Music Monday: Cameo

Posted in Good Shit, Music Monday with tags , , , on August 24, 2009 by Ben Badio

Before the rise and fall of the club banger in the late 2000s, there was the rise and fall of electro-infused funk and soul in the early 1980s. Welcome to Cameo.

These are the fools who popularized the phrase Word Up!

These are the fools who popularized the phrase "Word Up!"

This is the shit your parents were stumbling to at clubs and bars when they were your age, or my parents at least. Regardless, your parents probably heard these songs in their more youthful days, and I’m sure you’ve probably heard one of these tracks on I Love the Insert-a-Decade-Here TV series. So get ready to groove. Click the links to download.


Don’t Be So Cool

Back and Forth

Listening to the other hundred songs you’ve just downloaded is really difficult after coming across a song as good as this.

Cute girl, good music

In case you haven’t heard, the Hands Up Blog is Orlando’s self-proclaimed psychic crystal-ball blog for Hip-Hop. In other words, whatever you read/see/listen to on this blog is THE FUTURE OF HIP HOP.

Jamaica Avenue!

Jamaica Avenue!

Das Racist – Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell

Finally, rappers are beginning to focus on topics America cares about! Let’s hope for a Bistro Gourmet McDonald’s Remix!

New Boyz – You’re a Jerk

New Boyz are what I consider “Hip Hop Gumbo.” Take one part “The Pack,” two parts “Lil’ Wayne,” and seven parts “The Cool Kids.” Place in a large pot, add water. Serve cold.

Clipse feat. Kanye West – Kinda Like a Big Deal

Clipse and Kanye come together for a special occasion in which they rap about how awesome they think they are. Not out of the ordinary, but a decent track nonetheless.



Busta Rhymes – G-Stro

Busta’s back…for real this time…I swear. He’s rapping fast, shouting non-sensical phrases and repeating himself again, just like back in the mid-90s. Hell yes! NOTE: This track is produced by Pharell, so expect to hear some random adlibing from Hip-Hop’s other Diddy.

T-Wayne – He Raps, He Sings, It’s T-Wayne

A short and oh-so-sweet introductory trackĀ  for one of the most-anticipated, least interesting upcoming albums.

Rye Rye feat. M.I.A – Bang (DJ Booman Remix)

Rye Rye is the next Kid Sis, who was the next MC Lyte. Listen UP!

Mapei – Leader of the Pack

Mapei is the next Rye Rye, who was the next Kid Sis, who was the next MC Lyte…Listen UP!

Amanda Blank

Amanda Blank – I would Like You Better If We Slept Together

Words of Wisdom from the infamous Amanda Blank, the sexiest hip-hopstress in the game.

Dead Prez

Dead Prez


If you download any track in this post, or even on the entire page, let it be this one. Dead Prez are back and just as socialist as ever. This is a MUST-LISTEN.

BONUS! Dead Prez – Hip Hop (Adam S. Edit)

Our local fave teases us with another other-worldly mash-up. Please forgive him for toying with this Dead Prez classic, an act which even he considered “Sacrilege.”

Don’t think that because you’re not french you can’t make great electro/house music. Thanks to some really cool foreign web designer named Matias Najle, you’re now able to do all the crazy shit those robots do from the comfort of your own home! Check this shit out:

Daft Punk is playing at YOUR HOUSE.
