Rock The Bells

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!

    Last night I was surfing Youtube for ’90’s hits. I was jamming to Shai and Kaci and JoJo all night. That’s when love songs were honest and tender. Now songs like “Bust It Baby” are supposed to be aimed at women!
    …I will never find another lover sweeter than you……..sigh
