Generic list post: 40 jams from 2003

Blogging rule #1097: when suffering from poster's block, fall back on a cheap crowd-pleasing list. The 2004 jams post got luh from Qatar to Quartersnacks and back again, so here's a 2003 equivalent. Will Lil-Bucket come through again and turn this one into a Spotify playlist? Let's guilt-trip him into it.

My blog, my choices, which means nothing from The Black Album, and a Juve' deep cut over Slow Motion. I only discovered Loon's This Ain't Funny a couple of months ago, but I've already become so besotted with the track that it'd be disingenuous if I didn't include it, so it's au revoir to Flip Flop Rock.

T.I. - Kingofdasouth
Freeway ft. Peedi Crakk - Flipside
Peedi Crakk ft. Freeway - Fall Back
David Banner - Cadillac On 22's

Stuntastic and ByrdGang's Sour Diesel = best Neptunes knock-offs ever.

Lost Art said...

Completely forgot about some of these, never heard some of the others.

Good work, sir.

DJ said...

Playlist please!

2003 was a bit of a blur for me rap-wise, but Still Tippin' is clearly song of the year. Sounds so fresh 11 years later.

Watching a few of these clips is just a reminder how much bigger the budgets were. Luda's Stand Up shoe could pay for an entire video in 2014.

Rappers say: "we ARE big, it's the video budgets that got small!"

Mob Figaz - Rain
The Federation - Hyphy
Dizzee Rascal - I Luv U

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Hyphy is in the list!

"Stand Up" is good, but my 2003 Luda jam would have to be "P-Poppin".
