Some Real Shit for Old School

So...I've been reading this blog and keeping quiet. Once again, I feel a need to decry the unreasonably impartial hip-hop leaning segments of the viewing and listening audience. As a result, I'm going to take this opportunity to, "take it ol' school." I'm going to try to post a classic, oft-unheard from album as regularly as possible.'s all illegal in the end, right?

King Crimson was a British pseudo-psychedelic progressive rock band from the late '60s, early '70s. This is their debut record, "In the Court of the Crimson King." It's very odd, but...most contemporary headbangers and hip pop-rockers would at least cite it as groundbreaking. I happen to think it holds up really well and is always worth a listen.

Hopefully this turns some of you on. Incidentally, that Beatles mashup got me really excited but for the most part kind of dissapointed. As far as I'm concerned, no rapper should ever say Yoko Ono's name unless it's followed by "has a vagina saltier than sushi." Yes, you can quote me on that.

Keep the posts coming guys (and Brynna)...they always make me feel more cultured than I really am.

Nas should have just named his album Black Guy. Why was he trying to be so controversial?
