Yesterday was the Ack’s birthday, and even though a busy vacation day means this is going up later than I’d planned, I still wanted to celebrate the occasion with a posting of one of his all-time favorite jams. He’s hardly alone in his love for the signature tune from Oakland’s Souls Of Mischief, I also [...]

Two Kings In A Cipher - Movin’ On ‘Em
Watching the dunk & errant oopfest that is the NBA All-Star game last night go tme thinking about posting a basketball-related jam for this week’s Old School Monday jam. Well the first one I thought of might confuse most folks, as the song itself isn’t hoops-related at all, but the video for Two Kings In [...]
Well it seems I’ve arrived at Monday’s end without posting my tradition Old School Hip Hop jam (well, I’d traditionally been doing multi-song OSM posts for years, but for various reasons I’ve recently switched this to one old school jam per Monday. Here’s to new traditions!), but D-Sisive’s going to save my bacon this time around.
D recently got word of his 3rd Juno nomination, for Jonestown 2, along with Classified, Drake, Kardinal, and Swollen Members. Well as you might expect, this called for a celebration, and D celebrated in the studio creating a couple tracks with Muneshine behind the boards. One of those songs is a hijacking of Naughty By Nature’s Ghetto Bastard. Why, you ask? Simple: “Ghetto Bastard is one of my favourite songs of all time. Naughty By Nature is one of my favourite groups.” Works for me.

I’ll happily cop to this post essentially being a re-up (except for the Come On Let’s Move It remix) of this rather enjoyable OSM from a couple years ago, but at this point I’ve done so many of these old school posts that repitition is inevitable. Plus it’s Special Ed! And on the cover he’s [...]
Greetings, and happy old school new year! I was still on holiday last week, so I thought I’d greet my first OSM opportunity the way I have for the last few years: by posting a bunch of awesome songs from 20 years ago. Yes, the title and your undoubtedly excellent math skills, have revealed [...]
Well, seeing as how we’re a week away from Christmas, and that we’ve been in a festive mood around these parts all month, thanks to our rather awesome (if we do say so ourselves) #herohillxmas Advent Calendar, a Christmas themed Old School Monday seemed in order. I was about to do this from scratch, when [...]
Sorry for the lateness of this week’s OSM, but Sunday was my birthday, and so I celebrated by watching my beloved Saints trounce the naughty Lions and took a break from the Sunday night OSM prep. But as you might know, if you’re a super-dedicated hill-fan or the only Naedoo-stalker known to man, I share [...]
This here OSM was originally on tap for a few weeks ago, but the passing of the legendary Heavster meant the last two weeks were dedicated to him. The inspiration for this one is, somewhat tangentially, my viewing of the ATCQ doc Beats, Rhymes & Life. First off, if you’re at all interested in [...]
Well, it’s been almost a week since we found out the legendary Heavy D had passed away, and it certainly hasn’t gotten any easier to stomach. I still have no idea what caused Heavy’s death, and it doesn’t seem like there is much consensus out there other than some information about Heav suffering from some [...]
Well HPX ’11 has come and gone, and with it goes the quest to try and post a song from every HPX band (I failed! It was close though! I think, I kind of lost track) which was taking up all of my hill-time, so it’s back to regularly scheduled programming now. So what better [...]
