Trin’s 5 spot the week – #3 Beatnuts- Beatnuts Forever

Coming in at #3 its the Beatnuts – Beatnuts Forever.
This joint from the first Violator lp and also on the Beatnuts Musical Massacre LP is a straight smash mouth.
Rough ass NY Hip Hop this got MUCH play in my 91 Acura Integra.


Trin’s 5 spot the week – #4 NORE – Grimey

4. NORE – Grimey ft. Pharrell

Up at the 4 spot is Grimey. This gem from 2001 was from NORE’s Def Jam lp “God’s Favorite” and it was also on the Violator 2.0 compilation. Seriously this shit right here (west coast voice) embodies that Hoodie Season watch your back shit.

Plus on the real like NORE said in the first verse, He showed yall how to rock a Neptunes beat. And seriously look back NORE helped the Star-Trak crew get its major shine in the late 90s with tracks like “Super Thug” and this joint right here.

Trin’s 5 spot the week – #5 Cru “Pronto”

So Labor Day has come and gone. Summer is TECHNICALLY over.
So in celebration of the upcoming fall, I dedicate the 5 spot of the week to that hoodie season music.
By the way this a double hit right here as they are all Violator songs #ripChrisLighty.

5. Cru – Pronto

This joint comes from Cru debut CD “Da Dirty 30”
If you was in High School late 90s this one of them sleeper joints that would give you that SERIOUS Headnod factor (word to Black45)

RIP Chris Lighty


My deepest condolences go to the Lighty family. If you know us the Violator management section of the history of hip hop is one that deeply influenced the dkandtrin sound. I met Chris once while interning at BadBoy records he seemed to be a very nice dude and was real humble. I really admired his career and biz moves from his epic marketing plan with 50 cent  and his effect on that 90s NY hip hop sound is nothing short of legendary.

Salute to Chris I hope you found your peace, thank you for what you have done for the music I love.
