The Wascals - Class Clown

Heres another banger from my childhood. I know they sounded like Hiero but you cant deny that they were ripping that mic.

The Pharcyde - Drop

Lets kick it to the west. This was a good way to make a cheap video look good. CREATIVITY PEOPLEEEE... It doesn't take a lot of money to kill, it just takes a mind willing to be different. The Pharcyde are like the abstract artist of the left coast. The Pharcyde busted on to the scene in 1991 with their Delicious Vinyl release "Ya Momma". Alot of people don't really remember it, but Dilla used to be the groups dj...

Nas- (Untitled)

Im about to lace you with the realist rating system of all times. The rating system I have created is called "Play or Skip". This system is based off of my initial reactions to the tracks that I am reviewing. After I go through my listening I tally up all my Plays and Skips and come up with a percentage. Once I get my percentage I give the artist a letter grade. The numbers dont lie! The grading scale is as follows.

A+ 97-100
A 93-96
A- 90-92
B+ 87-89
B 83-86
B- 80-82
C+ 77-79
C 73-76
C- 70-72
D+ 67-69
D 63-66
D- 60-62
F Below 60

Nas you up homie!

British Knights Shoe Commercial - 1990

And now a word from our sponsor.

Leaders Of The New School - Case Of The P.T.A.

I spent enough time in detention to appreciate this song. My teachers were haters. Thats cool though, that gave me plenty of time to write my rhymes and hone my skills. LONS which consisted of Busta Rhymes, Charlie Brown & Dinco D came on the scene in 90' with their first release "Mt. Airy Groove". Soon after they dropped that they hooked up with Native Tongues Posse witch included the JB's, De La, Tribe and Black Sheep. Its crazy but I remember when Charlie Brown left the group on air when they were on Yo! Mtv Raps. Busta looked like he wanted to rub Charlie Browns face across a brick wall. lol

Everything Remains Raw - Busta Rhymes AKA Shanon Dennis

This song just makes you wanna punch whoever sitting next to you in the face!

Rampage-Wild For Da night

This song was a smokey suv chillin with your fam outside the club classic. Rampage might not have been the best MC of all times but he killed on this one. Busta came through to lend some energy on the track as well. Rampages first big exposure in hip hop was on the "Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)". He popped on the scene in 92'. The last time we seen him was on the "Touch It (Remix)" with Busta Rhymes.

Alkaholiks- Hip Hop Drunkies

Dope low key joint done with the late O.D.B.

Tha Alkaholiks - Mary Jane

Yeah! You know I had to show love to the Liks, its only right. The Alkaholiks are just a good group, their styles feed off of each other. They've been around since like 92' appearing on King Tee's "The Trifilin Album". Tash is originally from Columbus, OH (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, thats right). He decided to move out to the left coast along with E Swift and get some money, and thats when they met up with J Ro. The rest is history...

Friday, July 11, 2008


Yeah so I was outside AT&T at 4:30 this morning waiting on this new Apple IPhone 3G like a straight hype. The store had 20 phones and I was #15 in line (lucky there was a 1 phone per person limit). I gotta say im pleased with my purchase, the phone is ill. The touch screen keyboard is gonna take a little getting used to but thats nothing. I was salty that it took so long to activate, but after it connected it was love again. If you handle alot of business over the phone you might want to check this one out...

1978 - Whiz Kids shoe commercial - Sneakers

And now a word from our sponsor


I used to like this video because people were flying through the air, getting yapped up. Im not really a fan of Sadat X, but I can listen to him on this song.

Common Sense - Soul By The Pound (Remix)

"I got more hoe hoe hoes than the jolly green giant". This is the first Common video I saw, I just remember his style being extra abstract.

Common - I Used To Love H.E.R.

Too many people think that Common Sense came out on Like Water For Chocolate, but his history is way more in-depth. Common busted onto the scene in about 92' with the album "Can I Borrow A Dollar?". In this video mad people thought Common was actually telling a story about a woman, which makes it pivotal in the evolution of hip hop. If you don't pay attention to the words you miss the point, thats why this video was important. This song made people listen...

King Tee - Dippin

King Tee is one of the west most slept on pioneers. His name will arise if you speak amongst those who know a thing or two about hip hop, but if you hang around lames you'll remain in the darkness. This was some 94' fire. Oh yeah! King Tee is the one who brought the world the Alkaholiks.

Crips - Slob 187

Maaaaaaannnn. This joint is crazy.

Bloods -Piru Love

This joint reminds me of growing up when sets owned Columbus (B's & C's). I know this is a Cali. hit but the C.O. was representing set love to the fullest. And you cant deny the smoothness of the computer love sample.

MC Ren- Same Ol'

You know I had to kick it to the west and show some love. I used to feel real gangsta when this song came on, lol. This is MC Ren of N.W.A., in my opinion one of the groups best spittaz.

Air Jordan I commercial - Banned

And now a message from our sponsor.

Yo! SS Tv Raps

Nas - Halftime

This was the first video I remember seeing by Nas.

Nas - It Ain't Hard To Tell

Even though this wasn't Nas's first video it was in essence when he was introduced to the world. "I leave em froze like heroin in ya nose" that was my line, I probably ganked it once or twice in a rhyme back in the day.

Marvin Gaye sings American National Anthem

Happy July 4th. Im not the most patriotic person in the world, but I do respect people who die for a cause. I know this is Yo! SS Tv Raps but im going to hit you with with some R & B this time. If your going to sing the national anthem you gotta make it yours, and in my opinion no one made it theirs like Marvin Gaye. So hear you go.

M.O.P. - How About Some Hardcore

The hill thats real. They dropped this single shortly after Big Mal passed. I first saw this video during the credits on House Party 3.

M.O.P. - Handle ur Bizness

Mash Out Posse. This is one of the most thorough groups in hip hop. Billy Danzenie and Lil' Fame have been holding it down since 93'. I wanna know how physical these kids are? They're driving down the street in brownsville in a damn tank. lol

Mood- Hustle On The Side

Heres a little bit of info. Hi Tek was Moods DJ and he used to make their beats. 95' hot shit.

Mood - Karma

Mood had the album Doom back in the days I always thought that was clever. This was ill because because they where from a city around the way. They were from Cincinnati. Even though they reminded me of the WU they still had ill cuts.
