This review is from: Mecca & The Soul Brother (Audio CD)
On 106th and Park the other day, proof to me the decline of Western Civ is upon us they had a trivia question:
"On the album from the early 90's titled Mecca and the Soul Brother, this two man duo from NY eulogized a fallen soldier in arms by name, what was this song ?"
Oh gee, lemme think, only one of the all time tighest hip hop tracks EVER laid to tape ? T.R.O.Y.
Yeah, well none of the kids had a clue, only two girls even raised their hand and one of them guessed P. Diddy . . . ? F#$% P. Diddy, he isn't qualified to take out their trash ! The girl host was like "naaaah, come on ya'll, OK, let's run down the old school acts from Mt. Vernon, com'on, money earn'ing from Mt. Vernon, run 'em down . . . " and so the other girl guessed Chuck D ? And this is a local crowd, I mean if they were broadcasting live Des Moines that would be one thing, but these were local kids for chrissakes.
I was standing there screaming at the T.V.
Oh well, at least they played the video afterwards, a nice break from the c/rap that is on constant heavy rotation from the Ylang Ylang twins and Tipsy, talk about a couple of no talent azz MF's.
That was proof to me that 106th and Park is doing the young population a huge diservice by forgetting the past that made this music great. Like: "It's OK kids, there was no music prior to the year 1999, then Price came out and did his thing and that opened it all up for the brothers . . . blah, blah, blah."
Maybe it's for the best, these guys will remain a badge of honor for people in the know, kinda like the ixthus (sp?) for the followers of Jesus, well if ya don't know, ya can't go.
Guys (meaning PR and CL) if you ever look here, there are still those of us who remember, who appreciate what you did.
"t to the r to o y how did you and I meet in front of Big Lou's fighting in the street . . . "
Later Skaters.
