Wrote this for Platform recently

"90’s Hip Hop seems to be back in style. This is good if, like me, you have wasted large amounts of time and money on “rare” original press vinyl. The sad part is that the super rare Pete Rock remix you have is probably not worth shit to anyone except for the overweight balding street wear guy who works at the Notting Hill Record an Tape Exchange shop. It’s also probably not in good enough condition so he will laugh in your face like the comic book guy from the Simpsons. Fuck him. You could always become a dj instead, it’s pretty easy nowadays as you don’t have to be able to mix or actually buy any music, as stealing from the internet is completely socially acceptable. Here are some no brainers to get you started."

Pete Rock and Cl Smooth - T.R.O.Y
I reckon they are my favourite duo, sadly their solo efforts have never topped the likes of “Mecca and The Soul Brother”. Soul Survivor is shit.

Jeru The Damaja - Come Clean
Before he started wearing Camoflauge clothing and lost the plot completely. In my opinion he must have suffered from skunk psychosis

Diamond D - Best Kept Secret
“Ya see I skip to my loo like Napolean at Waterloo” What the hell does that mean?

Group Home - Livin Proof
Living in a group home is really awful, watch the Wire season 4 to find out why.

Nas - Halftime
Illmatic is probably the best Hip Hop album ever. Produced by the likes of Premier, Pete Rock and Q Tip. Wow

Raekwon - Ice Cream
“Wu-Tang in the cut, for real niggaz what? It's the after party and bitches want to fuck” Yes they do, ask your mum for some money because the ice cream man is coming to fuck you, just kidding.

The Pharcyde - Runnin
As J Dilla died recently you have probably only recently heard of him. if not get to know yo. He produced this as well as many other “bangers”.

A Tribe Called Quest - The Hop
Definitely deserves “the medals in the warfield of respect”. Do the Hop. Its Hip.

De La Soul - The Brakes
A lot of people thought De La Soul were gay- not school yard gay but proper homosexual gay. They’re idiots.

Jay Z featuring Notorious Big – Brooklyn’s finest.
Not sure about Jay Z but Biggie deserves the title.
