The ONLY Rap I can handle

Rap.......Hip/Hop......Crunk........Junk.....whatever you want to call it, it is a form of "music" that I have been waiting to go away now for over 30 years. Funny how time has softened me on the early years of Rap and I now have a bit of a soft spot for the "old school" late 70's brand, but that just means I don't want to stab someone when I hear "Rapper's Delight" and I can appreciate the campiness of that period in history. Don't get me started on anything recorded after 1988 though, because all that stuff makes me want to gouge my ears out. However, there is SOME rap I DO like. And here are some examples of the greatest "rappers" in the history of Hip/Hop.
OK. Bill Cosby might not be considered a "rapper" per Se, but between eating Jello Pudding Pops and berating Eddie Murphy, he put out this lovely nugget of early Hip/Hop. Of coarse, at the time he thought he was making a parody of Disco, but just listen to his phat rhymes. Pure Poetry




You can keep your Eminems, your Vanilla Ice's. Your Cypress Hills and your Wayne Brady's. To ME, the greatest white rapper that ever LIVED was Rodney Dangerfield. He had MAD street cred and killer duds (just look at the album cover). And his one and only hip/hop anthem still resonates with me. No Respect, No Respect


So you say you WANT to hear some cutting edge hip/hop, but you also want to hear a bad impression of Ronald Reagan? Well....have I got a 12-inch for YOU!
I don't know who the Doonesbury Break Crew is, but I DO know they thankfully only recorded this 1984 single and then promptly vanished.


And I save the best for last. Two powerhouses in comedy. (OK, ONE powerhouse and....uh....a small shed) came together to create THIS, the most annoying 5 minutes of your life. And, just because I like torture. I'm going to give you all 3 12-inch re-mixes of THIS.

The word "animal" comes from the Latin word animalis, meaning "having breath". In everyday colloquial usage, the word usually refers to non-human animals. Sometimes, only closer relatives of humans such as mammals and other vertebrates are meant in colloquial use.The biological definition of the word refers to all members of the kingdom Animalia, encompassing creatures as diverse as sponges, jellyfish, insects and humans.
