The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!

Old School New School

Ok folks, this post is all over the fucking place. Retro here signing in for Gotty. Today's post and direction doesn't really have a direction, it's all over the place actually. It's just a showing of our musical muscle by throwing out different shit. Bigups to Dally on this one.

For the older folks, you remember these shits. The drug dealer phones we used to call 'em around my way. No reception, but big enough for the whole block to see that you were stuntin. With the fatass gold rope chains, fresh pumas/nikes/adidas, sweatsuits and 4-finger rings. Back then it was the bigger and gaudier, the better.

Not so these days. Razrs dominate the market, completely opposite of what we liked 15+ years ago. Small, sleek, simple design with some technological flair to prove that big things come in small packages, pause.

In terms of music, can you really say something is the best of ALL time? That's debatable, but to me, not at all. Sure, it all adds up to interesting discussion, but you have to think in terms of how the people of the past would react to music of the future, not just the other way around. With that said, here's a nifty little mixtape comparing Jay-z to Big Daddy Kane. I would have preferred Rakim, but eh, I'm not a mixtape dj.
