[Mood Tune] Buddy x Musiq Soulchild

Of course the ultimate shuffle daddy, Pandora, laid this throwback track on me. Automatically giving that summer crush vibe, Buddy by Musiq Soulchild is a great song. The Taana Gardner sample from Heartbeat makes me want to hit the wop instantly every time.  You hear so much about the ninja cuff, but Buddy was kind of the anthem for that cuff on the low.

Of course you start off willing and ready to become the boo:

(Sometimes) and maybe I can call you up (sometimes)
And maybe I can take you out sometimes/
So let’s exchange digits and later arrange visits
Either your place or mine, yeah/

But there’s no titles so you can’t be trahn wild out on the other person:

But, but wait, let me explain it
A buddy is an equal beneficial arrangement/
A buddy is a buddy that don’t be complaining
When his or her buddy ain’t the buddy they came wit/

After you get past that (which is usually where shit gets tangled and amnesia sets in), you swoop in for the snatch, 

Baby, what I’m really tryna say is that
The definition of a real buddy is that/
She’s that one down to have fun
And ride shotgun through the city with me/
Together, there’s no limit to what we can do
And once we in it, girl, it’s all about me and you/
So baby, what you say? Don’t pass this by

Or na? Hmm.. #TheTunesBeKnowin

[Mood Tune] Riesling & Rolling Papers x Fabolous

I’ve recently been listening to random older mixtapes. I have these periods (which I’m sure, if you love music you do as well) where an old song is triggered in my head and I want to listen to all the music surrounding that time frame in Hip-Hop  or that artist. “I Don’t See Nobody” did that which made one of Fab’s best mixtapes, There Is No Competition, to be played repeated for about three days. I get into my music state of mind and decide TINC>TINC2>>>TINC3, totally forgetting that The Soul Tape diiiiiiiiiid drop. “Leaving U”, “Wolve in Sheep’s Clothing”, “Slow Down”, and “Riesling & Rolling Papers”… love those records.

Grabbing the Bars of the Day from the smooth Riesling & Rolling Papers, self-explanatory why Fabolous is one of my favorite rappers.

I’m down to earth like gravity, but man we up
Women get around me and they can-not keep their panties up/
Your boy drop jewels, you niggas should ante up
This is food for thought, you bitches fill the pantry up

[MoodTune] Earthquake x Lil’ Wayne

I was singing this song in my head since yesterday morning. Earthquake is always that playa tune for me. Definitely in the top favorite songs along with it’s original (R.I.P. Al Green). This was Tha Carter 2003-04 Wayne when he was nesting in the game for real. Seeing the video took me back to one of my favorite times in hip-hop. Errup Fresh was in the video being that guy! (I love Mannie Fresh, gawd) Shout’s to Baby, young Reginae and Wayne little dreads. (His hair helps tell the story of his whole career though) Jazze Pha made this song the groove absolutely. (I’m way mo’ fly than you/ I’ll take yo dime from you cus she wonna spend all night with mee-eeeee-eee) and Wayne’s verses were rockin’ (Bars of the day.) This song is the anthem until later on tonight. But then again, it’s always the jam.

I appreciate YouTube for things like this.

Sigh… I miss Wayne…
