Bay Area rap music isn’t afraid to push the levels upward when it comes to artistic content. Beautiful Hustle has a dope hyphee video with KEAK Da SNEAK and E-40 on blast at her site. Click the link here and watch the video. Hopefully all the hits won’t smash her bandwidth.
Shouts to my boy GUY RILLA, the TECHWHORE. Dude straight-laced me with a concept album from KIRBY DOMINANT and CHRIS SINISTER titled ‘Niggaz and White Girlz’. Don’t let the title put you off. This shit is some of the best Hip-Hop I have listened to in a long time. When was the last time that you listened to an entire album just because it was good? If you are younger than thirty (or Black?!?) you won’t recognize a single sample on their album.
That isn’t exactly true either, but if you grew up in the eighties without any white friends then you missed out on some innovative and creative music. KIRB and CHRIS freak their entire album with new wave pop music samples. The loop from GARY NUMAN’s ‘Cars’ is sick to death and when you listen to these dudes rhyme over the track you may just realize what the missing link is.
There is a vast treasure trove of untapped samples that exists in the land known as ‘white music’ which 1980′s new wave occupies along with punk rock and several other genres. Current producers are either ignorant or scared of repurposing this music, but there is a tremendous amount of soul contained in the grooves of THOMAS DOLBY, the CLASH, INXS, KRAFTWERK, GARY NUMAN, NINE INCH NAILS, the POLICE, et.al.
It was a grand plot of the devil to name people Black and white since no human can actually be either extreme tone. Humans in their ultimate folly and lazy stupidity have accepted this division because they want to believe that there will be some privilege that it engenders. Possibly a V.I.P. pass to the champagne room. Some heaven on Earth. Whatever. I am not going to pretend that the KIRB and CHRIS album will bring you closer to GOD, but it is a damn good album to keep in the car while driving.
