Blogger is back! Let me post something before it drops out again.
Check out your boy El Q The GR8’s Yahoo LaunchCast radio stream. I haven’t checked it myself in a minute, but I recently re-discovered it. Everything from hip-hop to classic rock is in here, so only the open minded need listen. Feel free to rate songs and artists and such…but just now that I am watching you! (Please believe it!) I suggest you play this at high decibels, preferably in a residential (or work) area!
The following artists and songs were just played on your LAUNCHcast station.
The Diplomats -Dipset Anthem (Radio) – Featuring Cam’ron & Juelz Santana
Gang Starr-Make ‘Em Pay
Chris Rock- I Loved The Show
Tupac Shakur -Thug 4 Life
Burning Spear – Slavery Days
The Doors – Wishful Sinful
David Banner -Crank It Up
Porno For Pyros – Bad Shit
Dr. Octagon – Bear Witness (Extended Version)
Aaliyah – Come Over (LP Version)
I posted this on BlogCritics while waiting for the Blogger.com crew to stop playing Grand Theft Auto long enough to notice they were becoming the subject of millions on internet jokes. (For the record, I don’t think Blogger sucks..even with the bugs)
As blogs continue to evolve, some focus their energy on highlighting MP3s. In their April 2005 issue, Blender magazine has a bit in their “Digital Music Guide” section called “Audioblogs”. They ran down some of the blogs out right now who brave the waters and give up unauthorized MP3s. I have listed some of them again here, as well as a few that didn’t get mentioned. I will try to make this a regular post here at BC if people seem to dig it.
Don’t walk——->>>>>run to Tofu Hut and download Memphis Minne’s “Dirty Mother For You” and Ruth Brown’s “Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean”. (Shout out to my baby momma’s momma.)
No Frontin’ Just Music has Slim Thug, Mike Jones, and Paul Wall – “Still Tippin’ (Diplo Remix)”, Biggie Smalls-“Real Niggaz” unreleased version and Nas “Doorags among others.
Coolfer has Robbers On High Street’s “Spanish Teeth” and some other decent MP3 links.
So Many Shrimp got so many mp3’s they got iodine poisoned. SXSW stuff, Project Pat, complete mixtapes, “One Thing” video, and Ruff Sqwad’s “Anna” just to name a few.
Soul Sides has some OG material. Check out Kashmere Stage Band’s version of “Scorpio” (snippet)
Props to Ghetto Postage for the Lethal B “FWD Riddim” ft Kardinal link up!
Check out Rap Nerd for tons of mp3s. Beastie Boys -“The Sound of Science”, Organized Konfusion’s “Stress”, a rappers who jacked the Beatles section, Nas & Pitbull
“Imagaine”, De La Soul’s -Simply Having, Pumpkinhead, Block McLeod, Mr. Metaphor: Con Artists , Ill Bill, Jise One, Goretex, Q-Unique on “14 Years of Rap” and a Mos Def section. This guy deserves a medal!
That should keep you busy at work while your boss is away.
