:: Immortal Technique - Revolutionary Vol. 1 & 2 ::

As a hip hop artist, Immortal Technique is most known for his strong political views and controversial lyrics. Whether it be his references to poverty in America, the wrongdoings of government, media, religion and law enforcement, this is one MC trying to make a difference in a positive way. Technique is a very outspoken member of the hip hop community battling against the evil's of the industry. On more than one occasion, he has expressed how no hip hop artist really makes the kind of loot they act like they do; its all about the record companies and their exploitation of artists. In his own words, "all that shit is borrowed," referencing the cars, the money and the jewelz we so often see in hip hop videos. While Immortal Technique has a huge catalogue of tracks, only 2 official LP's have been released, both being independent. His 3rd release is set for later this year and is entitled, "The Middle Passage," so when it drops be sure to cop that.

:: Smitty - Voice Of The Ghetto ::

The Bootis Connection

Lately I've been droppin joints from the golden age of hip hop (early-mid 90's). So today I bring you a new '06 artist drop.

Known for that track "Diamonds On My Neck," Smitty has been behind the scenes ghostwriting for the likes of Dr. Dre and P. Diddy since 2000. After sneaking on to the set of Dre's movie, The Wash, and waiting for 16 hours, Smitty spit a couple rhymes for the good doctor and within 2 weeks was in the studio. Ghostwriting songs for the movies soundtrack, as well as Dre's forever shelved Detox, led to an immediate offer to sign with Aftermath; however, Smitty turned it down along with offers from Roc-A-Fella, Arista, Capitol Records, Def Jam, Elektra, and Jive. Deciding to settle down with J Records, this Face Mob member, co-signed by non other than Scarface, is set to drop "Life Of A Troubled Child" later this year. As a little teaser/buzz before his debut, Smitty drops "The Voice Of The Ghetto," so we can get better acquainted...check out the crazy production on this joint!!!!

:: Saafir Discography ::

Saafir, also known as, "Saucee Nomad" "Hunchback of Oakland" & "Mr. No No" has been in the game more than a minute now. Many of you may know him as part of the group, The Golden State Warriors, along with Ras Kass and Xzibit. But Saafir has been around since 2pac and the days of Digital Underground. While both working as dancers for Digital Underground back in the early 90's, Pac and Saafir were roomies in the Oaktown. After making his debut rap appearence on Casual's Fear Itself & Digital Underground's The Body-Hat Syndrome, this freestyle master broke free to record his own album debut entitled Boxcar Sessions in 94. Although Saafir, Ras Kass and X to the Z have recorded tracks together, featuring each other on their solo drops, I'm still wondering if these 3 brilliant lyricists will EVER drop an LP together.

Huge propz go out to Kenneth Rogers for droppin this bomb, cuz Ive been searchin for these for a long time...Thx again for coming thru :)

:: The Ultimate D.I.T.C. Post ::

As the Ultimate Boot Camp Post was embraced by so many, I was compelled to do another ULTIMATE post...this time, like the last, we run through New York, and check the powerhouse group, D.I.T.C.!!!!!!!

The Bootis Connection

The New York based hip hop collective known as D.I.T.C, or the Diggin' In The Crates crew, derived the name from the well known practice of sampling by DJ's (note: DJ Premier). Comprised of 8 members in total, this crew is not just made up of MC's. Blessing the M.I.C. are members A.G., Big L, Diamond D, Fat Joe, Lord Finesse, and O.C. As well, the crew has its 2 main producers Showbiz and Buckwild (Lord Finesse and Diamond D also produce), although many other DJ's have completed major projects for the crew; most notably DJ Premier, Prince Paul, and Pete Rock. As D.I.T.C started to gain recognition and some spins commercially they were hit with the untimely death of Big L, one of the greatest MC's to EVER kick a flow. For all those who know, L had a magnificent gift to spit rhymes like none other with a flow that would just glide along with no effort at all.

A once dominant hip hop group in the 90's, D.I.T.C slowly deteriorated in the new millenium, partially due to the deaths of Big L and Big Pun, a close affiliate and friend of the group. But, one of the largest setbacks was the lack of success of Fat Joe's solo career in the 2K. Most people never heard of Joe before 50 Cent went and started talkin sh*t, but Fat Joe is a legend in the Bronx and the old Joe would have straight coldcocked 50 and ended that beef with NO confusion. However, a slimmer and more GUCCI'd out Joe seems to have lost that killer D.I.T.C edge that he once had, giving up his grimey street style in order to make 'hits' like that 50 b*tch.

*A Note To Joe* Real hip hop heads want the old Fat Joe back!!!!!

:: Das Efx Discography ::

Okay so I figured if I was gonna up one I had to up them all...this brooklyn based duo (Skoob a.k.a Books & Dre a.k.a Krazy Drayz) broke through the scene under the wings of EPMD in the early 90's. Often imitated, but never duplicated, Das EFX has one of the most distinct lyrical flows in hip hop, and here for your enjoyment is their full discography.

:: A Tribe Called Quest Discography ::

In the early 1990's not many hip hop groups were more influential than A Tribe Called Quest. Comprised of 3 members, Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, A Tribe Called Quest broke through the hip hop scene with their jazz-rap style, in a time when gangsta rap reined supreme. Rollin with the likes of De La Soul, Leaders Of The New School, and the Jungle Brothers, Tribe helped spawn the early form of concsious rap. Although the group disbanded following The Love Movement, with the current state of hip hop one can only hope for a reunion in the near future.
