    Crime Boss Put Em Up for Throwback Thursday

    Welcome to another Thursday as that mean we are closer to the weekend. My playlists this week consisted of a couple of Pac mixtapes, Mixtape Messiah 4 by Chamillionaire and Jaheim’s debut joint. Lil Jon Crunkest Hits, Hell on Earth from Mobb Deep and the New Jack City Soundtrack. Speaking of New Jack City, this week marks the 30th anniversary of the classic movie and soundtrack. The final album played was a joint effort from Lil Flip & Crime Boss. Crime Boss was one of the fixtures on Suave House Records along with 8Ball & MJG. In 1994, Crime Boss dropped the southern classic, All in the Game which is…

    On Top of the World Dropped 25 Years Ago by 8Ball & MJG

    8Ball & MJG are my favorite duo ever in the hip hop. They were introduced to the world with their classic debut, Comin’ Out Hard. The 9 tracks album had the perfect title because the project was hard. After buying Comin’ Out Hard I was instantly a fan of 8Ball & MJG. The following year, 8Ball & MJG dropped their On Tha Outside Lookin’ In joint. On Tha Outside Lookin’ In was a tremendous album and one that I absolutely love. This is one that I’ve always remembered because it was released on my 17th birthday. The next year 8Ball & MJG came back out with their 3rd album under…

    Listen and Stream 10 Classic Suave House Records Albums

    Death Row and No Limit Records have always been my two favorite labels ever. My third one would have to be Suave House Records. Suave House Records was discovered by Tony Draper back in 1990. They housed artists like 8Ball & MJG, South Circle, Crime Boss, Tela and Mr. Mike. In the summer of 1993 is when I first discovered them when they dropped 8Ball & MJG’s debut album. Comin Out Hard was a southern classic and it put Suave House Records on the map. From 1993 to 1998, Suave House Records released several classic albums. After disappearing for a while, the label dropped more music, which included an album…

    Piece of Mind from Tela Released 20 Years Ago Today

    8Ball and MJG, Crime Boss, South Circle and Tela made Suave House one of my favorite record labels ever. On this day 20 years ago, Tela released his debut called Piece of Mind. I remember the first time I heard Tela, which was on the South Circle album and the track Unsolved Mysteries that featured 8Ball. Although I didn’t know much about Tela; seeing he was down with Suave House I bought the album the day it dropped. Let’s say that this album didn’t disappoint at all and if anything, it exceeded my expectations. The album featured Crime Boss, Mr. Mike, 8Ball & MJG and a few others. Despite not…
