DJ A-Dog x Living Proof Mag presents: Tru Skool (Various Artists)

Friends For A-Dog I replied to a comment that my dude Luis Calderin posted as #oldmanning on the hip hop nowadays... i replied w/plenty to say since i feel the same way. Wanted 2 share what i classify as hip hop and what we grew up on,as well as some of the groups since i feel i live in this time still. Big shouts to NG at [ 2 one 5 ] Creative & Living Proof for putting this out together to show example of what we feel True Skool is. Mixed & blended by DJ A-D0G. Here's my reply to his comment,and i have some other throwback mixes to share also...stay tuned: *hip hop opinion* Luis Calderin I can agree...that's why when I DJ I play music. They should call what I think u r speaking of rap or come up with a new name since it is a new sound. Hop hop should be the same,and can't be changed...the days of Krs-1,A Tribe called quest,De la soul,Run dmc,Public enemy etc....the list of mine goes on that I can name and file as hip hop in my definition. Lyrics that I could relate to even tho I wasn't from NYC or some big city...we might just need to come up with a new genre name for what they call hip hop...the new 'music' has nothing motivating to talk about,undanceable beats,lower tempos that u could almost speak over and not consider rhyming...big budgets to make the music tho,as well as backing by sponsors! I miss the sampling of rare beats and grooves which made me learn about funk and soul groups that I have never heard of...I could go on and on,maybe we music seminar so we can all learn old and new. Way to open up the same but great topic! #oldmanning Peace A_
