It's been a while since I've done one of these. I'm going with three recent picks that I spun this week.
Remember Double XX Posse from the early-mid 1990s? Although they released two albums, "Put Ya Boots On" and "Ruff Rugged N Raw", the following classic is the song they're best known for, as well as being part of an episode of "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" ("You Bet Your Life", Season 3). It still bangs today, in addition to taking me right back to 1992.
I continue to say that I'm probably the only person who remembers this next song by Dirt Nation. This is likely the only song they ever released and I don't think they ever released an album back in 93. They talk about the daily issues with a girl named Khadijah, quite the "unsung" gem.
This is classic Grand Puba right here, kind of a slept on joint from 1995.
