    DAWN ROBINSON - I Don't Know Why Dawn (2002)
  4. This is crazy. I've passed over this single 1,000 times and never got it just because there weren't any remixes, instrumentals, etc on it. Now I gotta get this. Thanks for the heads up!
  5. Boom! Shake The Room 95 (Rare)

    Yes, this is from the 1995 UK CD single, which has the same cover to the 1993 in a slim case. The tracklisting is as follows: 1. Hula's Radio Remix 3:35 2. LP Version 3:51 3. Street Remix 4:30 4. Hula's Dub 5:31 5. Club Radio Mix 3:55 6. Mr. Lee's Club Mix 5:02 7. Hula's Extended Remix 6:09
  6. Ms. Afeni Shakur passes away at age 69

    Early Tupac Collaborator Shares Original Version Of “Dear Mama” As far as Tupac‘s most iconic material is concerned, “Dear Mama,” in its showcase of Pac’s softer side, particularly at a time when his character was being eviscerated by the media, stands as something well beyond the musical realm. An ode to his mother, the late Afeni Shakur who passed early this week, “Dear Mama” was a rare glimpse at Pac’s deceptively-sentimental self, particularly at a time when he was locked for an alleged sexual assault, which he fought vehemently against. And while, that tributary has certainly received its fair share of burn over the last few days, and rightfully so, early Pac collaborator, DJ King Assassin, has pulled the veil off the original version of the song, which bears a sample of Ice Cube protege and Lench Mob affiliate Yo-Yo’s line from “This Is A Man’s World.” Listen to the original version of Tupac’s “Dear Mama” below and dig into the the backstory from DJ King Assassin for some context. “The original version of ‘Dear Mama’ was far different than the version that was released, as far as the hook was constructed. Originally, the hook was a sample of a song from the legendary rapper and friend of both of ours named Yo-Yo, from Ice Cube’s [Da] Lench Mob. The sample was ‘Wouldn’t be a damn thang without a woman,’ which was taken from the original song from Ice Cube’s ‘This Is A Man’s World,’ with the scratching done, of course, by yours truly DJ King Assassin. The day after we had finished up on everything we were in Echo Sound in L.A. when Tupac comes in the studio very upset and proceeds to explain to us that we had to take out Yo-Yo’s part because a person by the name of Pat Charbonet would not give us the clearance to use that part in the song, so we had no choice but to take it out and that’s where even the Richard Pryor excerpt, which you will hear, is completely off the released version of the song.” http://www.audiomack.com/song/chadkiser502/dj-king-assassin-presents-2pac-afeni-shakur-dear-mama-og-version
  7. The cassette and vinyl release have a few extended versions as I recall. They also have "Another Special Announcement," which wasn't put on the CD release.
  8. CATCHING UP...

    Hey everyone, I never thought I'd be one of those people who took a break from the board. It wasn't intentional, I just got super buys (and still am). I don't know that I've really been here all year. To sum things up, I was working on a show the first two months of the year. More recently I did a small part in another show, which we're also doing out of town in a few weeks. Life has been a mix of good and bad. I'm still stuck in my awful job, which keeps giving me a schedule that makes it hard to live a satisfying life. I'm determined to change that soon, but the direction is foggy, so it's hard to know what steps I want to take. I met this girl a few months ago who I totally fell for and I put it out as we got super close. However, she's in this empty long distance relationship that I was sure she was going to end and hasn't yet. She often shows she wants to take the step, but all I can do is be patient right now, which is maddening. I've been vibing to Arrested Development's two new albums and I've been revisiting Tribe's work since Phife's passing. Things are good, but tough. I constantly feel like I'm on the edge of good changes, but getting frustrated with how much is my responsibility and how much involves patience. I may not be hitting the board every day, but I'll be back. I've been catching up on old posts, so you'll likely late responds from me. I hope things are well with everyone.

    I'm only four minutes into this and that song is crap. Why does he rap in a high pitch, weak voice, and then speak in a natural, deep voice? I can't take this dude seriously. Not sure if I'll peep the rest.
  13. I have this on VHS at my parents' house. I watched and taped this the night it aired!

    BEASTIE BOYS - Body Movin' Hello Nasty (1998)
  15. BIG WILLIE STYLE - CLASSY SPLAT-OW

    I wish he'd do more interviews like this where he's just unguarded and not rehearsed...just talking about common topics that get overlooked.
