GREY DAYS


(chorus)
Grey days always be a better place
there is no darkness to turn off back in the days
Grey days and their nuances
there is always a light that will heal the scars
(repeat)

It's another day in the rainy city
The cold in the street comes the clouds
I encourage you to the floor and check again
Apathy faces wet midday
Lumps in the back and there is no one worth a penny
Many In the struggle and it is heard that they are slaves
Others with the most honest open minds
But there are those without shame the sweat of others have stolen
Demons that are loose in the streets
Making yours on gray days do not fail
On the floor and precise delinquent
No time For that only the love triangle
Mental depression has consummated today's plans will be better on a sunny day
The dew in the morning will make me see more clearly what in the dark I do not see and I believe
the days Like this one of plague
I better wrap myself in rap and thus spend what I hate
I wrap myself in my world and so I sink
There is mud everywhere I take every second
Letters in my inks, philosophy I infuse
Spend the day better A gray day that is deep

(chorus)
Grey days always be a better place
there is no darkness to turn off my back in the days
Grey days and their nuances
there is always a light that will heal the scars
(repeat)

My gray days back in the days
In the haze of the dawn
Elsample and its sound what accompanies me
It makes me stronger all that hurts me
I look at the sky accompanied by my ego
Of my little companion the Flava Flava
Stay back back in the track right now
And my problems I leave to the time
That as their words carry the wind
Try, change the day with steez with knowledge, I lie
No tears or complaints that does not flow is my torment
The rest everything comes, I only hear what suits me
Eliminate what hurts
Murder is preferred
Miss people only when it suits them
what's stopping you
The only sure thing is that I die
That few hurt in the stereo like cella dwellas
They will have the memory of this madman who
With hip hop consoles
That with his mind flies ...
Who with his mind dreams
With your mind ...

 


El Legado

 

Full of ink lines and analog versions,
rap does not need any instructions Check
Is my legacy Thousands of generations do not stop diggin in the crates
and away from the hate
Follow your progress no matter the weight
long process like padron to the cheese chico
between the Jazz between Blues, you will learn of hi-hats and drums
Find the classic the basic this magic rhythm will face the tragic
And if fame accompanies you go where you go better if you keep silent you'll feel it if you fail
To make history like Lavoe and Rivera
to sound in Cuba on a sidewalk or in his car in the middle of the road
Open your eyes every day
abuse your daring
destroy what does not serve to be his day to day
be eternal in his speakers
My dream of the owner of the world
and if you feel unique remember to thank for your corduroy and your audience
*Wordup

(scratch)

It is my legacy to give it all without twisting my arm
seeing dreams come true and taking them step by step
Return my yearning for a hearing legend
make my words remain in their retentive and so live
Speak with ownership of the subject
do their accounts and tell their theorems is my Legacy
I put the points on the ies
more seriously respect it and that's how it is
My commitment God did it by putting in front a culture that assures me to be different
I do not put obstacles if the show is my Dream
it is an article that takes more passion than commitment
Is the Essence the succession of the inheritance
some are money first beliefs
It's not hip hop, It is not the music itself, Not wanting to rape or be the best MC is not like this
Is constancy perseverance is the patience that we handle since childhood
fulfill the goals above any dilemma is not a problem because it will always be worth it

Nomaads - The Throwback EP 1992-1995

[R.I.P. Baretta 16th July 2017]

 

 

This 3 three piece from the Bronx has sadly now only one living member, Arsonists' MC Q-Unique. Peep this short interview for more info on this dope early-mid 90's NY project - overseen by ATCQ producer Skeff Anslem. Yeah, he gets props too!!

 

How did you guys meet?

We were a trio, myself, MC Baretta & DJ Mel Ice. Story begins with Mel Ice reaching out to me because he like what I did with C+C music factory, which I thought was weird, but anyway we started building, I was recording solo material at the time but always wanted to have a group. I met Barretta though his brother and my Rock Steady crew fam, Fast Feet.

Where did you record?

We recorded our single "The Ultimate" at D&D studios, the rest was recorded at Platinum Island, Skeff Anselms studio and Groovy Lou's studio.

Did you know anyone in the biz to help setting things up?

I knew a few people but, looking back now, it probably wasnt the right time for anything to happen, even though we experienced some cool moments.


Were any labels interested?

Not really, but then again we didnt really understand the ins & outs of the game to truly play, and because of circumstances way beyond any control, the group never had the chance to grow.

Did you do many shows back then?

No, but the shows that we did were cool because of what they were, 1 was opening for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious 5 while sharing out set with Tony Touch & D-Stroy who would later become my bandmate in the Arsonists, and the other show was Q-tip from a Tribe Called Quest inviting us up during their set to have a live cypher with them at a Zulu jam in the Bronx River projects community center.

So whats the general story of the group?

Myself, Mel Ice & Baretta formed our group, The Nomaads in the streets of the Lower East side in NYC, that's where Mel lived. 1st we started recording demos with a producer that had been working with me named Thomas Owens. Then from that point, Skeff Anselm (A Tribe Called Quest, Brand Nubian, MC Serch and many more) reached out to Mel Ice to build on some music, so we recorded a few demos with him. Through Skeff is where I started to learn about the biz and he connected us with Q-tip who would invite us to the studio while they were recording "Lyrics To Go", I mention that to give an idea of how "sorta" close we were to possibilities. Then Thomas introduced me to Groovy Lou, who would go on to produce our 1st & only single "The Ultimate" released on a very small record label from the Bronx called VIP hip hop. Tragically during that time Mel Ice passed away. That knocked us out for a little, then we decided to push on and recorded music with Groovy Lou. Baretta disappeared into the streets and I did most of the final recordings with Lou. It was at this time that I met Dstroy from the Arsonists and he invited me to build with the crew. Oddly enough, Groovy Lou ended up disappearing as well, and sadly Baretta passed away last month, July 15th 2017.  The Nomaads was one of the roughest patches in my career but there were moments that made it seem like we were doing something good. Overall I miss everyone involved because theyre not just part of my career, they were part of my upbringing.  You have no idea how surreal it is to have Bob/Chopped Herring make this happen, especially at this emotional time with the passing of my former bandmate. Thanks so much for making this happen.

Shawn Lov - Right Here, Right Now 7" EP

 

 

For your listening pleasure we present 4 dope tracks from Shawn Lov's 14th and final album. The Trenton MC has been laying down tracks since 1989 and recorded from 1989-1996 at his father's studio - the very same spot that Courageous Chief, Royal Family, Soul Survivors, and Shakespeare and Last Empire recorded their grails! Being from Trenton you might guess he would've been tight with Tony D [R.I.P.] - which he was. The legendary Poor Righteous Teachers producer mentored Shawn until his untimely passing and produced and featured on a bunch of Shawn's jawns. Included on this project is production from Shawn himself as well as the excellent The Custodian of Records and German beatmaker Raiden. ENJOY YO!!!

 

 

Tracks:

A1 Right Here, Right Now
A2 UNO
B1 Damn Tough

RELEASE #200 CAN BE FOUND IN THE DEEP WATERS....

 

 

So instead of releasing the ATCQ demos we have in the bag, I decided to roll with a super-rare fish-related jawn for the 200th release, just like the 100th and if possible, just like the 300th release will be. This project by Manuel out of Cambridge MA is crazy hard to find. It has numerous fish references and is dope as fuck so had to be Herring #200.  Thanks for all the support fishermen - YOU MAKE THIS ISH HAPPEN!!!

 

Tracks:

A1  Deep waters
B1  Clientele
B2  Luv Luv


Produced by Derek Marazzo.
Written by M. Matos, D. Marazzo

BEFORE GRAVEDIGGAZ THERE WAS....

 

 

So Prince Paul [gotta drop the name] hit me up and said words to the E.F.F.E.C.T. of  "Bob, you need to contact my guy Rich, he has a dope early 90's project you might like.."  

 

Then this project happened....

 

 

 

Here is the straight-lifted Wiki page for Brothers G.R.Y.M. - it's on point [like bathroom tiles yo] >>>

 

 

Brothers  G.R.Y.M.

 

 

The Early years:


The first incarnation of the group was formed around 1989 in Amityville, Long Island, New York, although the family grew up in Wyandanch, Long Island. The family of four brothers (Anthony, Richard, Joel, and Edward) and one sister (Dawne), of which Poetic (Anthony) was the eldest, were born to Trinidadian parents who moved from Trinidad and Tobago in 1971, making their first residence in Queens, New York for a short time, then moving to Wyandanch. John Berkeley (a pastor and a local businessman) and Ela Berkeley (a homemaker, cook-nutritionist, and teacher) were both singers and artistic in general, and they encouraged artistic expression in their five children. The family was well-rounded musically, singing gospel and R&B up to their early teens all around New York, other states, and Canada as "The Berkeley Singers". Anthony (Poetic), Dawne, and Joel (Brainstorm) sang, accompanied by Richard on the drums and Eddie (E-Sharp) on the piano or keyboard.

Poetic began rhyming in his early teens in Wyandanch, and was known by many names, the first of which was MC Supa Flea of the Wyandanch Crew The Phantom Squad, rolling with many other local crews of the era and building a name for himself as a lyrical battle MC. He changed his name to Poetic around 1985, and in 1986 he formed the crew known as Too Poetic, who in 1988-89 released a modestly popular single called: “God Made Me Funky/Poetical Terror”, under the DNA/Tommy Boy Music imprint. The group was composed of his two DJs and childhood friends - DJ Capital K (Fred Cox) and DJ Woody Wood (Randy Woods) – Too Poetic alluded to “Two DJs and One Poet”. The radio personality called DNA had been his manager and the host of the Hank Love & DNA Radio Show on 105.9FM WNWK of hip-hop underground radio fame. The group’s relationship with Tommy Boy Records eventually panned out for various reasons, scrapping the album and making Poetic very displeased, an early casualty of the politics of the music business. Many artists who are not marketed properly have this attitude with their former labels.

While Poetic was just beginning his formal hip hop career in 1987–89, Brainstorm was attending college at the State University of New York at Farmingdale, Long Island, where he was the roommate of Brooklyn’s own Super DJ Richie Rich (who had been in Third Base, Clark Kent’s Supermen, and the movie Juice). The college-based MC-DJ party collective called The Group Home Posse was loosely formed with Brainstorm and DJ Richie Rich to include his childhood friend The DJ-Rapper J.A.T. (Thomas Allen James), DJ Nike, Diamond Jay AKA “Americas Favorite DJ” (EPMD, Gravediggaz, Beyoncé Knowles), and Diamond Shell (Biz Markie’s brother) – all of whom attended Farmingdale University between 1987 and 1989. The university was host to many hip hop artists as visitors for parties and to do shows like Rakim, EPMD, Producer-Super DJ Clark Kent, and Biz Markie.

After Brainstorm finished his college run in 1989, he took time to learn many aspects of the music business and attempted to record a solo demo with Marcy Projects’ Rapper-Producer The JAZ (Big Jaz, mentor of Jay-Z), and was found in many rap circles with Long Island's KMD and other “conscious” MCs of the time, but in 1989 he and Poetic mutually decided to pair up with a hardcore lyrical edge, original word play, and acute metaphors, after many collaborations between them since 1985. Thus, Da Bruthas G.R.Y.M. was born shortly after Too Poetic’s deal with DNA/Tommy Boy had soured. The energy and high chemistry between these true by-blood brothers at the time was, simply put, natural.

 

The 1989–1992 years


In the first Bruthas G.R.Y.M. era (c. 1989–1992), the brothers Poetic (Brother One) and Brainstorm (Brother Two) garnered much respect on the underground hip hop scene of New York – whose “dubs” from underground radio shows were boasting lyrics beyond what was known at the time. Their first official demo featured the underground bangers “Bruthas G.R.Y.M.”, “Circle-Circle-Dot-Dot”, the politically charged “Popcorn” and “Livin’ In Hell (Had To Survive)”, the name-calling “Turtle Soup”, and a neighborhood favorite, the battle rhymes of “GRYMnastics”. The demo featured production mastering by Nate "NATO" Tinsley, their in-house producer Semi-Automatic (Pedro Sims, Mr. Semi, Gravediggaz), and the brothers themselves. After blazing underground radio and live shows around New York City with their lyrics and knowledge of self-based content, they were listed in The Source magazine as the best unsigned rap group of 1989. The crew was then managed by longtime friend Jack Pope (Jack Sprat, Starving Artists Entertainment), who later became the road manager of the Gravediggaz. They acquired many long-term relationships from Poetic’s various musical ties, as well as with Amityville locals like DJ-Cut Monitor Milo of Leaders of the New School (“The Case of the PTA”), Posdonous of De La Soul, and Doo Doo Man Records’ Crew (Prince Paul’s Def Jam Imprint) Resident Aliens.

These cassette tape “dubs” floated around the New York streets in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and their demo eventually made their way to the seasoned musical ear of fellow Amityvillain Prince Paul (Stetsasonic, De La Soul, Gravediggaz) from his association with the local Long Island artists who had met the brothers and saw their raw talent. He was hooked on the brother’s metaphoric flare—all living in Amityville, Long Island, at the time. In 1990 Prince Paul decided to fund and executive produce further demos, finding various other known and up-and-coming producers for the unnamed project, as well as being the tentative DJ for the group, after which they were very close to closing a deal reaching seven figures within a year's time, with bidding by well-known record companies propositioning for their lyrical artistry.

Then the unfortunate happened – being disenfranchised by the politics and games of the music business and life in general, Brainstorm just quit altogether for “personal enlightenment”, before any formal deal could solidify. According to him, “it was not about the money, it was about my personal growth and spiritual maturity”. Poetic understood about Brainstorm’s personal path at that stage in his life, but was silently devastated because they were so close to sealing a major record deal that would have propelled them further into Hip Hop history. Prince Paul was even more puzzled, not fully realizing the reasoning of Brainstorm’s sudden move – but he was still optimistic that a future project would be possible. Their original demo, even today, is still one of Prince Paul’s favorites. It was not until 1992 that Poetic, after Brainstorm quit pursuing a Hip Hop Career in 1991, that it is said that Poetic “fell on hard times”, including a short period of homelessness. Brainstorm would continue to write for leisure and therapeutic reasoning, but never to seriously pursue a music career, moving to Brooklyn New York and later down south to various states; in fact, Brainstorm was so “finished with Hip Hop” that he gave Poetic all of his original rhyme books to use at his own discretion – some lyrics ending up on Gravediggaz projects."
