    Boyz II Men Cooleyhighharmony Turns 30 Years Old Today

    Boyz II Men is one of the greatest R&B groups of all-time. This is not something being said now; it’s something I’ve always felt. Of course, they were discovered by Michael Bivins of New Edition fame. 30 years ago today, Boyz II Men released Cooleyhighharmony which was their debut album. The first single, Motownphilly dropped on the same day as the album. Motownphilly was a great, up-tempo track from the group and it earned them a top-5 position on Billboard. It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye was their second single off the album. The single rose to #1 and became their first gold selling single. For me, it was 2-for-2…

    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…
