Ricky B Classics

Posted by emynd on | November 4, 2008 | 6 Comments

Ricky B has made some of my favorite Bounce songs of all time, but I know very little about him. As far as I can tell he’s from the 7th Ward and both “Y’all Holla” and “Shake Fa Ya Hood” on the “Mobo Click” album on Mobo Joe Records which was one of New Orleans’s most important local independent labels in the mid-to-late-90s. “Y’all Holla” is an absolutely classic joint that garnered some attention outside of New Orleans (most notably Houston) while “Shake Fa Ya Hood” has a very similar call and response aesthetic. I still play “Y’all Holla” out in clubs frequently today and even if folks have never heard it before, the song always gets a good response. Some of you will probably notice that the same Rebirth Brass Band horn sample in “Y’all Holla” has been sampled repeatedly throughout the history of Bounce. Likewise, I also decided to upload Ricky B’s “Let’s Go Get ‘Em” which is a Second Line rap song which I believe he did with the Rebirth Brass Band which I found out (thanks to the commenter below) features John Mac Band (Local High School) .

    “Let’s Go Get ‘Em” features John Mac Band (Local High School) not Rebirth.

    I just found your blog and I’m real excited about what you’re doing here. This blog is gonna be central to getting me familiar with a form of hip-hop that I’m still getting to know.

    On the flip, my partner and I run a blog called Democracy and Hip-Hop, based here in NOLA as well. We focus not just on Bounce or New Orleans hip-hop per se, but on all the various manifestations of hip-hop nationally and internationally, but we’ve found Bounce to be one of the most dynamic aspects of hip-hop all around.

    We threw you up on the blogroll to help get the word out. Thanks for this and be sure check us out and comment.

    I’m a NOLA dj, wondering if you have the radio edit of shake fa ya hood, the one where he doesn”t say “motherfucking” thirty million times.

    Would it be possible to reupload let’s go get em? The file’s not on zippyshare or anywhere that I can find, I’d really like to hear it.
    Thanks for the great music
