#TBT – Cassidy w/ R. Kelly – Hotel

Y’all forgot about Cassidy right?

Yeah me too.

But he’s a Philly cat and this was his debut single…with the help from the Pied Piper of RnB. Swizz Beats cashed in too. And eventually Psy [from”Gangnam Style”] cashed in too…with a AIDS P.S.A. track titled, “Condom Style.” As expected, it’s terrible with the hook, “Stroke em Condom Style.”

I guess he kinda lost touch after he did that bid for the murder rap.

#TBT – The Roots – What They Do

Sophomore effort, Illadelph Halflife, was definitely getting heavy rotation in the the tape deck of my Acura Legend.

This was when the core of the group was just four. This was before Black Thought wore shades inside. This was before ?uestlove lost weight and opened up a failed fried chicken spot.

For those that don’t know anything before Things Fall Apart, here’s a taste at the flavor from the ’96 version of The Roots.

Oh and Raphael Saadiq (Tony! Toni! Tone!) on the hook.
