Apollo Kids (Ghostface Killa) - Work
I was going to do a completely different theme for this week’s music post, but I thought it’d be better if I waited until using that one for now. I have a week-long theme planned that’s related to the subject, so I figure I’d save it until then. Eh, I’m busy anyway. The apt. floor’s damp from the combo of rain melting the ton of snow we had here and the fact that these apts. have NO sub pumps. So they just got done working on that. Then I have to go to work earlier this evening, so I’m short on time. Plus, I have lots of stuff to work on. **strokes chin** Hold up… that it. This week’s theme may as well be work-related. So every video is going to roll like that whether or not working is in the song title. No genre limits this week, either. Dig? Solid.


Ghostface Killa ‘Apollo Kids’ (warning: uncensored version) – Besides being part of the playlist I was listening to today, I’m adding this one because that picture that you see up there comes from this video. No, you never get a clear, straight shot at it, so I took lots of screenshots, warped them, and cleaned them up to get as close as I could to making a normal version.

Big Daddy Kane ‘I Get The Job Done’ (Live on Arsenio) – From BDK’s album “It’s a Big Daddy Thing” comes another joint with more slick word play and references that most current rappers’ albums. It may not be the music video with sweaty women using construction equipment (because you know I looked), but hey, you get to see more of Kane, Scoob and Scrap goin’ off and Kane getting smoove with ladies in the crowd before starting the song.

Public Enemy ‘Brothas gonna work it out’ – Wish I could give you a better link, but I’m just working with what I’ve got. Besides being yet another good P.E. jam, the protest in the video is about the infamous Howard Beach incident. Yes, MTV used to show this back when it still had a spine.

Donna Summer ‘She works hard for the money’ – Allow me to get 80’s on you, even though you were probably expecting this one. Still, I’m trying to mix things up this week. Besides, Donna Summer has a damn good voice.

Daft Punk ‘Harder Better Faster Stronger’ – Remember when Toonami used to be cool and played a bunch of the animated Daft Punk videos in order? If you’re wondering what’s up with the animated video, peep this Wikipedia page about Interstella 5555.

Loverboy ‘Working for the Weekend’ Can you get more appropriate than this one? I doubt it. Did you ever think you’d see Ghostface and Loverboy in the same post? I doubt it. And here it is, defying all expectations, shattering barriers and breaking your brain like an MF.

Time to jet, party people. Be sure to keep an eye on Illmosis this weekend to see a beta color version of that Mindsight picture and maybe some other newness or old newness. Later!
