KRS-One & More – The Anthem

Still one of the dopest collaboration songs I have heard to date. This song had the likes of RZA, Tech N9ne, Eminem, Xzibit, Pharoahe Monch, Kool G Rap, Chino XL, and KRS-One all in one song, amazing. This song is off the Sway and Tech CD from back in the day; bought this shit my senior year in high school and still have it, and still listen to it. Enjoy!

Killarmy – Fair, Love & War

Before I got into the “true” underground hip hop scene I was a diehard Wu-Tang fan, I had all their shit. I am still a big fan to this day, bumping whatever classic CD’s I still have of theirs. Back in 1998 my got my car broken into and much of my Wu collection was stolen. I have yet to re-purchase the ones that are gone, maybe one day. Killa Army was affiliated with the Wu, this song is off of their 1997 album Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars.

Blahzay Blahzay – Danger 1995 HQ

I am a huge fan of early 90’s hip-hop whether it was underground or not; those days it seemed that it didn’t matter as much because the music was still raw. Here we have Blahzay Blahzay with Danger; dope track off their Blah Blah Blah album. New York in the house on this one.

Lexicon – Nike Head

Seems as though anyone who follows underground hip-hop is inevitably into shoes; here we have a song from the Lexicon boys about Nike’s. I remember first seeing this video about 10-11 years ago on a VHS tape my buddy bought from Access Hip-Hop; definitely a video to remember. The guys from Lexicon are still doing their thing, check them out in the link below.

MF Doom – Dead Bent High Quality

I have a pretty decent collection of MF Doom CD’s; and of that collection, this is my favorite song from all. Super dope beat, and when it drops, I cant help but nod my head. Enjoy, new MF Doom album coming soon.

Living Legends – Nowyouno

Here is the Living Legends video “Nowyouno”  which was originally off the Stop, Look and Listen VHS from 2000. Yes I do have the video, and no I do not have a VCR hooked up to watch it on. This video was filmed in the old stomping/living grounds for much of the Legends crew; 4001 San Leandro Ave. in east Oakland.  I would like to send a huge shout-out to YouTube for hosting videos I thought I would never see again…word.

Mobb Deep – Shook Ones Part II

This quite possibly could be one of my favorite songs of all time; I know that is saying a lot but I can guarantee this song has probably gotten played more than any other song in my collection. This song is O.G as shit and will never get old. Mobb Deep is still doing their thing however I have not heard much of their music since the late 90’s, but that is my own deal. Check out their shit below.

Alias – “Sixes Last”

Another Anticon joint right here from one of the dopest beat makers in the industry, Alias. This song is off of his Muted CD which is beats only; this track is officially a head nod track. I would say there is probably a minute or so cut off the song so if you want to hear the full version just search for it. Check out some of Alias’ stuff below on Twitter or the Anticon website.

The Shape Shifters-‘Pot Full O’ Gold’ feat. 2Mex, Bleek & Xololanxinco

The Pot Full O’Gold remix was classic track by the Shape Shifters; there were two versions but this one happens to be my favorite. Sorry it is not a video, but if you can’t just enjoy the song for what it is you have issues. The lyrics on this track are second to none; everyone listed on this track brings it super hard, enjoy!
