Takin’ Em Back – 7/10

10 07 2009

Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Brooklyn Zoo

My throwback joint of the day comes from the late Ol Dirty Bastard with the underground classic, “Brooklyn Zoo”. The joint was also sampled on Alicia Keys’ “Girlfriend” and Ghostface used vocals from this track on “9 Milli Brothers” off his Fishscale album.
Back in ’95, Dirt Mcgirt emerged from the Wu-Tang Clan with a raw, unique yet gritty character transcending into grimey New York hip hop. His debut album, Return to the 36 Chambers was well received by critics and fans, and even went platinum. We need more standout artists like this today.
R.I.P. Ol’ Dirty Bastard

Takin’ Em Back 7/3

Missy Elliot – I Cant Stand the Rain
Vodpod videos no longer available.

In the mid 90’s, Missy Elliott hit the scene setting herself aside from many rap artists with her unique rap style. Her debut video, “I Can’t Stand the Rain” was original, creative, and caught the game off guard. The video had numerous cameo’s and featured Missy rapping in what looks like an inflated trash bag. As time went on, the video remained outstanding and is one of Hype Williams best videos to date. On a sidenote, where has Missy been? She definitely needs to link up with Timbo again.
