I told y'all before: flattery will get you everywhere! UK group, The Delusionists has taken a cue from GZA's "Labels" and written an ode to their favorite rap blogs including yours truly's hip hop-ish daily screed, The Kitchen. Check it:
This rap shit Beats Laying About, so I had to take a minute dedicated a shout,
To every Hip Hop Connection Digital direction providers
Who act like a Sensei and guide us.
Through these Hip Hop Chronicles of Riddick like Vin Diesel
U-Music buffs must have been puffing them Cocaine Blunts (just a quick toke),
Hip Hop Isn’t Dead, nah it just eloped to the Big Smoke.
Believe the Hip Hop Hype Dog,
If you ain’t heard of us you ain’t checking for the right blog.
Oh Word? You never heard the fly chatter
Of a Bonafide nutter on a Certified Banger?
My Style43 times nanger than most,
To redefine The Meaning of Dope rhyme patterns and quotes.
The Underground Strikes Back from the great depression
With Bare Beats in them Basement Sessions.
You might hear one or 2DopeBoyz
No Airs N Graces and prone to make noise
Like “mate what you want!?!” Stay Blatantly Blunt
Pushing UKHH straight to the front (that’s us!).
Repping UK All Day,
Be careful ‘cause Life Just Bounces away
When you play with Vocal Swords that slaughter chumps,
Better Wake Your Daughter Up, if that bitch is sleeping.
Had to switch to a Different Kitchen,
‘Cause the raw Unkut left the kitchen reeking.
With something different to these drug-obsessed amateurs
And only push dope via Suspect Packages.
(Yeah) And the beat plays on
And we don’t stop rocking ‘til the DJ Gone (gone).
God willing we can make Top Billin’ Above Ground
Without dumbing down to a club sound.
Strictly Independant, my brothers and me
And you can hit the button marked RWD
And you’ll agree that it’s wack, Nah Right, shit’s Fat
Lace lyrics with links just to give love back
To all the digital connects.
It may be a blatantly obvious and pandering ploy but I'm always honored to be considered like this cos, unlike gulp, 7 years ago when I started doing Different Kitchen, I pretty much knew every dude who did a rap blog and cats like Eskay used to comment on my site. Now there are a lot of f-cking rap blogs out there so thanks to Mr. Benjamin Black & his Delusionists crew and also to anyone else who still thinks enough of what I do here to still take the time to come through and see what I'm talking about. Seriously, its appreciated! As always, please leave comments if you dig or even hate something I've posted!
By the way: dig what you hear from The Delusionists? Check out their debut album, Prolusion Plus on Bandcamp:
