From Wikipedia : Marcel Theo Hall (April 8, 1964 – July 16, 2021),[2] 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.[3] Markie was sometimes referred to as the “Clown Prince of Hip Hop“.[4][5][6]

Throwback Thursday: Janet Jackson Control

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

#ThrowbackThursday Old School Summer Jams

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!
