Jail House Rap by the Fat Boys is the Greatest Hip-Hop song EVER.

It's a musical feast.  The blend of funk and hip-hop on that track has never been eclipsed, in my opinion.  The way Kurtis Blow combined beatboxing and the piano is amazing.  He gives hip-hop a groove that's fierce yet playful and fun.  I never get tired of listening to that joint.

The Real and Beautiful Truth of The Fat Boys

I couldn't write a better article about the Fat Boys than the author of the great article linked above.  The author, Scott Woods and I, obviously, both share fond memories of the Fat Boys.  I remember playing basketball, every day, all summer long with that first Fat Boys album blasting on a boombox.  By the end of the summer, the dust was so thick from playing on the dirt court, our black hair was dusty blond by dusk.

I did what I do and made a tribute playlist to go along with Mr. Woods post, so young heads can appreciate the original Disco Three, the way us older heads do.

I had the pleasure of hearing DJ Messy Marv perform at Summer House 2018 in Columbia SC at the end of June and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Of course, I had to search for any of his available mixes on the web.  Hoping to find something on SoundCloud or Mixcloud, I did my due diligence to no avail. Sad to say it was a tall task.  I found many a "messy marv" yet none did house music like the one that rocked Earlewood Park.

Thanks to DJ Ant B and In The Zone Entertainment, who also rocked the park, I was able to put together a YouTube playlist. I love to spread the word about DJ's doing their thing but it's hard to do when there's not much to share.  Hope that somehow we can convince DJ Messy Marv to record and upload his awesome mixes to either Mixcloud, Podomatic,  or SoundCloud, so we can enjoy the groove when we can't catch him live.

Thank again to DJ Kelly Kel for bringing DJ Ant B, DJ Messy Marv, and all the other DJs to the house music desert of the Carolinas.

Raw Soul Radio Live is a radio station set up strategically to assist independent soul, Jazz, Neo Soul RnB artists in order to further push and expose their talents to an active listening audience seeking access to listen and purchase their music online.

Their Mission is to help both new and emerging, both signed and unsigned artists and bands, in order to empower and expose their talents to the world through Internet radio.

Born out of frustration for the lack of exposure and support for independent artists being played on both underground and mainstream specialist radio stations, Raw Soul Radio live promises to revolutionize the game.

All their presenters and dedicated specialist DJ’s unique in their own way promise to diligently play and name all tracks from all spectrums of the many undiscovered and memorable soul genres in all its various classic and futuristic innovative forms.

By the accepted definition, neo- Independent soul is a paradox. Neo means new. Soul is timeless.  All associated splinters of neo-soul, nu jazz, Broken beat, Nu groove artists, and Hip-Hop in all their various ways and represented forms perform balancing acts exploring classic soul idioms while injecting a living breathing presence into time-tested musical formulas.

Raw Soul Radio’s ambition is to humanize and culturalize Raw R&B which has often been reduced to a factory-manufactured mass under perfected product.

Like sushi Independent – SOUL is fresh enough to be served RAW.

The story behind 'Funkin for Jamaica (NY)' by Tom Browne

Mini-documentary about Tom Browne's song Funkin for Jamaica (NY)

This song means so much to me because it literally sounds like the best party ever.  The so-called "background" conversation that actually made up the "lyrics" of the song sounded like what I wanted to be doing in a party.  Choppin-it-up, jivin', and chewin-the-fat with good friends while soulful funk plays in the background.  What else do you need... absolutely nothing.

Only Thought is Creative

This is a Bodybyloud Vint's Loudtalk in the GetRight Spot! podcast episode where K1L2 and I discuss the principle set forth by Thomas Troward that "Only Thought is Creative". We get deep about what this principle means and the truth in it.  It's our very first elevation session together.  Listen to the YouTube edition for the full episode.

I, Bodybyloud! Vint, am a mental scientist because The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science by Thomas Troward, helped convince me that we have power in our consciousness.

Mental scientists believe that control of conscious thought and feeling have a creative effect in life.  I've always been a thinker and believed thoughts have creative power.   This belief was affirmed through the writings of the Honorable Judge Thomas Troward.  I now consider his writings to be a master teacher's guidebook on how to live a wonderful life.


The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science

Plain and simple, I, Bodybyloud! Vint send out a challenge to ALL atheist.  I challenge Any and All atheist to listen to or read The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science by Thomas Troward and explain to me why you deny the existence of the supreme creative force, the universal mind, GOD.

If you love to share Inspirational and Motivational gifs, memes, videos, books, seminars, etc.  Join the Conscious Elevation group here on Bodybyloud!  Let's motivate and inspire others to become the best version of themselves they can possibly be, as we journey to do the same.

Live the Ideal Which is Love.

I had a little something to say about the Kanye West debate this past week, so I recorded my mentality on my ride to work.  A friend and I were discussing Mr. West on the "books" and I believe I had some poignant thoughts on the matter so I decided to include the FB post in the post.  Hope my buddy don't mind.  Our discussion led me to the idea that we should all, Live the Ideal Which is Love.

Dig's  Bio

I go by the name “Dig” from the Eastside of Pittsburgh. The name was given to me by my brother from another mother. I started rapping at the age of 18.  Clout to the rapper Tupac Shakur. Growing up in Eastside Pittsburgh I experience the harsh reality of drugs, violence, and everyday struggle. These real-life issues strengthened my passion as an artist to continue to write songs about things that aren’t seen in the public eye. I want my music to be a positive voice for people that are living in the environment that I’ve grown up in. I also want my music to be relatable to my listeners and contain substance. Which lead me to write my First hit “I’m in the game” that was featured on Bkwradio and also Miami Paradise radio. Followed by some of my newer songs LA story and Volvo classy.

I am currently working on pushing my music video for my new song "Legacy".I’m constantly in the studio recording, keeping my mind fresh and focus on my next hit. In addition to my music, I'm working on my clothing line. I currently have T-shirts and sweatshirts that support my moment and music. However, I must say my four kids are my biggest motivations. I want them to look at their father “Dig” as a voice for others through music and a positive influence on their generations to come. Ya Dig me!

After their incredibly well-received debut 'Big Luxury' back in 2015, and production credits on Illa J's critically acclaimed self-titled LP, Vancouver duo Potatohead People (aka Nick Wisdom & AstroLogical) went quiet for 3 years...leaving a legion of worldwide fans puzzled & hungry for new music.

We're happy to announce that the wait is finally over, and the first official single from their upcoming album 'Nick & Astro's Guide To The Galaxy' is finally here.

"Morning Sun" featuring Danish vocalist Nanna B (Anderson. Paak, Mndsgn) is in part a melancholy piece with knocking drums, an infectious bassline, and a soulful, shimmering hook.

At the inception of a particular genre of music, the originators or pioneers, generally make use of ideas and concepts which have come before.

Nowhere is this truer than in the case of Hip Hop... It is well known that early Hip Hop derived its core sound by incorporating elements of Disco, Soul, Rock, Jazz & Funk... I think it could safely be said that Hip Hop was inspired by these...

That is, until the arrival of artist like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, Rza & MF DOOM... These particular artists took the formula and flipped it. They set out to make Soul, Rock, Jazz & Funk that was inspired by Hip Hop.

I too decided to take this approach with the soundtrack to my first feature-length film... It's entitled "THE ILLAMENTALS...Acts I, II, III". The film, "M.J. McCoy's...LEAN".

I've coined the phrase "Sonic Cinema" to explain the concept, in that, the composition's sonically relate the meaning & emotionality of the story.

It's a playfully funky little piece of work that's just dripping with soul.

I share this in an effort to raise awareness of the project as a whole and to demonstrate its merits...So if you can dig... then dig it by showing your support, visit the page, "Like, Follow & Share"..better still... Hit the link & buy it for $1... assist me in accomplishing what some say & believe can't be done.

MC Lyte is Top 15 Greatest Emcee of All Time

Where she ranks is a matter of opinion, of course.  She's one of my favorites and this is where she ranks to me.  I won't get into who she's above or below.  Notice I didn't say, female emcee, because there's no reason to separate male and female emcees.  They both do the same work and that's rock the crowd if they're good.

MC Lyte is exceptional at rocking the party that rocks the body.  She is what hip-hop is all about.  Battle rhymes are cool but moving the crowd is what it will always be about to me.

The MC Lyte Hip-Hop joints playlist is her claim to fame and G.O.A.T. status.  Let me know if I missed an essential track in the comments below.
