Sacred Hoop Post

Sacred Hoop
Bring me the Head of Sexy Henrietta

Nearly a month without a post ! This blog has been out of my focus for the last weeks, but when I came today, I noticed some people had left comments... Thanks to all of you readers ! Achieving this first step on the path to internetsuperstardom just made me realise how important this blog is to me...

So, for the Anonymous reader who asked me for Sacred Hoop, yeah I have that in stock.
Sacred Hoop are a group from the Bay Area. Lead by Luke Sick, they make funny underground rap... They're a bit in it for the joke IMHO... I've always found their flows to be pretty un-funky and repetitive and I never was a fan but for you, reader, here is Bring me the Head of Sexy Henrietta, one of their albums from 1997.

Wait, you think I just came back from my three weeks retirement just to make this post about a group I don't like that much ? Unfortunately, I am not enough of a player in this Superstardom game to act like Jay-Z and make my day with wack comebacks. Here's the transition : it's through Sacred Hoop that I discovered an amazing emcee named Z-man.

4 Hours Of Sleep (Self Produced)

Z-man fits into an emcee archetype I'm definitely a fan of. He's a insolent jackass with an acid, high-pitched voice, and he keeps on delivering hilarious, angry, irreverencious punchlines. Do you know about Yak Ballz, or Young Zee from the Outsidaz ? He is that kind of rapper.

He started his career with a band named 99th Demention, then self-produced mixtapes, one of which I have the pleasure of sharing with you today. Sometimes in duo with the Gingerbread Man (his alter ego on helium, some kind of grotesque Quasimoto), Z just can't stop it on this tape... Just D/L it.

He also played and rapped with these Sacred Hoop people, then in 2004 he released an album named Dope or Dog Food on Hiero, yeah, the Del, Souls of Mischief's Hyeroglyphics, and then... I didn't know so I just googled to see what he was up to... He got really some cool tracks on his myspace, but he's also in some band with crappy pseudo-R&B singers, like some nerd gay Black Eyed Peas... definitely a dissapointment, the band is on Island Def Jam and it's called... I've already forgotten the name and whatever it's crap, we'll stick to the old songs.

I won't leave you with just one good album, so here's the 12" from Z's Hiero Album. It's named Z-Mutiny, and on the B-side is a road security song named Buckle Up, plus some instrumentals and acapellas for the MP3 DJs...

Actually, I never managed to find any 99th Demention material. If someone has that, it would be cool to upload it... Otherwise, I had several requests for Global Phlowtations mp3s, so that will be the theme for one next post...
