24 Jul 2008, 04:07 by nate32xI admit I had to stretch to get this list to round up to ten, so I included a couple crew affiliations. Nonetheless, these are ten women who had their shit together enough to exist in the world of hip hop -- not just showing up briefly to sing a hook, but to actually endure the tribulations of being down with the crew.
One song each is submitted as evidence of these ladies' blazingness. Nuff respect.
10. Claudette Ortiz of City High
"What Would You Do?" (2001)
9. Queen Latifah of Native Tongue (when the crew coalesced, she sang -- check the 3:20 mark in the below video)
"Buddy (Native Tongue Decision)" (1989)
8. Kim Hill of the Black Eyed Peas
7. Joyo Velarde of Quannum Projects
"Balcony Beach" by Lyrics Born (2000)
6. Da*sey of The Smile Rays
15 Jul 2008, 13:28 by thegridDie mittlerweile schwer gealterte, aber immer noch smooth groovende Stereo MC's-Crew hat schon einige Prachtsperlen veröffentlicht. Zum Beispiel das wunderbar zeitlose "Connected" oder den erfrischenden Kracher "Step It Up". Aber nicht nur als Band, sondern auch als Remixer bewährten sich die englische MC's. Der funkige Quannum-Remix "I changed my mind" ist ein eindrückliches Beispiel für die Kunst, ein Song geschickt mit mehr Tanz-Energie auszustatten.
Es groovt und die Hüften kreisen. Nach dem eher verhaltenen Album "Paradise" präsentiert sich die UK-Band auf ihrer neuen Scheibe "Double Bubble" einiges frischer. Die Stereo MC's müssen sich nicht hinter ihrem Alter verstecken. Im Gegenteil, sie drücken noch mal mächtig aufs Gas. So schnell geben sich die Altmeister nicht geschlagen. Zum Glück!
Es scheint, als hätten sie den dreckigen Beat in die Wiege gelegt bekommen. Nebst allen klaren und sterilen Beats…

1 May 2007, 05:59 by infinitel00pSun 29 Apr – DJ Shadow
Word up to your mother. Shadow was returning from his performance at Coachella in California when he decided to stop in Denver. His last solo performance in this town was 1997 during the Jeru the Damaja tour.
Lifesavas were cool opening. A little too positive message and not enough rhymes. They had a real stop-go feeling which was annoying at times. The DJ looked desperate for a lay.
Anyway, DJ Shadow was fucking sick. The last time I saw him was on the Quannum tour a few years ago. Fortunately for me, The Gift Of Gab made a super special appearance with Alphabet Aerobics
Shadow did his sweet routine with about 4 tracks from his latest The Outsider. Notables included Midnight in a Perfect World, Organ Donor and Building Steam With a Grain of Salt. It was the best show I have been to in a year.

"I got so much trouble on my mind, refuse to lose/ Here's your ticket, hear the drummer get wicked."
-"Welcome to the Terrordome"
Hip hop's coming of age was signified with Public Enemy's introduction to the world, especially with the release of their second album, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. While most rap stars were barely out of high school and were a discussing relatively trivial matters, the men of Public Enemy were in their late 20s and rapped about social issues important to the black community. …

23 Aug 2005, 20:29 by kampfI've been a huge music fan from very early on. I was rarely drawn to the popular music, after I became exposed to the music of others.
My early days were simply passed by listening to the radio, recording songs onto tape, or listening to the local college station, which had a rap/hip-hop format at the time. I remember listening to RUN-DMC with my brothers while playing games at home. LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, EPMD and Eric B. and Rakim were influential.
My musical tastes evolved during high school, where I was exposed to Metallica, when And Justive For All... was released. Suicidal Tendencies, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Skinny Puppy, U2, D.R.I. and numerous other rock and alternative groups presented their best works during this time. Primus' Frizzle Fry was one of the first really different groups I'd heard, so when I got the chance to see them in concert, I did. Seeing PE, Anthrax, YBT and Primus in the early 90s during the Burn Out tour was awesome... 3rd Bass's The Cactus Album and KMD's Mr. …
