Three on a Thursday #115


Manic dash on this week, so the pre-ToT drivel is mercifully short.

We’ve got a fest of hip-hop, with some UK Royalty on mellow hip-hop duty, some slightly more underground beats and a classic from the vaults.


Another week, another beautiful beat from the brain of Pete Cannon. Do What We Wanna melds floating guitars with a neck snapping drumline to give us another epic track.

A beat this good has bought out the best of the UK (and the US), with Jehst & Del the Funky Homosapien, and longtime blog favourite Dr Syntax provided laid back bars. BBQ anyone?

Sticking with the hip-hop theme, but shifting the tempo up some, Give It Some is appropriately named.

Setting out the stall with a wash of 80’s drums and a wicked little guitar lick, DJ Beattrix lays down a belter , which  The Doozer does full justice to.

Try keeping your head still to this one.

HT: The Man Like Moneyshot (again)

Last up this week is making it a three for three on the hip-hop front, but this one is an genuine original from the legend that is Roxanne Shante

Hitting the classic formula of ‘big funk loop with a beat’ – courtesy of Kool G Rap & Large Professor – Brothers Ain’t Shit makes an interesting change from the more common “Bitches and Ho’s” lines that seem to be prevalent in hip-hop these days.
