“Gama Ray rap, I make the Hulk Snap” – Dave (Plug Two from De La)

Over it’s 2 seasons The Chapelle Show featured many great performances from some of Hip-Hops elite.  One of which that always stood out to me was De La Soul performing the J-Dilla produced Much More off of their 2004 album The Grind Date.  Although DJ Premier didn’t make an appearance,(featured talking shit on the intro to the record) De La still managed to bring Yummy Bingham to help-out on the chorus.  Brilliant minds think alike too, peep Plug Two rocking the Hulk Hand for his verse.Much More – De La Soul Feat. Yummy Bingham & DJ Premier

Big Mouf – De La Soul

It’s good to hear some new music from De La Soul, not to mention the shit is Fiya.

It’s Spring Again – Biz Markie

Everybody knows that nobody beats the Biz, today was a beautiful spring day up here in M.A. and I thought I should honor Biz Mark’s spring classic, It’s Spring Again.  Everytime I hear this record I crack up, don’t even get me started with the video either.  (biz dresses up like Rumplestiltskin)Biz live is always a treat, I saw him open up for De la Soul at the Palladium (worcester)  back in 2001 and Biz ate an entire hot dog with the bun in one giant bite!  Dude could give Joey Chestnutt and Kobayashi a run for their money if he wanted to I’m sure.  I remember Biz singing this Elton John classic on an old Beastie Boys compilation album I had when I was younger.  The video below is Biz performing his  awesome rendition of Bennie and the Jets on the Chris Rock show in the late 90’s.
