I make it a point not to do a whole helluva lot during the weekend. And for me the weekend starts early. Still, sometimes I happen across something that just can't wait until the recommencement of my standard work week, and I am led to drop it on y'all posthaste. This is such a case.
I like a lot of artists within the sphere of nerdy music – shit, that's the juice that keeps this blog and my podcast going – but there are some guys whom, in addition to enjoying their music, I also genuinely like as people. There are cats out there that are fun, likable, interesting characters as well as talented artists.
You know the usual subjects: guys like Beefy and Antisocial and Doc. Folks that I support as musicians but whom I also speak of fondly as individuals. The comprehensive list is lengthy indeed, and I reckon that says something for the community spirit inherent in the nerdcore movement.
Pinky is, in my opinion, one of the shining stars of 3rd gen nerdcore; he's got this genuine creative spark about him that I find intoxicating. Plus he's always happy to talk comics with me.
My adoration of Metamystiks Inc. is well known, and Dragon is a core part of that magic mixture of equal parts real nerd and real hip-hop. What y'all don't know is that SDX is also always down for a lengthy bullshit session with yours truly about music or women or fine Greek cuisine.
And so it is with great pleasure that I offer to you, oh gracious readers, a Web exclusive track before I send you off to whatever fun and frivolity you've got planned for your Friday. It's Pink's love song to the hip-hop of the 1990's, and a veritable meditation on one of my favorite acts of the era, A Tribe Called Quest. And though it's hard to imagine the fire-breather rhyming on a light-hearted party track, it even features SDX on the chorus.
Oh, fuck yeah!
So enjoy, and have a pleasant weekend.
