Give Me That Feel Good Vibe

Contributed by AdamBernard:

The other day I was watching some old music videos on BET Jazz or VH1 Soul (it was one of the two) and a video block came on that consisted of Heavy D & The Boyz “Nuttin But Love,” Chubb Rock “Just The Two Of Us” and Salt N Pepa “Shoop.” I can’t lie, I rocked out to ‘em. It wasn’t some deep nonsense like it reminded me of a simpler time or brought me back to my youth. The fact of the matter is the songs just made me feel good. There was an innate quality about each one that just makes me want to smile and vibe with them. To me, this is a quality that’s harder to find in music today, but it’s completely worth it when you do. For the full article, visit adambernard.blogspot.com.

Eve Shows The Old School Respect

In an interview with the Press of Atlantic City, Eve tells Robert DiGiacomo she has learned from watching the “old school” of hip-hop stars. “Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Fresh Prince, Big Daddy Kane,” she says. “I’ve met Pepa from Salt-N-Pepa. The first time I met her I think I hugged her for an hour. With Latifah, too, I have so much respect for the old school. Every time you see her, she’s so supportive and so positive. I feel like you have to show the old school respect.”
