I'm loving this thread!

One of my favorites: L.O.T.U.--Chief Rocka

This shit still gets me hyped to this day: Onyx--Slam

Tribe--Midnight Marauders is my all time fave. I can listen to it over and over again. Here's Award Tour

Great tune and gotta love the message: Main Source--Lookin' at the front door.

This one's for the RVF: Naughty by Nature--O.P.P.

Five video limit, oops! Had to cut a few out.

With all this Fergusson nonsense going on, lets take the time machine for a little dose of Afrocentricity and soul. This was the rough 70's and early Reaganomics, yet African Americans found the time and peace to make this sweet music; surely it can be duplicated in the modern day. I present the O'Jays...

Fat titties turn to teardrops as fat ass turns to flab
Sores that was open wounds eventually turn to scab
Trees bright and green turn yellow brown
Autumn caught em, see all them leaves must fall down, growing old


Surprised nobody posted this one yet:

Heard this on the radio yesterday afternoon, goes back to 1982, even before my time.

This takes me back to Century Club ~1999-2000.


One of the best is Ice Cube, Today was a Good Day, glad to say somebody beat me to it on this thread already.
There's still good stuff out there, it just isn't promoted or out there in the mainstream. Beats are getting a hell of a lot better then they were in the 90's also.
