Kicking It Old School

Because it's Sunday and I'm feeling lazy*, let's go with a video blog today, shall we?** That was rhetorical, I'm not gonna wait for you to agree or not, I'm afraid, I'm just going to go ahead with the post. Alrighty then.

We've already established that my musical taste is extremely eclectic. I've been listening to a fair few different styles of late but am having a bit of a rediscovered for fondness for hip hop (mainly old school stuff). Yes, I realise that "rediscovering a fondness" isn't a very street way of putting it but I'm going to spare us all the embarrassment of even attempting that. Good, glad we all agree.

Right, let's start with the basics:-

Grandmaster Flash - The Message

And then move things on with a bit of:-

Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock - It Takes Two

Following that up with a slice of:-

Naughty By Nature - O.P.P.

And then finish off with a little bit of this (especially as it has a brilliant Spike Jonze video):-

Pharcyde - Drop

Peace. Out.


* Actually, it's Thursday and my ideas pool is draining fast but you get the idea...

** And for anyone who might be reading this as a Facebook note, I've added the links as well as embedding the vids otherwise you'll just see a big blank space. Yes, I am good like that.

Ok, I'm late, but I did indeed get my jam on!!

I totally, 110% approve. And I'm a big hip hop fan, so it takes a lot for me to approve of other people's taste in hip hop.
I've seen Grandmaster Flash live and it's an experience I'll never forget.

Tabitha - It's never too late to get your jam on, surely?

Anna The Russell - High praise indeed! I can't really claim to be a big hip hop fan but I knows what I likes.

And so humble!
Needless to say, I'm not into HipHop.

Well, I'm more of a rock / indie / 60s soul / 70s funk / randomly odd other stuff fan but I do like the odd bit of hip hop from time to time...

You had me at Grandmaster Flash.

Jerry Maguire would be vastly improved by that being the actual line...
