All Hail Funkin' Lesson

So the word is out and the Big Daddy is headlining the Festival. We just received two more confirmations that I can’t announce until The Bodega says so. BTW, make sure to check out the Bodega to get tickets and info. Also James is coming up with some hilarious posts. It’s also his birthday today so as a gift forward him all the spam you get in your inbox today.

The South. A rape case. And the only guy not under suspicion is the Black guy. What goes around comes around I figure.
If this is true those dudes need be sent to the Oz of North Carolina to wash another man’s drawers for the next 15-20


Watching the Video Music Box tribute to Professor X on Saturday night. Wow, I haven't seen these videos in like 12 years.
X Clan will go down as a small group with a major impact. They waved the afrocentric banner that is so closely associated with the Golden Age. And they repped it hard. On every track.
While a lot of rappers run their jibs, Professor X was leading marches.
Kweli, Mos, Common, and certainly dead prez would not have existed without X Clan. I would go as far to say that dead prez is a more militant and slightly better organized X Clan with MC’s worse than Brother J and better than the whole BlackWatch Movement.

New trivia question

Brother J of X Clan went to a prominent NY High School with several other students who went on to form their own influential Hip-Hop groups. Name one of his schoolmates.
And as a bonus what was the name of the high school?

I believe that would be Murray Bergtraum High along with Q-Tip, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and the Jungle Brothers.

correct-umundo!
That is how Hip-Hop heads are taught down in Charlottesville, party people!

Since you have all the CD's and DVD's you need and you'll get a VIP pass to the Festival anyway- no prize for you!
