Rappin Ass Thursdays #32

Posted on Apr 22nd, 2010

Was the last one of these really TWO MONTHS ago? Thats a lot of missed Thursdays, a lot of rappin ass raps left behind… Make up for lost time and hit the jump for a bunch of stuff that has caught my ear since then (and hasn’t been talked to death elsewhere). Underground and under-appreciated, poppy-as-hell but still awesome, lessgooo… Read More

Rappin Random Ass Thursdays #31

Posted on Feb 18th, 2010

I keep a RAT folder on the desktop for all the new stuff that piques my interest enough for general column consideration, then pick through for standouts to post for you, the good people of the Fool’s Gold website. Tonight it’s not about the newest or the “best of,” we’re gonna go straight to the mp3 oddballs: Ryan Leslie radio commercials, mixtapes based on Trey Parker movies, and more of the raps that make you go hmmmmmm.

Rappin Ass Thursdays #29

Posted on Jan 7th, 2010

Before I get to brand new music in this young decade, gotta cleanse the palate of some late, late 2009 favorites in steady rotation over the break thanks to the “All Mix Holiday Weekend” on Hot 97 (which let DJs like Enuff, Camilo, et al dictate their own shows for the most part).

Without fail, the standout sets were always club excursions, ALWAYS with a Jersey shout out, mixing “Percolator” with new tunes like DJ Frosty’s “Ride That Wave” – maybe more on that in another post… – and these midtempo, East Coast rap-n-b breaks, featuring all the tunes after the jump (along with the occasional Jay Elec-yarmulke “Exhibit C”). Who said radio was dead? Read More

Rappin Ass Thursdays #28: Re-Up Gang

Posted on Dec 17th, 2009

For just over half a year, I’ve been posting up jams every Thursday without any master plan or ulterior motives, other than wanting to share some new music and (maybe) a thought or two with y’all, no filler. So in the governing spirit of the column, I decided to simply re-upload ALL the tunes that have been posted here so far (aside from the full mixtapes, videos, etc) for a year end post, rather than put together some kind of wrap-up list or “best of” ranking. It’s more fun to have you dig into 120+ tunes and pick em yourself!

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3

Of course, if you wanna go back and check the individual archives for my pithy comments and hyperlinks as they were originally uttered (typed?) I’m all for it – it’s just that random mp3 links on the interweb have a nasty habit of going dead ass dead. In fact, this whole schpiel was inspired by a comments-section request for the DJ Speedy-produced “Club Hoppin” by BP, a track to which Usershare was particularly unkind. (And the only joint I couldn’t dig back up on my own – please send it over if you have it!) Stay tuned for many, many more RATs in the new year.
