Pretty dope list there, Juice.
Kind of off topic but a few months back I was listening to a college station and I heard a hip hop track done to the beat of Billy Idol's "Eyes Without A Face"... it sounded pretty tight. Anybody know who the artist is and/or the track name?
**ALSO ( 80s off topic): I saw the new Bone Thugs video yesterday, featuring none other than Phil Collins! Shit had me rollin', Phil standin there lookin' all hard in his all black gear and black cap. He looked pretty tough for an old man.
thanks.. just some shit that takes me back to a time when you could actually listen to the radio and get a good variety of artists and songs. i can remember actually taping hour-long blocks of music on KAMEL, KSOL, KITS, KFRC, and KPOO & listening to them like store-bought compilations..
yeah, i seen that bonethugs/phil collins collabo.. i was trippin when i saw that.. weird combination to say the least, but i have to admit it's more refreshing than say a collabo with ashanti or ja rule any day.
"That was just something to sneak out there and have them playing for us real quick," he insisted. "We're thinking about 'Home,' the song we did with Phil Collins (see "New Bone Thugs Album Has Phil Collins But No Bobby Brown"). We're going to shoot the video, probably in the middle of this tour. We're trying to decide [on a concept]. It's probably going to be a live performance, something like that."
As for why they decided to sample Collins' 1985 hit "Take Me Home," Wish said, "It was just deep. It was the perfect sh-- for us to address some situations that nobody can do other than us. The hook was just perfect.
"Basically, everybody has problems. We're saying, 'Man, we're tired of all the bullsh--.' Like 'Calgon, take me away. Take me home for a while, let me chill out and get my head together.' " -krayzie bone
