"This was a demonstration of the versatility of Resident Alien. We wanted to make a song that embodied spontaneity and a classic feel. Extra vocals were provided by Derrick Lovelace, who was just a guy "hanging around' the studio. He said he sang, so we put him to the test and he has been around from that point on."- Prince Paul

Prince Paul Appreciation Week: Day 3- Flattery and I Want You (I'm an 80's man)

This post was a tough one. I wanted to keep the rule one track per post, but I love both of these tracks so much, I couldn't. Both are so musically sound and funny, I had to break my own rule. Please buy Itstrumental, you can find it for super cheap on Amazon and it's well worth your money.

Prince Paul Appreciation Week: Day 1- Beautifully Absurd

I'm working on a writing project about Prince Paul and I've accumulated mountains of interesting interviews, stories, and quotes. As a result of said research, I've been inspired to devote the next seven days of my life to sharing some great Paul tunes with you. The idea here is very simple. I'll post a song, a quote that is related to the album the song is taken from, a link showing where you can buy the full album, and a photo of Paul. Hopefully you'll enjoy his music and insight as much as I do.

Download "Beautifully Absurd"- featuring W. Ellington Felton with K'Alyn on Guitar.

"Just remember the future of hip-hop is in your hands, watch what you support and don't support. Record sales are like votes, it all counts. Your purchases have the power to change the course of the music being made and sold. Either take action or stop complaining about what you hear on the radio and TV."- Prince Paul

DJ Neil Armstrong: Live At The Do Over

These days my email inbox consists of online banking updates, useless Facebook invites, and junk mail I don't give a crap about. Today I was pleasantly surprised to find an email blast from my boy DJ Neil Armstrong that contained a free live recording of Neil killing it at the LA Do Over party. You can download it for $0.00 by clicking here.

Manilla Ice Say That You're Gonna Be Scratchin' Horns

I was talking to my boy Marcus last night about music and found out that he recently put out a battle record with Manilla Ice. I hadn't heard the name Manilla Ice in a minute, but you used to hear about dude regularly when I posted on DJ Geometrix's message board back in the day. Remembering that he was nice on the cut, I decided to see if he had some stuff on YouTube. Low and behold, he does. Here is one of my favorite routines of his. Nothing super technical or overly complicated, but very musical and funky. This routine takes me back to pre YouTube college days of eating pizza in my friends dorm room, seeing routines like this, and trying like hell to get on the same level as the people I was watching. Good to see that you're still doing it Manilla!
