things-done-changed-wu-tangs-prophecies-of-hiphop

Back in June of 1997, The much anticipated album WU-TANG FOREVER dropped and did not disappoint. The follow up to 36 Chambers lived up to the hype and then some. A huge part of the double cd was disc one and disc two intro’s. Our blog will focus on DISC TWO INTRO and the wise words of THE RZA being applied in BREAKING TERMS OF TODAY. RZA’s prophecies broke down what Hiphop Culture as whole was to become…. Read more

Macklemore’s Bboy track

mack

Last week, rapper Macklemore won 4 grammys. I don’t care much about commercial award shows since today’s commercial Hiphop “artists” are not producing much “art”. His win ended up causing a racial controversy that led to Macklemore stating an apology for winning. Couple days later, I was having a conversation with a friend on facebook where we were going back and forth, with me saying how much Macklamore sucks and him saying he does not. I… Read more

The evolution of MF DOOM. By VICE

DOOM-MM

I’ll say this up front MF DOOM is my favorite artist. I don’t care how many people disagree or say something about how “typical” it is of me..or even how he sent fake versions of himself to do shows because he couldn’t make the appearance. During a time when I thought I had listened to all the good hip hop there was and the label RAWKUS was dead…DOOM emerged  for me. Lyrically one of the… Read more

De La Soul feat. The spirit of the Wu Tang

de-la-soul

People complain about hiphop nowadays and how they miss the golden era. Well fortunately for all of us there is De La Soul. The group plans to release about one single every month in order to combat the industry and it’s saturation of mixtapes and street releases. In their latest single they sampled the intro from Disc 2 of the infamous WU TANG: FOREVER album and made magic. I’d say its probably one of the… Read more

Beats & Breaks

Beats & Breaks

Breaks, the common root shared in our culture. I’m talking about percussion, bass, drums, that sound that makes you just want to get loose. DJs have been looping and sampling the instrumentals ever since the beginning of Hip Hop. Although there is one question that comes to mind: why the breaks? Why are bboys/bgirls drawn to this style of music? The answer is simple. We are human. Far before the first bboy even hit a… Read more

RAKIM & RA The Rugged Man talk about BIG DADDY KANE

rakim-ra-rugged-studio

Earlier this summer, R.A. the Rugged Man tweeted about an opportunity to work with Rakim on a song for a movie soundtrack. Since then, he’s been pretty ecstatic (who wouldn’t be?) and has been sharing parts of his conversations with Rakim. If you know R.A., you might also know he’s a devout boxing fan (Check out his two part “discussion” with Mayweather here and here). Anyways, one of R.A.’s questions to Rakim was about his… Read more

Sway & King Tech – The Anthem Feat. Eminem, Xbizit, RZA, KRS ONE and more..

sway-and-king-tech-video

In honor of King Tech and Sway following us on Twitter (@TheBboySpot follow us), I decided to feature what I feel is the illest music video ever featuring Bboys. The Anthem. I will never forget the 1st time this video came out on BET. It was revolutionary, mind blowing and life changing. I knew I wanted to break; I knew I wanted to be involved with Hiphop for the rest of my life. It’s rare… Read more

The Record Connection

the-record-connection-main

Last Sunday Mex and I spent the day at a record show held at the fair grounds in Orlando, Florida. Spinning at the Ground Crowns Bboy jam the night before and staying up late didn’t make waking up early for the show an easy task. With the help of Negra (Mex and Gina’s cat), I was up and ready to go looking for the perfect beat. These record shows are a good place to find… Read more

miami-vinyl-main

I recently attended a very interesting panel discussion featuring some of Florida’s music history figures. The panel was held at the Miami Art Museum as part of a series discussing South Florida music throughout the years and is part of related programs to the current featured gallery, “The Record”. On the Panel were Henry Stone (record label owner and producer), Willie J. Clarke (song writer, musician), Jeff Lemlich (author and record collector of Florida music)… Read more
