Hip-Hop Fights Back just got a nifty shout out from Danny Brown. I’ll post that tomorrow.
I listen to NPR everyday. They’re low-key really keen on good music.
NPR - How The Wu-Tang Clan Forever Changed Hip-Hop
“This year marks the 20th anniversary of a remarkable year in music. Over the 12 months of 1993, Queen Latifah, De La Soul, Salt-N-Pepa, Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest and more than a dozen other rappers released albums that helped to change the sound of America. One of those albums wasn’t just a collection of songs…it was a business concept too. The Wu-Tang Clan’s 1993 debut was the opening shot of an audacious plan to open the music industry to hip-hop made way outside the mainstream.”
If you haven’t yet noticed, I’m a huge fan of NPR, and you should check out all the other interesting stories I’ve come across.
“If you keep eating McDonald’s, you gonna get sick. You need a real home-cooked meal. And I knew that that would be healthier. And that’s what Wu-Tang was: It was a home-cooked meal of hip-hop. Of the real people.”

“I’m tall, dark, skinny, my ears are big as fuck.
Drunk white girls the only way I’ll get my dick sucked.”
“Record companies are not necessarily interested in you realizing your artistic dreams and full potential. The bottom line is that they got to sell records, regardless of the artistic quality.”

Army Of The Pharaohs - Gun Ballad
When it comes to hardcore “don’t fuck with us” hip-hop, Army Of The Pharaohs reins supreme. This supergroup was formed by Vinnie Paz back in 1998, and for those of you who’ve never heard of Vinnie Paz before…he’s the rawest motherfucker in the history of hip-hop. He has many bare knuckle classics under his belt, such as Roll Of Life & Cheesesteaks. If you don’t know any of the other rappers featured on this song, I highly recommend you look them up if you enjoy this kind of hip-hop. I also recommend you bump this song with the volume cranked up…it inherently increases its intensity.

Dave Chappelle: For What It’s Worth
He’s hands down my favorite standup comedian of all time. This standup special is a timeless classic.

If you haven’t watched this yet…I STRONGLY suggest you do so.
