Flashback Friday: Dwele and Queen Latifah

Happy Friday, folks! Set your weekend off right with these joints.


Dwele, Subject (2003)

In 2003, neo-soul was at its apex with new faces coming on the scene at a rapid pace. Dwele was among them, and it didn’t take long for him to make his mark. His debut, Subject, has remained a fan favorite for years.

Queen Latifah, Order in the Court (1998)

While y’all watch your faves catfight on Twitter over who is or is not the queen of rap, I just turn up Latifah. By 1998 La was beginning to be more known for Hollywood stardom than MCing, but she had no problem grabbing the mic and regaining her throne on her fourth LP. This release flew under the radar thanks to 1998’s infamous glut of high-profile classics, but it was proof that the queen hadn’t lost a step.
