I’m a sucker for back-in-the-day East Coast hip-hop, and Audio Two’s “Top Billin'” will always be one of my favorites … the rhymes are equal parts catchy and kitschy, and that beat is infectious. (You may recognize it from Grand Theft Auto IV or from 50’s “I Get Money” single … or from one of a million other tracks, since “Top Billin'” gets sampled like crazy.) The A-side of this 12″, “Make It Funky,” ain’t so bad itself. Perfect for knocking the Sunday mornin’ sleep out your eyes and getting yourself ready for a Mavs/Celts tilt at noon, a relatively sparse NCAA hoop slate and … hmmm … not much else. Yeesh.
I guess you could just say screw it and listen to Milk Dee smash the beat one more time. That’s a pretty solid option anyway, but it turns golden when staring straight into the maw of motocross and figure skating. MC am I, people call me Milk / When I’m bustin’ up a party, I feel no guilt / Gizmo’s cuttin’ up for the / Suckas that’s down with me! All of us suckas are down with you, Milk. 4 real.
Have a great Sunday, gang. Back tomorrow with more tomfoolery.
