Master Jay and Michael Dee – T.S.O.B.

Master Jay and Michael Dee – T.S.O.B. (TSOB Records) 1980. This is hands down one of the best old school rap cuts. From the opening timbale-laden groove onward this is full-on NewYorican boogie for eight plus minutes. The rhymes are perfect…full of “like this and you don’t stops” and “skip to the skop to the skop the skip, skip-bop-du-bop you don’t stops”. T.S.O.B. stands for “The Sounds of Brooklyn” and if this is what Brooklyn sounded like in 1980 then the rest of us were in the wrong location. This is something you want to break out at a party. It separates the wheat from the chaff.

    RAP/hip hop is the punk/diy of the innercity
    ROCK N ROLL doesnt click with everyone
    rap still has the honest originality that it used to have while at the same time being completely sold out to corporate america,just like punk
