BlackRadioIsBack.com Flashback Video of the Day: Lost Boyz feat.The Dogg Pound & Canibus - Music Makes Me High RMX
I have great memories of listening to the Lost Boyz in that mid-to-late 1990s period of going from High School to my attendance at the B.W.I. (Big White Institution) of Rutgers University as an undergraduate student.
You could not go damned near anywhere and not hear a track either on a station like Hot 97 or a mixtape from the Legal Drug Money album (which I still have on cassette buried somewhere at the homestead and holds up very well almost 12 years later). Their second album, Love, Peace & Nappiness, is a dope solid album from the crew as well.
The South Jamaica, Queens NY crew of Mr. Cheeks, Freaky Tah (R.I.P. due to a senseless shooting in 1999), DJ Spigg Nice, and Pretty Lou definitely had a great energy as performers in both a live setting and on the studio tracks, showing multiple sides of the streets - the good, the bad and the ugly (a cliche, but very true) with some on point production.
I have this remix of the video we're highlighting here on BlackRadioIsBack.com on a 12" (which to this day that collabo still looks a bit random - The Dogg Pound and Canibus - huh?!) and until the wonders of YouTube (or my memory just being shot - probably a mix of both) did not remember there being a video for this joint.
So for y'all pleasure, here are the Lost Boyz in classic 1990s NYC Street Hip-Hop style on this video:
