Yesterday, while digging in my local record store's crates, I found a 3 LP box set I didn't have called Muppet Masquerade...


Well, it was supposed to be 3 LPs & 7 masks, but since it's a used kid record it had only 1 mask and 2 beat up and colored on LPs which had me looking like this guy...




Before walking away from the deal I noticed it had something else stacked underneath the sleeves in the box.  A whole heap of autographed OG Sesame Street promotional photos!  These were not intended to be included in this box set!  In other words, some groupie kid went to Sesame Street Live! and had a backstage pass and got these press-photos "autographed".  Sure, a record was missing, masks were missing, but the vinyl completionist collecting bug was temporarily quelled regardless since the press photos were included for mere 6 bucks.  This is essentially a "Best Of" collection, and most of the songs I have on other records, so this was a no-brainer addition to my Sesame Street Record collection.

70s hair in full effect for the original cast.
  
God I miss Mr Hooper!   He was the greatest cast member ever.
   
David rockin' the chops with a very young Maria.

Gordon and his sweetheart Olivia.  Were they married?


Back in the days when Snuffy was Big Bird's Imaginary Friend.  I used to yell at the TV "He's right there!"







Ahh, the good old days...  When kids TV was not nearly as A.D.D as Sponge Bob.

Tory Lanez - "Freaky" Out Now! [More]

Erick Sermon sometimes gets more credit for his production than his rhymes. However, for more than 30 years, the double-threat has penned some lyrics that are forever tattooed on the Hip-Hop consciousness. That has been true with EPMD, Def Squad, and alone. The MC who once proclaimed “I wish music would adopt me” has more than proven his dedication.

Now, only two months removed from a freestyle single that saw him pair with DJ Gumba on “CHILL” (embedded below) the Long Island, NY spitter is at it again. Appropriately, “Give It To Em,” a signature Erick Sermon-produced track, bleeds the funk and flair we’ve grown accustomed.

Erick Sermon & Big K.R.I.T. Join Forces To Celebrate Southern Women (Audio)

After warming up his vocals and shouting out his return to form alongside Gumba for the second time in as many months, the legendary talent takes time to address emcees who have lost their way. “Ya time’s up/ you were hot a couple of summers / Yes, the kids used to look up to you / What happened? (that’s not the way to do it) ya singin’ now, you ain’t rappin’,” spits the Green-Eyed Bandit.



Immediately after that, he admits to being a workaholic – a trait that has seen him continue to push the envelope in various musical environments (Fresh, Priority, Dreamworks, Universal, etc.), and collaborations, including his most renowned days with EPMD. More than 30 years removed from his first musical endeavor, work ethic is something The Green-Eyed Bandit’s still respects:

“I love my job, yes, I go to work all the time / I puts in hours with the rhyme / So when I relay it, no need to okay it / They play it when I say it / Any place they’ll pay it / The Rick Rubin of the new school… but who cares, new cars are driven / They ask for more, and more is what I give em.

Having been away from the game since his 2015 release, E.S.P. (Erick Sermon’s Perception), E Double provides a fitting reminder of his consistency as he cruises through the second and final verse:

I stepped away from the game / I wanted back the fame / I wanted back the name / Holla back, I’m the same with a stack / I’m the same in person when I rap / The same muthaf*cka in the trap / I got money, but no need to waste it / I did buy my girl a new bracelet / But not from Jacob, somebody else laced it.

“Give It To Em” and “CHILL” are fitting appetizers to the main course that will be his eighth solo album, Vernia, an ode to his grandmother who died two years ago. The record, which he began recording around the same time period, boasts features among the likes of Styles P, AZ, Shaquille O’Neal, David Banner Too Short, Devin The Dude and more. Last month, E-Double released the Big K.R.I.T.-assisted “That Girl.”

If Gumba and Erick Sermon’s working rapport feels just right, expect more. The Long Island-bred DJ is set to combine the aforementioned tracks with other Def Squad efforts to produce an official mixtape featuring the entire crew.

In 2017, Nas and Travis Scott worked together alongside DJ Khaled for video single “It’s Secured” (embedded below). On paper, these artists may seem to represent different corners of Rap music, even while both have close collaborative ties to Kanye West.

Nas burst on the scene in the early 1990s. His debut album, Illmatic, appeased many purists, from The Source magazine to the readers of Ambrosia For Heads (who crowned it the Greatest Rap Album Of All-Time back in 2016). Nas’ most beloved music fits in the canon of East Coast boom-bap. The 45-year-old MC paints vivid pictures with words. Although he tends to shun the spotlight at times, his art often presents introspective lyrics deal with a bygone era of New York City, street crime, and overcoming a grim existence to becoming a mogul.

Nas Sounds Truly Inspired On A Beautiful New Song With Amy Winehouse

Meanwhile, Travis Scott is from Houston, Texas. His music often defies genre. This 26-year-old sings, raps, and sometimes breaks into an all-out Rock Star display in his elaborate stage shows. Scott has a child as well as an ongoing relationship with Kylie Jenner, making him part of the globe’s most prominent celebrity family. Last year’s Astroworld topped the charts with a concoction of music that blends Rap, R&B, Psychedelic Rock, EDM, Screw music, and more. AFH selected it among last year’s best.

However, Nas and Travis Scott have plenty in common, as a conversation moderated by Playboy‘ Marcus Reeves shows. These two artists sit together in the back of a Bentley with L’s burning. Their discussion is about Hip-Hop, and how it continues to evolve and move with the same principles and purpose.

Cormega Breaks Down His Evocative New EP & Why The Fans Matter The Most

Scott praises Nas’ era. “I’m guessing Hip-Hop used to be about bars and just a unique flow over beats. It was like straight soul, and man, you’re telling your story; it was just bar to bar, killing it, and not really about anything being catchy. It was just really raw,” he says. “The past generation knocked down so many doors where, you know, they were spitting a lot of pain, man. They was dealing with a lot of police stuff. We’re still dealing with that now, but it wasn’t so free. Now we got more of a voice at the label. We can kind of put out our own music whenever. You and I could do a song during this interview and upload it right now if we wanted to.”

Nas reacts, “That’s right. Being an MC or a rapper, you got to change with the times. I can stay me, sure, but the challenge is to stay with what’s going on. If you look at the great ones from back then, a lot of them have four albums; they had short careers. That’s changed now.” He also comments, “You said it was once about writing down the pain and all of that. Nowadays the pain has changed. We’re after different things. We broke past the barriers. We understand what we need to do and we’re in control of what we’re doing, and no one can stop it now. No one can tell us what to do, what we can’t do. Rap music can’t be stopped now.”

Nas Demands A Second Look At His Album With A Stunning Short Film (Video)

Mentioning Scott’s action figure, Nas tells Travis he wishes he could execute things like that during the ’90s. He also explains how he admires the artist’s attitude towards the spotlight. “You [have been] doing something I wish I did when I was in my twenties, which was not giving the camera much. If you go back to one of the interviews I did on Video Music Box, I don’t look at the camera that much. Through the years, I would do award shows or whatever, and then I would skip the red carpet. The record label would be mad at me, that I’m up here and I’m selling all these units, and I won’t even walk the carpet. When you cover your face, so you don’t look down, I think, Damn, I wish…I live vicariously through you when you do that, bro, because I feel you on that. You [are] here to do the music and leave your stain on this world. Whether you be in front of them cameras or not, you don’t even care.” Scott agrees, despite his defacto celebrity status. “I don’t care. That’s my whole sh*t, bro. It’s about the music. I just express what a kid my age is going through in a time.”

Scott goes on to describe his expressive nature. Whereas Nas has made songs like “Sly Fox” and “What Goes Around,” Scott admits that he is careful to be about activism in his bars. “I wouldn’t say I don’t feel compelled to speak on political issues; sometimes you just don’t want to speak too much on stuff you don’t know much about. It’s not like I’m not thinking about what’s going on in the world. I’m an expressive artist, but with media and sh*t, it gets misconstrued. As I’m sitting with you right now, I’m still figuring this out, you know?”

Nas responds, “Politics definitely affects the way I think, but the way I write is my day-to-day life. I did a song talking about daughters, because I have a daughter. ‘Daughters’ was nominated for a Grammy. I feel it—that’s why I wrote it—but I had no idea it would be acknowledged like that when it came out. So I write about day-to-day stuff, and I don’t plan to write anything political, because then it’s forced. It ain’t a natural expression.” Moments later, he adds, “Ray Charles and Billie Holiday and all of those great acts were entertaining and going through worse times than now. They were inspiring us. When Michael Jackson did Thriller, that was during Reaganomics. He gave us something to look at other than the politics, the propaganda, the lies. He gave us inspiration.” He praises efforts like Astroworld in a challenging political climate. “The politicians want our full attention. They’re hustling. I’m not getting caught up in that. I make music about life, and life comes before politics.”

The conversation closes with the two men talking about the sport of Rap. “This sh*t is a blood sport,” says Nas. “This sh*t ain’t easy. This is one of the hardest games ever. I love it right now because it’s testing you. What are you made of? Can you survive? What do you have to offer in 2019?” The MC who famously called sleep “the cousin of death” has not shifted his stance. “Because the moment you sleep, the moment you blink your eyes too long, your spot is taken. And that’s the excitement of it.”

Travis reacts, “There’s no barrier. There’s just so much of a flow of things that we’re trying to—we’re gettin’ it out, and we’re expressing it in a different way: what’s happening during our time in life, what’s happening in the streets.”

#BonusBeat: DJ Khaled, Nas, and Travis Scott’s “It’s Secured”:

Feeling nostalgic today. Had the opportunity to relax and listen to old Tamil movie songs of the 60 and 70s. Songs that I would listen to on my transistor while finishing my record work while Vividh Bharati, Radio Ceylon and listeners' choice from AIR, Tiruchy played my favourite songs. These were songs we would be treated to for an hour after dinner before the Silence Hour in our hostel. How much we would nag the seniors in charge of selecting records to play our favourite numbers!

How I wish that I had never grown up and continued to lead that carefree life for ever.

How I wish I never had to learn the bitter truth and harsh realities that are part of life.

We think it’s safe to say, you’ve never experienced an orgasm so strong, it triggered a stroke…but in case you missed it, one 44-year-old British woman’s sex life is so LIT, she was hospitalized due to a “transient loss of consciousness” while receiving oral sex. Yep, you read that right—the unidentified woman (not pictured above) completely lost consciousness.

HuffPost reports:

“After the woman was unconscious for two to three minutes after the sex, her partner got nervous and took her to the emergency room at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. Once there, the man told doctors his partner’s body had gone stiff during their session. The woman told doctors she had a headache that she described as a 6 out of 10 on the pain scale, according to The Sun.

Apparently, doctors were under the impression the woman suffered a seizure, but upon closer inspection they figured out she actually had an aneurysm, which led to a very specific kind of stroke that was, in her case, triggered by an orgasm.

“At first, doctors believed, based on the symptoms, that the woman had suffered a seizure. Doctors later learned she had experienced a blackout caused by a sudden lack of blood supply to the brain, also known a reflex-mediated syncope, according to IFLScience.com.On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness,’ the authors wrote in their report for the BMJ. A CT scan and a CT angiography showed she had an aneurysm, leading to a subarachnoid hemorrhage ― a kind of stroke” HuffPost states.

Apparently, orgasm-induced strokes are not at all unheard of…

“Activities that involve sudden increases in blood pressure and sexual activity is well described as a precipitant,” researchers wrote in the case report, according to the article. “Studies with intra-arterial monitoring during coitus demonstrate that during sexual activity blood pressure, as well as heart rate, is very labile, with particular rises during orgasm.”

According to the site, doctors performed an endovascular coiling procedure on the woman, which “uses a catheter to transmit a tiny coil to seal off the aneurysm from blood flow.” Fifteen days later she was released and OK to…climax freely, as HuffPost assures the world,”four months later, doctors say, she’s suffered no further problems.”

Thank goodness she lived to tell the tale and we’re wishing her many, many memorable—and hopefully, medically SAFE—orgasms in the near future.

Today, Toronto multi-talent Mustafa The Poet released a powerful and heartfelt short film dedicated to various artists, and people they’ve lost. It asks artists how they want to be remembered, and what keeps them going (stream it below).

If you’ve ever lost someone to street violence, regardless of what city you’re from, the stories and experiences shared within Remember Me, Toronto will speak to you. It’s about ensuring legacies live on.

Pilla B in Remember Me, Toronto

“‘Remember Me, Toronto’ is a project created for artists in this video & everyone in our communities. Gun violence and homicide rates in Toronto have been on a steady increase for the past decade. To realize that the greater issue is not between us, there is a larger beast and systemic structure working against us. The city’s ‘priority neighbourhoods’ are tucked away. They tuck away our truth and our humanity. We wanted to give these artists the opportunity to rewrite their memories and the memories of those they lost. We hope to spark larger conversations, that address these issues at their core.”

“With over 406 shooting incidents & 97 homicides, 2018 was a new high for gun-violence in Toronto.”

The production features some of the biggest artists coming out of Toronto including Drake, Baka Not Nice, Gilla, Pilla B, TJin, Pressa, Loco City, Smiley, Top5, Blockboi Twitch, Jay Whiss, Puffy L’z, Rax, Booggz, Yung Lava, and Mustafa himself.

Truly an impressive collection of talent, and a solid representation of what Toronto has to offer across different regions of the city.

Loco City in Remember Me, Toronto

As one YouTube user commented: “The fact that Mustafa could get so many people from different hoods to all be in the same video is crazy, give him some respect for being able to hold the peace and do that.”

Noah “40” Shebib is credited with creating the film’s score, Drex Jancar and Nickey Rei are credited as producers, and Mustafa is credited as Executive Producer along with film producer and Canadian hip-hop mainstay, Sol Guy.

“I want to be remembered as someone who was sincere. Even if I made mistakes, they were made in sincerity. If I was wrong, I was wrong in sincerity.” – Malcolm X

Mustafa was good friends with Jahvante “Smoke Dawg” Smart who was gunned down in Toronto on June 30, 2018 at just 21-years-old. Smoke Dawg’s heartfelt words can be heard in the introduction.

Pressa in Remember Me, Toronto

Overall, Remember Me, Toronto should be a must-see for any Canadian hip-hop fan-the film as well as the message it brings. It brings much needed hope for unity within the Toronto scene, and the confidence that some of the biggest players in the game are leading the charge.

Mustafa and his team deserve recognition from the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television for this.

“We asked them how they want to be remembered…”

You can check out Remember Me, Toronto below, and stay tuned for follow up videos including Remember Me, Mama, which will capture “mothers speaking on how they want their murdered sons to be remembered.”

Yesterday, while digging in my local record store's crates, I found a 3 LP box set I didn't have called Muppet Masquerade...


Well, it was supposed to be 3 LPs & 7 masks, but since it's a used kid record it had only 1 mask and 2 beat up and colored on LPs which had me looking like this guy...




Before walking away from the deal I noticed it had something else stacked underneath the sleeves in the box.  A whole heap of autographed OG Sesame Street promotional photos!  These were not intended to be included in this box set!  In other words, some groupie kid went to Sesame Street Live! and had a backstage pass and got these press-photos "autographed".  Sure, a record was missing, masks were missing, but the vinyl completionist collecting bug was temporarily quelled regardless since the press photos were included for mere 6 bucks.  This is essentially a "Best Of" collection, and most of the songs I have on other records, so this was a no-brainer addition to my Sesame Street Record collection.

God I miss Mr Hooper!   He was the greatest cast member ever.

Gordon and his sweetheart Olivia.  Were they married?


Back in the days when Snuffy was Big Bird's Imaginary Friend.  I used to yell at the TV "He's right there!"







Ahh, the good old days...  When kids TV was not nearly as A.D.D as Sponge Bob.


Today, Toronto multi-talent Mustafa The Poet released a powerful and heartfelt short film dedicated to various artists, and people they’ve lost. It asks artists how they want to be remembered, and what keeps them going (stream it below).

If you’ve ever lost someone to street violence, regardless of what city you’re from, the stories and experiences shared within Remember Me, Toronto will speak to you. It’s about ensuring legacies live on.

Pilla B in Remember Me, Toronto

“‘Remember Me, Toronto’ is a project created for artists in this video & everyone in our communities. Gun violence and homicide rates in Toronto have been on a steady increase for the past decade. To realize that the greater issue is not between us, there is a larger beast and systemic structure working against us. The city’s ‘priority neighbourhoods’ are tucked away. They tuck away our truth and our humanity. We wanted to give these artists the opportunity to rewrite their memories and the memories of those they lost. We hope to spark larger conversations, that address these issues at their core.”

“With over 406 shooting incidents & 97 homicides, 2018 was a new high for gun-violence in Toronto.”

The production features some of the biggest artists coming out of Toronto including Drake, Baka Not Nice, Gilla, Pilla B, TJin, Pressa, Loco City, Smiley, Top5, Blockboi Twitch, Jay Whiss, Puffy L’z, Rax, Booggz, Yung Lava, and Mustafa himself.

Truly an impressive collection of talent, and a solid representation of what Toronto has to offer across different regions of the city.

As one YouTube user commented: “The fact that Mustafa could get so many people from different hoods to all be in the same video is crazy, give him some respect for being able to hold the peace and do that.”

Noah “40” Shebib is credited with creating the film’s score, Drex Jancar and Nickey Rei are credited as producers, and Mustafa is credited as Executive Producer along with film producer and Canadian hip-hop mainstay, Sol Guy.

“I want to be remembered as someone who was sincere. Even if I made mistakes, they were made in sincerity. If I was wrong, I was wrong in sincerity.” – Malcolm X

Mustafa was good friends with Jahvante “Smoke Dawg” Smart who was gunned down in Toronto on June 30, 2018 at just 21-years-old. Smoke Dawg’s heartfelt words can be heard in the introduction.

Pressa in Remember Me, Toronto

Overall, Remember Me, Toronto should be a must-see for any Canadian hip-hop fan-the film as well as the message it brings. It brings much needed hope for unity within the Toronto scene, and the confidence that some of the biggest players in the game are leading the charge.

Mustafa and his team deserve recognition from the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television for this.

“We asked them how they want to be remembered…”

You can check out Remember Me, Toronto below, and stay tuned for follow up videos including Remember Me, Mama, which will capture “mothers speaking on how they want their murdered sons to be remembered.”

“They call me The Ruby Kid; I don’t make protest rap.”

It’s already been two years since Sheffield-hatched, London-based emcee The Ruby Kid released his superlative Maps EP, a CD which garnered a long list of laudatory reviews by writers and bloggers such as myself. Since then, he’s decided to put rap on the back burner, and instead devote much of his energy to pushing the ever-burgeoning London spoken-word scene forward. His new release, Strange, Lively, & Commonplace, proves however, that he hasn’t abandoned hip-hop altogether just yet.

Like Maps, his new release pivots on the border of hip-hop and spoken-word poetry, and successfully draws together elements of both art-forms in defining a style quite distinct from that of any other UK artist out there. In many ways, the four-track EP represents a continuation of Maps, especially in how it forges sensibilities that emerge from the artist’s own daily political, social and introspective experiences within the spatial framework of the capital. For Ruby, the music serves as a canvas onto which he brushes his ideas, the meaning of which we as listeners are left to infer.

Though his lyricism is especially dense and poetic, he is sure not to privilege his words over his music, and DJ/producer Dan Angell’s input on the EP in this regard is crucial. Angell’s well-crafted arrangements wring out the tension of Ruby’s edgy, disembodied poetics superbly and provide subtle harmonic sequences for genuine narrative arcs to develop throughout each track. Spare and frugal, bar a few horn flourishes and kooky indie film samples, the EP is a very slick and sophisticated soundscape in which the percussion, key and bass layers interlock seamlessly.

For the most part, The Ruby Kid’s lyrical praxis remains much the same in this EP as it was in Maps. Rejecting mawkish over-sentimentality, he broods over topics and expounds his observations through a nuanced lexicon, shot through with hard and powerful flashes of realism. Much like indie rap forebear Aesop Rock, The Ruby Kid aims to challenge the listener to educe meaning from his music rather than merely spoon-feeding them, and much beholden to his hip-hop idol, he even quotes several memorable lines out of Labor Days.

Despite its brevity, Strange, Lively, & Commonplace certainly doesn’t disappoint. There are a few minor flaws; the choruses for example, lack vitality and Ruby’s cadence could also arguably do with more variation, but the EP’s combination of dense poetic lyricism over cleverly-wrought, low-key instrumentals is still sure to provide a compelling listen to any attentive musical ear.

Kodak Black is bringing all the heat to himself following his creepy courting of Young M.A.

While Kodak is confessing his lust towards the New York rapper in songs and a recent video, many people are calling sexual harassment against him, especially for a guy who already has sexual abuse accusations aimed at him.

The whole Kodak Black-Young M.A talk started in February when Black commented under a picture of M.A and Nicki Minaj saying, “Both Of Y’all a Get It.”

Black then kept pushing his sentiments in his music. On his latest single “Pimpin Ain’t Eazy” he raps, “I go Young M.A on these dumb b*****s/Like a dyke man, you ni**as can’t f**k with me.,” and then follows with “I’m f**kin’ Young M.A, long as she got a c**chie.”

In another part of the song, he also raps, “I swapped out the spice for the bud/F**kin’ on a dyke, I’m in love. I’m f**kin’ on a dyke, she the one.”

Black’s fans hyped up his vomit-inducing “bars” even more by spamming M.A with talk about the song. M.A clearly had enough of the harassment when she went on Instagram Live on Sunday to talk about how annoying Black’s followers have become.

“And y’all keep talking about this Kodak situation. Y’all n****s is weird, bro,” M.A said. “And it be n****s on that sh*t. What’s wrong with y’all? Is y’all n****s alright? Come on, bro. Like obviously the n***a’s weird…”

M.A went on to say that she and Kodak had a show in the same city, and she’ll talk to him in person if she gets the chance.

In another Instagram Live video, M.A, who is openly gay, clarified that a lot of her frustrations were aimed at Kodak’s followers:

“They always take sh*t out of proportion. They always try to take sh*t and make it something that it ain’t,” M.A explained. “In the live video… I’m literally talking about the people in the comments… and I’m like ‘Why y’all still on that? Get off that situation. Y’all d*ckeating.’ I know I’m a female stupid… but at the end of the day, that’s not my preference… that’s why I said y’all weird.”

M.A’s comments unfortunately didn’t stop Black from hurling more inappropriate comments about the situation in an Instagram Live video of his own.

“I do more good than I do bad and more people love me than hate me,” Kodak said before slipping in another comment about Young M.A. “I’m talking ’bout, how you a girl but don’t want your p***y penetrated?”

Twitter gladly explained to Kodak how having a vagina doesn’t necessarily get you excited about the peen.

Folks especially laid out how they wouldn’t let Kodak anywhere near their privates when he’s already awaiting trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl.
