E’s song of the day
February 4, 2010
We’ve crossed the halfway point of the week and we’re on the home stretch to the weekend. Of course, your boy E is booked solid through next weekend (my next actual day off isn’t until the 20th), so I won’t be getting any rest, but the work scene will at least be different on the weekend. I’ve been thinking a lot about all of the great hip hop that has yet to grace these pages and it’s fairly astounding that today’s artist has yet to make an appearance. This guy got his start selling home-made tapes of his rhymes on the streets of Oakland at age 14 – that’s what i call hustling for your dream. 18 (yes, 18!!!) albums later he finds himself, in my opinion, one of the all-time greats. There are plenty of hot tracks to choose from, but I’ve selected one that is (only) slightly lesser known. I first heard this track off of the soundtrack to the movie “The Corrupter” starring Chow Yun-Fat and Mark Wahlberg (great soundtrack, only an OK movie). Today’s jam: Too Short – Be my Dirty Love. Enjoy….
