"Now watch me rip the tat from your arm
Kick you in the groin, stick you for your Vanguard award
In front of your mom your 1st, 2nd and 3rd born
Make your wife get on the horn call Minister Farrakhan
So he could persuade me to squash it
I said nah he started it
He forgot what a hardcore artist is
A hardcore artist is a dangerous man, such as myself
trained to run 20 miles in soft sand
On or off land
Programmed to kick hundreds of bars off hand
from a lost and forgotten land"

I don't think it's really necessary to give a bio of James Brown, the most important and influential R&B artist of the 20th century, to open this week's edition of WSIB. If you don't know about the "Godfather of Soul" stop what you're doing, go pick up a book about him (physically or digitally), and read that s--t cover to cover. Aight. We good? Let's continue. This week's funky ass motherf---in' sample comes from the album "Black Caesar," which is the soundtrack to the movie of the same name, which itself is a certified classic. He and The J.B.'s were the only ones who could have done it justice.
For any track this good having to choose between only two songs just won't do. We need a FUNKY FOURSOME to equal the funky force of Mr. Brown. Here are the candidates I've chosen that sample "The Boss" - be sure to listen to each one before you place your vote.
1.) Ice-T - "You Played Yourself"
2.) Lord Finesse - "Bad Mutha"
3.) Nas - "Get Down"
4.) Pete Rock - "The Boss"
And now feel free to vote for who rocked with James the best!
Video: Deal The Villain x Flying Lotus - "Autumn Fables"
Dub: With the temperature dropping dramatically in the northern hemisphere over the past couple weeks as autumn transitions into winter, NJ's Deal The Villain attempts to raise the mercury levels through his newest release "Autumn Fables" which visualizes one of the standout cuts from his recent studio EP "Beards, Beats & Kicks" over a seriously smooth Flying Lotus beat -something for the purest and an appropriate selection given the current season.
RRP: Produced by Drumma Boy (Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Future) and a host of other extraordinary producers, the hypnotic trap beats gives way to a signature melodic chant from Greatness. A seamless fusion of soaring vocals and irresistible production, Bloody Summer represents a natural progression from the gold-certified 2016 breakout smash “Moolah” that turned the artist into a household name.
"The first time I heard him, I knew he was going to be big," adds Cash Money Records Co-Founder and Chief Executive Bryan "Birdman" Williams aka Baby. "He’s got a grasp on melody that few artists have. It’s the sound of the future."
HSR: Touch just released his new album, Journey to the West, on Hand’Solo Records on Friday, November 10, and to promote the album he released an in-studio promo video of opening track “The Seventeenth Branch”.
Chris: Jon Glass is finishing the last few U.S. dates doing the music for Token's first headlining tour while M-Dot also recently returned home from his own month long (Oct.) European Tour! The two have collaborated consistently in the past generating buzz while working on M-Dot's "Ego & the Enemy" album ( "Foreign" | "Give It To Me" | "Meow Mix"); one of the most heralded Underground Hip Hop albums of '17.
RA the Rugged Man on Atlantic Signing Cash Me Outside Girl: I'm Not Surprised
Vlad: In this clip, R.A. the Rugged Man talks about the nature of the music business now and its inclination toward posturing up figures with large followings. Case-in-point, the "Cash Me Outside" girl and her being signed to Atlantic Records is a byproduct of poisonous celebrity culture.
