Gome of the Week
I think we've all been waiting for Larry Fishburne, Lisa Bonet, and Kid Rock to make a movie about street racing motorcycles together, and by God, here it is.
"Survival of the Fastest."
How do they come up with this stuff? And seriously, isn't Vin Diesel kind of obligated to star in a movie lke this? Where is he?

This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Rapmania: The Roots of Rap (1990)
Goodness gracious, it's Rapmania: The Roots of Rap. This bad boy is full of over 2 hours of live performances from the best the east and west coast had to offer in what seems to be 1989 or 1990.
Performers include Big Daddy Kane, Def Jef, Biz Markie, and even a pre-House of Pain Everlast doing his what he thought was a hit single "The Knack," which slyly sampled "My Sharona" by the group of the same name.
Also features 3rd Bass and the ever popular Wanda D, who, after seeing her performance, I have even less of an idea of who she is.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Young Black Teenagers - Young Black Teenagers (1991)
The irony, of course is that none of them are black. But once you get over that and realize they started their career opening for Public Enemy, you realize it's probably ok and then you can deal with the fact that this record is really damn good.
I can't decide if I like this one or the second one better, but who really cares. These kids come from that early 90's era of rap where it looked like things might actually be done being gangsta and then 2Pac came and we were back to square one. You can find this record for 2 dollars. I did.
