Me & my older bro love hip-hop from 90’s. We used to listen to it quite a lot growing up in Bahrain. From Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff, Skee-Lo, Lucas, Kriss Kross to Naughty by Nature, Tribe Called Quest, Das EFX, and early Tupac. Hip-hop wasn’t all about the pimp-life, b****es, ho’s, bling and the merchandising it is these days. And there was no auto-tune back then. Rap could have been happy, dark and sometimes even funny. Rap and hip-hop back in the 90’s was also commonly associated with dancing. From the ‘chicken dance‘ to just bobbing your head to the heavy beats.
Of course now, things are different. Which is why it was so refreshing to hear about B.o.B.
