Classic review : The Chronic in The Source (1993)

December 8, 2008

I’ve been doing this blog for two years now, and I just realize that I haven’t posted the Chronic review from The Source yet. The review was written by Matty c, but for some reason was signed by The Mind Squad, the collective name used by the staff writers. Published in february 1993.

Freestyling With The Fellowship : Freestyle Fellowship in Rap Sheet (1993)

June 12, 2008

Long story on the Freestyle Fellowship, Mad Kap, Pharcyde and the Good Life from Rap Sheet, july 1993. Sorry for the bad quality, but you know how cheap Rap Sheet paper was. Audio is quite recent, it’s Pharcyde’s leader Fatlip with Heavyweight MC (and unseen force behind this blog) T-Love from the Jazz Liberatorz album. T-Love new album is coming out in september, but we’ll talk about that later…

A Gangsta’s World View : Ice Cube in The Source (1990)

October 4, 2007

Ice Cube was on the cover of the 1990 summer issue of The Source, no interview inside but a strange analysis supporting Ice Cube’s chauvinistic stance.

To fully understand the last paragraph (“Why do my posse and I have fun shouting along with Ice Cube ? He caters to our fantasies in a world where we feel so powerless.”), you have to realize that the writer Dan Charnas is a white american male who, at that time, was a&r at Tommy Boy Profile..

Audio is Ice Cube, Sir Jinx and K-Dee first single.
