Looking back on some west coast hip hop from 1988.
Rapper Too $hort’s song Life is…..Too Short is still hot to this day!

Video Highlights:
- The cool little kid bustin his moves 0:25
- The dancing side kick dude (in the background)
- Too $hort and side kick doing their secret handshake 3:04

When i make my first real music video i will have to get a nice side kick like that.

If you havent had enough bass banging Oakland hip hop here’s some spotify links:

Digga & Kas - Let's Go Back

In 2005 DJ Digga was working on an album with a Georgia based emcee Kas. For some reason Kas disapeared just before the album was complete, so now DJ Digga drops the Kick-Off single for free, 4 years later on his blog. 2 tracks and 1 instrumental. Props to DJ Digga and Kas for these dope tracks!

A1: Let´s Go Back (Street Version)
A2: Let´s Go Back (Instrumental)
B1: Area Expander

Kas and DJ Digga “Lets Go Back”

Head over to MIDNIGHT TRAIN TO ÅHUS(DJ Digga’s blog) to download!. Dont forget to check out all of his mixtapes and remixes too. Might come in handy while chilling in the park this summer!

Det är faktiskt inte mycket svensk hip hop som jag gillar. Det finns dock undantag ibland och det här är ett av dom. Oliver & Bjarne B bjuder på funkiga, synthiga och ryckiga beats med fet rap på sin senste EP Borta Men Här. Ett av spåren gästas även av inga mindre än PH3 (Profilen och Eye n’ I, också ett av undantagen).

Oliver Def & Bjarne B - Borta Men Här EP

Här kommer ett smakprov på 5:e spåret av 6 på skivan, Checka Din Puls:

Så gillar ni vad ni hör så glid över på deras MySpace och ge dom lite props. EPn kan köpas på Gulan för 50kr och alla som beställer något i deras nätbutik får den gratis. Förhoppningsviskommer den också upp på iTunes och Spotify innom kort. (updates på det sen)
