Old magazines + itunes + blog = procrastination

...indeed. Today I got my old HHC's out to find something for a future post. I picked up a copy dated March 2002 and flicked to the 20-page supplement entitled '100 Best Singles of All Time'. Hmm, do I have all of these tracks? A quick scan reveals I don't, but, how many do I have?

Turns out on itunes I have a mere 27 out of the 100, on CD it appears I have 40 of them and 33 are missing from my collection. It is now my mission to complete the list and have an itunes playlist dedicated to 'HHC's 100 Best Singles of All Time'. Yes, I'm a rap nerd.

Here are a few tracks that I anticipate having some trouble finding straight away:

OC - Time's up
Ultramagnetic MC's - Watch me now
The Crooklyn Dodgers - Crooklyn
Hardnoise - Untitled
Marley Marl ft MC Shan - Marley Marl Scratch
Rammellzee vs. K-Rob - Beat Bop
T la Rock - Breaking Bells
Hijack - Style Warriors Revenge
Just Ice - Cold getting dumb

If you can help me out, let me know!

Yo, I got yr comment re: Marley Marl Scratch... I'll try to find it but it may take me a while. In the meantime, you could try searching/soulseeking for a copy of ego trip's "the big playback" compilation... I'm pretty sure it has Marley Marl Scratch and the Ramelzee track you're after on it.
