DJ QUIK & Tony Toni Toné – “Let’s Get Down” (Music Video) #ThrowbackThursday via @lisafordblog

Tony Toni Toné’s, “Let’s Get Down”, features one of my favorite Hip Hop tracks of all time produced by the West Coast’s legendary DJ QUIK. Da Brat’s, “Fire It Up” has a similar swag and sound and like this one, is on constant rewind in my IPod. You can dance to ‘Let’s Get Down’, you can have sex to ‘Let’s Get Down’, and you can smoke to it because it’s one of those timeless chill ass songs. It takes place during the days when women could be in the videos with clothes on and still be sexy! I wish they would get back together and tour!!!

One thing we can all say about the Rick Ross is that he’s always been consistent with good music. His soon-to-be-released, “Hood Billionaire” album will probably be no different.

NICKI MINAJ Apologizes For Nazi Symbolism In “Only” (Music Video) via @lisafordblog *Explicit*

“I didn’t come up with the concept, but I’m very sorry and take full responsibility if it has offended anyone,” says Nicki Minaj. “I’d never condone Nazism in my art”

The Anti-Defamation League drew negative attention to Nick Minaj by blasting her new animated music video over the weekend and accusing her of mimicking Nazism through imagery showing soldiers in red arm bands, Minaj as their dictator, and the “Young Money logo has been compared by some to a swastika”. The organization’s director, Abraham H. Foxman – a Holocaust survivor – called it “a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism.”

According to Rolling Stone, “Foxman condemned the video not just for its imagery, but for the tactlessness of releasing the video on the 76th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass” pogrom in which tens of thousands of Jews were brought to concentration camps and more than 1,000 synagogues were burned, signaling the beginning of the Holocaust.”

JOEY BADA$$ – “Big Dusty” (Music Video) #ThrowbackThursday via @lisafordblog

I consider young Joey Bada$$ one of the leaders of the new school because he’s dropping classics straight out the gate and releasing music that his ahead of his time. If you listen to his delivery on hits like this one, “Big Dusty”, and “95 til infinity”, you’ll see that Joey has a deep understanding of hip hop music history with an ear to develop quality songs at the right time of the hip hop cycle…aka publishing songs that’s countering a lot of the pop rap garbage. I’m excited to see what he comes out with next. Excellent work Joey Bada$$.
