If You Only Had Four Hands!


So you could give me four thumbs down...not even one post in October! Let's see, my birthday came, I traveled out West twice, re-did my music room, and organized thousands of lovely old school hip-hop music files (think of that as ammo).

Speaking of my birthday...my man Scottie B from Baltimore came up and we threw down a solid dose of dance floor heat. But at 3 a.m. with Shinehead's "Know How Fi Chat" still in my head from earlier that day, and still feeling the vapors from the PUMA Yo! MTV Raps party I did in Boston, I blacked out on some late 80's reggae and hip-hop. I couldn't get off the tables til they turned the lights on, and when they did, I had a smirk on my face 'cause there ain't nothin' like playing your favorite records on your favorite sound system on your birthday. And that's a word up.

YEAH MAN, finally something decent to read while fucking off at work. I used to listen online from Altoona, PA and Steubenville, OH. Before trading tapes with NY heads in the 90's. I miss having a good reason to stay up till 5am. Keep the posts coming. The real heads need it!

God bless you stretch, for making the best reason for me to use a computer. Keep that music coming. I love gettin all nostalgic with this blog. If by any chance you're digging through your old shows and you come across that old busta rhymes freestyle, the one that got put on the first zoo york mixtape.

That's a great mix of stuff I don't hear or play often enough. The song between "Is It Live?" and "The Word" is killing me-- anybody know what that is?
