Eric B. & Rakim - Juice (Know The Ledge)
"Black Gambino. Die like a hero." It's been 15 years, so we can be honest. Juice was a HORRIBLE movie. It's up there with Belly and the Shaft remake for worst of all time. Not even Pac could save it, as he goes completely off the rails in the third act. BUT, the soundtrack was pretty tight. And God MC hit us off with this little ditty, which was definitely the crown jewel.
TLC - What About Your Friends
Cross Fucking Colours. Like Kanye said, "Was I on that?" I had red jeans, purple jeans, orange jeans, and green jeans. I'm not especially proud of that particular time of my life, but hey we had fun. Which is what the girls were having in this video. Remember when music was fun?
Boyz II Men - Hard To Say Goodbye
If this song doesn't still get you, then you're a cold hearted bastard that doesn't deserve the oxygen that passes through your lungs.
Gangstarr - Ex-girl To The Next Girl
Guru basically gave me the philosophy that governs my life. You gotta keep it moving. If your main chick starts acting up, you just move on to the next. Thank you Guru.
NWA - Appetite For Destruction
The LAST NWA video ever.
Cypress Hill - Hand On The Pump
"Look at all of those funeral cars." I once thought Cypress Hill was just OK. But when I heard this song, I almost lost my mind. That "Duke. Duke. Duke. Duke of Duke..." is soooo hypnotic. Too bad the Hill could never really repeat this level of quality.
Arrested Development - People Everyday
"Acting like a nigga and get stomped by an African." I have to admit that it took me some time to warm up to Arrested Development. I didn't fall in love with them at first sight. But, this song definitely grew on me. Plus, you can't deny this groove. I love dude dancing in the clearing, at the end. That just makes me giggle. I have no idea why.
Pac - Brenda's Got A Baby
"Just cause you're in the ghetto doesn't mean you can't grow." Pac went from Digital Underground roadie to bonafied star when this song came out. Chicks were like, "OMG he's so sensitive." Even the hardest dude had to get his sensitive thug on after Pac droppped "Brenda." I believe this came out in early '92. It's hard to believe that Pac died only 4 and a half years later. Seems like he was around much longer, doesn't it?
