For this next edition of BBR, I’ll be sharing with y’all a hip-hop classic in my collection – Paul’s Boutique by the Beastie Boys.
Noah gave me this record a few years back on my birthday and it’s definitely one of my prized collections.
Easily one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time, the amount of samples used on this album is astounding and credit must be given to the Dust Brothers who used over 105 songs to create the backing tracks. (They were even sued by the Beatles!)
So check out the album that Miles Davis claims to have never grown tired listening to.
Tonight we’re at Jaxlive in Jacksonville, Fl with Dr. SirBrother and Brent Byrd & The Suitcase Gypsies.
Doors open at 8pm. More info HERE
See yall there. ~Boots.
Where Brooklyn At?!?!
I gotta say, as far as big metropolitan cities go, this place is Beautiful! In a way it reminds me of home – a crazy mix of cultures, excellent food, great music, fun people, and lots of pride. That’s what I love most – people here take pride in the city. To me, that speaks loudest!
Here’s a small playlist dedicated to my other favorite big city – BROOKLYN!!
The Beastie Boys- No Sleep till Brooklyn
Youngblood Brass Band – Brooklyn
Gang Starr – The Place We Dwell
Yasiin Bey (aka. Mos Def) – Brooklyn
Yours truly will be hitting with full force tonight as we take the stage at the famous Brooklyn Bowl. Starting it off is Nashville’s Cataline Crime, followed by Charleston favorites Dangermuffin. Then it’s Bourbon Dirty till 11:30. See y’all there!
News just hit: RIP MCA. You will be missed by all.
Gig tonight in Sarasota – WSLR – 9pm
Trying to cheer up from MCA’s death with this picture we took of lizards fucking:
