Might be worth checkin' out
Dj aakmael, I heard Caz put in much work rhyming on Ice-Tea's documentary, My man(Mad cats have stated that, Out of all the MC's in the movie who we're asked To rhyme, Caz was by far the best cat to touch the mic, My man, aakmael, Doug Fresh's list of the top MC's of all-time, Kind of mirrors my list too, Though, I would like to add Hollywood as the top MC of all-time because during the 70's, NOBODY COULD ROCK A PARTY BETTER THAN HOLLYWOOD and i have the utmost of
Respect for Mel, Moe and Caz(And, I'm very sure all of those cats would say the same thing about Hollywood being the top MC of all-time, Though, Maybe, Not Mel, My man/LOL.
Caz little 'Nigga' rhyme was funny. Moe Dee diddy he kicked was very technical. I'm a Moe Dee fan!
"Love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or DJ. Everything else stems from that core, that love. With that love, sampling can become a tribute; An expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage. Using the same understanding openly and respectfully can turn DJing into a spiritual participation. It can turn a few hours of selection into essential history; Necessary listening through movement."
they need to do some editing and they better include a good chunk of west coast rap. the west did a lot for rap.
AD, What do you feel the West Coast did for rap, My man(I'm curious, My man/LOL), I have to dis-agree with KRS in regards to the creator of the rhymes, 'Throw your hands in the air', and 'Say Ho', The creator of those rhymes we're Hollywood during the early 70's(Not Cowboy and Mel, Though, Cowboy and Mel probably we're the first cats to spit those rhymes in the Bronx, But, Hollywood was spittin the rhymes, 'Throw your hands in the air and Say Ho', In 1974 when i first saw
Hollywood rock at Moringside Park on 123rdst and Moringside Drive in Harlem and Hollywood was the first MC on the hiphop circuit in 1971 before hiphop had a name), Sometimes the mis-information can come out via cats who we're not there to see things happen(No dis-respect to KRS who is more than a few years younger than me), Along with the mis-information coming out via cats who we're not old enough to travel to other parts of New York to know what was going on via
The hiphop circuit(Exhibit A:Cats could have been the first to create this or that around they're way, But, For a cat to state that he was the first to do this or that without traveling all-over New York to see what was going on in different boroughs of New York city during the 70's is mad far-fetched and i have the utmost of respect for Cowboy and Mel(Who was one of the first cats from the Bronx to rock throwdowns in Queens in the fall of 1979 at the Fantasia in Jamaica,Queens,
Though, Lovebug Starski was the very first cat from the Bronx to rock in Queens a few weeks before Mel and Flash during the fall of 1979(Around the time, 'Rapper's Delight', Came out, Lovebug Starski rocked at the Fantasia a few weeks before Mel and Flash(Disco Bee and Easy Mike we're also down Flash and Mel that night in regards to helping Flash and Mel with the many crates of plates that Flash brought to the spot in a gypsy cab at that/LOL, Now i'll give Creole
(Furious 5), Credit for being the creator of the rhymes, 'Yes, Yes', Y'all in 1976(When the Furuous 5 we're the Furious 3 which we're Cowboy, Mel and Creole in 1976, Before Ness/Scorpio was put down in 1977 and Raheem was put down in 1978, Raheem stepped from the Funky 4 to get down with the Furious 5 in 1978, On the
Low, During the fall of 1979, The Furious 5 kind of broke up(For a few), Because Ray Chandler(Former Manager of the Furious 5 during the mid 70's to early 80's) Was jerking cats with the money(That's why whenever Flash would rock in Queens/Fantasia, Le'Chelet, IS8, Etc, Flash only brought Mel and not the rest of the cats, Also, The Furious 5 was once the Furious 7(Kurtis Blow and Kool Kyle we're down with the Furious 5 during a very short span during the summer of 1979).
