Tell Em' Why U Mad

This site is meant to be different. Posts will be geared towards those that like to read and those that want the main idea which is why you will see "Method To The Madness" above each piece. You'll also find music, playlists and other regular things hopefully done in irregular ways.

From V.A. To P.A.




METHOD TO THE MADNESS: Philly + Virginia = Illmaticness

Certain things just go together. New York football teams playing in New Jersey, other things that don't come to my mind, etc. Well, certain cities also go together. Philly and New York dislike each other when it comes to sporting events but Philly and New York came together musically to form the Rocafella dynasty. Detroit and L.A. hated each other before Isaiah Thomas needed saving, and Magic Johnson peculiarly gained weight after he was diagnosed with HIV. Musically however, Detroit and California formed Jaylib, Eminem and Dr.Dre's gazillion dollar partnership and most recently, Black Milk and Bishop Lamont crafted a sonically pleasing Caltroit mixtape.

One partnership that is overlooked however is the one between Philly and Virginia. This combination created Philly's Most Wanted's "Get Down or Lay Down", an album with great Neptunes beats and dull lyrics. But besides that, it created Star Trak. The Neptunes crew brought together Rosco P. Coldchain, a Philly rapper with an odd rhyme pattern and criminal background, Fam-Lay, a Virginian with a flow that leads one to believe that his blood pumps codeine, and the Clipse, a duo who is a favorite of this site and of myself and have also formed a group with Philly personalities called The Re-Up Gang. Nevermind all this lead-in blah blah, these are artists that deserve more (enter anything) than they got. Enjoy the sounds.

This is a goldmine!

I was just considering taking my Re-Up/Star Trak CDs out of my deck and trying out this new ish by some girl named Weezy.

Let's do the math. 5 compilations. 1 year of listening apiece. I'm good til the next Olympics.
