Napoleon Da Legend - Mass Incarceration



By Ralo

The urban lifestyle has always been a hive of activity in the world of hip-hop culture. First there is the visually arresting images of graffiti, then there is the hypnotic rotation of turntables. You can't forget the acrobatic display of b-boys or the oral expression of MCing.

The lyricist or the MC has long been the center of attention in the sub-culture of underground hip-hop. There are often many questions about who is the best lyricist or who can beat who in a battle. The topic of discussion also centers on who's new record is wack, and who's new record is heat, or which newcomers sound good and shows promise.  Lyrics, delivery and production all play key roles in judging the quality of underground hip-hop. Noncommercial rap has always had more poetic value than its corporate under produced counterpart.


This week we focus our attention on one of the main issues plaguing the black community, mass incarceration. After President Linden Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act and The Civil Rights Act in the late 1960's, we have seen the explosion of black male incarceration. This is what author Michelle Alexander refers to as the New Jim Crow in her book of the same title. Most black men that are currently in prison are there for non-violent offenses. Over the years mandatory minimum sentencing laws have herded an exceptional amount of black men into prison slavery. Most of the nations prisons are privately owned for profit businesses that lock up black men for no other reason but to make money. Lots of these prisons are publicly traded on The Stock Market. This is 21st century slavery.

Napoleon Da Legend tackles this issue in his very timely "Mass Incarceration".

Today, nearly two months after Sean P's passing, Statik Selektah releases “Admiral Greets General.” The song is a straightforward bar-busting moment over a rich Soul loop. With an especially gravelly voice, this is one of Sean’s presumed final recordings—and like so many others, he gave it the most:

Doug E. Fresh And Slick Rick "The Show" 30 Years Later


As a teenager my weekend ritual was tuning in to the commercial R&B stations in New York to hear the latest in independent Rap Music. We only got Rap Music for a few hours on the weekend on the radio in New York back then. You had to be in front of the radio ready to "tape" the newest independent releases. I was the person that would fall asleep with headphones on in the bed with the boom box trying to record the world premiers.

In 1985 stand-outs in the independent Rap scene included Brooklyns' Bad Boys Featuring K love on Starlite Records, which featured a replayed parody of The Inspector Gadget theme from the animated television series- produced For Bad Boys by Tony D. The Bad Boys single came complete with a music video (rare for 1985) directed by New Yorks' Dr Dre of Yo MTV Raps fame. This single a video played a key role in the development of the music video in Rap Music. Turn It Up by Kool Moe Dee on Sugarhill Records was also in heavy rotation on the weekend mix shows. This was his first single as a solo act and helped launch his career as a solo artist.

One hot August night in 1985 I was in front of the radio hoping to record something new for my most recent pause-edit mixtape. I heard the intro to The Show by Doug E. Fresh And Slick Rick and was completely blown away. Doug E. Fresh had previous hits with records like The Original Human Beat Box on Vintertainment Records, but this was like nothing I had heard up to that point.

The record starts with Chill Will and Barry B scratching "Oh my god" from The Cold Crush Brothers Punk Rock Rap and "Fresh" from Change The Beat by Beside. The track was produced by a 15 year old Teddy Reilly and featured the shaker sound that was used heavily in subsequent tracks produced by Herby Love Bug. The track also featured the same Inspector Gadget theme used by Bad Boys months earlier.

Needless to say The Show is revered as one of the most outstanding classics in the history of recorded Rap Music. Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick still continue to travel and perform, and audiences still can't seem to get enough of The Show.
