Takin’ Em Back – 10/16

16 10 2009

As I said earlier this week, the filmed titled “Black Dynamite” drops today. I kicked things off with Pam Grier being my Chick of the Week, and today’s throwback video is “Got Your Money” by ODB which features numerous clips from “Dolemite”; one of the best known blaxploitation films. Not only does it fit the blaxploitation theme, the song still sounds dope till this day and the beat is one of Neptunes best. Black Dynamite is in theaters today!

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

Seeing Rae & Ghost do this joint at Rock The Bells last weekend reminded me of how dope this track was. R.I.P. Ol Dirty!
