OSW: New Batteries In The Boom Box

I had to take a longer than usual hiatus but life’s like that right about now. Good things coming along in the next couple of weeks, but I don’t want to jinx it. Details to come later. Right now, let’s switch to the boom box, and with KB putting his hand in it, it’s all good. Presenting:

  3. Big Daddy says:

    Son you are a genius. I realize rap and hip hop have gone a lot of places, but personally, what you have on the list is what I STILL listen to. I couldn’t even point to one track in particular. They are ALL hittin’. Thanks again brother.

  4. EJ we must have been seperated at birth bruh because I was on the same vibe last night. Check my Raps Roots and you’ll see what I mean. Damn, I couldn’t even sneak The Boogie Boys in there without you having that same vibe….Great minds think alike. Must be an Eric thing!!!

  12. **RPM** says:

    Ok, so I had a crush on dude with the teeny tiny cowboy hat back in the day. Must’ve been where my infatuation with black cowboys started.
    Damn you Whodini. DAMN YOU!

  13. Jen says:

    I remember Whodini’s One Love video and I’d laugh everything they do that little 2 step to each side then put 1 finger up and spin around. Poor Jahlil looked a mess trying to keep in step, LOL.

  14. nikki indigo says:

    everytime i hear ‘i got a man’ i remember that video that was cheezy and entertaining at the same time. the lyrics got brotha sounding just a tad stalkerish. LOL

  15. SP says:

    Love this Mix!

  16. ManNMotion says:

    Holy Old School Batman!

  17. stranger says:

    Hey you! I used to love that Mantronix cut – that one and take your time. I STILL do love those two.. definitely can get me on the dance floor. Nice mix.

  18. jdid says:

    I had to break out the pod which has been on hiatus for a few weeks just for this one. Wooh ha I got ya all in check!
    Ok I’ll keep it short. Roxanne Roxanne and Whoudini’s Five minutes of funk were like the first two rap songs that made me like this genre. classic.I used to be walking around singing Dr Ice’s rhymes lol.
    Wasnt a big fan of poor georgie when it first came out took a long time for it to grow on me. It was just so girly compared to lytes previous other hardcore stuff. nice beat though.
    Rob Base oh man that song was one of the best songs to cut up in a club or on the radio
    could go on and on but its a great mix. one love son!

  19. EJ Flavors says:

    @Gina, @ms alex, y’all beat me to the punch each and every time. I was still doing some fine tuning. Glad you enjoyed it.
    @Grantlove, you know I’m always trying to be like you. @BigDaddy, I look forward to you vibin’ to this. Get that iPod workin’, @Jo!
    @Nikki –
    Walks in with the Boom Box, Kangol, and the Adidas.
    Walks over to the lady on the side and leans over, allowing her to put my chain on me.
    Stands there and looks at Nikki. Steps back and does a backflip, dances and completes a backspin.
    Pauses and gets back up. Crosses arms and stares at Nikki up and down, waiting for a response.

    @MoniMoni! Happy belated birthday! One of these times we’ll catch up with each other.
    @Chica, thanks for your inspiration for the next OSW. I got chu! @KB, keep me goin, man, keep me goin.
    @Obi, I’m just trying to be like you, forreal. @RPM, you killin’ me. @Jen, you’re making me go to YouTube to find this video. @Nikki – that video had me laughing every time I saw it. The girl would roll her eyes so much I thought they were going to pop out.
    @SP, welcome aboard. @Hyps – you know you have me hyped for my next rotation. Email me. I’m still absorbing Emmanuel!
    @MnM, @jdid, the fact that you guys were checking this out is letting me know that this mix was alright. *Bows* I’m not worthy…..
