Killy Shoot – Shooter Season (Album)

img_2572After dropping numerous tracks over the last couple of months, Killy Shoot has finally dropped his mixtape. Killy is throwback to 90s gritty east coast rap and you can tell the influence in his music. I have come to really appreciate and respect the raw and gritty style Killy brings, coming out of Worcester, he paints vivid pictures of the city with clever wordplay and dark imagery. Some of the bangers off the album are Fishscale, Respect, On The Run (remix) and Gold Teeth. This dude just sounds so 90s, show support and give it a listen, he definitely is putting in work outta New England.

LeVar Burton (Roots Theory)

Levar Burton is an extremely talented brother and will always hold a special place with me for his role as Kunta in Alex Haley’s ROOTS. I wanted to highlight a few of Levar’s roles after ROOTS and the impact the movie had upon his career. Playing a slave is not always the most glamorous of roles and sometimes can have a lasting effect which was clearly evident w/ Levar.

 Reading Rainbow (The Glory)One of his most popular roles as the host of the award-winning Reading Rainbow, teaching little black boys and little black girls how to read. He did amazing in this role which ROOTS obviously helped him with because we all know when he got off the ship he had great difficulty reading and writing. Levar learned secretly to read and write while on Roots but hell would be to pay once Massa found out later in his career.

Star Trek (The Tragedy)After coming off a highly successful stint w/ Reading Rainbow the world was shocked when we discovered his role on Star Trek. I remember like it was the other day seeing my nigga Levar with them fucked up shades on, blinded by Massa! At first I thought it was cool, you know just having a brother on star trek and all but then I realized the everlasting effects ROOTS had on my brother. It was like some cosmic karma b, he was teaching kids to read a few years back now he on star trek BLIND (well not full blind but he had that low res security camera vision like Robocop, looked blocky like he dream of Lego’s) This just goes to show you, don’t think you gonna disobey Massa and live fruitful b, won’t happen.

Just like I remember street fighter soundtrack and all b

Curtis Mayfield – Little Child Runnin’ Wild

Oh beautiful brother, for real Curtis you was a genius b and today I want to show tribute. Curtis by far is one of my favorite artists of all time, his music speaks to me in a way that is not only tangible but surreal. I’m not going to get into the psychosis of the shit but he created some timeless music and I’m glad i was able to find it when i needed it most b. This song right here is crazy,  the lyrics i could identify with so much and i was a kid growing up in the 80’s b! Painful rip/ In my upper hip/ i guess it’s time/ to take another trip/

Passenger 57 (1992)

In the 90’s Wesley Snipes could do no wrong and the shit was evident in his choice of roles. I mean who would of thought a brother in the air fighting terrorist would still be relevant today?This is 1992

Mortal Kombat (1992)

The game that started it all b, for all my heads who remember on the Sega Genesis abacabb!This is 1992

Candyman (1992)

I Hear you’re looking for Candyman, Bitch!This is 1992
