I'm the Lastings Milledge of this Blog Shit. I'm that cocky rookie. I'm ruffling some feathers with the older cats but they all know I'm nice with it.
Lastings walked back to the clubhouse after one of his last games last year to find a note taped to his locker that read "Know Your Place Rook!"
Willie Randolph started his first press conference with something like "OK lets get the Lastings Milledge shit-talk session out the way first."
In honor of Spring Training I offer these tidings:
Natural Resource: Negro League
This is Jean Grae's first group (They used to call her "What? What?"). To me she never really lived up to the potential heard in these early recordings. This three song 12" is one of the true gems of that mid-90's new york indie-wave.
Main Source: Just A Friendly Game of Baseball
Fuck The Police (RIP Sean Bell)
De La Soul (feat. Dres): Fanatic of The B Word
Come on everybody do the Baseball.
Ahmad, Ras Kass, & Safir: Come Widdit (The Fredwreck Remix)
They went all around the planet pitching and no-one hit it. The original joint was off the Streetfigher movie soundtrack. This version is off the 12" (they also had a video that was hype)
