June 25th 1996 Tevin Campbell releases his third album "Back To The World"

Another addition of some of my favorite albums from 1996, and I continue on with another one and this time Mr. Tevin Campbell up next. A year earlier Tevin voice could be heard as the singer powerline in the Disney Goof Troop Movie. In the summer of 96 Tevin made his return back on the scene with his  third album "Back To The World" single of the same title made its on urban radio and video stations. Tevin came back with a bit of a different look. He had extensions, the look was different and the sound was a bit more mature.

On his 1993 album "Im Ready" Tevin showed signs of maturity and on back to the world he continued to show his growth in his sound. Songs like "Tell Me Where, I got it bad, Could You Learn To Love, Dry Yours Eyes". Showed Signs of a teenager transitioning into a young adult, this album is one of Tevin underated albums out of his collection. 

Everyone remembers "Can We Talk, Goodbye, Tell Me What You Want To Do! from his earlier projects. And those are good songs of course, his third project had some good songs on it as well. BTTW had some gems on it, my Favorite track is the babyface written track "Could You Learn To Love". Vocally Tevin is also underated and on this song his voice is at it's best and with Babyface song writing ablities you cannot go wrong.

This was a good album by Tevin, a definite must have for the collection, I currently have a couple songs from the album on my Ipod playlist. As I do these throw back album reviews, it blows my mind that these some of these albums are already 20 year old. 

Time flies when your having fun.........

June 11th 1996 Mona Lisa released her debut 11-20-79

As I continue with my series of great albums of 1996, this album that I am featuring on this post is probably in my top 10 of  my top 100 favorite albums. I promise I will treat you all to that list one day soon, I have been mentally creating that list forever, as old albums stay the same, new albums come out so stay tuned. Anyway this album featured on today's post is an album that I still play on a regular basis to this day.

Movie soundtracks was big in the 90s, sometimes even bigger than regular albums, the Wayans brothers had this hilarious move called "Don't be a menace while drinking your juice in south central" a spoof on all the hood classic films in the 90s.  The soundtrack was even better, R&B singer Joe had one of the biggest hits that helped him become name in R&B. He had a song called "All The Things…

What's Going On?

I may talk about music and culture, It is my way to ease the pain with all the things I see going on in this world. But it is too much to ignore, last weekend there was bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia. As of right now it has been reported that 300 lives has been lost due the terrorist attack.

I do my best to keep up with what is going on, whether it's in pop culture, local or national news. And with this recent terrorist attack. The one thing I don't see flooding up and down my time lines on my social media feed. Is  #PrayForSomalia, that is something that is very scarce across the feeds. But I bet your bottom dollar I can see the endless memes of bitches not being shit and its numerous likes.

That goes without fail, I posted a few links about this horrific incident and all I have heard is crickets. If I posted a joke and made fun of reality star. It would have been likes and comments galore. I am not tell…

1997 Part II

I was sixteen years old in 1997, music was life back then for me, and in that year I needed it more then ever, My freshmen year of high school was 1996 - 1997 and during that school year I was at a school I did not want to be at. In the city of Buffalo at that time, during 8th grade year students had to pick the top choices of the high school they wanted to go to. It was all based on grades during 7th grade year and first grade quarter of 8th grade.

Math was my weakest subject, and the schools that I chose at the time a student had to excel well in the area of math. And me not being on my A game it caused me to loose out on all of my choices of the schools I wanted to attend. So in fall of 1996 I was at my district school. While all my Jr. high friends was at the school of their choices living the high life.

I had to make a daily trip to south Buffalo, a place I did not want to be, what kept me calm to and from schoo…
