A wonderfully rhythmic remix of this Cali anthem by the eclectically minded Captain Cumbia. Check out more Cumbia remixes, including reggae and pop classics from the captain on his page. Though the scene is clearly bigger in places like Paris, you can drag your feet to the vibes at Los Angeles’s premier destination for Cumbia, funk, moombahton, hip-hop, salsa and flamenco, Subseulo. Always free, always funky.
I’m sure people there loved “seeing” ‘Pac, just not as much as greedy corporate music suits loving the idea of paying an artist one flat fee, then sending the performance around the world via an e-mail.
In other Coachella news, I heard that this (below) was the track most overplayed by deejays, maybe the world isn’t coming to an end.
When people do the whole “Top 5 rappers of all time” talk, there is pretty much crossover agreement for 3 or 4 of the cats. Think about it, Biggie, Pac, Jigga, maybe Nas, Rakim? Perhaps there may be some other stalwarts, the random Eminem and Busta Rhymes advocation’s. But, the one name that SHOULD enter every single one of those top 5 discussions is Scarface, yes, Scarface, the man who put Southern rap on the motherfucking map. From his early tenure with the Geto Boy’s and Rap-A-Lot acclaim, the early 90′s were the beginning of a great career for the proclaimed King of The South. Many of you may know him simply by his affiliation with other major artists, his post-humus collaboration with Tupac on “Smile” certainly attained mainstream success. Scarface is one of those emcee’s respected within the one demographic that really counts for these guys, other rappers. Whether it’s his gangsta or his ability to spit a genuine 16, Scarface is your proverbial “rappers favorite rapper”. Known for his diversity in features and his longevity in the game, it’s with no surprise and great pleasure that I present to you his newest project, Dopeman Music.
