    Yes, Shock-G is the highlight of Thug Angel. I love that he always does his part to share the real 2Pac with the world. So many naive people think he's this angry gangsta rapper on Deathrow. He has some hard, relentless songs, but they don't compare to what his music as ultimately about.

    'Suicide Squad 2'

    Good. I'm looking forward to it. I know it got mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed it. Hopefully the sequel will take it from good to great.

    Get Lit

    I think everything I think has already been shared. I love the subject matter of the song. I think hyped EDU music takes away from the lyrics and feeling of any song though. It distracts from the actual intention of the song. I agree that a studio version that is properly mixed will do the song proper justice. I prefer classic Hip-Hop from Will, but I still enjoy this kind of thing. I just want to have enough of his classic sound with the new music to appreciate what he did with this track. Jazzy's scratching is one of the highlights to me, and not just because I'm a fan. It takes the track a step back closer to Hip-Hop. I think it was wise for FP to put this video out. The cellphone videos muffled the sound so much. This helps isolate his vocals some. I think he needs to put a single out now though. The attention on this song is pretty impressive considering all we had was cellphone quality concert videos to document it. After the "Fiesta (Remix)" only had a short lived buzz, I think he missed some opportunities. He needs to milk this, even if an album isn't coming yet.
  5. This is pretty funny, Will's part, specifically.
  6. I love that this post is still buzzing from the performance. I'm SOOOOOOO hoping I get the chance to meet them when the US date(s) comes. I've seen them perform before, but not a full length concert. I like that they put that official video for "Get Lit." You can hear the lyrics better since the bass overpowers all of the cellphone videos. A lot of articles were talking like "Get Lit" was a JJ+FP song. In the sense that Jeff scratches on it, that's true, but I'm assuming he didn't produce it. The wording he used when he shared the video seemed like he was trying to clarify that this was ultimately one of Will's songs. I felt like FP wasn't posting about the concerts as much initially, so I like that he started to once they had them. It shows that he was really proud of them. I totally love Brakes' shirt too. I like all of their logos. The one they used for the first three albums is nostalgic to me. It's not necessary the most clever, but it reminds me of a my childhood. I like the Homebase font and Code Red logos equally. I feel like I'd want a shirt with the Hombase group font on the chest and the Code Red logo large on the back. I'm rambling. I'm still so happy that my favorite group of all time recently rocked shows after such a long time from doing it.
  7. Welcome to the forum, Dave! The jokes in that ET article cracked me up. You put Will with Jeff and he instantly becomes hilarious. I love the LL was the one who gave him the nudge and I love that he's got the bug. Good things are going to come of these shows.

    DEF SQUAD - Ya'll N****s Aint Ready El Nino (1998) Probably my favorite Def Squad song, and this white boy can't even sing the chorus. :-P
  9. Thanks for sharing that, Julie. Loved reading every moment of it!
  10. I love everything that's going on right now. LOL The clips of the show look fun. I know the NEVER do the actual performance justice. I also know that performing live definitely will grab a hold of Will. More shows will follow. I'm surprised he did "Boom! Shake The Room." Don't get me wrong, it's a fine song, but he doesn't like that song and I wouldn't consider it one of their strongest. I guess it's because it was such a huge international hit. It is a good opener. I'm glad "Brand New Funk" and "I Wanna Rock" were in there, as well as the singles that made the medley. I expected the Will Smith solo songs that were selected would be there, though I'd personally replace "Men In Black" with something else. I know it has to be there for the mainstream fans. While my personal taste would be to hear a class Hip-Hop song, "Get Lit" is a unique club banger that can cater for today's top 40 fans. My favorite part was seeing all of the pictures of you guys on social media. I was geekin' out over those pictures. I expect to hear more details from everyone who went. They'll hold me over until I get to catch a show.
  11. I'm desperately waiting for updates. All I've seen is the pic Jeff put up on Facebook.

    life of the forum

    The only reason I don't check the board daily is because there are so few replies. It's kind of discouraging to make a post that you think a few people will find interesting, but then there's no dialogue. lol
  13. http://ew.com/music/2017/07/05/tupac-prison-letter-madonna-breakup-race/ Tupac prison letter reveals race was major factor in his split from Madonna Dave Quinn Posted on July 5, 2017 at 10:27pm EDT Patrick McMullan via Getty Images In 2015, Madonna made headlines when she admitted she had dated rapper Tupac Shakur years before his death. Now, an uncovered letter from the late star to the pop icon reveals race was a big factor in their breakup. On Wednesday, TMZ published portions of a previously unseen letter Tupac penned while at the Clinton Correctional Facility, where he was serving time on sexual abuse charges. Tupac is incredibly candid in the note — dated Jan. 15, 1995, 4:30 a.m. and addressed simply to “M” — often expressing his sorrow for their breakup and admitting he waited a long time to write the note because he was “struggling to find all the answers” so that he “wouldn’t leave any unanswered questions.” “For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting,” Tupac wrote. “But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my ‘image’ I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was.” “I never meant to hurt you,” he added. There are multiple apologies to Madonna throughout the letter and admissions of mistakes Tupac claimed he made. “I must apologize to you because like you said I haven’t been the kind of friend I know I am capable of being,” he said. He explained he was angry after an interview Madonna gave in which she allegedly said, “‘I’m off to rehabilitate all the rappers & basketball players.’” “Those words cut me deep seeing how I had never known you to be with any rappers besides myself,” Tupac wrote. “It was at this moment out of hurt and a natural instinct to strike back and defend my heart and ego that I said a lot of things. …Can you feel me?” “In the time since, as you can see, I have grown both spiritually and mentally,” Tupac continued. “It no longer matters how I’m perceived. Please understand my previous position as that of a young man with limited experience with an extremely famous sex symbol.” Toward the end of the letter, Tupac asked for Madonna’s friendship and gave her some advice — though both items came with an impending sense of doom for the rapper, who would die from wounds inflicted in a drive-by shooting a little over a year later. “I offer my friendship once again, this time stronger and focused. If you are still interested I would like to further discuss this with you but some of it couldn’t wait. I felt compelled to tell you…just in case anything happened to me,” he said. “Please be careful Madonna. Everyone is not as honorable as they seem there are those whose hearts bleed with envy & evil. They would not hesitate to do you harm!” Tupac wrote. “Let my 6 bullets be proof of that!” After signing the letter “Always 2Pac Tupac Shakur,” he added a final request. “I don’t know how you feel about visiting me but if you could find it in your heart I would love to speak face to face with you,” he said. “It’s funny but this experience has taught me to not take time 4 granted.” Four sections from Tupac’s letter were redacted by TMZ. Gotta Have Rock and Roll will auction off the full document between July 19-28, with a starting bid of $100,000. This article originally appeared on People.com

  15. You've seen other Hip-Hop songs that have gotten the Sesame Street music video mash-up. Well, it's Summertime, so it felt necessary to share this...

    LOL! The Laugh Out Loud Thread

    Some of you will be familiar with the 1994 Beastie Boys hit "Sabotage," which had a music video done in the manner of 1970's crime action/drama. Well, here's someone's cut of the video featuring footage from a Sesame Street movie. lol
  18. I love that in this day in age, they actually took time to remember a music video. I hate that music videos are so overlooked, and often underdone these days. This took me back to a great time in life.
  19. I was randomly looking online and came across this new remix of "Summertime." While it's not an authorized remix, the talent of the producer and sound quality is professional. They don't try to reinvent the wheel either. It's classic, yet freshened up. It's also free. Check it out. http://monkeyboxing.com/content/dj-jazzy-jeff-fresh-prince-summertime-rhythm-scholar-remix-2017-free-download/ Summertime (Rhythm Scholar Remix) Summertime (Rhythm Scholar Remix Edit) Summertime (Rhythm Scholar Dubber Madness Mix) Summer Madness (Rhythm Scholar Remix) *Kool & The Gang

    Whenever I see unathorized remixes, I'm always skeptical. I was truly impressed by this. It might as well be official.
  22. I was on ebay looking for some 11x17 posters to fill a small space between the door frame and the corner of the room and found this unofficial JJ+FP black light poster. The press is reasonable, so I figured I'd share. The seller has countless other posters of classic Hip-Hop artists...LL Cool J, Heavy D, Queen Latifah, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Salt-N-Pepa, A Tribe Called Quest, KRS-One, De La Soul, NWA, etc. It looks like I'm going to have to install a black light in the music room now. http://www.ebay.com/itm/DJ-JAZZY-JEFF-FRESH-PRINCE-11x17-Black-Light-Poster-/251000534130

    rest in peace prodigy of mobb deep

    I gotta be honest. I was never really into Mobb Deep. When they first came out, I remember liking of the songs that they made music videos for, but ultimately they never kept my interest. That being said, I pray for his family, friends, and fans.

    Movement on Bad Boys III

    It's not necessarily a bad thing for him to get Aladdin done. It's a guaranteed hit. Bad Boys will be another one. I kind of wish Bay was on Bad Boys though. I'm not film critic. I know he has a very mixed reputation among movie fans, but I Bad Boys is an area where he excels. I think he contributed a lot to the look and feel of the films. If he's not doing it, they need someone who will capture something similar.
