It's Thursday, so that means Raekwon is back with another Throwback record paying homage to true oldies with different freestyles. This serves as the fifth instalment in his ongoing series, following up last week's flip of Teena Marie's "Ooh La La La."
Now that Dr. Dre is officially hip-hop's first billionaire, thanks to a very lucrative deal with Apple for Beats Electronics, we're paying homage to the OG with our throwback record from Dre's classic Chronic 2001 album.
Before Wale found mainstream success he was a regular DMV rapper on his mixtape grind. The Mixtape About Nothing was probably one of his most well-received and reviewed mixtape projects, garnering him a healthy dose of buzz back in 2008.
Y'all remember Tech N9ne's 2010 track "Hard Liquor" or nah? It was included on his XXL-backed Bad Season mixtape, which dropped that same year, and finds him professing his love for hard alcohol over production from Dr. Dre and Travis Barker.
For today's throwback track of the day we head back to 2009's How Fly mixtape from Spitta and Wiz Khalifa. At the time it dropped it was highly anticipated, and while the fans always wanted to hear a How Fly 2, it never came to fruition.
We certainly hope y'all remember this choice selection from DJ Kay Slay’s 2003 mixtape Diplomats Volume 1. Cam'ron's mixtape record is impressive, to say the least, rivalling that of New York peers such as 50 Cent, Jay Z and Nas.
This past Saturday, on February 15th, marked fifteen years since Big L's death, when he was shot nine times in his native Harlem. The unfortunate death of L saw a talented, lyrical MC of legendary status leave us before his prime.
The other day this track randomly popped up on shuffle, and it felt like a good track to use as a throwback record this Thursday, especially since we just received news of Remy Ma's return to the world.
For today's Throwback Thursday record we've opted to go with Game. The West Coast rapper has always been prolific when it comes to the mixtape game, starting in 2002 with his debut tape You Know What It Is, Vol. 1, all the way up to present day.
J. Cole had quite a big week. He celebrated his 29th birthday, he became a label head with his Dreamville imprint singing a deal with Interscope Records, and he finally received a Roc-A-Fella chain from the boss man Hov.
