If you are familiar with the awesome movie Brown Sugar, you might understand my sentiment for Hip Hop!  The year that my love for it began was in 1984 when I watched Fat Boys movie for the 1st time.  I heard sounds, vibes and beats that I had never heard before.  I was intrigued!  From that point I was introduced to Beastie Boys, Run DMC, LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Biz Markie and so many others that made me realize just how much I love the sounds  of REAL Hip Hop!dmx

Well last night, I dressed in my old school outfit with bamboo earrings and gold rope, and I took a trip back to the 80’s for one night!  Robbie and I went to the Masters of Ceremony reunion concert and for 4 hours, we rocked to the sounds of the greatest MC’s of all times!  The line up included Rakim, Naughty By Nature, as well as DMX and many others!  What a night!!  I literally was got up in a zone that I hadn’t been in since childhood.  It felt amazing!

The reality is, today’s generation of music has changed drastically since back then and it will continue to change.  I even enjoy a lot of the production and tracks from a lot of today’s rap artists.  What I’m hoping for is lyrical content to get better.  I’m waiting for the bold few who will begin the change!!naughty

  1. What’s great about music is that it helps to define a generation. As we get older we carry it with us, as you’ve pointed out. It will always give us that comfort, that nostalgia, that connection to our youth.

  2. Music has always been and will always be a great way to express oneself. Espressions of. Love, Pain, Happiness, Sorrow,Compassion and so much more. Wow what a great way to reach out to so many that can relate!
