Music can send you down a trip on memory lane, it’ll make you remember a loved one or a fun time in your life or maybe even that one night with that special someone… you know what i’m talking about. We at 1833 are no different and want to celebrate the past with our weekly segment THROWBACK THURSDAY’S; check below to see what era our contributors are stuck in this week and come back every thursday to find out what songs you forgot you missed.
Earl has been to reform school and renounced his rape lyrics since this songs creation, Tyler’s in a whole other world with his music now, a lot has changed with OF since this song came out, so heres to evolving but always remembering where you started from.
“Shit i’ll pass class when my dad starts giving shits, but as long as our relationship is turd-less imma keep burning rubber and fucking these beats with burnt dick”.
The Duke. This is a deep jazz cut I only know about because of the fiction writer Haruki Murakami (yeah I’m literary). Anyway, we all know pain.
In regards to the situation in Baltimore and police brutality as a whole: The Roots and Black Thought have always donated incredible examinations of political issues to the musical world and “Guns Are Drawn” is too good of an example of this not to bring it up today. This fight will not be won quickly, and it is up to us to withstand the fight until we see the change we desire.
“That’s why we can’t shake it or escape the problem
Its like a game of roulette the barrel revolving
They only wanna see us occupying a coffin
Mothers crying too often from they lost child leaving
From trying to get over, get under, get even
Get inside getting, getting dumped, getting greedy
We got to get it right
It ain’t about to be easy”
“My first song was like 48 bars with no hook.”
Taking it back this week with some Nappy Roots. This was a great summer banger from my childhood, it’s reminiscent of the days before I had any responsibility and summer meant biking around the hood and no school and no real responsibility whatsoever. I know I’ll never have anymore summers like that, but I’m posting this because it is inevitable that this spring will eventually lead to summer and I’ll do my best to recreate those good times…
My friend Arnez is in a bit of a jam, I think it brightened his day to make my TBT pick. Arnez chose “Leather So Soft,” a classic from the Like Father, Like Son album that dropped on Halloween of 2006. Lil Wayne, Birdman and Cash Money are no strangers to struggle, “Leather So Soft” takes us back to simpler times for squad all the way around. #FreeNez
“I get money hoe fuck what you talkin’ ’bout
Straight out the slaughterhouse straight out the dragon’s mouth
Fire you can’t put out tires are standin’ out
The coupe look pigeon-toed I be in a different mode”
