The Flashback Fridays #2 For 3/25/16: A Tribe Called Quest feat Leaders of The New School - Scenario (1992)

In the continued Flashback Friday tribute to Malik Taylor, here is Sir Phife Dawg leading off superbly with the timeless group classic "Scenario", which on another day would be a full recognition of how the Leaders of the New School, in particular Busta Rhymes, emerged as real forces to watch for.

More to come at The Whole Delivery, stay tuned.

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 3/25/16: A Tribe Called Quest - Can I Kick It? (1990)

With the passing of one Malik Taylor, it's only necessary that this week's Flashback Friday include a few "A Tribe Called Quest" classics that he specifically got his lyrical shine in.

Unfortunate thing in all of this is how Phife Dawg never was given his chance to deliver a well-hyped solo album. Part of it had to do with just the in-demand market for it, but as he so eloquently alluded to in an interview on Highly Questionable in 2014, the less glamorized members of Wu-Tang got their album shine, so why couldn't he?

Eventually he was able to release a solo album, but any notable demand for it had long past the minute it (Ventilation: DA LP) dropped in 2000. No assistance from Q nor Ali went into it, and it is an album that even most of these "#RIPPhifeDawg" tribute people probably have never even bothered to listen to or know about.

Thankfully on their debut "People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm," Phife did get his shine…

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 3/18/16: Blu Cantrell - Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!) (2001)

Considered a Faith Evans ripoff at the time, it still was a great debut in spring 2001 for Blu Cantrell with "Hit Em Up" style. Dallas Austin provided the quality production for the pinnacle of her soon "one-hit wonder" career and funny video.

Taking it back 15 years old, it's Blu Cantrell with "Hit Em Up Style."

The Democratic Primary Story #1 For 3/9/16: Look At All That Bernie Hate

It was a lot of hilarious, humbled Hillary supporters or straight anti-Bernie people really expressing their loathing of Michigan voters giving a remarkable win to Bernie Sanders last night. May you take a look at the best of them, here (click to enlarge):

Oh look, a Sandusky reference! First I have seen of that one:

The media who barely shows him doesn't call him out on his lies! Those socialist lies!

Muting when losing is therapy for some. 

Professional Hack economist who writes many professional hack pieces expresses his usual passive aggressive hack snark. 

Oh look, it's the #MississippiBerning hashtag, that was started by a comedian.........back in summer 2015.

Michael Moore changed his name to Michael Flint, who knew???

And the best of them all, that Bernie spent $82 million, $82 million, in Michigan!

Bonus: Though this one wasn't last night, it showed how left-center hacks like Matthew Yglesias have spiraled into the mess they have become. 

Hence Yglesias becoming o…
