You know what I like? I like
big butts and I cannot lie books, I mean real books, not those e-books and shit, but real books, deuce here, I gangbang for books. You know, the things that most children of today don’t know about because their noses are stuck in some app or some gaming system. I would go to to the library at reading anytime of the year, in the winter when it snowed and in the summer time, before going to the pool. If you ever needed to find me, chances are I was in the library: holler at a player when you see me in the library trick!
When I was growing up in Denver I would willingly go to the library, without my parents forcing me. Seriously, I would checkout up to 4 books at a times – books ranging from “Choose Your Own Adventures,” to “The Boy That Could Fly” and even “Where the Side Walk Ends” (if you went to elementary school in the 80’s I’m sure you know about where the sidewalk ends). Also, thanks to my third grade teacher and the local library, I developed a fondness for whales, strange I know – not only was I black, living in Denver, which is about as far from an ocean as you could get, but you couldn’t tell me nothing. Momma, I wanted to be star, really doe, I had aspirations of being an oceanographer – again strange I know.
Now what does this have to do with all the tea in China? Truthfully not a motherfucking thing, but
I did save %15 by switching to GEICO after watching Straight Outta Compton twice last weekend, I’m feeling a little nostalgic, which truth be told is something I don’t often, I mean when I look at the slope haircut I had back in the early 90’s and the ugly ass Barney purple Cross Color jeans I wore back in ’93 all I have to say is thank God that the 90’s are over and that haircuts and fashion evolved.
Anyhooo, back to the lecture at hand, since I’m in a rare nostalgic mood, I started thinking about things that I miss from the late 80’s to mid 90’s and I decided to make a list, as a matter of fact I wrote a song about it, like to hear it, here it go. I present to you Breazy’s list of nostalgic things from the 80’s, 90’s and shit.
My nigga, my nigga do you know how many girls I was pulling on the playground in my Coca Cola rugby shirt and Bugle Boy jeans? Shit, I’m not sure what’s more surprising – that this was actually a must have in the 80’s or that Dope Boys along with Heavy D and crew also wore them.
2. black fashion.
With T-shirts with sayings like “Each one, teach one” and big baggy and bright ass pants, what was there not to like about Cross Colours? They were the John Singleton of clothing, making a point to give a message, while making your ass look like a walking box of crayons. And that’s not to say anything about Karl Kani and his baggy as clothing, shit on a windy day your ass would probably blow away in those bed sheets for shirts and parachusetts for pants.
Honorable mention Pelle Pelle, Damani Dada and FUBU.
Martin, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Living Single and not to mention In Living Color, the early 90’s had the best shows that represented African Americans with a majority African American cast. But of course as time went on the powers that be, I guess, decided that TV was getting too Black and let the shows fade away without replacing them with newer shows that represent African Americans, unless you count Cops and the NBA draft.
Honorable mention Hanging with Mr. Cooper, A Different World, Roc and
The Cosby Show.
Fuck Taebo, if you ever wanted to get in shape, just do the choreography from any early 90’s video from artists like BBD or TLC. As a matter of fact MC Hammer and company probably moonlighted as aerobics instructors. How else could he do take after take with all that Full Force gel in his hair and not lose his balance?
Dope, Fresh, Word to the Motha, Audi 5000 and psyche. You can’t tell me that the 80’s and the 90’s had the best slang. The only drawback is that everything sounded like The Migos learning to speak for the first time. Think about it, would you really be caught dead saying something was stupid dope fresh now-a-days? I’ll let that sink in for a minute.
What are some things that you miss from the 80’s and 90’s?
Talk to me, I’ll talk back.
Breazy The Don.
