Miami Vice

I recently went through my dvd collection and came across my favorite cop show from the 80’s…Miami Vice. This show was the shit dead up. I mean what more could you ask for in a cop show? Guns, Drugs, fly girls, flashy suits, exotic cars, Mysteries and Murders… every episode was like a mini michael bay/Jerry Bruckheimer action flick worthy of being a 4 or 5 star action movie, not to mention the fact that Miami vice also had the best sounds from the 80’s. Miami Vice paved the way for great action dramas like New York Undercover which by the way was my favorite police drama of the 90’s. Now im not going to pretend like I can do this epic series any justice with this single post, because that’s just not possible. Instead I chose to use this post as an eye into the past that will allow my fellow colleagues to specify further into the reasons why Miami Vice was one of the greatest shows ever.Check a piece from one of the best 2-part episodes Calderone’s return, where Calderone puts out a hit on Crockett and shakes up the precinct….stay tunned there is more to come… HHTT approved..

Mainsouth 1990

20 years ago I was almost 8…not a care in the world…life as a kid was great…5 dollas in my pocket feelin rich like gates…hit eagles market so fast… its like id skate…put my money on the counter…I didn’t even wait… and said… gimme all your johnny appleseeds and alexander the grapes……1990

Man those were the days weren’t they? You see for those who don’t know, ferrara pan was the king of the boxed candies circa 1990.

For every kid in my hood there was a specific flavor, some preferred the luxuriously sour lemon heads, others liked the sweet and tangy johnny appletreats (one of my personal favs), some would see how many of the cinnamon flavored “Red hots” they could eat at one time, but for every palate there was a delightfully decadent flavor waiting to be discovered. You see as kids, Brotha Men and I, were somewhat of philanthropists if you will. We sampled candies as if they were fine wine. Explaining the pro’s and cons of each variety and giving our suggestions to other neighborhood kids. We had it down to a science. We were the only kids I knew that could go into the corner store with $2.50 and come out with a balanced meal including dessert. And it was while we enjoyed these very same meals, that we would look to the older gods with the dookie ropes and pagers and say to each other  “that will be us one day”. Square biz.  Ahhhh…the good ol’ days.

We’re All a Lil Bit Bias…

R.I.P. LENNY BIAS  1963-1986

I recently viewed espn’s 30 for 30 a series that highlights sports greats behind the scenes and away from all the glitz and glamour. The most recent installment featured the late Len Bias. For those of you youngins who are unaware of who exactly Len bias is, I have compiled a few videos for you to get a faint idea of the impact that Len’s life (and death) had on sports… period. LenBias2-1

Physically gifted,and humble, Len was often categorized as a future great of the NBA with the likes of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson. Len’s life was cut short due to his recreational drug use and denied himself the opportunity to ever be known as one of the elite. Sadly it leaves the burning question in my mind “What if….” “what if he got to shine with rob parish and larry bird?” “How good could he have really been?”…. we’ll never know.

Family 1st Show (Sept 17th)

family1st

Sorry this is a little late but I have a month worth of footage that im trying to run through. Family First Entertainment had a show on September 17th @ Tammany Hall in Worcester Ma. They had a line up of  performers that definitely did Worcester hip hop proud. I was actually reminded of the hip hop scene here in the mid and late nineties back when this boricua cat named  J.R. was putting everyone on and giving them a chance to shine. The love was felt that night and I actually felt like everyone was together, the only other cats in the city that I know of that are showing love to local performers are Social Light Sounds ( SocialLightSounds.com ) and DirtNap Entertainment ( Which will be in a upcoming post ) . Stacks Jackson led the way with the Family First Roster halfway through the show and definitely handled their business. HHTT Productions recording artist Prophecy was also on the bill and performed his clever “Alphabet of Girls”, African Dynasty was in the building and performed a variety of songs and definitely entertained the crowd with their high energy stage presence. Doberman Squad laid down some smooth R&B and added a little grit to it when the beautiful songstress was joined by labelmate CHARD. Matt Bastardo took the stage and did well with a presence that most would mistake with arrogance, but I recognize it as him making a stand for Hip Hop music.I’m interested in what else Family First has to offer and HHTT will definitely keep an eye out for them in the near future, shot out to the father and founder of Family First Kqauz for allowing HHTT full access to the event. Good look big homie HHTT APPROVED
