Wassup, good folk! Yes, today I'm giving you TWO Throwbacks. Here we go:
Sure, Mary was sniffing and dabbling with that stuff . But damnit, she was THE TRUTH and looked fly as hell! Who didnâ€™t run to the Mamiâ€™s on 145th to get their hair bleached to the max after this video? Sheeeiiiiitt..... sheâ€™s the reason why I highlight my own damn mane every six months! And not only that. Girls everywhere wanted that fly attitude, to be that heartbroken and still have the courage to sing about it. In my opinion, if you are a female in your mid-to-late twenties, Iâ€™m sure Mary was definitely the female whose lyrics you clung to like the teddy bear on your bed, aiding you through that coming-of-age, â€œblack girl trying to riseâ€ phase.
But wait! Itâ€™s a double! Iâ€™m also giving yâ€™all my favorite LL joint of all time.
Damn, I was mad as hell that my name wasnâ€™t included in this song. Doesnâ€™t this remind you of one of those videos that you could create yourself when you went to the mall back in the early â€˜90's? [Peep the running man dancing scenes for example]
True, I know I said Iâ€™d blog a throwback that you all chose. But I realized that on a day like today, it would be appropriate for me to give you two of my favorite throwbacks. And itâ€™s especially significant that they came from Mary and LL because both of these artists had to transition from their original selves (or manner of living) to get to the point where they are today.
Change, and transitioning, I have found, is imminent for all of us.
