10 Videos of Ol’ Dirty Bastard You Must See. (via @egotripland)
On this the 8-year anniversary of the great Ol’ Dirty Bastard‘s passing, we remember one of hip-hop’s true originals with some help from our friends at UpNorthTrips/@upnorthtrips. Here, cherry-picked off the Interwebz for your viewing pleasure, are 10 vintage video clips – classic interviews, TV performances, reality show guest spots, and other obscurities – of the one-man army Ason Unique (a/k/a Dirt McGirt, a/k/a Big Baby Jesus, a/k/a Mr. Russell Jones) being the human tornado he was for the cameras. Watch them and you too will agree – the Dirty version of anything was always more compelling. ODB, R.I.P. [READ MORE]

10 Videos of Dr. Dre circa The Chronic That You Must See. (via @egotripland)
So much has been written about The Chronic that trying to say something new about it ain’t easy. Perhaps the most significant thing about Dr. Dre‘s first “solo” album after the break-up of N.W.A — aside from the outstanding music — is its impact. The LP turned then new jack Snoop Doggy Dogg into a star and introduced talent like the Dogg Pound and Lady of Rage. Dis records had existed long before, of course, but the beef with Eazy-E addressed on songs like “Fuck Wit’ Dre Day” was probably the first rap battle people outside of hip-hop paid attention to due to the video’s popularity on MTV. The Chronic took Cypress Hill’s endorsement of marijuana one step further into the square households of America, schooling herbs on slang for weed they’d never heard before. (And it probably turned a few herbs into wannabe gangstas, too.)
One of the most impressive achievements of The Chronic was that it established Death Row Records (which Dre had hoped would be become the next Motown) as a major creative and financial force almost overnight. That the label crumbled, however, is not why we’re here. Nope. Tomorrow – Saturday, December 15th – The Chronic turns 20-years-old and e’rybody’s celebrating. Here we present – with a major assist from our friends at UpNorthTrips [READ MORE]
