  1. I miss when this post was hopping, helping me discover new music and rediscovering old favorites. TONY TOINI TONE - If I Had No Loot Sons of Soul (1993)
  2. Unless you're referring to something I'm not recalling, I don't really fault him for not putting his business out in the street. Some of the personal stuff that came out later wasn't really the public's business. I wouldn't consider him keeping some things private lying. I'm also hoping he focuses a lot on the early days and music, but I'm prepared for this to be aimed at the mainstream audience.
  3. Wow. He put out some stuff like that over the years with minimal copies. There's so much that aren't even aware exists.
  4. Will and Arsenio have always had the best chemistry. I've always wanted them to do a film together. This was Will's wildest appearance on the show. You'd never see something like this on late night anymore.
  5. Yeah, this is a bit of a holy grail. When I was younger, I watched The Arsenio Hall Show almost every night. I somehow missed this episode, but I knew it existed because when he would do "Props 2 Hip-Hop" shows, he would show pictures of guests he had from Hip-Hop and he showed a picture of this appearance. Even when they aired reruns, they never showed this episode. I'd never seen Arsenio have that stage on his set, or the greenscreen, so this has a lot going on that was never done any other time on his show. The fact that they did the street remix is dope, too. Back in the 90's artists would perform their remixes sometimes, but it was rarely done once the 2000 hit. I do get the impression that this was during the time that Will's ego was a bit big. He kind of likes hearing himself talk during this appearance. Thanks for finding it. I thought I might never see this performance.
  6. It's insane to think it was released that long ago. Life is so different from back then. Having never separated myself from Homebase for long, it doesn't really sound dated to me. This was the album that made JJ+FP my favorite group. I was old enough to really latch on to, understand every lyric, plus 1991 is kind of my favorite hear for music (and the music that was released shortly before after it. The album deserves a remastered and expanded treatment. A few years ago they digitally released Homebase: The Remixes (https://www.amazon.com/Homebase-Jazzy-Jeff-Fresh-Prince/dp/B01MR3HFUE), which basically features the content on the singles and promotions singles for that album. That needs to be a part of a proper physical release.
  7. I love how you remixed the website. It looks clean and modern, but has the charm that it's always had.
  8. As an optimist, I always thought he was going to pull out of his health issues. In recent years, Biz has lived about an hour from me and frequently DJ's at a venue I like, but I never made it out on the nights he was spinning. I'm really regretting that. I did see him spin at the Will Smith & Friends event years ago. I also saw him at the recording for MTV's Back In Black, Men In Black special. The last time I saw him was when I saw TLC in 2015, in which New Kids On The Block brought him out in the middle of their set to perform. Biz Markie is one of a kind. He is Hip-Hop's class clown. Few emcees are as fun-loving as him. I think because he can be so silly, we don't recognize him for the song writer that he is, the producer he is, and how much music knowledge he has. There have been some great tributes over the last couple days and they shed more light on that side of him. There's a reason he was tight with JJ+FP. We lost a legend. It's a shame that it took this loss for him to get some light shed on his music, but let's hope it's recognized the way it deserves to be.
  9. I love when this kind of stuff survives to be preserved digitally. This might be the only full length mix I've heard that was done while JJ+FP was still active.
  10. I am totally getting this. It's so random.
  11. I'll have to carve out time to watch this. The first 10 minutes are gonna determine if I try to get through the whole thing. lol
  12. I just watched the 20th anniversary release of Independence Day or blu-ray. I was going through the special features and smirked at the story boards that had Will, Vivica, and Ross' characters drawn as white people. It made me realize that Hollywood always expects all white characters in their movies. I'm curious about this statement. For those who live outside of the US, would you agree that there's any truth to this. Issues with racism and white washing in the US are so ridiculous that I rarely consider them other places in the world. I think one of the factors that makes ID4 work is the ensemble casting. I can't imagine an character's casting holding that much weight since it's balanced so well. It kind of makes me think there were race issues at Fox.
  13. I'm guilty of not reading The Alchemist. I need to make a point to do so. I recall Will referring to the book in the past. This project does look, good, so I'll be checking it out.
  14. I'm curious why you suspect that Will wouldn't be honest with the book.
