Throwback Thursday: Hit Me With That Hardcore

1994 shit. Beatnuts. I didn’t really start fuckin’ with Beatnuts too hard until later on in my hip hop career (I’d say around ’98-’99) when Sammy Baptista used “Off the Books” for his video part in the Shorty’s skateboard flick “Fulfill The Dream”.

Anyways, this is an older Beatnuts joint that just gets better with time. Peep the 40’s and flannels.

The Beatnuts – Hit Me With That Hardcore

And just for shits and giggles, here’s that Sammy Baptista part from “Fulfill The Dream”.

It’s crazy for me to watch this shit and see how much the bar has been raised in the last 10 years. The Shorty’s ams were the best around back then. PERIOD. I mean, this video (except for Steve Olson, worst style in the history of skateboarding) set the standard for skateboarding when it came out. Now, when compared to recent videos, the shit is pale in comparison.
