I must add a video for one of the best MCs to ever pick up a mic. He is one of my favorites of all time. Tragically, we lost him 12 yrs ago today. Gone...but never forgotten. RIP Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G aka Biggie Smalls

KYLE!!! You know how to get a Monday started off right!
"When ya first walked in, I ain't know what to think, cause ya grabbed the microphone like ya booty don't stink!"
Man, you don't know how many times my sister and I drooled over this dude in that green and yellow outfit.
Bushwick Bill is always funny looking.
And A Tribe Called Quest, dude! Q-Tip can still get it!
And every time I hear that Brand Nubian song, I think about the episode of Martin when he fought, Tommy Hearns.
"GINAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! I don't wanna fight no mo'!"

The first one with every song I can relate to
Pretty damn good.

Are we going to act like we didnt notice LL slamming the phone down hard busted my mans ear?

omgosh I love it!!! okay, this is how old I am: I STILL have some mix tapes that I made way back in the day with LL, Geto Boys, NWA, BBD, Toni Tony Tone, Babyface, tons more. My Mind Playing Tricks on Me is still one of my all-time faves - I still go around saying the words.

Charles said... killin em with that Tribe!!!

ShellyShell said...

Every one of these are bangers! They just did an entire lunch mix to BIG!

The Jaded NYer said...

ok... every single one has the Jaded-Latina-but-damn-near-Black stamp of approval.

All of these must stay in heavy rotation all the time, remind these damn kids what REALLY moves the crowd.

And I don't care if I sounded old just then!!

Tha L said...

Dang Kyle, so glad i stopped by the spot today, it's been awhile! You hit the nail right on the head today with these...take a sista back! Lawd knows I used to love me some Kool Moe Dee (in all his ugliness LOL!).

@ Emily
If you still have mixtapes of those artists then that means that you're 'round my age. And we ain't old! LOL

@ Charles
'Preciate it, bruh

@ ShellyShell
We'll always love Big Poppa!

@ Jaded Santana
I agree with you. This is good music. Timeless for people of our generation. We could be 50 yrs old and if They Reminisce Over You comes on...we're rushing to the dance floor! Period!

@ L
Thanks for comin thru. I know how busy folks are so I always appreciate the luv

Mann, I saw Moe Dee last year. He is HUGE!!! LOL

Darius T. Williams said...

GREAT job - loving the way you're starting off the week.

The F$%K it List said...

Loved the mix! Ain't nothing like Warning to shut a party down.

I did my BIG tribute today too. Can't help but miss that dude.
