Old School Mondays:: Welcome Cillian Acker Edition

It's a long weekend up here in Halifax, perhaps the only really nice and sunny one we'll have this summer, so under ordinary circumstances I might not have even prepared an OSM, but what we have here are circumstances far from normal. This weekend, the Ack and his lovely wife Nic welcomed their first child to this world: Cillian Christian Acker. The Ack has alluded to the fact that their little guy has some sizable challenges ahead of him, but now that he's finally here, I just want to say welcome to Cillian and congrats to Bry and Nic.

So what to welcome Cillian with? Well, in my opinion, there is no better OSM-way to welcome a new baby boy than with the The Ruler, and It's A Boy. But this is your average baby boy, this is the Ack's boy we're talking about, so we've got the original version AND the Large Professor Remix. That's just how we roll on an occasion such as this. But that's not all. We need something else for the Ack, and so of course when the Ack and hip hop are concerned, we have to visit the Beastie canon. So, even though it was kind of a ridiculous song, in this case the title has plenty of meaning, so a remix version of Fight For Your Right it is.

Congrats again Bry and Nic.
