First off, I love the show. Especially season 1. Damn near perfect.
Rewatching season 2. Fubu....
GREAT episode as far as what it was trying to get across.
But the musical selections spanning an entire decade.....why?
They played Al B Sure - Night and Day(88) during the cafeteria scene. There was an Aquemini(98)poster on the wall at the beginning. They played Pharcyde- Passing Me By(92) in the hallway scene towards the end. They played Nas-If I Ruled the World(96) at the end of the episode. That’s 4 distinct eras in terms of musical sound, fashion, etc. right there. With a couple others mixed in separating them! Fubu was a thing from maybe 95/96 to 99? So the episode has to take place in that time period. It’s a detail, but damn. It’s an easy one to get right, isn’t it? You can’t just play music that covers a decade span. That’s something some dumb ass kid on some “hey, 90s! Hammer and DMX!” as if shit didn’t change drastically almost every year or two back then, would think.
