I don’t have alot of guests on the show so when I do you know its some real shit. This week we welcome the world-renowned C-Rayz Walz to The Ready Cee Show. C Rayz is one of the hardest working human beings on this planet, not just in the rap game. With already an astounding amount of material under his belt, he has recently shelled out two brand new projects within a month of one another; FREE RAYZ WALZ & WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU? Tre Dog, Killa Kal & Klu Shiesty are in the building along with DJ Mixx the One Arm Bandit.

Mixtapes come a dime a dozen in today’s world of MP3s and computerized DJing. Thousands of DJs were born out of nowhere with the emergence of new technology and spawned a rash of low brow releases that have flooded the streets from coast to coast.

JUSTO’S REVOLUTION PT. 2 represents what makes a mixtape stand out above the crowd. It represents a true collaborative effort between some of Hiphop’s legends and it’s emerging forces. Artists like Pete Rock, DJ Premier and Black Sheep have come together with DJ Ready Cee & DJ Mixx to honor a man who meant so much to the world of mixtape DJing, Justo Faison. We called on some of our most powerful allies in the world of Hiphop to contribute to this project and everyone we needed stepped up in a big way to make this happen.

JUSTO’S REVOLUTION PT. 2 reaches far beyond the expectations of a normal mixtape and brings heavyweights back to the roots of the game!

Stars & Stripes

Hip Hop Meets The White Stripes

 

http://starsandstripesproject.com/

About The Project:

I was late jumping on The White Stripes bandwagon. But, when I heard “Doorbell” a few years back I became an instant fan. That raw, classic sound was so fresh to me. I went straight to iTunes and downloaded the whole album. It wasn’t long before I owned everything they’d ever released.

What really got me was that I wanted to sample almost every song. But, I couldn’t just shamelessly sample their whole catalog. Plus, I had just decided to move away from sampling and focus on writing original music. So, a remix project seemed like the thing to do, and the idea was born.

I started digging through my collection and fitting all the pieces together. My goal was to use only samples from The White Stripes and a cappellas from classic songs and my favorite emcees. And of course, I had to rap on one of the tracks myself, with my man Brian Jacobs on the hook.

So there it is, hip-hop fans, meet The White Stripes.
Fans of The White Stripes, meet hip-hop.

— Adrian Champion

 

About The Artist:

 

Adrian Champion grew up in the Flint area of Michigan, where a blue-collar upbringing shaped his perspective on life and later, his music. By the age of 13, he was hooked on hip hop, unwittingly learning to write rhymes by transcribing the lyrics of groups like Public Enemy. But it wasn’t until moving to California shortly after high school that he would find an outlet for his own creativity. It was there that he’d meet other aspiring artists and record for the first time. Although this early work was rough, it was clear he had something. That something evolved from just rapping and making beats, to writing and producing, composing, playing guitar, and even singing. Refusing to become complacent or stay in a particular box, Adrian is constantly adding to his repertoire and exploring new creative directions, from his own self-produced solo project to his writing and production for artist Brian Jacobs and others.

The Great8Mixtape

When people talk about legendary crews in Hiphop, in my opinion, THE BOOT CAMP CLIK should be one of the first mentioned. Buckshot, Smif-N-Wessun, Heltah Skeltah & OGC are each individually legendary in their own right and when they form like Voltron into The Boot Camp Clik it becomes a Hiphop spectacle that few crews can match. I dropped The Great8Mixtape featuring & hosted by the entire Boot Camp Clik when they were on the cusp of releasing The Last Stand album in the Summer of ’06. Enjoy!

TRACKLIST

  1. BCC – HEADS AIN’T READY
  2. OGC – NO FEAR
  3. SMIF-N-WESSUN – BUCKTOWN
  4. SEAN PRICE & AGALLAH DON BISHOP – RISING TO THE TOP
  5. BLACK MOON & STARANG WONDAH – WHY WE ACT THIS WAY
  6. BCC – GO FOR YOURS
  7. BLACK MOON – HOW MANY MCs
  8. HELTAH SKELTAH w/ LORD DIGGA & SMIFF-N-WESSUN – DUCK DOWN
  9. BLACK MOON – ONE, TWO
  10. BCC – FREESTYLE PT. 1
  11. OGC – GUNN CLAPP
  12. HELTAH SKELTAH & OGC – LAFLEUR LAFLAH ESHKOSKA

Paranorm getting bent at the Fast and Furious World Premiere

I wanted to bust out an exclusive The Ready Cee Show / Parakhan Spit Hate story about going to the Fast and Furious World Premiere, but the trip was so uneventful that I’m not sure what to say. Red carpet…blah blah…Vin Diesel…blah blah…crazy car scenes…blah blah blah…party…get drunk…blah blah…dip. That’s it. Article done.

What I would really like to talk about in this post is general premiere etiquette and what to expect when you hit the event. Most of you out there have never been to a premiere as most of you don’t live near Hollywood or NYC, so what I would like to do is tell you what to expect and how to run it when you get to go to one. I’m definitely no expert on this topic, but I’ve been ripped at like 30 premieres so if you want to know what it’s like from my perspective…read on.

First of all, you’re most likely going to have to pick up your tickets at will call. This is pretty universal whether you end up at Mann’s, Westwood, or wherever. Always remember to look like you should be up in that shit just in case something goes wrong with your tickets. I’ve been lucky enough to always have people looking out for me, but ticket problems could ruin your entire night. Be cool and things will most likely work themselves out from what I can tell.

When you hit the red carpet, stare at the photographers like they should be taking your picture. A few will snap off on you just in case you’re someone they should be getting…but most won’t do anything which makes for a good game of staring them down. Son those fools. Pap’s are like bloodsucking leeches who get paid to sell pics so when they won’t even waste one digital flick on you…it’s kinda like a diss. Ok, not really….you (and I ) just aren’t stars.

Premiere’s almost always have free popcorn, water, and soft drinks. Grab what you want and don’t be in a rush to get to your seat as they will never start the movie until all the talent has left the red carpet and are comfortably resting in their seat. With regards to seats, there are only so many in the theatre (unless they are running the film simultaneously in overload theatres), so there is a rare chance that you can end up sitting next to one of the stars or other stars attending the event. Most of the time, the organizers have strategically designed the seating chart, but you never know. I’ve sat next to Wanda Sykes (like a midget), a seat away from Cedric The Entertainer, Steven Tyler, and within a row of Will Ferrell. Depending on who it is…I suppose you could get a thrill from housing the armrest from a star or sparking up a conversation. Just remember, it can always backfire on you because the stars trump your ass and can have you ejected pretty quick.

Watch the flick. If the movie really sucks…keep it to yourself as you’re sitting in a theatre of people who worked really hard to put it together. That’s pretty much a no brainer. You’re there on the studio’s dime and no matter how bad the movie is, you’re going to get hammered shortly, so keep it together. 

The movie ends and it’s time for the party to get started. yes. Not everyone gets to go to these parties so make sure you don’t lose your passes. There is nothing worse than being forced to go your own way after the movie when you know people are about to kick it at an open bar party with food. Make your way to the party and keep it moving.

The party is generally themed after key parts of the movie…meaning there are usually props or related themes going on. For example, at Anchorman we took pics at the news desk, at Talladega Nights they had tire changing stations and nacho cheese fountains, at the Simpsons they had some setup where you could get a mold of your hand holding a pink donut, at Barbershop 2 they had Oran Juice Jones…ok, he’s not a theme, but fuck…we ran into him and it blew Joey Ocean and I away. Oran Juice Jones was my shit. Anyway, you get the idea. The entire setup is themed after the movie. The only premiere that I recall not having anything was Two For The Money…but Al Pacino was there so they probably figured that was good enough.

Be sure to head for the food, eat whatever looks good, then head straight for the open bar. Depending on the type of movie, the crowd will either stay for a few drinks and split or the night could turn into an all around rager. I remember staggering out of Be Cool, blacking out after The Family Guy, and stumbling out of Semi-Pro, but maintaining ok by the time I left Team America World Police and Mr and Mrs Smith.  It can go either way and it’s all up to you.    

That’s about it. Have good time, get blitzed, and make it home alive so you can do it all over again.

octomom

Which one of you Disorderlies is gonna bust Octomom?

So I’m sitting here listening to Diamond D….”Sally Got a One Track Mind” to be specific. The news is on in the background and the reporters are hounding Octomom. Boom! Octomom Got a One Track Mind!!!! It’s very fitting as she really does have a one track mind when it comes to spitting out kids, right? The common questions being asked in the media are: Is she going to depend on the state to help take care all those damn kids? Is she going to do that video for Vivid? Is she going to get smoked by the religious knuckleheads sending her death threats? Where did she get the money to cop that house? Is she mentally stable? These are all valid questions…but they’re also irrelevant to a certain segment of the population. Check.

The real questions that need to be asked…which East LA dude is gonna be the next to hit? Like, Octomom is a broke man’s Angelina Jolie for sure…and if you think fourteen kids can scare off a dude on a creep mission…pft..yeah right. My uncle John has twenty something kids…you think he was scared off by fourteen kids? So, which one of you slimey ass, Johnny Whore ass, Who’s the Mack ass rappers is gonna creep on Octomom? I’m guessing it’s going to be some down on his luck ass home care worker who is over there changing diapers when the he sees Octo swoop down the stairs in a donated gown. You know the deal. It’s gonna be a Kool Rock-ski looking dude who ends up bustin Octo (no disrespect to Kool Rock-ski as he is one of my fave rappers of all time…he is just an example of a Disorderlie).   And while I’m on the subject of orderlies, and Disorderlies,…my boy Kevin hasn’t worked at the hospital or in health care for at least 10 years….AND HE IS STILL WEARING SCRUBS. WTF. Are they that comfortable? How you just going to be running around town rocking scrubs like you work at the hospital and you don’t’ even have a job most of the time? How you going to wear Scrubs up to regional clothing distribution plant where you work at? Crazy.

Peace to Diamond D for real….A true sample master:
