Whiz Kid - He's Got The Beat (12" Single)

Whiz Kid - He's Got the Beat (12" Single)
Tommy Boy, 1985

I'm going to be honest with you. I have never played this. I don't know the song. 

However, I love this cover. It is the epitome of what I loved fashion-wise in the '80s. It is so old school!

The tracksuit - stylin'. That belt buckle - I loved mine when I was a kid, and would wear one today in a heartbeat. Stylin'. The fat laces with the design - stylin'. The gold chains - stylin'. The green, blue, and white color scheme - fresh to death. ON YOUR KID??!! Come on! Super Stylin'!

Lootpack - Weededed Remix (12" Single)

Lootpack -Lootpack-Weededed-Stones-Throw-Madlib Weededed Remix b/w Loopdigga
Feat. Rasco, Oh No, and Medaphoar
Record Label: Stones Throw, 2000

My introduction to Madlib came through Lootpack's "Weededed". I was instantly in love and it led me on an incredible wild ride trying to find all the music that I could that was connected in any sort of way. So began my love of Stones Throw.

This song is so much fun to play when I am DJing. The bassline does it for me. Madlib's production is showing the early signs of greatness that we will grow to love. Wildchild is straight spitting. Is it too soon to consider this one a hip hop classic?
