K.Dot performs his track Untitled 2 on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The jam. Today we have some party up in here sh*t from one of the dopest emcees on the Westcoast, a man that goes by the name of Kam. His first appearance on record was with the song Every Single Weekend from the 1991 Boyz n the Hood soundtrack.
Since then he collaborated with cats like Coolio, Erick Sermon, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, E-40, , MC Ren, C-Bo, DJ Pooh, Tha Eastsidaz, Method Man, KRS-One, Public Enemy… the list goes on. That’s My Ni**a appears on his 2nd album Made In America, released on EastWest Records in ’95.
Produced by the legendary DJ Quik.
Statik KXNG (Statik Selektah & KXNG Crooked) have aligned forces for a new group and self-titled debut collaborative project; that will be released on 2-12-2016.
As the first single, Dead Or In Jail (which was premiered by Complex) and now Everybody Know illustrates, Statik KXNG is a bi-coastal, musical pick and roll, with Crooked playing Magic and Statik playing Bird.
As promised, here’s the first part of the Eighties Edition. This period is a little trickier, as for much of it rap was still a ‘singles’ medium, so many artists never even got to release albums at all, which opens the playing field pretty wide. To keep it manageable, I’ve stuck to crews and soloists that put out at least one LP during their career and excluded b-sides that were tacked onto the CD versions of albums or second pressings (such as Jungle Brothers’ The Promo). I almost feel like doing a compilation of Jive Records Most Disgraceful UK Remixes’ just to shame them, but nobody in their right mind would actually listen to that.
Check out the tracklist after the jump.
Marley and Pete hop on the mic at 5:15 for the first mic break of the show. They mention that Pete had just released the “Main Ingredient” album and had been out on tour. No guests this show. Just straight music with a couple more mic breaks (32:45) (55:45) before both Pete and Marley get into a short freestyle session (56:06).
Recently, Sia took to Twitter to share a snippet of her highly-anticipated collaboration with Kanye West, “Reaper.” Thankfully, the song is now available in its entirety; it will appear on Sia’s new album This is Acting, which is set to arrive on January 29. The track is co-written and co-produced by Kanye; some elements of the instrumental, such as the drums and bass lines, reflect a lot of his earlier sound. Listen to the track above and let us know what you think of it.
Today we have a historic video of 2Pac, chillin’ with his crew, with a 40 in his hand, walkin’ through NYC freestylin’ for ’91, around the time when he was workin’ on his household debut 2pacalypse Now album, and after spittin’ off top of his head he stumbles upon a bootlegger and goes wild over seein’ a copy of Digital Underground tape.
I read a comment somewhere that says – “This video not only shows us a glimpse into the mind of a rapper who had yet to reach stardom, but also acts as a bizarre juxtaposition to today’s music generation, where artists eagerly give away free music with hopes of recognition.”
Makes you wonder…
