old school friday the 13th...

andrew's pick...
when andrew sent this over he made a good point. he said "How this song didn't blow when it came out is just beyond me. That's just how dope the game was during this era...you could make a song featuring Nas, Raekwon, Fat Joe, Big Pun and Jadakiss and it would fall on deaf ears." but as he said this i started thinking, "if all of these artist did a song together in todays game i think it would blow up"...just look at the south for example, they have crew song with everybody and their momma on it and you can't avoid it on the radio...if the the eastcoast, westcoast and midwest rappers did this maybe they would get more airtime in today game...just my thoughts...

fat joe. feat nas, big pun, jadakiss, and raekwon...john blaze

autumn's pick...
her pick wasn't an easy one to find so don't mind the soap opera at the beginning...however; her pick was a great video that shows the diversity of our blog...how she recovered this one from the crates is amazing...autumn has really been diggin' lately. this video proves there is always a lane for hip hop and r&b...oh yeah don't mind the kwest the mad lad video at the end either!!!
ill al skratch feat. brian mcknight...i'll take her

some of you may be to young to remember when mtv was the only video station on t.v. some of you may also be to young to remember when they didn't play rap until the weekends...well i used to watch mtv when headbangers ball was the best show they had (actually i think it was the only show)...i know i may lose points with this one but you can't blame me for liking this song it's a classic...

guns n roses...sweet child of mine

    Wow...G'N'R? Left field pick! But I like it, I mean, I guess I'm genetically inclined to enjoy Guns N Roses, right?

    Autumn's done it again though. Riddle me this: why were they Ill Al Skratch when it was two people? Why weren't they called Ill AND Al Skratch? Perplexing really!

    Also, Brian McKnight looks SUPER young here...
