    Young Dro Hear Me Cry for Throwback Thursday

    Welcome to another Thursday as that mean we are closer to the weekend. My playlist this week consisted of a few mixtapes. Southern Smoke 16, DJ J-Boogie’s Heavy D tribute and a classic from DJ Cuttnice were all played. The Doctor’s Advocate from Game, G Code from Juvenile and T-Pain’s debut joint also made the list.

    The Game Doctor’s Advocate Turns 15 Years Old Today

    The Game has carved out a legendary career for himself in his almost 20 years in the rap game. In 2005, he dropped his debut project The Documentary and it’s one of the best albums I’ve ever heard. The Documentary went on to go triple platinum as it was released in January of 2005. Less than two years later, he dropped his second album Doctor’s Advocate. The first album was with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent through Aftermath and G-Unit Records. Between the two albums, there were a lot of drama between the Game and 50 Cent. The beef with them started with 50 Cent kicking The Game out of…

    2Pac Released His Debut Album 30 Years Ago Today

    Man time sure does fly by really fast, doesn’t it? We’ve celebrated the 25 year anniversary of Pac’s passing a couple of months ago. It’s hard to believe he dropped 2Pacalypse Now 30 years ago. To give you a broader view, he was recording this revolutionary album when he was 19-years-old. To put that in proper contents, listen to the rappers nowadays that’s in their late teens and early-20s, see the difference? I’m sure if you follow everything on my site, on Instagram, Twitter or know me personally, 2Pac is my all-time favorite. I mean you know it because I say it in all of my stuff. I’ll share a…

    2Pac Released His Makaveli Album 25 Years Ago Today

    What can I say about 2Pac that I haven’t said before; he’s the greatest musician of all-time to me. Despite his passing over 25 years ago, he’s still my biggest idol next to my father. For me, he wasn’t just another rapper or entertainer, but someone that was speaking for me. Like Pac, I’m very outspoken, especially when it comes to social issues or being the voice for people who’s scared to say something. Seeing he passed away on September 13, 1996 I didn’t think he would put out any more music, but I was wrong. Less than two months after he passed, his classic Makaveli album was released. For…

    Piece of Mind from Tela Released 25 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 25 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…

    It’s hard to believe that Wale has been on the scene ever since 2009. Wale dropped his first album in November of 2009, and it was called Attention Deficit. Unfortunately, he parted ways with his label but was scooped up by Rick Ross and Maybach Music Group. Almost two years to the day, Wale released his second album and MMG debut. Ambition was the name and it featured Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Ne-Yo, Big Sean, Kid Cudi, Miguel & Jeremih. Lotus Flower Bomb was released prior to the album, and it featured Miguel. Lotus Flower Bomb was a success as it was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap…
