This week we are taking you back to the early 2000’s and delivering some of the best tracks, that came from that era!
- “Addictive” (2002) by Truth Hurts ft. Rakim: No matter how much time has passed, two things you could never forget were the hypnotic beat and belly dancers. “Addictive” was the first single released from Truth Hurts’ debut album “Truthfully Speaking” and it was a hit. Produced by DJ Quik, he sampled an instrumental track from a Hindi song named “Thoda Resham Lagta Hai” (1981) by Lata Mangeshkar. Unfortunately, since the label Aftermath didn’t clear rights to use Lata’s song, any sales of this song were ceased. However, anyone can still listen to the song on Youtube, Pandora, Soundcloud, and Pandora.
- “B.O.B” (2000) by Outkast: Bombs Over Baghdad (B.O.B.) is one of Atlanta’s finest. Outkast was never afraid to step out of the imaginary boundaries in Hip-Hop and taking those musical risks gave their music a unique style. B.O.B. is very unique in this genre of music, with a dash of heavy electric guitar that comes near the ending and a gospel choir as a flair. B.O.B. It was even featured in an upcoming Suicide Squad video game trailer released last year. B.O.B. is an electrified song that will get anyone out of their seats and dance.
- “E.I.” (2000) by Nelly: In 2000, Nelly already made a name for himself when he released his first single “Country Grammar” which soared the billboard charts and peaked in the top 10 in the States and the United Kingdom. “E.I.” was a second single from his debut album, along with “Country Grammar” and “Ride Wit Me” was a hit.
