Throwback Thursdays: It's Party Time

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 2:57 PM
Throwback Thursdays: It's Party Time

Let's party y'all. Let's go back to the days when hip hop was about throwing parties (sans Moet), chillin with your crew, whylin out (in a good way), and just having a good time. When it was ok to go to a party and dance until your press was a distant, kinky memory. I'm talking Roger Rabbit, Running Man, Cabage Patch, Troop, all of that. This goes out to all the hip hop party joints banging out the jeeps from Compton to Brooklyn.

The Liks: Make Room

It's the Liks baby, It's the Liks. Cali stand up! I couldn't drink a thing but juice when this album dropped, but it continues to be a party favorite. You can't help but have fun (and sip a little something) when you hear this joint. Tash is crazy on the mic.

Pete Rock & CL Smooth: TROY

My cousin used to "house" to this song all the time. You can't escape the horns. Everytime I hear this song, it is so haunting. The Chocolate Boy Wonder does it again (and again). Get we get another reunion?

Chub Rock: Tream 'Em Right

Dance, suckas. You can't help but get up and move when you hear this joint, it's so infectious. This song makes me think of Hale in Strictly Business (don't say you've never seen it). Don't know if that's good or bad, but everytime it comes on I feel compelled to start dancing.

LLCoolJ: Around the Way Girl

LL gave some love to the girls around the way. This song made you proud to be a no-shorts taking girl from the 'hood. Classic.

Black Sheep: Strobelight Honey

I gotta go...Where the hell is Black Sheep? This was the joint. "This or That" gets more play, but this will always be my favorite.

This is but a mere sampling of what I'm feeling now. There are way too many joints to pull out the crate, but I am just reminiscing. I am compiling a list of early 90s joints for my iPod & a sista needs suggestions.

What are your favorite party joints?

    The music I'm listening to at the moment is Sam Cooke (Album - the Man and his music) - not sure if it counts as party music!...anyway you inspired me to do a post on music!

    "Kids at the crib want dibs on the the big man...can he come out, can he come out and slam a jam!" Yo, this was my music back in the day. You took me back to my days at SSC. Black college living was sublime. Wow! Those were the days. :)
    I overlooked this yesterday because I definitely came by???

    Have a good weekend!

    The Sam Cooke album that you mentioned is one of my favorites! You know that Sam is having his party, "...over at Mary's Place." :) I love it.

    J: i stttttttttilllll can't remember the song you're talking about. i know i probably heard it, but i just need to hear it now to refresh the memory.

    RR: sis, i'm glad i inspired you. i will most definitely have to check out your post on music!

    Stephen: i posted late in the afternoon, so you may have not seen it. i always wondered what black college life was like. i went to a "white" university. maybe you should do a post about it! i often wondered if it was like the show "A Different World"?

    Yeah - when I think about it, he's actually got a lot of party tracks including "Having a Party", and "Twistin' the Night Away."
