Flashback Friday: Busta Rhymes and Sade

This was one of those weeks that had a playa sprinting toward Friday.


So let’s set the weekend off in a big way. Flashback time.

Busta Rhymes, It Ain’t Safe No More (2002)

Earlier this week we ranking the legendary discography of A Tribe Called Quest, which reminded me how, in some ways, they’re still a little unsung, especially in the eyes of younger fans. Tribe’s boy Busta is equally unappreciated – for my money, he’s still one of the most creative and important artists of his era. His 2002 effort might not be as renowned as his more notable LPs but it certainly had its moments.

Sade, Solider of Love (2010)

Yesterday, social media celebrated the birthday of the beloved Aaliyah but let’s not forget that she shared a b’day with another incredible artist. At 61, Sade Adu is still as timeless as ever. It’s been a whole decade since she’s given us an album. We’re overdue.
