Listening To… (3/12)

…these 90s R&B/Rap songs that are oddly on repeat for me today. 

Side note: because I’m an out-of-touch old, apparently Tevin’s “Can We Talk” is now some social media challenge among the youths. Here’s a challenge I’d like to see from the youths: make a song without autotune, pedestrian tacky lyrics, and a rap or dance beat mixed in. 

Gotta love it when you watch old school vids and parts of it gets blurred out and you’re wondering what they’re actually censoring. That’s just melons in that fruit stand, not a bunch of titties out. (Uh, wait.) 

I discovered this song 21 years after its original release (thank the 90s R&B music channels on Comcast for that). Also, Craig Mack (RIP) should’ve been more major than what he got from the rap game. 

Yet another song I discovered years after its release. The vocals on this track! The 90s were the last great decade for, among many, many other things, male R&B groups. And when I play this and the “Vibin'” song, I’m reminded of my spring trip in LA back in 2016. The weather was exquisite, I went to DragCon and met some amazing queens, and my Penguins knocked out the Caps in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs! (I’ll save the rest for a future Travel Slut Diaries post.)
