Rare Joints from the Notorious Biggie Smalls

Alright, first up is this joint off of Tracey Lee’s debut 1997 album, Many Facez which featured a couple verses from the Notorious B.I.G.  Coincidentally The Buchanans flipped the same sample six years later for Jay-Z on What More Can I Say off The Black Album.

Keep Your Hands High – Tracey Lee Feat. Biggie Smalls

Next up is a personal favorite of mine which got much play on the old boombox, taken from Funkmaster Flex’s 60 Minutes of Funk Volume 2.  This one if you’ve never heard it is a must-have, featuring The Lox & Biggie over RZA‘s classic C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) instrumental.

Biggie & Lox Freestyle Funk Flex

Big was the shit on R & B jams too which is evident on this Jermaine Dupri & Da Brat heater for the Bad Boys Soundtrack in 95.  B-I-G glides effortlessly over that polished So So Def production like no other, plus the classic Gap Band sample ties it together oh so smoothly.

Da B-Side – Da Brat & Jermaine Dupri Feat. Notorious B.I.G.

What happened between 2pac and Biggie was truly a shakesperian-like tragedy, one time friends turned enemies over petty disputes and miscommunication.  Two icons that propelled each other to heights unseen in Hip-Hop before and probably will never be seen again.  Listening to the original version of Runnin (not Eminem’s 2003 remix) makes me wonder what a Pac/Big reunion would’ve sounded like in 2010.  “Nothing sadder in life than wasted talent”

Love Come Down Remix – Dirty Money Feat. Jim Jones, Fabolous & Red Cafe

New remix of Love Come Down by Dirty Money featuring appearances from Jim Jones, Fabolous & Red Cafe.  Hopefully Last Train to Paris can hold a candle next to Diddy’s last joint Press PlayLove Come Down Remix – Dirty Money Feat. Jim Jones, Fabolous & Red Cafe

For My Ladies – Ron Browz Feat Diddy

Even though I know I’ll be sick of this by the end of the week, it’s still kinda hot right now.  For My Ladies by Ron Browz & Diddy will more than likely pop up on Ronalds upcoming Etherboy album later this year.  It’s good to see Browz back on his autotune after Hov said the shits wack, it still doesn’t mean shit to the ladies.

Just in case you missed the remix to Browz Gimme 20 Dollars.

Must Be Love – Cassie Feat. Diddy

The hottest chick in the game Cassie links up with Diddy, look for this record to appear on Cassie’s sophmore album due this summer.  As for Must be Love it’s that classic R&B/Hip-Hop collab that made Bad Boy famous way back when.  Download/Stream—>  http://www.zshare.net/audio/569675347643c26e/

Shark Attack Time Baby – Ian Edwards

I first saw Ian Edwards back in the day when he was on Def Comedy Jam, he has also been a writer on Saturday Night Live, MTV’s The Lyricist Lounge and cartoon networks Boondocks.  Below is a clip of Ian doing his thing last year on Diddy’s Bad Boys Of Comedy which had me rolling.

2008 Wrap-Up – Skillz

Reminisce on a crazy year that was 2008 with the always clever Skillz. 

Against the Grain – Sauce Money

Marcy’s own Sauce Money appeared on the first three Jay-Z Albums most notably “Reservoir Dogs” and “Bring it On”  he also Ghostwrote “I’ll be Missing You” for Puff Daddy. 

Below is “Against The Grain” produced by Dj Premier off of the “Soul in the Hole” soundtrack. 

Electoral College (Does a vote count?)

A lot of young people read a Diddy t-shirt and think that if they don’t vote a bullet will release from a chamber into there skull, this is false. Voting is an integral part of our political system but your vote is not the vote that cast our president, the Electoral College determines this. Each state has a body of electors that cast a vote for president, now some of these electors have made promises to vote for certain candidates but in the end it is there final say on who the president and vice will be. Don’t get me wrong our vote does count if it comes to ballots like in Bush vs. Gore, then we play a major factor but this is a rare instance. I have to agree with why not to go with a “popular vote” but I think a lot of our entertainers are confused by the whole political machine period. Your vote is important but in the end it really wont count, the electors for each state will make there decision based on there own feelings period. Politrix is a bitch huh?
