Thursday Throwback

Thursday Throwback Soundset Edition: Atmosphere’s Slug Circa 1989 As Sean1 [Music Video]

When the Soundset Edition of Thursday Throwback came to mind this was the second video that came to mind. Although I know this joint made it’s way around the internet sometime last year there has to be a couple of you who have not seen Slug‘s performance as Sean1 in 1989. I’m not sure if this is a talent show or what but Slug definitely demonstrates his skills and knack for picking quality back-up dancers early on.  This is classic shit here people. Go to fucking, get info and cop tickets and maybe, just maybe, Slug will rock this track at the end of the night with the dancers. Read More »

Thursday Throwback Soundset Edition DJ Premier – Guru & Big L Tribute At Fat Beats NYC [Music Video]

One of the performances I am personally most excited for at this years Soundset Festival is that of the legendary DJ Premier. I am a MidWest dude and have not had many opportunities to see Preem do his thing so this Sunday while DJ Premier rocks his set you know exactly where I will be if you want to find me at Soundset. Peep this footage of DJ Premier paying tribute to Guru and Big L on the last day Fat Beats NYC was open for business. Go to and do whatever you need to do to get there. Read More »

Thursday Throwback Soundset Edition – Raekwon: Criminology (feat. Ghostface Killah) [Music Video]

I really can’t believe this cut is 16 years old. As soon as the idea for the Soundset edition of Thursday Throwback came to mind so did this cut. When that purple tape dropped I remember going to the record store with pops and being the first of all the homies to have it. Mad kids were giving me the blank Maxell’s on that “can you dub that OB4CL for me?” I have yet to see Raekwon and Ghostface Killah perform the joint live, hopefully that all changes on Sunday at Soundset 2012. It is not too late to make it to the Soundset Festival. Get more info now at Read More »

Thursday Throwback Soundset Edition – Lupe Fiasco: Kick Push (Live) [Music Video]

For this week Thursday Throwback will be dedicated to some of the artists we are going to rock with this weekend at the Fifth Annual Soundset Festival in Minnesota. To “kick” things off I found the video of Lupe Fiasco performing “Kick Push” for AOL Sessions. Although if you know me, you know I’m not the biggest Lupe Fiasco fan in the world but this joint wasn’t bad. There still is time to catch Lupe live at Soundset! Cop your tickets now for more info.

Thursday Throwback: Black Thought Freestyling with Questlove

Nowadays, actual “freestyling” (as in rhyming off the dome) is rarely heard or seen, so I am bringing you a classic freestyle from a time when a lot of emcees were really good at rhyming on the spot. Black Thought is a very underrated rapper, but that’s for another post and another day; however, Black Thought proves his skill here in this video where he freestyles over a beatbox performed by the one and only ?uestlove. You can catch this clip from the 2000 documentary “Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme.”Enjoy! Read More »
