Shaquille O’Neal – (I know I got) Skillz

You can front on Shaq if you want but when he first came out he came hard. I remember when I was young I thought Shaq was dope and today I still think so but in a slightly different way. Now I understand the genius which is Shaq, with lines like “cream you like cheese spread you on my bagel” you cant go wrong. Def Jef on the feature holds his own but Shaq is the true star here, the beat has a west coast feel and Shaq attacks it relentless. Who else you know punch the Statue of Liberty in the stomach and don’t  give a heck! HHTT APPROVED E.T. Extra Tallams Shaquille O\’Neal – (I know I got) Skillz

Jeru The Damaja – Come Clean

“When da east is in the house you should come up quick”

1994 deserves just as much respect as ‘95 in my opinion, the music was a lil darker but still as dope. This is my older brothers shit once again, I can think back looking at the cover in amazement. I put on the DJ Premier laced track “Come Clean” and almost broke my neck! I must have played that track 40 times while dubbing it on tape with the tissue paper in the top holes (thats how we made tapes back in 95, Lex know!). Then when the video emerged it was over, the water torture scene!! C’mon! peep this classic HHTT ‘94 bee Yo Charles, this ones for you. I must also note the impact of The Sun Rises in the East at the time, the shit was revolutionary and some of Jeru’s best work ever.Jeru The Damaja – Come Clean

MENACE TO SOCIETY

menace_ii_society

like boyz in the hood this movie changed my life. that could be contributed to the similarities i had with the film and my life at the time. Starring Tyrin Turner Larenz Tate and Jada Pinkett Smith this gritty inner city film  depicted life in the streets in its rawest form. This hughes brothers film wanted to give movie goers a glimpse of what it was like trying to survive the mean streets of south central LA in watts and the jordan downs district. What most people dont know is that originally Tupac Shakur was cast to play the part of O-dog, but after assaulting director Allen Hughes he was replaced by Larenz Tate. I must admit i would have loved to see 2pac as o-dog but LT did a good job. So the stage is set with Tat lawson( Samuel  L .Jackson) as caines dad when caine (Tyrin Turner)as a youngster, witnesses his father murder a man…. take a look

after losing his parents to prison and drugs Caine ,now a young man,is a high school graduate without a clue of what he is to do next in life. Consequently, a trip to the store for beer with O-dog  suddenly turns him into an accomplice  to murder and armed robbery. Caine is then given the oppurtunity to  leavethe hood-life and his boys O-dog ,Stacey (Ryan Williams) and Sharif,(Vonte Sweet) behind and start over in Atlanta with the seductively sexy Ronnie (Jada Pinkett smith) ….whats a man to do.

the track by mc eiht in this film literally takes me back to bein a misguided teen but in an oddly soothing and reminiscent way….it makes me happy about my decisions as a teenager and how everything turned out
