Live At The BBQ

It’s Flashback Friday time! Normally we pay homage to an artist who’s been off the radar for a minute, but on this holiday weekend I’ma give it up for the cookout. No, not the C level flick starring Ja Rule and Meagan Good, I’m talking about the moments in rap when the good cheer, good food, and good music are on display. — Rondell Conway

DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince “Summertime”

This is only my all-time favorite summer song.

Dr. Dre “Nuthin’ But A G Thang”

DTP  “Growing Pains (Do It Again)”

The Dove Shack “Summertime In The LBC”

“Fools get tossed if they reach across my barbeque grill” Believe that!

LL Cool J “Lougin’ (Who Do You Love)”

It’s a Queens thing

2Pac “I Get Around”

Thugs gotta eat too!

Ja Rule “Livin’ It Up”

The good ole days at the Inc.

Wrecks N Effect “New Jack Swing”

Pardon the colorful outfits and all that, but this joint still knocks at the BBQ.

What other videos can you cook up?

    Fuck the 4th of July. Black people were slaves for 80+ more years. Does anyone actually know when Blacks were freed?

      History Lesson*

      On June 19th aka “Juneteenth” Slaves were considered more or less free individuals in the U.S.
      sidenote* I personally believe we were always free. No fuckin law made by man can destroy something that man never had control over in the first place. Its just my perspective.

        June 19th only applys to the slaves in Texas who were freed 3 years later after the other states, on June 19th 1865. Slaves were freed September 22, 1862 by the Emancipation Proclamation. Other states just started honoring that holiday as their own, but it originated in Texas.
