I Inhaled. That Was The Point.


I'm hoping that maybe one of the amusing (or warped) amongst you will come up with a clever caption for this pic. One of my homies has already dubbed it "Obama Wit A Gangsta Lean". Lord...you gotta love the intellectually impaired...

Anyway, I could have just blown some smoke up your collective ass as to why my next post isn't finished yet, but that would have been a total drag...don't ya think?

Have a cigarette and a smile, kid...

Great stuff as always Scholar. Really just rolling by to say hello, haven't commented in a little bit.

Hope 2008 is treating you well mate, keep bringin' that hot shit!

Cheers,

Dan

There may be no greater thrill in my sad little life than spotting a sample... I think the horns in that Sidney Pinchback cut are in Wu-Tang's "Shame On a N-a"... Consider my day made.

Obama looks like he ready to pimp slap someone who just told him to put it out.

Always like me some Lim Taylor. I'll have to check out the other non hippty hoppity stuff

The Incredible Hawkes said...

Yo, What's good, Scholar. I literally happened to find this blog maybe two weeks ago, and I'm amazed at all the positive content and just straight knowledge you have brought to the net. Most definitely, I have been spreading the word. Keep the great music flowing (thank you for the major music upgrade on my comp BTW) and keep bringing more and more "Word From Your Moms".

Charlie Manson said...

Obama is addicted to the nic-o-tine.

Darcy said...

HNY Scholar, yes not much free time for me either hence the belated greetings (well no free time for blogging but it's not all work either, still buzzing after a New York trip). Respect reciprocated of course - you continue to be a musical education. Regular visitors here can be justified in claiming a Masters Degree in all that's best in music on our little planet.

I had forgot about that Black Ice video. Im gonna ditc and find my Goodie Mob Still Standing disc real soon, havent listened in ages. Great stuff Schooly Scholar.

Jaz said...

wow Sidney Pinchback's "Soul Strokes" is incredible...all of the tracks here are but that one has been on repeat.

Scholar said...

Mixtape Monster---Yeah, I think Donald Goines would have liked this guy for prez...no doubt.

Dan---For some reason, I can't comment on FDB now...it disappears after I submit. Either way, those interview spots (especially w/ Ski) have been impressive as hell, mate. Good looks.

Bjorn---I don't want to fuck up your good day, but the story as to why this sounds like the "Shame On A Nigga" sample is a little complicated. The Wu joint actually features a sample of "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson. One of Syl's labelmates at Twinight Records was Sidney Pinchback, who did an instrumental take on the song. If you dig through the Souled On Samples, I'm sure you'll find Syl's track. Easy mistake to make, though...

Anon 1---Nice.

Travis---Are you AWOL now or what, cousin? Haven't talked to you in a minute. As soon as I find you, let's put on some Lim records and get shitty drunk.

Hawkes---I'm late in the game on getting really into Labelle, but I think "Lady Marmalade" kind of distorted my perception of what they were all about.

Chigganese---Certain things that people say really keep me inspired. Your comment was a highlight of my day. Much gratitude and I hope to keep earning that respect. One.

Charlie Grrl---Obama's got me on speed dial now because I'm the only one who really understands his Nic-O-Tine addiction.

Darcy---Next time you come to the States we should hook up and take the dollar bins by storm. Hope you went home with a truckload of delicious vinyl.

As always, it's wonderful to hear from you.

Commish---The best part of that vid is Cee-Lo on the floor lookin' all demonic with that teddy bear. That's classic ish right there...

Jaz---Haven't heard from my favorite Kiwi in a minute. Hope you've been well, fam.

The Sidney Pinchback has gotten a lot of play at my crib for years now, so I know how you feel.

Peace, bro.

Anon 2---Ha ha...that's a great caption.
