We are the ultimate, rock, rockin it
Once again, the Roots brought that raw, live stage show out West and straight tore shit up. And closed shit with Scratch on the ones & twos rockin "Simon Says", yeah Black Thought said it, "Rub on your titties"
And they had Ras Kass do a short opening set as an added bonus. (Along with a crew from the Northwest y'all should check out called Ol Dominion, you can listen to thier isht at mp3.com) Ras was fucking unbelievable, that cat is as ill as I heard. By far the best $14.50 I have ever spent on a show.
Best line of the night, Ras Kass
"Racially, I am the antonym of Eminem,
Hi, my name is
Blowed out, like Kurt Cobains brains"
and then he said a bunch of more dope shit but my head was still spinning of the antonym of eminem, and Ras flowed into
"So I told the pig in pig latin
(shit that i didn't quite catch because my pig latin isnt to good)" I think he said something like stick it up your ass, but I am not sure.
The show was in an older building and the floor has a bit of spring in it, so the record kept skipping and fucking up "Ghetto Fabulous" so Ras had to spit freestyles instead. Which was cool with me.
In summation, the Roots redeemed themselves.
No doubt on the Livesavas, but I don't think that they are playin much right now. One of the cats is touring with Blackalicious. Which is cool for him, it just sucks for Portland Hip Hop, the Livesavas are one of the few groups in this city that aren't stuck on some wack ass gangsta shit.
And say hello to 13th street for me, I haven't had any Green from Eugene in a while.
no doubt highme.....Ol Diminion is from my city, Eugene in Oregon, every hip-hop show they've thrown here that ive went to (DJ Shadow W/ Cut Chemist, Kool Kieth, Blackalicious, Latryx, Aceyalone, Freestyle Fellowship, etc,etc,etc) Ol Dominion has opened up for em, and these other cats named The Lifesavas...........
I got all of Ol D's shit on wax, cop it if you can people...
Pieces (After Im Done.... Spittin)
No doubt on the beer comment highme. I can't count the times I've pissed into a bottle, recapped it, put it into the fridge and let the beer thieves steal it and swig it.
Steal my beer and you may get a surprise.
aint no other show like it, straight different everytime. the only thing that could stop them cats is if they have heart attacks. wordlife
Ras doesn't know what the word "antonym" means.
Oh, and I drank a Heinekin for all you Drunken Flunkies out there. Even though I live in the land of hops and believe that any beer that looks like piss, could well be piss.
