I try to look out for my city from time to time.  This post is for a cat from SBI who has been doing his roots, rock, rap, reggae thing for a long time.  What do you think?

I’m not going to say which one, but I lived across the hall from one of The Dictators for like five years.  He was pretty much a dick, but an almost likable character.  I mean, he never liked me and I never liked him…and I knew he was weird as fuck, but we got along like neighbors should and we would nod and say hello here and there.  He even helped me pick up my plasma tv and move it onto a table once when I  had a broken arm.

Anyway, I just saw something and it reminded me of him…so now the internet can reap the rewards of my lame flashbacks.  Wherever he is, I hope he’s not flipping out with those episodes that had the ambulances blowing up the spot.  I hope he’s doing just fine.

Btw, he’s kinda rockin out in that video.

I’ll leave you with this Richard Hell quote from a cartoon:

Dope and tripped out packaging…very reminiscent Jimi Hendrix’s, non nude, Electric Ladyland cover, eh?  Don’t believe me, take a look for yourself (below).  Old school style biting.

Regardless of the blatant bite, which still happens all the time and is actually something I enjoy when its done well or in tribute, the songs on the album speak for themselves.  I wish Ghostface was here inside of this post to pop out and say “Niggas bit off Nas Shit!!!!”..

Btw, Tina is the original Beyonce….She would’ve gotten the business so bad and still looks amazing to this day (for her age).

Ike & Tina Turner – Let Me Touch Your Mind

Stevie Wonder is one of my favorite artists of all time.  I’ve seen Stevie at least 6 or 7 times and he just keeps getting better and better.  He will definitely be a reoccurring theme in my posts. I’ve got some Stevie stories…but I’ll save them for future posts.  For now, I’ll just appreciate this beautiful ad.

Btw, Tammi was looking good in that little bubble.  It’s interesting to note the Motown slogan at the bottom, “The Sound of Young America”. They sure were.
