The “blatantly looking up stuff from Rap-A-Lot’s Discogs page” edition. Havent quite decided how pointless these posts are yet but im too busy to write anything decent so heres a bunch of rap videos.
3xKrazy – Sunshine In The O (1995, Str8 Game)
Probably doesnt count cos the samples replayed but this really shouldve been in that TROY poll from a while back regardless. It Was A Good Day Pt.17.
Seagram – Eastside (1994, Rap-A-Lot)
If The World Was Mine is nice and all that and I know its the more appropriate song considering him popping his clogs but man – Sleepin In My Nikes woulda made for the greatest video ever. It wouldnt have been all that weird without him in it cos RAL were the masters of making great (and very probably better) videos that didnt star the artists themselves. They shouldve had an all deceased/incarcertaed roster. Pt.18
Black Twang – The Queens Head (ft. Roots Manuva) (1995, Sound Of Money)
Who knew this had a video? Roots obviously wasnt on the ten pints/beans on toast diet yet. Wish Tony didnt have that transatlantic Twang in this one cos its probably his best tune.
Blac Monks – Buddha Nature (Rap-A-Lot, 1994)
What thoughtless arseholes let 3-2 and Lil Bruce out their respective houses like that? fucks sake.
Paris – The Days of Old (1992, Full Scarface Records)
One of my favourite beats ever, bunch of people have used the sample but never with anything close to the emotional punch this has. Can someone explain to me why Paris is so underrated? Sleeping with the Enemy is a minor classic in my opinion and has aged really well.
5th Ward Juvenilez – G Groove (1995, Rap-A-Lot)
Way better than the Kurious song.
BDP- We In there on Yo! (1992, Jive)
Dogg Pound – Lets Play House (Death Row, 1995)
Probably shouldve put this in the Nate post, im sure one of the other six milli-on did though.
Concentration Camp- Sickness (C-Loc Records, 1998)
The Afros – Feel It (1990, CBS)
One of the greatest singles ever and now I know I know it had a video to match thanks to Ego Trip. Davy D is probably the greatest producer ever that no one really talks about. Tougher Than Leather>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Poppa LQ – Why Hate Me (1995, Rap-A-Lot)
Jungle Brothers – On The Road Again (My Jimmy Weighs A Ton) (Q-Tip Remix) (1993, WB)
Ghetto Mafia – Everyday Thang In The Hood (ft. Mc Breed) (1994, Funk Town Records)
Breed doesnt get enough love either, he had tunes.
Suga T – Can You Handle this (Pushin Hits, 2000)
Roots Manuve – Juggle Tings Proper (Big Dada, 1999)
This either. Brits obviously never heard of youtube til recently.
Menace Clan – Da Hood (1995, Rap-A-Lot)
Brand Nubian – Love Me Or leave Me Alone on Yo! (1993, Elektra)
The Puba-less albums arent appreciated enough either, especially Everything Is Everything. Nice one, I managed to make it this far without actually saying slept-on.
Mia X -I Wanna Be With You (1995, No Limit)
Jayo Felony – Sherm Sticc (1995, JMJ Records)
King Tee – Dippin (1995, MCA)
