🎧😎🎤 One Step Ahead - Aretha Franklin (1965) Sampled and chopped by producer Ayatollah for Mos Def's "Ms. Fat Booty" 👀 from Black On Both Sides (1999). Among a couple of Hip-Hop tracks that sample her catalog. Some rapper?/producer sampled her on his debut but he shall remain unnamed. 🤔😂 #arethafranklin #mosdef #ayatollahproductions #rawkusrecords #blackonbothsides #yasiinbey #boombap #soulmusic #soulsingers #ThrowBackThursday #hiphopjunkie #hiphophead #realhiphop #oldschoolrandb #oldschoolhiphop #90shiphop
Dag... #RIPArethaFranklin "Precious Lord Take My Hand/You've Got A Friend" (1972) Plenty of people can sing but few can stir something in you and make ya say "Umm hmm, yes ma'am, you right." From her 1972 2 x Platinum selling Gospel Album "Amazing Grace" done with the Southern California Community Choir. Her rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Wholly Holy" is dope. And her rendition of "Amazing Grace"...🤗 #arethafranklin #singer #soulmusic #gospel #Jesus #gospelmusic #jamescleveland #southerncaliforniacommunitychoir #clfranklin #jerrywexler #arifmardin
Lifting mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help or pondering why without a mustache I look like Allen Payne's stunt double in "Jason's Lyric"?
#ThrowBackThursday #NBA Lakers vs. Bulls Dec. 17, 1996 I just wanted to post a 90s Bulls' highlight that didn't feature Jordan. Namely, a vid of Randy Brown baptizing Elden Campbell and Jerome Kersey ending with Toni Kukoc pulling up on Shaq, a punctuating a huge 4th quarter come back. #chicagobulls #randybrown #tonikukoc #90snba #oldschoolnba #90sbulls #lakers #throwback #flashback

It's streaming on Spotify and available to purchase online. #donnie #thecoloredsection #2000smusic #2000srnb #randbmusic #soul #soulmusic #neosoul #singer #rnb #randb #naturalhair #naturallyshesdope #blackexcellence #naturalhaircommunity #blackandproud #naturalbeauty #natural #teamnatural #blkcreatives #blackartists #naturalhairrocks #songwriter #singersongwriter #oldschoolrnb #throwback #blavity #fortheculture
#ThrowBackThursday #RnBmusic 2 Chuckii Booker - "Games" (1992) The hit single from from Chuckii's second and final studio album released in 92 was co-written and produced by him. Gerald Levert also has a writing credit on the song. Fun Fact: "Games" would be sampled on 1996 hit "Return of the Mack" by Mark Morrison. If you check out Chuckii's wiki dude is a singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist, producer, and music director. He's been the music director on tours for artists the likes of Janet Jackson to TLC to Mary J. Blige. He also produced for his godfather Barry White, Troop ("Spread My Wings" which was the jam), Janet, and Vanessa Williams among others. In short, dude is mad talented and more than likely eating good thanks to that fact. You can find "Games"and his albums ( that includes his debut "Chuckii's) on Amazon and iTunes music stores. It's at a better price on Amazon FYI. He's also on the gram if you want to show him some love. #chuckiibooker #contemporaryrnb #rnb #rnbmusic #musicmonday #soul #randb #jams #1992 #90s #90srnb #music #goodmusic #multiinstrumentalist #producer #singer #songwriter #singersongwriter #musicdirector #markmorrison #returnofthemack #throwback #oldschool #oldschoolrandb #oldschoolrnb #throwback #soulmusic #grownfolksmusic
#ThrowBackThursday #RnBmusic 1 Platinum Pied Piper's ft. Zeno - "Fever" (2005) I like to post acts you've probably never heard of before. This is my favorite jawn from "Triple P" the first studio album by the Detroit group Platinum Pied Pipers. The group consisted of producer Wajeed (Robert O'Bryant) and multi-instrumentalist Saadiq (Darnell Bolden. The album allowed the duo to showcase their versatility as producers with tracks that hybridized hip-hop, jazz, and soul. Some of the featured artists were J-Dilla, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Sa-Ra Creative Partners, Time Lockhart, and Steve Spacek. Once again I say, in time Musiq was eating I thought this would have legs if made a single. It never was. The tracks that were, "I Got You" and "Act Like You Know", are dope too, though. Cop it at you favorite digital store. It's also streaming on Spotify. You can also cop the vinyl. #platinumpiedpipers #triplep #jaydee #jdilla #saracreativepartners #tiombelockhart #ubiquityrecords #detroit #2000srnb #rnb #randb #neosoul #soulmusic #hiphop #boombap #funk #jazz #instrumentalist #multiinstrumentalist #producer #musicproduction #oldschoolrnb #stevespacek #zeno #vocalist #singer #randbmusic #songwriter

#ThrowBackThursday #HipHop 1 Oukast - Everlasting (1997) The Photoshop on this cover is terrible. A track from the soundtrack of the 97 Martin Lawrence & Tim Robbins led comedy. The soundtrack is the source of hit "Not Tonight" (Ladies Night Remix) by Lil' Kim ft. Left Eye, Da Brat, Missy, & Angie Martinez. Coolio's "C U When U Get There" is on here. Dude was winning with soundtrack placements in the 90's. Any way, this is one of a few gems lost to time from Outkast's placements on soundtracks. I may place another I have from the "New Jersey Drive" OST at some point. Production is credited to the group which was transitioning from heavy use of Organized Noize and producing most if their albums themselves. #martinlawrence #timrobbins #hiphophead #outkast #atl #dirtysouth #realhiphop #hiphopjunkie #hiphopproducer #hiphopgroups #rap #southernrap #dungeonfamily #oldschool #oldschoolhiphop #90shiphop #tbt #throwback #music #andrebenjamin #bigboi #andre3000 #rapmusic #realrap #hiphopculture #hiphopmusic #atliens
