excellent method man remix, i have this japanese release too, method man is one of the most under appreciated rappers out there.
Billy: Your shoutout has been received, and is duly reciprocated.
maybe the whole VH1 style classic thing is only inevitable considering the age of 80s/90s hip hop fans, Now in later 30s...
I have a quick question for your guests, where do they stand on Hip Hop Scholars aka the academics, such as Richard Shusterman, who as an art scholar, has written extensively on the aesthetics of rap lyricism, as hip hop journalists from the early era, do they feel like that is a good place for hip hop to be reviewed?
I had no idea that was a prodigy remix, i have that song on a burned cd a friend lent me, that was labeled method man remixes from japan that has all these psychedelic type method man remixes. including four spacey-minimalist versions of "all i need".
HIP HOP kareoke RULES! --take it from one who is NOT into Kareoke....lots of venues (at least in the SF BayArea) frown on raw hip-hop being played continuously as folks may get "out of hand", however, throw up a mic and a live dj to mix up selections and you get folks in a hyped audience getting up to throw down Too Short, NWA, Alkaholics......im telling you....way too much fun...
