Public Enemy – Rebel Without A Pause

“Yes, the rhythm the rebel without a pause I‘m lowering my level”

 

takes-a-nation

Here we have rap at its finest, something that cannot be denied. What I am speaking of today is Public Enemy’s Rebel Without a Pause. Chuck D is a powerful MC, he drops hardcore political science over funky head rocking drums. The sample is so sick its similar to a tea kettle reaching its peak temperature about to explode then looped over again. Flav does his usual hype man duties but what I cannot ignore is the revolutionary scratching of Terminator X on the cut. X’s cutting on this record really does put the cherry on top and at the time made PE a force to be reckoned with. HHTT APPROVED

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.
