It’s Tha Liks

The Alkaoliks easily get my vote for the most slept on group in the history of hip hop cause I swear nobody gives these dudes the props they deserve. No matter how many years pass, these dudes will ALWAYS remind  me of the ’93 Greek picnic in Philly cause this …

The Chain and the Star

What can I say about GangStarr that hasn’t already been said? They’re EASILY one of the best groups (and peep I didn’t say “hip hop” groups) EVER (my personal #2) and Primo is EASILY one of, if not the best hip hop producer ever. There’s only a handful of groups/artists that …

Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star

It’s crazy that one of my favorite groups only dropped one album but that says A LOT about that one album and how dope both of the group’s MC’s are. Black Starr which is made up of the mighty Mos Def and Talib Kweli and were looked at as the …

The Brownsville Bombers

I never understood why M.O.P’s name NEVER comes up whenever cats talk about the best hip hop group ever. To me, their discography is just as strong as Tribe’s, Run DMC’s, Outkast’s (my personal pick), EPMD’s AND Public Enemy’s but these dude’s names never even get brought up even if …

The Honest Cowboy

Most folk who come around here know that I’m not feeling 90% of these new wave MC’s. But the one dude who I have messed with from since I first peeped him on Dame Dash’s website DD172 is Stalley. To me dude is a straight up and down blue collar …

Broad & Olney Philly’s Finest

One thing a lot of cats don’t know about me is that I spent every summer from the 4th grade to 8th grade (’84-’88) with my cousins in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn. So I used to always hear how non existent Philly hip hop was. And as I got older it …

Diggedy Das EFX

I NEVER got why some cats think of Das EFX as a one hit wonder. I mean, I get why cats who aren’t hip hop heads say that but I’m talking about dudes who know the game. Yeah, they never got back to the success of their debut album “Dead …

The Great Dot X

I remember when I first got put onto Brand Nubains like it was yesterday. I peeped the video for their single “Wake Up” and was like these cats are DOPE and went out and copped their tape strictly off that jawn. I remember one day me and my dude Rob …

Camp Lo

There’s ONLY one group in the entire history of hip hop that I love but I don’t know what the hell they’re talking about 99% of the time! And that group is Camp Lo. I remember first seeing these cat’s video for “Coolie High” and thinking these cats are dope …
