    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…
