“Reminisce” Fiasco

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23, 2012 by mattyfresh697400

I remember sometime around the late 80s when I was already years into being a hip-hop addict and my father asked me “Matthew, dont you think this hip-hop thing is just going to be here today gone tomorrow?” and I was like no way, this genre is here to stay”…of course I was only 12 years old so I doubt i actually used the word genre.

In any event hip hop has been around a long while now and with the passing of time songs that were new in 1992 are now 20 years old and some of those songs, in fact most of those songs are long forgotten. But every now and again the music gods smile on a super talented producer and a gifted MC and classics are born, classics that will still sound great 50 years later, classics that should NEVER EVER be touched.

So today as I am doing my daily scroll on Rap Radar or Spotify etc, I came across the latest single from Lupe Fiasco titled  “Around My Way”

“When They Reminisce over you my god”

The beat dropped on his new single and within seconds so did my jaw….I swear it dropped all the way to the damn floor, I was appalled.  Is it possible that my ears were deceiving me?…Lupe Fiasco has committed what I consider to be the cruelest form of music blasphemy. He not only sampled ,  but basically straight jacked what might be the greatest beat on perhaps what might be one of the all time GREATEST HIP HOP SONG of all TIME…..He Jacked “T.R.O.Y” also known as “Reminisce”  by the legendary Pete Rock and CL Smooth. This song is such a timeless perfect classic, you simply do not touch this…EVER.

And Lupe being a real student of the game HAS to know better!!!!…..shame on you Lupe!!!

Step your game up son.

Literary Crack Dealer

  • Thats Chris Rock..Smokin Rock!

  • It came to me in a flash, James Patterson is a literary crack dealer.

    I repeat. James Patterson is a literary crack dealer. So how did I start my new year on the reading front in 2011, with a nice healthy serving from the dope man.. “CROSS FIRE” the latest fix from Mr. Patterson was my first read of the new year. And as with any good crack fix, the high came quick , fast and strong and before I knew it..it was gone.

    The latest release!

    So I am gonna roll with that analogy for a while and in so many ways its perfect. The latest James Patterson offering “Cross Fire” was released in December of 2010, just in time for the heavy shopping season and holidays. So say if we were talking about John Grisham for instance, that would have most likely been his lone release for the year, at most his second.

    The Product

    But not my boy JP. No, when Patterson released “Cross Fire” last month, it was his 9th release of the year. NINTH! I do not think I am going out on a limb when I say that most people dont read 9 books in any calendar year of their lives, so how the hell is this dude WRITING 9 books in a year.

    Nino Brown

    But much like Nino Brown in New Jack City, you change the product and in turn you change the market place. When the Cash Money Brothers switched from cocaine to crack and Wesley Snipes took over the Carter, well..lets just say the drug habits of those Harlem Residents changed forever.

    Dope Man

    James Patterson is no different. He writes page turners with small words, huge fonts and story lines that read like nursery rhymes. You would be hard pressed to remember any details of any patterson book not 2 minutes after you have completed it, and lets be honest..you dont remember your last hit of the rock either.

    So with this new product, Patterson fans can get their fix almost monthly with a new release. Patterson has three flagship franchises  with characters ALEX CROSS, LINDSAY BOXER and most recently MICHAEL BENNETT and he even spatters in a few other releases just for good measure..including an annual BEACH SPECIFIC book.

    Crack.

    So at 350 pages per book and 100 words per page, your pretty much in and out of the crack house in two to three hours max, that is easy reading. And that is why James Patterson is by far the most successful author on the planet. We live in a short attention span world now and Patterson is the author that is slinging the most product.

    Alex Cross

    “Cross Fire” the latest Alex Cross novel was fun and of course quick. Detective Cross certainly has an active career catching criminals and seems to have bad luck (in every book) but thankfully manages to live on and fight another day, and thank G-D for that!
