Song 4 H >>> Song 4 U

"This is a tape, but at the same time it's ill
They said this is your fate, you'll be a Husalah that's real
Look at my face, I do give women the chills
These n*ggas they see I'm pretty, they think they know what the deal
Go ahead, get shot and buried in a hill
This is very very real, I suggest you stay very still'"

Husalah - Inshallah (In God's Will)
(From Coco County - The Album compilation; 2003)

Late pass! Feelin' tardy right now because I never knew Cutthoat Committee's Song 4 U was an obscure Husalah solo song originally before RobLo resold the beat to Mac Dre. Vintage spiritual criminal on-the-run Husalah over RobLo's holy ghost of Joni Mitchell chop-suey.

Arf @ the Coco County compilation also featuring a song by Husalah's soon-to-be bête cracker.

Methane Man

"1 hand on the wheel, 1 foot on the gas
In the diamond lane I think I'm goin' too fast
All a n*gga need is 1 mo' lick
I swear to God I'm gonna get out this shit
1 hand on the wheel, 1 foot on the gas
Hittin' hella corners with a choppa and a mask
All a n*gga need is 1 mo' lick
'Cause even then I would get out this shit"

Shady Nate - 1 Mo' Lick
(From Gasman Unleashed album; 2008)

"You've gotta know when to hit the lick, you've gotta know when to hit the road" as Kenny Rogers nearly once advised. The best J.Stalin slap not actually recorded by J.Stalin or wot? Never knew this had a video, nor could I have ever imagined it'd have over a million views since the clip is nowt but Nate alone in his car like Tom Hardy in Locke.

Generic list post: So International


Remember the time Giggs went all Finbarr Saunders & His Double Entendres with a legit jam about his todger? How about the time Iggy Aztralea bodied everything Nicki Minaj dropped in 2014? Or the time MHD recorded a French language bangeur about French football? What about the time J Hus made every American dance-Rap song of 2015 sound superfluous? And who can forget the time two Nigerian lads DJ Consequence & YCEE made the 2010's British Grime revival sound like the tepid Redbull-sponsored shite it truly was? If your memory's foggier than Victorian London then here's a reminder of all the above & some other favorites.

The best non-Yank Rap songs of the 2010s, IMHO:

Giggs - Monsta Man (2011)
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX - Fancy (2014)
MHD - Afro Trap Part 3 (Champions League) (2015)
J Hus ft. DoccyDocs - Lean & Bop (2015)
Krept & Konan ft. Jeremih - Freak Of The Week (2015)
New Age Muzik - Da Beat (2016)
21 Savage & Metro Boomin' - No Heart (2016)
Young T & Bugsey - No Mickey Mouse Ting (2016)
DJ Consequence ft. YCEE In A Benz (2016)
J Hus - Did You See (2017)
MoStack - Let It Ring (2017)
Donae'O - Black (Social Circles Remix) (2017)
Sneakbo ft. Giggs - Active (2017)

Definite correlation between me losing interest in Roadrapfrobeats and me growing bored with Auto-Tune. It also doesn't help that, after the rise of U.K Drill, loadsa rappers from the Roadrapfrobeats scene have developed stars & stripes in their eyes and started rhyming about trap-phones and the like. The only good thing which can come from Brexit is if the U.K starts deporting any British citizens who've ever rhymed about traps, opps, and bandos.

The Roosh V Is On Fire

Positive K & MC Lyte - I'm Not Havin' It
(From The First Priority Music Family: Basement Flavor compilation; 1988)

Sid The Sexist taught us that conversation is often the best foreplay, thus Rap songs about chirpsing will always be preferable to Rap songs about shagging. The O.G. battle of the sexes/wits Rap duet, I'm Not Havin' It was the inspiration for Mary J. Blige & Grand Puba's What's The 411?, as well as the prototype for Positive K's own PUA Righteous Chirpsers anthem I Got A Man. Pos' & MC Lyte recently dropped a 2k19 follow-up, which is better than you'd expect but not a sequel of the Good Combination '95 caliber™.

Positive K & MC Lyte - I'm Still Not Havin' It
(From YouTube; 2019)

Word around town, Positive K plans to renounce his PUA past in a Rap duet with Foxy Brown over the Seven Minutes Of Funk sample. The song's title? Ain't No Negga.

The Poor Elementz: Jaz

A new series dedicated to various 4 elementz survivalists polluting t'internet who make Dart Adams seem like one of the DGB guys. For doz who've slept, heeeeeeere's Jaz.

Who dat: emotionally unstable Kiwi bloke known for defending REAL HIP HOP as if it were his mother's honour and for spazzing the fuck out. Jaz is the DJ for a New Zealand age traveller Rap group who make Ugly Duckling sound like UGK.


Key beefs: moderated the original Cocaine Blunts message board back in the mid noughties but went apeshit after Noz posted a Lil' Wayne song on the blog. TBF, Jaz is slightly more open-minded than the other troglodytes in this series (translation: he listens to Suga Free), which probably explains why he's beefed with both Wicked22 and A.C The P.D.

Notable opinionz: constantly complains about violent misogyny in Rap yet loves Big L and The Beatnuts.

Other eccentricities: regularly makes angry posts about the Kardashians on his Instagram; dyed his hair black when he visited China "out of respect" but left his beard grey.

Maxwell Pubas before Metro Boomins

Positive K - Step Up Front
(From Step Up Front single; 1988)

Why'd the only decent quality upload of the Step Up Front video get deleted from YouTube so all we're left with is this unwatchable/unlistenable fuzzfest? Whoever has the decent quality video rip needs to step up front and upload that shit so we can all inspect Positive K & his crew's garms again whenever we're reminding ourselves that it woz Grand Puba Maxwell not Dr. Dre or Metro Boomin'/Southside who first freaked the Ironside theme.

The 3 Heineken Technique mix of Step Up Front featuring King Of Chill wasn't quite the first great Rap remix (that'd be BDP's Remix For P Is Free IMHO), but it might be the first great Rap remix to feature all new lyrics and to introduce a guest Rapper. In that sense, it woz Possy Pos' not his old foe Puffy who Invented The Remix™.

Let's talk notable 80's remixes then, lads. Rules are no truncated 7" versions of early Rap 12"s (they're radio edits rather than remixes), and no C.J. Mackintosh club mixes (they're all shite.) Extended mixes in the Egyptian Lover stylee are, however, welcome.

Generic list post: January 2019

Obligatory wrap-up post of those songs I've played most during the month when the VladTV wardrobe department must have had a clothing shortage.

The Bizzie Boys - Brainstorm (1988/2011)
Cam'Ron ft. Ted Dibiase & Frank Muller - Oh Boy (Remix) (2002)
Pablo Skywalkin - No Big Homie (2017)
Eat Em & Spitta - Side N*gga (2018)
DaBaby - Walker Texas Ranger (2019)
AZ - It's Time (2019)

Other notables: listened to that 70th Street Carlos & Sauce Walka teaser snippet more than any of the songs Carlos dropped this past month; Z-Ro pleasantly surprised me with the best single I've heard from him in a few years; Queen Key and Quelle Chris both disappointed me with their new songs; checked Sada Baby's Bartier Bounty album and this was my conclusion; spent a good portion of January revisiting old Rap from 1989, 1999, and 2009.

Monday, 28 January 2019

Late pass!

Pablo Skywalkin - No Big Homie
(From YouTube; 2017)

2010's Detroit street Rap: a scene where Newcleus are more influential than Nas. Prefer this 2017 Pablo Skywalkin single to Cash Kidd's 2018 Jam On It interpolation, meself. Aside from a Zorbas here, a Planet Of The Apes there, or a LLYGMISTA everywhere, this current wave of Detroit street Rap still makes the most sense to my ears when it goes jackin' for beats from decades past/parts elsewhere.

All of which is a convoluted way of saying I ain't feelin' the production on Sada Baby's Bartier Bounty album apart from a couple of last year's singles. Can't fault a city for having its own default sound, but I can fault the default sound for being merely functional rather than function music.

Friday, 25 January 2019

Styles By The 'Gram Part Whateva Man

Sounds like Carlos' best song since Wake Me Up, right? I don't even like Sauce Walka usually but this is on my most anticipated songs of early 2019 list alongside this Rich Blue shit and that Eat Em shit.

If Feds is listenin'...

"I show you how to weigh your work on the way to work
I be proud of you like, dog, that's the way to work"

Cam'Ron ft. Ted Dibiase & Frank Muller - Oh Boy (Remix)
(From Westwood's BBC Rap show; 2002)

Peep what Step "Plug" One found on a tape of a 2002 Westwood show: a remix of Oh Boy featuring a new Cam'Ron verse and 2 verses by some Philly duo called Ted Dibiase & Frank Muller who went by the name of The Feds/Fedz (nope, us neither.) Step asked Just Blaze if it's official or nah, and he reckons it must be some "fake DJ trickery" because he'd never heard it before, so who knows? Whatever the case may be, it's a Cam verse I've never heard elsewhere, and Step's right about it being a way better flip than the Oh Girl remix with those annoying half-arsed "GIIIRRL" vox every 7 seconds.

The Poor Elementz: Wicked22

A new series dedicated to various 4 elementz survivalists polluting t'internet who make Dart Adams seem like one of the DGB guys. For doz who've slept, allow me to introduce Wicked22.

Who dat: quintessential REAL HIP HOP retard who looks like tubby Scott Storch if he were an extra in Dilated Peoples' Worst Comes To Worst video. Wicked22 is known for bragging he has a mammoth 'vinyls' collection, yet appears to have no more than 500 records maximum in the myriad of pictures he carpet bombs the internet with.

Greatest quotes: "For all you br0s asking if Black Jeff and Asian Jeff are my only ethnic friends, here's a spreadsheet which breaks down the races of the 37 people I count as actual close friends. These are the people who I would wish a happy birthday to and people who I'd help out if they needed my help. Those 37 friends are people who I pretty regularly keep in touch with, 12-15 of which I semi-regularly see and hangout with."

Key beefs: "gAY ass mainstream rap"; "fAGGIT ass nerd rap"; "gAY ass drumless rap"; "fAGGIT ass MP3s"; former UGHH.com CEO Adam "Quest" Walder.

Notable opinionz: doesn't so much have opinions as a handful of stockphrases he's been repeating ad nauseam for the last 15 years. Where A.C The Program Director's parochial backwardness can be explained by the head injury he suffered in the 90's, Wicked's myopic palilalia is the sewage pipe through which his Asperger's flows.

Other eccentricities: wearing t-shirts over sweatshirts; creepy fetish for AZN women; big craft beer enthusiast.

Born To Audiomack: 2010's Golden Oldies (Re-Up)

Remember my playlist of legit jams from decades past which were officially unreleased until they finally saw the proper light of day during the 2010's? Shit's just been updated with a funky little 1988 Bizzie Boyz song which flew under my radar when it dropped in 2011 (The Bizzie Boyz being Ski Beatz's first Rap group from North Carolina, mainly known for Droppin' It which appeared on Ego Trip's The Big Playback compilation.) Shout out to BudBundy1978 and DaBaby, North Carolina is in this bitch.

Generic list post: 2009 was 10 years ago!

The finale of this cheap nostalgia-fest. 30 Legit Jams™ from the year of the Gucci Mane blog post comment section wars. Bit of an anticlimax after the 1989 and 1999 lists, but a not half bad if you're willing to accept that 80% of everything good in 2009 was now on the internet or from some obscure independent album.

DOOM - Gazzillion Ear
Lil B - Like A Martian
DJ Quik & Kurupt - 9x's Outta 10
Max B - Where Do I Go?

Witchdoctor - Rich & Poor

Honourable mention of sorts goes to T-Pain & Lil' Wayne's Listen To Me: supposed to drop in 2009 but didn't see the light of day until 2017. G.O.A.T use of the Oompa Loompa song or wot?

Friday, 11 January 2019

Generic list post: 1999 was 20 years ago!

You knew this was comin' after the recent favourite Rap songs of 1989 list, right? 30 Legit Jams™ from the year when da machinez didn't all implode at the stroke of midnight on december 31st.

MF DOOM ft. DJ Cucumber Slice - Rhymes Like Dimes
UGK - Wood Wheel
Black Rob - Whoa
Mystikal & OutKast - Neck Uv Da Woods
Ghostface Killah ft Raekwon - Apollo Kids
Method Man & Redman - Y.O.U

Harlem World - Cali Chronic
Slick Rick - I Own America (Part 1)
Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff ft. Biz Markie & Slick Rick - So Fresh
Nelly - County Grammar (Hot Shit)
Fatman Scoop & Crooklyn Clan - Be Faithful

There's at least 4 songs here which have been rinsed to near-ruination by bait DJs, but they're still such 5 star general choonz that I can't bring meself to snub 'em: Simon Says, The Next Episode, Hip Hop, and Be Faithful. Pains me somewhat to snub Mobb Deep, Mac Dre, B.G., 8Ball & MJG, and Nas but none of 'em released a song in 1999 that I like as much as anything in this list.

'99 is also notable for being the year when the absolute worst Rap song of all time dropped. What's more horrific: the sight of 2 birds drinking scat in 2 Girls, 1 Cup, or the sound of Mos Def doing his dibba-dibba-dinosaur scat-singing on Umi Says? (FYI, I never watched 2 Girls, 1 Cup meself. I did, however, watch the Bun B reaction video.)

The Low End Query

Turns out Queen Key's Ha wasn't the final frontier of Chicago sub-bass, that'd be her new single Ratchett. Alas, that isn't a compliment this time around because the low-end on Ratchett sounds like it was mixed & mastered by the ghost of Helen Keller. True story: if you slap Ratchett through a proper pair of speakers you'll suffer the same fate as Lost Boy Dwayne.

Who'd a thunk there'd be such a thing as too much bass?

Treal Lee T.V

It's 2019, do you know what that mean? It's now a decade since the YouTube video of Treal Lee & Prince Rick dancing to Get Off Me Now with Mr. Hit Dat Hoe in their Dallas neighbourhood was uploaded. Word around town, this video is so HIP HOP that it cured Kool Herc's kidney stones - well, that's what Herc told his sister after all the donations from the PayPal account she set up mysteriously disappeared and his kidney stones miraculously cleared up overnight. Not tryna suggest that Kool Herc is a dishonest motherfucker, but when he played Liverpool back in 2000 he pretended to be doing the beat-juggling on Fusion Beats Vol. 2 himself.

Treal Lee & Prince Rick ft. Wideframe - Mr. Hit Dat Hoe
(From YouTube; 2009)

Anyhoo, it's a bit unfair that Treal Lee & Prince Rick are only remembered for Throwed Off (Fuck Everybody) innit? Here at The Martorialist we've gotta lorra lorra love for their ode to Mr. Hit That Hoe, Shoes Up, and Transform. Treal Lee & Prince Rick actually had a nice little run of songs between 2009 - 2012, but it's probably not a coincidence that they fell off after they switched from Levi's to True Religion - you can't be Dallas cowboys if you've got some homme Eurotrash jeans hanging off your arses, lads.

Making Moves With Troup

Always thought the grainy black & white Fresh Records press releases were the only photographic evidence of late '80's Craig Mack in his O.G Rap incarnation as MC EZ, so colour me surprised to find some multi-shade flava for ya eye. Yung Mack wearing what look like Troop high-tops circa the MC EZ & Troup era:

Bonus beats: Mack's Please Listen To My Demo remake has so much more pathos than the EPMD O.G. Erick & Parrish kept it philosophical like the Greek man Plato, but Mack made it spiritual/educational like the German word Bildungsroman.

Craig Mack - Please Listen To My Demo
(From The Wooden Horse 12" single; 1999/The Mack World Sessions album; 2017)

I Got That Work Husband

"And her lil' juvenile 'll set it off behind her
And her sugar daddy buy her nothin' but designer
But her main n*gga, he the real shiner
He the Birdman, he a real Big Tymer"

Eat Em & Spitta - Side N*gga
(From Industreets The Mixtape; 2018)

Nowt firm handshake with this one, more of a behind-your-back anthem by the Baton Rouge rapper who looks like young Tragedy & the Baton Rouge rapper who isn't Curren$y. Not so much Creepin' On Ah Come Up as Creepin' On Ahnother Man's Cum Up.

Generic list post: December 2018

Obligatory wrap-up post of those songs I've played most during the month when Luka Modrić won the Ballon d'Or and then turned up in Neighbours.

Grip Plyaz - Big Ballin' (2008)
Trel Itz A Hit - Cuffin' Flippas (instrumental) (2018)
BlocBoy JB - Sticcs (2018)
The Egyptian Lover - 5¢ Camel Ride (2018)
Delegation - Oh Honey (1977)

Other notables: Atlanta was by far the best of the 3 new songs on 70th Street Carlos' 777 album thingy; DaBoii's Back On My Shit would make a good B-side to Onna Gang; J. Stalin is now the Vice-era Gavin McInnes of Rap; LOL @ Fat Tone's daughter ripping Yung Cat; I was gonna peep that new The-Dream triple album people are saying is a return to form until I saw a song called Super Soaker and just couldn't bring myself to press play.

Annual Christmas Blowie

Yea aiight, bitch, don't forget the brussel sprouts!

Think you're barking up the wrong Xmas tree there, Blueface. 'Tis the season of the festive siccness, and today's the day for a repost of Kurtis Blow's Top Of The Tops performance of Christmas Rappin'. This clip comes from a January 1980 episode of TOTP which proves that, much like a puppy, a Legit Jam™ is for all year round not just for Christmas.

Excuse me, Mr. Blow... one question, please:

Merry Christmas from ya host Fiddy Pudding.

A Muppet Christmas Carlos

"Ain't no beefin', I got bread let's make a sandwich
We got gon' slang them bitches 'til the last man standin'"

70th Street Carlos ft. WNC Ram Bam - Atlanta
(From 777 album; 2018)

Twist that wig like Kermit's crew, it's my favourite of the new songs on 777. But what's the deal with Ding Dong being on the album when it was already on last year's Bang 2 EP? Shoulda given the best Carlos loosie of 2017 a second wind instead:

"Leave a n*gga with holes in his body like a hamper
Bitch, I be in that wood like I'm a camper"

70th Street Carlos - Bag It Up
(From t'internet; 2017)

The major criticism of 777 is that Alamo Records fucked up and put the quiet-arse unmastered version of Do That on there. Mr Bassman must have been on vacation that day, but never fear because you can find the proper version that's thick like Mississippi mud on my Carlos loosies playlist.

The Poor Elementz: A.C The Program Director

A new series dedicated to various 4 elementz survivalists polluting t'internet who make Dart Adams seem like one of the DGB guys. For doz who've slept, allow me to introduce A.C The Program Director.

Who dat: Wee Man from Jackass-looking L.A troglodyte who KRS One kicked out of the Temple Of Hip Hop for being too insane. A.C suffered some sort of severe head injury in the early 90s which somewhat explains his retardation.

Greatest quotes: "When 2Pac died I said to the homies ‘let's go get Ice Cube!!’"

Key beefs: KRS One; Ice Cube; people with "earbola"; Stones Throw Records; Robbie Unkut; anyone who doesn't subscribe to his patented Hip Hop Philosophy.

Notable opinionz: insisting race doesn't exist; declaring that Dooley O is this century's best rapper; claiming a club night is "not a real hip hop jam" if the DJ plays songs people already know; opining that producers aren't real unless they can indulge in an impromptu beatbox battle.

Claims to fame: calling up Jay-Z on The Wake Up Show and telling him he needs to "try harder"; making those REAL HIP HOP IS NOT ON THE RADIO t-shirts DJ Premier wears; bragging that he sleeps on top of his record crates; spamming the Unkut.com comment section for years.

Other eccentricities: thinks everyone should drive solar power cars; possible owner of the world's largest collection of 3/4 length cargo shorts.

Cuffin' Season

Trel Itz A Hit - Cuffin' Flippas (instrumental)
(From Trel Itz A Hit's archives; 2016/the internet; 2018)

Bet you ain't never heard the Cuffin' Flippas beat in its full glory before. Me either, tbf.

The Bout It Bout It of Beserker-Bounce™ or wot? Bitch, we in that swamp water like Will Wheaton. Shout out to Whop Bezzy's "I got cheese in my pocket like between my toes" line, but the first song WNC ever recorded with Trel Itz A Hit back in early 2016 knocks harder as an instrumental dunnit?

Added this to my best rap songs of 2018 post. Two instrumental jams in my year-end list like it's 1984.
