the final Infinite Hip Hop Show! (29.12.13)

After just over 2 years on Kane FM, I've decided to take a break from doing my fortnightly show. For the last one I thought I'd base it around the 'Rap Anniversary' post below and choose one track from each year since 1987 (my 'day one') up to 2013. A few big names didnt make the cut but I tried to rep for as many of my favourite songs/albums/rappers/producers as possible.

My Rap Anniversary: Top 20 Songs Of All Time

Christmas Day 1987 marks the day I was properly introduced to Rap when I was given the tape above as a present with a new Walkman. The Coldcut remix of 'Paid In Full' was included on the B-side of tape 1 and immediately caught my imagination. Admittedly it was more Coldcut's weird samples and scratching than an appreciation of Rakim's flow but I was only 9 years old.
Anyway, with that in mind and inspired by Tha Gawd's recent post (and some of the lists in the comments) I thought I'd drop my all time Top 20.
Choosing tunes tracks that make the cut was easy, narrowing it down and bumping them again to get it down to 20 was the tricky part. The only criteria was one track per artist.

Eric B & Rakim 'Move The Crowd' (1987)
Public Enemy ‘Welcome To The Terrordome’ (1990)
Ice T ‘New Jack Hustler’ (1991)
Ice Cube ‘My Summer Vacation’ (1991)
Main Source ‘Just Hangin Out’ (1991)
Pete Rock & CL Smooth ‘T.R.O.Y’ (1992)
Dr Dre ‘Let Me Ride’ (1992)
A Tribe Called Quest ‘Lyrics To Go’ (1993)
Nas ‘Memory Lane’ (1994)
Black Moon ‘Buck Em Down’ remix (1994)
Gang Starr ‘Mass Appeal’ (1994)
Raekwon & Ghostface ‘Rainy Dayz’ (1995)
Mobb Deep ‘Still Shinin’ (1995)
Diplomats ‘I Really Mean It’ (2003)
Jay Electronica ‘Exhibit C’ (2009)
Curren$y ft Freddie Gibbs ‘Scottie Pippen’ (2011) 

It's probably fair to say half the list would change if I did it again next week. I expected there to be more from the 00s as thats what I listen to most but when they were stacked against each other the 90s won the day. Feel free to hit the comments section and tell me why I should've gone with Midnight over Lyrics To Go or whatever.

Tracks that narrowily missed the cut: Made You Look, Still Tippin, Verbal Intercourse, On The Real, Uptown Anthem, My Melody, CREAM, Boyz N The Hood, The Roc (Just Fire), Say No Go, Mind Playing Tricks, 50 Bars, Nuthin But A G Thang, Lethal Weapon, Tonights Da Night, I Got Cha Opin (remix), Supastar, We Gonna Make It...a lot basically.

Happy Christmas!

DJ Premier on Future Flavas (2003)

Another one out of the Junior Pepaseed collection (for which we should all be very grateful). 60 minutes of Primo on Marley Marl's Future Flavas show back in 2003 when it was broadcast on 66Raw, which I think was an online or satellite station. The tracklist tells you all need to know...

The Infinite Hip Hop Show (15.12.13)

My show from this past Sunday. I had fun with this one and it went down well. Kicking off with 30 minutes of certified bangers seemed to do the trick.

After 2 years, I've decided to take a break from the radio so Sunday 29th December will be my last show for now.

Saturday 14 December 2013

Mister Cee - Forget About It (1999)

Last week I was lucky enough to pick up a batch of tapes from Junior Pepaseed. There was a lot of treats in there but first up is this dope Mister Cee tape from 1999. Highlights include some hard to find Mobb Deep and Nas tracks, early 50 Cent, Slick Rick, Cam'ron...pretty much all bangers really.

Tagged on at the very end of side b is only the second sighting of a Rev Run & Big Kap song that I heard once on Westwood and haven't seen since. It's not a classic by any means but its always been something of a curiosity.
Also featured is 'Street Dynasty' by Menaka, which I really like. Never heard of him before but if anyone can hook me up a decent quality version of that or any of his other stuff it'd be appreciated.

Sunday 8 December 2013

Method Man & Redman - Wake Up Show freestyle (1994)

There's been a few lengthy Red & Meth freestyle sessions from back in the day that have found their way onto the net over the last few years. Here, the duo go in for 25 minutes on Sway & Tech's Wake Up Show in '94...


Friday 6 December 2013

Kay Slay - Regulators pt 5 (2002)

I don't have the cover for this and the one I found online is hella blurry, but its a Kay Slay mix from 2002 so you can probably guess what it's about. There's a coupla unreleased joints by Cardan featuring Huddy & Meeno (so basically Harlem World) and Shyne. There's also freestyles from all the usual suspects, as well as Freeway's 'What We Do' which never gets old. It's always nice hearing a classic in it's initial "Brand New Exclusive!" form.


A word of warning: the CD kicks off with 2 radio interviews. One with Irv Gotti and one with DMX, centered around the rivalry between X and Ja Rule. Both are about 10 minutes long, but that's what happened before YouTube came along. The DMX one is worth a listen, the Irv one not so much unless you're interested in both sides of a beef that never really amounted to much.

Sunday 1 December 2013

DJ Clue & DJ Envy
Desert Storm mixtape Vol. 4 (2002)

Early 00s NYC mixtapes always seem to go down well around here so you go...

Highlights include a decent pre-Aftermath 50 Cent track ('Elementary') that I'd completely forgotten about, and what I think is an unreleased Shyne track that sounds like was produced by The Neptunes.
I'm a big fan of this era as it was the time of what I'd refer to as the Credible Club Banga - songs that worked on the dancefloor without crossing the line into being corny or outright pop. As I was playing out regularly around that time that was something of a godsend, so big up to Pharrell, Timbaland, Swizz and the rest of 'em for that. It was also a time when you could still put tracks from a new Large Professor album next to songs by Big Tymers and Angie Martinez and no-one would bat an eyelid. Can it be that it was all so simple then..?

One of out the pile Tobes gave me nearly a year ago that had slipped through the net. 90 minutes of the Chocolate Boy Wonder on the legendary In Control show from 1989.

Jim Sharp - Midnight Marauders Revisited EP

"On November 9th 1993 A Tribe Called Quest's 'Midnight Marauders' dropped. ATCQ was (and still is) my favourite rap group and listening to Marauders now, it seems incredible how it's endured the test of time. With the advancement of technology it has been possible to attain previously unreleased vocals and with this in mind I started to rebuild tracks from Marauders from their original samples. (it's important to note that technology has only moved so far and the majority of vocals were impossible to get) I took a lot of time to imagine how Q-tip would have captured the samples, probably using a turntable and an MPC. Consciously not using pitch correct, sampling one side of the audio and bouncing it to stereo and continually trying to get the right filter, echo, pitch and sound from the original sample. I also re-imagined big sections of tracks paying homage to some of my favourite producers such as Premier, DJ Shadow, 9th Wonder and Large Professor. I thought about what it would have been like to have some legends of the game such as Biggie, Nas and Biz Markie dropping guest verses next to Tip and Phife. I completely understand how dear Tribe fans hold Marauders and it was important to me that it had a fresh take but stayed true to the original ethos. This was a labour of love and I hope people dig it for what it is"

Rap Thangs That Shoulda Done Happened #3

#1 Ice T shoulda done embraced G-Funk. I'd been a huge fan since 'Power' dropped in '88 but 1993's 'Home Invasion' remains one of the most disappointing purchases of my youth. In the aftermath of the LA riots and the Cop Killer controversy I'm sure I wasn't alone in expecting a big return from Tracey. Ice Cube and Dr Dre had set the standard and upped the ante for West Coast rap albums in the early 90s but  Home Invasion delivered some distinctly unremarkable beats and contrived shock tactics that fell well short of the classic status of his previous 3 LPs. One thing that would've improved things significantly is some nice sleazy G-Funk synths to underpin his rhymes. Ice dropping one of his classic storytelling joints over something like 'Black Superman' or 'Thuggish Ruggish Bone' would've been a nice send-off before he departed for Hollywood (we'll just pretend that 'Return Of The Real' doesn't exist).

#2 On a 'Home Invasion' related note, Jay Z shoulda done got Ice T on a '99 Problems' remix, or at least shouted him out on the original.

#3 A 'Superthug' remix. For the record, I'm not really saying this shoulda done happened, more that I'm suprised it didn't, given the late 90s/early 00s trend for all-star versions of big singles. An ideal line-up on the remix could've featured MOP, Big Pun and Beanie Sigel. A more realistic version would probably have included Busta Rhymes and DMX. Still, we had Reservoir Dogs, Banned From TV and John Blaze that year so there's always that.

Royal Flush 'Iced Down Medallions'
(DJ Georoc blend - Mike B 2013 Remake)

Dope blend courtesy of Mike B

"DJ Geo Roc's Queens get The Money is one of my all time favorite mixtapes and is where this blend originates. Unfortuantely, it was only ever available on cassette and the sound quality wasn't that great. I think about this particular blend all the time, and it was perfect. However, I decided to remake it, to nearly exactly the same specs as GEOROC's orginal, for home listening and club play. I went as far as finding each 12" and trying to pitch the tracks the same as on the mixtape"


Thursday 24 October 2013

DJ Jay Ski - Volume 23 (1997)

This is the last of the Jay Ski tapes I have and its probably my favourite of the bunch. No cover or tracklist but Cru, Mobb Deep, Mase, The Beatnuts, Biggie and Jungle Brothers all feature...


The current plan for the blog is to make it to 600 posts by the end of the year and then it's a wrap.That's 33 posts between now and 31st December. I've shared most of what I have over the last few years but hopefully I'll be able to pull a few things out of the bag between now and then.

Hard Drive Clearout

A few bits that I've found on other sites over the years that you might've missed (and the links are probably dead now anyway), things I ripped and never got round to uploading,  joints that don't really warrant their own post...

 Ice T, King Tee & Bango freestyle (Capital Rap Show 1989)
courtesy of  Irish Craig  (I think)

 Rakim acapella freestyle (early 90s ?)
no info on this and its only about 25 seconds long but still...

Main Source 'Looking At The Front Door' (alternative/demo version)
I think I got this from unkut.com a few years ago

Big L - Pre Game freestyle (1999)
Lamont over the Sauce Money banger

Children of The Corn - American Dream (alternative version)
this version appeared on a DJ S&S mixtape and features a slightly different Big L verse to the one that appears on the promo 12"

 OC - DJ Camillo freestyle (1998)
Nice OC freestyle off a Camillo mixtape. Pretty sure I got this one from Roy Johnson .

Saturday 19 October 2013

Vinyl Reanimators remixes 12" (1997)

All the Vinyl Reanimators remixes are worth investigating. Here's a 12" they dropped in late 96/early 97 with their takes on 'Drop A Gem On Em', 'Daytona 500' and 'Ya Playin Yaself'. Instrumentals included.

Thursday 10 October 2013

Ghetto Jams: Urban Series 12" (1999)

Unofficial mash-up blend remix tings here. I posted the Common Sense one on its own ages ago but as I'm currently ripping a load of vinyl (before I get rid of it) I thought I'd share the rest. There's some decent stuff on here. Jay Z over a Beatnuts instrumental works well, as does 'Holla Holla' over the 'California Love' beat. The R&B joints aren't too bad either but even after all this time Fatman Scoop has rendered that Faith Evans vocal unlistenable to me.


The aforementioned vinyl ripping is partly the reason for the lack of regular updates. I did contemplate stopping the blog completely but I'll try and stay on it for now and see how things pan out. There's always a chance I might come up with some new tapes or unreleased shit for you (although the chances are slim with the way London's 2nd hand record shops are these days).

Audio Two 'Top Billin' Supa Blends remix (1998)

Here's something I picked up on an otherwise unremarkable party breaks 12" a few months ago. Milk's legendary vocal is blended with the 'Phone Tap' and 'One More Chance' instrumentals.

It sounds like a strange combination but as DJ 7L mentioned in an interview for this very blog, tracks like 'Top Billin' were still getting played in the clubs in the mid-to-late 90s, 10 years or so after they first dropped and this works pretty well.

Skillz - Rawkus promo EP (2002)

The career of (Mad) Skillz has been a strange one. After a promising debut in '95 he got lost in the shuffle in the late 90s, only to re-emerge at a time when fellow Virginians Timbaland and Pharrell were running the clubs and radio. Collaborations followed and Skillz bagged himself a deal with Rawkus, yet somehow despite having the 2 biggest producers in the game on board, he failed to blow. Rawkus disappeared not long after and aside from a couple of 12"s, all that was left to show for it were the tracks on this promo EP. A mix of freestyles over Neptunes beats and some original tracks.


Some of them eventually got an official release a few years later on Skillz' 'Confessions Of A Ghostwriter' album but the moment had passed and he's since carved out a career with his regular end of year 'Rap Up' and touring as Jazzy Jeff's hypeman. So in comparison to alot of his 90s indie contempories he ain't done too bad I suppose.
I've got a few other loose Skillz freestyles from this era that I can zip up if anyone wants 'em.

I'll try and get back to posting more frequently but can't make any promises. I'm off up t'radio in a bit for tonight's Infinite Hip Hop Show,  9-11pm on Kane FM. Special guest mix by Jorun Bombay. Tune in if you can.

Sparkle Motion 'Night Hype' (2013)

Sparkle Motion are back with another speaker smasher for ya boomin' systems: 'Night Hype' takes it back to the days of stonewashed jean-jacket combos, doorknocker earrings, hi-top fades, 8-Ball jackets and customized Dapper Dan leathers.
During the late 80s/early 90s, R&B music was only just starting to flirt with a harder hip hop sound. Getting rappers to feature on R&B tracks was something very new at the time. Producers started moving away from polished record production to drum machine-backed rhythms that included hip hop influences.
This mix is dedicated to that era, and intended to seriously cold rock the hypest house or block party. Once you hit play, prepare for fly honeys and bass devastation everywhere. Word to ya muthaaa.

LL Cool J 'No Airplay' unreleased version (1995)

 8 months ago I dropped some audio of LL performing live at Chuck Chillout's birthday party back in 1990. The tape included a peformance of the unreleased - and pretty much unheard - track 'She's Rockin'. As a result this humble little blog from the UK burbs briefly had twitter and the rap internet goin nutz (that is to say, J Zone got hyped about it and Ego Trip linked to it). Anyway, here's another rare LL joint for you. Up until today I was only aware of 2 versions of 'No Airplay'. The one on the 'Mr Smith' LP which is censored, and the uncensored 'dirty funky raw version' on this ultra rare promo 12". Going through some records this evening I came across this bootleg which features a 3rd version with different lyrics and a different beat.

If anyone has any info on this let me know. If there's a CDQ version on some long forgotten soundtrack or an official promo 12" out there then share the knowledge!

Rap Thangs That Shoulda Done Happened #2

You might remember that a while back I dropped a post called Rap Thangs That Shoulda Done Happened. The effects of this brief yet incredibly insightful piece shook the industry: A&Rs resigned, shamed by their incompetence. Dr Dre shelved 'Detox'. Puffy - who was on the verge of dropping Bad Boy's first legit rap banger for nearly a decade - went back to the drawing board.
But that was 8 months ago now and as today is the anniversary of MLK's 'I have a dream...' speech, here's the second installment:

#1 - Given their superb update of 'Boyz N The Hood', Dipset should blatantly have followed it with a cover of Levi 167's 'Something Fresh To Swing To'. Sparse 80s drums, that "dope, dope...d-d-dope dope" refrain and some coke raps by Cam, Jim & Juelz at the height of their powers would've been a mixtape classic.

#2 -  Outkast should have used the version of 'Da Art Of Storytellin' featuring Slick Rick on 'Aquemini' rather than just confining it to the 12". I don't think I need to explain this one. Dope video though.

#3 - Speaking of Slick Rick, I know everyone loves his debut LP but save for a couple of tracks I always felt it was a bit lacking in the beats department. Marley Marl and Prince Paul are the first two names that spring to mind that could've improved things.

#4 - Treach could've had a great solo album to his name. Instead of starring in straight-to-DVD flicks and warming up for New Kids On The Block on cruise ships full of soccer moms, he should've hit the mixtape circuit, found some decent producers and got busy. The man was a beast on the mic and if his freestyle over 'Keep It Thoro' on Doo Wop's Gangsta's Paradise mixtape is anything to go by then we missed out.
