Old School Mondays makes a return appearance with this Monie Love classic for a couple reasons. I heard it twice randomly in a couple days over the weekend, once in a coffee shop and once via the shuffle here at my house. As anyone who has heard it knows itâ€™s a groovy, amazingly catchy tune, [...]
Old School Mondays
Yesterday was the Ackâ€™s birthday, and even though a busy vacation day means this is going up later than Iâ€™d planned, I still wanted to celebrate the occasion with a posting of one of his all-time favorite jams. Heâ€™s hardly alone in his love for the signature tune from Oaklandâ€™s Souls Of Mischief, I also [...]
Two Kings In A Cipher - Movinâ€™ 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 weekâ€™s Old School Monday jam. Well the first one I thought of might confuse most folks, as the song itself isnâ€™t hoops-related at all, but the video for Two Kings In [...]
Well it seems Iâ€™ve arrived at Mondayâ€™s end without posting my tradition Old School Hip Hop jam (well, Iâ€™d traditionally been doing multi-song OSM posts for years, but for various reasons Iâ€™ve recently switched this to one old school jam per Monday. Hereâ€™s to new traditions!), but D-Sisiveâ€™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 Natureâ€™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.

Seems today is Bob Marleyâ€™s birthday, so I figured we might as well celebrate with the most famous Marley sample in Old School hip hop history - EPMDâ€™s Strictly Business, the title track from their debut album. Â Obviously an amazing jam, but of course itâ€™s not really a Bob Marley sample that is uses, but it famously flips the riff from Eric Claptonâ€™s cover of I Shot The Shreriff. Â So not strictly Marley I guess, but still a fitting OSM-style tribute Iâ€™d say. Happy Birthday Bob.
Iâ€™ll freely admit to not knowing much about Etta James, outside of the fact that she seemed to be a pretty amazing woman. That said, I certainly had a song come to mind when I heard about her passing a couple weeks ago - it just so happens that the song which started playing in [...]
Iâ€™ll happily cop to this post essentially being a re-up (except for the Come On Letâ€™s Move It remix) of this rather enjoyable OSM from a couple years ago, but at this point Iâ€™ve done so many of these old school posts that repitition is inevitable. Plus itâ€™s Special Ed! And on the cover heâ€™s [...]
Greetings, and happy old school new year! I was still on holiday last week, so I thought Iâ€™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 weâ€™re a week away from Christmas, and that weâ€™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 weekâ€™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 youâ€™re a super-dedicated hill-fan or the only Naedoo-stalker known to man, I share [...]
