Song of the day 1/11/13

Live and Stink by Mike Zoot

That Tony Bones post from earlier this week got me listening to a bunch of old indy shit I hadn’t heard in a while. One song that popped up was this joint by brooklyn (If i recall correctly) rapper Mike Zoot. Zoot had a bunch of 12″ records out back in the day and made a little buzz but it never really went beyond that. That was unfortunate cause I always felt he was a good rapper with an original style. This one in particular was always my favorite as the playful Buckwild beat went perfectly with Zoot’s carefree rhymes. This is one of those songs that certain lyrics of will just pop into my had to this day. Good stuff, bros.

Also, I was recently on the “Shot’s Fired” Podcast with Jeff Weiss, Nocando and Open Mike eagle. We discussed the history of rap alter ego’s. It’s got some really funny moments and, if you listen, you just might learn a thing or two.

  1. man the host of that podcast is fucking obnoxious. but otherwise good shit. prolly coulda givin more love to viktor vaughn, his first album is so dope; doom embraces dark and shit.. and no talk about rza? bobby digital was some crazy awesome shit. and of course gravediggaz.(for that matter prince paul is usually on some weird other persona shit). deltron, cage (nighthawks, leak bros sorta, and his best collab smut peddlers), lotta the core wu-tang members. id say dudes like mc chris should also be in this category, he gets on some crazy metabullshit w/ his persona. prolly counts more than parody shit (no disrespect to PFAC, love yall) like HBMS and various others.

  2. Zoot has been one of my favorite for years now. Love this track. Can;t imagine why he didn’t make more noise. There was no fall off.
