Listening to the Pandora "I Got It Made" channel. No obscure tracks, but all good.

alliteration has been underused, no?
"bumpin with a big black broad named Belinda..."
one that always pops in my head is Slick Rick's "it's cool when you cause a cozy condition..."

not 'old' so much as it is 'not new', but i can't stop playing this song these days. when I was more active in theatre, I used to play this and "B.M.F." before shows to fire myself up.

Slide off in my six n****
I dont want yo bitch n****
Hoes been wantin me for too long
Love this gangsta shit that im on
Ridin on chrome heavy foot
What else can she do but look
Coogied up from head to toe
Keep me a coupla stacks at the floor
Back to the floor aint I nice
Play with the cash and u playin with ya life
And anyone that u choose ya still lose
And then ima tax on them mothafuckin dues
I do it for the blues I do it for the bloods
Fuck the feds and fuck the judge
Im about to drop a bomb n****
Watch out for saddam n****

yeah it's great. if you like classic early 90s bay stuff you should check out IMP (Ill Mannered Playaz). Both 'back in the days' and the s/t albums are great.

i never really recognized the distinct memphis sound, and i never really even got into three six mafia that much even though i used to buy every hypnotize minds release i saw in used cd stores. maybe it's because it never had an impact beyond the midwest and the south, so there were never popularized records like houston has records that came out in the 90s and have been sampled and redone and quoted from and interpolated dozens of times in houston and way outside, and the sound was mostly gone by the 2000s. these tapes sound similar to old midwest and south album, kind of... but there are similarities, the creepy nintendo shit and cheap crispness. i'm into it.

i don't even know what this mack 187 is, really. to me it could have been made in 2005 or 2015 because i don't really have any context for it, instrumentals and chants over.... i want someone to listen to it and explain what i'm hearing here.

maybe it's some memphis rap vaporwave shit, i dunno.

So this series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TB2enM7afA

led me to search to download that World Renown track (which itself was sampled in something. the "feel the vibe" line. blanking on what sampled it). Only thing I found it on was this Dj Premier compliation: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BN2FCH0/ref=pd_mp3_als_qp_pa

There's 3 volumes of that and they're all really good. Had only heard a few of the cuts before.
