Old-School Hip-Hop Mixes Rule

The Stoke Of An Epically Smooth Transition

Last night I really wasn’t feeling like finishing washing the many Greek dinner pots and pans.

As much as I don’t always super love doing dishes at 9pm, I will do them anyway as waking up to the sight or the smell in the sink with the greasy ‘eggwhite’ water is worse IMO.

That said Easy, Biggie, Snoop, Salt-N-Pepa, Dre, Souls, Fugees, Tribe, WuTang, Missy Elliott, Cube, Jurassic 5, Latyrx, old OutKast, Westside Connection, Pac…basically anyone or group on this list… https://digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/best_rap-artists.html have songs that make up my list of cleaning, snowboarding and when-I’m-angry music.

So Jeff put on a 90’s hip-hop complilation track from YouTube for me.

Usually throwing up tunes song by song, this was a DJ mixed set of a bunch of tunes so I wouldn’t have to keep changing it manually.

Listening, the sick and smooth transitions from lyric to lyric, beat to beat quickly brought me back. Ya, I got stoked on doing the dishes and hooded out in the kitchen…cause sometimes you can’t take the street out of her.

Transient in my late teen years and early adulthood, taking refuge in the lifestyle while it was the ‘golden age’ of hip-hop/rap, hitting up every live show everywhere possible was a must.

Almost every weekend there was a show on the rez at the hall, at the IOOF hall, special after-parties, festivals, snowboard competitions, skate jams, nightclubs and elsewhere. Mixed inbetween raves, punk shows were also popular.

I had the opportunity to see The Up In Smoke Tour but for some reason didn’t go (I can’t remember why)…but of all concerts, I’m kicking myself now that I didn’t make it happen for that one.

Not long ago Souls Of Mischief came to Kamloops and I couldn’t make it because I was sick. Next time, I’m there.

When even a few people are ‘allowed’ to get together again in person, I’ll take any live (old-school) hi-hop show that comes my way.

The world needs good live hip-hop again…anyone with me?
