i realized why some of the music as of late is so horrible.
it has no soul.
it’s pretty empty and has everyone trying to be drug addicts.
there is hardly a melody or a harmony.
it’s just sound.
i guess this is why bruno mars is on the top.
he is bringing that nostalgic feeling we’re missing.
even generation z is taking a trip back to a time when music was good.
i got caught up watching videos from my childhood today.
it started when i randomly bumped into this…
i started mouthing kim’s entire verse.
i knew it word for word:
Lil’ Kim, you don’t know what type of chick this is
Number one ballette of the mistresses
Mr. Biggs you know you got to keep me jigs
Even though it might mean stealing chips from kids (say what!)
You know I sail the coast too hot for mink coats
Get C-notes every time I deep throats
Ya losing it, acting like ya new to this
Get true to this, make it shift in my uterus
Sexing in the Aston Martin, when wifey comes home
Get the dough and I’m departing
I wanna see if you can make me scream I hate ya
Give me back shots so I can sweat out my cream of nature
when she popped out that cake,
as a cub,
i was hooked!!!!!
when i say i was OBSESSED with lil’ kim?
this is my other next favorite:
…by this time after i snuck and bought her album,
i was turned completely out.
she taught me not to be on the side without any money involved.
if ima be a hoe,
or on the dl,
it gotta see the cash money.
i use to bump foxy,
and her faithfully.
missy was another one i was obsessed with:
missy is my favorite female rapper.
i wanted every song/remix she was featured her.
i loved how she spit.
when i bought an album,
and i saw she wrote/produced a song,
i can say that i instantly liked it.
she also had the finest wolves in her videos too.
i watched some videos that made me remember certain things/times.
this is when i started getting into music real heavy:
…and my mother was all over this:
she loved her some boyz 2 men.
bet use to play these videos every day.
there was a block of hours they’d play videos straight through.
there are a lot more videos i loved,
but i had to bounce.
i use to sneak and stay up late to watch the slow jams.
one thing i loved about all those videos is they celebrated everything black.
black vixens were always the standard of beauty.
i don’t know when the switch happened,
but i always saw the most beautiful black vixens in late 90s/early 2000 videos.
i don’t think music will ever get back to this point,
but i appreciate the memories and the feelings it gives me.
lowkey: remember how ever black movie had a bumpin soundtrack?
