Diggin' through the crates, I got beats for the daze!

I was reading some of Delinquent's old new posts and came across this...

"Ting Tonger
Type: MC
Alliance: n/a"

When I clicked the hyperlink, it lead me to BigRed's page. I'm guessing he changed his name sometime in the past, either before Delinquent got banned or after, I'm still unsure. Regardless I credited BigRed as inspiration.

This track samples a few things, only one of which I'm willing to credit, outside of GasMasq's bars from an old battle that is.

The strings, vocals and bits of piano sprinkled throughout are sampled from Russian composer's Евге́ний Па́влович Крыла́тов AKA Eugene Krylatov's score for the late 70's film The Little Mermaid released in Western Europe. I don't think the movie received an extended release here in the states, but I could be wrong.

The scratching is highly reminiscent of Delinquent's favorite scratch tool. I figured I'd include it as a homage to our late great NewGroundsHipHop Sampling GodFather. I hope he is still making music. The last I heard from him after talking on Skype, he was planning on enlisting in the Navy and told me he would start putting more material up on YouTube. Sadly, it seems as if most of his material is now gone from the interwebs, with Motoko Kusanagi's uploads of almost all of his tracks now gone, his music is nigh impossible to come by these days.

If anyone is interested in regaining access to his tunes, I've got most of his NewGrounds material backed up, even the old DogStreet material that was never uploaded to YouTube.

I digress.

This is getting long....

I think I'll end this tirade of text with a transcription of the sampled lyrics from GasMasq's battle with Gloine.

Here's a lesson for the stupid
This is what it seems to me to being a superstar
Isn't about who is hard, but whether or not you're up to par

I need to make a statement and it's hard for you to face it

I got a compendium for ending them other MC's like you
If you think that's 16 mic too, I guess you have to leave it, but
if you don't think you need this, guess again, 'cause I don't believe that
You have got the heart for war, so before I have to merc you
I suggest you take a bow and now so I don't laugh and hurt you

You know you know it hard, it's like the Masq is, so you trace it
Amass it, but ya basic, ya flaccid pussy, I break it
Fakeness isn't up in my diction, i don't know what it means, but
I don't need to use a word to crush all of your dreams

Very good track (and nice pic) !

Pretty cool. It's like a drum break salad. The samples got that 90s underground feel. The piano in there reminds me of the Cannibal Ox instrumentals.

This goes hard af. Love the way this break is getting spun especially around 1:20-1:35. So dope.
