CultStatus

3.22.2005

From the Soils Man!

After being serial blog-reader/commenter for the past 3 months, I've created my own Thingamajig; Cult-Status.

Cult: great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially : such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad b : a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion.
Status: position or rank in relation to others b : relative rank in a hierarchy of prestige; especially : high prestige

Here at Cult-Status we celebrate primarily musicians who have amassed cult followings amongst their fanbase.

The focus will be primarily hip-hop, but you never know.

I've been an active reader of many of the finer blogs around, so I'm hoping some of them will link me up.

(Yes,Bol,HoustonSoReal,Warscribe,ShrimpBoys,Sallimo,G/W,Noz,OnlyBuiltFor...,Freemotion,BrokeBboys,ETC.. I'm talking to you!.Thanks in advance...)

And lastly, rather than my going into the whole: who I am, where I from, and where I stand on all things Emo, I'll just let the posts go where they will. Smell me?

Off the bat, the first artist that made me feel I was part of a weird, fanatical, and loyal ass cult: Kool Keith.
This is a new interview w/ Keith that I swear I haven't even read yet. But dude gives some of the best interviews on the planet, so I know it's good stuff. Enjoy. Comment. Comment. And, uhhh, Comment.

Thanks,

DameBenz.

(Astral TruckerInterview with Kool Keith, 16 March 05)

Edit: Ck out the interview via the below link.

KoolKeith.co.UK has a great database of his interviews. If you click around, you'll find the one I call "The Best Kool Keith interview Ever. Period. You'll know why. It involves the styling of the pockets on the back of blue jeans. Seriously.

Props to the interviewer, site creator, the Gods and Earths, and Al Gore for inventing the Internet.

Scream @ Me in Comments People...

La Musica Gratis:

Keith and Nancy Des Rose - (EVERYBODY'S) SUGAR
http://s29.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1AYISZV7JTO2N1QWT1PU3ROM52
discuss amongst yourselves: "...singers to me are like Halloween Candy; soft candy-rap, trick or treat!!"

Kool Keith and Jacky Jasper - SILK SUIT, BLACK LINEN
http://s31.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1NUDVLIYK51BK2MZLG9QX53MJ7
discuss amongst yourselves: a)"Y'all can pay me no mind, just like you do the AIDS virus"

b)"...a mega-system, with movie screens in the room. Two TV's, they all work remote-control, suckas get amnesia, try to freeze my money..."

Bonus Blessing:
Dru Down - WEAK MOVES (uses the same beat as SILK SUIT, BLACK LINEN)
http://s29.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0Y73VF967WZZF3C2ENY6RD5X1M
"...but before the whole thang went down, you was talkin' like the baller of the Town, but knowing that Dru Down don't play, I keep it to myself, but your mouth was so big, you had to call for help. I was comin' kinda quickly, I had to show the motherphuca to repsect me. But all the mackin' that I do, I had to stay calm, so I just shot him in his foot, and let him hop home."

Unintentional comedy at it's finest. And I know I promised not to blog-bang, but here it goes: East Oakland, Stoopid Fifties All Day Like Whaaaaat?"

  • Your cousin told me you had a blog up too... No restaurant reviews here though. I don't like Kool Kieth I feel like he is too all over the place. He's to busy being a space monkey. I think that andre from outkast copied him though. Do you like Ultramagnetic MCs. They are all crzy innovative to me. Originality is definatly not being lacked with this bunch of space monkies. Dr octagons whatever, their wierd. No room for them in mainstream.

  • Don't forget Dru's "Can You Feel Me," one of the most unintentionally hilarious songs I've ever heard. It was such a joke.

  • No idea about the saafir rumor, dame. I stopped caring about saafir when he turned wack (around '96 or '97).

  • Glad someone enjoyed this article. Kool Keith is a real character. It took me about seven hours to track him down on the phone to do this interview!
