locals only.

Commending those who stayed in their respective hoods. (Well, maybe except Pharcyde. But Hollywood is pretty close to South Central, so whatever.)

There might be some better examples, if so, let me know.

Memphis Bleek - Got My Mind Right

Juvenile - Ha

TI - You Don't Know Me

Cam'ron - Let Me Know

Xzibit - What U See Is What U Get

Hot Boyz - We On Fire

Black Moon - I Got U Opin

Pharcyde - Drop

when guests are boring.

As heard on an Avalanches mix from a few years ago. This one sort of shows a bit of that Manson Family influence that had crept in, at least I think so.

It was on the 1976 album 15 Big Ones.

Also, if anybody has that jam "Matchpoint Of Our Love" off of the aforementioned Avalanches mix, please holler at me, por favor. (wearelouder at msn dot com)

So here goes some psychotic, Rupert Pupkin-style jamming from those kooky Californians:

The Beach Boys - Johnny Carson

pigeon-toed ladies on fordham road.

Quintessential summer jam. With references to "Holla Holla" and "section 8 bitches."

These dudes killed it.

I saw them on Fordham Road once. I think it was a little while after Marlon Brando (one of their members, not the actor) had died. They were (sort of sadly) handing out mixtapes and cd singles (in 98 degree weather). They all had matching shirts on and were schilling their new single in front of the Jimmy Jazz that burned down a few moths ago.

Sporty Thievz curse?

You figure it out.

Sporty Thievz - No Pigeons

in regards to a former fabolous sport.

A couple of realizations/observations that came to me while watching Fabolous, Diddy, and Jagged Edge's contribution to the Barber Shop soundtrack:

-Fab, what the fuck happened? You used to have these types of things on smash! Up until that horrendous showing on Omarion's "Ice Box" remix, I would hear any enjoyable new mid-to high tempo r & b joint (male or female) and think, "If Fab was on that shit, it'd be a monster." Now, I just hope that Kanye, Kellz or Weezy (or if I'm super lucky, Andre 3000) drops by and handles the obligitory r & b cameo duties.

-I still want to be in a worthwhile and long-lasting relationship with the blonde spanish girl with the Knicks throwback on. (Those rollerskates!)

-I still want to be in a worthwhile and long-lasting relationship with Fab's Jordan 7's. Real talk.

-Bandana over fitted never really caught on, eh? I still wonder why.

-DJ Clue has never been cool. A legendary mixtape figure? Yes. A cool guy? Nope. Not remotely.
(For any further evidence, rent Backstage. If you haven't seen it, shame on you anyways. Pre-peak era Hov, DMX in his prime and Amil spottings. As well as Iceberg sweaters before Lot 29 came and tried to slay the game with "Human Crack" Santana. "A!")

-The Vancouver Grizzles jersey that dude from Jagged Edge is worth like, $46 right now. (Always opt for the Aqua!)

-Another thing, where the fuck is Jagged Edge! (That track with Nivea was pure fire.)

-Wait, where the fuck is Nivea? Still sprung off of Weezy? Damn.

-Why would that little tv in the sand be playing Barber Shop? Besides that fact that it could probably only pick up like three local stations, with mad static, why would channel 4 or whatever be playing Barber Shop. That movie is terrible.


-The blue and yellow Rams jerseys were so dope.

-"...word to Big Poppa/I gotcha"

-In case anybody didn't know, Diddy is probably my favorite person ever. I can easily understand how K. West wants to be like him. So do I. I have since I was about 10 or 11. There is nothing sad about that at all.

-But with that said, I know that Biggie was dead and all (and still is), but that painting (airbrush?) looks like one of the ones that you would pick up in front of the movie theater in the Bronx. Go to the theater on 161st and I'm pretty that there are ones with T.I. and Beyonce on them.

-Official throwback count now (2:36 in) stands at 476.

-Stephon! Post-chain snatching. Ugh. Pre-$15 kicks. Honestly, I'd rather get my chain robbed at the stop light than wear those.

-"Cucumber stones." Next. Level. Shit.

-Hey Fab, put your ears in your weird bandana/du-rag hybris please. Thanks.

-Oh! Tom (Cruise) and Penelope (Cruz) reference! Cyeah! (Vanilla Sky was as bad as Barber Shop 2.)

-LOON! (I know people who still want waves like his.)

-There she goes again. With a cute, 60's girl group flip in her hair. Marry me.

-Somehow, I've never tasted Hypnotiq. How is that possible?

-The statement about Fab's Jordan 7's (the white & turquoise ones) holds true for the black & purple ones.

Seger that is.

Killer jams from way back when. "Turn The Page," "Night Moves," "Against The Wind," "We've Got Tonight."

The boy's got hits like Tony Gwyn.

So for your listening pleasure (and trust me, a true pleasure it is) I present to you the epic Bob Seger System masterpiece 2 + 2=?

Just try and not break your neck, ok?

dj kicks.

Stoked face in full effect yet?

It should be. Here goes a mix that I made the other day. It's got a bunch of disco records on it. Pretty much nothing else. The mixing is pretty bad, but considering that it's all digital (but not Ableton) I guess that it's passable.

The Midnight Starr jam is an edit that I did last minute. So there.


11 Tears 4 Fears:

1. Midnight Starr - Midas Touch (Get Murked Bass Edit)

2. Carmen - Throw Down

3. Baby's Gang - Challenger

4. Knight Action - Single Girl

5. Celi Bee & The Buzzy Bunch - Superman

6. Giorgio Moroder - I Wanna Funk With You Tonight

7. Shalamar - Right In The Socket

8. Ayx - Fantasy Rock

9. Celestial Choir - Stand On The Word (Larry Levan Remix)
