    The Resurrection from the Geto Boys Turns 25 Years Old

    The Geto Boys is one of the illest groups to ever pick up a mic. They first hit the scene back in the late-80s and earned their first platinum plaque in 1991. We Can’t Be Stopped was the album and many have ranked it as one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. We Can’t Be Stopped is also known for the album cover as they exit the hospital. This is where Bushwick Bill shot himself in the eye. Speaking of Bill, rest in peace to him seeing he passed away in June of 2019. Two years later, the Geto Boys released their classic, Til Death Do Us Part. The…

    T.I. King Album Dropped 15 Years Ago Today

    It’s hard to believe that it’s going on 20 years since T.I. dropped I’m Serious. T.I. is still putting out music as he released 11th solo album, The Libra last year. The Libra was a dope project and proved why he’s a legend and one of the best to ever do it. 15 years ago today, T.I. released King which was his fourth project. King was the follow-up to Urban Legend, which was dope. Of course, Urban Legend came after Trap Muzik, which I think is a flawless album. T.I. was definitely on a run during this time because King cemented his legacy in my opinion. Trap Muzik, Urban Legend…

    2Pac Until the End of Time Turns 20 Years Old Today

    It’s hard to believe that on September 13th of this year will mark the 25th anniversary of Pac passing. Before his passing, Pac released 4 solo albums, Thug Life and countless appearances. One thing you hear about Pac after his passing was his crazy work ethic. More music came about from Pac after death then he released while alive. One of those gems was his album, Until the End of Time. The double album was his seventh total and third posthumous release. Makaveli was the first and R U Still Down? (Remember Me) was the second. Until the End of Time debuted number one and it sold over 426,000 copies…

    The Coming From Busta Rhymes Turns 25 Years Old Today

    Busta Rhymes has been a staple of hip hop for 30 years now. Before we knew him as the legend he is today, he was a part of the Leaders of the New School. They released a pair of albums in the 1991 and 1993. Busta got his big break when he appeared on the smash-hit Scenario by Tribe Called Quest. Busta had the charisma and energy that people gravitated to. In 1996, he released his debut album, The Coming. Before that, he appeared on the Flava in Ya Ear Remix which was huge when it was released. The Coming eventually went platinum as his single, Whoo Hah! Got You…

    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…

    February 13, 1996 will always be one of the biggest days in hip hop history. 2Pac released his All Eyez On Me joint and the Fugees dropped the Score also. All Eyez On Me has been talked about ever since. The Score from the Fugees went on to sell over 20 million copies worldwide. Unfortunately, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef and Pras never recorded another album again. The Score has appeared on numerous greatest albums lists. The Fugees went on to win a Grammy for the Best Rap album also. Fu-Gee-La was their first single and it was released in December of 1995. Fu-Gee-La went on to go gold and people were…

    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,…
