Life The Great – JuLife: Tracks 1-17

julife17.jpg

You may recall that I posted a video from Atlanta MC Life The Great back in March. I wasn’t all that familiar with his work at the time, but I’ve heard some good stuff since then and so I wanted to show some support on his JuLife project. Basically, dude is going into the studio and recording a new track everyday for the entire month of July. I didn’t want to commit to posting each on a daily basis for a couple of reasons, so instead I’m going to do two roundup posts. This is the first and it includes the first 17 tracks that have dropped so far. Some are original tracks, but many are remakes of some of Hip-Hop’s classics. Look for the second one at the end of the month with the rest.

I’ve included the commentary that came with each track in order to provide some context.

1. Ghetto Blaster

Today is JuLife 1st, 2008 so like we promised here is track 1 of 31. The record is entitled
“Ghetto Blaster” and it is produced, written and recorded by Life The Great. We are shooting a new video for “The Pager” off of the “UltraSound” album at the end of the month and we decided last night to make a special appearance by this record. Let’s do it!!!

2. G.A Hustler

The obvious question from people is “Is he really recording all new material or using old shit” and
my answer is “We are in the studio every night working on records from scratch”

3. Takin Out You Suckas

Life The Great here and I just want to say thank you to everyone who shows love “out the gate” and even those who need a little more convincing before opening up blog real estate for my projects (no pun intended). I invite and look forward to building with all of you guys and you can reach me on pretty much every instant messenger using lifethegreat… myspace.com/lifethegreat or just hit me on the pager 770-256-5313.

This record is called “Takin Out You Suckas” and in it I took the D-Nice “Call Me D-Nice” track
and built on that, but aiming it at the people that think all this cars, jewels and women is new
when we have been doing that on records. Also it’s for people that down these rappers that come out (mainly out of the south where im from) with dances and novelty records…that ain’t new. Like I said in the record “If they want to talk about ‘walkin out’, let ’em walk it out cause we was wop’in out back in ’84”. If you’ve never listened to The UltraSound (my free album) then you might be wondering why am I rocking over these oldschool tracks. Well this is all part of my trilogy of albums that will explain where Life The Great came from, where he is at and where he is going. Just stick with me and I guarantee that you will be entertained and some will be educated on the origins of this thing we call Hip Hop.

04. Somebody

Today being JuLife 4th, 2008 we wanted to make a “bar-b-que” record that took it back to that bar-b-que we had back in Grant Park 1989. back when Tone Starr had an S-Curl and all the pretty ladies used to call him Al B. Sure..oh yes they did. Anyway on this record I grabbed that Heavy D. and the Boys record “Somebody For Me” and gave it a little more Life. Anyway enjoy and Im back to work to finish another bar-b-que record for tomorrow so I can get my fireworks on tonight.

05. Me and my Dj

Oh yes, I think this one came out great especially since I had bar-b-que on the brain. “Me and my Dj” is the name of this joint and with this one I borrowed the timeless record “It takes two” by Rob Base and Dj E-Z Rock (another cook out classic) to pay homage to the dj….my dj. This one I just had fun with so run with it….ride with it and I will be right back here tomorrow. If you have oldschool instrumental send them joints to me…Im stockpiling instrumentals for inspiration.

06. Dopeman

This is one of my favorite beats of all times so it was only right that I jump on it…N.W.A’s
“Dopeman”. We are just having fun with these records trying to bring back the feeeling that I felt when listening to these records back in the late 80’s. Once again enjoy and I am working on a record for one of my own beats that will hopefully be ready for tomorrow.

07. Trapper Keeper

Today’s record is another that is produced by Life The Great and after I finished it I thought “This should have been on The UltraSound” like right after “The Pager” this record should have been inserted. It’s called Trapper Keeper and yes it is about what you are thinking. I remember writing all of my rhymes in my old beat up Trapper Keeper in Jr. High and only wish that I could find it now because I swear I would open one of these 31 days for it. Once again I thank everyone for just listening, whether you post them up or not, I am grateful.

08. LifeDMC like ChuckD

Remember when the two man emcee group used to go back and fourth with their rhymes? Remember the chill bumps you would get when listening to RUN DMC kick “Here We Go”? Well that’s exactly what I was listening to as a youngin as well as this weekend. This record is almost like a megamix being that I took 3 different instrumentals and kicked my rhymes (ha). Salute to Jam Master Jay and Terminator X! Oh yeah the record is called “LifeDMC like ChuckD” that’s another thing, I miss the crazy and sometimes abstract titles of songs. Anyway I’m sure most of you have heard two of the records in this megamix but raise your hand if you remember “Mind Terrorist”.

09. No PEN Behind 55 Bars

Now…When I wrote this record it was a first for me. I had ideas that I wanted to get out but I had no pen lastnite in the studio. So I did it in my head 8 bars at a time what a nite it was eazy though. I was just riding (the beat) off of the excitement that “Young Gifted and Black” brought to me…really I was kind of mad that I overlooked it for this long. The 55 bars that I spit on this pretty much sums up my passion for this music we call Hip Hop. “I’m so Atlanta the mayor gave me immunity…I’m so Africa Chaka Zulu he knew of me” . You have to listen to this entire record (several times actually) especially the end where I just spoke what I felt at that time. This ain’t a diss song it’s a real song.

10. Mic Addiction

Ok people today is day 10 of the 31 Songs in 31 Days campaign and we are seeing a lot of new people being added to the list most by request and best of all they are talking about Life The Great and his NEVER before done promotion….A new song everyday for the whole month of July? You gotta love that! Anyway here is Life The Great speaking on today’s track….(P.S we finally got the Calendar to function on his myspace)

Ok I will not bore you with an extensive email explaining this record because really the lyrics speak for themselves. Some people don’t/didn’t know that I am on my ghost writing hustle very hard! You already know what I do for me, but you probably didn’t know that I do that for others too. Hooks, Tracks, Arrangement and sometimes whole records (Scooter holla at me I have a single for Asher!). It’s really nothing for me to do what I do because I am a “Microphone Fiend” which means of course I have a “Mic Addiction”.

“If You looking for the flow homie you ain’t know? I got it for the low low homie you ain’t know…” – Life The Great

11. Don’t Listen

So I’m in the studio with my homegirl Robinicole last night working on a few records for her to shop and it put me in a space where I haven’t been in awhile. You know where you start to think about your position in life/career etc… Well the time is about 4:18am Friday juLife 11th, 2008 and my iPod is on shuffle when I come upon Phil Collins singing to me from years ago. I’m about to make a track right now and speak to adversity because though he/she is a nuisance and sometimes bares down on me I refuse to lose. This record is dedicated to Kanye, No-Id, Busta Rhymes and LA Reid because little did they know that adversity stop them from really absorbing who I am, but just like that time there will be other opportunities to hear me….I’m good now. 6:45am and this record is called “Don’t Listen” and it means just that “Turn it off if you want to…”. This song should be on my next album, but I running it because someone else needs to hear it today I’m sure of it.

12. Passion Of Life

First of all shout out to J. Armz and Cutmaster D.C because there 80’s instrumental tape really saved me a lot of time and provided a lot of inspiration. One of the more inspiring tracks is called “Play This Only At Night” by Dougie Fresh and The Get Fresh Crew produced by Dennis Bell. Now I can’t front I do not remember this record from the 80’s, but when I heard it I thought they messed up and put the wrong track on this CD because this beat definitely was made within the last few years that how dope it is. Needless to say it brought out the lyrical beast within and I just blacked out.

“Come ride on my airline lines…Delta ain’t got nothing on me” – Life The Great

13. 777-9311 a.k.a 404-496-5772

I remember wanting to so desperately be in the Purple Rain movie when I was younger just to kick it to the most beautiful woman I had seen up to that time. This song is my dedication to Vanity over the 777-9311 record. These are just my thoughts people just ride with me. This is track 13 of the 31 songs in 31 days campaign that is also know as juLife 2008 if you are new to this list check my myspace.com/lifethegreat for more details.

14. Creativity In Month 9

I’ve had this beat for the album but I could never get inspired by it before today. So I was going through my nightly ritual of going through tons of records and ran across this one. I call it Creativity In Month 9 because soon you guys will be hearing a global release of my next album (it’s completed already) which title will explain more why I named the song this. Also I feel like I’m a great writer like the gentleman featured on this song and I felt this conversation he had about his music in the time period that he released his records fully represented me. Can you tell me who is musically genius is?

15. Paid In Full ‘08

So umm yeah that was the legendary Curtis Mayfield on the record with me yesterday…..Anyway today is juLife 15th, 2008 and I don’t know about you, but for some it’s paid day. Majority of those who still get bi-weekly checks really hate what they are doing and prefer to do what they do after hours for a living (I know I do). Last night I decided that I’m gonna make a song about just that therefore “Paid In Full” would be the perfect backdrop. Big ups to Kinggs and the crew over at the legendary illroots.com and Eskay at nahright.com…..Tai holla at me!

16. Vapors ‘08

This record is a true story although the names have been changed. TJ Swan is now Young Jock, Big Daddy Kane’s story has been replaced with D. Woods of (Danity Kane) and of course the lead character originally done by Biz Markie has been substituted with Life The Great. If you haven’t figured it out the record is called “Vapors ‘08” and this one should get a video….

17. The Future

It’s been 17 days and you have yet to hear a guess vocal on any of these previous 16 records. Today I want to mix things up a little and put one of my homies on this track aptly titled “The Future” because that’s what we are! It seems that we are so futuristic that some of you bloggers can’t keep up….what’s up with that? Ha. As we continue to drop a new song everyday for the rest of this month big up to all the bloggers that move with us especially the one’s that post the records up damn near as fast we send them out….Yes! This record is called “The Future” featuring my lil homie Jerz of The V.O.C

    but, now that I think about it… when I went to UP IN SMOKE, every race was present and everyone knew Em’s lyrics… the whole stadium. I guess the concert brings out a different dynamic than when someone is just quading shit out of their whip.

    Street niggas who fucked with street nigga shit…..Fucked with lil wayne and listened to his music….

    If you listen to jeezy, pac, t.i. jay, luda…..You fucked with eminem…

    YES….hood dudes fucked with eminem’s music…

    If you was a pre- internet nerd, south hating, rap elitist….then you ain’t fuck with Em….

    Eminem murdered u on ur own shit.

  27. eskay Says:

    >>NO WAYYYYYYY .. man i cant believe this, do you hang with Duckdown backpacking looking ass niggas??

    I mean, yeah, pretty much. niggas was mostly about lyricism and if Em had it, then you gave credit. he did get alot of hate from some dudes, but for the most part Em was respected.

  28. Edgar C. Says:

    Em’s shit isn’t exactly crusin music homeboy…

    but u can guarantee at one point there was bound to be about 4 to 5 people on any block with that shit in the headphones…

  29. Joe 88 Says:

    ^^ ive had similar convos w peopl but they went another direction. Too many rapper talk shit, stunt and lie. So many rappers never ever talk about anything relevant. Em may have been disrespecting his mom, but he was talking about his own life,right? that makes for interesting music and it did and it sold.

  31. Hatrick Swayze Says:

    In the Black Community or Latin Community where most times the Mother is revered; a Nigga like Eminem didnt hit home. Trust I like to listen to music to have fun, dance, diddybop, wildout. But when an Artist hit home thats when Music became Life(c) Dear Momma

  34. Hatrick Swayze Says:

    True…em was never the type that you roll up on with bitches with…

    that was more like Jay, Fif, Dipset, Old Ja

    But em was that shit you popped in when you was going to and from work or just at the house playing video games….

  39. eskay Says:

    Em was one of the nicest who ever did it. if niggas don’t wanna give him credit cuz he’s white, I don’t know what to tell them. that goofy, left fiel, super lyrical shit is not a whole lot different then what alot of dudes were doing in the 90’s, (i.e. Redman, the Fu-Schnickens, etc.) so any hate towards Em over his style is probably some racial shit.

    ^That’s now in the present. At one point street niggas use to listen to wu tang. If the wu was a new group in this day & age the streets wouldn’t listen to them either. My point being, at one point street niggas would listen to anything that sound good, not anything that talk about the streets. And yes, the streets did listen to eminem

    ^Naw, your thinking about the “sorry mama” em, the em that was killing his momshit, think before that, he was getting bumped heavy. Not like let me turn this up & swerve next to this bitch type bump, but he was getting spins. Think before the D-12 shit, & before the mom song, he got love from the streets. The marshall mathers CD was toching a whole lot of topics everyone can relate to, & the third album was crazy. I stop listening after that, but before then, he got love from dem streets

    SMH @ niggas saying Em wasn’t respected by the “hood.” Did they bump it in their whips or at parties or in the club? Nah, because Em didn’t make music like that. But I know mad black people who respected his talents, bumped his freestyles (which were and still are crazy), but hated how MTV and mainstream was trying to crown him the greatest of all time.

    sorry Joe but not in my circle/block around 97-00 there was alot of music that smashed in cars. Em only got bumped if he was guested. But then again the Eastcoast always trumpted rhymes over beats…. Here its always been the other way around, Not me
