Old School Mondays:: PW Wolf's 45 Live Edition

I hinted at this last week, in my original post for Peanut Butter Wolf's 45 Live box set of hip hop vinyl singles, but the track list for his collection provided too irresistible. So, that's what you're going to get, more songs featured in the set, but first things first, if you haven't heard about 45 Live, go and to check it out.

I said pretty much all I needed to say about the awesomeness of this set in my previous post, but for this one here I just went down the list and picked out some notable songs, and preferably ones I haven't posted before. Rockin' It is just a one of those legendary songs that never sounds old, despite how old school the style it uses is. Earlier this year I posted on Mantronix, but somehow I didn't post Hardcore Hip Hop. Better later than never I suppose. I never managed to get my hands on a JVC Force album back in the day, but it's one of those mythical NY groups I'd always heard about. Because of that, I'd always wanted to post on them, but never got around to it. This is a good enough reason I'd say.

Cash Money & Marvelous is another group I've posted on, but I didn't post Mighty Hard Rocker, and it's a great jam. I realized that I've ever posted The Bridge is Over before. So consider that a wrong now righted.

Some great old school songs from a great collection.

Quick Hitters:: Peanut Butter Wolf's 45 Live

I was going to save this and work it into next week's OSM, but I thought it was too awesome to save (and who knows, it might still be OSM'd), but Stone's Throw head honcho Peanut Butter Wolf has released 45 Live, a set of classic hip hop 45's he re-edited himself. It comes in mp3 and CD format, but the vinyl is the sweetness: ten 7-inch singles, 18 songs in total, all packed up in a snazzy tin (the pic is right up thurr, but check here for the full deets.

If you know anything about PBW and Stone's Throw, you're likely expecting some real classics, and the collection doesn't disappoint. Fearless Four, Spoonie G, Busy B, Dimples D, Just Ice, The Biz, Mantronix, JVC Force, Stezo, Kane, Cash Money & Marvelous, and BDP to name just a few. You should expect nothing else from PB though:

This record is such a great honor for me to be involved with. I’m sure it will hardly sell any units cuz the music industry SUCKS and most people only wanna hear bullshit (just look at which music videos get the most views on youtube or the top 10 sellers on itunes), but regardless, it’s a big deal. I mean, as a kid growing up in San Jose, CA when all this stuff came out, I was hooked and half a lifetime later I still am.

Those of us on the north side of 30 can certainly identify with that, but it doesn't matter your age, if you are into hip hop, I'd be shocked if you weren't as psyched on this as I was. So anyway, let's prove PB wrong and buy some of these bad boys.

MP3:: T La Rock - It's Yours (Radio Mix)

MP3:: Biz Markie - Make The Music With Your Mouth Biz

MP3:: Stezo - It's My Turn
