#TBT: 20 Movie Soundtrack Songs For The Culture


Kinfolk it’s Throwback Thursday! #TBT  I thought it would be fun to compile a list of songs from movie soundtracks that we know and love! Soundtracks have some of the most memorable songs. These songs bring back memories and are also some damn good songs! I have come up with a list of songs that I love from some of my favorite movies.  The list is in no particular order, and likely missing some songs. It took a long time to narrow it down to 20, but I did it. Let’s go!

Throwback Thursday: Party Don’t Stop-Mia X Featuring Master P & Foxy Brown


Kinfolks! It’s Throwback Thursday, and the song is Party Don’t Stop by Mia X featuring Foxy Brown. The song is from Unlady Like released in 1997.

The song dropped when No Limit Records was at its pinnacle, before Cash Money blew up! The song features Master P of course and my fav Foxy Brown. The song is southern hip-hop meeting east coast hip-hop at it’s best! Check it out:


Throwback Tuesday: Up Jumps The Boogie-Timbaland and Magoo Featuring Missy Elliott & Aaliyah 

We gon show you how we party! 

Kinfolks! The The Throwback Tuesday song is “Up Jumps da Boogie” which is the debut single by hip-hop duo Timbaland & Magoo, released on July 11, 1997, as the first single from their debut studio album, Welcome to Our World. The track features rapper/singer/producer/visonary Missy Elliott and the late R&B singer Aaliyah. 

This song has to be one my favorite songs from the 90’s Missy’s verse timeless and I can recite it word for word to this day! Aaliyah shined on the hook. Man listen this was the golden era of music! Missy, Timbaland, and Ginuwine really need to get back together again and work together!

[WATCH]Throwback Thursday: Rain-SWV


Kinfolk! I was listening Bryson Tiller’s new album “True To Self” and he opened the album with a sample of ‘Rain’ from one of my favorite female R&B groups SMV. Take a trip back down memory lane with me and get into to some classic SMV.

[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.
