Gee's Up

I think you need love, baby!

Dionne Warwick - I Think You Need Love

Jim Jones feat Max B. - Gee's Up

World Renowned. . . . Roc-A-Fella, Holla!

All I know is that Reg Tilsley was a composer. And this is from his orchestra!

Everybody hate on Cam because he rhymes like he got Dr. Seuss books piled up in the studio. . . but that boy can spit! And this track was like, in my opinion, the epitome of spittin that hot shit. Killa went IN on this thang!

Play 'em like April 1st
Right before I slide off
It could be March 2nd
Sound like July 4th. . .


Reg Tilsley Orchestra - Warlock

Cam'ron feat. Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel

All Girls Cheat

Ain't that the truth. . .

Philippe Wynne was born in Detroit, Michigan. Although he began as a gospel singer, he was soon drawn to R&B. Wynne was originally a solo act, but it was as lead singer of The Spinners where he gained most of his fame. Unfortunatey, Wynne passed away in 1984 at the age of 43 from a heart attack.

Lol, don't he look like he could be Shawty Lo pop?

Love Changes

Mary J. and Jamie rocked this joint.

Mother's Finest is an interracial rock group from Atlanta. So all that "experimentation" you see coming out of Atlanta, with the likes of Cee-Lo, the Dungeon Family, etc. . . just know that it's nothing new. Atlanta has pushed the musical envelope for many, many decades.

I Too Am Wanting To Smile

Syreeta was born Rita Wright and would eventually become Mrs. Stevie Wonder. They collaborated on Syreeta's first album, Stevie Wonder Presents Syreeta, but it was her work with Leon Ware on her second album One to One which showed her writing skills.

G-Unit - Smile

I Cry

Millie Jackson was Lil Kim before Kimberly Jones was even thought of. She's a trendsetter for female artists, and a lot of them jack her style without even knowing it! Just google her and check out her album covers. . . especially Back To The Sh*t.

Don't Let Him Down Foxy

Anytime I have a chance to post some Willie Hutch, please believe I will take that opportunity. The sample for this Freeway** comes in the second half of this song (@ about the 2:24 mark), but it's such an incredible song, I didn't want to break it up. . . And then I get to post a pic of fine ass Pam Grier!? C'MON!

Willie Hutch - Theme of Foxy Brown/Overture of Foxy Brown

Freeway feat. Scarface - Baby Don't Do It

**Is it safe to say that Free might be one of the most underrated rappers of this millenium? I feel like he was the only one on the Roc that was around so much success, yet spit like he was still hungry. . . Hell, I think Sigel got a lil lax and that's why we got The Solution after the gem that was The B. Coming. . . .

Forever More Crazy

Enchantment is an R&B group out of Detroit which was active during the late 70s and early 80s. However, they never really got their big break, and stayed pretty much a local act. I personally think they are underrated. I got "Forever More" on one of my slow jams playlists. . . .

Smoke Wit Me

I used to be a huge Real World fan, and the peak of that whole show was the Hawaii season. My man Teck held it down, and he actually branched out and did the acting thing and the music group. I saw this video on Uncut (RIP), and thought it was hot, so here yall go!

Hurt Me Soul

I'm not a huge Lupe fan, but if I were ever forced to choose between liking him and not, this track would put me over to the positive. . . . It's one of the best odes to your first love:


What constitutes a prostitute is the pursuit of profit. . . .

Watch For The Hook

Never has ev-er-ry member
Of one crew been so diverse
Tryin to outdo the last verse
That i birthed that is my curse. . .

No matter what people say about the quality of southern rap, the south really does produce some spitters. Not everybody does snap music or comes up with the next weak ass dance. . . Some rappers down south really do the damn thang! Right, Three Stacks?

Merry Clayton - Southern Man

Por Que Yo Te Amo (Because I Love You)

My spanish really is on point.

Ayo, just listening to this track reminds me just how nice Pun was. Like, I know Pun was an incredible lyricist, but I sometimes forget just how nice he was. Losing Pun was just as big of a loss as Big and Pac.

50's Ghetto Qu'ran

This is from 50's unreleased debut on Columbia Records. It's the track that Irv Gotti and them said 50 was snitchin on. . . . but i don't see what they talkin about . . .

Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross - Stop, Look, Listen

50 Cent - Ghetto Qu'ran

Tell Me What You Want From Me

It's wild, because ANYTHING from late 90s Bad Boy is legitimately a classic. Not only where they putting out the crazy singles that were being blasted from every radio, but the actual albums were top notch, too!

Remember them days. . . . when people actually put out quality albums? Sean just needs to make the rest of 08 nostalgic and just change his name one more time back to "Puffy". . . .

Curtis Mayfield - Right On For Darkness
