Flashback Friday: Mia X and Jamie Foxx

It’s another Friday, so y’all know what it is – somebody hit the switch on the time machine. Time to throw it back like an aging stripper.

Mia X, Unlady Like (1997)

I’ve gone on record many times to admit that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the No Limit movement in the late 90s. But the one solider I always saluted was Mama Mia X, who quietly was the best MC on the roster. Like her labelmates, she enjoyed a ton of success circa 1997/1998, with Unlady Like becoming her biggest seller.

Jamie Foxx, Unpredictable (2005)

I love Jamie Foxx the actor, I love Jamie Foxx the comedian, and I even love Jamie Foxx the vocalist. Well, most of the time. Jamie is incredibly talented in the booth but that hasn’t always translated into great albums. His sophomore effort is arguably his most celebrated, thanks to a more than a few memorable cuts. Unpredictable was one of his musical high points.
