about

THIS IS A CHOPPED & SCREWED (SOMETIMES CHOPPED WHERE THE ORIGINAL WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH) CELEBRATION OF THE HIP-HOP GEMS OF THE OFTEN SHITTY CORPORATE RADIO/TELEVISION OF THE LATE 90'S AND EARLY 00'S, PRIMARILY TARGETED TOWARDS CHILDREN.

IT ALL STARTED WITH GOODBURGER, WHICH IS PROBABLY THE BEST KIDS MOVIE EVER MADE. SURPRISINGLY, WHOEVER PRODUCED IT ACTUALLY REALLY GAVE A SHIT ABOUT MAKING IT A STIMULATING, POSITIVE EXPERIENCE WITH A SINCERE AESTHETIC. IT WASN'T UNTIL I WAS MUCH OLDER THAT I REALIZED A LOT OF THIS MUSICAL AND VISUAL AESTHETIC OWED TO GEORGE CLINTON AND PFUNK- WATCH THE VIDEO FOR 'DO FRIES GO WITH THAT SHAKE' AND THEN WATCH GOODBURGER, THE INFLUENCE IS OBVIOUS. NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT GEORGE CLINTON WAS LITERALLY IN THE MOVIE AND KENAN AND KEL DANCED TO NOT JUST (KNEE DEEP) IN AN INSANE ASYLUM AROUND THE SAME TIME THAT GEORGE APPEARS.

I DIDN'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT DISNEY SONGS. THE SING ALONG SONG VHS TAPES THAT EVERY KID ON THE BLOCK HAD HAUNTED MY CHILDHOOD. HELL, MOST OF THE MUSIC AND CONTENT IN GENERAL OFFERED TO KIDS FUCKING SUCKED. FUNK AND HIP-HOP WERE THE ONLY GENRES OF MUSIC I WAS REALLY INTERESTED IN AND THESE NUGGETS OF GOLD SCATTERED THROUGH EPHEMERAL BROADCASTS WERE THE FEW GLIMPSES INTO THAT WORLD THAT I GOT. AND YOU GOTTA REMEMBER, THERE WAS NO INTERNET BACK THEN. LIKE I HEARD FORGOT ABOUT DRE ON THE RADIO ONE TIME AND DIDNT EVER FIND OUT WHAT THE SONG WAS CALLED UNTIL LIKE EIGHT YEARS LATER.

FINDING, SCREWING, AND FORMATTING THESE SONGS COMES FROM A GENUINE INTEREST IN BLURRING THEIR COMMERCIAL SOURCES AND NATURES TO CREATE AN ENJOYABLE AND CONTEMPORARY LISTENING EXPERIENCE. IT ALSO COMES FROM A LOT OF LOVE FOR DJ SCREW AND THE SCREWED UP CLICK.
