This guy is a genius way ahead of his time. With a new album, “Flower Boy“, dropping tomorrow, we’ve selected the lead single off his debut classics, “Goblin“. “Yonkers” was released back in February 2011. Peep the visuals up top, and be sure to pre-order your copy of “Flower Boy” here.
It’s late, I know. But I’m on holiday, and hey, at least I managed to get this up before the day’s out! Anyway, featuring P Diddy, here’s B2K’s massive 2002 single, off their “Pandemonium” project, released in the same year.
Time sure has flown. It’s hard to believe that Puff Daddy dropped his debut album 20 years ago. 20 years! With “No Way Out” featuring many of his Bad Boy labelmates, the album was released under Puff Daddy and The Family; gotta give credit where it’s due! To celebrate 2 decades of Bad Boy, as well as the release of the “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” documentary, we’ve selected the debut single from The Family. Released back in January 1997, peep the visuals for “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” up top.
Over the past few months, our very own Calvin Harris has dropped some amazing records, namely “Slide“, “Heatstroke“, Rollin’” and “Feels“, all of which feature the biggest names in the game. The Summer bangers are all set to feature on his highly-anticipated “Funk Wav Bounces vol. 1“, due to drop tomorrow. For this weeks #TBT record, we’ve taken it all the way back to his debut single. “Acceptable In The ’80s” was released back in December 2006 and is lifted off his 2007 debut, “I Created Disco“.
June 20th 2017. This day will forever be remembered as the day the Hip-Hop world lost one of the most iconic MCs to rock the mic. Albert Johnson, better known as Prodigy, was one half of legendary rap duo Mobb Deep. For decades, they provided us with some of the best Gangsta Rap. Even as a solo artist, Prodigy delivered brilliant projects (if you haven’t heard his “H.N.I.C.” trilogy, do yourself a favour and give them a spin). To celebrate his life, we’ve selected some of the duos finest tracks, all of which feature some of the most unforgettable lines from the late MC. Check them out below. R.I.P. Prodigy.
Shook Ones, pt. II (1994)
Survival Of The Fittest (1995)
Front Lines (Hell On Earth) (1996)
Quiet Storm feat. Lil’ Kim (1999)
Hey Luv (Anything) feat. 112 (2002)
Get Away (2002)
Got It Twisted (2004)
Hard to believe this track is 5 years old! “Latch” served as the lead single off Disclosure’s brilliant debut project, “Settle“, and was released back in October 2012.
Hauntingly beautiful vocals over soothing instrumentals. The incredible trio that is London Grammar release their highly-anticipated sophomore set tomorrow. To mark the release, we’ve selected the track that started it all. “Metal & Dust” served as their debut single back in Fe 2013 and was lifted off their debut album, “If You Wait“. Give the track a spin up top, and be sure to grab your copy of “Truth Is A Beauiful Thing” when it drops tomorrow!
Oakland’s Souls Of Mischief provide us with our #TBT record of the week. “93 ’til Infinity” served as the lead single off the groups debut project of the same name and was released back in 1993. Fun fact: Souls Of Mischief were a subgroup of the Hip-Hop collective, Hieroglyphics, founded by Del The Funky Homosapien.
The first few seconds of this track always put a smile on my face. Lifted off their debut project, Toploader’s classic from February 2000 serves as our #TBT record of the week.
