"whutthafuck is dundee?"


          

This "Dundee" shit is a state of mind. It began with Malik a.k.a. M-Alien, and me in college. <P>Being the true Philly thoroughbreds that we are, we were always in competition for the flyest gear award. Malik's nickname was "Slacks" because he always wore fresh dress pants. My name was "Jungle" because I was steady rockin' some safari- type shit. "Dundee" was originally used to refer to the texture of certain fabrics. If an article was made of vintage leather, raw denim, canvas, hemp, rough linen or cotton, it had the potential to be classified as some "Dundee" or rugged shit. It comes from Crocodile Dundee but it ain't got nuffin' to do with Paul Hoagan. It's more about a lifestyle now. It's about doing what you gotta do to survive in the wilderness. It's about the balance between total control and wreckless abandon. The Dundee approach to life is adventure. It's about taming this beast of a world and the apparel needed to do so. ... Damn, I feel like I'm doing a commercial for my new DUNDEE STONE clothing line. Check for that. Peace.

a dorito head is you, money. Period. WHAT! WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT SON"!@ huh? You wanna dance with me? Is that it? What's this "Young" shit? where are you from? D.C.? A doritohead is a cat that don't think, whose breath stink, who rocks beige and hot pink, whose net server take three weeks just to link, who come up in your house and piss in Mom's kitchen sink, who steady at the bar like, "Can I borrow a drink? ... etc. etc. I'm just fuckin' with you, but thanks for asking. The truth is, all dotito heads know who they are. If you don't know the meaning you're safe ... for now. Peace ! I have a ferry to catch.

Yo Black-<BR> Good to see that you showin' your face on to us okayplayas...Question: Why don't you ever show your face whenever you're on the Illadelph side? I'm from Philly and one thing heads always talk about here is that the only time we get to see you play is when the Roots are at the electric factory...Didn't catch you at Space last time...I was a little vexed. That's why I'm just trying to figure out if you'll ever show up at some small Philly venue, off-the-record type shit, just to break into a cypher, chill, whatever. You'd definitely make a bunch of true heads like myself mad happy.<P>that hot pink shit was dope<BR>alejandro

seems like Black Thid-ought's always cathing a bus <BR>and ferry. If he's talking about public transportation then that's one more thing to learn from these Roots.

Yo, I was in the North East (Philly that is...), and I'm not completely positive, but I'm pretty sure I saw a Dundee street. Kinda strange actually. I'm thinking of getting in to some old school mischief and heisting the street sign...<P>BTW, I'm not trying to pull anyone's card, but I've seen these two cats, one on South St. and one on Fifty Deuce (that's 52nd st. y'all) thats been bootlegging TFA cd's without any of the limited edition covers. I mean if you gonna sell some shit you shouldn't be selling, at least make the shit look good!<P>Known to get down near Chelten and Germantown,<BR>G-Towns Finest<P>p.s. I didn't buy any of those wack bootlegs, so no reason to hate...

Peace God,<P>Thank you for clarifying the meaning or significance behind DUNDEE, I pretty much figured that out, but It's even better coming from the source. As usual, Mind detect Mind, consciousness refined.....anyway, my point is I am one who actually receives the message of the ingenious lyrics that gets me so hype. You are truly blessed, not that I had to tell you that, but it feels good to hear those types of words from like minds. Please continue to shine your light on the world of darkness, and soon, I shall be joining you. I am an artist also ( from da Chi!!) still paying dues and if this industry is ready, then watch out BABY!!! <P>Black Thought ( I feel so....like I should be calling you something else...), Do you have any suggestions on how to shop my demo and not get screwed???<P>Peace and Balance Always!!<P>Sanifu
