With the recent groundbreaking for the M-1 light rail system along Woodward Avenue, it seems appropriate to share this c. 1927 photograph taken from a window on the northeast corner of Woodward Avenue and Grand Boulevard overlooking streetcars, cars, and pedestrians along Woodward to the south.

THIS TRACK IS CALLED “RANDOM POSSE CUT”
THANK YOU: RUFIO JONES, E-FAV, KOPELLI, STRYFE, JAY THE GRATE, SEAN UPPERCUT, DOC WAFFLES, AND NOLAN THE NINJA.
i wanted to put a bunch of rappers i knew onto one song. i had a beat and no topic. i had no idea how it would turn out. just wanted to have some fun and make a song.
i alerted all the potential players and everybody was pretty eager to get down.
the only stipulation i gave to the emcees was to base the beginning of their rhymes on the previous rapper’s ending.
because there was so many people, it was slightly difficult to get everybody in at the same time BUT, the majority of the recording was done over a few days. nobody rewrote anything but a couple of us (one of them being me) re-recorded our verses to clean up the delivery.
other than that, everybody pretty much knocked out the writing and recording very quickly.
rufio jones set it off. he later apologized (for no reason). ask either one of us why if you’re curious.
this counts as the first collaboration between myself and doc waffles, e-fav, and nolan the ninja.
