Yes! You're totally correct, it was Doug E. Fresh.

Came in here to talk like him, but I can see it's been taken care of.

Very cool. Not sure why the Kinkos rep was there, but cool nonetheless.

You're free to come and go, or talk like Kurtis Blow, but there's a pair of eyes in back of your head.

Backspin on XM/Sirius. They play all old school, all the time. That station alone is worth the subscription price for me.

If he ruled the world at his age, Blow would only be able to love 2/3rds of the girls. Most, sure, but nowhere near all of them.
 
2011-08-29 02:14:54 PM  
He's free to come and go.

Came for TMBG reference... leaving very satisfied.

Looks like Grandmaster Caz and Doug E. Fresh (certainly not hacks)

oh and 'bust a move' was by Young MC.

Sofa King Smart: oh and 'bust a move' was by Young MC.


Did you see him top dance, then go to the floor and freeze in the helicopter? That was busting a move and has nothing to do with the Young MC song.

I miss old rap, all the new pop stuff is just sad, I was watching all the old shiat I have saved on my youtube favorites and digging through CDs last night, I blame NWA for ruining rap(even though I liked their albums)

An entire generation of hip-hop performers aping guys like Kurtis and Caz and Doug E. is the reason lines like that are considered "hack rap throw-aways" today.
