friday means rap music

i'm standing at this record shop in paris. these british kids come running in trying to find american gangsta rap mixtapes. all of the sudden they hear the "wukka wukka wukka," of record scratching. there is some guy in a booth behind some tables and these kids are enamored. i keep meandering around, searching for some fronch mixtapes to get some new music and broaden my horizons. i end up getting a vantage point of the dude behind the record players. he is crabbing away crazy fast, but just staring off in the distance. anyway, he isn't touching a damn thing, just scratching his fingers on the counter top...not even touching the mixer. he delighted at the reaction of the kids and was just playing some french mixtape, scratches already laid down. hahaha, tourists! they believe anything.

just like me, i guess. I bought these two things and had no idea if they were any good or not:

soul bro therapy, by ruddy lapoz and convoyeur de son, by dj sado

i don't speak french, and so am not sure if i dig the music or not, but if anyone has any info, tell me. my net searches came up fairly empty...

, by ruddy lapoz, from his "soul bro therapy"
