    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…

    Best of 1988 Hip Hop for Mixtape Friday

    We have finally arrived at Friday once again, so you know what that means? It’s time for another Mixtape Friday and I’m hoping all my old-school hip hop heads will enjoy it. After traveling back to the 90s with Suave House Records last week, we’re going to the 80s. As far as the 80s go, we’re going to the year of 1988. By all accounts, this was the year of the original Golden Age of Hip Hop. Eric B & Rakim, Slick Rick, EPMD, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy, N.W.A. and Boogie Down Productions all dropped classics. This was the era that made me fall in love with hip hop.…
