I had fun, bust your back, yo I speak with thunder
Over at the very spiffy blog So Much Silence, I was graciously asked to take part in their ongoing segment “I Used to Love H.E.R.” where artists from all genres talk about the most essential hip hop recording in their lives.
As much music as I consume and create on a weekly basis, it feels good to hang my hat on my favorite album ever recorded, Ghostface Killah’s 1996 debut Ironman. As much as I try to memorize verses from Heltah Skeltah, Joe Budden, or Royce 5’9”, I’ll never forget “Yo bitch I fucked your friend, yeah you stank hoe, I seen her on the elevator, honey grabbed my Kangol!”
And if you had it on cassette or lent it to your high school girlfriend’s brother and he got robbed for his Nautica fleece with the walkman inside it bumping “Winter Warz,” fear not…you can cop the cd for under $7 at Half.com
Have a mothafuckin’ ultra melodic crunch dusted Alize day, god!
