Drunken Master II is easily my favorite Jackie Chan movie, the last fight in the movie that's so fuckin amazing and I think the pinnacle of how talented Jackie Chan ever was on film, that fight actually took months to shoot I've heard which is justified due to how calculated that fight was, go watch that fight if you haven't seen it, top 5 best fights ever put on film, it's a legendary fight scene. Other than that, it's probably the darkest film from Jackie Chan with him dealing with his alcoholism and how he can only fight well when he's smacked, it's an interesting dynamic cultivated on the point that alcohol does actually make people function better (not common, but it's true that it does happen in select few people). Definitely better than the first Drunken Master, I think we can agree. It really sucks seeing this guy get old, back in his prime, dude was incredible in his creative fight scenes.

"How Much Juice You Got?" Scratch. "Timez Is Hard" instrumental.

"Now I Got A Murder Rap" scratch. "Murder Rap" instrumental.

"Nitro" is the best beat of 1989, I'm just going to say that right now. That is all.

We can all plainly agree that Bruce Lee is the catalyst of setting off the "Kung Fu Flick" movie genre in the 1970's that blew the fuck up like blaxploitation films around the same time. However, Bruce Lee's fight choreography in my humble opinion pale in comparison to the fight scenes displayed in the 1978 film Born Invincible. The plot is like a lot of other Kung Fu flicks, avenging a master or fallen friend. Not going to spoil it but the plot is very Dragon Ball reminiscent even though this came out 8 years prior to the original Dragon Ball anime syndication. The fight choreography is something like you see in the Mario & Luigi RPG games on the Nintendo handheld systems, a bunch of fancy partner moves that is completely impractical in realistic tag team hand to hand combat, it's just for spectacle sake and it pulls it off very well. Of course it's one of those badly dubbed flicks which avid Kung Fu movie watchers have come to tolerate even if it's some white guy from the valley dubbing over the original dub, this doesn't detract from the sheer bliss of the action in this flick. It's one of the underrated greatest actions films I've seen from the 70's, no stupid effects or wires, all pure athleticism from the brilliant cast of martial artists that put this masterpiece out. Highly recommended watch if you're feeling all Wu-Tang-ish one day and you just want to see some ass whoppings take place. The full movie is on YouTube last time I checked, not a dull moment to be had.

Progressive Rock really touched my soul man....."Epitaph" by King Crimson really gets you in that "Damn...." feeling.

I thought this would be a great thing to discuss seeing how this stereotype still remains true to some extent nowadays. MC Lyte's "Ruffneck" is essentially a song about how MC Lyte prefers men who are rougher around the edges, in the streets up to no good and an overall just a hood ass dude. There's a popular saying that coincides with this song perfectly which is "Nice guys finish last." Now what I'm thinking is that women that usually get with these kinds of dudes are mistreating them, cheating behind their backs, hitting them, in and out of jail and is just straight up a career fuck up to society. The stereotype is women usually prefer "the bad boy" kind of dude while women shy away from dudes that have their life going in a productive correction and is not in the streets while being well mannered. Obviously there's women that prefer the "nice guy" as opposed to the "ruffneck." I would appreciate women's stance on this song and if you think MC Lyte's message in this song was a harmful one or justified? Really anybody can tell me.

Usually when you think of modern Southern Hip-Hop, what usually comes to mind? "turn up music"? The reason why mainstream/ commercial Hip-Hop is in the state it's in nowadays? Hailing from Houston Texas, we have a clearly defined anomaly of an MC (in terms of subject matter and lyrical ability in the South) to grace Hip-Hop with intelligence more than ignorance and he made this clear throughout this album. Stories From The Black Book by K-Rino released in 1993 was an album not focused solely around gangsta shit and sporadic political statements thrown in to appease the black community as a whole in the early 90's but it's rather an MC displaying storytelling and thoughtful rhymes that make you want to rewind the whole entire song just to see where K-Rino is coming from, an example of this is "Stories From The Black Book" title track. As part of the South Park Coalition, K-Rino easily is the most technical and lyrical MC out of the whole collective (and believe me, Ganksta N-I-P and Point Blank were not so much in tune with the depth K-Rink brought to the S.P.C. Just listen to both of their first debut albums and you can see I have a valid point.) Rather than raping women and describing Jeffery Dahmer level murders, on the song "Step Into The Mind" K-Rino would rather break down the alphabet letter by letter and with 3 letters at a time (except for Y and Z) he would give an acronym in how he describes his political beliefs going on in America, it's so well done and creative for its time. "Ultimate Flow" is unlike any other song that was released in the South at the time, the sheer lyrical ability and slick flow as K-Rino delivers his rhymes is something similar to Scarface's solo song on Grip It! On That Other Level "Seek And Destroy" only K-Rino was so much more lyrical, great song. For a debut album, it's mind boggling how K-Rino never broke out like how the Geto Boys did, he was the defining intelligent MC of the South like how every other region in US had one.

Masta Ace's best work in my opinion. In terms of certain themes on this album I can relate to is definitely "Jeep Ass Niguh" and "Late Model Sedan" the latter being my favorite song on the album. For an album released in 1993, I believe this was where "Real Hip-Hop" rhetoric started to beat down Hip-Hop that was more commercial and not rugged enough. Way before Hopsin was doing that shit and countless others you had Masta Ace doing it in a way I find extremely executed well. I'm not about that "Real Hip-Hop" shit but I appreciate the title track a lot for the audacity to do that. Every fuckin beat on here are Jeep Beats, harsh bass lines, hard ass drums, repetitive and loud. It's probably the defining sound if you want to know what 1993 Hip-Hop was all about on the East Coast at least. I'm not sure if this is true but I'm going to say it anyway, back in the day when Masta Ace performed the track "Slaughtahouse" live, the crowd would get more hype to the first section of the song (the West Coast sounding section) as opposed to the East Coast sounding second section. Do you know how awkward that should have been for Ace if this actually happened, damn son lol. With most Masta Ace albums there is a loosely tied in concept to the album that's not explained blatantly on the songs but in an interview when Ace was talking about putting this album together, it's an old interview somewhere on YouTube, but it's vaguely about Masta Ace trying to go after the things he felt were fucking up the music industry and black community, if I remember correctly. Dopest shit ever, oh yeah, one of my favorite album covers of all time as well, straight up non gentrified, gritty Brooklyn New York shit.

Lately I've been listening to a lot of Ice-T, I don't know why but there seems to be a love or hate affinity for him as an MC. Some arguments I've heard are people saying he consistently says something whack in at least one verse on every song he made. I personally don't know where the fuck this comes from or my ears are clearly not detecting these wack lines. His 3rd album (with that oh so relevant album title according to today's treatment of the first amendment) to me this is his second best album as I can say for anyone that knows about Ice-T's music would claim his OG Original Gangster album is the no brainer best shit he ever done. Back to this album, you had bitches like Tipper Gore trying to censor everything about what Ice-T can within his legal right write anything he feels fit to put on an album and then the bitch wants to say music like this can't exist as its only harmful to listeners. The 1990 Oprah interview with Ice-T is absolutely brilliant and I strongly advise you to go watch it as Oprah digs into the song "The Iceberg" off this album and analyzing lines like "Fucked a bitch with a flashlight," it's hilarious how in those times lines like that deserved national media attention (oh how far we have came, gotdamn.) Ice-T defends it all but go watch that shit for more details. One other thing that's so overlooked (just my opinion) about this album is this album was essentially a trend setter for MC's actually speaking out against the system as this would become even more popular in the advent in the 90's when the Black Power Hip-Hop was at it's peak. That's the way I see it at least. (Lol this is so poorly written but fuck it) It's actually kind of sad how Ice-T will forever be pigeonholed as a Gangster turned into TV cop, I never thought this affected his legacy in Hip-Hop at all when you have a bunch of mothafuckas right now being the biggest hypocrites and being something they're not. Classic album in my opinion, why isn't this album not talked about more often? Damn let's have a discussion on what you think about this album.

My new favorite song for the next month. I'm dead fuckin serious, I'm getting into Vaporwave heavy. Also enjoy the hood drama visuals.
