  1. Terry, Cindy, and (now with) Rhona are back! En Vogue Is Back with a New Album & Sound The award-winning R&B group on their decades-long career, the one ’90s trend they’ll never wear again, and their upcoming tour. By: Noah Lehava Photography: Tristan Kallas “Oh my gosh, we’ve been making music from analog to digital recording,” Cindy Herron giggles as I ask her how things have changed for her and fellow En Vogue-ers Terry Ellis and Rhona Bennett over their 27-year-long career. We’re in the penthouse suite at The Jeremy in West Hollywood, the
  2. I posted about this awhile back: I haven't gotten it yet strictly because I wanted to put it as birthday suggestion for nostalgia's sake. lol I want to be in my 30's and opening a JJ+FP present from my parents.
  3. Thanks for sharing this! A lot of this is mentioned in the interview that's in the remastered 2-CD version of He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper.
  4. When I saw the title of this topic, I knew what it was going to be about before I even opened it. LOL!
  5. Dang, Nat dropped a post. She's going to disappear for another decade after this. :) ...but let's hope not.
  6. When I heard this on his Instagram, I just listened to it looping. It's lyrically sharp while being classic Fresh Prince. The beat is dope too. The vocals on the hook are the perfect touch. I feel that the St. Patrick's Day theme kind of distracts from from the song, but it hooked a lot of people who were trying to see what he was doing in the video. From the lyrics we've heard, it reminds me a lot of the songs on Lost + Found. Not a single lyric is wasted. Each one adds to the story.
  7. Anything is possible. They put new songs in the live action Beauty & The Beast. They had Lin Manuel Miranda do music for Moana. I must say that it's hard to process exactly what this news means for him as a lyricist, emcee, and producer working under the unbrella of Disney.
  8. This is an excellent documentary on Craig Mack's career.
  9. I'm glad to see someone standing up for classic Hip-Hop. Hopefully it does well. Classic Hip-Hop and R&B stations are becoming more common since commercial urban music that occupies former Hip-Hop/R&B stations is mostly garbage.
  10. That last time Craig hit the mainstream...
  11. The song that started his mainstream success... Craig on Sista's (Missy Elliot's first group) on the Dangerous Minds soundtrack Craig on Veronica's "No One But You"
  12. Craig on TLC's So So Def Remix of "Kick Your Game" Craig Mack on Boyz II Men's "Vibin'" remix with Treach, Busta Rhymes, and Method Man Craig in a live performance with Brownstone on the Street Vibe Remix of their hit "If You Love Me," which features Mimi in her last performance with the group (not even singing the end of the song) and the member that replaced her, Kina
  13. The singles from 1997's "Operation: Get Down"... His featuring on BLACKstreet's remix of "Tonight's The Night" with SWV
  14. Rapper Craig Mack was on the verge of a comeback before death “Lyrically, he was about to be something,” Erick Sermon told Billboard. Craig Mack helped launch Sean Combs' Bad Boy Records. Photo Credit: WireImage / Johnny Nunez By Glenn Gamboa glenn.gamboa@newsday.com @ndmusic March 20, 2018 2:38 PM Print Share The saddest part of the death of Brentwood native Craig Mack earlier this month is that the “Flava in Ya Ear” rapper seemed poised to make a comeback. Mack, the 47-year-old rapper who
  15. Man, this one has been weighing on me. Craig Mack truly is one of the best to do it. Craig Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear" established Bad Boy. Without that hit, who knows what would have happened. I'm going to anger some people with this next part, but this is how I see it. Craig Mack wasn't even a Bad Boy artist. He came from the EPMD camp and his debut album was almost entirely produced by himself, his right hand man Alvin Toney, and Easy Mo Bee. Other than seeing Puffy's name as an executive producer and his adlibs on the Tumblin' Dice produced "Making Moves with Puff," Puffy did nothing for the
  16. Hearing her speak of him like that, even at that young age, is exactly why he's had he career that he's had.
  17. KJ-52 F/ DATIN - All I Had Jonah: Part 2 (2018)
  18. The album is slated for release March 23rd. It looks like it's more of an EP at only eight songs. I'm really interested to hear the duet with Colbie Caillat. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07B6D8674?ref_=pe_508720_275903430
  19. He announced it a couple of months ago on social media. I previewed it a couple of weeks ago and it's good, and genuine...not a gimmick. It comes out March 16th.
  20. THE UNDERACHIEVERS - Gotham Nights Renaissance (2017)
  21. Yes, LTI's R&B Remix is the last one in that video. I looked at my CD singles and it was one two non-US versions of the CD single (one in a jewel case and another in a cardboard sleeve, as well as vinyl. I have extended and shorter radio versions on a rare promo. I like the R&B Remix, because even though it's similar to the album version, it's not as polished. I agree that "Chasing Forever" would have been a good single choice. They put too much space between singles. The album did so well that the could have had another video/single or two.
  22. I saw one of my favorite singer/songwriters earlier this week. I also got to meet her, which was a pretty big deal for me. I been listening to her new album, At Now, almost non-stop. Here's my favorite song off of the new album from Anna Nalick. ANNA NALICK - Knots At Now (2017)
  23. I was hoping to find the laid back Love To Infinitiy's R&B Remix that was only released as a promo in South America (to my knowledge), but I can't find it on YouTube.
  24. "Just The Two of Us" is an excellent song. The lyrics personal, heartfelt, and occasionally comical. The video was touching and artsy. The media often portrays black men as poor or absent fathers, and the video featured so many cameos of black fathers. It was brilliant. The remixes of the song were great too. It was the perfect follow-up to a radio-ready song like "Just The Two of Us." I wish he would have followed it up with a better single though. "Miami" is the least interesting song on Big Willie Style, in my opinion. I have the "Just The Two of Us" book that was inspired by the song.
