"Good Night 2008"

Well we are finally here!!! Can I get a "What you talking about"? *Crowd Response: Get Off the stage you bum* What? Excuse you, do you you not know that violence is never a must...unless it is a must. *Man, I don't car... what no...arghhhh* Another corn chopped by John Q's sword. Now where was I (or Him)? Oh yeah, this is the last post of the year *All hands go up in the air like people look like they give a damn (The town needed the Damn to block cursing).*

Anywho, This will be a short (or long, let's see how John feels today *Q: He does not look too well*, well then Q tell John that we about to party like is 19__ and if he does not shape up, then he will be...given a raise (I don't even make no Luchini)). Funny, You suppose that this post would be a 2-Double O-8 wrap up, but I already peeked at my New Year's Present, so forget about it (but I still rememeber that... *FORGET ABOUT THAT*.

Where am I going with this finale post of the year? I does not know and I am not sure John is fair (It's the middle of the week). You know, here is whats I am going to do. Since everybody, and the mamas mamas and baby mamas, have done a write up to end the year, John is going to flip like a newly opened pack of soap and preview what is to come in 2-Double O-9 (HINT: CHANGE)

I, along with Guy, will be doning some more review post album post because...um...it seems that is only time people actually drop by our never-ending party (unless it is Sunday, then the party takes a pause, but it can it be never-ending? Yes, because the party does not stop until it starts (Think I am giving up Sunny D or Kool-Aid, Well, then you are more delusional than Dallas Cowboy players (Sh*t, T.O. is cancer in the Dallas Cowboys breast, Dont ask me why Im motherf*ckin stressed, Things Done Changed (Listening to a lot of Reay to Die, lately (Goodness, Gracious, John Q hopes that Notorious Movis is decent).

So what elese can we expect in the 2-Double O-9, you know that same good stuff that makes you feel That John Q cat is not half bad (But am I half-good? (better than being half-sinbad...um..I mean half-sinner, yeah that's whats I means to talls yous peoples abouts)).

So, Here is what you can expect from the immediate future of Lyrics to Go (Said In Tip Manner):

12 Inch Drops of:




































































(See the Theme *No* Well, then Wait till the Ball Drops on the Post (Cleever, John, Cleever)).

&

Album Review (Aka Super Post) of:















So, peace to the nation, the people that represent, and those
cats that never bug out to the extreme

Yo, If word is bond
then Q Moves On

And oh yeah, what elese did I Forget about the 2-Why Two Zeros-9, Oh Yeah:



































Like Sam Cooke (One of the Greatest Singers of all time) said, A Change is Gonna Come (And It Did)!!!

Slum Village - Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1 [The Samples]

"This sh.. it's for.... It's Fantastic, neva test the "S", It's Fan-Tas-Tic" With These exerpts from the Opening Track from Slum Village's Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1, the masses were introduced to trio who had a sound unqiue to them at a time when that meant something. Staying on point (all the time Phife), Slum Village's debut album takes the listener into hold you down fort in the D (Conant Gardens, to be specific) and what goes down in Detriot. They Had the sound of what A Tribe Called Quest seemed to progressing towards (or looking for), but the subject matter had calling card common amongst Hip-Hop: Women, Wealth, and Breaking rules that have been there for quite some time. But the focus of this post is the other-wordly soundscape that these cats operate within. Credit for this soundscape is due to Jay Dee (AKA J Dilla), a young producer at the time who worked with Tribe and Pharcyde on there albums and would soon go on to reach the pantheons of Hip-Hop Pproducers (People, no easy feat for one attain). Jay Dee had a sound that so much soul with drums NOBODY could replicate and he seemed to create a new sound altogether that would have the hip-hop scene buzzing over Jay Dee and Slum Village with their unique sound. This album has a sparse, sort drown out sound drums that hit and the Dilla's production sounds as if they cut off the album in a sessions that could last for days. The samples on the album range from obsceure Soul tracks to the obvious to Jazz tracks that may raise your eye a bit or two.


Look, Dilla had beats to go (Umm... Pun Intended/Not Intended (Choice Is Yours)), so I hope you, the People, appreciate the set Kevin Nottingham of Kevin!Nottingham: This Is Real Hip Hop, and, I (proper english on the blog, now you seen it all), put together. Big Ups to Kevin for setting up the stuff to make this look so good. It was cool doing this sample set so without further ado, here is Slum Village - Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1 [The Samples]:
