Corleone Hold the Throne


Out with the old, in with the new. That’s the perfect way to describe my migration from Blogger to WordPress and this brand new blog. You may know me from my old site, or you may not know me at all, but either way I appreciate you hopping on board for my new endeavor. Please hit me up with a comment or e-mail to let me know what you think of the new look.

I figured with my first post I’d explain my inspiration for the new direction. Taking a page from the book of Harlem-bred Lamont “Big L” Coleman, one of history’s best lyricists, I borrowed a lyric for my blog name from his “98 Freestyle” from Stretch & Bobbito’s radio show (veteran heads remember that one).

The cut originally appeared on L’s Big Picture which he was recording when he was murdered. Luckily, for hip-hop fans, he left a shitload of a capellas and freestyles that we can now rock for all eternity.

Why not start off with a bang? I got a true gem here, a vinyl-only pressing of Big L’s Harlem’s Finest: A Freestyle History Vol. 1 & 2. Here you’ll find the full-length “98 Freestyle” among more hot fiyah (no Dylan) than you can fathom.

Bear with me as I’m still getting used to WP. Good looks on checking in, Enjoy!
