Space Age Pimpin'

8Ball and MJG- "Space Age Pimpin'"

Contrary to popular belief, hip-hop's fascination with space came way before Kanye's Glow in the Dark stage show. This isn't the first one by far, but it was a formative piece of work for yours truly. Yes, I have always loved the smooth ish (I was probably the only one at my high school slappin' Anita Baker and SADE EVERYDAY), instrumentals more fit for the Bay's "Quiet Storm", KBLX, than hip-hop giant KMEL.

I still own this maxi-single (..."What's that", the 90's baby said) on CD. In fact, Honor Rollers Mike Baker the Bike Maker, Moxmore, and I used to freestyle over this during our infamous freestyle sessions. Yup, battle raps over sex music... You know how we do! LOL.

*I hope you clicked the links in this one...
