Throwback Thursday

on November 19, 2009

Happy Thursday friends!!!!

here’s a mix of some throwbacks on this fine Thursday. I took a few skips on the iPod to find this one. This is one of the first really long collabo tracks I can remember. and its classic–would I give you anything else?

I mean can it get any better than De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, Monie Love and Queen Latifah?

NATIVE TONGUES GOT RHYMES GALORE!!! that was one of my favorite lines in the song. LOL

“soon as he buy that wine, I just creep up from behind…”

One of the best using the “Between the Sheets” sample. This song is one you will ALWAYS get your two step on to when you hear it. makes you wanna party just like they are in the video….we gon’ do what we came to do, aint that right boo? TRUE!!!!!

“yeah nig what makes you different than the next nigga, seen you last week and you couldnt’ even SPEAK…” I still know this entire rap like its 1992. LOL Classic MJB, classic Grand Puba. “if you aint wit it then don’t waste your time at whats the 411, huh?”

“If I ruled the world and everything in it, sky’s the limit, I’d push a Q-4-5 Infinit…”  It Was Written is one of my favorite Nas albums.  Watching this video just makes me miss L Boogie even more, but already posted about that. moving on…

seriously LL doesn’t get a lot of props from most but this is one of my favorite hip hop songs EVER. I can’t even describe the feeling I get when this song  randomly comes on but it makes me hype in a way totally different than maybe a Back Dat Azz Up or other crunk songs. This was my so hype “I’ma just mean mug, rap the lyrics, and bop” song. Now many Jay classic invoke that in me, but this was the first. This video showed me what SWAG was before that word was ever in my vocabulary. If I play this song it automatically puts me in an “I can accomplish anything” mood. because well, I’m bad…

I got a gold name plate that says “I wish  you would”…

The baddest rapper in the history of rap itself…
I’m the best taking out all rookies, so forget Oreos, eat Cool J cookies!

    Out of all these, “If I Ruled the World” is my favorite, too. I was SUCH a Lauren stan. She was actually the only reason I liked the track, lol.
