I forgot how good this song is until Marc Davis reminded me on the last post. Keith goes beyond mere taunts and shits on Moe Dee’s entire legacy on this one, while using a Kool Moe vocal sample on the hook! Now that’s classic Ultra.

Man, I haven’t heard this since the early 90s when Melle Mel (not of Furious Five fame) used to play this on WAMO during his Saturday night mix show. Great forgotten track.

Turn it Up? UFO? I’ll give you 1991′s Rise’n’ Shine only because it sounds exactly like 7A3′s “Coolin’ in Cali” which came out 3 years earlier. Can you say innovating to the point of playing catch up…

“Turn It Up” was classic. I’ll posting stuff like that after the next (and final) post on the topic.

why the picture of Coldcrush? Did I miss the wit? Whilst your riding Kool Keith’s wave of shitting on homepiss are you gonna post the Busy Bee Starski battle for a little clarity?
That wild west sh*t was horrible but what’s moe dee got to prove? He paid his dues long before worldwide heads got easy props on blogspots.

^ I’m not calling it either way – I’m a Moe Dee fan too. The Crush pic is because they get name-checked in the song.

word em up. I was just being a miserable shite. ‘N I haven’t heard ‘bust the facts’ in years so nice one for putting it on. DJ Rockin Rob is still nice on the wheels. peace

I always liked Kool Moe Dee. I don’t think he ever put out a classic lp and his beat selection was not up to par with his peers in the late 80s. Not to mention, my favorite Moe Dee song was the LL dis, Let’s Go. I remember the radio playing the shit outta that song in the summer of 88. I don’t remember hearing Jack the Ripper on the radio.

jack the ripper was huge on hip hop radio in ny…it was the only song they did play off that debacle walking with a panther.

Comment by mercilesz 03.01.08 @

Merc, I grew up in Indiana and our hip hop radio was below average at best. From 85 to 88, I bought music based on album covers, music mags, and word of mouth. I am not even sure why I bought How Ya Like Me Now

Comment by turtle 03.01.08 @

i love that song…if u have it on vinyl i could always use another copy

Comment by mercilesz 03.01.08 @

murg…post treach3 jams that rocked….”do u know what time it is?” and “go see the doctor” both rocked really hard…..

Comment by mercilesz 03.01.08 @

OK, I really don’t care what peoples opinions are about other people are because “opinions” are like “ass holes” everyone has one. But what pisses me off is when people use my “work” my “photos” to express their opinions! So with that said , please don’t use my photos. Moe happens to be a personal friend on mine.

Peace!

Joe,

Great stuff in there. I love it and ’nuff respect for what you’ve done. But aren’t you kind of happy that ’cause of Robbie using your pic I ended up spending time checking out your entire portfolio, when I otherwise would have never seen it or known about it?

Comment by haroon 03.04.08 @
