My Boombox Weighs A Ton...
'Sup, soul babies? Apologies for leaving so much time on your hands to contemplate why I'm such an insufferably lazy bastard. No worries, though...as soon as the temperature drops below 60 degrees, my ass will be staying indoors a lot more often and we can fall in love all over again. Word.
I'm almost finished with a lengthy post that will drag you snitches back to school for a dose of higher learning, and there's a phenomenal guest mix comin' up from one of my long-term affiliates as well.
Until then---easy does it, children. Do it easy...

Still haven't decided exactly how I wanna work out my own tribute to Black Moses, but in the meantime, I thought a lot of you would enjoy DJ Wonder's mix from Shade45's morning show. It blends Hayes' original material with tracks by hip hop artists who've sampled his work...a perfect set for sample seekers and crate diggers worldwide:

Black Merda performing "Cynthy-Ruth"...still doing the damn thing decades later:
Word From Your Moms:
"My fear was not of death itself, but a death without meaning."
"There's no reason for the establishment to fear me. But it has every right to fear the people collectively - I am one with the people."
"If you stop struggling, then you stop life."
