Friday Random Ten – Half-Assed Edition

Since the regular computer with all the music files is broken, I’m resorting to my wee mp3 player in which only fifteen music files are stored. This is the stuff I jog to.

1. The Kleptones – Bite
2. Bone Thugs and Notorious B.I.G. – Notorious Thugs
3. Too Short – Gettin’ It
4. Pharcyde – Other Fish In The Sea
5. Crucial Conflict – Hay
6. Pharcyde – Runnin’
7. Too Short – Short But Funky
8. Biz Markie – The Vapors
9. John Legend – I Used To Love You
10. Cee-Lo Green – The Art of Noise

I prefer the slow-ish jams when I jog. It keeps me from overestimating my speed abilities.

    One name. Mason Jennings. Look him up.

    I can say with all honesty that I know perhaps one of the artists on that list. My extremely narrow taste for hiphop is limited to esotery like Dälek or Sage Francis.

    “It keeps me from overestimating my speed abilities.”

    This is no shit! I learned the hard way to keep the Red Hot Chili Peppers the hell out of the jogging mix! Kickboxing or walking, yes. Running, no!

    I prefer slowish jams when I’m running, too – keeps that heart rate in check. My random ten this week isn’t from my mp3 player and slow jams aren’t represented. It’s still good though.

    You like Too Short’s “I Need a Freak”? That’s my favorite by him. John Legend is a god, but if you’re digging on him, you MUST check out Van Hunt. Buy the CD without even sampling it. I guarantee that you’ll NEVER regret it. Sir Mix A Lot has a fun song that was never on the radio called something like “Chief Boot Knocker” that’s catchy and great to run to as well. That’s my two cents!

    HDL: Despite Too Short’s lyrical content, he can’t go wrong by me. It’s too bad to be taken seriously. And as far as Sir Mix-A-Lot goes, it’s all about “Posse on Broadway.”
