[LISTEN]Throwback Thursday: 5-Step- Dru Hill

So…as I am going through my Spotify trying to find my selection for the Throwback Thursday and 5 Steps by Dru Hill decided to jump out and hit “The Quan”on my speakers. Y’all can act like Dru Hill didn’t have hits for days in the 90’s. 

Sisqó, Jazz, Nokio, and Woody(original members, I don’t f*ck wit those other stranger ass members) held us down in the 90’s. Even solo Sisqó had a run. How many remember every male signing group in high school performing 5 Steps at the pep rallys or talent shows. Dru Hill is from an era of R&B, where you actually had to be able to sing. Check it out below:

[LISTEN] Throwback Thursday-Get It Together-702 

 

Kinfolk I had to dig deep into the crates for this one here! The Throwback Thursday song is Get It Together by 702. This song right here is and will always be my shit! 

Kameelah sang her GOTDAMN face off! Oh and the other girls too lol! This song made you want to get your shit together! Even if weren’t having relationship issues. We need more girl groups they are virtually nonexistent since Danity Kane couldn’t work it out! Ah well I guess I’ll just reminisce. Check it out below:

[LISTEN] Throwback Tuesday: Gotta Man-Eve

  
Kinfolk in honor of Eve’s Burfday, the Throwback Tuesday song is Gotta Man. The song is pulled from Eve’s debut album, Let There Be Eve Ruff Ryder’s First Lady, released September 14, 1999. Eve hit the scene at a time when each record label/crew had a First Lady.

The self proclaimed “pit bull in a skirt” held her own on male dominated Ruff Ryder’s Record with the likes of DMX and The Lox. This song used to be my shit, and the album was also good also. Take a trip to down memory lane to the golden era of female rap.

[LISTEN] Throwback Tuesday-Summer Rain- Carl Thomas

1.1

The Throwback Tuesday song is Summer Rain by Carl Thomas. The song comes from Carl’s debut album, Emotional. I really can’t be responsible for what I do when this song comes. You can expect me to sing at the top of my lungs in full voice and not give a damn what people in other care think! Emotional was a phenomenal album, I can still listen to that album from top to bottom without skipping a track. Carl is said to be releasing a new album in the future. I am interested to see what it will sound like. Until then check out Summer Rain below.
