Spoonie Gee – The Unkut Interview

Thanks to Will and Aaron from Tuff City records, I had the chance to speak to pioneering Harlem rapper Spoonie Gee last week, who set the standard for street tales and slick talk on his earlier work for Enjoy and Sugarhill before he enjoyed a late 80′s comeback with Marley Marl and Teddy Riley providing the cutting edge beats. After enduring some rocky times for most of the 90′s, he’s currently in the process of recording one last project before he retires from music for good.

Robbie: Being from Harlem, in the early days before records, did you have to travel to see shows?

Spoonie Gee: I went to The Bronx, that’s the first place I saw Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five. First time I seen him, I think it was P.A.L on Webster Avenue. I used to go see the Funky 4 + 1, Fantastic Five.

How had you heard about them?

I heard a tape of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Four MC’s at the time, this was before Raheim joined them.

Considering both the influence that James Brown has had on Pete Rock’s career, and Mr. Rock’s tale of meeting the great man as a child, it’s only right that he pays musical tribute with this collection of rap tracks that sampled the Godfather of Soul:

“I met James Brown when I was seven years old. My mom took me to a concert in Mt. Vernon, New York. He came and performed and me and my younger brother met him. My younger brother was six and I was seven and we met James Brown. It was crazy! When we met him I think he passed something on to me. I wasn’t the same after I met him.”

Him-Lo feat. Big Nawz – Valore Bathrobes

If you caught my footage of the Kool G Rap and DJ Polo show in Philly last year, you would have noticed that huge dude standing on stage next to G, chomping on a cigar. Turns out he’s a fellow by the name of Big Nawz, who is not only KGR’s road manager but also been known to drop a rhyme from time to time, as he’s done for this guest spot with Da Inappropriate.



Your Old Droog feat. Rast RFC – No Message

kia-sportage-commercial

This is the best thing I’ve heard from both Droog and Rast yet. Better yet, it’s produced by the mighty P Brothers, who we haven’t heard any new music from in some time. There’s a show featuring Timeless Truth, Rast RFC and Your Old Droog at Webster Hall on 3 September if you’re in need of some CRC-approved rap.



The Science: What Is The GOAT Rap Beer?

Ever wondered what the most popular beer in rap is? For scientific purposes, I assigned my crack team of weed carriers to compile the drinking habits of 76 78 rapper dudes based on lyrics from actual tracks (and ignoring the dozens of paid St. Ides advertisements) to establish which brand is the undisputed king of beers. While the result is certainly no surprise, you can examine the data below and enjoy the wonders of the Interactive GOAT Rap Beer Pie Chart (c) CRC. Next level, yo. Except if you’re on your celly, in which case you won’t see jack, Jack. The genius of the pie chart means that I can keep adding entries as they’re suggested, which automatically makes this whole thing a million times more useful than Rap Dummy.

Cole James Cash - Sofia Rose 1

Cole James Cash drops the second track from his album dedicated to the gals of pr0n who live extra large. Let’s hope that he at least gets broken off a little something something by one of them for all his hard work.

“This is the second single from the album BBW A Pornographic Opera I chose a song about Sofia Rose because that Teena Marie sample was so fitting. Not to mention shes a serious talker in her scenes. You not hip hop if you aint never jerked off to a scene of a woman beggin for cum on her face dunny”
