🕊 RIP Adolfo “Shabba-Doo” Quiñones – The Godfather of Street Dance [here is his full speech from his Induction into The Hip-Hop Museum, DC Feb.10th 2019]

Adolfo Quiñones (May 11, 1955 – December 30, 2020), known professionally as Shabba-Doo, was an American actor, dancer, and choreographer of African American and Puerto Rican descent. Quiñones is perhaps best known for his role as Orlando "Ozone" in the 1984 breakdancing film Breakin' and its sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.
As a member of The Original Lockers along with Don "Campbellock" Campbell, Fred "Rerun" Berry and Toni Basil, Quiñones became one of the innovators of the dance style commonly known as locking. His best-known role was as Ozone in the 1984 hit cult film, Breakin', as well as in its sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. Quiñones also appeared in Rave - Dancing to a Different Beat, which he also directed. He made guest appearances on TV shows, including The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, Married... with Children, Miami Vice, What's Happening!!, Saturday Night Live and Lawrence Leung's Choose Your Own Adventure. (source Wikipedia)

First Priority Family
‘Basement Flavor’ Compilation Album was released.
(Repost IG : ocd_hiphop)Basement Flavor” is the studio compilation album from the artists of First Priority Music (@firstprioritymusic) 🔈
Released on First Priority Music/Atlantic Records (@atlanticrecords), “Basement Flavor” was the one and only full-length project showcasing the FPM roster. Founded independently in 1987, the Brooklyn based label was one of the first to sign a nationwide distribution deal. Boasting talent such as Audio Two (@mcmilkdee) and MC Lyte (@mclyte), the label hit their stride in 1988 with their respective classic albums “What More Can I Say?” and “Lyte As A Rock”. Adding more talent to the roster, First Priority Music released their first and only compilation album “Basement Flavor” by the end of that same year. The album was notable for including the popular single ‘I’m Not Havin’ It’. Production on “Basement Flavor” was handled by Audio Two, Beat Factory, and King Of Chill (@kreepyclown). Including the aforementioned Audio Two and MC Lyte, other artists featured on the compilation include Alliance (@mrdiz), Positive K (@positive_k_), Michie Mee And L.A. Luv (@michiebadgyalmee @djlaluv), and Soul Shock (@soulshockla) 🔈

Phila Flava

I don't do mumble-rap, eyeliner rap, weird tattoos between the eyebrows rap and I definitely don't do suffocating tight-jeans kinda rap.

Here are 10 rappers I felt put in some serious work in 2020. Rappers that didn't drop albums (i.e. Rapsody or Pharoahe Monch) didn't make the list for obvious reasons. Some artist dropped classic material and some had underwhelming releases, but there was more to this than just a hot album.

This list is comprised solely of the 2020 material. Whether it's their consistency, lyrics, production, replay value or hip-hop quotables they've dropped, this is my 2020 Best Rapper List.

Like Q-Tip once said, opinions are like voices we all have a different kind.

Philaflava's 2020 Best Rappers
1. Black Thought
2. Benny The Butcher
3. Royce Da 5'9
4. Roc Marciano
5. Busta Rhymes
6. Freddie Gibbs
7. Conway
8. Killer Mike
9. Nas
10. R.A. The Rugged Man

Honorable Mention: Action Bronson, Jay Electronica, Open Mike Eagle, Westside Gunn, Elzhi, Boldy James, Che Noir, Tobe Nwigwe, Mach-Hommy, Blu, Sa-Roc, Ka, Reks, MC Eiht, Planet Asia, Your Old Droog, Willie the Kid, 38 Spesh, Billy Danze, Ras Kass, Locksmith, Murs, Slug, Naps N Dreds, Stove God Cooks, Him-Lo, Flee Lord & Crimeapple.

Comeback Player of the Year: Method Man
