James Taylor – Fire & Rain

Just yesterday monring they let me know you were gone….Fire & Rain is one of James Taylor’s biggest hits. The song was written during his addiction to drugs and after hearing news of a close friends passing. Music sometimes is often best created when the artist has to go deep within themselves, sometimes even reaching rock bottom.  When I hear this song I think of a close friend no longer here, no not a friend a brother. I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain b, RIP ROB V see you soon bHere is the live version with a very young James as seen below

Brother Menelik (Av) – Sell Drugs (Cocaine)

Ima sell cocaine/ get a gold chain/ 4 piece rang (ring)/ and a gun that go bang/ (bang bang, sell cocaine)

Av Cocaine

Another track from the Hot Dogs & Coke (Coney Island Shit) Mixtape recorded at T’s studio. When I heard the Madlib beat I fell in love and decided to spit some crack over it, T mixed in some sick samples and we made a classic. This track is for my brother who is no longer with us Rob V, I love u bee WRECKING CREW! HHTT APPROVED

Classic track from Pete Rock & CL Smooth, I use to just listen to this track for its dopeness now it has deeper meaning. I never thought how much losing a good friend can eat at you sometimes but now I know. I don’t want to get emotional and shit but on this day I’m going to blow back and reminisce.Pete Rock & C. L.

Brother Menelik & Lex Go Home (Welcome to Worcester)

91-look-up-menelikbuck-lex

I never thought I would be here reminiscing with ya’ll about my youth and where I came from, but damn I never thought I would see 21. Lex and I grew up on 91 Murray Ave in Worcester, Ma, the main south area. We didn’t live in the worst conditions but damn shit wasn’t sweet, drug dealers, prostitutes, feens etc all could be found on our block. We both lived in the Buckingham building on Murray Ave, I on the 5th Floor and Lex on the 1st.  This is my hood and I love where I grew up, when I speak of the “pissy” hallways and broke elevators its all love to my hood. Worcester is a funny place, you got ya gritty spots then beautiful, crack dealers on one side doctors on the other. This is where I’m from and I wouldn’t want it any different. Peace to GBV, Grafton, Plum, Lakeside, Mainsouth, Lincoln Vill, Moutain Vill, Eastern Ave, Upland Gardens, Washington Heights, North High, Burncoat, South, Doherty, Forest Grove, Downtown, Chandler, Newbury, Wellington, Hooper, Belmont, Vernon, Green Hill and any spots I left out.
