"ooh you know you rock my world
you be boy and I'll be girl
it don't stop until the break of dawn.."

- E. Badu, "Love of My Life"

Now, this may not mean a whole helluva lot to those who don't flow from my era....

But all the true headz will be feelin' me!!!

While (forcibly) cleaning out my garage this weekend, I found my Public Enemy "Fight the Power" on wax (33 ya'll!) circa 1989, on Motown Records!

And, also my EPMD "Business As Usual"
on Columbia Records, 1990.

In addition to my other 33's - Boogie Down Productions, Brand Nubian, Kid n Play, Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, 2 Live Crew, Run DMC, Beastie Boys, and other "classics" which were just pure, beautiful hip-hop music back in the day.

"Today was a good day"

You can't beat it.

The Golden Age of Hip, Hop/Rap, whatever moniker you want to use. I am grateful to have been the generation exposed to it. It was kind of like witnessing Michael Jordan do his Airtastic escapades, or remembering when the space shuttle exploded. You had to be there.

It's one thing to listen after the fact (as old school aficionados would like to do), but I am fortunate to have lived in the generation that knew, that what we were listening to, was something special indeed.

So, hey, gurl, why don't you let ME do you a favor, and take those off of your hands. Girl, I'm NOT tripping, I can keep them at MY house, since you don't have enough space to keep them (that IS what you said, yes?)


Miss Ahmad said...

Supa said...

Mwabi - I've TiVo-ed all the Hip Hop Honor shows. The bomb, aren't they!!! Oooh, I scare/embarass my kids when anything old skool/hip-hop related comes on!!

I even bust out into my B-Girl stance throw some breakdance moves on 'em. They just roll their eyes....

Girl, you got what I need! That's a hell of a "pick me up" collection! Sounds like it's time for a par-tay!

BTW, love the new look!

Shawn said...

Monie Love, Miss Melody and BDP. Man! I miss those days.

Supa said...

Thanks, Cocoa Girl!!! Okay! There's an old school partay going down at the Supa Pad, everyone's invited! Free cocktails for those who can bust their favorite lyric upon admission! :)

When I'm alone in my room
sometimes I stare at the wall
and in the back of my mind
I hear my conscious call
telling me I need a girl whose
as sweet as a dove
for the forst time in my life
I say I need love....

My sister my sister tell me what the trouble is....

Supa said...

We fight every night
now that's not kosher
I reminisce with bliss
of when we was closer
and wake up to be greeted
by an argument again
You act like you're ten
So immature
I try to concentrate on a cure
and keep lookin' at the front door
Thinkin' if I were to evacuate
You'd probably be
straighter than straight
And wouldn't have so much hate

Main Source, baby! Whaa what!

Damn, I feel like such a youngin. But I miss when rap was just all love..Now most of what's broadcasted is big business propaganda & rose gold grills..yuck!

P said...

I know y'all think I'm trying to be funny, and I know there are some supa (no pun intended) frivolous lawsuits going on right now, but I SWARE (yes, I said it that way). THAT:

VH1 Stole my hip hop honors idea. I know I sound like one of those wackos that show up in small claims, but they did though.

My mama told me there is no new thought under the sun, and that's what I get for slacking on broaching the subject with Dre and/or Russ Simmons. Yeah, I had drafted it out that far, too. So what I don't have any notes or any proof. Don't get me started on my C-O-N spiracies, nah!

'Tis all in the mind, my brotha, all in the mind. I don't need to take no notes. :P

Supa: Does that mean that in the near future we can talk m2m since you have Cingular, your #1 favorite wireless provider that's raising the bar? HEHE.

Supa said...


I believe ya. But next time, write that shit down.

And F*CK Cingular AND the bar it's trying to raise! Why you trying to rile me.

DPM said...

I think I'm actually mad at you. I got a gang of wax in my DJ war chest, but I don't have "Fight the Power" on 12".
Do the right thing and donate it to me. I'll do it justice..

obifromsouthlondon said...

damn kiddo you got the crates! let's go ebay!! lol.

those are some classic wax especially the PE joint. watched "do the right thing" again on saturday. brought the period all back again. reminisce.

now someone owes a honey an email of downloading ...

Supa said...

@ DPM - ummmm..nah!

@ Obi - yes. get on that.

Anonymous said...

I am soooooooo jealous!!!!!!! Why could I not be born a little earlier?!?!?!?!?!?!? I hate all you older people who grew up in the Golden Age of hip-hop

PS: Yes for this one moment, I am being a hater!!

Supa said...

@ Epsilonicus - Go 'head and hate....sorry you missed it!

The Golden Age was a beautiful thing...

Furious Styles said...

I still play vinyl and I'm an oldschool hip-hopper like you. Enjoy the find!

Elvis was a hero to most....
