RAP Attack!!!

Happy 3rd Birthday to Rapsploitation Sessions. They celebrated in style last Thursday with Stig of the Dump and Syntax, Jack Flash and Millionaires by Morning (pictured above). Some of the best nights in Ipswich in the last three years have been thanks to these guys.

Make sure you pencil them in for the 18th of March when Gift of Gab of Blackalicious fame comes to perform for them at The Swan. Get your tickets quick.

In other RAP related news Rapsploitation affiliate Jimmy Green has released another mixtape on his BLOG. His Marvyn Gaye mixtape got me to work on many mornings late last year. So I was super excited to hear that he had done a Beastie Boys Mixtape. If you think that you own all the beasties back catalogue so you don't need to have it mixed together your wrong. Its much more than that - go take a look.

Mash Up

I've never got into the whole online gaming thing. Partly as I don't have the time and maybe it's just too complicated for me. So being a simple kind of guy I was pleased to see that Sega re-released one of my favorite Master System games to download on to my Wii. I used to love playing Alex Kidd and Shinobi on my 8 bit console so when the mashed up Alex Kidd in Shinobi World was released in 1990 I was sold on the title alone.

Speaking of Mash Ups here is one that has had the crowd down at Uprock split. It seems that you get cheers when Biggie starts rapping and boos for the fact that Roots Manuva is not in equal measures. I'll let you decide for yourself.
