Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince - Boom! Shake The Room

Copped this one yesterday from Vinnies Bassendean for $0.50. I also got a copy of it last year from Anglicare Belmont in about September (You can see it posted in my archives from (Aug 30 2012).

For some reason my eyes lit up when I saw this for a second time, weird. Anyway go watch Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Boyz II Men - Cooleyhighharmony

$0.50 from Vinnies at 22 Old Perth Road Bassendean on the 12th of March 2013.

Do yourself a favour and peep this clip. Dudes got crazy styles!

P.s Hip Hop style beats with some 90’s R&B pop flavours.

Tony Toni Tone - If I Had No Loot

$0.50 from Vinnies at 22 Old Perth Road Bassendean on 12/3/13

Until coping this tape I’d never heard these guys but Iron Solomon has mentioned them before and looking at the cover the seemed the part.

“If I Had No Loot” is okay, not hip hop, I recommend “Let’s Get Down”. Dj Quik is on that one, top notch!

N.W.A – Express Yourself (Cassette Single)

$0.50 Vinnies Belmont – 29th January 2013

The B-Side to the 12 inch single of this was what emerged me into hip hop at the impressionable age of 10. “A Bitch Iz A Bitch” was my main house jam to bump, Dad would play the clean version of “Express Yourself” then I’d flip it when I wasn’t around and bust round the house droppin’ Ice Cube knowledge on fools.


Vanilla Ice – To The Extreme

Vanilla Ice - To The Extreme

$0.50 from Vinnies (Late 2012) on 215 Bulwer St in North Perth

My old man first had this on cassette around the 2000 mark. It got so thrashed in the car stereo that we not only new the lyrics to “Ice Ice Baby” but I could also still recite you “Havin’ a Roni” & “Play That Funky Music”. Our cassette was grey.


House Of Pain – Jump Around (Cassingle)

House Of Pain - Jump Around (Cassingle)

$0.50 from Bassendean Vinnies (22 Old Perth Road) [Bought 12th of March 2013, 4pm]

Damn you Martine! Not just for your ridiculous name but for making me ruin the paper sleeve with Eucalyptus oil. I was just so pumped up from the classic 90’s anthem that I didn’t see what I was doing until had it been diggedy done (cross 90’s hip hop reference).
By the by, if you go out clubbing in Bali you’ll hear House Of Pain’s ‘Jump Around’ at least 4 times a night.


Above The Rim (VHS)

Above The Rim (VHS)

I think I got this bad boy (ehh, but not really) from the tip in Balga a couple of months ago for a buck. So not op-shop, but on that tip and it was part of a op-shop run.

I love this film, love the inspiration I get from it, the cast and the killer soundtrack. 2pac is hilarious, he takes himself so serious, it’s a riot.

I totally live the struggle, like hood youths. Watch this, ball and channel the spirit of Marlon Wayans. Aww shit!
