Ultramagnetic MC's on Shade45


Last night on Shade45, the legendary Ultramagnetic MC's from the BX were on Tony Touch's Toca Tuesdays to mark the 20th Anniversary of their debut album. Ultra is one of my favorite groups of all-time, and their album Critical Beatdown is certainly in my Top 20 rap albums list (honestly probably in the Top 10).
Check out the audio of the interview below... Highlights: Kool Keith calls himself the "Kobe Bryant of Rap" that "travels like Bill Walton". Ced Gee claims credit for producing all of BDP's classic (wayyyyyy up in my Top 20) Criminal Minded except for "South Bronx", "9mm" and "Elementary". T.R. Love claims credits for the scratches on "Poetry".
Oh, and don't miss the shout-out to Tuff Crew. Big night for the kid...

I picked Keith up from LAX once and we went on a run around town checking his stock. It was a video article for GrandRoyal.com based on a real fact -- Keith would personally go around LA, check stock, and harass store owners asking why his product wasn't well merchandised. At Tower on Sunset he went down under the racks to find the backup stacks and filled out his rack, put some on the rack above, the endcap, etc.

Before I dropped him off at home we stopped at a news stand to look at some pr0n. All for show? I don't think so.
