“People in Oakland…Oakland
Woo, see I’m ridin higher and higher, woo-oo
Kinda broke so ya know all I gots five, I got five…”
“I Got 5 On It” by the Luniz, which samples Club Noveau‘s “Why You Treat Me So Bad”, is one of the best hip-hop songs ever. EVER.
I know. You already know that.
I just had to share my thoughts because earlier today I was roamin’ through the grocery store and heard some knuckleheaded kid tellin’ his boys that this song “jacked Diddy’s beat yo”.
Needless to say, I thought about how sad our future is in the hands of lil’ idiots like this as debated beating the crap out of the lil’ ignorant fools a**. For some reason, my good judgment got the better of me and I went about my business.
Of course, I spent the entire ride home feenin’ to hear the damn thing and suddenly found myself on a mission to jam out to the classic track.
Turn it up. Blaze one up, if that’s your thing. But most of all…enjoy.
