Let's Ride

Unnnnnh! It's that time of the week folks. Throwback Thursdays.

Let's rewind back to '97 (my sophomore year of HS), when No Limit was pretty much running radio and video. Mystikal, Mia X, C-Murda, Magic...yeah, you know you were at Best Buy or Target every Tuesday copping the latest No Limit joint (because they dropped an album every week if not two in one week), which you heard P saying "Unnnnnnh!" in the background on about every song. You or someone you knew or know had that "I'm 'Bout It" on VHS, and it soon became the phrase of the moment. Those 504 boys had music on lock.

And just when you were about tired of 'em, the West coast, 6'8" cutie, Montell "This is How We Do It" Jordan (shout out to the Nupes) collaborated with P and Silk to drop "Let's Ride." Who wasn't bumping this joint in the ride, or trying to grind it out to this at the latest party? Some of my girls copped the single...NO! I copped the entire CD, and Montell has now became the "2-hitter quitter" to me, because he only gives you two quality songs off the album. (Don't believe me? Go through his albums and peep.) But this song is my joint and everytime I hear, I can't help but think of the great memories of 10th grade, lol.

Video moments: Those girls took chair dancing to a whole 'nother level. I promise Shawty Lo fashioned his "Cheddar Chase" after whatever dance that P is doing in the video (jogging in place?). Those fur coats with the skullies are a hot mess.... *sigh* I miss the 90s....

OMG! I love throwback Thursday. Sophomore year was so much fun. I was new on the cheer squad. Q n 'nem won the state championship, I dressed better then than I do now. (We looked like we were on our way to a party every day at school).

And at any given moment you could hear people in the hallway going "uhhhnnnn na na na na." And in the Chi followed by "Hold up, wait a minute"
