James Brown needs a cheque. Roots still got it for real.
I needed these songs then, I need them even more now, (not you Joell Ortiz, Jean Grae, and friends…your help is appreciated… but, yes, I am talking to Cam’ron, Plies, Rick Ross, Tony Yayo, and so on).
and the most destructive verses ever packed into a layed back orchestration…
Man – I miss the 90′s… I’m Swayze.
No real news caught my interest today, but I did come across this clip of Big Daddy Kane jackin’ some beats the way he only knows how, only to DROP THE MIC mid-performance!!!
Watch the whole clip, (it happens at 2min 30secs in), and it could possibly be the greatest come back ever.
His entourage don’t seem phased when he drops it, could it be rehearsed? Who cares? This is a 10/10 for showmanship!
Never heard of Big Daddy Kane? Let T.I., Black Thought (of The Roots) and Common give you an intro, alongside The Roots band.
One of my favourite clips of all time from VH1′s Hip-Hop Honours 2005.
