You Know What today is... Old School Friday!
In case you are new around these parts and don't know what "Old School Friday" is, well it is grown folks MUSIC! Yes we post some music that comes from some time before 1999, (hopefully) to relive some memories, and to educate or just entertain each other.
Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my music I had to sign up to join! To join in the Old School Friday Fun go Here for guidelines.

I love my Old School music! It makes you want to love, think, get involved or just groove! This is a very complicated theme for me because I don't equate "Old School" with drinking (I'm sure the real Old Schoolers probably do!). I did the most of my drinking in the late 90's early 2000's. When I think of songs to drink to I think of me and a past friend of mine hitting the clubs and posting up in the VIP sections (My friend's brother was a drug dealer so we usually got preferential treatment) drinking Hennessey. The late 90's through to about 2002 had some awesome rap talent! The nights started out mild and the more we drank, of course the louder and wilder we got. At the pinnacle of these outings we were bumping songs that I will not post here because of the lyrics & content but we listened to A LOT of Wu Tang, DMX and 2Pac to name a few! I found a semi-clean DMX to post. This was/is a very talented young man who unfortunately let his hard life get the best of him.
Slippin' - DMX & Aaliyah
As the nights wound down and we were good and ...saucy, we switched to reggae. That meant a lot of Buju Banton, Red Rat, Mr. Vegas, Lady Saw and of course Beenie Man! We got a good spot right in front of the speakers, requested our last songs for the night and got an ear full of...
Boom Bye Bye - Buju Banton
Who Am I - Beenie Man
