It's the 20 yr anniversary of this smooth hit that still stands the test time. Well, tomorrow (June 9) will be that anniversary.

So without further adieu, enjoy this classic track with Wonda and Wyclef producing for their Fugees teammate, with Mya and ODB providing the classic hit. It's of course "Ghetto Superstar", your Flashback Friday choice for this week.


Enjoy.

The Flashback Fridays For 4/27/18: Public Enemy ft Stephen Stills - He Got Game (1998) (20 Year Anniversary)

Image
It's now time for the 20 year anniversary that is the iconic classic He Got Game, and of course, it's time for the main song/soundtrack that defines it completely.

Of course it's Chuck D and Flava Flav, with the underrated Sterling Stills on the title song of the movie's soundtrack. Produced Keith Shocklee, Hank Shocklee and D.R. Period, it's really one of the memorable beats ever for a record. Not overcomplicated, but effectually poignant to combine with Chuck's usual blunt, in depth lines.

So, it's the 20th anniversary of Spike Lee's memorable Coney Island basketball tale, and the anniversary for its title song. Enjoy:




The Flashback Fridays #2: Styles P - Good Times (2002)

Image
The other anthem fitting for this 4/20 day, it's of course the 16 year spring classic from Styles P, with Saint Denson & Swizz Beatz sampling Freda Payne's "I Get High (On Your Memory)".

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 4/20/18: Afroman - Because I Got High (2000)

Image
It's happy 4/20 day, and because of that, it's only fitting on this Flashback Friday to play the two songs that fittingly go with the vibe the best. 
It's of course the legendary track from Afroman, it's "Because I Got High."

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 4/6/18: Roxanne Shante - Roxanne's Sevenge (1984)

Image
In wake of her Netflix special documenting her life getting major attention, take it back to where it all started for a then 14-year-old Lolita Shante Gooden.

It was the first lyrical, high profile beef in the rap game, with Marley Marl set to get back at UTFO for cancelling on them in Queensbridge.


It's today's first choice for Flashback Fridays, it's Roxanne Shante with "Roxanne's Revenge."

The Flashback Fridays For 3/2/18: Johnny Kemp - Just Got Paid (1988)

Image
It's the return of the Flashback Fridays, and it's a look back 30 years ago at this time (when I was definitely in the crib, literally). Before Montell Jordan took the "Friday night" theme song title (and long before Rebecca Black was even a human being), it was this sir whose song definitely was the #1 Friday day theme.

 He's up above now, but Johnny Kemp definitely will always be remembered as the New Jack Swing Era. It's "Just Got Paid", this week's Flashback Friday choice.

The Flashback Fridays #1: The Roots ft Musiq Soulchild - Break You Off (2002)

Image
In wake of Black Thought once again producing one of the best a cappella freestyles ever in music at HOT 97 on Wednesday, take it back 15 years ago to this still smooth effort from his crew and fellow Philly standout Musiq Soulchild.

It's "Break You Off" , the first Flashback Friday selection this week.


The Whole Delivery.
