Well, I dunno if anyone checks the blog roll here but I recently wrote a guest post for the dope mp3 blog Bounce/oz about the history of the talkbox. Of course, the blog’s title comes from Zapp & Roger’s classic, “More Bounce To The Ounce”.
Anyway, a comment on that post pointed me to a video assembled by producer Battlecat in affectionate tribute to Troutman, called “Still Mo Bounce”. The song features raps from an all-star cast of West Coast rappers, including Ras Kass, Tash from Tha Alkaholiks and Kam. The video itself has cameos from ML interviewee Kurupt, Xzibit, Saafir, DJ Quik, D-12′s Bizarre and George Clinton (!).
The song is produced by Battlecat and features him on talkbox.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMld1mz8D4c[/youtube]
For those unfamiliar with Roger Troutman and his work, now you have no excuse. Go read up.
ML’s Best of ’07 is on the way, and it’s going to be massive. Stay tuned
