This has to be hands down, my favorite of all Wake Up Show Anthems ever recorded. Check the lineup: NaS, Organized Konfusion, Ras Kass, DredScott, Shyheim, unknown???, Saafir and Lauryn Hill on the hook. This was 92.3 The Beat and LA’s anthem at the time. Despite being all the way out in Hawaii, I was always tuned in to the Wake Up Show with Sway & King Tech which, believe it or not, we actually caught out here. At one point, I had damn near the entire collection of the Wake Up Show freestyle compilations. Moms unfortunately threw them shits out. I’ve also included a freestyle from Hawaii’s own Tassho Pearce who was invited up to the Wake Up Show a few times. This particular freestyle is from a cipher that featured Pharoahe Monch and Mykill Myers.
“Put cocaine on my tongue // You got crack now rock on…”
…is being released on the internet for a free download! But I’m sure most of you already knew that. But what you didn’t know; is that Crooked I is readying a project, entirely produced by King Tech, entitled Group Therapy. If you enjoyed If You Ever Hear Me, you’ll love this. I spoke with Crook earlier today and you can check more information about the project that I just put up at the plantation…
Episode 4 of Kanye’s time on the World Famous Wake Up Show, he’s joined by Murdoc (100k Battle winner) and Ahmad to spit some bars. Speaking of the 100k Battle, the record Crooked I dropped to inspire the emcees, is still one of my favorite joints by dude.
Part three of Kanye’s time on the Wake Up Show hit the internets a few days ago. Ye & Sway talk about Jay-Z (from being the best rapper ever, the Jockin’ Jay-Z sample, Blueprint 3, etc), 50 Cent and more. And since I was sleeping… part two is above (while three is after the jump). Fuck it… late!
Fresh off their time on the Wake Up Show, Keelay & Zaire link up with Supastition for an official intro joint, that’s being played every other week on the show. Shouts to DJ Revolution on the cuts. And don’t forget about their upcoming LP, Ridin’ High, which drops March 10th!
Help the man coming up after you. Or don’t throw up no more W’s.
You know you’ve put in work if you can get on the Wake Up Show and just talk. Pretty much. Crook sits down with Sway to chop it up about a variety of topics. smh @ dude dropping $330 on the table and expecting a battle.
I don’t got enough rappers to compete with,
The way I float on the instrumental, when I’m spittin, I’m gettin sea sick
Here goes a joint from Crooked I that he recorded for the world famous Wake Up Show. Those on the West Coast will be hearing this as the introduction to the show that airs every Sunday at 10pm. Get em!
