Old School Friday - 8th Grade

1989. The Golden Age. K-Swiss. In Living Color. Tecmo Bowl. I think that's all that really needs to be said. As always, drink a lot and act responsibly.

p.s. Yeah, I know. Where's De La? Where's P.E? Patience is a virtue:)

3rd Bass - Gas Face

"It's not white boy day, today? Is it?" Actually, yes it is Drexel, cause these white boys could flow. It doesn't hurt when you're getting production from Prince Paul, the Bomb Squad, and Sam Sever either. I love how they weren't afraid to diss Hammer. That was a classic scene. Hammer was still the shit, though. But so were Serch and Pete.




The D.O.C. - Funky Enough

Hypnotic. That's the only way to describe this beat. The first time I saw this video was on my birthday. I had a little get together with some of my boys, and as we ate pizza and played Tecmo Bowl, we couldn't stop going "Da doo dum. Da doo dum. Da doo dum." It's a trip seeing the Ruthless Posse together in one video. Absolute classic. RIP Eazy "Muthafucking" E.




Digital Underground - The Humpty Dance

"Samoans. Do the Humpty Hump." I love how Humpty was so inclusive. He was up on the multicultural tip 18 years ago. Anyways, the dance was pretty stupid. But, it was infectious. You will be doing a tamed version of it in 20 seconds, guaranteed. Besides, it's just one of those great party songs. Remember those?




The Dogs - Yo Mama's On Crack Rock

OK, if you're not from the south you've probably never heard of these guys. But trust me, this album is comic gold. Not only was this song bumping, but "Fuck The Motherfucking President," "10 Li'l Nigga Boys," and "Who Gives A Fuck About...?" were cafeteria classics. I guess you just had to be there. And if you were, you know what I'm talking 'bout.




Janet Jackson - Miss You Much

Oh Janet with her big hair and figure shielding wardrobe. I still lusted after loved her. Also loved the black and white photography. If lit correctly, black and white is beautiful. It should be utilized more often. Know what else should be, as well? Dancing with chairs. That shit rocks harder than John Holmes on a Levitra bender.




Gangstarr - Words I Manifest

If you couldn't tell, we kind of dig Gangstarr here at The Commission.




Slick Rick - Children's Story

"Crumbs." A master storyteller at the very apex of his game, MC Ricky D went solo and crushed everything in his path. Only Rick could turn a gangsta rap into a bedtime story and still make it dope. But, the whole album is pretty much classic. I will bump the hell out of "Lick The Balls" right now, and dare anyone to say something about it.




Special Ed - I Got It Made

"I make fresh rhymes daily. You burn me? Really?" Absolutely timeless beat. You could freestlye to it right now and have a #1 single. And the video? Me loves it. It just feels so right, you know?

Great choices. Are these really all from the same year?

Special Ed, Slick Rick, 3rd Bass... all classic. I had forgotten how badly MC Serch wanted to be a fly girl...

Gangsta D said...

Well Fall '89 to spring of '90, but yeah, it was "The Golden Age." Tons of classics were released during this time.

The Dogs :-). Man you took it back. Now can you find 12 Gauge's "Let me ride that donkey" or Poison Clan's "I hate hoes"?
