Positive force

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

Finally the decent quality upload of Positive K's Step Up Front video is back on YouTube. Okay, it's not exactly crisp HD TV digital but it's still a billion times better than the unwatchable/unlistenable upload on Positive K's own channel. It doesn't get more 1988 than a rapper & his posse dancing on a rooftop while clad in Dapper Dan clobber and sheepskin coats. The boring but important song deets: produced by Grand Puba, Step Up Front is the first Rap choon to let the Ironside theme sirens ring out, and the 3 Heineken Technique remix where Pos' trades verses with King Of Chill from The Alliance is equally essential. Good things come in twos like boobs.

Some strange happenings on YouTube recently with long-deleted videos reappearing as their original uploads but minus all the old comments from before the videos reappeared.

Night Shift was always my jam. Did Positive K have anything noteworthy after The Skills Dat Pay Da Bills?

I like Good Combination '95 and I'm Still Not Havin' It.

A new Chill Rob G album? 2022 is weird.
