I don’t feel old physically, well at least most of the time.
But every now and then I stumble across a video or song that makes me say, “Man, that song was out that long ago?”
Well, watching this video and hearing this song again definitely made me make that statement and it’s still one of my favorites to this day.
This was back before Busta Rhymes went all, well…Busta Rhymes on us and hip-hop was truly real. Can you imagine a rapper rhyming about how they don’t have a car these days? If anything, they rap more about the cars they don’t have, and have been doing so since the late ’90’s.
Do you remember this jam by the Leaders Of the New School? If so, what’s your favorite memory when this song was out and what were you driving?
I was bouncing my old ’79 Cutlass with a 305ci. out of a ’75 Nova that me and my friends dropped in. We thought we were the baddest around as my cousin and I popped a Holley dual-feed carb on top of a stock motor (insert laugh track there). The Delco radio in the Cutty was one of the best I’ve ever had, but the car itself had rust so bad, you could see the back wheel spinning if you pulled up the corner of the back seat! But believe it or not, the Cut-Dog lasted a few more owners as my dad took it off my hands and later one of my other boys would be the proud owner.
My oldest son and I had some good times cruising in that car, but it would get even better as The Stang would soon follow.
Now that’s my “Sobb Story”…what’s yours?
