Since the month of February is almost in the record books and I haven't posted a volume of WYDU's Classics for it, I figured I better sneak this in while I can. Like most of the WYDU Classics, there is really no theme other than some tracks that I've been diggin lately or have been wanting to hear again.

Seems like I was on a remix kick this month, although it wasn't really intentional. Phat Kat, who is among my favorites from the Detroit area, comes correct on "Dedication To The Suckers", an old Audio Galaxy favorite of mine from back in the day. It's also an early Jay Dee aka J Dilla beat. A Dope remix can be found for "Sobb Story", one of my favorite tracks from LONS first album and the remix is just as good and if not better. There are also dope remixes of "Catch A Bad One" from Del, "That's When You Lost" from Souls. Heiro always had remixes on their singles and they were always up to par. Former Source "Unsigned Hype" alum, Legion of Dume drop an ill track on "Sons of Sam". Too bad that group didn't take off, although if I remember right, Darc Mind who dropped a album a year or two ago was part of that crew. A soulful, rag-time version of "Ain't Got No Class" shows up from Da Lench Mob. I was a BIG fan of Lench Mob's first album, simply from the production. This track wouldn't have fit on there, but it's still pretty nice. There are some obscure tracks floating around on this as well. That Mood Swingaz track, "The Blessed", is a great track. It's nothing new, but the beat and the MC all fit together so well.

The remix is better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ge3J2kerHQ

If there is a worse cover than this ill be suprised. I quite like the Brother Ali cover.

That is pretty awesome, the dog and the watch are my two favourite bits.

I like how a lot of Hip Hop covers of recent years kinda look like naff 80s Thrash records. The only thing missing from that one above is a barrel of toxic waste spilling out in the background.

I take it everyone has seen the Louis Theroux documentary about 6th rate Dirty South rap music? There's an amazing bit where he visits Pen & Pixel's studio. Check it out:

Your face, as in the guy holding the CD, is reflected on a bullet being fired out of one of the covers, into the camera lens. Fucking genius.

I suppose a few of our more pop-inclined posters will have heard of Asher Roth? He's like some up & coming white rapper with a decidedly pop music slant. I just heard this tune for the first time:

It's pretty bad... but I've listened to it 4 times back to back. Mad infectious! This is my new guilty pleasure. Good pop music indeed. But awful. But good.

EDIT: Are those the drums from 'Impeach The President?' That might explain part of the appeal.
