A good beat goes a long way in the rap world these days. But what also goes a long way is being able to establish yourself as a credible Hip Hop producer. True Hip Hop heads know the importance of producers in the game- DJ Premier, Pete Rock, J Dilla- but rarely do people take the time to enjoy the craft of just the beat.

Gen 3 2009, 20:14 di neeshThese albums have shaped me into the wide-ranged aficionado I am today. I grew up in a household with my ma who came to the US from the Caribbean as a young woman in the late 60's (she's a fan of Elvis Presley and the Golden Oldies as well as Hindi/Bollywood tunes in addition to Trinidadian music, Norah Jones and appreciates anyone who's "got pipes on 'em") and two much older siblings. My brother was a house/club DJ so that shit was bumping constantly and is embedded in my brain. My sister was into R&B like Tevin Campbell, Jodeci and whatnot yet also smooth jazz. I was all about solo chick singers, Disney tunes, Show Tunes, Carnival music, salsa, merengue and dance hits from all eras (especially disco and club remixes of pop hits) until the fifth grade when I got my hands on Tragic Kingdom and Razorblade Suitcase. Thus began my foray into alternative rock, interrupted only for a brief moment when I became Bad Boy records obsessed as a tween. I first heard ... …

What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
It was all over the radio when it first came out. I hardly ever listen to it now, especially as their later albums are much better. They're huge in France y'know.
What is your favorite album of 2?
Summer in Abaddon
Reminds me of summer in Australia in 2005. Just loverly.
What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
'Two sips from the cup of human kindness
and I'm shit faced, just laid to waste'
How many times have you seen 4 live?
Never, and at this rate I never will because I always miss out on tickets. Grrr.
What is your favorite song by 7?
What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10?
Any night where I've danced to the Buffalo Bunch remix of If I Ever Feel Better has usually been a good one. 'I can try, can try, can try!'
Mar 8 2006, 3:41 di senorwoohooDamn. I cannot wait to get through them all, although I've heard many of the tracks off three of them(which are indicated by an asterisk).
The Mouse and The Mask*
Enter The Wu-Tang
Live at Stubb's
Matisyahu - Youth(no tag for this album yet)
Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium*
Immortal Technique - Revolutionary Vol. 1
Immortal Technique - Revolutionary Vol. 2*
They might have put a dent in my checking account, but it's all worth it in my opinion. I can't wait for the Matisyahu concert on April 10, should be amazing.
