Throwback Thursday: Noreaga - Superthug

Before Noreaga decided to go regGAYton, he got some help from a hungry Neptunes squad (this was '98) that gave him his biggest hit to date, at least in my opinion, which, as you all know, is the only opinion that matters. Press play and enjoy.

The beat on this track and that looped over "What What What What whaWHat" absolutely saves Nore from himself. The dude never could rhyme. He was Prodigy before Prodigy became 2008 Prodigy (see: refuses to actually rhyme). This track did wonders for the Neptunes squad as well. This was basically their first hit single and set the foundation for future knockers like "Grindin'" by the Clipse, shit, both of those albums (Lord Willin' and Hell Hath No Fury) had nothin but heat from Pharell, Chad, and the other guy LOL.

In case you havent noticed yet, i do these Throwback Thursday posts to school up you new jacks and give you a basis on which to form your hip hop opinions. Remember kiddies, just because you wear a Supreme T-shirt and the rarest Dunk lows with your North Face backpack synched up tight does not mean you automatically get your hip hop pass. Put in your time, pay your dues, listen to classics, then go and bite someone elses style and call it your own.
