Metabeats Halloween Mix

It's been way too quiet over here ... more on that later.

But check this Metabeats Halloween Mix. It's missing my fav: "My Mind's Playing Tricks on Me" by the Geto Boys, but it's a nice, FREE mix.

Get your crypt walk on hip hoppers. kfox.

Young Gully f/Young Dee "Grant Station"

Now we're talking ... here's another case of me just playing some music and having to stop because of the music.

Young Gully f/Young Dee "Grant Station"

I pulled up this email randomly and decided to listen to some music while I was working. So the music was going to be the backdrop, right? But before I could pull down the volume, I said 'what's he saying about a station?' It was catchy; it was mellow; it appeared to be somewhat non-descript, but the hook is strong. Of course, I had to start it over and totally focus. Nice joint: socially conscious and vibin with the community:
I know nothing about Young Gully, but I like the track. It's the title track from the cd "The Grant Station Project" and it's a tribute to Oscar Grant. Gully gets more than sufficient support from Young Dee (though they could get better stage names) who comes in w/his slow and slurry delivery. Love the 'conductor' too at the end of the track.

It's message music hip hoppers, but is the message getting through? kfox.

AUDIO: Fat Beats: The End of a Hip Hop Era

I heard this on NPR recently. Nice and short piece ... another record store closing its doors.

Hip hoppers, how are we gonna preserve hip hop's past? kfox.
