panther1995_movie_poster

“I forward forward high punch and spit the flame like lui kang burnin your membranes when the wind change” red man and biggie ripped this song to shreds. this is when i loved redman. but every one rips this track to be honest and there has never been much publicity for this track since the movie was a dud.from the 1995 soundtrack “The panther”. It features the Notorious BIG, Coolio, Doodlebug (From the digable planets), Big Mike (From the Geto Boys), Buckshot (From Black moon/Boot camp clik), Redman, Ill al skratch, Rockness (from Heltah Skeltah/Boot camp clik), Bone thugs n harmony, Busta Rhymes, 5th ward and Jamal

High Note – Scarface (Uncut Video)

New uncut video from Scarface off of his latest album Emeritus “High Note” 

25 Lighters – DJ DMD ft. Lil’ Keke & Fat Pat

I’m So Throwed in the Game……Dj Dmd’s “25 Lighters” will keep any party bouncing still to this day, the record dropped in 1999 and was largely overshadowed by Lil’ Troy’s “Wanna be a Baller” which also features Screwed up Click vet. Fat Pat which dropped around the same time.  The H-town movement as it is now, never really solidified untill 2002 when Mike Jones, Paul Wall & Slim Thug dropped Still Tippin, and the rest is history.  peep the uncut below…           HHTT Got the Internet Goin Nuts

Emeritus – Scarface

Scarface dropped Emeritus on tuesday it’s his 9th solo album not to mention various group albums with the Geto Boys and the Product etc. Emeritus which means “retired but retaining an honorary title”  is fittingly going to be Uncle Face’s last album.  The album features Bun B, Lil Wayne, Z-Ro, The Product, Bilal and Wacko of UTP, with production by Cool and Dre, Illmind, Sha Money Xl, Nottz and Jake One amongst others.  Below is the title track “Emeritus”   Official Video for the single “High Powered” where Facemob takes shots at Houston’s Lil Troy (wannabe a baller?)  

Hip-Hop Honors

The Hip-Hop Honors aired last night (10/6/08) and on a scale of 1-10 we gave it about a 7.  Honorees included Cypress Hill, Too Short, Slick Rick, Naughty By Nature, Isaac Hayes and De La Soul

Slick Rick’s segment was off the hook, MC Lyte did over the Ruler’s Back Ghostface and Biz Markie connected for La di Da Di  Spliff Star and Busta Rhymes rocking an eye patch covered The Show  Dana Dane and Fabolous performed  Hey Young World.  The Ruler even found time to perform his classic Children’s Story equipped with back up dancers toting pajama’s and even a bed.  (Ya’ll tucked in?)

De La Soul’s ceremony was equally dope, the introduction was provided by actors Joy Bryant and Michael Rappaport who even admitted that he named his son after Maceo.  Q-tip set it off performing his verse on Roller Skating Jam Saturday, and Estelle singing the hook, next up was Cee-Lo with his rendition of Potholes on My Lawn followed by the Mighty Mos Def and Chuck D of Public Enemy with Stakes Is High. Prince Paul kept it moving behind the wheels,  while EPMD finished up the dedication with Ego Trip and then to cap it off De La performed Me, Myself, and I & Buddy with another appearence from Q-tip to recite his verse from Buddy.

Isaac Hayes was honored by Scarface performing the Geto Boys Classic Minds Playing Tricks on Me which borrowed from Hung Up on My Baby.  Estelle sang the Mary J. Blige classic I Love You which samples Ikes Mood, then Cee-lo came out to perform Isaac’s own Look of Love and Mos Def capped it off performing Warning by The Notorious B.I.G. which sampled Walk on By off of Isaac’s Hot Buttered Soul.

Too Short’s dedication began with Luke Campbell proclaiming how good Short Dawg said the word bitch, Beeyaatch!  Lil’ John, Kid Rock and Bun B went over a few Too Short Tracks, then Scarface came out and performed The Ghetto.  The Pimp himself came out to the beat of Gettin It and with Face they finished Too Shorts dedication off right.

Naughty By Nature was the Final dedication of the evening.  Eve and Tracy Morgan did their Introduction with New Jersey’s own Queen Latifah on the help out.  Wyclef  began it by playing No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley which transitioned smoothly into Ghetto Bastard, here Juelz Santana got twisted up in Treach‘s tricky wordplay and couldn’t keep up with the flow but still did his thing no doubt.  “Arm me with Harmony” was uttered by Big Boi from Outkast then it was on, Sir Luscious Leftfoot recovered Naughty’s dedication nicely and capped it off with a nice lil’ freestyle with Fatha Clef on the Geetar at the end.  Naughty By Nature shut it down coming out to Uptown Anthem and Hip-Hop Hooray to close the show off nicely and leave me wanting a Naughty by Nature T-shirt.
