A Meme

Passed over from Joey. No homo.

Total volume of music files on my computer:
13.6 GB if you count data CD's i burned cause i ran out of hardrive space. Um, i dont have an iPod. Shit is expensive.

Last CD I bought was:
Wait.

You buy CD's?

Music CD's you mean?

Not blank CD's you put music on, but CD's with music in them?

Thats insane. I dont believe you.

Actually, I bought "Virtuosity" by Chops from the bargain bin couple 'a days ago.

Song playing right now:
Mash Out Posse, "Hilltop Flava (No Sleep Till Brooklyn)" - Nothing incredibly special, but I got it stuck on my head.

M.F. Grimm, "Do It For the Kids" - Produced by Rob Swift, pretty minimalistic but really great, has a horn on the chorus. Grimm has a great voice, and i enjoy the lyrics.

Five songs I listen to a lot these days:
This list changes evey 3 days or so. But here goes.

1) Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, "It's Like That" - Basically the whole album, but this one has been getting alot of plays especially. Nhjic. I just love the beat, no homo. C.L.'s greatest talent is how much at home he sounds over any Pete Rock track. Pete needs this kid (nh) to rap over his beats....the Soul Survivor projects and whatnot have been pretty good, but they eventually need to put out an album together again.

2) Public Enemy & Stephen Stills, "He Got Game (DVD Version)" - Yeah, they rock the laid-back sample pretty well, nhjic. The DVD version has a third verse and some extra guitar playing from Stephen Stills. The Long Island Community Choir (or whatever, sorry cant remember what they are called) sound good singing, Stephen is great, even though its him singing the same shit from way back when. Chuck has one of those laid-back analytical flows - the song plays into the the metaphor of life and basketball alot, and i like it alot. "Last time in the church be the last time in the church / Dead pledge alligence to CD's and movies"

3) Sepultura, "Kiowas" - This is a instrumental tribal jam from a brazillian metal band. The guitar playing I find enjoyable, as well as whatever theyre using for percussion. Did you know they just covered "Black Steel In The Hour of Chaos" into Brazillian rap/metal? Trust me, it's not as bad as it sounds.

4) Proyecto Uno, "Latinos" - I found this CD again, and it was basically the first "rap" song I liked - even though it has strong merengue feel as well as some house influence. Looking back on it, it wasn't the genius I thought it was back then, but it's still good, and it has a somewhat sentimental value. Major no homo.

5) Public Enemy, "Brothers Gonna Work It Out" - Underrated song. The beat packs a killer bassline and some loud samples and manages to bury Prince's guitar solo underneath. The Bomb Squad gives you an in-your-face beat, Chuck D sounds angry and determined, Terminator X does some good scratching and Flava drops the usual back vocals...pretty familiar formula, but it just sounds so damn good. Nhjic.

And now I pass it off to, no homo just in case:
Umm....

Fly.
Chiseven.
J-Dub.

I just noticed theyre all white. Damn. for the sake of diversity:
Bookman.
