This is my favorite photo of #Tupac, I believe from the infamous Vibe Magazine photo shoot with Snoop Dogg and Dre when they all signed a deal to be on Death Row Records with Suge Knight. I also remember exactly where I was when I got the sad news of his death. I was a student at Kent State University in my senior year in fall 96, riding in the car with my friend Heather and we heard it on the radio. For a couple of 20 somethings to hear about the demise of someone so talented who was our age, it was devastating. And who could have predicted that Biggie would also be gone only about 6 months later. #the90s #HipHop #OldSchool #CollegeMemories #BlogPost #the40andoverproject
Tupac Amaru Shakur (/ˈtuːpɑːk ʃəˈkʊər/TOO-pahk shə-KOOR; born Lesane Parish Crooks, June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996), better known by his stage name 2Pac and, later, by his alias Makaveli, was an American rapper, songwriter, and actor. He is widely considered one of the most influential rappers of all time. Much of Shakur’s work has been noted for addressing contemporary social issues that plagued inner cities, and he is considered a symbol of activism against inequality. #Wikipedia

From Wikipedia : Marcel Theo Hall (April 8, 1964 – July 16, 2021), known professionally as Biz Markie, was an American rapper, singer-songwriter, DJ, and record producer. Markie was best known for his 1989 single “Just a Friend“, which became a top 40 hit in several countries. In 2008, “Just a Friend” made No. 100 on VH1‘s list of the 100 greatest hip hop songs of all time. Markie was sometimes referred to as the “Clown Prince of Hip Hop“.
The Control album dropped 35 years ago in February 1986 and I was 13. I don’t know about you, but that album changed my life. The record producers who made her famous, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are releasing their own album, dropping on Friday. What are your favorite songs from the album: Nasty Boy, Pleasure Principle, Let’s Wait A While? I loved them all! And who else thought they were Janet Jackson dancing in the mirror? 🖐️LOL #OldSchool #40AndOver #the80s #the40andoverproject #GirlPower

It’s #Cookout season. You know what that means right? Alot of #OldSchool dance music to set the mood. Before I Let Go, by Frankie Beverly, has got to be one of everyone’s all time favorites for family reunions and weddings. Keep this one on blast and you will be sure to have a successful Que (BBQ that is and guarantee that somebody’s auntie will break out into a line dance after a mean game of Bid Whist on the card table! And we can’t leave out the Hip Hop classic, Summertime, by Will Smith because the title says it all! This should be in heavy rotation in your “CD player”, lol, or on your playlist, either way, it’s the jam! Enjoy!
When I first started my podcast, the name of it was “the clique” which was the whole premise of the podcast in the first place. As we get older, who do we surround ourselves with, who are our true friends we’ve made over the years? This is one of my favorite episodes. Take a listen, in case you missed it the first time. Enjoy!
Since 2020, the 40 and over project podcast has been a one woman show. Here’s a glimpse of the preparation for the “Best Of/Summer Remix” series where I’m reviewing and editing past episodes from 2020 to share again. Make sure you have a listen to the lineup if you’ve never listened to my podcast before. Enjoy and thank you for your support!
