I remember the exact day that I met this girl and fell in love with her. She was an original, pure, untampered and down sister.
Boy, I tell ya, I miss her.
The story goes like this: we used to hang out, I would see her around the way, then she started messing around with other cats and then I got really judgmental about the choices she made. I saw niggas slamming her and taking her to the sewer but I took her back because I’m self-righteous like that.
I’m talking about hip-hop, y’all. Didn’t you know?
Enough about me. I think we all knew someone licentious like that. So I asked my blogmates to come up with a list of songs that reminded me of their long-lost, triflin-ass first love:
Allure by Jay-Z (Shani-o)
Act Too (Love of My Life) by The Roots featuring Common (R.A.B.)
Award Tour by A Tribe Called Quest (Jamelle)
It Ain’t Hard to Tell by Nas (Alisa)
Juice (Know The Ledge) by Eric B & Rakim (Blackink)
Turn My Swag On by Soulja Boy (Shani-o)
Jackin’ for Beats by Ice Cube (R.A.B.)
Me, Myself and I by De La Soul (Jamelle)
Respiration by Blackstar featuring Common (Alisa)
A Little of This by Grand Puba (Blackink)
On the real, this list has given me inspiration to spend the weekend digging through my cassettes and old CDs. Probably better to do that than give in to my curiosity about Common’s new flick.
We gave him enough run during this roundup, don’t you think?
And as always, feel free to add to the list or send some shout-outs. Make this weekend wonderful, people.
