This weekend I’m attending the Rock The Bells Music Festival and everyone who knows me, knows that although I don’t listen to much of the hip-hop that’s played on the radio nowadays, I’m a fan of most that was played between 1989-2000. Sunday’s concert line-up consists of:
A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Mos Def, The Pharcyde, De La Soul, Rakim, Method Man & Redman, Raekwon & Ghostface, Immortal Technique, Dead Prez, Murs, Spankrock, Wale, Santogold, Jay Electronica, B.O.B., Kidz in the Hall and Amanda Blank.
It’s a hip-hop fanatics dream come true!
I remember the first cassette tape I ever owned was ATCQ (A Tribe Called Quest) and yes, I still have it. Then along came my fascination with De La Soul, posters were all over my wall thanks to my cousin and her supply of hip-hop magazines!
So in honor of the Rock The Bells concert, here are a few of my oldies but goodies! These are CLASSICS! I truly don’t think anything being played on the radio nowadays (besides the new NAS), compares to the music that was once played on the radio. Thank god for MP3 players!
