This one is for my head boppers.. the rap lovers! — Today’s THROWBACK VIDEO OF THE DAY goes out to “I Got Made” performed by the iconic hip hop emcee, Special Ed. Man, this track came out in 1989 when he was only 16 years old! Plus, it’s a feature off the album, ‘Youngest In Charge’ which sold over half a million copies under the label, Arista Records LLC. Hitman aka Howie Tee must have been one proud producer.
“Superwoman (Pt. II)” is the most successful song Lil’ Mo has to this date! The remix features the then-unknown rap lyricist, Fabolous. This throwback single was released in 2001 off the debut album ‘Based On A True Story.’ Many listeners can agree that “Superwoman” is an anthem promoting the empowerment of women, globally. The remix was produced by hip hop’s very own DJ Clue and Ken “Duro” Ifill, brought to you by Elektra Records.
Let’s take it back a bit when Canibus aka Germaine Williams was at war with LL Cool J. This beef was a huge deal in hip hop history! It all started when LL took offence to a few lyrics Canibus made in the original song, “4, 3, 2, 1” – The line in the song goes, “L, is that a mic on your arm? Let me borrow that”. LL struck back at Canibus with an indirect diss on the same record. Before the song was released, LL approached Canibus and asked him to change his lyrics in order to remain on the song… Canibus agreed… But LL Cool J kept his lyrics anyway.
