#GJH25 – Darren’s Alternative Hip-Hop Top Ten

To counter the indulgence currently being wacked out by my drawn out saga of releasing my top 25, I asked a few others to contribute their top ten. Darren flips the script not only in his choices, but also in our usual blogging techniques by offering a great selection brilliantly streamlined in comment.

10. 6 Feet Deep – Gravediggaz.
Perhaps the most surreal concept album ever conceived in Hip-Hop, but also one also producing some of it’s most highly creative beats.

9. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy – Kanye West.
Is he a member of The Illuminati? Why is the Album Art bizarre? Elton John’s on the record..!! Despite all these interesting questions, it will be remembered as one of the greatest artistic works in Hip-Hop history.

Kanye West POWER by Marco Brambilla (Director’s Cut) from ARTJAIL on Vimeo.

8. Illmatic – Nas.
Nas’ first ever long player has, due to the total brilliance, become something of a curse for his career as with each proceeding album leaves aficionados disappointed. Sort of how Wayne Rooney has never topped his début for Manchester United.

7. Midnight Marauders – A Tribe Called Quest.
Deliberately recorded from Midnight till 6am, the result was a unique sounding album that captures the collective at their zenith. Wide awake when the majority of their counterparts where sleeping.

6. When Disaster Strikes… – Busta Rhymes.
This album can only be described as perfect Saturday Night Warm-Up Music, ready for before the adventures begin. It’s just fun; something that’s sadly in very short supply within the genre & the lifestyle.

5. Doggystyle – Snoop Doggy Dogg.
Long before the Adidas contract & numerous other endorsements that he now promotes turned him into a brand, Snoop Doggy Dogg was a youngster with the aim of being the No. 1 on the Mic. When this came out he most definitely was.

4. Cypress Hill – Cypress Hill.
This entire album was in-fact intended to be the demo version, yet it was decided that it’s rough gritty sound perfectly suited the lyrics. At times, the imperfections are better.

3. Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) – Wu-Tang Clan.
It simply should work having that many members then including tooo many samples from badly dubbed 1970’s English Kung-Fu Films.
An Aggressive but also silly combination, yet one executed perfectly.

2. Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde – The Pharcyde.
A group of four very young 20yr old stoners from Southern California that have concerns about women, marriage & weed make a masterpiece without realizing. It doesn’t matter it you’re from Los Angeles or Leeds, you’ll instantly connect with this album as it’s about the Human Experience.

1. The Score – The Fugees.
Inspired by the later work on Bob Marley, it impressed both the ghettos & the suburbs across the globe.
According to urban-myth, for some reason the album directed connected with the Chinese Population making it currently the most bootlegged album in history.

Arcade Fire, Spike Jonze & Martial Law in America?

Arcade Fire, Spike Jonze & Martial Law in America?

The majority of you might be surprised that something as powerful as this, created by award-winners in Popular Music & Cinema is hardly known about – yet this is sadly the case. What needs to get your attention is why the majority of you are interacting with this for the first time?

Shouldn’t the subject matter of the above Short Film got headlines especially from the Music Press along with that once cool but these days totally self-righteous British Newspaper The Guardian.

Before, some of you think that it might have been caused by a lack of promotion from Arcade Fire’s representatives, I’ll take the alternative view that’s it was way toooo close to actual reality..!

It must be remembered that the United States of America in terms of land-mass is more like that of a continent, therefore it will always contain varying different views on socio-economics based on geographic location. Residents living in San Diego (California) will be totally different from those living in Cleveland (Ohio).

Whilst in the UK, we have differences this is generally on a North vs. South basis, strangely summed up in the current Television Classic – Game of Thrones, yet due to a considerably smaller land mass we tend as a people to be on a more harmoniums wave-length.

Before, American readers take umbrage with my views; the United Kingdom is far from it’s title as clearly seen by the social tension of wide spread riots of 2011 especially in the Capital City – London.

Who exactly are Arcade Fire?

The common belief due to the Music Press is that the entire band are from Montreal, Canada hence their unique acclaimed style of music. Yet, if you regularly read my articles one theme that keeps returning is the role that the main-stream media play is actual deception at times arranged with each other.

Going on a tangent as these articles tend to do, Sky News along with it’s sister station Sky Sports News reported the below yet the BBC have ignored this therefore giving the false impression that the Liverpool vs. Manchester United Premier League game of Sunday 23rd September 2012 had absolutely NO trouble.

Sometimes I wonder why continue keep paying my BBC License Fee…

If you’ve guessed Arcade Fire aren’t totally French Canadian & you’d be correct. The band is the Wu-Tang of Indie Music with 7 Members with 3 driving the artistic direction of the collective these being:

The Butler Brothers & Régine Chassagne.

Chassagne is married to lead singer of the band Win Butler & is most interesting as she has a direct link to being strongly against Fascist Dictatorships due to her immediate families experiences of living in the Haiti controlled by C.I.A Operative – François “Papa Doc” Duvalier.

This then leads to concerns around the manner America is currently heading as both Butler Brothers (Win & William) are America Citizens born.

It’s not a far-out theory that majority or entire Western Entertainment Industry is controlled at Boardroom levels by those whom aren’t fans of equal opportunity for all humanity. Therefore, a potential reason why the following might have occurred:

Gigaom.com – Arcade Fire & Spike Jonze short fim gets geo-blocked

Another interesting fact, was the Band deciding on the respected Berlin Film Festival to be the place to premier the short film where 78yrs earlier, a short Fascist Dictator became supreme leader of Germany & we know the rest.

Have a watch of the Press Conference in which nobody directly including band members addresses the subject of the Film depicting America being under Martial Law:

2011 Berlin Film Festival – Arcade Fire Press Conference

Arcade Fire have recently contributed to the soundtrack to the hit-film ‘The Hunger Games’. The Film being about a future North America under a Fascist Dictatorship.

Who exactly is Spike Jonze?

You might have seen these Motion Pictures Directed by Mr. Jonze:

Being John Malkovich‘.

Adaptation‘.

Where the Wild Things Are‘.

He’s also know to have Directed some rather special Music Video’s such as…

Current Hollywood Royalty connects directly with a Band selling vast Units & Sell-Out Tours but ‘radio silence’ over their project.

Top names in the Entertainment Industry often mingle with those whom are ‘The Elites’ as normal people aren’t allowed in the V.I.P Section.

So, it’s highly possible members of the Arcade Fire have been privy to some worrying information as Grey Goose Vodka does have powerful effects on the human psyche.

This might be October’s article but don’t worry, I’ll be delivering something much more terrifying on Halloween (Wednesday 31st)..!!

The final word on this article should go to Leader of Arcade Fire – Win Butler from an Interview with Billboard (major league American Entertainment Magazine). Ask yourself does he know something those in ‘The Club’ have possibly planned & / or is giving us the ordinary 99% of humanity a clever warning.

…that 30 years from now, when a computer virus crashed all the computers, and people have to look at DVDs to see what life was like in the early 2000s, there is some record of what we were thinking visually.”
