Media / subliminal messages?
« on: March 20, 2006, 02:49:53 PM »
i heard the new busta rhymes track - dunno what the name is...

the chorus goes something like:

touch it
turn it
stop it
let it go
format it
the beat is really minimalistic, lyrics are nothing to write home about.

i found myself spellbound by the track - unnaturally so.

there's always been talk about " messages in rock music.
anybody know about additional ingredients in hiphop music & artists said to employ this type of thing in their beats?

General Discussion / Hip Hop - From Old Skool to New
« on: November 23, 2005, 11:56:08 AM »
I read this article posted on the AG homepage, and downloaded the slideshow.
I think this lecture/ study was relevant in the sense that HIPHOP music has evolved to a stage where people are questioning it's validity in terms of culture.
To fully understand where on is going one has to know where you have come from.It was nice to have a condensed version of the foundation of hiphop, there arent many protagonists of our culture who would have taken the time to release a document like this.

Many of the trends within south african hiphop become clearer when i read the script.As some one who attended the Homeage ParkJams in CT , I also grasp the importance of such events at atime when hiphop seems to have lost the plot.

That's how it all started , with dj's essentially taking the culture to the ma**es in an informal/outdoor/ghetto setting.
THE BOOTLEG has in its actions essentially reaffirmed the neccesity to renergize hiphop by rekindling the seesnces we may have discarded completely.

Slide 28 mentions issues that i would also like to elaborate on,if the prof wants to engage with another documentarian , i would love to chat with him about them - especially about the role of women in hiphop.
the thread "where r the women at" - started by "neverthem" stated an important issue related to this topic, it's a pity few people bothered to engage his questions properly.

General Discussion / Yo know you have been away when....
« on: October 27, 2005, 08:53:20 AM »
I have been away from HIP HOP for a while but documenting my world has brought me back in...so here are a few questions just to show my ignorance & be schooled.

1.Did OBD really die of AIDS?(not too hard to believe)

2.Does RZA hav a skin disease?

3.Does WC of West Side Connection cut the "three-bokdrolle" on his chin?

4.Is LORD HAVE MERCY still around?

5.Does anybody agree that JAKEE from Paarl's Koekamakranka LP is probably the best Afrikaans meterial this year/

6.Did anyone see the article in the sunday times a few weeks back where MCdONALDS (yes , the burger people) -are looking for a rapper to drop their name in some songs for royalties?

7.Can Black Thought of the the roots rap about anything except that he's a better MC than anyone else yet.(Please post MP3 to answer this question)

8.Am I the only one that thinks Black Eyed Peas song "Dont Lie" sounds exactly the same as their song "Shutup" - lyrics / theme & all?

9.Has Funk Master Flex done anything about his whiny voice yet?

10.Is ADIDAS really contributing to HipHop?( Im a fan by the way - but they are still just a business.)

Look forward to the answers on this one!

(Phew) see Mic - I stopped hesitating & did it.(Sam & Claire r well)

I'm an amateur photographer (in the respect that I'm not doing it as a dayjob.) I 'm looking for opportunities to document hiphop on as many levels as possible....AND FINALLY GET PAID.Samples of my work can be seen @ www.flickr.com/photos/scott_williams

I shot the hiphop connected funkshin from start 2 finish.you should see some soon right here.(depending on whether blunt mag decided to use some of my images or not.)...i will explain another time.

I used to want to be an MC , i put down 2 tracks with MIC STONE in a crew called "three deep", but when i became a father i became disillusioned with the moralities & so on....

I'm klaa gepraat now.
