Thursday – Breaks remix. 02/02/12. Busta Rhymes – Woo Hah (Cockney Nutjob remix)

Thursday’s child was suffering a brain hemorrhage,

Integral in the 90’s east coast rap scene, Busta Rhymes, the rasta scream (or scrasta) king, provides a somewhat lighter element to the death march of many of the top players, with his larger than life persona & colourful videos, it’s hard to take him seriously. I doubt Tupac would have had the crossover appeal (or desperate need for money) to appear in Tiesto & Diplo’s C’Mon (Catch’ em by Surprise). But then again, im pretty sure Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr. is glad no one is pouring out a little liquor in tribute to him every Sept 13th.

Woo Hah is to date Busta’s biggest solo single, and still rocks an energetic crowd at 2am in the morning, but then again, so does Achy Breaky Heart if you are in the right (or wrong) clubs. Point being it’s catchy and recognizable, whether you can keep up with the lyrics matters none, as long as you Woo Hah to the Gods every 15 seconds. The rapper, named after a semi-well-known American Football player (seen here), is a gifted colloquialist and reads a thesaurus at an 8th grade level, but he still needed a little help for the title of this song, check out Sugarhill Gang – 8th Wonder and see if you can figure how he got his inspiration.

Believe it or not, Busta suffered a stroke at the end of the recording session whilst trying to deliver extra Woo Hah segments and hence the intelligible JAJA JAAAA JAJA. JAA JAJAAAA JA JA. The producer kept recording and the rest is history, along with his brain (evidence found in the 1998 single titled Iz They Wildin Wit Us?)

Check out the video if you have ever wanted to see what the entire Fubu range looks like through a Fish Eye lens. Actually it’s considered to be one of the better Rap videos of the 1990’s and I love how badass his boys are cruising in a Toyota ‘muthaflipping’ Camry.

The UK based, Bournemouth starring Cockney Nutjob contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking me to feature his Fine Young Cockney track on this blog, while it is has fantastic production quality, it is prominantly a mashup of Fine Young Cannibals and …. and we only like to highlight remixes here, so we kept in touch and he has delivered this new ‘Ghettofunk’ remix for your Woo-Hahppy pleasure.

The percussion of this track is so laidback it feels like Questlove from The Roots is personally tickling your naughty bits with his afro. By the time you actually feel your balls tingling from the blaring sub bass, Busta’s master ‘stroke’ takes over and you find yourself siezuring along to the catchy bassline and rhythmic lyrics. Going from Hip Hop to breaks is a fairly easy transition, and whilst this is a relatively simple remix, The Cockney Nutjob has produced a great track that will have old school fans enjoying a new beat and new school fans will appreciating an old feel.
