Dead Presidents

dead_presidentsdp2

“Hey brotha, you wanna get the mans foot off your kneck?”   this Hughes brothers classic from 1995 follows the life of a young teen graduating from high school ready to face the world during a turbulant vietnam war era. Rather than getting  off on a stereotypically racial standpoint the Hughes brothers focused more on the becoming of a man for young Anthony Curtis(larenz tate). The movie does a good job keeping with the 1960’s and 70’s feel, strongly due to one of the best soundtracks ever made and the simple visuals of classic cars and such. Though the filming can be summed up as average the thing that makes this movie a classic is the dialogue. DP is def the most quotably pleasing movie I have ever seen. Keith David, Chris Tucker, Bokeem Woodbine and even Therance Howard provide some of the best quotes ever. for example Kirby(keith david) has some of the most reusable quotes like “Thats y’alls muthafuckin punkass friend” and “thats uncle sam for ya, money ta boyn(<-thats not a typo thats how he says it lol) bokeem provides my favorite with the powerful”Hey doc Shut the Fuck up ya don’t know shit”and the comical chris tucker; rules one of my favorite seens with the ever so funny”now say some mo shit!! i’ll knock yo ass right back down… fake ass, wannabe preacher, no members havin muthafucka!!!!” ahahaaha oh the laughs. I love this movie hands down. If you haven’t seen it or just haven’t seen it lately… watch it, and see if you dont come away quoting somethin from it…..

this clip contains two of my favorite parts in the whole movie…enjoy

I Should Tell ya Momma on You – Red (The Man Without The Machine)

A few months back my brother Lex(http://lexluthor34.com/2009/05/01/im-back/) put me on to a homeless man out in Cali who is crazy nice at the art of beatboxing.  Sure enough he has since rerecorded his material with the help of Stones Throw and it’s now available for download on itunes.  Red, The Man Without the Machine’s first single, I Should tell ya Momma on You, with remixes by CHOPS and Dam-Funk, dropped July 23rd.

Drug Dealer, Drug Dealer – Brother Menelik (AV)

“Got a gun named Mandela and the clip full Nelson/ Scope from the soviets, we call it Boris Yeltsin”

Drug Dealer, Drug Dealer is a throwback to another era the wally era if you will, one that is fond to everyone here at HHTT (H2T2) and is often romanticized about when we  build.  We are all true 80’s babies who came of age in the late 80’s/early 90’s and we were all sponges keeping our mouths shut while our ears and eyes stayed wide open, taking it all in.  Av (Brother Menelik) was no exception, coming up in certain sections of Worcester this song was and still is his reality, bowdown to the Main South King, Brother Menelik.

Spit Supreme – Stayin’ Up

“Its Mass, city of Worcester”

supremebodega-281x375

I love being from Worcester, we have so much good music coming out the city right now its hard not to take notice. I have known Spit Supreme for years now and can honestly say he has paid his dues in this rap shit. Supreme flows effortlessly over the 88 Keys beat and flips it nicely in his own fashion, much props. What up Butcher’s Block! Download Spit Supreme – Stay Up
