    Busy Bee Releases Classic Hip-Hop Recordings

    By EbenGregory

    Date: 1/11/2007 3:40 pm

    Hip-Hop pioneer The Chief Rocker Busy Bee and Urban Gold Music recently released The History Of Hip Hop Volume One, the first release in a 10-CD compilation series featuring vintage battles and performances from the late 1970's and early 1980's.

    The new album features digitally remastered classic material that documents Busy Bee’s storied career from the beginning of Hip-Hop, including never before released audio.

    The CD's also feature celebrated MC's like The Cold Crush Brothers, The Jazzy Five, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Flash.

    With a career that spans over thirty years, Busy Bee, born David Parker, began rapping in 1977 and earned a reputation as one of New York’s top battle rappers.

    Busy Bee also won the New Music Seminar's MC World Supremacy Belt in 1986.

    As one of the main characters in the pioneering Hip-Hop movie Wild Style, Busy Bee was thrust into the national spotlight, after his legendary battle against Lil' Rodney C of the Funky 4 + 1 and Double Trouble and a historic battle with rapper Kool Moe Dee.

    Below is the official track listing for The History Of Hip Hop Volume One.

  2. I'm getting sick of posts saying 50 this and 50 that, if you don't like 50 cent then don't make a stupid comment about him, 50 cent to me is just a average rapper, there's nothing else to him, so if ya'll say that 50's hating on hip hop and everything, stop making posts saying 50's wack because u going down to his level, and where does that leave hip hop? Damn.

    i don't see weird al on the charts anymore so looks like jones outsold weird all lol

  4. Well Eminem does have skills but at the minute he's just putting those skills to bad use. His word play was awesome back in The Slim Shadey LP days but now he just isnt as good as he used to be. I also wouldn't say that Eminem is the most skillful rapper out cause there are 100's of emcee's who've got more skills than Eminem

    and Eminem does talk some bull crap in his lyrics like ''Radio won't evan play my jam''. What the hell? The radio plays his music before anyone else and ''They tried to shut me down on MTV''. Again more bull cause Eminem is always on MTV and TRL

    all i can say is that this is everyone has an opinion but he still is better than 90% rappers out today and ludacris is also highly skilled but forever slept on , and albums aren't sold on word play but good songs

    Albums are sold on MARKETING!

    marketing and word play are not exclusive and two different things

  6. i think from just reading that he missed the point , 50 said that only because if you watch the show oparah only catrers to white people on her show and luda, cube were right when cube had his barbershop movie out why was he the only member of the cast not on the show being intervied? he and i was wondering the same thing, so i think mel is missing the point entirely

  7. I think alot of people are sick of G-Unit...so i expect their sales 2 continuely fall. 50 will probably be the one 2 stand the longest...but that crap will crumble soon. I wanna Clipse' new one real bad even tho' they aren't typically my steelo. I like the albums from MJB, Justin Timberlake, Tamia, Snoop Dogg, Lupe, Lyfe, Monica, Rhianna, Mary Mary, PCD, Robin Thicke, Kirk Franklin, JoJo, Beyonce, Fergie, John Legend, Christina, + Nelly Furtadao.

    i am sorry aj don't wanna argue with you but i disagree it is more to the fact that the industry as a whole is down right now for example look how dmx, lupe fiasco and such fared
