The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!


Today, I wanna take you back to bring you forward.

I had no trouble picking where to start.

This artist is definitely a part of hip-hop history.

This album is not.

At least not in the mainstream sense.

It should be.

Paul has worked his magic over the years with overwhelming results...Gravediggaz, Stetsasonic, Handsome Boy Modeling School, De La Soul & more.

None of those touch this album.



Paul has been well known as the master of skits.

Here, he laces all the skits WITH the music to create a movie...on wax.

The skits are not filler as on most albums but help the story to progress.

The main characters, two cats, Tariq (Breeze Brewin from the Juggaknots) and True (a rapper by the name of Sha...who we haven't heard from since apparently lol).

Even as seemingly unknowns, these two shine.

The rest of the cast is made up of names well all know.

Chris Rock as a crackhead.

Everlast as a cop.

Big Daddy Kane as a pimp.

Kool Keith as a gun dealer.

Also, Chubb Rock (jea jea jea!!!) comes thru and rips a verse, Biz Mark beatboxes, Special Ed pops in....need I go on?

Each mc that rhymes manages to stay on topicand play his part.

Not for nothing, this is one of the most complete albums you'll hear ever created.

My favs?

Big Daddy Kane - "Mackula's Theory"

Chubb Rock & Biz Markie - "Mr. Large"

Breezly Brewin, Sha, Superstar - "Put The Next Man On"

But don't listen to those as seperate have to experience the whole.

Prince Paul - A Prince Among Thieves

So yeah...the single has been literally STUCK in my head for a while now. I been singin it, switchin the lyrics old school style...."My name Johnnyyyy...last name Gotttyyyy"

Charlie Wilson - Charlie, Last Name, Wilson

And has it really been that long since 1990 or am I actually getting older?

Michael Jackson - Thriller (1990)

Pat's home you bastards!


In the next week or so, we'll cross a milestone. We ain't Mickey D's but we'll have over 100,000 served! Thanks again to all for the continued support and keep spreadin the word.



Postscript - Come see me @ Myspace yo! I'm new & I need some friends...birds mainly but I'll add you dudes as well lol. The foolishness will continue there.
