Dancehall Tourist

I seriously think this chick could press charges if she wanted, but by the looks of things she probably doesn't want to. Woyee!

This is from 2007 and the first time (I think) that these two hooked up.

Rap Treats #8: Dr. Dre "U Got Ganked" (Mixtape)

This is Dr. Dre's "U Got Ganked" mixtape from 1987. It's in 2 parts, sides A and B, because it was recorded off a cassette tape. This tape was made for some dude named Steve who sold mixtapes at the Rodium Swap Meet (Dre even busts a freestyle about him at the beginning of side B). The music on here is straight classic material as Dre cuts up future anthems by EPMD, MC Lyte, Public Enemy, BDP, Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, Kool Moe Dee, Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Too Short, King Tee and of course NWA.

Nardwuar vs. Vanilla Ice

Rap Treats #7: Slick Rick "Practice Over At Chill Will's Crib" (1984)

Slick Rick

The title speaks for itself. This isn't an actual song. It's MC Ricky D practicing over at Chill Will's Crib back in 1984. He was obviously down with the Get Fresh Crew but also still "down with the crew that's called The Kangol."

Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh

They had the crowd going crazy! MC Ricky D on the mic and Doug E. Fresh on the beat box also from 1984. They start with "Treat Her Like A Prostitute", end with a beatbox version of "The Show", but the highlight is "La-Di-Da-Di" and the extra verse that isn't on the studio version of the song. After the "with your wrinkled pussy, I can't be your lover" line there is a whole next verse. Rick busts a rap about Miss America who turns out to be "that hoe" Vanessa Williams and she ends up giving Rick head. He even sings again. This was recorded just before they went in the studio and made "The Show"/"La-Di-Da-Di" record - which is still my all time favorite 12inch EVER!


Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh

This is Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh performing live in 1999 - 15 years later. They still sound dope. Greatest duo ever in my books, even if their run together was short lived.

Rap Treats #6: Original, Rare and Unreleased

Beastie Boys (1986)

This was supposed to be on Licenced To Ill but it got dropped from the album at the last minute. The are getting their Beatles on here a little bit.

Big Daddy Kane (1987)

Produced by Marley Marl and features lyrics that eventually ended up on Kane's debut Long Live The Kane.

EPMD feat. LL Cool J (1989)

Different beat and for some reason there is no Erick Sermon. The raps are the same except there is an extra verse by LL on it. Maybe this was a LL Cool J song originally?

Eric B & Rakim (1992)

This is original version with a somewhat different beat. The baseline is absent and replaced by a few different funk samples including James Brown's "Blue's & Pants".

LL Cool J (1988)

This is the original version of "Jack The Ripper". Same beat but totally different lyrics. Not sure if he's dissing Kool Moe Dee on this too, but he's dissing somebody.

Pete Rock & CL Smooth (1991)

Completely different beat (drums might be the same) and features some chick singing on the chorus. Nothing beats the album version though.

Classic Material: Dre & Snoop Live (1993)

Here is Dre & Snoop performing "Deep Cover", "Nuthin' But A G Thing" and "Dre Day" on the 1993 HBO special "Rosie Perez Presents Society's Ride". I didn't get HBO back in the day so I never even knew this show existed. Another MOD jack!
