me and andy made another one of our super long spotify playlists with a focus on 90s and early 2000s hiphop. andy has a way of finding a specific vibe in beats that unifies the weirdest stuff sometimes, but there's lots of deep cuts and plenty of that soulful jazzy head nodding vibe. check it out: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/34k3fXtlyerybcdRiJTqQR?si=HTu3a-7BT6G-DmXiFpfd1w

reposting this from the ODB thread because holy shit this is a major ODB find IMO

WOW

so this is a track called "Drug Free" off the Deadly Venoms album (a Wu affiliated all-woman group - all vets N-Tyce, J-Boo, Champ MC, and Finesse) which was never formally released but I guess CD promos escaped.

anyway, this is up there with the all-time unhinged ODB performances

MOOD - Info for the Streets

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Saturday, 17 July 2021 17:19 (one week ago) link

wow i love divine sounds and mood! those are both personal classics.

also granny that reminded me of one of the best j dilla beats: his remix for mood's "secrets of the sand" from 1999.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aec2SYEXT68

that was pre-"j dilla" moniker, so it was credited to jay dee at the time and has since gotten a little forgotten, unfortunately.

nas feat. maxwell — "no one else in the room" (2004)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htISO_yapc4

i like to dis nas for being inconsistent after illmatic, but the truth is that all of his albums have a couple solid jams. i am still legitimately salty that, to this day, this is the only hiphop collaboration maxwell has done. at least it's good.

DJ Spinna - More Colors

I posted another Spinna track upthread. Only way I can listen to this album now is on YouTube. There's some other strong tracks on it. Thought the concept on this one was very well executed.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 28 July 2021 18:58 (two days ago) link

oooh, i love dj spinna!! that's a really good jam.

it might be approaching heresy, but i've always thought his remix for de la soul's "stakes is high" is just as good as the original with the jay dee beat.

I’m a big fan of that spinna track. I think it’s actually a remix of the original. I probably posted about it somewhere on ilx when it came out like 11 years ago or something
