    Though I'm old(er) my son has gotten me on the intelligent rapping of ~Earl Sweatshirt~, he's a beast.

    Agreed. Check out his contributions as a member of L.A.-based Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (Odd Future or OFWGKT for short). The OF Tape, Vol. 2 released in 2012 is a good place to start.

    If only hip-hop "heads" could've seen into the future and glean what would follow this undisputed classic. Excellent pick.

    Boogie Down Productions - By Any Means Necessary

    upload_2017-3-5_19-1-1.png
    Some of us old timers can scream that East Coast/West Coast/King of NY shit 'til Kindgom Come, but this man, in my humble opinion, is the all-time, all-around best MC in hip-hop. Period. He and Rakim single-handedly shifted lyricism away from partying/story telling to complex/dense rhyme schemes and intellectual discourse. Tupac spun West Coast tales of Thug Life () and Biggie repped Brooklyn. Nas tells the world about Queensbridge and Jay-Z promotes self-direction and entrepreneurialism. KRS-One and his self-proclaimed "edutainment" speaks to the intellect and consciousness of listeners and sought to define hip-hop as a way of life as well as a sociopolitical platform to adress the needs of and establish a public presence for the "unseen" in modern-day society. No emcee that I'm aware of has covered the breadth of topics regarding day-to-day life in his/her discography than this individual, which is why he's still going strong 30 years after the release of 1987's Criminal Minded with Bronx, N.Y.-based Boogie Down Productions.

    Used to see Ozomatli (w Chali2na) weekly@the dragonfly in l.a. 20 years ago. In listening to the recordings, my fave parts of the show were before, during break, and after the show with just cut chemist. Wish I would have recorded more of those parts. Good times (same bar red hot chili peppers got started at).

    There's nothing like a live turntabalism performance. There's something about that mixture of seemingly surreal hand-eye coordination involved in catching breaks and juggling beats via a crossfader that's simply mezmerizing. I have a few tracks by Cut Chemist via the Return of the DJ series and simply can't imagine what you heard/saw during those performances in L.A.
