Can’t quite believe I’ve hit the ton on Three on a Thursday (ok, it would’ve been faster had I not quite been so slack over the last few months)
I didn’t quite expect it to become as popular as it has been, so thanks to those of you who read regularly. Hope you’ve enjoyed the series, and here’s to the next 100!
First up this week is a collaboration between Hip-Hop Royalty – Public Enemy, and one of the best of the modern crop – Brother Ali, with Stand-Up, proving Chuck-D is still at his rabble rousing best after 20 years in the game, and that the longer Brother Ali MC’s the more and more he looks like some sort of Buddhist Ninja Monk …
Warning – the horn line behind this is seriously catchy!
We’re in the midst of a serious heatwave in the UK at the minute, or as many in Europe would call it, ‘summer’. As such I thought the Tom Showtime boot of Coldcut’s Tru Skool, or more specifically the Roots Manuva vocal, to give us Cooler Than Cool.
I love me a bit of throwback Golden Era style hip-hop, hope you do to (course you do, why would you be hear, else?)
