Classic Review : People’s Instinctive Travels & The Path Of Rhythm in The Source (1990)

September 4, 2007

Rather than buy Shawn Taylor’s uninspiring book about Q-Tip’s first album, I’ll just stick to Matty C’s review from The Source. Back in may 1990 the magazine didn’t use the five mics ratings, but they re-reviewed the album in the following issue, summer 1990, this time with the classic rating.

Evolve : Pharoahe Monch editorial in The Source (1995)

July 21, 2007

Editorial written by rappers’ rapper Pharoahe Monch for The Source in may 1995. As far as I know he never used the lyrics that mysteriously appeared in his rhyme book, if they did, I’d really like to hear the song. And you should know how much I love this Simply II Positive demo, so that’s where the MP3 of the day comes from.
