Im watchin you too said...

How about those Philadelphia Eagles

Just O said...

I been telling my boys that The Manning brothers are some of best "regular season" qb'

And in my opinion, Foreign Exchange had the best cd of 2008.

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs said...

Hey Brother!

I've been hearing Sistah Mika talking about Foreign Exchange...I like!!!!!!!!

Nas and Lauryn is a hit as well and of course Special did the thing on this mixtape!!!!

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

that special ed is a good look

Queen of My Castle said...

I used to LOVE that Special Ed song. Anything featuring Lauryn Hill and/or Nas are sure to be worth listening to, IMO.

Nice list, Mr. CBW. LOL

@ Im watchin you too
Welcome 2 the 12th Planet. Make sure that you come back. We have a good time over here. We're here every day...hangin out like wet clothes

I've been impressed with the Eagles. They went from benching McNabb to the NFC Championship game.

@ O
I agree! Foreign Exchange was the best cd of '08!!

@ Keisha the Kitten
This video reminds me of how talented Lauryn Hill is. We really do miss her!

@ rawdawgbuffalo
Thanks, T! You can't go wrong with Ed!

12kyle said...

@ Queen
I think the whole world is waiting on the return of Ms.Hill. Hopefully she'll be back soon. *sigh*

Thank youuuuuuuu!

Charece said...

Aww did u out the Lauryn Hill joint up just for psych no, u know I was hype about that one Lauryn use to be my girl!

xcentricgem said...

The Panthers just broke my heart ...

ShellyShell said...

Foreign Exchange is hot!
LBoog come back to us! We miss you! The D can NOT be that good!
I got it made was such a hot song when it first came out!

On to Ballin.....GO UT! The Ohio State blew that game! It was theirs to win and they let dude get a first down and it was ova!
I think it should have been Florida and Texas in the National Championship game!

NFL....I'm indifferent right now. But I had a feelin that Philly was going to beat the Giants. Their season started going downhill after Plaxico became Doc Hollywood!

I'm a littled stunned by the Cardinals win. I think it will be the Eagles and the Steelers...PA is going to go crazy!

I'm not feelin NBA quite yet but my Tar Heels looked better this week after that loss to BC! Why is Roy Williams scared to call timeouts? Ugggg!

Damn, Tony Dundy is retiring! There goes another black coach!

Keith said...

Foreign Exchange is the truth!!

And thanks for Lauryn Hill...This is from back when she ruled the world. (What's up with her now? I heard she was supposed to be recording new material.)

I had a great weekend of Football man, sat in my house most of the day Saturday watching The Titans-
Ravens game and some of the Cardinals-Panthers game...I would have never imagined THAT outcome.

Yesterday ,of course I watched Eagles-Giants and our cross state rivals the Steelers and the Chargers. I had both of those games tagged right..I picked the Eagles and the Steelers. I didn't pick anybody for the Titans-Ravens
game..and I picked the Panthers over the Cardinals. Lost on that one.

Keith said...

I'm with Shelly Shell- This could turn out to be an All Pennsylvania
Super Bowl..Let me stop, I'm getting ahead of myself here.-lolol.

The Jaded NYer said...

*ignoring the football question*


I'm gonna check the Foreign Exchange song later at home, cuz I know a lot of people have been praising them lately.

The other three... how funny that they are in heavy rotation in my iTunes AND one of my Pandora stations?

And Skillz, man, I love his wrap ups... but I didn't watch The Wire ever so this won't make much sense to me lol

*still ignoring the football question*

Pocahontaz said...

AWWW MAN!!!...Special ED was the sexiest!

The Jaded NYer said...

@pocahontaz- I saw him in concert last summer and why was he STILL looking sexy?? Dude is aging very, very, very well!

*fans self*

Grover Tha Playboy said...

Lauren Hill was the shzzzt back in the day..She looks like one of my women.

12kyle said...

@ Charece
I luv me some Lauryn Hill!!! As you can see, you and I think alike!

@ xcentricgem
I don't think I've seen a worse performance than the one that Jake Delhomme put on the other night. He's gotta go!

@ ShellyShell
It's obvious that the D is THAT good! LoL

I really hate to see Coach Dungy retire. I don't think he'll coach again. He is a class act, tho!

@ Keith
Congrats to the Eagles! I'm not a fan but I've gotta pull for McNabb. He's been through a lot. He's the most underrated superstar in the NFL

@ Jaded Santana
You've never seen the Wire? Awwww man! That's the best thang on tv!

@ Poca
You just like him b/c he has that "good hair". Hmph! LoL

@ Jaded Santana
Ohhhhhh lawd

@ Grover the Playboy
Welcome to the 12th Planet. Make sure that you come back. We have a good time over here. We're here everyday like a stray cat!

She looked real good back then. The last time that I saw her...not so good!

Kay C, The Quiet Storm said...

Aww man, you listed Special Ed? Oh you went there. I am bobbing my head on most of these.

The mix tape Mondays be taking me back!!

clnmike said...

I am not familiar with Foreign Exchange, but the rest of that list was tight.

Beautifully.Conjured.Up said...

Anything with Lauryn is my ish.

dessex said...

Murder she wrote... That's like one of my all times favorite songs

Rich Fitzgerald said...

Man, I am copping that Foreign Exchange post haste. That was nice.

Rich Fitzgerald said...

In the voice of Lil John - What! Cln Mike isn't hip to Foreign Exchange. Then I don't feel so bad. Last week was the first I heard of them, although I was on to Phontay from Little Brother.

TravelDiva said...

Nice! My friends used to think Special Ed was "fine." I liked his music, but he wasn't my type.

If I ruled the world--classic!

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

I don't know about sports, but I used to love that Nas/Lauryn Hill song!

Rashan Jamal said...

Love the Foreign Exchange album.

Does Skillz only do rap ups now? That's the only think I hear from him. I remember when he was Mad Skillz back in the day. I had that first album.
