    There was this store in Little Five Points that sold custom-embroidered skullies--just a word or, at most, two across the front--and I remember my friend Katie's little brother Josh rocking a purple one that said the word "P**NIS" on it to coordinate with his purple Pumas.

    That may have crossed the line from hip-hop fashion into some sort of other fashion.

    Yo-Yo - You better ask somebody.

    I really thought the production on this album was great(QD3 and Baker Boyz)
    It's quality still holds up for me.

    i had this Cypress hill tshirt with their first logo on the front (red one, cartoon style) and "the phunky cypress hill shit" on the back.

    both prints were fucking huge, as was the shirt.

    i thought i was the bees knees.

    anyway, headed into the city one night and this big Tongan dude decides he liked my shirt, so he steps to me and smacks me in the head, then trys to pull my shirt off Happy Gilmore style over my head, im bleeding all over the place, cant see shit and just start swinging, ended up connecting and then kicking him in the sack, then running away... weeks later, dude rocks into the record store im working in (wearing the shirt- told you i thought i was cool) and asks me if he can order the shirt!?!

    we ended up hanging out and swapping cds for weed.

    93 was sweet.

    Of course all of this play occured in my bedroom or in cassette deck in the car.
    Even though i first heard "Reign of the Tec" on the FM station here before i became aware of them (beatnuts).

    The longterm effects of the weed is starting to show.

    Yeah, but even though it was only two years later, it's really from a whole other era.

  • I was the first kid at my school to have Cross Colours. I thought I was the shit. I got mad "close" slow dances that year.

    I also had a philly blunt shirt. Which is funny because I didn't try weed until a good 5+ years later.

    and yo

    I was cranking: Doggystyle, Midnight Marauders, Baccdafuccup, 19 Naughty Three, Snow - "Informer," Da Brat - "Funkdafied," Nirvana - In Utero, Green Jelly, Primus - Pork Soda.

    I too was in elementary school at the time, cut me a little slack. Usually these were in the context of borrowing/stealing friend's older brothers tapes, as i mostly had cassingles and mixtapes i had dubbed off the radio.

    It's funny that deej mentions being "scared" by Wu-Tang. While I wouldn't go that far, I distinctly remember clowning that tape mercilessly for some reason. It wasn't until I heard their solo material that I went back and reevaluated it.

    You must have been a very sophisticated little dude--I wasn't "reevaluating" much of anything at 13.

    Well I probably wasn't using that word at the time, but you know what I'm saying.

    add to alot of what was already said:

    Compton's Most Wanted - Music To Driveby (yeh 92, but the album knocked)
    Ice Cube - Lethal Injection (disappointed, but I pretty much bought anything Ice Cube up to that album)
    Detroits Most Wanted - Tricks of the Trade (local experience)
    MC Breed - The New Breed mainly because of the collab with 2Pac
    2Pac - Strictly


    Was the Street Fighter soundtrack out then? or later? That was a "dope" soundtrack.
