Erykah Badu- "Baduism"

I remember the video she had for "On And On" was a buzzclip on MTV (1997) and they used to play it over and over, it drove me crazy.  I couldn't understand what all the buzz was about Erykah Badu.  I totally didn't get it.  The song sounded so boring, I couldn't even understand why it was a single.  The song was so slow, and she sounded like she was going to fall asleep singing it; I hated her voice.  Then she came out with other singles after that, and I was even less impressed with those songs. 


Now, recently I gave it another chance, and I love that album.  I understand what she is talking about in her music, and I can see the depth of her insight into relationships ("Next Lifetime"), world polotics ("Drama") and knowledge of self ("On and On").  But in 1997 it sounded totally foriegn to me.

Pretty much any of the major East Coast albums released in the mid-90s'..."Illmatic", "Ready to Die", "The Infamous", "Reasonable Doubt", etc.  Back then, I pretty much refused to listen to anything from outside of Cali, the only exceptions being Bone Thugs and the Geto Boys.  I took the East-West beef a little too seriously.

Illmatic - basically i was just getting into hip hop when i bought it and because of that it wernt what i was expecting to hear.

D'Angelo - Brown Sugar

loved it from the outset then went off it..

felt "common - be" from the gate.. and anything by badu


took me a while to 'get' illmatic and longer to get ready to die.. i still think reasonable doubt is trash

back when they came out i thought 36 chambers wwas the shit.. and now i dont like it apart form 1 or 2 tracks.

Same shit over here. Never listened to Biggie before 2000/2001. Than I heard "Juicy (Dj Premier remix)" and decided that I was stupid and just should check out more of his music. And guess what. I LOVE IT. Same goes for Mobb Deep.

Hahaha...I used to bump the hell outta "Dead Serious".  Once "The Chronic" came out, tho, it was G-Funk all day, every day for me.
