my definition of a boombastic night of vintage hip hop

a bit of an unconventional entry today following my brief vacation. last night i had every intention of uploading a song and writing an entry for today. instead i got sucked into watching old music videos on YouTube. i subscribed to the videos of someone using the moniker of ShockG, a reference to the frontman of Digital Underground, who has posted over two-hundred music videos of eighties hip-hop, early ninties alternative hip hop and even some old soul acts. there's really not a bad one in the bunch and you could get lost in there for hours. here's a few choice select videos:

Dream Warriors - My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style
Kwame - The Rhythm
GangStarr - Who's Gonna Take the Weight
K-Solo - Your Moms in My Business
Dana Dane - This Be a Def Beat
De La Soul - Ring Ring Ring
Kool Moe Dee - I Go to Work
Del the Funkee Homosapien - Mistadobolina
Digital Underground - Doowutchyalike
Tribe Called Quest - Bonita Applebum

feel free to use the comments to share some of your favorite findings in the bunch.
