Death of the Boombox

“Death of the Boombox” is a song that I did on the “WORKING MAN” album by Prolyphic & Buddy Peace. It also features our Brooklyn fam, the Metermaids. This song is not a rehashing of the played out “hip-hop is dead” argument, nor is it a eulogy for the revered portable stereos of the past. It is an energetic return to a lost moment in time when sharing music with friends didn’t involve an internet connection. Songs were simply blasted throughout the neighborhood from two speakers perched on top of a b-boy’s shoulder. “Dig…put your back into it.”

“Pitchers of Silence” lyrics

I never held a funeral for that big part of me that died.
I need to put these thoughts to rest.
I need to find a peace of mind.
I need to piece my mind,
I need to find a piece of mind to rest in.
I need to find someone to confide in then let the rest in.
I need to start resting.
Needless to say, I couldn’t hide.
While thinking, Read the rest of this entry »

Have a Hell of a New Year


Here is a live version of “Hell of a Year” where I rap the song over a piano by Nathan Matthews. Every few years something happens that makes the lyrics of this song ring more true to me. This happened to be one of those years, so I’d like to dedicate this live version to 2012. My resolution for the new year will be to finally drop my first official album since Read the rest of this entry »
