I laugh everytime I hear this song because it reminds me of an old PlayStation One game called Thrasher: Skate And Destroy. This song is classic, though bringing in a couple million views on YouTube. Released in 1982, it wasn’t the most popular song but it sure changed the foundation of hip-hop and dance music. Give it up for Planet Rock.
If you really think it’s a weird song just note that in November 2004, the Planet Rock track was placed at #237 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. I call that impressive even if the song is a bit funky.
Wiz Khalifa has been making a huge name for himself lately but the thing is, he’s been around for a long time and has tons of classic material that not many of the newer fans know about. Being the music junkie I am, I started listening to Wizzle Man back in 2006 and have been a fan ever since. So, it’s my job now to educate you all on some of Wiz’s best unknown work and this mixtape goes HARD! If you don’t have Star Power, listen to it below and be sure to download. It is well worth your time.
“Like It Like That”, released in 1998, is the final single by hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest, the second single from their final album “The Love Movement”. The single was released solely as a promo-copy, had no music video, and received minimal radio airplay, being the only Tribe single not to reach any Billboard chart.
This is one of my favorite hip hop tracks to this day.
It’s that time of the week again everybody: Throwback Thursday. I always try to find a killer track to throw up that will introduce some of the newer hip-hop listeners to music from “The Golden Age” if you will. This classic 1993 track from “Naughty By Nature” never fails to catch my attention and is one of the purest hip-hop songs I have ever heard. Without any further delays, here is your Throwback Thursday track. Enjoy!
