TUESDAYS WITH HIP HOP, PART 4 – Dirty Raps and Blowfly

tuesday

You’ve heard dirty hip hop before – 2 Live Crew, Ice-T, Too Short, Three 6 Mafia, but do you know about Blowfly from Miami? This guy used to write number one hits for R&B and soul singers back in the 60s and 70s, but also released some X-rated tracks with titles like “That’s What Your Pussy’s Made For,” “Too Fat To Fuck,” and the nine-minute “Beggin’ For Pussy Medley.” The groove on “More Than One Pussy” really stands out.

Lookin like a pro wrestler, he performs in a superhero suit, blue mask, and cape to this day, and the website for the documentary “The Weird World of Blowfly” claims he wrote the first rap song ever, back in 1965. If so, that far predates Gil Scott Heron’s 1974 “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” and Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight.”

I just discovered Blowfly and his 1984 LP “X-rated” in a folder of 80s hip-hop a homie recently passed me. Funny tunes with a really 80s vibe. Something like an X-rated Weird Al meets the Egyptian Lover and Dam Funk. He even raps over other popular beats from the time, like Lional Richie’s “Hello” and Cybotron’s “Clear” on “Electronic Pussy Sucker.”

Love the intro, “You know I saw this fine bitch the other day, in a store that sells computers and video games…”

Without Blowfly, we may not have other classic dirty rap like 2 Live Crew, also from Miami, who were arrested for performing songs from their 1989 album “As Nasty As They Wanna Be” after a federal court judge ruled the album obscene. Music shop employees were even arrested for selling the CD until the obscenity ruling was overturned by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in 1992. Funny how the courts in Florida worked then, but not during the 2000 election recount with Bush vs. Gore.

New rappers like Tyga, YG, and 2 Chainz just sound vulgar when they rap about the P because they lack the weirdness and creativity that made Blowfly and 2 Live Crew so appealing. That’s why I’d rather listen to Lil B than the aforementioned rappers, because he’s a weird character who doesn’t seem so serious, e.g. “I popped three pills I look like Harry Potter…I’m finna eat that pussy.”  Really wanna know if The Based God knows about Blowfly, the OG nasty rapper.

Lil B White Flame

There’s two possibilities for why I like Lil B and his new mixtape “White Flame” – 1) I’m getting dumber, and years of DJing have harmed my ears, or 2) Lil B is actually really good [sometimes], and is better at entertaining than rapping.

The number one question I get from my friends when I introduce them to Lil B’s music is “does he write?” Really not sure, but what’s clear is that Lil B has issues, or is great at pretending like he does. He often sounds paranoid, delusional, and grandiose, but he’s about to release his second “Illusions of Grandeur” mixtape so perhaps he’s really just fucking around.  Better crazy than boring – just look at Charlie Sheen. People love to see celebrities with problems, and there hasn’t been a borderline-mainstream rapper as visibly eccentric as Lil B since….?

We’re talking about a rapper who received death threats for naming his album “I’m Gay,” refers to himself as a “pretty bitch,” and tweeted to Kanye West “If Kanye West refuses to work with me I’m going to fuck him in the ass next time I see him.”

And remember that Lil B is 22. He’s part of the generation that has always had the internet. The generation that had Adult Swim in high school. I hope that no one assassinates him and that he keeps putting out mixtapes like “White Flame” for a long time. TYBG -

fuck i’m still awake it’s 7am

been drawing all night to meet the January press deadline..hollered at boi ronald to hit me off with some double cheese and coffee bout midnight plus my colored pencil game is so on point. tried to listen to BasedGodVelli but i’m really starting to suspect Lil B is schizophrenic. He’s the L. Ron Hubbard of rap.

@Kinko’s – I expected more. So much more..why would you make a 24/7 store but then close it randomly on some nights? unacceptable. how would Juicy J handle that?

Fucking love this mixtape, I can’t wait to be home in two weeks and drive around the countryside listening to rap music.

World AIDS Day

People love to fuck in Shanghai. Sometimes people act like condoms aren’t necessary and that’s fucked up. Think about all the people who come in and out of Shanghai everyday on planes and trains from who the fuck knows where, and with what history. Think of the bros who fuck hookers in Cambodia then come back here and sleep with their girlfriends like it’s all good. And the girls who let random dudes bust in them cause they’re on the pill or plan on taking some day-after meds. And all the mutual friends and how interconnected this place is.

You prlly know someone in Shanghai with an STD, even if they don’t know it. AIDS is on the rise in Shanghai, where it’s on the decline in other parts of the world. Not just AIDS but Hep-C and lots of other viruses that will kill you or at the least make it so you can’t have sex anymore or have to take lots of medicine every day.

I’m lucky that my mom worked at an AIDS clinic when I was four or five. I met a lot of her patients and saw them die, and my parents told me why. A lot of office ladies have bowls of choco on their desk – my mom always had a big bowl of condoms. Not everyone’s lucky enough to go to a school with good sex-ed.

So use condoms, and don’t sleep with people who don’t think they’re important cause they prlly do that on the reg. It’s like Snoop Doggy Dogg said, “ain’t no pussy good enough to get burnt while I’m up in it.” I would love to quote a female rapper who said something similar but nothing comes to mind..

Here’s some songs about STDs.

thoughts on lil b

super, super late pass on this but i’ve been digging into the lil b catalog lately. if you don’t know, lil b is “the based god.” Based apparently means thinking on at least 36 different levels and not giving a fuck.

lil b first came up back in 2006 with that song “Vans,” but now he’s on some other shit. dude releases 600+ song mixtapes. a lot of it is garbage, but some is genuinely gold. he’s helped in no small way by his producers, including Clams Casino (one of the best in the game right now).

although he sounds like it on some (many) of his songs, i don’t think lil b is retarded. think he’s a smart, funny dude with no quality control, probably due to narcissism mixed with a quantity > quality in the age of the interwebs philosophy. if you dig through his mixtapes (seriously so many) you’ll probably find something you like.

for me, right now, Wonton Soup is the track. he claims he has to make “ignorant” songs like this sometimes to entice peeps to explore deeper in his catalog. it’s a brilliant satire of the past..i’ll say fifteen years of rap. classic lines like:

“please bitch, you hatas ain’t got no felonies/young base god flexed ten armed robberies/young base god been breakin and entering/young base god ride hot when you bought it.”

He’s not serious, so don’t take it seriously and appreciate it for what it is. “Wonton Soup” makes as much sense as “Laffy Taffy” or “My Dougie,” but way funnier. He got death threats for naming his latest album “I’m Gay” (he’s not).
