The Life As Shay Report:
Today’s throwback is dedicated to original NY hip-hop. It’s rather rainy in LA today and all I could think of was my last trip to NY…where it was very cold and VERY rainy. I listen to this THROWBACK and feel like I’m back home in DC walking around with a popsicle and sunflower seeds. Released in 1985, this track is older than I am but it feels the same every time I hear it.
Slick Rick rapping, Doug E. Fresh on the beatbox. Let me school on you on why some of ya’ll were doing the “Dougie” a few years ago (and some of ya’ll are still doing it! lol). It’s FRESH…oh you think not? Beyonce and Biggie loved it…It was sampled in Beyonce‘s Party and Biggie‘s Hypothesize, just to name a few. You don’t get quality entertainment like this anymore…
