Whatever your your feelings towards Jarule theres no denying, the man pumped out some hits. One in specific was his lead off single ‘Holla Holla’ a track that saw a dope remix and one that was on constant rotation for over a year. Take a trip back to the last year before Y2K.
Released back in 1996 ‘Get A Hold’ was one of a few stand out tracks from an album that should be in every Tribe fans collection. If you were lucky you snagged the limited edition CD featuring a holographic print on top of the standard booklet. Take a trip back to the Reasonable doubt, Jordan XI, Wayans Bros. era below and check out this classic.

In Living Color, Martin, Seinfeld, Married With Children, Nas Halftime, an unsigned B.I.G., Karl Kani, SNES, Jordan VII’s, the Dream Team etc. Still wondering what the 90′s hype was all about? Take a trip back with a song we all loved for the chorus, Father MC’s One Night Stand.
Released in 1997 this late 90′s track still brings back good vibes. Sure, we were still grieving the loss of Pac and Big but life wasn’t as fast paced and cell phones hadn’t yet ruined a ride on the train or walk down the block for that matter. Take a trip back below.
I still remember the day I went to scoop my copy of Ready To Die. Lets rewind. I had heard Big’s work on the Who’s The Man? soundtrack a year or so earlier but outside of that there wasn’t much material (at least that I had access to). Then, while watching Video Music Box on a saturday morning during the summer of 1994, I caught the first showing of the video to ‘Juicy’. Me = hooked. A few weeks later I headed over to to Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream NY and picked up the cassette single to ‘Juicy’ with the B side ‘Unbelievable’ and the hype just continued. In late September me and two of my boys hopped on the bus back to Green Acres Mall on a cold fall day to scoop Ready To Die and use the money that was supposed to go to my school lunch to buy the album (on CD). Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat battles would never be the same, listen to one of my repeat songs (where you would take your little boom box and hit that repeat button so you didn’t have to get up and keep pressing the back arrow) below!
Foxy Brown and Lil’ Kim on a track? The Remix shall heal all. Thats right folks, in 1996 these sworn enemies teamed up for this classic remix of Total’s single ‘No One Else’. This is the Remix……..Check it out below.
