This DATE in Hip Hop (14 years ago)

On October 29, 1996, Ghostface Killah released his debut album: Ironman. This is one of the earlier Wu-Tang albums and easily one of the best. This album had many guest verses from Wu-Tang members and production by RZA.

My personal favorite tracks: “Daytona 500”, “Soul Controller”, “Fish”, “Winter Warz”, “All That I Got is You”….What is your favorite??

Joe Budden- “Follow My Lead” video

That Mood Muzik 4 is sick. Easily one of the best mixtapes of the year.

Joe Buddens murders this track and if it was a solo track I would have NO problem with it….but Joell also does his thing and since the video is missing his verse….here it is:[audio:http://www.7thboro.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Follow-Your-Lead-Joell-Ortiz.mp3|titles=”Follow Your Lead”- Joell Ortiz verse]

Black Irish Interview


With an album coming very soon…. Here is an interview so you can get to know a little more about this Jersey MC.

Mills: What is meaning of your name: Black Irish?

BI: Black Irish is a term used to describe Irish people with dark features (dark hair, dark eyes)….It’s a term my mother introduced to me because my family is all white Irish people with dark features….I’ve learned that it’s a term that has a lot of meanings to a lot of different people…I know black people that are Irish that use it to describe themselves and it’s also a term used to describe all Irish people when they came to America during the potato famine which was 1847 (Black 47)….Thanks for asking this question because now I can fully explain it…Basically for me it was a term used by my family and I decided it described me best because it’s a part of my heritage and it also describes me because I feel like my music and thoughts can be dark at times and I definitely always felt like a black sheep, a rebel so that’s pretty much it….It stands out and it’s powerful especially in this country when majority of people automatically assume it means I’m Irish and Black but it has a deeper meaning than just race…

Mills: Who are some of your influences? What made you want to be an MC?

BI: Well I started writing when I was 7 years old like poetry and little raps and then I heard “Don’t Sweat The Technique” and “Know The Ledge” by Rakim and that was it for me…I know write from there at age 10 that I wanted to rap. As far as influences I would say Gangstarr, Boot Camp, Wu-Tang, Cypress Hill, House Of Pain and Rage Against The Machine really influenced my music. Those groups created a sound that touched my soul and still does. It’s not only music. It feels like a soundtrack to my life. I’m a fan of all music though. My father put me on to Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin etc. and my mom put me on to more soulful r&b music. So I listen to everything.

Mills: If you can set up a “dream” concert…Who would it include?
