Port of Miami 2 makes this his unprecedented 10th studio album and 13 years since his Port of Miami debut. After listening a couple of times, Ross came through once again.

    Da Brat Funkdafied for Music Monday

    Back on June 28th, Da Brat celebrated the 25th anniversary of her Funkdafied album. Da Brat became the first female MC to put out a platinum album. To me, Da Brat is one of the illest female rapper of all-time as she’s put out classics throughout her time. For the returning Music Monday, what better track to be featured than Funkdafied. Just like that album, the title track went platinum and it featured Jermaine Dupri. Funkdafied was one of the hottest tracks in the summer of 1994. If you recall 1994, that was an amazing year for hip hop. Funkdafied was featured on Disc 2 of my Golden Era of…

    Ghetto Mafia Draw the Line Released 25 Years Ago Today

    Before Ludacris, T.I., Jeezy or Gucci you had rappers like the Ghetto Mafia. While Outkast was getting all the props and deservedly so with their Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, Draw the Line dropped. The debut from Ghetto Mafia was well-received around here. This was around the time where Atlanta music was transitioning from bass and club music to gangsta and more lyrics. Everyday Thang in the Hood featured the late, great MC Breed helped solidify Ghetto Mafia. Having someone like MC Breed in your debut album was major. At the time, Breed and Ghetto Mafia were on the same label. Either way, Everyday Thang in the Hood was a smash hit. While the…
