SIR MIX-A-LOT

2010-04-06T17:16:21.202+02:00

Real Name: Anthony Ray Born: August 12, 1963 After attending Seattle's Roosevelt High School, Sir Mix-a-Lot got his first break in 1986 when a demo tape of "Square Dance Rap" started getting airplay on UK radio. Its popularity lead to its release as a single on the UK Streetwave label and Sir Mix-a-Lot's inclusion in the line-up in the UK Fresh concert at Wembley Arena later that year alongside many of hip hop's leading artists at the time. He first was signed by Nastymix Records, then left, established Rhyme Cartel Records and was signed by American Recordings. His first hit, released on Nastymix Records in 1988, was the single "Posse on Broadway"[2], giving some the impression that he was a New Yorker. The reference was actually to the street of the same name on Seattle's Capitol Hill. The song contains a sample from David Bowie's 1975 hit "Fame". Other popular hits include "Buttermilk Biscuits" (1988), "Square Dance Rap" (1988), "Beepers" (1989), "My Hooptie" (1990) — a song about a car in disrepair — and "Jump On It" (1996). Sir Mix-a-Lot has tended to write, arrange, program, perform, and produce his own music. His best-known song is the Miami Bass styled song "Baby Got Back" (1992), a number one hit that won him fame and the 1993 Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.[3] The single has since been parodied many times and is usually played in irony, celebrated for its over-the-top nature. A hook from the title song of his 1988 release Swass is finding a new audience with the success of The Pussycat Dolls' "Don't Cha". In 1993 Sir Mix-A-Lot collaborated with his hometown (Seattle) based grunge/rock group Mudhoney for the song 'Freak Momma' on the Judgment Night soundtrack. In 1995, Sir Mix-a-Lot starred as the titular character of the short-lived TV series The Watcher. The show was one of the first dramas aired on the fledgling broadcast network, UPN. Reminiscent of series such as The Twilight Zone, Sir-Mix-a-Lot functioned as an omniscient narrator who introduced each episode, which would feature a new tale set in the seamy underbelly of Las Vegas. A big fall-out with American Recordings in the run-up to the release of Return of the Bumpasaurus and general disillusionment with the direction rap music was taking led to a three year break before a return with a new record label for the release of Daddy's Home. During the three year break, Sir Mix-a-Lot worked closely with another group, The Presidents of the United States of America under the group name "Subset" with a combination of rock and rap music, however nothing was ever officially released. In 2007, Nas released the track Where Are They Now (West Coast Remix) which features Sir Mix-A-Lot, Breeze, King Tee, Kam, Candyman, Threat, Ice-T and the Conscious Daughters.ALBUMS: SIR MIX-A-LOT - MACK DADDY - 1992 CORNER GRAB: DOWNLOADSir Mix-A-Lot - Seminar - 1989CORNER GRAB: DOWNLOAD Sir Mix-A-Lot - Baby Got Back http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TWTFY9M5 It."[...]



IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE

2008-11-19T09:43:34.320+01:00

Inace ne stavljam novije stvari na blog, ali nekad napravim iznimke. Po preporuci frenda poslusao sam prvi album od IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE-a i moram priznati da covjek razvaljuje rime. Ostavljam na vama da sami prosudite!tnx to mayo from Hastati!!!BIOGRAPHY(courtesy of viperrecords.com):Born in a military hospital in South America, Immortal Technique was brought to the United States in the early 80's while a civil war was breaking out in his native Peru. The US supported puppet democracy and Guerilla factions were locked in a bitter struggle which ended like most do in Latin America, with the military and economic aid of the State Dept. through channels like the CIA. Although he had escaped the belligerent poverty and social turmoil of life in the 3rd world, he was now residing in Harlem which had its own share of drama. Growing up on the streets of New York, the young man became enamored with Hip Hop culture, writing graffiti and starting to rhyme at an early age. Although he frequently cut school and ended up being arrested time and time again for his wild behavior, the kid still managed to finish high school and got accepted to a state university. Unfortunately the survivalist and aggressive attitude that was the norm in New York City caused him to be involved in more violent altercations at school, whether it was with other brothers, false flaggers or the relentlessly racist population of an uncultured Middle America. Compiling multiple assault charges in New York State and in other states eventually caught up to the uncompromisingly hardheaded actions of one Immortal Technique. He faced several charges for Aggravated Assault in the tri-state area. Realizing his inevitable incarceration, Technique began to prolifically write down his ideas about what he had lived and seen in the struggle back at home in relation to his visits back to his native land. He came to embrace his African roots that stemmed from his grandfather and understood the nature of racism and ignorance in its role in Latino culture, separating oppressed peoples and keeping them divided. He also began to study in depth about the Revolutionary ideas that had caused a history of uprising in the indigenous community of his Native South America. Although pressured to turn states evidence before and during his bid, he refused the DA and lawyers. He was facing a 5-10 stretch, but the hiring of a pittbull attorney helped him compile the cases without turning snitch like his co-defendants. The result was a 1-2 year sentence in the mountains, 6 hours away from the city. There Technique studied, worked out vigorously, began to document his lyrics, and create songs. Besides the creation there was destruction, and the fights were nothing compared to the verbal battles that he engaged in occasionally. This proved to be a foreshadowing of what was to come... Paroled in 1999, Immortal Technique returned to NYC and began a campaign to claim victory to what he had discovered he had a talent for; battling. One of the rites of passage in establishing oneself in the Hip Hop community is following in the steps of those who made their name in lyrical warfare before you. Immortal Technique quickly became known throughout the underground. His brutally disrespectful style was trademark, and it was not long until he had won countless battles not just on stage and in clubs, but on the streets whenever a random cipher would pop up. From Rocksteady Anniversary, to Braggin Rites, SLAM DVD's and hookt.com's infamous battles, he established himself as someone who could captivate a crowd and who people looked forward to seeing. But it was then that Technique realized what every battle champion had come to terms with before him, battles was just that, battling, and not synonymous with success at making music. Turning his eye to production and touching up some of the songs he had written in prison he now focused on trying to get an album together[...]

US3

2008-06-23T14:32:24.318+02:00

I just love this fusion between jazz and hip hop. It's full of good jazz rhythms on one side, and nice and powerfull rhymes on the odher side. When those two are put together it sounds very powerfull. So, I decided to entroduce to you one of true representatives of this jazz-hip hop style - group named US3. BIOGRAPHY:The jazz/hip-hop fusion collective Us3 scored a major hit in 1994 with "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)," a song that displayed the group's fondness for sampling classic recordings on the Blue Note label (in this case, Herbie Hancock's "Cantaloupe Island"). The group was founded in London in 1991 when concert promoter and jazz writer Geoff Wilkinson met Mel Simpson, who was writing music for television shows and ad jingles and had once played keyboards with John Mayall. The two produced an independent single, "Where Will We Be in the 21st Century?," which sold less than 250 copies. In 1992, their song "The Band That Played the Boogie" attracted the attention of Blue Note owner Capitol Records, which gave Simpson and Wilkinson free rein to sample anything from the catalog. The two immediately went to work, hiring several musicians and rappers Kobie Powell and Rahsaan Kelly, with Tukka Yoot joining later. The sessions resulted in the hit "Cantaloop" and the album Hand on the Torch. The group toured Japan and Europe, gradually weaning itself away from using samples in a live setting, and played a well-received show at the 1993 Montreux Jazz Festival. Hand on the Torch was ignored by most jazz publications, but was chosen Album of the Year by Japan's Swing Journal, and the group were named Jazz Musicians of the Year by Britain's The Independent. After a nearly three-year delay, Us3 returned in 1997 with Broadway & 52nd, an album which received positive reviews but failed to generate a hit. The band -- though it was mostly Wilkinson and guests at this point -- continued to release new material into the new millennium, however, including 2005's Questions and 2007's Say What!?ALBUMS: US 3 - Hand On The Torch - 1993 Songs:01 Cantaloop02 I Got It Goin' On03 Different Rhythms Different People04 It's Like That05 Just Another Brother06 Cruisin'07 I Go To Work08 Tukka Yoot's Riddim09 Knowledge Of Self10 Lazy Day11 Eleven Long Years12 Make Tracks13 The DarksideCORNER GRAB: DOWNLOAD or DOWNLOAD (rapidshare) US3 - Broadway & 52nd - 19971.

CYBOTRON

2008-05-06T16:27:01.829+02:00

BIOGRAPHY (via allmusic.com):
The seminal electro group Cybotron provided the first home for the recordings of techno godfather Juan Atkins. With partner Rick Davis (aka 3070), Atkins recorded several of electro's best moments; the singles "Alleys of Your Mind," "Enter," and "Clear," were dark dystopias of the post-industrial steel city within tight Kraftwerk-inspired funk. Their success prompted Fantasy Records to sign the group, and release 1983's Enter LP. Atkins left soon after due to artistic differences (specifically, Davis' defined pop slant), and later defined early Detroit techno with his recordings as Model 500. Davis continued to release albums as Cybotron into the mid-'90s, though the mystical R&B direction of efforts like Empathy and Cyber Ghetto were quite a turn from the group's beginnings. For fans of electro and techno, Cybotron ended when Juan Atkins left.

POOR RIGHTEOUS TEACHERS

2008-04-28T22:59:41.981+02:00


BIOGRAPHY (via allmusic.com):
Part of the growing contingent of Islamic-oriented message rappers, Poor Righteous Teachers formed in Trenton, NJ, when teenage friends Culture Freedom and Wise Intelligent (songwriting credits are listed as S. Phillips and T. Grimes) decided to form a more positive rap group as an alternative to the gangsta style (which they vehemently defend). Joined by DJ and producer Father Shaheed, the group recorded two albums (1990's Holy Intellect and 1991's Pure Poverty) stressing their religious beliefs and philosophy; in spite of sometimes neglecting their music for their message, the albums sold respectably well. 1993's Black Business proved to be their most musically satisfying outing, drawing praise for Wise's ability to use the style and intonation of a reggae/dancehall toaster; however, it was also criticized for its liberal sprinkling of homophobia. New World Order followed in 1996.

CRASH CREW

2008-04-24T22:22:50.059+02:00

BIOGRAPHY(via allmusic.com)The six-man Crash Crew recorded a few old school anthems, one of which ("High Powered Rap") was released before Grandmaster Flash found a hit with the same jam (as "Freedom"). Based in Harlem's Lincoln Projects, the collective was formed by high-school friends E.K. Mike C, Reggie Reg (Reginald Payne), La Shubee, Barry Bistro, G-Man, and DJ Darryl C (Darryl Calloway). Beginning around 1977, gigs at block parties and Harlem's Club 197 gave them experience, and E.K. Mike C's studio connection gave them a chance to record much earlier than most other rappers. Borrowing from the funk track "Get up and Dance" by Freedom, Crash Crew recorded a short demo named "High Powered Rap" and sold the self-released single to fans at shows. Time hasn't recorded whether Sugar Hill got the idea for a new recording based on the song from Crash Crew or some other source, but regardless, the first national hit for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five was 1980's "Freedom," based on the same song. The group's first release on Sugar Hill, the single reached the R&B charts -- it was indeed far superior to Crash Crew's version -- and caused some enmity between the two acts.Ironically, Crash Crew soon made their own appearance on Sugar Hill, with quite a few tracks, including old school classics "We Are Known as Emcee's (We Turn Parties Out)" and "Breakin' Bells (Take Me to the Mardi Gras)." Even with five rappers, Crash Crew wasn't a very talented rap group; they excelled at party jams with a lot of repeat choruses instead of rapping. The group disappeared soon after, and none of the members continued in the music industry. In 2000, Sequel compiled their work for the collection We Are Emcees.CORNER GRAB: DOWNLOADVIDEO: CRUSH CREW[...]

ELEMENTAL

2008-03-28T09:45:52.437+01:00

BIOGRAPHY (preuzeto sa njihove sluzbene stranice www.elemental.com.hr): Elemental je u svojoj osnovi hip-hop bend koji ne slijedi stroge stilske odrednice, nego putuje različitim glazbenim žanrovima, posuđujući od svakog ono u čemu se najviše prepoznaje i na taj način obogaćuje vlastiti glazbeni stil. Elemental je nastao 1998. g i do sada objavio četiri studijska albuma.Veliki naglasak Elemental stavlja na svirke uživo, dinamične nastupe i izravnu komunikaciju sa svojom publikom. Bend nikada nije robovao glazbenim trendovima i ne vodi se prolaznošću singlova ili prodajom albuma. Svoju glazbu ne smatra proizvodom, nego svojim umjetničkim izrazom, pa se trudi u pjesme unositi inovativnost, originalnost i stvoriti vlastiti stil.Danas Elemental čine: Shot i Remi (MC-ji), Erol Zejnilović (gitara), Davor Zanoški (klavijature), Marijo Bilić (bas), Ivan Vodopijec (bubnjevi) i Nataša Tonković (prateći vokal).Počeci Elementala sežu u 1998.g kada su se okupili kao rap trojac i u toj postavi objavili dva albuma - 2000 g. debi album "Moj njegov i njen svijet" (Kondorcomm) i 2002. g. "Tempo Velegrada - Demiurg" (Menart). Posljednjih pet godina djeluju u sedmeročlanoj postavi, netipičnoj za rap formu, zamjenjujući "sampliranje" odsviranim glazbenim dionicama. U toj su postavi izdali svoja sljedeća dva albuma - 2004. g. "Male Stvari" i 2008. g. "Pod pritiskom" (Menart).U ožujku 2002., za izdavačku kuću Menart, Elemental izdaju svoj drugi album pod nazivom "Tempo Velegrada/Demiurg". Taj je album bio prekretnica uz koju se grupa približila svom sadašnjem zvuku s živim bendom. Na albumu su im gostovali mnogi eminentni hrvatski instrumentalisti, uglavnom jazz orijentacije, a vokalno su im pripomogli i razni hip-hop izvođači (Tram11, Bizzo iz Bolesne Braće, Špica, One II Many).U novoj postavi, Elemental izdaje svoj treći studijski album "Male Stvari" u listopadu 2004. S tog albuma je izdvojeno čak šest singlova, redom: "Napokon", "Romantika", "Tako lijepa", "Sama", "Iz dana u dan" i "Male stvari". Kao najveći hitovi s albuma istaknule su se pjesme "Romantika" i "Iz dana u dan". Album "Male Stvari" uvršten je u top 10 hrvatskih izdanja 2004. g.2005. godine Elemental je nominiran za hrvatsku diskografsku nagradu "Porin" u tri kategorije, a te iste godine Remi dobiva nagradu "Zlatna Koogla" za najbolji vokal. Spot za pjesmu "Tako lijepa" je 2006. g. dobio nagradu "Magdalena" za najbolji spot. 2007. g. Elemental dobiva "Zlatnu Kooglu" za spot "Iz dana u dan". Pjesma "Tako lijepa" dobila je odlikovanje emisije "HR Top 20" i ušla u top 20 najbolji pjesama 2006. Album "Male stvari" HDU (Hrvatska diskografska udruga) nagradila je srebrnom pločom za broj prodanih primjeraka albuma.Elemental je od izlaska albuma "Male stvari" odsvirao preko sto koncerata po cijeloj Hrvatskoj i predstavio se brojnim svirkama publici u BiH, Sloveniji i Makedoniji.Tijekom tri godine, uz mnogobrojne koncerte i nastupe u televizijskim i glazbenim emisijama, Elemental je radio na novim pjesmama i snimio novi album "Pod pritiskom". S albuma su već predstavljena tri singla, "Dobar dan" u kolovozu 2007., "Zašto te imam" u studenom 2007. i "Pod pritiskom" u veljači 2008. g. Svi su singlovi sjajno prihvaćeni i zauzeli su vrhove top ljestvica u cijeloj RH.Politički osviješten single "Zašto te imam" je zbog svog eksplicitnog spota i teksta pjesme zabranjen na većini televizijskih postaja, a na internetskoj stranici "Youtube" ga je do sada pogledalo preko 50.000 ljudi. Spot je režirala producentska kuća "Kosi Kadar".Novi album "Pod pritiskom" grupe Elemental pušten je u prodaju 7.2.2008. Novim album[...]

EVERLAST aka Mr. WHITEY FORD

2008-03-22T18:07:53.318+01:00

BIOGRAPHY (via allmusic.com):Once best known for his tenure in the rap unit House of Pain, Everlast successfully reinvented himself in 1998 with the best-selling Whitey Ford Sings the Blues, a largely acoustic, hip-hop-flavored effort in the genre-crossing mold of Beck. Born Erik Schrody, Everlast first surfaced in Los Angeles as a member of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate Cartel, issuing his debut album, Forever Everlasting, in 1990. When the album failed to find an audience, he formed House of Pain with Danny Boy and DJ Lethal; carving out an image which drew heavily on Everlast and Danny Boy's shared Irish heritage, the trio managed to overcome the stereotypes facing white rappers and scored a massive hit with their 1992 single "Jump Around." Their self-titled debut LP also went platinum, but when follow-ups including 1994's Same as It Ever Was and 1996's Truth Crushed to Earth Shall Rise Again failed to repeat House of Pain's early success, the group disbanded. Everlast then returned to his solo career, but while recording Whitey Ford Sings the Blues he suffered a massive cardiac arrest stemming from a congenital defect, resulting in heart bypass surgery and an artificial valve implant. Following his recovery, he completed the album, which appeared in the fall of 1998 to strong commercial notices: hitting the Top Ten, going platinum, and launching the Top 40 single "What It's Like." After appearing on Santana's vaunted comeback album Supernatural, Everlast began work on a follow-up with an eclectic group of guest artists. Titled Eat at Whitey's, the album was released in late 2000, and enjoyed critical notice even if it wasn't quite as succesful as Whitey Ford. Everlast then returned in 2004 with the moody, more song-driven White Trash Beautiful.EVERLAST - FOREVER EVERLASTING - 19901. Syndicate Soldier2. Speak No Evil3. Syndication (Remix)4. What Is This5.

KURTIS BLOW

2010-04-06T17:13:58.011+02:00

BIOGRAPHY (via allmusic.com):As the first commercially successful rap artist, Kurtis Blow is a towering figure in hip-hop history. His popularity and charisma helped prove that rap music was something more than a flash-in-the-pan novelty, paving the way for the even greater advances of Grandmaster Flash and Run-D.M.C. Blow was the first rapper to sign with (and release an album for) a major label; the first to have a single certified gold (1980's landmark "The Breaks"); the first to embark on a national (and international) concert tour; and the first to cement rap's mainstream marketability by signing an endorsement deal. For that matter, he was really the first significant solo rapper on record, and as such he was a natural focal point for many aspiring young MCs in the early days of hip-hop. For all his immense importance and influence, many of Blow's records haven't dated all that well; his rapping technique, limber for its time, simply wasn't as evolved as the more advanced MCs who built upon his style and followed him up the charts. But at his very best, Blow epitomizes the virtues of the old school: ingratiating, strutting party music that captures the exuberance of an art form still in its youth.Kurtis Blow was born Kurtis Walker in Harlem in 1959. He was in on the earliest stages of hip-hop culture in the '70s -- first as a breakdancer, then as a block-party and club DJ performing under the name Kool DJ Kurt; after enrolling at CCNY in 1976, he also served as program director for the college radio station. He became an MC in his own right around 1977, and changed his name to Kurtis Blow (as in a body blow) at the suggestion of his manager, future Def Jam founder and rap mogul Russell Simmons. Blow performed with legendary DJs like Grandmaster Flash, and for a time his regular DJ was Simmons' teenage brother Joseph -- who, after changing his stage name from "Son of Kurtis Blow," would go on to become the first half of Run-D.M.C. Over 1977-1978, Blow's club gigs around Harlem and the Bronx made him an underground sensation, and Billboard magazine writer Robert Ford approached Simmons about making a record. Blow cut a song co-written by Ford and financier J.B. Moore called "Christmas Rappin'," and it helped him get a deal with Mercury once the Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" had climbed into the R&B Top Five.Blow's second single, "The Breaks," was an out-of-the-box smash, following "Rapper's Delight" into the Top Five of the R&B charts in 1980 and eventually going gold; it still ranks as one of old school rap's greatest and most enduring moments. The full-length album Kurtis Blow was also released in 1980, and made the R&B Top Ten in spite of many assumptions that the Sugarhill Gang's success was a one-time fluke. Although the album's attempts at soul crooning and rock covers haven't dated well, the poverty-themed "Hard Times" marked perhaps the first instance of hip-hop's social consciousness, and was later covered by Run-D.M.C. Blow initially found it hard to follow up "The Breaks," despite releasing nearly an album a year for most of the '80s. 1981's Deuce and 1982's Tough weren't huge sellers, and 1983's Party Time EP brought D.C. go-go funksters E.U. on board for a stylistic update. Around this time, Blow was also making his mark as a producer, working with a variety of hip-hop and R&B artists; most notably, he helmed most of the Fat Boys' records after helping them get a record deal. 1984's Ego Trip s[...]



GRANDMASTER FLASH

2008-04-01T22:34:18.892+02:00

BIOGRAPHY (via allmusic.com):DJ Grandmaster Flash and his group the Furious Five were hip-hop's greatest innovators, transcending the genre's party-music origins to explore the full scope of its lyrical and sonic horizons. Flash was born Joseph Saddler in Barbados on January 1, 1958; he began spinning records as teen growing up in the Bronx, performing live at area dances and block parties. By age 19, while attending technical school courses in electronics during the day, he was also spinning on the local disco circuit; over time, he developed a series of groundbreaking techniques including "cutting" (moving between tracks exactly on the beat), "back-spinning" (manually turning records to repeat brief snippets of sound), and "phasing" (manipulating turntable speeds) -- in short, creating the basic vocabulary which DJs continue to follow even today.Flash did not begin collaborating with rappers until around 1977, first teaming with the legendary Kurtis Blow. He then began working with the Furious Five -- rappers Melle Mel (Melvin Glover), Cowboy (Keith Wiggins), Kid Creole (Nathaniel Glover), Mr. Ness aka Scorpio (Eddie Morris), and Rahiem (Guy Williams); the group quickly became legendary throughout New York City, attracting notice not only for Flash's unrivalled skills as a DJ but also for the Five's masterful rapping, most notable for their signature trading and blending of lyrics. Despite their local popularity, they did not record until after the Sugarhill Gang's smash "Rapper's Delight" proved the existence of a market for hip-hop releases; after releasing "We Rap More Mellow" as the Younger Generation, Flash and the Five recorded "Superappin'" for the Enjoy label owned by R&B legend Bobby Robinson. They then switched to Sugar Hill, owned by Sylvia Robinson (no relation), after she promised them an opportunity to rap over a current DJ favorite, "Get Up and Dance" by Freedom (the idea had probably been originally conceived by Crash Crew for their single "High Powered Rap").That record, 1980's "Freedom," the group's Sugar Hill debut, reached the Top 20 on national R&B charts on its way to selling over 50,000 copies; its follow-up, "Birthday Party," was also a hit. 1981's "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel" was the group's first truly landmark recording, introducing Flash's "cutting" techniques to create a stunning sound collage from snippets of songs by Chic, Blondie, and Queen. Flash and the Five's next effort, 1982's "The Message," was even more revelatory -- for the first time, hip-hop became a vehicle not merely for bragging and boasting but for trenchant social commentary, with Melle Mel delivering a blistering rap detailing the grim realities of life in the ghetto. The record was a major critical hit, and it was an enormous step in solidifying rap as an important and enduring form of musical expression.Following 1983's anti-cocaine polemic "White Lines," relations between Flash and Melle Mel turned ugly, and the rapper soon left the group, forming a new unit also dubbed the Furious Five. After a series of Grandmaster Flash solo albums including 1985's They Said It Couldn't Be Done, 1986's The Source, and 1987's Da Bop Boom Bang, he reformed the original Furious Five lineup for a charity concert at Madison Square Garden; soon after, the reconstituted group recorded a new LP, 1988's On the Strength, which earned a lukewarm reception from fans and critics alike.
