Xihong Library '15

And we're back! It seems I say the same thing every year and I thank the same people... well it's true and I'll say it again. Thanks Klaus (Shaw Bros music identifying machine!), Killa (just havin my back on the music tip), M.Y. (for laying the foundation for future findings). This body of work wouldn't be what it is without these guys.

To my surprise, most of my links are dead. Ah well, I hope people got what they could get. This is really an outdated system now, but it is what it is. May the files live on...

Enjoy. Merry Christmas. Otherwise, happy holidays!



[Requested] Philly Underground - Crime Family Vols.2-5

Shout out to my man from back in the day DJ Ill-B for these Crime Family mixtapes. We used to trade these joints thru the mail back when I was in college 10+ years ago and I'd scoop them up almost everywhere I could find them... online, on the aves, the stands, from the backpackers, and sometimes directly from the artists themselves.

As far as I remember, Crime Family was Bumpy Johnson, Stacks, Legal, Chops, and Rucie. They did alot collabs with Major Figgas. It's funny, they have a few skits on volume 4 about haters and this product they sell called "Hate Block." That's basically the name of my blog... Hate-mbargo (stop hatin ...hate stoppage).



What Up My Ninja!? -Farther East Meets Far East- Video

So here's something a bit different... I'm not just about the music. I've made a few Shaw Bros video compilations. This is my latest and it's the one that "didn't make it" onto youtube. There really hasn't been a better alternative so I'll just share it here. It's an hour long (1.5GB) and I put a lot of work into it... too much for it not to be seen.

What Up My Ninja!? is basically a loose telling of Japan vs China through the lens and talents of the Shaws.

If you're a fan of the Venoms, be sure to check out my Lu Feng video too. And here's my page. Of course there's a Xihong video! These were strictly a labor of love... sometimes I think it would've been my dream job to be editor and sound guy for these. And it's not as though many of them need changing.

Last, if you've liked all the Xihong Library we've put together over the years... you'll definitely appreciate these vids for the music. Subscribe if you like them.


Until now, this one has only been seen by a handful of people.

-PS- Me and Klaus have made some tremendous progress on this year's Xihong Library. I don't think I'm gonna wait til the holidays to put it out like I normally would. We'll see...

Xihong Library 2014 - The Main Thing is to Stay Alive

I guess it can't be late if you didn't know it was coming? I've been so busy lately that I'm releasing my new Shaw Bros volume in the new year. The vast majority of this drop was compiled by my main man in Germany... Klaus (aka Chik Ming Klaus)... ie. "The main thing is to stay alive..."

I don't have the time like I used to... to really dig deep on these movies. We've found so much that most of my resources have been exhausted as far as the music and the films. Klaus picked it up a couple of years ago and has done a great service to the collection both as a compiler and an archivist. To refresh your memories, Klaus has MOST of the movies... at least 100 or 200 that I haven't seen, but I have the music or connects to the music.

Are we done?

No. BUT, it gets harder and harder as time goes on.

I offer a special thanks again to M.Y. in Japan for his super rare source findings. And I'd like to thank everyone who still keeps the library community alive (Killa, Retronic, the library forum, DJ Marcellus Wallace, and anyone still sharing the heat). If you're new to the music, the "community," or the films... know that I've long paid my dues and that I'm just doing this out of love. Enjoy.

I am still in need of some RCA SP music as well as miscellaneous DWLP/HMCSLP/RMSLP stuff.
