Media / On the last episode of Tha Headwarmaz...12 September 2008
« on: September 15, 2008, 01:13:40 PM »
The last episode of the Headwarmaz was as hard-hitting as ever. In the memory of our Steve Biko, the struggles of the Zimbabwean community...and our own political circus, we decided to start by remembering what the true struggles are about...

Itsho Into - Driemanskap

76 - Tumi and the Volume

We were then taken on another musical journey by Mr T (T-money!!!). We reviewed the album Below the Heavens from the emcee-producer duo Blu & Exile. The tracks were all killer! The lyrics were on point and delivered with finesse... the beats a throw-back to the head-bobbing era. We were all in agreement that this album should find a place in your collection...

The narrow path - Blu & Exile

Blue collar worker - Blue & Exile

Cold hearted - Blu & Exile

For the love of the art of words, Black Anakin a well-travelled poet paid us a visit. With social commentary like you never heard before. Poem titles like, Free state means that not only does he have a sharp eye for spotting the troubles on the water but also has the presence of mind to deliver his views in  a clever and hard hitting way. Black Anakin will be performing around Cape Town over the next month... catch him at

Zula Sound Bar  Verses night...every last wednesday of the month

Speak your mind poetry festival...finale on the 20th September

Poetry delight... Wednesday nights at Cafe Sofia

For more info email... headwarmaz@gmail.com

Then when we were supposed to be winding down, we steady kept burning those ears, warming those heads...

Life Story - S.I.M

Intro - Redrama

Hay' suka - Reason, X-ray, Driemanskap

No big ting - Skinnyman

Resurrection at last - D.S.O

Half man, half amazing - Pete rock ft. Method man..


You know how we do...

Here we go again...this week we feature some of hip hop's best and worst lyrics... as well as some cool graff spotted on our street....



                                                                  Lyra**ist Lounge

Artist: Common Sense
Album: Resurrection
Song: I Used to Love H.E.R.

Verse One:

I met this girl, when I was ten years old
And what I loved most she had so much soul
She was old school, when I was just a shorty
Never knew throughout my life she would be there for me
ont he regular, not a church girl she was secular
Not about the money, no studs was mic checkin her
But I respected her, she hit me in the heart
A few New York niggaz, had did her in the park
But she was there for me, and I was there for her
Pull out a chair for her, turn on the air for her
and just cool out, cool out and listen to her
Sittin on a bone, wishin that I could do her
Eventually if it was meant to be, then it would be
because we related, physically and mentally
And she was fun then, I'd be geeked when she'd come around
Slim was fresh yo, when she was underground
Original, pure untampered and down sister
Boy I tell ya, I miss her

Verse Two:

Now periodically I would see
ol girl at the clubs, and at the house parties
She didn't have a body but she started gettin thick quick
DId a couple of videos and became afrocentric
Out goes the weave, in goes the braids beads medallions
She was on that tip about, stoppin the violence
About my people she was teachin me
By not preachin to me but speakin to me
in a method that was leisurely, so easily I approached
She dug my rap, that's how we got close
But then she broke to the West coast, and that was cool
Cause around the same time, I went away to school
And I'm a man of expandin, so why should I stand in her way
She probably get her money in L.A.
And she did stud, she got big pub but what was foul
She said that the pro-black, was goin out of style
She said, afrocentricity, was of the past
So she got into R&B hip-house ba** and jazz
Now black music is black music and it's all good
I wasn't salty, she was with the boys in the hood
Cause that was good for her, she was becomin well rounded
I thought it was dope how she was on that freestyle shit
Just havin fun, not worried about anyone
And you could tell, by how her titties hung

Verse Three:

I might've failed to mention that this chick was creative
But once the man got you well he altered her native
Told her if she got an image and a gimmick
that she could make money, and she did it like a dummy
Now I see her in commercials, she's universal
She used to only swing it with the inner-city circle
Now she be in the burbs lickin rock and dressin hip
And on some dumb shit, when she comes to the city
Talkin about poppin glocks servin rocks and hittin switches
Now she's a gangsta rollin with gangsta bitches
Always smokin blunts and gettin drunk
Tellin me sad stories, now she only f***s with the funk
Stressin how hardcore and real she is
She was really the realest, before she got into showbiz
I did her, not just to say that I did it
But I'm committed, but so many niggaz hit it
That she's just not the same lettin all these groupies do her
I see niggaz slammin her, and takin her to the sewer
But I'ma take her back hopin that the shit stop
Cause who I'm talkin bout y'all is hip-hop

Lyra**ist Lounge
[/b]


Artist: Fugees a/k/a Refugee Camp
Album: The Score
Song: How Many Mics

Intro: Wyclef Jean

Pick up your microphones
Pick up your microphones

Chorus: Wyclef/Pras

How many mics do we rip on the daily
Say, me say many money say me say many many many
How many mics do we rip on the daily
Many money say me say many many many

Verse One: Lauryn Hill

I get mad frustrated when I rhyme
Thinkin of all them kids that try to do this for all the wrong reasons
Season change mad things rearrange
But it all stays the same like the love doctor strange
I'm tame like the rapper get red like a snapper, when they do that
Got your whole block saying true dat
If only they knew that, it was you who was irregular
Soldier soul for some secular muzac that's whack
Plus you use that, loop, over and over
Claiming that you got a new style, your atempts are futile, oooh child
Your puerile, brain waves are sterile
You can't create you just wait to take, my take
Laced with malice, hands get callous, from ripping microphones
From here to Dallas go ask Alice if you don't believe me
I get innovisions like Stevie
See me, a sin from the chalice, like the weed be
Indeed we like Kalid Mohammed MC's make me vomit
I get controversial, freaky style with no rehearsal
Au contraire mon frere, don't you even go there
Me without a mike is like a beat without a snare
I dare to tear into your ego, we go, way back
Like some ganja and palequo or ColecoVision
My minds make incisions in your anatomy
And I back this with Deuteronomy or Leviticus
God made this word, you can't get with this
Sweet like licorice, dangerous like syphillis, yeah

Chorus

Verse Two: Wyclef Jean

I used to be underrated, now I take iron, makes my shit constipated
I'm more concentrated, so on my day off with David Sanonburg I play golf
Run through Crown Heights screaming out "Mazeltoff!"
Problem with noman before black I'm first hu-man
Appetite to write, like Frederick Dougla** with a slave hand
Street pressure, word to papa I ain't going under
One day I have a label and make deals with Tommy Mottola
Mama always told me, "Your one in a million,
Always watch our back, never tango with haitian-sicilians"
Now I got a record deal, how does it feel?
I'm never gonna survive unless I get crazy like Seal
Cause the whole worlds' out a order
So at night the feins dance on grease with John Travolta
One got slaughtered as he caught blood from his mouth
The other tried to duck and caught a left with my Guinness stout
Brother, brother can't you get this through your head
It's a setup by the feds, their scoping us with their infrareds

Chorus

Verse Three: Prazwell

Too many MC's not enough mikes, exit your show like I exit the turnpike
Dice and dynomite like Dolomite, double do's been like I don't Dick Van Dyke
Starlight to starbrite the freaks come out at night
Like my man Wyclef-"I wear my sungla**es at night"
And my ponage with martial encourage
Squash the squad and hide their bodies under my garage
And when the cops come lookin, I be bookin to Brooklyn
Beat the trails broken flipping tokens to Hoboken
A clean Getaway like Alec Baldwin
Driving in my fast car playing Tracy Chapman

Chorus

Many, many money many many many
Many, many money, ha, ha, ha

Media / On tha last episode of Tha Headwarmaz
« on: August 18, 2008, 09:37:02 PM »
Last friday Tha Headwarmaz stepped into a chilly, air-conditioned studio and left it blazingly hot with all the energy  that was eminating from the Headz.

One of the Headz on da spot were Samantha, who captured hearts with her verse "Crying over spilt milk." And again emphasising some of the reasons why we need to take Women's Month seriously.

The Anonomystix...and Sinister Dexter (The Realist), put a dark cloud around the room when they unleashed verses that can only be described as Phantom-like with the dark beats that we threw at them. No doubt you will be hearing from these cats again... so don't sleep, otherwise you might meet them in your nigthmares...

Thanks to everyone that wished Phurah a happy birthday on the 17th August. Our son is getting older, and let's hope wiser. Phurah cooked up all the local tunes that you heard on the show including...

Reason, Driemankskap, Rattex, Uzwi Kantu, Solitude, Nthabi, Anonamystix, Equilibrium, ...

And we closed it all of with the first volume of What legends are made of. This will be a monthly feature that takes hip hop back to the 90s, and brings back the memories of the songs that help shape hip hop as we know it. If you didn't catch it...this is what you missed...

                                             What Legends are made of
 
                                                               Volume 1
 
Queen Latifah - U.N.I.T.Y.

ll cool j - -mama said knock you out

KRS ONE- A friend

Paper paper – Bone thugs n harmony

Gimme some more – Busta Rhymes

                                                            Lyra**ist Lounge




Artist: Jay-Z f/ Chris Martin (Coldplay)
Album: Kingdom Come
Song: Beach Chair

G-yeah, yeah

[Verse One]
Life is but a dream to me
I don't wanna wake up
Thirty odd years without having my cake up
So I'm about my paper
24/7, 365,366 in a leap year
I don't know why we here
Since we gotta be here
Life is but a beach chair
Went from having shabby clothes
Crossing over Abbey Roads
Hear my angels singing to me
Are you happy HOV?
I just hope im hearing right
Karma's got me feearing life
Colleek are you praying for me
I got demons in my past
So i got daughters on the way
If the prophecy's correct
Then the child should have to pay
For the sins of a father
So i barter my tommorows
Against my yesterdays
In hopes that she'll be OK
And when im no longere here
To shade her face from the flare
I'll give her my share of Carol's Daughter
and a shiny new beach chair

[Chorus: Chris Martin]
I hear my angels sing...
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up, wake up (I hear my angels sing)
Life is but a dream and you really don't wanna leave (I hear my angels sing)
Life is just a dream and you really don't wanna wake up, wake up (I hear my angels sing)
Life is but a dream and you really don't wanna leave

[Verse Two]
Life is but a dream to me
Gun shots sing to these
Other guys but lullabys
Don't mean a ting to me
I'm not afraid of dyng
I'm afraid of not trying
Everyday hit every wave
Like im Hawaiian
I don't surf the net
No i never been on myspace
Too busy letting my voice vibrate
Carving out my space
In this world of fly girls
Cutthroats & diamond cut ropes I twirls
Benzs round corners
Where the sun don't shine
I let the wheels give a glimpse
Of hope of one's grind
Some said HOV, how you get so fly
I said from not being afraid to fall out the sky
My physical's shell
So when i say farewell
My soul will find an even
Higher plane to dwell
So fly you shall
So have no fear, just know that
Life is but a beach chair

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
Life is but a dream can't mimic my life
I'm the thinnest cut slice
Intercut, the winner's cup
With winters rough enough
TO interrupt life
That's why I'm both
The saint & the sinner
Nice
This is Jay everyday
No compromise
No compa** comes with this life
Just eyes
So to map it out
You must look inside
Sure books can guide you
But your heart defines you
Chica
You corason is what brought us home
In great shape like Heidi Klum
Maricon, I am on
Permanent Vaca
Life is but a beach chair
This song is like a Hallmark card
Until you read each here
So till she's here
And she declaired
The aire
I will be prepared
A blueprint for you to print
A map so you can back
A guide for your eyes
And so you won't lose scent
I'll make a stink for you to think
I ink these verses full of prose
So you won't get connect out of 2 cent
My last will and testament I leave my heir
My share of Roc-AFella Records and a shiny new beach chair

[Chorus] - 2X

I hear my angels sing {*3X*}

                                         Isaac Hayes Cause Of Death A Stroke

This Sunday, music legend Isaac Hayes was found dead in his home in Memphis.

Authorities now say the cause was a ma**ive stroke.

Paperwork filed by Hayes' family physician, Dr. David Kraus, lists the cause of death as a stroke. This has not been confirmed by autopsy, for which the family’s permission will required.

Family members of Hayes said the he was under a doctor's care for medical issues but did not give specifics as to what he was being treated for.

Isaac Hayes has been a legendary voice in the Soul/R&B genre since the days he performed with his band…the Barcays.

It was not just his music though, until recently Isaac Hayes was the voice behind the Chef, a character in the comedy series, South Park.

He is also responsible for the bald head-rugged thick beard look that we’ve seen being on the likes of Rick Ross, and on our very own Yizo Yizo by utata ka Javas, Bab’uShembe.



                                        VH1 Announces Hip Hop Honorees

VH1 has announced the honorees for their fifth annual VH1 Hip Hop Honors. This year, VH1 will take the time to show appreciation to rappers Cypress Hill, De La Soul, Slick Rick, Naughty By Nature and Too $hort.

For those unfamiliar with these popular pioneers, Cypress Hill is an L.A. based group who brought a welcomed Latino perspective to Hip Hop, as well as rock/rap hybrids that crossed musical barriers and unified the rock and rap worlds. One of their first hits, Insane in the Brain will be in the minds of all that grew up in the early 90’s.

De La Soul is a Long Island trio known for their often playful style. Their innovative sound has shaped the entire underground movement within the Hip Hop culture.

Naughty By Nature put New Jersey Hip Hop on the map by creating hit singles that quickly became anthems for a generation. Their smash hits "OPP" and "Hip Hop Hooray" are two of the most popular records in rap history.

Also, Oakland native Too $hort made a lasting name for himself with his gritty, raw, often sexual lyrics and hard core style.

On September 16th VH1.com will launch its dedicated VH1 Hip Hop Honors Web site with honoree profiles, exclusive online programming, show information and more at HipHop.VH1.com.
The fifth annual VH1 Hip Hop Honors premieres on VH1 and VH1 Soul on Tuesday, October 7 at 10PM.

Headwarmaz a new season

The new season of the Headwarmaz kicked off on Friday 08/08/08 as if we had never been gone.

 Phurah, Qhama , Wanda and the rest of the Headwarmaz family gathered once again to bump some ma**ive tunes, the SMSs were limitless and of course he had an ill guest come thru spitting some hot ish that burned its way straight through the studio mic ending up causing some permanent damage to you ear...

Kanyi...

This is enough of a description for this talented sistah. With her unique, poetic delivery over some dope beats she raises  the bar of Spaza (Xhosa vernac) even higher.

Highlight was her performing a track... "mshini wam" telling a story illustrating the anger, pain and humiliation that many women have to endure at the hands of cowards who insist on using force...beating and raping women to try and hang on to their ideas of how powerful they are.

The track tells us that that time is done! Kanyi tells us that the only way to stop these fools is to take away the very tool they use to inflict pain. Rip away that machine of yours!!!! Umshini wakho uzotonculwa mtshana!!

Kanyi also spoke to some of the sistah's using their bodies to get what they want in this world. Sometimes you'll get something more than you bargained for. AIDS will be your gift from the world...and you get to keep it till you die...

The rest of the night was filled with vintage Headwarmaz craziness...and the exclamation mark was Mastah Cash...(Cash Money)...on the decks!

You can't afford to miss another episode of the headwarmaz. Tune into Bush Radio 89.5 fm...or log on to www.bushradio.co.za every friday night at 22h00.

Hip Hop Events / Re: Battle of Gugs Vol. 2 launch event
« on: March 06, 2008, 10:44:36 PM »
Wa**up peops

Headwarmaz Wanda and Phura were there on Sunday, and besides a few technical and logistical problems the show was killer.

The fact that 'house-heads' were feeling the performances (not entirely sure about the role of alcohol in this hehehehehe) means that the show was dope.

I can understand what Universal is saying about not having a bigger representation of what Gugs is about by featuring more emcees on the compi....in fact in general cape town gigs and events we find the same faces. But i think the factor here is how much work you put in...

Digging deep peoples work really hard. From marketing, to the on-stage presentation they hold it down. A  lot of work is put into this...

And we need to face it...a lot of kasi cats don't work hard enough to get themselves out there So it's not fair to sit on the sideline and chirp peoples who are doing the work...that shit aint gonna fly.

I encourage everyone who is not yet on the radar to work extra hard to get themselves on the map. And also the peoples already there HAVE to respect up-and-coming acts and guide them in the proper direction.

Other than that...the show was tight. Keep it up cats...

« on: March 06, 2008, 10:15:28 PM »
Ayo I think Immortal deserves more respect than that. Within the 2 volumes of revolutionary and everything in between Tech holds it down proper.

No fancy rhyme scheme...allows each line delivered to be meaningful.

He's one of the few cats who spits out facts in a way that makes you want to listen and also mixes it with the dopest imagery...unlike some other political minded peops (Lost Children of Babylon...sound like they reciting from a Politics textbook)

I think if you give yourself time to listen, you can never consider Tech lame...

We need more of that conscious shit in any case...Ignorance is growing too fast like an uncontrollable malignant tumour. Let's cut it out...

Obnoxious nyikhaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
