I've found another song to inspire me, so it's time to make a new thread.
:D

Post videos, lyrics, and songs you like from any of the three genres.

One more thing: If you don't like the genres and video I've listed, don't hijack my thread.... Please....It's pointless.

Once I get the time, I'll post some reviews of new albums I've bought. (Lupe Fiasco and Jay-Z's newest effort, to name a couple)

Good thread idea.

lakesha.johnson,
I watched Dave Chappelle's Block Party yesterday. I loved music. I really love Mos Def, Common, Kanye West, Dead Prez and Talib Kweli:smitten: I heard that there is a remix of Throw Some D's by Kanye so I must hear that.

I love rap, hip-hop and R & B from the 80's and 90's, especially one hit wonders.

I love the music from Breakin 1 & 2, especially Din Dah Dah, There's No Stopping Us, Combat and Ain't Nobody.

I :smitten: Talib Kweli.

Some faves:

Trillville- 'It's goin' down lovely in the legion of doom'...all to the sounds of a mattress squeaking, it's great. Haha.

Biggie- "I'm not only a client, I'm the playa president"

Lloyd Banks- The song "Warrior"...my fave from the album

Dr. Dre- (from at the end of one of his songs...not really rapped) "Smoke weed everyday"

Luda- uh, I pretty much love every song he's every put out.

There are tons tons tons more, but I can't go all through them. I really REALLY like Sterling Simms right now. He's very Michael Jackson meets Prince, but in a hoodie with a white tee underneath. No gloves. He's got a bit of an 80's feel-good vibe to his music.

That's Nate Dogg singing at the end of "The Next Episode" -- I'm a big fan of his hooks. You can't beat "Regulate" or any of the stuff he did with Dre and Snoop.

How about early-90s NYC hardcore, like Black Moon, Smif-N-Wessun and the other Boot Camp Clik rappers?

Black Moon, "How Many MCs?": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKKicEjGvWQ
Smif-N-Wessun, "Sound Bwoy Bureill": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVZxfTp6E8Q
Fab Five, "Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVZxfTp6E8Q

Can't find it on Youtube, but "Home Sweet Home" by Smif-N-Wessun was one of the few things which made me really homesick for NY when I lived in Chicago...

oh wow. i have a whole folder of youtube videos that are in this genre of music. title of the folder? ''shake that ass". i love most of the older stuff, and as far as anything newer, i like the lesser known artists and songs, they aren't so kitschy.

As Mystikal once said, "shake dat ass!" I second his suggestion, especially when it's directed towards Supersoup :p.

hahaha, you have no idea my friend, no idea...every night as i sit here, i've got youtube going, or one of the mixed cds i've made, and i'm up and down out of my seat all night breakin it the eff down. hell, i do it at work now. i think it's a stress thing for me.

now back on topic...and i don't know if this song qualifies, but i'm callin' it some sort of r&b...remember all-4-one? this is one of my most favorite songs ever, and it's by them. nope, not i swear...

"she's got skillz"

little rump shaker she can really shake and bake
she's got skillz
watch her slippin and a slidin' working booty left to right
she's got skillz
she can work it to the left
work it to the right
she wants to get a little freaky tonight
she's got the potion in the motion
to cure my illz
she's got skillz

she shammies up my jammies and she'll do me all night long
she's got skillz
in the mornin' when i'm yawnin' she gives me a sticky bun
she's got skillz

yum yum eat 'em up think i'm in luck because
she wants to lick me like a lollipop
she's got the potion in the motion
to cure my illz
she's got skillz

skillz
girl has it goin' on
she's got skillz
work her booty all night long
she's got skillz
makes me wanna scooby doo
she's got skillz
makes me want to zoom zoom zoom

she's got the potion in the motion
to cure my illz
she's got skillz

yum yum eat 'em up think i'm in luck because
she wants to lick me like a lollipop

she's got the potion in the motion
to cure my illz
she's got skillz

little rump shaker got the flavor that i like
she's got skillz
little cutie with that booty, think i'll take her home tonight
she's got skillz

that song is my personal anthem.

/babble.

How about this one? "All I wanna do is do a zoom zoom zoom and a boom boom... just shake ya rump!"
of course!!! love that one. this is a cd i was given as a gift...oh so appropriate. and i had to buy another one, cause my friend and i wore it out in her car. and yes, i've been known to jump out of the car at red lights and dance my ass off.

But you can't be any geek off the streets... gotta be handy with the steel, know what I mean, earn ya keep!

Yeah, Nate Dogg is amazing. I have one of his solo albums, which is totally awesome... old-school electro funk the whole way through. You can tell he made it not to have a hit single (he has enough of those already from guesting on other people's tracks), but just because it was the kind of album he wanted to make.

:smitten: at image of Supersoup ghostriding the whip!

Looks like a sweet collection. But where's "2 Much Booty In Da Pants" :eek:?

And while we're on the subject of ass, how about "Ass & Titties"?
