of the Clan. Speaking of which:

4) “N****s wanna talk shit? I pop clips.
Bitch: I put my dick on ya lips.”
(U-God of Wu-Tang Clan, “Protect Ya Neck (The Jump-Off”))

The Clan’s most overlooked member spit this crudely straightforward little couplet on their much-slept-on 2000 album “The W”. I love U-Godzilla, for all his tribulations. His voice usually makes his verses worth the price of admission, and he just has this hilarious mix of being totally blunt and completely indecipherable. This is him in one of his blunter moments. Hell, it’s not Shakespeare, and generally I’m not a big fan of dick-on-bitch-lips threats, but this line tickles me every time. It also helps that it comes right after a rapid-fire, impenetrably dense Ghostface verse, and that RZA smartly changes the beat up right as the Golden Armed one gets started. So it’s like everything stops, and your ears stand up to hear what he’s going to say – and then it’s “put my dick on ya lips.” (And let’s face it: “I put my dick on ya lips” is a much more gentle image than “I stick my dick in ya mouth.” It’s sort of a gentle placing of the dick rather than anything forcible. I mean, this IS coming from the guy who rapped “My orchestra graceful, music ballerinas.” He’s a sensitive swordsman.)

5) “Kiss the pyramid, experiment with high explosive /
I lick shots at Jesus, slap-box with Joseph”
(Ghostface Killah, “Daytona 500”)

I mean, come on. What’s Ghost talking about? Who cares? This dude is a lyrical shape-shifter: he takes on the proportions of whatever he’s spitting. So in this case, he becomes a kind of Biblical super-antihero. Not bad.

6) “FUCK being hard, Posdnuos is complicated!”
(Posdnuos of De La Soul, “In The Woods”)

Plug One is one of a kind, and 1993’s “Buhloone Mind State” saw him at his most esoteric. He was pissed off, too, and he’s the kind of rapper who makes the most of feeling backed into a corner. For most of this album he spits lyrics that are heavily coded, but this one’s a clear and simple statement, a repudiation of the gangsta/hood clichés that were encroaching steadily on De La’s brand of middle-class bohemian hip hop at the time.

7) “Now you see that I’m sixty-eight inches above sea level /
Ninety-three million miles above these devils”
(Ladybug Mecca of Digable Planets, “9th Wonder (Blackitolism)”)

I know that Diggedy loves this one. “Blowout Comb” is a classic case of a slept-on brilliant follow up to a good-but-inferior hit record. (Faith No More’s “Angel Dust” is the quintessential rock example, in my mind.) And I just love how Ladybug mixes humble personal details with terrestrial physics and Five-Percent-Nation imagery. One of the sexiest lines in hip hop that isn’t about sex.

8) “A child is born with no state of mind /
Blind to the ways of mankind”
(Melle Mel on “The Message” by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five)

This line starts off the final and most haunting verse in this pioneering social commentary anthem, and it contains so much wisdom. I always realize newly, listening to it, that there’s a faulty assumption in the way we mostly look at poverty and urban squalor and suffering in general – thinking that it has anything to do whatsoever with inherent racial tendencies. (Like there’s now a widespread belief that Native Americans are genetically predisposed towards alcoholism – as if the stress of genocide and dislocation isn’t sufficient to explain it.) We may not THINK we think this way, but if we examine our hidden beliefs, that subtle racism can sometimes be found – it provides a convenient explanation for why certain groups seem to have it so hard. Here Melle Mel reminds us, or me at least, that all children have infinite possibilities – until they get born into our physical world and inherit its cruelty and unjust distribution of opportunities. The rest of the verse is a sad litany of consequences, ending with a grisly suicide in prison. But without this opening line, the whole thing wouldn’t be as tragic, or as profound.

That's all for now. What, do you want more?!!!

See you on the 29th, when I can't wait to hear many more of my favorite lyrics performed by some of my favorite performers. Including me.

Guest Blogger: DAMALI

Over the next few days, look for some of the 12 competitors for the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship to be showing up here as guest bloggers. First up is Damali - one of the two ladies in the final 12. Take it away Damali!

An Entirely New State of Mind
By Damali

It’s a new year and a new decade (arguably...we’ll discuss that later), in a fairly new century. Would it be possible for us, the masses, to adopt new thought patterns?

I mean, I know the majority of the United States is supposedly populated by sheep-like, i’ll-believe-anything-if-it’s-in-the-tabloids, failing-public-school-attending rejects, but but but, there’s hope for everyone, right? Anyone can change, yeah?

What if we didn’t allow record companies to decide for us what music we like and want to hear?

What if young people started regularly attending jazz performances and buying jazz albums?

What if we all stopped automatically believing soundbite-type headlines and think critically about information instead?

What would happen if nobody bought Christmas trees?

What kind of seismic shift would occur if we all stopped caring who The Big Gay Rapper is?

In fact, what if we stopped trying to figure out, or even caring about, who celebrities are having sex with?

What if we stopped buying bottled water and utilized the free-flowing fluoride-packed elixir that comes from our own faucets, that we waste during our 35 minute showers?

What impact would it have if teenagers witnessed adults acting like adults?

What if we allowed love to actually really truly conquer all?

What if we stopped texting and used our phones to CALL people?

What if the “decade” really begins in 2011?

What if I stopped typing now?

Judge Announcement #2!

Ladies and gentlemen,

It's with utmost pride & respect that we, the HHK Crew, announce that none other than
will be one of our three judges at the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship!

Yes, seriously.

We're talking about the author of Set It Off, Warm It Up, Kane, Ain't No Half Steppin... and the list goes on and on. An absolute legend -- and we couldn't be any more pleased to bring him to the HHK grand stage.

So, to recap, so far we've announced BUCKSHOT and BIG DADDY KANE as judges for the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship. That leaves one more slot... and that will be announced shortly.

See you January 29th.

Deeejay Wex.

*edit- And let's not forget, this won't be first time Kane graces the HHK stage. See below for Diggedy's favorite 2 minutes of all time. ;-)
