  • The Tommy Boy Story Vol. 1: Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force - Renega...
    Indie powerhouse Tommy Boy Music was born in Tom Silverman's NYC apartment in 1981 when the entrepreneurial trade mag publisher began releasing the best of the demos crossing his path. He struck gold with the label's revolutionary debut, Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force's Planet Rock. One of the only 12" singles ever to sell 600,000+ copies. Tommy Boy and its stable of stars led the way as the first wave of hip-hop's artistic translation of urban street culture became a mass-appeal phenomenon. With repeated high-charting crossover success, Tommy Boy earned almost 80 gold and platinum citations, and the label's groundbreaking grooves are essential pillars of hip-hop, as evidenced in this new collection of many of their greatest early tracks.

    No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now
    No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now

    Renegades of this atomic age
    This atomic age for renegades
    Renegades of this atomic age
    This atomic age for renegades

    [Verse 1]
    Prehistoric ages and the days of ancient Greece
    On down through the Middle Ages
    When the earth kept going through changes
    There's a business going on, cars continue to change
    Nothing stays the same, there were always renegades
    Like Chief Sitting Bull, Tom Paine
    Like Martin Luther King, Malcom X
    They were renegades of their time and age
    So many renegades

    Hand clap, hand clap, the renegades

    [Verse 2]
    From a different solar system many many galaxies away
    We are the force of another creation
    A new musical revelation
    And we're on this musical message to help the others listen
    Improve momentum and seek the electonic chance
    Like astrology
    Like technology
    Like God's Creation
    Like the Zulu station
    Like to the nation
    Like destroy all nations
    Like militants
    Like down in sand
    Like through changes ,nothing stays the same
    Oh renegades

    [Verse 3]
    Now renegades are people with their own philosophy
    They change the course of history
    Everyday people like you and me
    You know they have their secret notions
    And time is endless motion
    All people of the moderate ages here in this twentieth century
    You have to keep up in time with the moderate time
    A state of mind and a sense of pride
    A renegade, yes a renegade
    Of this time and age
    So many renegades

    Who's that
    Now hand clap
    The renegades

    [Verse 4]
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    Poppin', sockin', rockin' with a side of hip-hop
    Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
    You know we're poppin', sockin', with a side of hip-hop
    Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
    Poppin', sockin', rockin' with a side of hip-hop
    Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'

    [Verse 5]
    We're teachers of the funk
    And not of empty popping
    We're blessed with the Force and the sight of
    With the bass, and the treble
    The horns and our vocals
    You know everytime we pop into the beat we get fresh

    [Verse 6]
    There was a time when our music
    Was something called the Bay Street beat
    People would gather from all around
    To get down on the Bay sound
    You had to be a renegade those days
    To take a man on the dance floor
    Like Afrika Bambattaa and the Soulsonic Force
    We're talking about Mr. B, Pow Wow, G-L-O-B-E
    Was a renegade, yes, a renegade of the atomic age
    So many renegades
    What's that
    It's a hand clap
    The renegade

    Just jam sucker
    Say jam sucker
    Say groove, sucker
    Say groove, sucker
    Say dance, sucker
    Say dance, sucker
    Now move, sucker
    Now move, sucker

    Everybody say
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk
    We're the renegades of funk

    Shake that thing
    That makes me swing
    I got some great
    He's a renegade of funk
    Mr. Biggs
    He's a renegade of funk
    He's a renegade of funk
    Pow Wow
    He's a renegade of funk
    And MC Globe
  • Mestizo and The Heavy Twelves - One Shot Kill (Official Music Video)
    Preorder 'Big Bad Death' by Mestizo and The Heavy Twelves now:

    The esteemed underground rapper Mestizo has teamed up with The Heavy Twelves, a Los Angeles based electro-psych-beat duo formed by Egadz. 'Big Bad Death' is releasing on Fake Four Inc. on August 24th as an ultra rare 12" picture disc vinyl with vinyl-only instrumentals on side B.

    Mestizo shines brightest in the shadows. His webs of words - woven with otherworldly precision - writhe with hardship's wisdom and power in triumph. The nomadic veteran of the underground, though modest, has a bountiful history of influence in art and prolificity in its creation. With his psychic osmosis of the many cultures and experiences in which he had thrived, Mestizo has proven himself an honest and unique interpreter of the world in which we live.

    At the helm of Big Bad Death's production, The Heavy Twelves include a wide array of synthesized sounds and prominent percussion with intricately recorded drum patterns. They obsess over pushing and pulling, and turning and tuning knobs until each and every sound conforms to the aesthetic. The music is full of heavy synth bass, catchy melodies, and interesting noise, but always sounds like a train that could run off the tracks at any second...and in certain ways, it always does.

    I'll keep, holding on
    I'll keep, holding on!

    [Lord Jamar]
    Young black male, twenty-five years of age
    Many-a-lives didn't survive to this stage
    Cause the rage of another brother got him popped
    Shot him and he dropped, like a beanbag
    Mean motherfucker with a rag and some jeans that sag
    They signify your death by crossin out your tag
    Then they go and brag that they took another life
    Never to think, do a brother got a mother and a wife?
    Trife when a nigga do the work of the Klan
    That's what you're doin when you ruin the life of a black man
    Attack plan on self
    The man's got the family jewels, so I guess we're buryin wealth
    All because we've been taught to despise what's black
    Open your eyes you oughta realize the fact
    That you've been gettin used like a trick
    You think you're mighty, but yo, whitey got your head sick
    See you were fed thick pieces of swine as a baby
    It only help to drive your mind crazy
    Now your blind days be over
    No more standin on line, tryin to find Jehovah
    Let us rewind to a time we was right and just
    Nowadays we just fight and bust
    One another in the back over crack, a carjack
    Will get you killed, watch the blood get spilled
    To the scale, then watch how fast they build the jail
    Now they got you holdin on to a cell, well...

    I'll keep, holdin on
    I'll keep, holdin on!!
    I'll keep, holdin on
    I'll keep, holdin on!!

    [Sadat X]
    Why it gotta be me B? I just came to chill
    Came to see the flicks, nuttin more nuttin less
    Try to show love even on a bad day
    I roll up, I'm never hold up, the L is swoll up
    The beef in the mind is definitely a winner
    Oh that's that rappin nigga, I thought he was much bigger
    Do you know this girl named nah B I don't know nothin
    Did that name-game shit right from the go get
    Shorty want an autograph, can I sign it at the end
    Oh I think I'm all of that now, so now it's fuck Brand Nubian
    Should I call you a bitch, or should I maintain?
    I'm just here with my lady, and you came witcha man
    This would force him to front, and I'm sure he don't want it
    Over some old bullshit, when I'm quick to pull shit
    Live dad, everything is everything
    I got a lotta shit to do I can't afford to catch a charge
    I'm a product of the streets, and I couldn't make no peace
    All the real hard shit I know, is on the down low
    Straight for real estate, on a scale I place your fate
    Now I'mma let you skate, you was a little weeded
    And I seen you don't need it
    So hold on with your bad self...

    I'll keep, holdin on
    I'll keep, holdin on!!
    I gotta hold on!
    I'll keep, holdin on
    My word is bond, I gotta be strong

    Dimitri from Paris brings this classic, jazzy house mix. A classic.

    Enjoy the lyrics. Let us know about any corrections in the comments!


    Well here's how it started
    Heard you on the radio
    Talkin' 'bout rap
    Sayin' all that crap about how we sample
    Given examples
    Think we'll let you get away with that?
    You critizie our method of how we make records
    you said it wasn't art, so now we're gonna rip you apart
    Stop, check it out my man
    This is the music of a hip-hop band
    Jazz, well you can call it that
    But this jazz retains a new format
    Point, where you misjudged us
    Speculated, created a fuss
    You've made the same mistake politicians have
    Talkin' all that jazz
    Talk, well I heard talk is cheap
    But like beauty, talk is just skin deep
    And when you lie and you talk a lot
    People tell you to step off a lot
    You see, you misunderstood
    A sample is a tactic
    A portion of my method, a tool
    In fact it's only of importance when I make it a priority
    And what we sample of, is the majority
    But you are a minority, in terms of thought
    Narrow minded and poorly taught
    About hip-hop, playin' all the silly games
    You erase my music, so no one can use it
    Step on us and we'll step on you
    Can't have your cake and eat it too
    Talkin' all that jazz
    Lies, that's when you hide the truth
    It's when you talk more jazz than proof
    And when you lie and address something you don't know
    It's so whack that it's bound to show
    When you lie about me and the band we get angry
    We'll bite our pen, start writin' again
    And the things we write are always true
    Suckers, get a grip, now we talkin' 'bout you
    Seems to me that you have a problem
    So we can see what we can do to solve them
    Think rap is a fad? you must be mad
    'Cause we're so bad we get respect you never had
    Tell the truth, James Brown was old
    'Til Eric and Rakim came out with "I Got Soul"
    Rap brings back old R&B
    And if we would not, people could've forgot
    We wanna make this perfectly clear
    We're talented and strong and have no fear
    Of those who choose to judge but lack pizazz
    Talkin' all that jazz
    Now we're not tryin' to be a boss to you
    We just wanna get across to you
    That if you're talkin' jazz, the situation is a no-win
    You might even get hurt, my friend
    Stetsasonic, the hip-hop band
    Like Sly and the Family Stone, we will stand
    Up for the music we live and play
    And for the song we sing today
    For now, let us set the record straight
    And later on we'll have an informal and a formal debate
    But it's important you remember, though
    What you reap is what you sew
    Talkin' all that jazz
    Talkin' all that jazz
    Talkin' all that jazz

    Rhymesayers Entertainment celebrates the 20th anniversary of The Dynospectrum by finally releasing the full-length album on vinyl, for the first time ever!

    We dug through the basement archives and unearthed the original reel-to-reel recordings. After blowing off the dust, we transferred the audio and sent it back to mixing, making sure that every eerie note and skull-snapping snare sounded crisp before it was fully remastered, truly bringing the darkness to light.

    For those unaware, The Dynospectrum is a long-standing fan favorite in the RSE discography. The short-lived supergroup was comprised of MC's Slug (Atmosphere), Musab, I Self Devine (Micranots) and Mr. Gene Poole, and it was produced entirely by Ant.

    This 20th anniversary edition includes 3xLP vinyl pressed on black & cream side A/B effect records, with an illustrated 8-panel accordion fold-out poster, all housed in a gatefold jacket with original artwork re-touched by the brilliant visual artist Aaron Horkey.

    This special release also includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded during the original studio sessions, plus a free digital download card that also includes the album instrumentals (also made available here for the first time ever!)

    The Dynospectrum 20th anniversary vinyl is available now!

    [Intro: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski (Sample)]
    (Give me some time to blow the men down)
    You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be twisted around and used against you in the court of law. I'll make damn fuckin' sure of it! You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, which you probably can't, one will be provided for you, you stupid, freakin', moulignan bastard!

    [Verse 1: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski]
    It's the bad lieutenant, runnin up in your tenement
    Plantin' evidence on any black resident
    New York's largest crew, it's the Men in Blue
    We stick together like glue and make lies come true
    My name's Officer O'Maley, I shoot you in the alley
    And burn you like a cross at a fuckin' Klan rally
    I got spics sellin' nicks in the L.E.S
    I stay untouchable like my name's Eliot Ness
    New York's finest, with my bulletproof vest
    I confiscate the chronic, I let you keep the stress
    That is unless you wanna try and test
    I'm D.T. undercover, I lock up your mother
    You're just another brother, you ain't a mafia don
    Who the fuck's payroll do you think that I'm on?

    [Hook: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski]
    The Police Department is like a crew
    It does whatever it wants to do
    The Police Department, we're like a crew
    We do whatever we want to do!
    The Police Department, it's like a crew
    It does whatever it wants to do
    The Police Department, it's like a crew
    It does whatever it wants to do!

    [Verse 2: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski]
    You know this ain't Serpico and you ain't Al P
    I got it locked from Hunter's Point in the Square of Albee
    From the Bronx to Queens to Brooklyn to Staten
    We're the most organized criminals in Manhattan
    When we come, we swarm in full uniform
    When the blue lights flash, start runnin' your cash
    It goes back to the days of Al Capone and Frank Nitti
    Illegal business controls the city
    Oh, what a pity, if your attitudes shitty
    Fuck my money up, kid, and you'll be doin' this bid
    If you spill what I did, I'll put a pill in your lid
    Or get you bustin like a cherry waitin' in the comissery

    [Interlude: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski]
    Ahh, what's this? Crack? Is that a gun?
    You stupid moulie fuck!
    You're gonna be doin' some real time, son!

    [Hook: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski]
    The Police Department is like a crew
    It does whatever it wants to do!
    The Police Department, we're like a crew
    We do whatever we want to do!

    [Verse 3: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski]
    I raid stairways in the PJs just for thrills
    And pull triggers on niggers that won't hurt the crills
    It's brought up to paper, punk, that's the caper
    If we make this connection, I'll give you protection
    And this year, the mayor's up for reelection
    So rat out all the competition in your section
    And the next day, there'll be a drug sweep around your way
    So let your crew know, it's time to stay low
    Keep up in the dough and you get the info
    On what's goin down and we can run this town
    Straight into the ground, while we rise to the top
    There ain't no such thing as a dirty cop
    Cause I plant what I want on any crime scene
    I keep my hands clean, you know what I mean?

    [Hook: Everlast/Officer O'Maley Bitchkowski (Sample)]
    The Police Department is like a crew
    It does whatever it wants to do
    The Police Department, we're like a crew
    We do whatever we want to do!
    The Police Department, it's like a crew
    It does whatever it wants to do
    The Police Department, it's like a crew

    It's gonna be alright, you gotta believe dat
    Dear God times are changing and the weather got hot
    Over the past year a lot of soldiers went pop drop
    So I thank you for my life and all that I got
    I wanna praise you and drop off a message to Pac
    I was sittin' here lookin' at your picture I miss ya
    Puttin' h*** with the w*** wit a mixture of liquor
    We can't kick it you ain't wit us is the thing I can't figure
    Homie I miss ya this thug gonna miss ya til I'm wit cha'
    It was 90 on the P.E. tour when we mashed down
    Don't even seem like 7 years passed
    Both rodies now homies out the hood on the scene
    You did the humpty with D.U. I did the walk wit the queen
    Was a dream smokin and drinkin' through our per diem
    Stealin' backstage passes to hit chicks and coliseums
    Found those to flip up make them lift they hips up
    Get it then get up looking to chicks up and switch up
    Think of all the times that I rolled wit mine
    Male groupies got dissed and got the hell out of dodge
    They was blinded when the good shined through they were on you
    Just know I'm gon' mourn you till I join you
    [Chorus] (×2)
    Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
    I hope you here me now in god we trust
    Even all the prayers can't bring you back to us
    I'll mourn you til I join you cause i'll keep in touch
    We was two lil riders both skinny and broke
    Happy if we scrap pennies for smokes
    Tours over we were out yeah and you called with the news
    You was over in New York to film this movie called Juice
    Called you back up you told me pack up
    Me and you and Stretch could shack up
    The thug luv back up the act up
    Shock, Hakeem and ain't true would call and fuss cause they know we all kicked up dust
    You remember when the cabby said daddy wouldn't pick up our RACE
    You beat his a** then you spit in his face
    I remember on the set from the trailer feens stole your jewels
    And Big Stretch punched him out his shoes
    Back then I was taken stashes quick who holdin'
    That's when every piece of b** I was rolling was stolen
    We would laugh at the jacks over six packs and yacks
    Spit the emos over demos thinkin' ladies and limos
    Youse a wild homie brotha who could never sit still
    Said you wouldn't rest until you seen a mill
    Homie I felt you
    We was back an' forth borough to projects for forts
    Damn I wish they knew how much you loved New York
    Shhh and can't nobody dis my brotha
    Never mind that I miss my brotha
    I'm a mourn you til I join you
    You ain't got to worry about how long I'm gonna mourn ya
    I'm gonna keep your name on the streets
    [Chorus] (×2)
    I'm ya true muggin brotha thug nation alert
    Keep his name on the street til ya lay in the dirt
    This here hurt cause we went from poor to rich
    You're supposed to see a lot more than this
    They brought you up locked you up when you did above the rim
    They let you out you called us up we came as thugs again
    We WOULD HEAR ah-ha rapist they shout
    Ya'll was talkin things that ya'll didn't know a damn thang bout
    You was going through your stress while your enemies laughed
    Ain't never take no shit and 2Pac never took no back
    Forget the press forget the world life goes on when you die
    Forget the court forget the judge and every trick that lied
    A little time ticked by, my lady and I got rocked
    My lady waking me up yelling Treach, Pac got shot
    Soon as I get there I find Afeni urging' me
    Saying convince my baby, don't leave after surgery
    So I'm lookin in her eyes while they walkin me through
    Thinkin Pac hard head what the hell I'ma do
    So we kicked it as they stayed and I asked what you need
    You say a pound for comin partner and a hit of some w****
    So I asked you not to go over and over god knows
    You just smiled and said homie help me get on my clothes
    So we got over that, you healed up got locked
    I dropped case about lights, they had you caged when I stopped
    Yeah the chain remains plus you a part of my link
    They messed up by givin' you too much time to think
    I remember your release and we met up in l.a
    At the billiard getting blazed Henny'd out with the hay
    After that you blew up a made playa platinum plus
    Addicted to drama a soldier with a nation of thugs
    Now we in these savage ages
    Even you yourself predicted that last night in vegas
    I heard gats were brandished, my homie once again damaged
    And a part of this heart right here in Venice
    At the same time you was both loved and feared
    M.O.B. the thuggin' thug of the year
    I'm a mourn you til I join you
    [Chorus] (×2)
    We'll mourn - that's what we'll do
    We'll mourn - till we're with you
