House Of Pain – Jump Around (Cassingle)

13 Mar

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.


Run DMC – Raising Hell

1 Nov

ImagePeter Piper, It’s Tricky, My Adidas & Walk This Way. This album was an increda-hit machine. Crazy joints, all of those tracks are worth sussing and dancing to at your house party. Have a house party now!

I was into Run DMC and adidas in a major way when I was consistently pumping these tracks about a decade ago. These guys were in the 80’s hip hop flick Krush Groove which is another masterpiece ya’ll gotta go suss.

Cypress Hill – Black Sunday

30 Aug


So classic, I’ve owned at least 3 different copies of this album in my time. First got put onto it in 2001 by my old Man. Excellent beats combined with great flows makes the quintessential Cypress Hill album.

I don’t have a clue which oppy I copped this cd.

Busta Rhymes – The Coming

30 Aug


By Far Busta’s best album and perhaps unfortunately for him this was his first solo full length release. I’ve had a handful of Busta albums in my possession at one time or the other and the only other Busta album that’s half decent is ‘The Genesis’ which I got recently from an op-shop. This has that beautiful Golden Era (early nineties) sound, more than 3 quarters of the tracks are 4 out of 5 stars. Flow and beats are killer on this one.

A Tribe Called Quest – Midnight Marauders

30 Aug


This was a really sweet find from my recent trip to New York in April 2012. It was from a Salvo’s at 268 West 96th Street

Electric Relaxation & Award Tour are on this baby, two of the tightest songs that if the rest of the album was whack it’d still be a 4 and a half out of 5 stars l.p.

GZA -Liquid Swords

30 Aug


I’ve had a hate/it’s okay relationship with this album. I originally got it from a record store cause I heard it was the best solo Wu-Tang release. Fart noisssssssssse! I wouldn’t claim any being the best but my fav is probably Ghost Face’s Fishscale. I got this from an op-shop in the Northern Suburbs, it was close to a year ago so I don’t remember which oppy it was.

Snoop Doggy Dogg – What’s My Name (Who Am I)

30 Aug


Back when he was the ‘Doggy Dogg’. This single comes in a neat little paper sleeve with solid artwork and I think someone who owned it before me even placed an old school sticker of Snoop on the front. The single includes a 9 minute club version of ‘What’s My Name’. Pretty long but I guess better than most crap you would hear in a club.
