Belal: What up my peoples and good afternoon. Before i get on my practice grind i just wanted to share something with yall. When i do a interviews about house party and those back in the day great times we had as a real hip hop nation and we wear a nation. Dont know what hip hop is doing now but thats a hole nother topic lol but I tell them this. I grew up in a town called Wyandanch, NY and living there was a house party. Every day we could we partied all over long island all had stories and memories like i had like sitting on the stoop on Wyandanch Day DJ Pleasure, DJ Mechanic DJ Nelson PR & DJ Motor, in Wyandanch park rocking the breakbeats,like sitting on the stoop on S26th st listening to the kaos krew rock at the Hunter's House,our listening to DJ Maniac practice on 29th street while Dr Say is rocking his beatbox better than Grand Master Flash. Now y'all notice i hadn't left my yard yet lol because my mother wasn't haven't it at all god bless her i love you MOM. Now when i was able to leave the block lol now that is when i made my own memories of house parties & what i called the good ol days. Like getting in my first krew The Almighty 5 Mc's our version lol, being at Teddy Oaks house and he djaying and we practicing our rhymes in his house and meeting a young 12 year old lil dude we called Kid splash aka Rakim and realizing right then this dude hear is special. The Almighty G stro, Paul Porter, Mike Mitchell ,Mac, Fred Cox, Scully and me Super B on the mic thats right i started as a MC until i heard Rakim and said this ain't for me lol. Being in Ted's back yard making speaker boxes by hand and putting Realistic speakers in them because we had a battle some wear and strapping that big ass speaker to Mikes car and getting on the Southern State pkw and not giving a damm about the cops stopping us because we had to get to the house party in Bayshure lmao i can't make this stuff up it happen. like going to DJ Doc's house and watching him and Dj Medusa get busy, like going to my first Wyandanch day and watching what a real crew suppose to be like Cool Breez & the love Brothers when Breez brought his system out and he glided to the dj booth and lit a cigarette and started cutting i said OMGGGGG I WANT TO BE A DJ NOWWWWWWWWWWWW lol. Now that is was real swag to me.like when the love brothers use to get ready to rhyme Love brother #1 Snake L LOVE brother # 2 Ron Drew ,Love brother #3 The Kid Wizard Rakim,love brother #4 MC Blade and Canard Brown at the rope as security ready to punch somebody in the face if the passed that rope lol.
