Day 99 deserves a little treat. “Still, gettin Mine…”
This post is not Grammy related, but along the path and journey I have to keep things fresh and invigorate myself to keep going, so let me take you back to a favorite “cassette tape” I used to pump in my mother’s basement when I was cutting hair. Lyrics, Beats and Inspiration!!!! WHoooooaaa!!
Soundbombing II was probably the dopest thing to come from now defunt Rawkus Records. The compilation featured notables like: Eminem, Mos Def, Skillz, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Pharoahe Monch, R.A. The Rugged Man, J-Live, Prince Paul, Kid Capri, Pete Rock, Marley Marl, Sadat X, Grand Puba, Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek, Tash, Dilated Peoples, Q-Tip, Common, Diamond D and the Cocoa Brovaz. In conclusion, congrats to all of these guys for still remaining relevant in today’s market, the best they can, as this project alone was 11 years ago, which is far beyond the career-life expectancy of today’s rappers.
