Old School Friday - 9th Grade? Jeah!!

1990 was soooo long ago. My God was it a long time ago. But I remember it like it was just yesterday. I was a fresh faced 13 year old that didn't know shit. I missed the bus first day of school and couldn't find any of my classes. And I wore a black and gold polka dot shirt. Hey Kwame was big so get off my nuts. Oh the memories...

Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby

You can front if you want, but you know damn well you were bumping this. You know damn well you were like, "That white boy can dance." So I don't even want to hear it.

LL - Around The Way Girl

Ah, the last LL album I bought. Although, I can't say I want a chick with a Fendi bag AND a bad attitude. Take the bag. Leave the attitude. The funniest thing about this video is how much clothing the chicks are wearing. Compared to today's standards, they might as well be wearing cossacks.

Suzanne Vega - Tom's Diner

"Instead I pour the milk." Nope, the lyrics don't make sense to me either. But the beat is HYPNOTIC.

Ice Cube - Who's The Mack

Damn, Cube is letting his Soul Glo like a mug ain't he? Glad he came to his senses on Death Certificate. You gotta love the old school Raiders cap. Every dude who wore one thought he was g'd up. Too bad his mom picked him up from school in a Beamer.

Fresh Prince Intro

"Hey holmes smell ya later." Hey who knew?

Michel'le - Something In My Heart

Hey did you hear that Michel'le was in the hospital? Yeah, she had something in her heart! Seriously, I'll be here all week. Try the veal, it's marvelous.

DJ Quik - Tonite

"Giving 'em something they can roll on." Nuff said...

You basically just went for the Rainbow Coalition mix for Ole school friday. but I ain't mad at'cha...all these joints were hot.

Absolutely agree on Vanilla. People can hate now but I know they were spitting out the words back in the day....

For years, I didn't know the name of that Suzanne Vega song at all.

I'm not even going to try to play like I wasn't with "Ice Ice Baby." If there's any positive that I can draw from it now, I can say that the sample introduced me to Queen and David Bowie.
