6 Records I Found This Weekend-80s and 90s Hip Hop, Dance and House Music
Here are some records i found this past weekend at a couple used record stores- mostly dollar bin finds.
Here is a single that is pretty much just rapping over Gary Numan's "cars
" i had never heard this one before, but will always grab any early 80s hip hop, as it is the best era for that genre.
"Murder She Wrote"
wow, I've actually never heard of this one before...I'd say its a sounds like a mix between NWA and vanilla ice...but, you know-with a solo woman MC. Its certainly not the worst stuff i ever heard and she has decent flow and delivery but i think its safe to say she sounds...ugh, less than genuine? Also 1990 beats isn't my favorite sound-tends to be corny and dated sounding, in my ultra -music snob opinion . I guess she started a metal (?) band in 1993 but did eventually do another rap record in 2015-which is kinda techno goth sounding, kinda reminding me of DJ Swamp.
"Back to the Bronx"
Im thinking that they are going for a tag team/ naughty by nature kinda sound here. This is actually a group with a member of poison clan and was released on luke "i can't legally call it luke skywalker records anymore" records(2 live crew).
Money No and Money Bee
Ha i bought this thinking it was a low key hip hop group, but it turns out to be some DEEP HOUSE. I don't normally listen to too much modern dancey type stuff, preferring my 80s and disco-but i thought this one sounds pretty good on my first listen! Im always down for some obscurities...
Novel f/ Kool G Rap
Found another record with KOOL G RAP in the dollar bin (actually 2 copies in 1 sleeve) so i had to grab. It turns out to be a lot of "radio hook-y 2010s sound-far from my favorite, but ill grab anything kool g rap for a buck any day, as i would throw him up there as GOAT or definitely right there. So its kinda funky r and b number about "i can sex you better" or whatever and G comes in like"ill slay you like i just did 20 years in the yard" LEGENDARY
So this is a response record to oran juice jones "the rain" where they flip it around, i think the dudes gonna get flushed down the drain or something. i think the other response record i have was probably better, but this is probably weirder. i'd say we need more response records these days-but i guess thats what youtube is, really.
I hope you liked my post!
