Nothing too obscure, just shit I enjoy. Divshare is fucking with my Lil' Bruce files, and won't put them up, so you're missing out on some bay area classics. I'll try and devote a post to him later. Also coming soon, a latter-career Scarface post, detailing why he should be releasing the third future classic rap record this year.
8Ball and MJG - Top of the World
Mid-nineties feelgood shit.
Too $hort ft. Devin the Dude, Bun B and Big Gipp - Pimp Life
This reminds me so much of Ridin' Dirty. I wish more tracks made in the 00's could capture this sound.
OutKast - Benz or Beamer
Soundtrack song from their early days.

This is one of the greatest things I have ever heard, I guess the homie James Lipton moved chickens in Paris back when he was "young and penniless" there. When you put it all together, it totally makes sense. You can't achieve that creepy air of calmness until you've put in work in the pimp game. If you look closely at his interview with Drew Barrymore, you can see that they had to cover up the black eye he gave her a couple days previous when she came back from the track $20 short.
This makes me wonder whether any other famous folks are gonna be inspired to reveal their secret past lives as pimps. Personally, I am pulling for Ted Koppel, or maybe Larry King.

South Bronx be damned, the origins of rap music lie in the cornfields of Springfield, Ohio. Joe "Jody" Parsley released his record "Soul Streak" in 1974, on which he most definitely raps. Most of what I heard of the song on this news segment is about getting naked, and convincing girls to do so, two things I heartily approve of. Dude, who is fucking 80 years old, says he started practicing his rhymes whilst bringing in the cows on his farm. I do not know, nor do I care, about the validity of Jody's claims, I just think it is tight that I can now blindly claim to be from that state that birthed rap music. Y'all jealous?
Shouts to the homie FuckLiberals for the link.

Not to worry, though. Rell goes on to say that he's still "got love for the rest of Ohio, out there in the C.O, Cincinnati, Akron, Dayton, Toledo, and Cleveland." So, all you Ohioans who have been lying awake at night worrying about what you were gonna do when Hell Rell came to get his revenge, unless you live in Grove City, you're safe for the time being.
Grove City residents should beware, though. If you see a man walking down the street in a Coogi sweater, make your peace with God, because that sweater conceals an uzi, and Rell leaves no debts unsettled.

Yeah, I fell of for the summer. Whatever.
Turf Talk, Kells and UGK fucking killed it. Those records were pretty much my summer. Baydestrian was pretty tight, that Trae mixtape was dope, BOB owned shit, sure I'm forgetting a bunch of other good stuff, but I'll resolve that later. There were some nice singles, which I will hopefully acknowledge in a year-end roundup...
For now, I will just post a couple of things from the past month or so that made me happy.
Lil Wayne - Crank That Weezy Wee
"Why me listen to me speakin', I'm just gon' say whatever come to my head. I like chicken. Chicken. Chicken. Chicken. Macacaroni. Potato Salad. Chicken."
BG feat. Young Jeezy - Hustle
No song has made me wanna get money this bad since "Get Ya Mind Right" first came out. Anybody finds a CD quality rip, holler at me.
Mistah FAB feat. Too $hort - Lose It
So glad these dudes decided to make a bunch of songs together.
Project Pat -Rubber Band Me
This chorus really amuses me. Glad to see Pat staying on top of things.
Slick Pulla - It's Slick (Prod. by Mannie Fresh)
Not amazing, but I like it.
I'll try and post more soon.
