”Look at all these slave masters, posin’ on yo’ dollar” … On “JU$T,” Run The Jewels deliver some hard hitting lyrics attacking the money system and the injustice that comes with it. Let’s face it, capitalism isn’t the same as democracy. Democracy is everyone equal rights, and that’s not what a capitalist society delivers. If you can afford two lawyers when charged with something, of course you have an advantage compared to someone living in the projects with no money.
9/10 … It’s been a loooooong time since I heard an album that emidettly when it’s over I put it on again and again and again…
“State of the Union” is their new aggressive and simply fantastic track. Produced by DJ Premier, it’s “a fiery return to the frontlines as they take on Donald Trump and his fascist regime,” according to a new press release. It continues: “An unflinching statement about the destruction the current administration has unleashed on the country and its people, ‘State of the Union (STFU)’ speaks truth to power while urging people to fight against racism, injustice and oppression with their vote.”
For me a new discovery, a duo consisting of Seven Shawn (Cousin of K-Def) and John Doe (Cousin of Marley Marl). They had a short career during the mid 1990’s where they released three 12” and also recorded one album that never got released. They came to my attention when I heard the brilliant title track from the groups […]
8/10 … Wu-Tang Clan is my all-time favourite hip hop act and Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon and GZA are all on my top 10 list of favourite rappers…..
After the murder of George Floyd, We the 99% of the people MUST join together, no matter what your skincolour, gender, age, sexuality are. We have had enough with the killing of black people. This is NOT a right vs. left question, this is a ”we the 99%”, that are ruled by the few psychopaths […]
Don’t much to say about this one lyricswise, but here are the mighty Redman showing his greatness with more or less just one long flow. This is one of these rare tracks that I can listen to repeat over and over again without getting tired of it. And it was only released on a mixtape back in 2014 …..
On a sunny summerday, or more precise on the 11th of August 1973 at 1520 Sedgwick Ave, South Bronx, New York. DJ Kool (Clive Campbell) Herc’s Back To School Jam spawned the culture that we now know as Hip-Hop. This all started when his younger sister, Cindy Campbell, became inspired to earn extra cash for […]

This session is simply amazing, pure joy!, all smiles, laughter and having fun for 57 minutes. I just had an awesome time in their company with a big smile all over my face. Few persons in the Grime scene or Hip Hop is as charismatic as Kano. Giggs is the first guest and then they […]
6,6/10 … This is a digital release compilation release only if I got it right. Although it’s a compilation, so all the tracks have been released before on separate 12″. There are several amazing tracks, but unfortunately even some that doesn’t entice me ……
10/10 … Amazing documentary about life in New York 1977. This is my #1 place I would go to if I knew how to time travel. I have always loved decadence, it gives me for some reason the feeling of being alive. Here we get to take a trip through the evolution of Hip Hop, with among others KRS-One and Afrika Bambaataa, through porn star Annie Sprinkle and the XXX live shows on 42nd street. The disco scene, the gay scene, the grafitti movement, the serial killer Son of …..
Yes, I know! Liking System of a Down is not cool by the insecure crowd, you know the ones who always wait for someone with an authority on the topic to say something so they can all think a like. Like sheeps going to slaughter. To me System of a Down have always had a unique sound and lyrics that matters. Just listen to this and focus on the lyrics. A masterpiece!
I’m probably stepping on someones toes right now when I want to call this “Industrial Rock”, it probably belongs to some subgenre I don’t even know exists (but want to discover more of). I discovered them by “accident”, when I opened up YouTube and someone I subscribed to had uploaded this and it was on […]
