    I've heard a few of these over the years, but not many. I like them, even though it's basically like bragging about your book shelf (is it? Maybe it isn't...)

    Anyway, I think this will be a short thread, but post them here if you got 'em:

    Prequel - Saints

    Daft Punk - Teachers

    I personally think they are more than simply bragging/shout out tracks...the history of acknowledging, showing respect and passing on knowledge through music very much chimes with oral traditions and taking advantage of the medium of music to do that. It isn't restricted to bigging up other musicians either. It's very much about education and creating consciousness too.

    Great example of the trend is Gary Byrd.

    Very true!
    Love the Shabba one for that - in a field like Dancehall which is so competitive and has so much badmouthing going on in it (Shabba playing more than his fair part in that), its hard to find a more respectful-to-other-artists piece of music.

    I do miss physical formats of the past for this, especially hiphop tapes, which were always filled with hundreds of shouts on them. Really built the culture and spread awareness
    Some rave/jungle 12s occasionally used to have some shouts to friends and djs on them, either printed on the label or even scratched in the run out groove

    And as for diss tracks......

    Skip to 45 minutes for live shout outs from TP. He even gives himself a shout out (many times throughout the mix) :D

    Or don't skip, actually. Because you'll miss out on one of the best mixes ever :cool:

    Haha, that's uploaded by a friend of mine!
    I saw TP play live (with telephone instead of headphones) in London once and he practically did a sermon at the end.

    yep he does that :)


    Shame he turned into such a loser in the last few years. He's a fucking awesome DJ :cool: / :(

    What do you mean? I have a vague recollection of him being a bit unreliable and something about him begging his fans to pay his tax bill
  26. Fez909

    Exactly that.

    He took money for gigs and didn't do them and ended up in massive debt to club promoters around the world. Went cap in hand to fans to bail him out.
