The Nappy Roots songs got me thinking of this one. Another NC native, Anthony Hamilton is a beast! This song is so real! I don’t normally listen to R&B stuff, but I’ll make an exception for anyone with a unique voice like this. Without sounding too cliché, it’s like you can hear the pain in his voice. I love this song. North Carolina, represent.
This is still one of my favorite songs ever. If you lived in NC when this came out then you know the hype was real. I was lucky enough to experience the energy at the local skating rink, school dances and backyard barbecues. This song and his first album bring back a lot of memories for me. I still get hella hyped for the chorus. This is also one of my favorite beats Timbaland ever did. There’s a handful of bangers on Petey’s debut, Diary of A Sinner.
(Side Note : Petey is in jail right now for gun related charges. He’ll be out mid 2014 though.)
I wish these dudes would’ve got bigger than they did. This song is classic to me. I thought they were going to be the Kentucky fried version of Bone Thugs or Wu-Tang. Anthony Hamilton kills the hook too! The end of the video where they’re all in the house makes me miss meals like that. I’m trying to stop eating pork, but damn… I love it.
Sorry (not sorry) for the Southern Rap videos. There’s more to come. I’m really missing the South lately. This is the Rap I partially grew up on. But I don’t want to get into that. This would turn into a mega long post. For now, appreciate Juve The Great and a very young Lil’ Wayne.
"Just.Crew.Shit" Official Video Bam Circa ‘86 Produced by The Visualists/Directed by Eric Casas
The homie Bamalamadingdong dropped a video for his new song “Just.Crew.Shit”. As a day in the life of Bam and the homies; the video is filled with relaxed visuals, locales the posse usually haunts, and the typical tom foolery you can see the 8th & G Gang partaking in. The video opens in Dope Sauce, circles the block, makes a pit stop by 5&A Dime, and ends where it started as the song closes.
To stay up with Bam follow him on Twitter : @BamCirca86, Instagram : @BamCirca86, and here on Tumblr : bamcirca86blog.
Enjoy Bam’s new chillin’ anthem, and stay tuned for more from the 8th & G crew.
