Remember those infamous words from " Flavor Flav ? " ( Terminator X On The Edge Of Panic )....I do god damn it, and over twenty years later I believe in those words more than ever...
Fuck the Grammy's !!!!!! Hip Hop was designed to go against the grain, nowadays cats are running to the mainstream for any type of hand-out they can get...
These are the nominees for best rap song...( What a fucking joke ).
Best Rap Song
Drake – “Best I Ever Had”
Kid Cudi – “Day ‘N’ Nite”
T.I. & Justin Timberlake – “Dead And Gone”
Jay-Z – “D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune)”
Jay-Z, Rihanna & Kanye West – “Run This Town”
Don't get it twisted....I didn't expect the Grammy nominations to be on point in the first place, that would be ridiculous...I'm just disappointed that the bar has gone down so low......Justin Timberlake is involved in a rap nomination for christ sake...
WOW....Jay-Z nominated twice for two horrible songs....WOW....What the fuck happened to Jay-Z ?..... WOW..
I can still remember the days when Hip Hop got absolutely no love at the Grammy's....Public Enemy, Fresh Prince, M.C. Lyte, etc
actually boycotted that shit in the late 80's....They had the right idea....
WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT A GOD DAMN GRAMMY ?
* UPDATE-----Damn I turned to the Grammy's just to see how they started the show....HHHMMMM, just like I thought, some more weirdo behavior...They opened up with Lady GaGa & Elton John....HAHAHAHA......
Time to turn on my sampler and get grimey....

For all the work 4th Disciple put in, you would think his name would get mentioned a lot more when cats are talking about top notch producers...
He goes straight to the vaults with this project (Best Of 740 Volume 1).....
HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD TOP PICKS *
" The Fall "- featuring Shogun Assassin....." CPC Theory "-featuring Black Bummy Juss, Big Tae....." Time Passes "- featuring Agony....." One Step " - featuring Verb........
YEAH, this more like it..." D.J. Cliffy " put together this nice compilation of Brazilian treats....It will be impossible for you to walk around with a screwface after listening to this...
This is perfect for a scenic drive or a lengthy flight...( Buckle up, these grooves will provide large amounts of turbulence-HAHA )

Here are 5 joints to help jump start your Friday adventures...Boost the volume to ten, turn on your oscillating fan, grab a towel, and get ready for some flames.....
1. Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface- " Our Dreams "..
For some reason I really like this joint..I can't put my finger on it...If anyone else tried to rhyme on this type of joint I would most likely dismiss it...But somehow these three manage to make this Michael Jackson sample sound somewhat grimey..
2. Third Sight- Murder, Death, Kill..
WOW....D-Styles, Du-Funk, and the San Jose rhyme monster " Jihad " bring that west coast hardcore to the set....If you slept on this heater when it first dropped, here is your chance to get right !!!!!
3. Too Poetic- " Motivation "...
Former Too Poetic D.J. , " Kaos " recently unveiled a unreleased Too Poetic L.P. ( Dropping Signal ) on Jesse Serwer's excellent site...On this cut " Poetic " drops jewels....Listen up...R.I.P.
4. D.J. Tenshun- #3....
God damn man...." D.T. " is not fucking around when it comes to that raw shit...YOU BETTER CHECK IN...
5..Sadat X featuring Pete Rock- Turn It Up..
" The great dot X " is back with the first leak off of the Wild Cowboys 2 album....This joint is starting to grow on me a little bit, hopefully the album provides that DOPE !!!!!!!
Tonight I'm going to be checking out turntable wrecker, " D.J. Babuuuuuuuuuuuu".....It's the first time I have seen him when it wasn't a battle-type situation...I hear he is going to flip more of a party-rocker type of set so that should be very interesting...
One of my homeboys grew up with him, so just maybe I can get some exclusive shit to bless the HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD posse with in the near future...( YA HEARD ME )...
Regardless, I will let ya'll know how it all went down...
AUDI 5000....A-B-C- YAAAAA.....GHOST.....SWAYZEE....
Here is the show from last night...This time around I played nothing but my own self-made productions....Remixes, blends, ill instrumentals, dusted samples, and a heavy dose of crunchy drums.....
I put a lot of work into these beats over the years, and I appreciate that so many of you have taken the time to listen to them..I'm literally sitting on hundreds of beats so expect to hear more throughout 2010...
Shout out to my partner in GRIME " Mr. Mad Planet " for always keeping the vibes up...Rashad, Kendoo, Shyeer Allah, State, Mad Miguel, Vex, Ali, Jessica ( For putting up with the noise ), Fran, Khasm, Sha, Matt in Chicago, My girl Liz, Goblin, Mikey Ice, D.O.,Talk-Sick ( You were one of our biggest supporters-see you when I get there ), Bron, Markski, Fooders, P-Sol, Daze, Nick Name, Sin out there in Brooklyn, Grim Rock, Daily Diggers out in London ( Keep those breaks coming brother ) Worm, Big Dan in Chico, Hen Rockerz, Choc-Onerz, Riff, Kool Skool out in the U.K., Monzrock, E.C., etc........

I'm not quite sure when this interview was conducted, but it damn sure is a good one...Planet Ill writer " Odeisel ", managed to ask " P " just the right questions that no one else seems to...

Even though I kinda fell back from feeding my AF1 fetish a couple years ago, I'm seriously thinking of doing my own top 50...So make sure you stay on the lookout for that...
This list by the " Mayor " will definitely surprise many of you, especially his number one pick...
Mayor, who has just under 1200 pairs of crispy Air Force 1s, has made a name for himself as a major player in the sneaker game and even has his own sneaker Ustream show on Thursday and Sunday nights. In Mayor's top 50 you'll find a bunch of highly sought after Air Forces and special make-ups that even veteran sneakerheads might have missed. But which models made the cut? Check out the countdown to see Mayor's favorite fifty...
Seattle has a rich musical history....I'm not talking about that grunge shit that your moms was blasting in the early 90's....Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, and Jimi Hendrix all started their illustrious careers in this north western city...
" Light In The Attic Records " & crate digging extraordinaire " Mr.Supreme ", have spent several years unearthing funk & soul gems from this region that remained largely under the radar...
Recently the original artist that created some of this timeless music have reunited to record, perform, and get the props that they rightfully deserve ...
Ladies and gentlemen, here is the trailer for "Wheedle's Groove"...Two thumbs up !!!!!!!!
* Favorite quote- " Good music is alive forever "......( True indeed, my brother )

A couple years ago I ran into under rated rhyme slinger " Pep Love " at a world famous record store in San Francisco...We chopped it up for a minute, cracked a couple jokes, etc....
I noticed he was carrying a bunch of jazz records in his hands." What's up with the Jazz records Pep, you chopping beats these days ", I asked with a slight chuckle.....He replied, " Oh yeah, I have been for a minute now "....
On this new cut ( No Doubt ) Pep brings his production chops to the table....
I'm really getting tired of putting up these R.I.P. post...It seems like every month another musical icon is passing...It seems like every month someone from the Hip Hop nation is traveling to the other side...AAAAHHHHHHHHH
Earlier today one-time " Flavor Unit " member, " Apache " passed away...Not quite sure of the details surrounding his death and I'm not quite sure if I want to know...
Just yesterday ( Real Talk ) I was listening to " You Must Be Out Of Your Fuckin Mind " in the gym....CRAZY...My condolences go out to his friends, family, etc...
" You Must Be Out Of Your Fucking Mind " Fat Joe-featuring Apache & Kool G.Rap..( Produced by Diamond D )

Make sure you tune in at 9 o'clock sharp to catch Mr.Funk What Ya Heard & I blaze up cyber-space with that official heat...Listen up for the trivia question, you might just receive a special 2010, Hip Hop package if you have your head screwed on right...
Big up to everyone that checks in...You already know how we do: blends, newness, exclusives, under appreciated sure-shots, shenanigans, doubles, and all that other fly shit !!!!!
TUNE IN 9 O'OCLOCK SHARP HOMEBOY...
Even though this is a re-post don't think for a hot second that I am running out of dangerous beats.....The only reason why I am reposting this remix of Royal Flush ( Wordwide ) is because it seems to get a good response whenever I play it for one of my peoples...
I have been making beats for half of my life..Sometimes things come together, and sometimes they don't....With this remix right here, I knew I had a heavy piece of weaponry on my hands ....
The original version by " L.E.S. " is a certified classic in my opinion and damn near impossible to top, but I feel my version deserves some burn as well...
So quit stalling homeboy...Swoop up this remix and prepare for impact..
All beats destroyed, mangled, sliced, wrestled, and deconstructed by ME !!!!!
Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I will let you know what I think after fully listening to it...My fingers are crossed..

R.I.P. Teddy Pendagrass- A true legend...
Yeah, winter is in full effect, but HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD is going to keep things extra steamy for everyone that swoops through to hear that official heat...DO NOT SLEEP..This is a mixtape with actual blends ( Not a compilation )....
" The third instalment in our fledgling ‘Brazilika’ series is a high octane and non-stop Brazilian block party mix from DJ producer and psychedelic rock librarian Andy Votel. Expertly squeezed, segued and sequenced together, Votel’s rapid fire journey ventures into both the fondly remembered Tropicalia period and a period less well known, characterised by obscure acid rock, freak folk and other mutations of Musica Popular Brasileira (MPB).
Votel’s twisted tale unearths a vast array of weird and wonderful musical stories from the likes of Os Mutantes, Novos Bianos, Sidney Miller, Os Brazoes and Azymuth. All tracks were originally conceived in the same climate that spawned samba rock and tropicalia yet pages away from the scrutiny of the political dictatorships of the 1970s and very different to the catalogues held by the European majors.
This definitive compilation is comprised of tracks handpicked by Andy Votel and were all originally released on Brazil’s Som Livre and RGE imprints. Under those distorted guitars, the indelible indigenous South American influences heard in the percussion and vocal arrangements give these recordings an individuality exclusive to Brazil. None more so than the fuzz-ridden, re-workings of classic national favourites exemplified by Moraes Moreira's version of 'Se Voce Pensa' previously recorded by both Gal Costa and Roberto Carlos. Also in the mix Os Mutantes in a later incarnation to mark the era when prog rock finally landed in South America. By this time Som Livre's catalogue had began to boast a roster including funk-rock luminaries such as Tim Maia and Azymuth -who can be heard on this mix at their very hardest, oozing with Brazilian funk attitude which reinforces the Far Out connection."
Os Brazões - Módulo Lunar / Gerson Conrad/ Zezé Motta- 1974/ Betinho - Careta /Novos Baianos - Baby Consuelo
Tim Maia - Flores Belas / Trio Soneca - Funga-Funga / Novos Baianos - Tinindo Trincando / Sidney Miller - Dos Anjos
Moraes Moreira - Se Você Pensa/ Mutantes - Deixe Entrar Um Pouco D'Água no Quintal / Os Brazões – Feitiço/ Os Brazões - Gotham City/ Pery Ribeiro - Ciladas / Novos Baianos - Ferro na Boneca/ Azymuth - Periscópio / Novos Baianos - De Vera
Os Brazões - Volkswagen Blue/ Sidney Miller - Um Dia Qualquer / Trio Soneca - Os Bichos/ Tim Maia - É Necessário Brazilian Octopus - Gamboa / Novos Baianos - Colégio de Aplicação /Abílio Manoel - Terra Livre/Sidney Miller - Dois Toques Os Brazões - Pega A Voga Cabelud/ Sidney Miller – Cicatrizes

I recently stumbled across an article detailing how "Justin Timberlake" recently beatboxed for "Brother Ali" at a performance in Wyoming..
Can you imagine how wack that must have sounded ?
Anyway, I used to get my Beatbox on...Matter of fact I was kinda nice with that shit....R.I.P. Buff Love ( Fat Boys )

The reason why I am a " Lo-Head " to this day is because of these cats right here....Peep the Lo-Life squad splashing up 42nd street in N.Y.C...
On January 8th, original " L's " united to take part in recreating some of the classic photos that they took in 1988....The event was organized by O.G. booster supreme " Rack- Lo ".....SALUTE..
And just to keep it 100..You know I had to hit you off with a classic from the first " Lo-Life " ever on wax, " Boostin Kev "
( That Be Boostin )
Russel Fong & Matt Cali impressed me with their original approach on this mixtape...It is broken down into four different parts, each consisting of heavy breaks with a twist of instrumental Hip Hop beats...By the sounds of things, it must have been a lengthy process recording this project...
Good work fellas....
"This Dj concerto, in four parts, takes you on a journey into sound denoting the best part of hip hop, the soul of the music. "The Little Green Tape" is perfect to vibe out to. Repeat is a must." - L*Roneous

Hip Hop is such a big part of my life I can actually say it is one of the most important things in my world.Is it weird that I don't have any friends that aren't down with Hip Hop in some shape,form,or fashion?
Ever since I can remember I have been crying foul when certain so-called Hip Hop heads fumble the pass and make fools of themselves for not staying in their lane ... For this weeks " GTFOH ", I'm going to take my gloves off and lay the smack down....
1..Did you know Steele from the movie " Juice " came out with an album ? I bet your forgetful ass didn't remember this sad attempt at mic rocking...
Wow....It wasn't all good in the 90's either ninja !!!!!!!!
2...Yo dogz, I like " M.O.P. " just as much as the next man, but this is just downright shameful....My dudes would have revoked my Hip Hop pass if they even suspected me of being down with such wobble-headed fuckery..." Life is good , life is great / life is unbelievable, life is hard..Life is cruel, life is beautiful / ooh yeah yeah ".....G.T.F.O.H....
3...Isn't it kinda strange how Mariah Carey picks whoever is hot at the moment and decides to collab with them...This is what I call the " Chameleon Syndrome "...From O.D.B. to a barely understandable Gucci Mayne, she will do whatever it takes to be popular I guess....She even had the nerve to say O.D.B. was her favorite rapper, WE DONT BELIEVE YOU........R.I.P. Ason Unique..
4....Funny how dudes try to cop a plea after totally abandoning their Hip Hop roots....I always thought " Fat Joey Crack " was a decent enough cat...D.I.T.C. is his foundation for christ sakes, but when dudes get a little paper sometimes they get all eccentric and shit....We need you to come back " F.J. ", so knock off all that bullshit....
5...Over here at Hip Hop Battlefield I try to incorporate the past, present, and future of this art form....Too many cats stay so stuck in the 90's that they overlook a lotta dope shit that is poppin off today...Don't get me wrong troop..My favorite years are from 86-98, but it is my duty as a D.J. to be up on the new fly shit as well.....Stop all the bloodclot crying about things you can't control....Stay on top of your skills and stay focused...
6...I'm not a fan of modern R&B...To be honest I would rather listen to some grimey ass punk rock than hear someone whine about how their girl left them high and dry....So it should come as no suprise why I think this collabo between Big Daddy Kane & Patti Labelle straight up stinks...
7...Everybody thinks they are a gangster/goon/hardrock/shooter these days....I think Hip Hop has suffered in recent years because fools are afraid to break free from this blueprint and just truly be themselves...Dont get it twisted; I don't want to hear anyone spit that David Bowie weirdo rap shit, but I am getting bored with dudes that " catch all these bodies " but couldn't hold themselves down in a cipher....YA FEEL ME...Calm down with all that GUN TALK and get your breath control together...
8...Remember when rap battles were actual rap battles ?....Nowadays dudes are battling accapella on some, one-two, buckle my shoe weirdo shit....I can't fuck with most of these battles, but this one between " T-Rex & Math Hoffa " had me laughing louder than a motherfucker....
9....Alright ya'll....I could go on forever but this is a perfect time to wrap it up with all the shenanigans....Remember, these are just "MY" opinions and I don't expect anyone to think like I do..You can send all hate mail to DEEZNUTZ@FUCKYOURSELF.COM
Last night those " Hip Hop Project " dudes invaded cyber-space with another edition of musical mayhem...Salute to all my peoples in the " Go "...
