Flashback Friday: All That – TLC

I don’t even know where to begin with this. If you don’t recall this show from your childhood, I feel bad for you. It brought out life lessons and it especially brought out laughs. 90’s kids shows were a glorious time. There were rare instances where the theme song stuck out way more than others. … Continue reading

Flashback Friday: Who’s Real (feat. Swizz Beatz & OJ Da Juiceman) – Jadakiss

After silently releasing a standout album, Top 5 Dead or Alive, earlier this year, our Flashback Friday is from Jadakiss‘ 2009 album, The Last Kiss, with “Who’s Real.” Serving as an anthem for many of that year, “Who’s Real” will always have a place in our playlists and headphones. Besides, what line is more relatable than “Who’s … Continue reading

Flashback Friday: Organ Donor – DJ Shadow

Once upon a time, DJs actually played their music. Crazy right? Not really, there are some out there who still do (Word to A-Trak, Craze, ƱZ, plus more).

Beenie Man had made a name for himself in Jamaica long before he made a splash on the American charts, and actually created an earlier version of “Girls … Continue reading

Flashback Friday: Icy (feat. Jeezy) – Gucci Mane

For this week’s Flashback Friday, we decided to post the beginnings of both Jeezy and Gucci mane by highlighting their song, “Icy.” The single served as one of Jeezy’s introductions to rap as well as Gucci Mane’s first big hit. The two had a falling out not long after the song was released so, though we won’t … Continue reading

Flashback Friday: Still Fly – Big Tymers

SOURCE: BIGTYMERSVEVO There was upon a time in the rap/hip-hop world where over-sized jumpsuits were a thing. Where you could actually groove to the music, not just turn up. One thing remains constant, how much money you have and how much you spend. That seems to never change. Birdman aka Number 1 Stunna aka Baby … Continue reading
