Warning: It’s real funky up in here 🙂
The wind shifts South
Another son is born
He has something to say
And he will NOT be bullshitting
My Girl: “He fucked up so I had to take it outta his ass!”
Lady G: “Yeeeeaaaah…but did you have to bust out the ENTIRE windshield to do it?”
My Girl: “He lucky that’s all I did!”
Lady G: “But the ENTIRE windshield?”
My Girl: “Anyway, chile pleeze…I came over here to see the baby!”
Lady G: (Hands the baby to friend.)
My Girl: “Look at little fatman! He sooo cute! He look just like you and his daddy!”
Lady G: “Back to the subject at hand…Did he call the police on you?”
My Girl: “Are you serious? Chile, he know better than that, hell we just now finished knockin’ boots right before I came over here.”

YAAASSSSS! Love is complicated as hell!
Y’all my Mama used to warn me ‘bout that “killin’ kinda of love. You know those relationships where one of the parties says, “If I can’t have you, nobody else will!”
Mama said, if a man ever says that to you, your ass better run like hell!
Anyway, while “my girl” was not in a ‘killin’” kinda relationship, she and her dude did engage in more than a little bit of craziness!
Don’t act like you don’t know folks in relationships like that! Hell you’re probably in one or you just got out of one yourself!
How are y’all doing on this magnificent afternoon in 1994? Is all going well in your world?
As for me? I’m just chilling with my sweet baby boy!
To be fair, I must apologize in advance. This list is a bit long. I was having way too much fun so please forgive me!
My Jams ‘94 (Tha 9Quad)
Switch by TLC
Every once in awhile you just gotta switch shit!
“Erase, replace, embrace, new face.”
Kick your game by TLC
Dude, I might be willing to spend some time with you…
“…but it depends on how you kick yo’ game.”
“I just wanna know if you can kick some game come with something more clever than just your name…”
Lady G loves listening to a l’il game….if it’s good!
Anytime Anyplace by Janet Jackson
This damn thang was so hot back in the Spring of ‘94
“I don’t wanna stop just because people walkin’ by watching us…”
Janet didn’t give a damn what they thought!
Your Body’s Calling by R.Kelly
Oh he DID that!
Who doesn’t like that jam?
Feenin’ by Jodeci
You got me feenin’ like a straight up junkie!
“You got me feenin’”
Dream on Dreamer by Brand New Heavies
Me and my baby boy danced all over the place to this jam!
Mama was holding that baby tight!
So precious—cannot be replaced!
“Dream on dreamer…”
Happy by Mary J. Blige
“How can I love somebody else
If I can’t love myself enough
To know when it’s time
Time to let go”
What the hell else can I add to that?
My Life LP by Mary J Blige
I blasted this entire album all day every day back in ‘94!
YAAASSSSS! Hell I can’t even name all of the jams on this one.
Just go back and revisit it baby! You will be happy you did!
Always and Forever by Luther Vandross
OK, everybody knows that Heatwave (my play cousins) tore this mug up back in ‘76-77. Well honey Lootha decided to remake it in ‘94!
Did he kill it?
But I’m still partial to the original! Baby when ‘my cousin’ Johnny rode that damn “you” all the way into falsetto heaven! “You, YOU, You, You….”
You Send Me Swingin by Mint Condition
“You send me swangin’”
I just can’t with Mint Condition!
Them boys let it be known that they were not messing around! Not even a little bit!
How Many Ways by Toni Braxton
There go Queen Diva Toni with that sexy Alto!
“Let me count the ways.”
On and On by Janet Jackson
Some people know this as “The Summertime song.”
It samples “Family Affair” by Sly and the Family Stone.
From what I understand, it was never really released as a single; it was a b-side jam. Don’t quote me, just google the shit for yourself.
Anywhats, we jammed it during the summer of ‘94!
“And the feeling goes on, and on, and on…”
Prayer for the Dying by Seal
My Granddaddy went to be with the Lord in ‘94.
Afterwards, I used to listen to this song and cry my eyes out about it.
Still miss him.
A Kiss From A Rose by Seal
I was telling a fellow blogger that I once read that Seal had a penchant for using old English folk melodies in some of his songs. Again, Lady G simply cannot be bothered to google it.
Maybe Roger and my UK followers can listen to this jam and tell me if that sounds true.
Roger is it, indeed, Athurian? From the days of yore?
Part-Time Lover by H-Town
“If you don’t mind, I’ll do you just fine…I will be your part-time lover.”
Dino and them boys DID that!
Can you get wit’ it by Usher
Well I’d like to get wit’ it but you too damn young Urrsha!
Don’t laugh! Y’all know that’s how country black folks pronounce “Usher”
Anyway, Usher still a cute lil boy tho’!
Anybody here on the urrsha board?
See what I mean?
Think of You by Usher
“Yes, yes y’all, to da beat y’all!”
Then they went and interpolated or sampled jazz great Ronnie Laws!
Hell if it worked for Black Moon on “Who got da props” then why not try it with Urrsha.
What about Us by Jodeci
JO JO: “I wanna love you, I wanna love you…”
But did Devante Swing throw in a musical nod to Prince?
“Do you lady!”
Yes he did!
“Satisfaction guaranteed if you come and get with me.”
Diary of a Mad Band!
Take a Bow by Madonna
Madonna was showing out in the early and mid ‘90’s! Check out any of her stuff from back then. You can’t go wrong.
A bullfighter? Okaaaay?
Here Comes the Hotstepper
“Act like you know Rico… I know what Bo don’t know!”
Hey Poley? Where ‘dem hotsteppas at?
Poley is my cousin and she calls her high-heeled shoes “hotsteppas”
Low Down Dirty Shame Soundtrack
The whole damn thang!
In the mood by CeCe Peniston
CeCe is back! My ‘girls’ in the club loved some CeCe!
I’m not over you by CeCe Peniston
“Im not, not over you…over you…over you!”
If that’s your boyfriend by Meshell N’degeocello
DA BASS IS BACK! In full effect!
But this time around it’s being thumped, slapped and plucked to death by a badass CHICK!
Baybee, Uncle Larry and Uncle Louis (Larry Graham and Louis “Thunder Thumbs” Johnson respectively for the whippersnappers) would be soooooo proud!
Get it girl!
“If that’s your boyfriend he wasn’t last night!”
Where my Queens at? Let’s hit the floor ladies!
Taste your love by Horace Brown
Horace you so nasty!
But in a good way.
I Can Go Deep by Silk
“I can go deep if you let me.”
A Little Somethin’ by A Few Good Men
“Go where you wanna go
do what you you wanna do
In the day
At night it’s my way”
(Here’s a little somethin’ that’ll make you stay)
Chocolate Thai by Y?N-Vee
I don’t know nothing ’bout no weed so I have to listen to this jam metaphorically!
An allegory of sorts–but not really 😉
To be honest, I could jam to Donald Trump if he was singing over Rick James’ “Mary Jane”
No shade, that’s precisely what these Queen Diva’s did.
Hip Hop Jams
Take it Easy by Mad Lion
I don’t know what the hell he sayin’ so all I say is:
“Take it easy, what, take it easy, what…”
That beat was sick as hell!
Now, unless I’m mistaken I did hear him say “If you touch me you must bite de dust.”
Sounds like Jamaican Patois to me!
Don’t get it twisted, Lady G got many peeps from all da islands in de Carribean mon!
What’s up Brothers and Sisters?
Regulate by Warren G. ft. Nate Dogg
Gin and Juice by Snoop Dogg

Sound of da Police by KRS-ONE–
“Whoop! Whoop! Dats da sound of de Police! Whoop! Whoop! dats de sound of de beast!”

The Player’s Ball by Outkast
Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik by Outkast: THIS ENTIRE ALBUM IS THE SHIT!
Get up get out by Outkast : With that funky ass Ceelo Green and Goodie MOB. What y’all know ’bout that?
“Get up get out cut dat bullshit out! Ain’t you sick and tired of havin’ to do without?”
Yessuh! These boys gettin’ ready to change the game.
The East and West gotta start looking South baby!
Well, it is with a heavy heart that I must bid 1994 (Da 9 Quad) farewell!
Thank you for all of the many gifts and lessons that you brought me! I’ll love you always.
May you find peace in the “Archipelago of Last Years.”
Everybody else needs to meet me in comments for the party! Bring your commentary, your jams and your memories! BYOB! LOL 😉
For My Son.
