Rah Digga - This Ain't No Lil Kid Rap + Redman Rmx

Yeah mang, Rah Digga aka Dirty Harriet is back and sounding pretty dame serious if you ask me. She's teamed up with Nottz (think 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Scarface, Kanye West) who handles full production on Rah's 'Classic' LP. I've only heard two or so tracks so far but I'm liking what I'm hearing so far. Here's the said single and remix featuring fellow Brick City veteran, Redman....

Dusted Off pt6 Tupac, Stetsasonic & Pharcyde

No long explanation, these were just today's plays. They take me back to a summer in the 90's where these came on after one another on a more respected MTV or The Box ..."Music Television YOU Control", remember that ish?

Dusted Off pt5: Astrud Gilberto, Cut Chemist, Amy Winehouse & Black Eyed Peas

This evening I began with the music, then I went on to reading up on the talented and very lovely Astrud Gilberto and I was surprised about how much music she's put out over the years. I've Dug out a few LP's in my travels but reading about some of her movements lead me to say a simple "ya damn right", about her receiving the 'Latin Jazz USA Award For Lifetime Achievement' in 1992, then later being added to the 'Latin Jazz Music's Hall Of Fame' only eight years ago (2002). There's is plenty more for you to find on this veteran, like... she recorded her songs in over seven different languages. If that's not impressive I don't know what is...

Anyway, similar to 'Dusted Off pt4' it's all about two of my favorite tracks which were inspired by Astrud Gilberto.

First up we have 'Berimbau' which Cut Chemist went on to sample the vocals from to make 'The Garden' for his 'The Audience Is Listening' LP...

Now we've got Astrud's 'Who Can I Turn To' which Will-I-Am understandably so samples the intro for 'Like That' ft full B.E.P's squad, Cee-Lo, Talib Kweli Q-Tip and John Legend. Don't be surprised if you hear me get some artists for my own version, the track is just asking for it...

Last minute entry, not a favorite like that last two but I can't forget the 1964 classic by Astrud Gilberto and Stan Getz, 'The Girl From Ipenema' which was used for Any Whinehouse's 'Cherry'...

Dusted Off pt4: The Beatles, Junior Parker, Cypress Hill

I'm sure many would have their own opinions on sampling and music covers etc, all of which would make for a damn good conversation. For me at this present time I am loving how the inspiration (not biting, there's a difference ya know) given off by one song can be tracked through the decades and be responsible for influencing another even with having no direct link.

Here we have The Beatles's 'Taxman' which was later to be covered with a funky soul twist by Junior Parker (and Band), which then went on to inspire Cypress Hill's 'I Wanna Get High' with a loop taken *hmm, strong word* from Mr Parker's version by DJ Muggs most likely. Lord knows how many other "green thumbed" artists were influenced by this track in one way or another ;0)

But the question is, would Cypress Hill have come with that song without the Liverpudlian lads ever doing 'Taxman' in the first place??? hmmmmm........

Fun With Dumb - Dumbfoundead & DJ Zo

<a href="http://dumbfoundead.com/album/fun-with-dumb">Intro by Dumbfoundead</a>

Chaundon - Baby Making Music

Excellent album!! Not much more to say on this one. My personal favorites have to be 'We Don't Need' and 'Husky' which is a very well executed concept. That said, the whole LP is pretty flawless.
