I'm Mad Mean, I Kill Mad Crews, I Read Mad Magazine
We should be up and running. Enjoy the Masta Ace and Black Sheep and we should have an update today.
I went to see Handsome Boy Modeling School on Wednesday night. I scored a couple of free tickets, which have become increasingly rare since my college years. After attending the show, I read Cocaine Blunts' review and was amazed how much my thoughts mirrored those of Noz. Mr. Dead was hilarious. Josh Haden looked uncomfortable. And I was embarrassed that the crowd seemed to have no clue as to the identity of Dres. Dres!
To apologize collectively on behalf of all White People, this post is dedicated to Black Sheep emcee, whose flow was truly ahead of its time. If A Wolf came out now, it would sound just as fresh as it did in 1991.
'Similak Child' seemed to have a different feel than the rest of A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing. Almost serene despite the dog barking, Dres used the fantastic backdrop to describe the pursuit of the full-package type of lady. Part of the beauty of this track is that much like other classic Native Tongue's tracks (Find A Way, Let Let Me In,) the pursuit was not quite as misogynistic as 50 Cent yet not as emo as Atmosphere. It tended to reflect the middle ground featured in the lives that most of us live. Also, Dres reference to a Long Island Ice Tea as L.I.I.T. is a useful timesaver for alcoholics.
Naturally, the sample utilized by 'Similak Child' was too good to only be unearthed one time. LA Jay remixed the Masta Ace Incorporated hit 'Saturday Night Live' with a similak-like beat.
