Twitter Hath Spoken: Vinyl
Before I was going to start tidying up my place a bit this early morning. I asked my followers on Twitter to help me decide which music to blast this early morning. The choices were: 1. old vinyl records or 2. mid-90s hip hop which I REALLY have been getting into pretty heavy lately; most notably albums by the following: The Large Professor, InI, Deda Baby Pa & Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth. I’ve called this collective of music & given the Twitter hashtag: #FutureFlavas1
The popular vote was my old vinyl LPs which I not only just listen to but I actually record & use for cataloguing purposes as well as to sift through samples to work with.
Anyway, as my appreciation for my followers for chiming in… I’m giving you this video. It took me a long time to upload it due to space issues on my iPhone (I basically just need to send all of my media to my MobileMe account for storage). I didn’t want to waste time so I just kept trying. I think about 1:05 was truncated off of the end of this video. Either way… Enjoy!
So the record I chose was Domenic Troiano’s self-titled record. I wasn’t going to “cheat” my followers by breaking out a copy of Stevie Wonder’s Songs In The Key of Life or anything common like that. I actually don’t know if this record is common or not but… me likey & hopefully you likey too.
- Any hip hop head from the Tri-State in the late 20′s to 30-somethings+ ought to know about Future Flavas. If you don’t… You have yet to live.
- I have to be very selective with my words as some people wouldn’t appreciate being referred to as a ‘god’. No shots @ any of the 5 Percenters though. Peace!
