RewindWednesdays

Last Thursday, April 25 2013 marked the 18th anniversary of Mobb Deep‘s sophomore album The Infamous, arguably one of Hip-Hop’s most prized possessions. That said, the Takin’ Mines massive thought a track by track review of their Loud debut would be quite fitting for today’s edition of Rewind Wednesdays. Joining us on our review are Robbie from Unkut, and Doug Cohen of Flud Watches.. hit the jump.

 

The Infamous was a soundtrack for a new era of anti-social, hardcore Hip-Hop, driven by Havoc’s accomplished sampling techniques, tight drum programming and bleak moods, and the heartless microphone techniques of Prodigy at his most ruthless. Outstanding assists from Q-Tip, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Nas made it clear that this was “the realness” personified, in terms of cutting edge street music for 1995. -Robbie, Unkut

FridayFlips

Yo it’s about that time, to bring forth the rhythm and the rhyme. Yes, I just quoted Marky Mark, but I’m feeling rather giggity giggity cause it’s Friday.. and you know what that means – it’s another installment of #FridayFlips beeitches. Now although we took a brief hiatus over the past two weeks, we’re back, and we got a real humdinger for ya’. This week, we breakdown Pat Streater‘s use of Ahmad Jamal‘s “The Awakening” on “Visionary Music,” from Manny, featuring J57. The song, which managed to make its rounds on the interweb earlier this week, also borrows the infamous Melvin Bliss “Synthetic Substitution” drum loop, which the homey Nathan S. of Refined Hype breaks down. So without further adieu, hold on to your seats kiddies and hit the jump as we drop some more edutainment on that ass…

 

STREAM: Manny (feat. J57) – “Visionary Music” (prod. by Pat Streater)

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
