As a parody/homage of the blaxploitation movies of the 70’s, it was perfect. The music, the fashion, the hairstyles, the grainy picture; it felt authentic but most importantly it was funny.
The Dutch / Belgian tv producers of SYTYCD came up with the term Hip Hop Lyrical.
The famous Mr. Wiggles, one of the pioneers of the Hip Hop speaks about this…
From all the cyphers this year, for me the Shady 2.0 cypher really stood out the most with lyrically insane verses by the shady crew.
Em signed some new artists to his label and it’s safe to say that they are all heavy hitters when it comes down to lyricism.
Check out The Shady crew with Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf and the president himself Mr. Slim Shady.
This is one of the dopest commercials I’ve ever seen in my entire life!
I had to share it with you guys, the production is crazy!
What up people, today we got another throwback for your eyes and ears with The Lyricist Lounge Show.
The first time I remember seeing Hiphop being mad funny was with The Lyricist Lounge Show.
Back in the days this aired on MTV and I swear no other show on MTV right now can touch this shit!!!
I laughed so hard every time I saw the sketches they where performing on the show and the freestyles at the end of every show.
The cast of the show consisted out of mc’s Mastah Fool, Wordsworth and BabeePower who are no strangers to the hiphop game, with geust rappers such as MosDef, Snoopdogg, and Rahdigga just to name a few.
To get a better understanding of the show check out these few sketches and freestyles!
Saving Private Rhyming
Last week this clip caught my attention and I laughed so fucking hard when watching, it was ridiculous people!
The clip i’m referring to is a trailer or a sneak preview of this new television show called Holland In Da Hood.
The idea is that local “hiphop heads” get flown to The States to earn respect, street credibility and at the same time get tested in they’re knowledge of the Hiphop culture.
First time I saw this I thought it was a joke but after watching it again I really think this shit is for reals.
It’s sad though, that people refer shit like this with Hiphop, but on the other hand… man…. this will make for some great television !
Enjoy these next three minutes and for our international following, no worries, there are subtitles!!
Thunder Cats Hoohh, who doesn’t remember the classic cartoon ThunderCats? Well if you don’t you have a chance to check it out again. Like anything that was ever cool in our childhood, they’ve rebooted it. But I gotta be honest it’s pretty good, it premiered yesterday on Cartoon Network. Which means for us European folks you can coughdownloadcough it since this morning. Either you knew it since your childhood or never saw it in your life, it’s definitely worth to check it out. Check the trailer for a little taste. And remember you’re never to old for your innerchild.
