pop is king dead of the

this is for the weekend, for you to get ready, get dressed, get sharp. put this on and let it put you in a funking good mood. we start off with some classics reworked and made funkier. my man j-e-l brings the noise as he usually does, in his somewhat melodic, yet off the grid type beat making style. i am a huge fan of the 3 mcs on the next track, a blend I did in real time (in one take!) to me the best thing about all 3 of them is that they seem to be in on the joke – hip hop is beyond bloviated, so lets have some fun with the machismo, bravado, and hyperbole. Donald Byrd’s trumpet makes me want to have sex. It reminds me of the scene in Brave New World, when Bernard sees a Sexaphone performance. Yeah, sexaphone. awesome. i have played the Grand Ole Party track a couple of times out and about and almost always someone asks if its some undiscovered white stripes joint. It aint. but its that good. Its also unmastered and mega dirty. I don’t usually go for “underground mcs” i think they are pretentious and despite their bgi vocabularies, are usually full of empty rhetoric, but cool calm pete, almost always delivers, and this one is one of his bests. that Deejay OM track IS off the hook. Exploiting bangrah, and bollywood culture, repackaging it for ignant amerrikans, brilliant. It all sounds funny, its irony meter is off the charts, so it must be good right? OM is followed by a tribute to king of pop remixed by the kings of hip hop beatmaking. Then its onto the best rapper alive right now. yeah I said it ad the mofo don’t even speak English. Everytime i hear residente open his mouth i wish more people spoke Spanish. he raps primarily about food and sex, but damn its like he has a phd in food and sex. The guy is nothing short of brilliant. i have to be honest about this track - i hardly ever play this track outside of my bedroom. its so full of racist stereotypes that i am always afraid people will miss the point and only “hear” the “funny” accents, but the truth is the dude is dropping some knowledge about how focusing on differences prevents you from seeing similarities. And its funny, cause its so damn ignant. Gal Costa is superb. the outro on this mix comes courtesy of “greascast” a really insane radio show from back in the days, the dj, “the grease” aka “grease” aka “grease man” is a wacko old skool type radio dj – you know in the vein of, wolfman jack and ed lover and - oh what does it matter, you don’t know what I am talking about….
