    Jaheim Ghetto Love Released 20 Years Ago Today

    Jaheim hit the scene more than 20 years ago and he had a very distinct voice. His voice separated him from pretty much any other R&B singer during that time. If you follow the Motown sound, his voice would definitely fit into that mold. Jaheim released Ghetto Love 20 years ago today, which was his debut. Ghetto Love went on to sell over a million records and put him in the forefront of singers. Ghetto Love was accompanied with 3 really good singles. Could It Be, Just in Case and Anything featuring R&B group Next. The only other major feature for Ghetto Love besides Next was from Lil’ Mo. Could…

    New Jack City Soundtrack Turns 30 Years Old Today

    New Jack City is one of my favorite movies of all-time. The movie was released 30 years ago and it’s still one of those that never get old. Just like every other great movie from the 90s, we always waited for the soundtrack. Above the Rim, Waiting to Exhale, I’m Bout It and many more were classics that came out in the 90s. The New Jack City Soundtrack turns 30 years old today. The New Jack City Soundtrack was a good mixture of hip hop and R&B. Keith Sweat, Ice-T, Queen Latifah, Color Me Badd, 2 Live Crew and Johnny Gill appeared on the soundtrack. New Jack City Soundtrack debuted…

    Today Marks 25th Anniversary of All Eyez on Me by 2Pac

    If anyone is familiar with my website or follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you know how much I love music and how much I’ve idolized 2Pac. On February 13, 1996 just a few months after he was released from prison, Pac dropped his monumental, double album All Eyez on Me. Everyone was anticipating the new album after he released his classic, Me Against the World while he was in jail and everyone really wanted to know what he had to say. I remember it was my senior year of high school when the album dropped and I checked into school late because the neighborhood record shop released the…

    Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood Turns 25

    Back in the 90s, we were really spoiled when it came to music. We had some of the best hip hop and R&B music that continues to be celebrated till this day. Back then, the movie soundtracks were something to look for with so many classics being dropped. We had classics like Above the Rim, I’m Bout It, Friday, Murder Was the Case and Sunset Park. One of the craziest movies during that era was one featuring the Wayans Brothers. Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood was the movie and soundtrack. The Wu Tang Clan, Jodeci, Lost Boyz, Lil Kim, Mobb Deep,…
