Notorious Big Juicy for Throwback Thursday

It was just announced that the Notorious Big will be inducted into the 2020 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame. This is very deserving as the Notorious Big was one of the greatest rappers of all-time. It’s hard to believe that he’s been gone for almost 23 years. Ready to Die was his first album and it was a certified classic that’s still talked about till this day. A couple weeks after passing, his Life After Death album dropped and it was another classic. The Notorious Big is one of my favorite rappers ever and he’s been included on many personal mixes. ...

Q-Tip Vivrant Thing for Throwback Thursday

Once again, we have arrived at another Thursday, which makes it a step closer to the weekend. One of the albums that were in heavy rotation this weekend was the Amplified album from Q-Tip. As many of you know, Q-Tip was part of the legendary A Tribe Called Quest. Tribe put out classics like Midnight Marauders and The Low End Theory. In 1999, Q-Tip released his first solo album and it was great as expected. Many people don’t know that Q-Tip is responsible for producing a lot of great records also. Amplified was released towards the end of 1999 ... [read more]

First off, Happy New Year to everyone out there. I’m hoping your 2020 will be full of blessings and prosperity. We’re going to open this year with Gang Starr as our Throwback Thursday. For the last couple days, I’ve been listening to their new album, One of the Best Yet. When the new single dropped Family and Loyalty featuring J. Cole, it felt like a breath of fresh air. Gang Starr is one of my favorite hip hop duos and the voice of Guru is heavenly. Unfortunately, it’s going on 10 years since the late, great Guru passed away. For the featured ... [read more]

Second Half of 2019 Throwback Thursday

It’s hard to believe that 2019 will be history in a few short days. What’s even crazier is that we’re entering another decade. I’m hoping you all had a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones. With this being the final Throwback Thursday, we like to do a playlist. At the end of June, we put out the First Half of 2019 playlist. We can’t do one without the other, so we’ve put the second half on a playlist also. I’m pretty sure you’ll find something to your liking with this one. We’ve touched some hip hop and we also got some classic R&B ... [read more]

The Legendary Z Ro Still My Life for Throwback Thursday

One of the most slept-on rappers in my opinion is him. Z-Ro has been called the 2Pac of the South and a member of the Screwed Up Click. He has been in the game over 20 years and put out countless projects over the years. He’s put out over 20 solo projects and countless collaborative and compilation joints. He was a mainstay on Rap-A-Lot Records for about 10 years. For my Throwback Thursday, we’re going back to the year 2000 and his second album. Z Ro vs. The World was the album and it was the first time hearing his music. If you have heard or ... [read more]
