Greatest Of All Time God Straight Up Told Me


The Things A Rap Nerd Thinks About #1:
On The Game and 50's "Hate It Or Love It," how much iller is the song because producers Cool & Dre drop the hi-hats in the chorus? Fantastic.

Part V of Ben's fantastic Beatles rundown today. Thanks to Catch Dubs for the nice link. Ben clearly remembered, it's all caps when you spell the man's name.

And RIP to Mitch Hedberg, both funny and original. Some of his finer jokes:

" I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

At my hotel room, my friend came over and asked to use the phone. I said "Certainly." He said "Do I need to dial 9?" I say "Yeah. Especially if it's in the number. You can try four and five back to back real quick."

I think Pringles initial intention was to make tennis balls. But on the day that the rubber was supposed to show up, a big truckload of potatoes arrived. But Pringles is a laid back company. They said "Fuck it. Cut em up."

Someone handed me a picture and said, "This is a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture of you is when you were younger. "...Here's a picture of me when I'm older." Where'd you get that camera man?

The next time I move I hope I get a real easy phone number, something like 2222222. People will ask, "Mitch, how do I get a hold of you?" I'll say, "Just press two for a while, when I answer, you'll know that you've pressed two enough."

Here's Ben:

After the nearly non-stop recording of Help, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper and the songs that made up Magical Mystery Tour, pressure was starting to take it's toll. After a pilgrimage to India, the Beatles headed back into the studio to record the songs that would become the The Beatles aka The White Album. It was a departure from the unified sounds of the previous LP's, more a compilation of various solo tracks. Although it would be the first double LP to go #1 on the pop charts, Lennon later admitted it should have been trimmed down to one solid album. Regardless there was still plenty of quality, and hip-hop has taken note.

Years before Jay and the Mouse mashed it up today, the White Album provided a nice sonic treat utilized by a Rockaway supervillian on the underground classic 'Doomsday.' Looping an orchestral outro sped up and slowed down, MF DOOM and MF GRIMM kept pace with tempo bending rhymes on the track 'Tick, Tick.' Sharing a common love for the Marvel Comics Universe, superemcee Ironman aka Pretty Toney aka Ghostface Killah also comandeered a
track off the White Album to drop this mixtape gem, a grimy drug dealing tale with a wailing guitar which was originally laid down not by one of the Fab Four but by an uncredited Eric Clapton. (If you can't get enough of MC's wailing off key to electric guitars, check out Eminem's poor interpolation of the same Beatles song on 'Haile's Song')

While not released offically until after the White Album and not on a Beatles album until Let It Be, the track providing the backdrop for Eligh's 'Makeshift Message' had been in the works during the creative process of the double discs. A poigant original, Eligh reworks it as a challenge to other MC's to step up their lyrical game.

Bonus tracks:
While diggin just yesterday I unearthed a lost Beatles cover by the Fat Boys. Finally to bring it all back into one great big grey circle, from Mellow Submarine a reggae Beatles tribute album John Holt's cover of the White Album's gentle 'I Will.'

Sample Key:
The Roots: Hey Bulldog
Organized Konfusion: Come Together
Poison Clan & RZA: Do You Want to Know a Secret?
Talib Kweli: Eleanor Rigby
Nas & Numark: Imagine
Knoc'Turnal: Old Siam, Sir

MF Doom: Glass Onion
Ghostface: While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Eligh: Across the Universe
Fat Boys: Baby Your a Rich Man
Beastie Boys: When I'm Sixty Four, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, &
Sgt. Peppers Reprise, Back in the USSR, The End

It's been fun, be back soon. Bengo Star
