I have become like parents.
I now know how they felt when they were complaining about my music in the 90s, which was among other comments, not as good as the music they grew up listening to blah blah blah.. I feel the same way they did then about rap music NOW. I’m a 90s kid. So I loved good rap music, which seems to be dwindling these days. So my throwback is a rarely heard song by Heavy D. And The Boyz called, “You Can’t See What I can See.” It was a b-side to their single “Don’t Curse.” In a time now where rappers can’t seem to find a belt to pull up their pathetic pants and drop the n word on a regular basis, it’s nice to be able to go back in the 90s golden era of rap and pull up this gem. Heavy was always clean cut, respected women, knew the meaning of a word “belt” and kept it kid friendly for the most part. Sure he got a little rough around the edges in trying to prove his street credibility, but he still threw down without insulting anyone as evident in this clip.
Rest in Peace Heavy D. You’re still missed. STILL. MISSED. Take note horrible rappers. This is how it’s done. My particularly favorite line? “Not Fred Flintstone but I’ll make your bed rock…”
