What up y'all??? So, we've figured out that we're not very good at keeping track of weekly features (I think we're like 2 or 3 behind in the End of the Year Awards), but that ain't stoppin' me from trying to start another!!
I've been thinking about a weekly throwback single post for awhile now. You know, old cuts that make you think "Damn! It's been a minute since I heard this one." Then you promptly jet to your computer to find said track and proceed to bump it for like three days straight. What's that? You don't do that? Well, fuck you. I do.
The first edition of Take it Back Tuesday has us hoppin' in the ol' DeLorean with Doc Brown and arriving in the year 1991. "But that's the future!" Shut the fuck up Marty and go get me a double burger wit cheese.
Ahh, '91. The year the first Gulf War began; the year Rodney King got knocked the fuck out; Michael Jordan won his first ring; Pee-wee Herman got caught beatin' it in public; and Magic Johnson announced he had AIDS... that was 17 years ago!!! Insert Punchline lyric: "You say your sick, but I don't see it!"
So we hop out the car, step over Rodney, and into the music store to browse through the tape section. (I know, we were probably buying CDs at that point, but this is my story and I'll tell it how I like!) Let's see... D, E, F, G.... Gangstarr - nope, not today... Gay Rappers United - Noooooo, that's Benny's shit... ah, here it is:
Hell. Yes. Who didn't love the Geto Boys?? These Houston cats were fucking crazy!!! Who even knew there was such a thing as a midget with a glass eye?? Yep, Bushwick Bill, Willie D and Scarface stirred shit up when they hit the scene. But it was this one from their fourth album that most people will always remember 'em for:
There you have it, the first edition of Take it Back Tuesday here at AYCE. My inspiration for today's pick is that I watched The Strangers today...that is one fucked up flick! Got my mind playing tricks on me! Best scurry movie I've seen in a long time.
Bonus Video (and a good one at that!):
