Brooklyn, Stand Up!

Big Daddy Kane ripped it, killed it, tore it apart last night on VH1 Hip Hop Honors! What!? It may not have started with Kane but he definitely brought the finesse into the game. Reppin' the hood, where Brooklyn at, baby?

Common, Black Thought,TI...going at it HARD! Man, I almost had a attack...

Kane brought the house down. Had a brother a few years younger than he is jumping off the couch, shouting like I was in the front row. Damn near hurt myself.

Common repped for the South Side (just like on 86th and Avalon back in 88')

T.I. Actually gave "Smooth Operator" a little southern swerve.

Black Thought did it again (see The Tipping Point). If imitation is the best form of flattery, he paid one hell of a compliment. Only Thought could have pulled that rhyme off.

Scoob, Scrap and Kane took me back to 87-88 when they rocked the UIC Pavillion on the near West Side with PE, Ice-T, Just Ice, The Get Fresh Crew, Dana Dane, King Sun, MC Lyte, Audio Two, Stetsasonic, Eric B and Rakim and the Juice Crew. Classic show, still got the ticket stub. The "Famous Flames Bit" should have closed the show.

Glad I TiVo'd it.

Common is just that dude -- like he is by far my favorite rapper right now. But yea it was cool to see Kane out there (i mean i was only seven back when he was really popular in 89') but i still remember him being that dude.
