haven’t been in the mood to write, still kinda slow motion from my holiday. just getting back in the swing of things buttttttttt…
y’all know I love him. and he loves me back (he just doesn’t know it yet!)
happy 40th birthday to my GOAT, Shawn Corey Carter!!!
some of my favorites for the occasion:
Feelin It: my absolute favorite song by him. click the link for a vintage Hov video
Politics As Usual: second fave from Reasonable Doubt “you aint seen money in your life, when it comes to the cheese yall like 3 blind mice”
Hey Papi: “even if she don’t understand the flow, she understand the dough”…nuff said
It’s Alright: holla back! forgot there was a video for this….check it. Jay looks soooo young! *sigh* my baby’s getting up there.
Where I’m From: “…niggas pull your card, and argue all day who’s the best emcees: Biggie, Jay Z and Nas” favorite from my Vol. 1 classic music, good memories, Vol. 1 is a personal favorite of mine.
Do it Again: peep the go go influence for the song concept–Overnight Scenario anyone?! Aww, watching this considering the “beef” with Beans now makes me nostalgic. This song reminds me of all my up top dudes from VSU. Civic Center classic right here!
Allure: one of his best songs ever. Its in my top…10. hard for me to have a top 5 for Jay.
Lucifer: another great track from Black Album. dopeness from ‘Ye
Girls Girls Girls Remix: some of my favorite wordplay from my dude
Best of Me Remix: “have an affair, act like an adult for once”, not his song but a dope verse, nonetheless. click link for the video–I wanted a Carolina jersey dress so bad! aint have nary curve to fill one out though, lol
Kingdom Come: goes hard on the cd of the same title. this CD grew on me in a big way… “not only NYC, I’m hip hop’s savior, so after this flow you might owe me a favor…”
My 1st Song: more from Black Album. great way to end a CD
Brooklyn’s Finest: you know I had to include the duet with my boy BIG.
You’re Only a Customer: “you’re walking in the presence of hustlers…” banger from Streets is Watching
Come and Get Me: prob the hardest track on Vol. 3 “no kids but trust me I know how to raise a gun”
U Don’t Know: another favorite on my top Jay songs. gets me so hype its ridiculous
A Dream: one of the few I digged on BP2 “Hov remind yourself, nobody built like you, you define yourself”
Roc Boys: true party anthem! this was a dope video too.
Soon You’ll Understand: love this song, there was only a couple I did like from ROC La Familia….I used to play this song over and over. oh, to be in college
Jigga My Nigga: another favorite, from that Ruff Ryders Vol 1–CLASSIC CD!
Thank You: “you’re far too kind…this is your song, not mine…”
ok his catalog is huge, but I tried to pull some of my faves from every CD. I purposely missed some of the “bangers” but this here is MY LIST! and off the dome AT THAT–so give ya girl a lil credit here, HOLA HOVITO!
enjoy! happy Friday! 🙂
