Flashback Friday: Queen Latifah and Sean Price

How’s your Friday going? Now that you’ve stopped by Soul In Stereo, I’m sure your day is much improved.

Here’s what we’re rocking to.

Queen Latifah, Nature of a Sista (1991)

After crafting our list of the 10 best female rappers in history, I’ve been revisiting Latifah’s catalog, and man, it’s so underrated. Her messages of black empowerment remain relevant today, her wordplay is still remarkable, and she utilized R&B melodies in her flow well before it became commonplace.  Y’all may only know Latifah the Actress, but I miss Latifah the MC.

“How Do I Love Thee”

Sean Price, Mic Tyson (2012)

Yeah this isn’t much of a throwback — the album’s only a few years old — but who cares, this is my site. And this album goes super hard. P has been crushing mics since his days with Heltah Skeltah and Mic Tyson is easily his best work. It’s absolutely nothing but 40-minutes of jaw-breaking punchlines. The game needs a sequel, stat.
