Breakestra


I picked this up today in a local store in the bargain bin, and hot damn! It's Stones Throw Records' own Breakestra. I also found Brand Nubian's "Slow Down" De La Soul with production by Jay Dee on "Stakes Is High," which makes it my 3rd copy of that track and the 4th if you count another Jay Dee Remix! Also got some old Pete Rock and CL Smooth with "Straighten It Out." Not bad for 5 minutes at a small little joint and a total of $17. Everything was $4 and under. They also had some Slum Village and Common, but I already had the 12" singles. Anyways check out the Breakestra track at the Stones Throw website. Although the A side is pretty solid, check out the B side with "Remember Who You Are" It is a keeper for sure, funky as hell!

Got It


I finally figured out what this song was all about.... Read the quotes in the description on youtube for this one. I never knew what happened with Baatin.

RIP.

Substantial


I have been trying to find this song in every record store I have ever been to in Japan and I have never seen it. If you know anyone that has it please hit me up I need this shit. This song has always made my head bob no matter the mood or time of day/night. I still have a few more stores to hit up so I am for now keeping my fingers crossed!

Japan!!


I will be heading to Japan in the next week or so, I have a gig on the 19th at Club Buddah, and I have been trying to get some stuff together recently. I am thinking about doing a Madlib/Dilla hour or so then get the 90's classics popping off after that. I am so excited, hopefully I can record what I have been thinking of doing and put it up on here later today. I will keep you posted!

Much Love,
Richie
