I Think About This Type Of Shit

My girlfriend indulges me way more than she needs to when it comes to my skate-nerdiness. On a slow-paced, noonish jaunt this past Sunday to get coffee, I even went as far as trying to explain the spoken but unwritten rules which apply to skateboard video music. You know what I'm talking about; one can't reuse something that's been in a more or less "legit" video ("legit" being a sliding scale, of course), the 411 exception*, the exception to the 411 exception**, so on and so forth. She was really nice about it.

Spring time always brings a renewed interest in listening to hip-hop, and the past couple of days I've been fixated on Mobb Deep. I'm also always pondering the production of the yet-to-be-started-if-ever Shitheads Vol 8 THE MOVIE, and naturally I then began wondering what songs would be left to use from Mobb Deep's second and third albums. All you nerds out there know that 411 strip mined The Infamous; if there were some easy way to verify it, one could say that they used 10 out of the 16 possible tracks from the album. Hell on Earth wasn't nearly as pillaged, though, as I just remembered, "Extortion" was used, and due to the exception to the 411 exception, cannot be used again. If tags showed on here you know one would be "Serge Chuckreef".

*The 411 exception regards songs used in 411 that can be reused because they were played in an incomplete way, or they were used in a wack section.

**The exception to the 411 exception regards songs used in 411 that cannot be reused because they were used in an exceptional section, for instance, The Pier 7 Spot Check.

You mean Tobias Walker, Ben?

Labias would be such a bummer of a name to have. Could have been some weird combo of Laban Phiedas and Tobias Walker, they were both on invisible.

Those are fighting words, Paulsen.

platinumseagulls said...

Anonymous, did you mean Ain't No Thang was used in 411 or that it would be a banger of a skate video song?

T Ferks, a York grind must be a fakie frontside crook.

One time we all got busted for skating downtown and we all had to go to bookings. Olu gave the name of Tobias Walker and fully ran with it all the way, scared to death his mom would smoke him if she found out he'd gotten arrested for skateboarding. So he goes w it all the way until his social security number didnt match up. The cops made all of us sit there for an extra hour while he got re-booked. Needless to say, I'm not down for Tobias Walker in any way, shape or form.
