Guilty Pleasures: Trashy R&B


When I wasn’t going crazy studying for my final, writing term papers, and doing my project, you could find me jammin’ to some old R&B. I’m not talkin’ Marvin Gaye/Stevie Wonder old. I mean 702/Public Announcement/Teddy Riley-ish old.

I have a soft spot for R&B from the late 80’s to the early 00’s. I grew up on it, so it’s customary to go back and  play “Yo, remember THIS song” from time to time.  These are just a few joints that I had in my rotation in order to keep me sane.

Subway ft. 702 – Hide n’ Seek

My study group lost it when I ran this song back. Whatever happened to Subway anyway? This video is hilarious since it features a bunch of teens actin’ way too “grown.”

Changing Faces – Stroke You Up

Robert Kelly blessed us with this duo for a brief period. I think I was like 8 years old when this dropped. Either way I shouldn’t have been listening to any of this stuff at that age haha.

Adina Howard- Freak Like Me

More music that I shouldn’t have been bumpin’ in elementary school. Hey I was a man beyond my years. Now I’m a kid stuck in a man’s body.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

(An R Kelly-less) Public Announcement –  Body Bumpin (Yippie Yi Yo)

YES! I forgot about this joint until a couple of days ago haha. Hell I forgot about Public Announcement until this week. The song and video are so ridiculous to the point that they’re amazing for it. I mean check out those dance moves. On top of that they’re rockin’ NASA jumpsuits in the club fam. And dude had the nerve to rock it with a fargo hat and some Ray Bans? If you have such wares, bust it babies will line up in the club praying that you will indeed bump they body babayyyy.

Ruff Endz – No More

These cats fell off the face of the earth. This video stayed in rotation when I used to watch BET for hours on end. They get demerits for admitting to their previous trickin’ ways in this piece. At least they outline measures to stop such detestable behavior on the hook.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Xscape – Just Kickin’ It

This was the jam in like 2nd grade when I had my penny hardaway fade and my ill part. I’m so glad girls stopped dressing like dudes eons ago. It’s just not right looking at it in today’s world haha.

If I don’t stop this post now it’s going to get out of control. I think you get where I was going with this one. So that’s it, k.i.m. (c) Tribe
