Artist/Song/Album



 

The first time this particular track appeared on my iPod, it briefly raised an eyebrow. I thought to myself " this probably doesn't happen often." Well, it didn't in my digital music collection -- until now that is.



 

 I'm curious if any of you readers are familiar with other tracks like this? If so please list 'em.

 That's all.

 Thanks.

Put This On: Season 2 - Episode 1: The Melting Pot



Put This On, a web series about dressing like a grownup, visits New York City, a place where style is defined and redefined through interpretation and reinterpretation.

Meet the 'Lo Heads. With roots in 1980s street gangs, these Polo Ralph Lauren enthusiasts have made "aspirational apparel" a lifestyle. They once had to boost their Polo from stores and fight to keep it on the streets. Today, their culture is worldwide, promulgated by hip-hop. Their hero is Ralph Lauren - a working class New Yorker who understood that the fantastical power of style can be transformative. Dallas Penn from The Internets Celebrities, a dedicated Lo Head (and former member of the Decepts crew) with a collection of over 1000 pieces of Polo apparel takes us on a tour of this remarkable fashion subculture.

Visit Worth & Worth hat shop, a New York institution with roots going back to 1922. In recent memory, Orlando Palacios has made the shop a home for rockers as well as traditionalists, turning hundred-year-old machines to the task of reinterpreting hundred-year-old styles.

Meet Jason Marshall, a jazz saxaphonist with a classic style. He plays with bands ranging from traditional bop to hip-hop fusion to Aretha Franklin, but he prefers to wear tailored clothes when he does it, and explains why.

And in our Q & Answer segment, find out how to pack your suit for travel. We'll show you a fold to keep it neat inside a rolling carry-on or suitcase, and we'll show you how to keep your trousers on the hanger inside a garment bag.

Snupe (Extra Prolific) on Red Clay

Peace...



We recorded this in high school..."Low End Theory" was barely out.........before u know it we are on the same label w Q-tip..by this time we had no desire to put it out because it was too old.....later Tips song comes out...i wonder did he hear the demo? - Snupe


Extra Prolific - Let It Ride featuring Tajai (Produced by A-Plus)


Tribe diehards: "SUCKA NIGGA IS WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY BETTA!!!!!."

Errr...yeah. But that's not why I posted this. Just thought it was an interesting comment from Mr. Lee. I think they sampled different versions of the song, but it would be funny if Q-Tip heard the demo while handling business at Jive/Zomba, and then proceeded to pull a fast one.
