DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of March 12, 2018

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and
the
Rap Attack DJ’s.

The 90’s brought incredible artists to the rap world. The boom bap sound was created, cultivated and spawned careers of some of rap’s greats — Mobb Deep, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, The Pharcyde and many more. In the late 90’s a trio out of North Carolina formed, calling themselves Little Brother. Little Brother was made up of rhymers Rapper Big Pooh and Phonte, along with super producer 9th Wonder.

After Little Brother split up, all three of these amazing artists went on to have successful solo careers. Phonte, in particular, went on to form a group called
The Foreign Exchange and has dipped into the acting life.

Well, Phonte is back on the rap scene, this time with a solo set for us to enjoy. Just releasing his new album titled
“No News Is Good News” (Foreign Exchange Music), Phonte has blessed us with more of that good music.

Always rhyming over soulful beats and vibes, Phonte is a favorite of this writer. With his smooth delivery and deep mindset, Phonte is a rapper that all lovers of the 90’s boom bap music will enjoy.

We are highlighting one of the smooth tracks off the new album, the song titled
“Sweet You”. I feel as if this song is a love letter to rap music written by Phonte. As a base for this song, Phonte has a very basic pronounced snare drum with a low kick. He slides right on top of it, loving what he does and showing that love to the world.

The album is out now and you can hear the featured track, along with others, on
“The Coast to Coast Hip Hop Mix Show featuring DJ 3rd Degree” every week on www.endangeredspeciez.com.


Go grab it if you can. If you need it, DJ’s, let us know!
We got ya!!!

Til next week . . . Peace!!
DJ 3rd Degree

HIP HOP LEGEND LOVE BUG STARSKI PASSES AT AGE 56

by Jay Quan
Love Bug Starski was right there
at the genesis of the subculture now known as Hip Hop, before it even had a name. With his Grandmother living only 4 blocks away from the Black Spade hotbed known as the Bronx River Projects, he made friends early with architects like
Kool D.J. D and Afrika Bambaataa. Starski was one of the first to D.J. and Emcee simultaneously, and even though he got his start right there at Bronx River, he also carried equipment and records for the late great Pete DJ Jones who played for a more mature crowd. The Grandmaster Flash, who studied Jones and was impressed with Jones’ ability to preview records via the cue button on his Clubman mixer, introduced Love Bug to Jones. Along with Keith Cowboy of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5, Love Bug is said to be one of the originators of the word “Hip Hop”. He rhythmically inserted it into his rhymes and used it as a segue, much in the style of Wonder Mike’s intro on the Sugar Hill Gangs’ “Rappers Delight”. It was Afrika Bambaataa who later used the words Hip Hop to describe the street artform, including Djing, B-Boying (breakdancing), Graffiti and Emceeing (rapping), but it was Keith Cowboy & Love Bug who are credited with the creation of the term.

Sylvia Robinson, who started the first notable rap music label Sugar Hill Records, attended a birthday party at Harlem World for one of her nieces and this was the first time that she heard rap music This is also where she formulated the idea to commit the music to record, as a way to get herself and her stable of record labels (Stang, All Platinum and Turbo) out of debt. It was the Love Bug Starski that she witnessed that night. Master Gee of the Sugar Hill Gang told me that before there was a Sugar Hill Gang, Rappers Delight or even Sugar Hill Records as a name, Starski was the first Emcee to record for Sylvia. He actually rapped to the track that would become “Freedom” by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5.

Lovebug Starsky would eventually record for Fever Records (run by Sal Abbatiello, who owned and operated the infamous Disco Fever nightclub) as well as Tayster and Epic Records.He penned the title track for the soundtrack to the failed 80’s movie “Rappin’”. Lovebug Starski’s biggest hit and signature song is “Live At The Disco Fever” produced by the late great Larry Smith. “You’ve Gotta Believe”, which he recently remade, was a big hit as well. In addition to being an early Dj/Emcee, Starski was also one of the first to deliver an energetic stage show, using the entire stage when he performed.

Love Bug was an extremely private and guarded person, who rarely gave interviews.
Rest In Peace to one of the building blocks of the Hip Hop subculture.
