Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap – June 2012

I remember seeing an early trailer for this and thinkin it was just another budget affair that probably wouldnt inspire me or educate me. I take that back. Im interested now because the core of the subject matter is less about the artists involved, its about the craft of rapping, although its always nice to see Caz in conversation about how it was actually Barry Manilow & Melle Mel that inspired him. Nice to see that the film will cover the important subject of an individual rappers style, and technique.

The underlying importance of this film is that the millions of worldwide fans who want to know more about the origins of Rap, get to discover the truth behind what the elders grew up with. It is also important because street poetry and the actual ART of rapping and rhyming words is still so integral to the soundtracks of our lives in 2012.

Proof Positive.

that Hip Hop is not only alive and well in 2012, but positively thriving in the stweets of new york..yes, a lil rough round the edges, but hey, that Run DMC sweatshirt will shut your hating ass down…TJ Mizzel, rocks very w.e.l-l..

Shake Your Rump Sample Breakdown.

T.O, you know…

As much as i like someone being called Swamp Donkey, and as much as i like Mickey Piretta, this is ALL about the video…the third guy is semi-nice,though, to my ears.

Canadians doing Hip-Hop??whatever next?..

The Video gets E for effort, and T for nice try…

“Indians, you know, being nice…”

Some see Snoop, formally Doggy, Dogg as a has been, but they are fast asleep on some of the music he’s made SINCE the “murder was the case” soundtrack….recently, the wheels have been a li’l shaky, but after watching GGNN on a weekly basis, i’m amazed he has the time or inclination to get in the studio, when he could just stay home and chat some shit with his homeboys,

it’s not like he needs the money..anyways.

i take my diet smoke break, flip this on, and get a laugh, everytime which at 10.30am, is harder than you think….chuuch!

the best of last year..

and the current one (ish).get on board if you enjoy your humour through slanty eyes…”i been in jail so much, i know how to make cheese outta cheezits.”

“Just say action

it is i, sirstyles, back in your mouthpiece…for the TwoDozen -twentytwelve, for all you suckers, asĀ  i’ve been asked by the Chief Camanche (hat, fat link, gold rings, nothing fancy) your man irish Craig to get back on it like the aformationed Blue Bonnet…right.

The Beatsies are always good in interview, even when they don’t try..

they were poking fun at the absurdity that was MTV, and still doing the promo they had promised Rush Russ..
