OUCH!!! Those poor 44-7's, I guess he is needle dropping, however when DJ Aladdin did it back in '89 it wasn't quite like this.

Yep, you're supposed to needle drop with your hand laying on the turntable so you can be quick and light on the drop.

Reminded me of a Q performance vid where he swaps the needle for what I think is a beat to shit one, then rubs it back and forth on top of the record to make this güiro/shaker type sound.

Oh i understand the concept, i just didn't think dropping your needle from 20 feet up was a good idea.

Aladdin took the artform to the next level when he toured with Ice T...QBert's "Rock the Bells" routine always reminds me of him..

The guy who's needle dropping needs to chillout lol...even a cat would do a better job
