Kickin’ It

14 Apr

There is something about beautiful early Spring days that make me crave old school NY rap songs.

I haven’t been able to do the subway stairs with my boot just yet and I’ve really, really missed taking the train.  “Watch the Closing Doors” by I.R.T. (Interboro Rhythm Team) at least provides me with an aural trip up the entire 1/9 train, as it used to be known.  Last stop, all off, Harlem U.S.A.!

And here’s Kurtis Blow’s thoroughly awesome “The Breaks”….because, well, all my limitations are the breaks.  But at least when I have this blasting in my ears, they don’t bother me as much.
