I hope all you ghouls and goblins survived Halloween.
I didn’t get any trick-or-treaters. Kids know not to bother mean Old Man Bowser.
I might not have any candy to dish out but I’m always eager to put y’all on to good music. Here’s what on deck today.
Kimberly Jackson is back with your favorite rapper.
Drake, Thank Me Later (2010)
Kim said: “My choice for Flashback Friday is Drake’s first CD. With his solo effort he had such hits as “Fancy” and “Find Your Love.” The CD showed he could fine his own without the rest of his crew.
Edward remembers an icon’s origins.
Eminem, The Slim Shady LP (1999)
Edd said: “I just reviewed Eminem’s latest release, and that made me reminisce about his first LP. I’ll never forget hearing “My Name Is” for the first time. It was the first song our late-night radio DJ played during his set and I thought it was a parody song. And I clearly remember saying to myself ‘this is pretty good for a joke song.’ Nah, joke was on me because Em soon became the best-selling rapper of all time, as well as being one of the game’s premier lyricists. Yeah, I know this technically isn’t his first album (that was Infinite in ’96) but it’s the one that made him America’s nightmare.”
Now, it’s your turn. Email firstname.lastname@example.org hit me up on Twitter @etbowser, or stop by the comments section and share your Flashback Friday album. Leave a couple of sentences describing what makes it so great. I’ll feature your album on the blog.
