    Indeed. It wasn't so long ago that he was widely perceived to have something of a snotty attitude concerning hip-hop, samples, and all the attendant carry-on. Assuming that perception was accurate to begin with (and it mightn't have been), I guess that over time he's seen the make-up and maybe even the size of his audience change, and realised that hip-hop has had a lot to do with that.

  • Bob's a rebel... I mean shoes on the couch.... I'm not even allowed shoes in the house! ;-)

Assuming that perception was accurate to begin with (and it mightn't have been), I guess that over time he's been paid, and realised that hip-hop has had a lot to do with that.

    Does this make Supreme a bona fide king of digging?

    Do people know how many of said CTI briefcases were produced?

    Fot those who havent seen it yet. A Bob James interview I did two years ago. He is talking about his recordings , the bellless version of Mardi Gras, why he owns his masterrecordings and he is challenging Biz Markie to show hin the Madi Gras without the bells.

    This isn't the "Mardi Gras" without the bells you're looking for.

  • Dj sheep says funk you! Fakers.

  • I had to register just because of this thread. I almost had a hoart attack this morning when I saw that video on youtube. Now my world has crumbled around me. Crazy stuff! Epic.

    is Bob holding the wine glass that comes with the suitcase???

    So wait - the Italian jukebox 'take me to the mardi grass' 45 is the only record you can pan to hear the drums and the bells on separate channels?

    Biz was sowing confusion??

    And the 12" in the pics with BJ is a forgery???

    Epic prank/hoax attempt foiled in flagrante????





    Scooby Doo!

  • Its like reproducing a work of art and then having the elderly artist take pictures with it and sign the frame. Pure disrespect if it's true.

    Or maybe he is Hitler...

    so is the thread officially over now that someone mentioned hitler?

    also why is sheep so angry at canal?
    i think canal was just kidding???dang

    i think someone should reissue the briefcase with the alpha omega mardi gras pressing and or a boot with the bells removed
    the strut alone would buy at least 200 of the "kit"
