UGK-"One Day" (1996)

Yuh. One more jam outta Houston for ya'll.

This one's for Pimp C.
(December 29th, 1973 - December 4th, 2007)

This song features a sick Isley Brothers sample. My boy "Spook" tipped me off to this dope track. I should take a pic of and post his old Three Six Mafia tapes and old-school UGK shit he say he got.

Houston gonna always keep it soooo real.

Geto Boys-"Do It Like a G.O." (1990)

It's easy to see how this rap group got Rick Rubin's attention enough to remix their first album back in 1990.

This is most likely the earliest example of a rap group sampling a line from Scarface. "Don't fuck wit' me..." I'd like to see anyone show me someone using that shit before 1990.

Houston, you've kept it toooooo real since back in the day.

*My Houston series will be concluded soon.

E.S.G.-"Swangin n Bangin'" (1995)

No, not that ESG. This is the rapper from Houston, not the sisters (plus Tito on congas) that play minimal funk from the south Bronx.

From the 1995 album Sailin' Da South-

Houston has been keepin' it real for sooooo long now.

Peep the one sentence Wikipedia has to say about this album.

I first heard this one on a mix by a local DJ named Young Doc Gooden a few years back. Damn, I'm getting old.

Here's the original off of 1994's Ocean of Funk-

And one more version, Chopped and Screwed-

Z-Ro-"That's the Type of Nigga I Am" (2009)

From the 2009 album "Cocaine"-

Houston keeps it sooooo real.

DISCIPLINE @ Rubber Gloves

This is a new DJ night from Andrew(Lychgate), Kate (Whole Body + cool chick) and Shane(Corporate Park). I'm excited about this and really wish i didn't have previous engagements preventing me from attending. It should be a regular thing at Rubber Gloves on Thursdays whenever there isn't a show booked. I hope to catch the next one on the 30th...

John Lydon & Afrika Bambaata-"World Destruction" (1984)

Big up to my homegirl K-FAL for tippin' me off to this jam yesterday, or was it the day before yesterday. I don't know.....

What a collaboration. The synths, the beat, the vocals, and the message are all too dope.

Arranged by Bill Laswell and featuring Bernie Worrell.

Money Boy vs Soulja Boy-"Turn My Swag On"

Damn. I can't believe I let not having the internet turn my swag off for a WHOLE MONTH. No bloggin, no Smoot tube, no checking my gmail and bank account daily.......just been watching The Wire, Twin Peaks, and the worst available jamz on RedBox......

Well here's my intro back into the game...

A Youtube expert friend of mine called Money Boy "Our generation's RAED"-but i didn't realize that was a generation ago?.....

And here's the original:

I can't figure out which one i like better.
