TRACK OF THE DAY: Eminem - "Superman"

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 , under , , | comments (0)

Without a doubt, Eminem one of the nicest M.C.'s of our time. His unparrallell lyrical scheme of wit, humor and pure disrespectful disregard for anyone that he doesn't like is what puts this rap genius in a league of his own. In 2003, Slim Shady released this single from his 2002 album, The Eminem Show. Peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100, this track is based upon failed relationships and multiple promiscuos girls that Em has had contact with in his life. In his autobiography Em revealed that the song - to an extent - is about his rumored relationship with, R&B Pop Diva, Mariah Carey. Enjoy

The roots a.k.a. The Legendary Roots Crew has a remarkable and unique sound no one can ever replicate. With the procession wizard, ?uestlove, and one of the illest lyricists, Black Thought, this Grammy award winning group always releases great music; relieving true Hip-Hop fans from the bacteria on today's airwaves. Here's the single which won The Roots their first grammy; enjoy y'all...

James Todd's second studio album B.A.Dreally needs no introduction. It topped charts at number 1 on Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums and number 3 on the Billboard 200. L.L. was still living in his grandmothers basement when this LP dropped back in 1987. Well he definitly rapped his way to the top becoming a trend setting legend. All I can say is.........No rapper can rap quite like I can/I'll take a musclebound man and put his face in the sand/Not the last Mafioso Im a M.C. cop/make you say "Go L.L" and do the wop.....

Back In The Day:Guy*Guy*

There are not many albums that I put on that make me want to grab a magazine and roll it up to be a fake microphone and act like I'm a R&B singer. Well Guy's first album that was self titled Guy is one of those albums! In 1988 Teddy Riley,Aaron Hall, and Timmy Gatling(Who was replaced by Damion Hall a year later) came together to produce an album that had people dancing and slow jamming the night away. To this day when I hear Aaron Hall say "Jam Oh Jam Teddy Jam for me now" I'm transformed back to the days of high top fades,and MCM outfits and the silk shirts with the extra baggy slacks the late 80's LOL.
The group went on to have a follow up album titled the "Future" that gave us the classic "Let's Chill" but for me the first album was always the best. With tracks like Groove Me, Teddy's Jam and I like this album still gets rotation in my stereo. So enjoy this video and be sure to peep the fly MCM outfit Teddy Riley is rocking and the turtleneck underneath the Denim Jacket that Aaron Hall is rocking at the beginning of the video. The fashion may not be classic but at least the music is and like Teddy says at the end of the video "The party aint over" LOL
