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!
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!!
