In the year leading up to The Chronicdisturbing headlines overshadowed his music: a punch by Dre shattered another producer's jaw; MTV News reported on a shooting that left four bullets in his leg; he totaled his car; and his house burned down. In MayDre left a music industry convention in New Orleans in handcuffs after allegedly participating in a brawl that left a year-old stabbed and four police officers wounded.
None of this even accounts for his attack on rapper and Pump it Up! The July shooting was in South Central at a party, where, Dre claimed, he was among a group calling someone's girlfriend ugly, whereas the assaulted producer was Damon Thomassoon prompting Eazy-E to comment, "He had the Dee Barnes thing, breaking that kid's jaw, driving his car off the cliff, getting shot, New Orleans. With Howard's attorneys expected to claim this as an influence and mitigating factor at his sentencing, the widow, Linda Sue Davidson, filed in October a product-liability lawsuit alleging gross negligence via music that incites "imminent lawless action".
Interviewed, she said, "Ron Howard may have pulled the trigger, but I think Tupac, Interscope, and Time Warner share in the guilt for Bill's death and they ought to take responsibility for their actions" [Chuck Philips, "Testing the Limits"L.

By August, the Body Count album went gold—over copies sold—but over 1 stores pulled it from their shelves. An intermediary label may accept into its own catalog a small label's releases, thereby distributed with the intermediary's catalog.
Yet the major label—Warner Music, a Time Warner company in — controls this distribution. Lucie, Floridathe brutalized and mutilated body of Mollie Mae Frazier, age 81, was found in a field near her home. Victor Brancaccio, 16, once an altar boy, but otherwise troubled, would recall listening on his walkman to The Chronic track "Stranded on Death Row" when the elderly woman, a passerby, unwittingly provoking his attack on her, had criticized him for rapping the coarse lyrics aloud.
And although other rap acts with lyrical misogyny predatinglike N. A and the Geto Boysbecame targets for it in —year of The Chronic and Snoop Dogg—it was here that misogynous lyrics overtook murderous lyrics in the cries against gangsta rap. For a broad view, see Carlos D. But we're here to say that we will not stand for it. We know what is right. We know what is wrong. Music is not the killer, it is not the ill. The ill is the streets". Willie Stiggers, 15, an aspiring rapper, before climbing onto the steamroller, shouted, " No justice!
No peace! Janice told him, "You did not listen, my brother! The Reverend said he was not attacking rap or rappers. He was attacking negative rap! But he should be attacking the white power structure, who own the record companies, who own the cable stations. He said it was mainly their fault because they were the ones with the money.
Actions speak louder than words! He's attacking us black rappers now! You tell me what negative is! DeLores Tucker, 78; civil rights pioneer led a spirited campaign against gangsta rap"Los Angeles Times14 Oct A couple of tracks are confusingly listed in the track-listing, but nothing actually new, so let's just clear those up real quick.
And while I thought "Centaur Gordski Rmx " might actually by an unheard take on the song, it's actually the remix from the Anticon 12" B-side. Gordski 's name appears nowhere on that record's label or cover, so I never realized it wasn't by Buck himself So, blah blah blah, that's enough about the previously released songs that us fans all already have. Let's talk exclusives. Now, even if you didn't pay attention to the dates, it's obvious this album closely followed Secret House Against the Worldbecause all the exclusive remixes are from that album.
It features the same or similar guitar riff for the body of the instrumental, and the cuts are the same. But the piano has been changed up, and the whole thing sounds down-pitched and darker. And where the short, original mix it's less than two and a half minutes ends, this new mix builds into a crescendo with new instruments and non-verbal vocals.
It was interesting, and the production except maybe for the drums was effective. But the fact that he shared the vocal duties with Claire Benes who, to the album's detriment, was all over Secret House Against the Worldwhere they constantly go back and forth, alternating words or phrases in a single sentence, is really abrasive and annoying.
It was just the sort of thing that plagued Secret House - it's like he thought, "I'll put a woman speaking with a French accent all over this album and it'll sound really avant-garde, regardless of the fact that her cadence is dull and her delivery's sleepy, lifeless and sucks all the energy out of the songs like a vacuum cleaner. Okay, he probably didn't think that second part. In fact, there's barely any perceivable difference at all. This version was just mastered slightly different, maybe?
I dunno, every vocal and instrumental bit from this version seems to be on that version, and vice versa. Oh well. Anyway, unlike the two versions of "Drawing Curtains," the differences here are easy to identify; there's whole instrumental riffs and elements that are unique to this "Raw Demo" version.
It's exclusive just by way of it being an instrumental for a song that was only released as a full, vocal version, anyway; but here we also get to hear a different take on the music and how "Drunk Without Drinking" might've otherwise sounded. And then the last song on this album is probably it's biggest selling point, because it's a song that is entirely exclusive to this album, and hasn't been otherwise released in any mix or capacity.
Pennies in the well, I wanna sing like Bill Withers. Card carrying member: Neighborhood Task Watch, keepin' our children safe from the Sasquatch. Any last thoughts? Some spare change? A little bit? If I live to be a hundred, I will always be illiterate. You definitely get the sense of how this is something he recorded and couldn't find a home for, so a tour CD was a fitting place to make it a little exclusive. At the end of the day, this is about what you'd expect from a tour CD. Not worthy of being a proper album or suitable for wide release, but as a little scrappy little bonus for the more devoted fans, it's a nice little score.
Though, for the fans who have everything i. So you have to figure: you'd basically just be tracking this down for one cool remix and one new song which is good but not great.
And since only were made, that won't be too easy. So, more of a collector's thing, I guess. InMarley Marl made history with by assembling one of the greatest collective of hip-hop artists ever, The Juice Crewand releasing perhaps the most legendary posse cut of all time, "The Symphony" off his debut album.
And on practically the complete opposite end of the hip-hop spectrum, that same year, Kurtis Blow put out his eighth and final album, Back By Popular Demand. But for a brief moment, those diverse paths crossed, as the lead single and title cut of Blow's album featured none other than Marley Marl. Also, interestingly, big-shot producer Salaam Remi gets "Concept By" credit I'm sure it has more to do with the fact that Salaam is Van Gibbs' son.
Now, let's talk about the production for a minute. And making that loop seems to be the majority of the work Electrik, Gibbs and Blow really did here. The bulk of the rest of the music, certainly the stuff that really stands out here, is the "Scratch Production," done by none other than our man Marley Marl.
It's certainly possible that any of the other producers added the "Back! By popular demand! One really cool element is that the song has looped crowd cheers throughout But then at the end, the crowd sounds get cut up, and it sounds fresh! Unfortunately, Blow the MC isn't up to the track.
Gibbs and Blow share credit for the lyrics the album just says "Written by: K. Sainsbury," but the 12" specifies credit to those two for the lyrics. It's a bit mind boggling that it took two men to come up with such simplistic, corny stuff as, "I know you missed me, so don't diss me; be down with the history So let your fingers snap.
Or whatever makes you move CazKool Moe Dee and Melle Mel wouldn't ever have spit silliness like that; and even Blow himself was capable of much smoother rhymes on earlier stuff like "Rappin' Blow. And that wish that came true with this album's reception.
So, this 12" has the 12" Version, which seems to be exactly the same as the album version, and the 7" version, which is just a shorter edit. But there are some more interesting mixes on the B-side. If you read the credits of the album, you'll see a "Trumpet Solo" credited to Marc Leford on this song. I was quite baffled by this as a kid, because there is no trumpet or anything resembling a trumpet anywhere to be heard.
But they must be crediting the work recorded exclusively for this 12", because here there are two instrumental mixes called "Black [as opposed to Back] By Popular Demand," the first of which is the Trumpet Mix.
Blow's entire vocal track has been replaced by a trumpet. Then there's also an Organ Version, where his vocals are replaced by a plectrum banjo. I'm just kidding, it was replaced by an organ, of course. By the way, this isn't the only work Marley did for Blow. But unlike "Back By Popular Demand," you would never recognize "Love" as Marley's work if you didn't read the liner notes. In fact, the soft keyboard tones sound a lot like the stuff Blow put on a ton of records he produced back in the early 80s.
So, to wrap things up, this single is like the whole album. Sure, on one level it's wack and easy to dismiss. But it's all strangely endearing and catchy.
And it's certainly got a unique mixture of musical sounds that nobody else was brave or goofy enough to match. This is a time capsule not only of the wild, unrepeatable 80s, but a brief period when rap albums were starting to get big budgets and no idea what to do with them. And some of the stuff on the album "Blue Iguana," anybody? And, hey, it comes in an awesome picture cover! What's not to like? Thursday, August 4, Infinity and Grandmixer D.
There's a couple reasons you might know of The Convicts. You might've read Unkut 's king-making post some years backdubbing the Rap-A-Lot duo "a testament to the genius of ignorant rap. But if you don't actually know them for their music, you're missing out. The Convicts, who have an odd habit of contradictorily referring to themselves as The Ex- Convicts in their songs, consists of just Big Mike and later of The Blac Monks.
They only dropped one album on Rap-A-Lot Records in before going their separate ways. And this is the one single off of that album.
Depending on your attitude, you might be pleasantly surprised or heartily disappointed that there's nothing particularly ignorant about "This Is For the Convicts" at all. Big Mike and are both really just flexing their spitting skills, kicking your basic, "we're the toughest on the block" rhymes. Mike impresses more, coming off as a seasoned vet even though he wasn't yet one at that stage, but comes nice as well.
It certainly helps that they're blowing over the dark bassline Paris used for "The Devil Made Me Do It," but laid over a cracking, classic break that really ups the energy of the groove, but keeps it nice and hard. None of that later-year keyboard sound of later Rap-A-Lot releases, this is pure hip-hop. The one drawback to the song is the minute long intro, where they sign a humorous song about life in prison. What you might find amusing the first time is a torturous minute to get through after you've heard it a few times.
Fortunately, the music changes drastically enough that you can see on the vinyl where the song changes and you can needle drop right to the good stuff. The B-side is another dope beat, slower and chunkier.
It runs a bit dangerously close to the intro of the last song, however, in that, while it's not badly sung, it's still a jokey song that can wear out its novelty value with regular rotations. It's called "Wash Your Ass" and it's a collection of amusing anecdotes and complaints about people with poor hygiene.
Both songs are straight off the album, but the 12" does also include both instrumentals. That's nice for "This Is for the Convicts" just because it's a dope track, but even better for "Wash Your Ass," because at this point, it's the preferable way for me to listen to this song. If any of the less original producers out there would like to jack this beat and repurpose it for a more straight-forward acappella, I wouldn't be adverse.
Either way, though, this is a nice, underrated 12" that deserves a little appreciation. Newer Posts Older Posts Home. Subscribe to: Posts Atom. Latest Comments. Most Popular Posts.
