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...

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.
F Below 60
Nas you up homie!

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

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...

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...

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 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.

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.
