Way Back Wednesday-Hip Hop

One of my favorite movies is “Brown Sugar”-a film starring someone I now love Sanaa Lathan (because she got on my last nerves in “The Best Man”) and Taye Diggs.  The movie centers around childhood friends who have a love for true hip-hop…and each other.  Today’s post is about some of my favorite hip hop songs growing up.  Now, I was the kid who liked songs, even when I didn’t know the title or the artist.  But I knew good music when I heard it.  Below is a list of some of the greatest songs of all time

1. “They Reminisce Over You”- Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth

2. “Award Tour”- A Tribe Called Quest

3. “C.R.E.A.M.”- Wu-Tang Clan

4. “U.N.I.T.Y.”- Queen Latifah

5. “Passin’ Me By”- The Pharcyde

6. “Elevators”- Outkast

7. “Roxanne, Roxanne”- U.T.F.O.

8. “Tennessee”- Arrested Development

9. “The Seed 2.0”- The Roots

10. “Brenda’s Got a Baby”- Tupac

I know I missed tons of songs, so look forward to Part 2 next Wednesday.  What are some of your favorite hip hop songs from back in the day?  Who can Wacka Flocka, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and the rest of the teeny-boppers look up to in order to know true hip-hop?  Until next time, I’m just a Southern Girl…in the city!

Today’s post is homage to one of the greatest voices in hip-hop, Nathaniel Hale, also known as Nate Dogg.  RIP
