D-Nice – They Call Me D-Nice (BDP Live On)

Taking out you suckas and you don’t know how I did it!

One of my biggest influences in the game hands down is the TR-808 aka D-Nice. D had the swag fo real b, he had that cool flow. Working on new music makes me realize how much I want to honor cats like D-Nice. A lot of my style is from this man right here, what they taught I learned b.D-Nice Rocks The House is the prequel to They Call Me D-Nice, teaming  a young Nice up with Scott La Rock which would eventually be the ticket to Nice landing his solo deal. Scott La Rock  helped D develop his skill and would serve as a mentor/brother/friend up until his tragic passing in ’87.Peep a young D-Nice, KRS-ONE and DJ Scott La Rock (BDP) Circa ’86BDP Live on RIP Scott La Rock

BDK Trailer

It has recently been brought to my attention that the folks from Lyricist Lounge will be releasing a documentary about the Hip-Hop Icon Big Daddy Kane entitled simply BDK.  Below is the trailer, expect it to be released by the summer. 

The video below was taken from  the always creative Prince Paul and Kane’s 1999 collaboration on the A Prince Among Thieves album entitled Macula’s Theory.  “If you got 36 prostitutes and 30 cents in your pocket, Whatchu Got?  Proof that Hoes come a dime a dozen baby” 

BDP – By All Means Necessary

One of the most powerful albums of all time in HIP-HOP would have to be BDP’s “By All Means Necessary” released in 1988. The cover alone is sick, I love the playoff of Brother Malcolm’s picture. When I heard “My Philosophy” I was shocked that a group so raw would have such a positive message. BDP was rugged looking as all hell but gave a proactive message to many ghetto youths, not a message of destruction but a message of rebuilding. Pick up this album if you love hip-hop, Scott La Rock live on.

 

I’m nice, here is a track off the LP “My Philosophy”
