Oi oi! Do you want a treat? Do you want one? Do you want a treat all up in your ear-slits like roaches, germs, mice, lice, termites and percunious bugs? This is the playlist for Wednesday by the one, the only, the super slick motherfucker that is Paul Pritchard. I”™ll hand you over to the man now, and he can fill you right in, just as you like it.
Peas and trucking, belieze.
Following a conversation with the super nice Kevin Atkinson I thought I”™d get to work on compiling a hip-hop playlist to reveal my previously fairly well hidden inner b-boy.

Yes, For most of my life I have harboured a bit of a hidden love for a bit of the ole hip-hoppity thing. Except for the last 3-4 years, when I have hardly listened to any due to being disillusioned with the whole genre. I have been truly rediscovering an old flame in the last couple of days while I have been compiling this for which I give big props (whatever that means!). It”™s topped and tailed by Public Enemy, who, in my opinion are the greatest rap act of all time. I”™ve tried to let it flow for the most part though you may disagree. It”™s mostly old stuff but with a couple of new discoveries (Daleks, La Rumeur) to modernise it a bit. BDP track is truly awesome and Ya Mama by The Pharcyde is such an infectiously good time call and response track. I remember seeing them perform it on The Word many years back and being blown away. MF Doom plays a big part in the Madvillain and Dangerdoom pieces and is probably my favourite current mc. It”™s Tricky by Run Dmc, truly awesome and broke ground for guitar based backing tracks which popped up many times in the future.
