FAT JOE – JEALOUS ONE’S ENVY – 1995

JEALOUS ONE’S ENVY

FAT JOE

1995  // Label ID: 88561-1239-1

Back to 1995

My second favorite Fat Joe album after 'Represent' from 1993. No skipping on this awesome album for me. The great 'Envy' music video featured here...

Music videos of all possible genres played a huge part during my youth. Watching them on Mtv when that was actually still a cool channel and for sure Yo! Mtv Raps got me in a way closer to the artists. Because, not being based in the USA, videos and magazines were in a way my window to the hip hop culture in the United States because back then I hardly had access to the internet and the internet was for sure not what it is nowadays...

Combining my collection together with those awesome music videos is for me the perfect way to put together several art forms being photography, video and not to forget the art of collecting itself...

I’m really lucky and blessed to have had old days to start collecting as a lot of the older albums in my collection are now out of print and when you find them there is a serious price tag hanging on them. All items you encounter on my website and social media come from my personal collection.

Another goal I try to reach via the website is to pay respect to the hip hop pioneers. It’s important to keep everybody aware of who paved the way for today’s artistsThe music industry is such a fast moving train that some people might forget where it all began.

RAP LIFE

TASH

Alkaholiks

Can't go wrong with Tash from Tha Alkaholiks, in my opinion a very underrated rapper. Love his flow and lyrics. Super combo on this particular track with Raekwon!!

Above The Law

Must be one of my favorite groups from the West Coast, always been such a big fan of all their work. Sadly enough I was never able to see them perform live...

NAS – ONE LOVE – 1994

ONE LOVE

Illmatic

One Love is an awesome track from the classic Illmatic album from 1994... Great to see a young Nas starring in this video. Brings back good memories, yes, 1994 was a good year.

Ep.13 / From Smif-N-Wessun to Grand Puba

Archiving some

“From Smif-N-Wessun to Grand Puba”

Adding more of my vinyl to my Discogs page to have a better overview of my collection, thousands of records to go…

After archiving all my CDs and cassettes it’s time for the records. By archiving them I more or less know all the stuff that I have, for sure the LPs, but I must admit that with the 12″s it’s more difficult to remember if I own them already or not as there are so many of them in my collection.

Nothing but classic releases in this episode…
