Reasons why I love YouTube: In The Trunk edition

"Put that tooth under my pillow and went on to sleep
And at 5 AM in the morning I was laid up with a freak"



Ah, so this is one of Too $hort & Freddy B's infamous pre-75 Girls Records street tapes which they used to slang outta the trunk around the Bay. 1983 Oakland adventures of super XXX-rhymes about mackin' white freaks and the Tooth Fairy over Spyder D's Smerphies Dance.

Bonus beats: this guy really needs to digimitize his Too $hort and Freddy B street tapes.

The Tooth Fairy of the west!

It's worth pointing out that Dru Down's Head & Shoulders used the Smerphies Dance drums long before How We Do.

Whish someone could also digitize old Calvin T & Magic Mike tapes, the other Oaktown hustlers duo that used to sell tapes on street corners, before jail time made them almost disappear from history.

There's a couple of their songs on the tube that might be right up your alley:
