In my opinion, this is the greatest Hip Hop song ever released by a one-hit wonder.

"Superwoman" was the second single from R&B singer Karyn White's self-titled debut album. Karyn White was the embodiment of the New Jack swing sound originally introduced by Teddy Riley.
As you watch the kitchen scene in this video, try to recall where you've seen it before.
Johnny Gill recorded this classic love ballad when he was only 18-years-old. This song has been remade by various artists over the years. But only Johnny Gill can sing it with such raw emotion and make us feel it.
Y'all remember back in the days when Hip Hop made you feel good and made you have hope for the future? Thank God for YouTube, Dimwars.com, WorldStarHipHop and all the other video sites that preserve the Hip Hop culture and help keep our music alive!
Remember when we were in high school and all the girls wore Turkish link (gold chains) and if it broke then they made earrings to it -- like they meant to do it.
Remember wearing basket weaves, Nike Cortez and footsie socks? And eating pickles with Tootsie Pops?
Remember the Pumas with the fat laces (cuz it was either that or K-Swiss)?
But let me finish this reminiscing and tellin' 'bout when girls was bellin' tight corduroys, like for the boys.
I miss those days, and so I pout like a grown jerk. Wishin' all I had to do now, was finish homework.
It's true, you don't realize really what you got 'til it's gone... and I'm not gonna sing another sad song.
But Sometimes I do sit and reminisce, then think about the years I was raised, back in the days...

Subject: Jam Master Jay Tribute
Today marks the sixth year anniversary of Jam Master Jay's Death so i decided to post a video tribute to JMJ that i made a few years ago while i was still with Hot 107.9. We had an Dr. Pepper sponsored event at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Atlanta where this tribute was played on the big screen and a plaque was presented to Hard Rock. I keep a copy of the plaque in my studio as well. Anyway, here it is....enjoy and try to hold back the tears
Some of you may be too young to remember the hit 1975 TV series "Welcome Back Kotter".
This is the show that launched the careers of John Travolta, who played the impossibly cute class clown Vinnie Barbarino, and Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs, who played sexy hs basketball star Freddie 'Boom Boom' Washington.
Of course none of these actors were young enough to be high school students. But nobody cared. The show was good, clean, wholesome fun.
Hilton-Jacobs, Robert Hegyes (Juan Epstein) and Ron Palillo (Arnold Horshack) attended the Chiller Theatre Expo at the Hilton Parsippany Hotel on Friday, October 24, 2008 in Parsippany, New Jersey.
"If You Love Me" by Mint Condition is one of my favorite slow jams. Joyce Littel played this last night during the Quiet Storm. It took me way back. As Joyce would say, "ENJOY!"
Oh, by the way, the bald headed cutie is Toni Braxton's hubby, Keri Lewis.

Remember back in the day when females were respected in Hip Hop? Now if a female wants to make a name for herself in Hip Hop she has to get implants and inject botox in her azz. Sad.
Shout out to Zedi at Dimewars.com for the link!
Her name is Darlene Ortiz. But 20 years ago, she was known simply as "Darlene".
All Darlene ever did to earn her spot in the annals of Hip Hop history was pose half naked for the cover of her husband's 2nd studio album.
Darlene's image on the cover of Ice T's 1987 album "Power" propelled sales of the album through the roof. Her curves earned her praise from men and women alike.
Twenty years later, Darlene reenacted her infamous album pose for KING magazine. From the photos, we see that Darlene, now in her 40s, still has it. Video models today with their super sized man-made parts look like cartoon caricatures in comparison to Darlene from back in the day. She was perfect.
There's not a video model out today who can measure up to the Darlene of 1987 -- and she wasn't even black!
About two weeks ago, I was driving down Peachtree street heading to the Apple store at Lenox Square Mall, when this song came over my car speakers.
The lyricist's rhymes captured my imagination like no other rap song I've heard in a long time. My XM satellite radio was tuned to "The Rhyme". I glanced down at the display to see the name of the artist and title of the song.
The title of the track was "Secret Wars" by The Last Emperor. The song is a brilliant narration of a battle to the death between Marvel comic book Heroes taking on the nicest emcees in the business (Jay Z is not included, by the way).
The Last Emperor - Do You Remember
"Do You Remember" is the only rap song that brought tears to my eyes.
Old school rapper MC Lyte's fresh hairdo elicited a side-eye glance from a young lady at Ne-Yo's Circue de Soleil birthday party this past weekend. These young kids today don't know a thing about hawt hairstyles that don't require glue and string to hold them together.
