Blackstar - Respiration ft. Common (1998)

three of my favorite verses from three of my favorite emcees…

Listen

Black Star & Black Thought | Respiration [Flying High Remix] | 1999

Beautiful remix from the Black Star’s second single from their eponymously titled album from 1998, made by the soul brother numero 1 Pete Rock and with a guest verse by Black Thought. There was another remix found on the “Hip Hop Classics Vol. 1” compilation album, also made by Pete Rock but with a guest verse by Common instead of Black Thought.

“Bridging the Gap” tradition and digital media

Big ups to all the artists that inspired me: Public Enemy, KRS-ONE, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Star, Jungle Brothers, Slick Rick, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Brand Nubian, Grand Puba and Gang Starr!!

Hip Hop will never be the same!

Can I please have your opinion on this post (warning: stupidity): twelves-kidneys*dot*tumblr*dot*com/post/77503585593/things-that-make-me-want-to-set-myself-on-fire?

lol this is the post that kali was raging about earlier in my ask box like

if i could be bothered i could go down that list and argue each and every point with them, but i really don’t like confrontation lol, it’s not good for my mental health, especially when it is with someone who clearly isn’t going to have their mind changed, i do not see the point.

but like just cherry picking a few, i’ve already talked about how rose putting the doctor before the universe is a flat out lie, but to have that right after a point defending river song from the same accusation when she canonically held the universe HOSTAGE? oh my god. rose’s life doesn’t REVOLVE around him. it just doesn’t. wasn’t born to kill the doctor, she wasn’t brainwashed to be obsessed with him all her life, she didn’t die to save him, she didn’t stay in jail to protect him. she has a life outside of him in jackie, pete, mickey, mo, shareen, jimmy stone, howard, jericho street junior school etc. River’s life does revolve around him, she has no life outside of him.

‘glorifies ten and rose’ how can you glorify something which isn’t bad. that doesn’t make sense, the definition of glorify is ’represent as admirable, unjustifiably’. i think the word they are looking for is ‘like’.
