    Makaveli Hail Mary for Throwback Thursday Featuring the Outlawz

    Makaveli 2 and 3 were on my playlist for this past week. If you’re old enough to remember, those Makaveli tapes were in high demand.  After Pac passed away, a lot of his unreleased music was leaked as part of the Makaveli series. As we all know, the official Makaveli album dropped a couple months after he passed away. My Throwback Thursday track is from the album, Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory. The album had several gems on it, but the featured track is none other than Hail Mary. Hail Mary is a spooky and dark track, plus it was accompanied with a video. The video depicted Pac rising…

    Mixtape Friday is the Best of Throwback Thursday for 2018

    It’s hard to believe that we’re about to enter a new year. 2019 is right around the corner and now it’s time to gear up for more challenges as we head into another year. Before that, let’s find something to celebrate about. The first thing you need is some music and that’s what I’m here for. While scrolling on my site I couldn’t believe I haven’t done a Mixtape Friday in well over two years. This year I’m planning on doing one every week. My Throwback Thursday was poppin’ throughout the year and hopefully that’ll continue also. With this being the final weekend of 2018, why not bring back Mixtape…

    UGK Throwback Thursday Tell Me Something Good

    If you’re from the south, then you know that the Ridin’ Dirty is one of the most influential projects ever. For some, that album was the first time they got a chance to vibe to a UGK project. There are others that didn’t realize who they were until the Big Pimpin track with Jay-Z. With me, my first chance to listen to them was their major debut album, Too Hard To Swallow. While many think of Pocket Full of Stones when it comes to the album, my favorite track was Tell Me Something Good. This week I’m highlighting UGK for Throwback Thursday and that’s the featured track. A couple days…

    Keep Ya Head Up for Throwback Thursday by 2Pac

    Last month, we all celebrated the 25th anniversary of 2Pac releasing his second album. Brenda’s Got A Baby caught people’s attention from his first album, 2Pacalypse Now. After that album, Pac was on top of the world as he was gearing up for his movie, Juice. If that wasn’t enough, Pac cemented his legacy even more by releasing my Throwback Thursday track. Keep Ya Head Up was a track that my grandmothers loved and that says a lot. This is one of my favorite tracks, not only from Pac, but one of my all-time favorite tracks. Keep Ya Head Up has earned classic marks from many people since it was…

    Throwback Thursday 7/30/2015

    One of the most underrated rappers and one of my favorite, Mac is celebrating his 38th birthday today. Hopefully, this will be the last one he have to celebrate locked up because there’s evidence of his innocence and he may be released from the murder conviction about 15 years ago. Since today is his birthday, why not feature him for Throwback Thursday and the track is off his Wold War III album that was released the day after my 22nd birthday. The featured track is called Battle Cry, which is another one of deep tracks and one I know you’ll enjoy. Mac, along with probably Fiend, who was featured last…

    Throwback Thursday 7/16/2015

    Once again while riding around listening to some CDs I was listening to the Murder was the Case Soundtrack and there were so many hits on this soundtrack. This soundtrack had so many stars on it from Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Dogg Pound, Dr. Dre & Ice Cube, DJ Quik, Jodeci and many others. For my Throwback Thursday I chose What Would U Do from the Dogg Pound, but I couldn’t go wrong with any track from that soundtrack. Between 1994-1995, Kurupt & Daz was probably the hottest duo because everything they put out was great. Check out the video below then leave a comment in the section below to…

    My Throwback Thursday this week is from one of the greatest R&B groups from the 90s and it’s Jodeci. On this day 24 years ago, they dropped their debut album Forever My Lady and I still remember loving this album despite being only 13 years old when it dropped. They dropped their final album in 1996, which went platinum and didn’t drop another album until this year, it’s called The Past, The Present, The Future.

    Throwback Thursday 5/21/2015- Biz Markie

    My Throwback Thursday is from the Diabolical Biz Markie and his huge hit, Just A Friend. The track is featured on his The Biz Never Sleeps album, one that I remember having the tape back in the day. My dad bought me this tape a couple of weeks after I turned 12 years old and I still remember the featured track and Spring Again. When people mention MCs from the Golden Era like Rakim, Kane, Slick Rick, KRS-One, EPMD and many others, they tend to forget Biz Markie, but I always have and will give him his props. Check out the track below and let me know what you think…

    My Throwback Thursday is from BG, formally of Cash Money Records. He’s serving time in prison, but before that he was my favorite of the entire Cash Money/Hot Boys click back in the day. BG was dropping albums before he was 16 and basically kept the same style the entire time. He was dropping really good albums like Chopper City, It’s All On U Vol 1 & 2. The track featured is off It’s All On U Vol. 1 that was released in 1997, it features the Big Tymers and it’s called Get your Shine On.
