Why Boys Will Be Boys Pt. II
Even though we were all beat and ready to go home by 11:30pm, it was reassuring to know that getting older wasn't going to be one big, long, bitching session and that there's still a little room for immaturity, debauchery, and trash-talking. The night finally ended with me and Muttpop getting back to my apartment just in time to avoid a drive-by across the street and seeing a mob of teenagers running from a nearby house party followed by an LAPD chopper minutes later...So maybe being an adult and not having to deal with that kind of drama isn't such a bad thing.
Anyways, since then, I've been feeling a little less pessimistic and decided to call in sick for work tomorrow and go out for some midday drinks and relive my high school days by kicking it at the mall. My playlist today has changed up with my mood, so here some of that good ol' boom bap that everybody loves.
[MP3] Ghostface Killah :: Yolanda's House (feat. Meth & Raekwon)
If you haven't heard this one already, it's my favorite off of the Big Doe Rehab album. I didn't think anyone could've flowed better over this beat than Pharaohe, but this trio shows why they're still at the top of their game with some classic Wu storytelling...from running from the cops to shittin in his pants and leaving footprints on the ceiling how can you not like Ghost?
[MP3] Supastition :: Fountain of Youth
I copped this one off of my favorite hip hop blog, Wake Your Daughter Up; Travis put together this dope Grown Folks Mix for all of us dealing with getting old[er]. Even though I'm still in denial, no other song better suits my current state of mind than this one.
[MP3] Jay Electronica :: Bitches & Drugs (Prod. by Dilla)
In this anti-hip-hop hip-hop song, Jay Electronica churns out some propulsive flows over a chunky, warm, Dilla beat that defies the mainstream with rhymes like "If rap was like blacks in the '60s, / I'm a white cop in riot gear ready to hose down." Damn.
