That’s a line from a Fabreeze Brothers song that didn’t make the album (the rhymes will be resurrected elsewhere, trust me on that)… but yeah, when I was a youngster in the earrrrrly days of Hip Hop I drew up some party flyers for Mount Vernon’s legendary Collins Bros. crew. For those who weren’t around or in the NYC area in those days, the Collins Bros. rocked with all the Hip Hop pioneers- see the other names on the flyer- and definitely paved the way for the next generation coming out of the Money Earnin’ / Now Rule area (Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Heavy D & The Boys, Brand Nubian etc.). My dude Mark Collins aka DJ Mark C recently posted a pic of this flyer from 1980 on Facebook and I bugged out! Haven’t seen this in 34 years. So it’s nice to see my own direct link to the original days of Hip Hop- I wasn’t rhyming or deejaying yet, but I was soaking it all in at the jams way back then and putting in work with the pen and ink even as a youngin’ (I love the creativity of writing lyrics, spinning records for mixes, making beats etc. but my natural god given talent is drawing pictures above everything else). This is my history right here- thanks to Mark C. for letting me revisit a time that helped shape who I am today.
Mad pics of the PMC ACRR bundles poppin’ up on Facebook and the DWG site, among other spots… super ill. Mr. Cratedigger, I want that fly v-stitch goose, my brother! For those that missed the bundles but still want to cop, you knew it was gonna happen- eBay is calling your name. I may have to bid on that bad boy my damn self.
Yo… February was slow, we’ll see how it goes for March. Although not much new content was upped last month, I did re-up a lot of the old schitt that was lost when Z-Share effed up in 2008. So if there was anything from months ago that you couldn’t download recently, try again- it might be available now.
Unfortunately, there’s also a lot of stuff that’s still NOT back up. Some because it’s just gonna be a pain in the azz to find the cds the stuff came from and rip ’em again, some because I no longer have the same edits of the clips that I put up previously but some because I might not have the music at all anymore. In ANY format, mp3 or cd or even cassette. Here are some of the joints in question:

If any of y’all good people out there who downloaded these joints from here still have any of them and can send them back to me either here in the comments sections or to my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org I would surely appreciate it. I would like to re-up everything that was lost (although it’s probably a waste of time anyway, since the vast majority of people who wanted this schitt already got it), but believe me, once the links die out again I will never re-up them again. So anyway, hook a brother up if you got that. And peep the flick up top- 5th & Cecil B hood schitt, son. Spring’s coming, I’m takin’ MAD flicks when it gets warm, yo! Peace out.
Yo… tomorrow (or worse case scenario sometime this weekend) I will be dropping my annual HIP HOP LESSONS on your azzes- mad old school park jam tapes, emcees, disk jockeys, so tell all the fly kids and the young ladees. As a prelude to the THAT REAL SCHITT holiday celebration which is to come, I would like to spread a little bit of Philly love. Here are some of the pics of the great pieces of art (legal and not necessarily legal) that adorn the walls of the city of brotherly luv that I like to take with my camera phone when I’m out there in the skreets. You can also download the theme music below the pics to help you get into that Philladelphia state of mind (and no, the two L’s in “Philladelphia” is not a typo- if you know me you know what time it is).
