Elemental 104-The Best Of Each Hip-Hop Element This Week 3/21/15–3/27/15

PacReppin2YearsForMe

It has been 2 years since I started doing this weekly wrap up of all the Hip-Hop Elements . I first started it because every other so called “Rap” music site completely ignored anything but music , and since my site focused on all the Elements , I thought I should let everybody know each week what was the standout’s within them . I first started the site itself because nobody was posting MC , DJ , BREAKING , GRAFFITI , KNOWLEDGE all in one spot . I’ve gotten a great response and loyal followers since then and I appreciate it . This week I will include 2 posts from each category in honor of the segment’s anniversary . Here’s to Elemental 208.

Every Friday I pick the best representation of each Hip-Hop Element-MC,DJ,BREAKING,GRAFFITI-from the past week.Knowledge is to some including me the 5th Element.

Another joint from the archives, produced by one of my favorite producers ODDISEE! This is a joint that I spit with my brother Big Daddy Kane.

Kenny Dope-Anything Goes Mix w/ 101 Apparel

After you listen to the sampler above go to 101apparel.com to order the full mix that comes on CD with a T-Shirt , and limited cassette.

101 sais:

Kenny “DOPE” Gonzalez is one of the most prolific artists of the modern music age. The four time Gram- my nominated musical genius has been entertaining and astounding the masses alike with his fusions of house, hip-hop, Latin, jazz, funk & soul, reggae, alternative pop and broken beats for 20 years. Known as a living encyclopedia of beats and tagged with the nickname “DEBO” by his closest friends, Kenny is a purveyor of sonic masterpieces.

Kenny Dope sais:

Im really happy to collaborate with a brand that is just as passionate about music as I am. It’s dope to be able to share a mix with you that showcases all the sounds that I work with and love. I appreciate 101 Apparel including me in their line, its great to bring you an exclusive mix and the Limited Edition Tee. Go get it 101 Apparel. Peace

KNOWLEDGE

Nothing wrong with having a double dose of Knowledge in this thing of ours.

Shirt King Phade-Documentary-Official Trailer

The forefather of the hip-hop brands (arguably the real street wear companies) that would boom in the 1990s — whether it was PNB Nation, Phat Farm, Too Black Guys, Triple 5 Soul, Cross Colors or FUBU — was a spot called Shirt Kings in Jamaica Queens’ Colosseum Mall run by Edwin ‘PHADE” Sacasa, Rafael “KASHEME” Avery and Clyde “NIKE” Harewood. PHADE had been putting in work on trains with legends like KASE 2 after a move from Brooklyn to the Bronx in the 1970s, but it wasn’t until he took his skills to cotton in 1984 that he realized graffiti on apparel could be a lucrative endeavor, “Seeing the reaction to my graffiti pictures in school gave me the confidence to know I had something.” The move from spray can to airbrush wasn’t too severe a transition, “It was the same just a little bit more detailed.” Anybody that ever appreciated a hand style or graffiti iconography on a t-shirt, probably owes the Shirt Kings a little something.

Cope2-Kings Destroy-Graffiti Film

Who else but one of the greatest writers in the history of Hip-Hop . Cope2’s original Kids Destroy crew was changed to Kings Destroy and you’ll see the evolution in the film . It also features many icons from the Hip-Hop world including KRS-ONE , Flavor Flav , and Rakim . Other members of the Kings Destroy crew are represented as well as other classic Graff writers. Henry Chalfant has even remarked that he didn’t have to make a Style Wars 2 because this movie qualifies as the follow up to that classic film .

You can buy this on DVD here Kings Destroy
