had a shitty day,
turned on the radio...

and was blown away by the song.

couldn't believe what was coming out of the speakers.



i especially loved that rhythm track
that sounds like one note being plucked on electic guitar over and over and over again.

it pulsates the entire track forward.




a few days later, i was hearing it EVERYWHERE.


i'm still not tired of that song.

Just one of those songs that was played ALL the fucking time, still is, by a guy I barely like anymore, that just can't possibly be overplayed. Kinda like Through the Wire.

before it found its way to the radio
I think it was the leak even
was at a houseparty,
we played it then & there,
and several times more that evening
and knew it would become a huge hit for snoop

First heard "the Show" on a late night am radio show in 8th grade - it started a 3 month search to find the 12 inch

First heard Mary's "Real Love" during sexytime with this girl (the video came on BET which just happened to be on the TV)...she got mad because I got distracted and started watching the video mid-stroke. twas funny (and still is)

I gotta million of these song-as-life-snapshot moments

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i had caught the video on MTV2 (back when they actually played random blocks of music) and I had heard 'Wanksta' and thought it was okay and knew that 50 was getting alot of hype because of his album, but I hadn't heard it myself.

anyway, the video starts and that 'ba-bam' and then 'Go Shorty' and I was stuck. The mixing on those drum / synth hits killed it. I could tell it was Dre from the beginning and I was like 'Dre did it again'. i guess you could say this was his last big gamechanger.

i also remember seeing the video for 'Smells like Teen Spirit'. I was at home right after school and I think I was gonna watch Rap City but I turned on MTV instead, just to see what was on.

I caught the video 'right' when it was starting, so I caught that bare melody from Kurt's guitar and I was transfixed for the next 4 minutes. I know it seems like its a stretch for a 7th grader to say that music was different, but that song sounded nothing like any music I had heard up until that point in my life. it was *that* different sounding.

The rumor around the time Get Rich...dropped was that the Dre beats from that album were "throwaways" from Detox. Fuck. Woulda been the perfect time to drop that shit, like 2004-2005. I mean if In Da Club and If I Can't were "throwaways," I shudder to think of what else Dre created during that time that now sits in a fucking vault. Travesty.

In response to Reply # 13


  

          

it would have been another classic for Dre. It would have dropped right when people would have been ready for an album and he still would have had enough of a connection (and a creative spirit as well) to the mainstream that he could have pulled off 'the last classic hip-hop album'.

by now, things have changed so much in the mainstream being that there's a new generation of MC's and the stylistic sound of the music is different that I don't think even if Dre was on top of his creative abilities that he would have the insight into this current generation to make something like the OG Chronic or 2001.

turned on TRL while I got rid of the food in my hands so I could focus on the sticks

don't remember my reaction to the song except I didn't really have any idea how popular it was about to be among my age group

when the Massacre dropped in high school, 50 was popular enough and filesharing still foreign enough that I was able to charge $3 for CD-R copies of the advance

That's one song that DID get overplayed to the point that I can't listen to it anymore. Shame, really. That beat is pretty dope and the song in general is really good. No surprise it got the play it did but I wish it hadn't, I was playin that shit hard when I first heard it, before it blew.

Me and my ex was in St. Louis and every ten minutes they played it on the radio stations there. We really paid it no mind and when we got back to Memphis we were singing a lot and wasn't surprised it wasn't more well known. Next thing you know about four months later it hit the nation and we were like "damn, the nation is JUST now hearing this song!" lol

that beat is hypnotic and while 50 doesn't really spit on the song, the chorus, especially the radio version, is golden.

I was interested considering the mass shit talk he had done mocking Murder Inc and the mixtapes...

and then to hear that song I had the Benson face.

when I saw the response of folks here? I was like, "this is some bullshit."

last time I felt like that was when "Mr. Ice Cream Man" hit.

edit: I should post that one up... that was hilarious.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

outside on the backporch @ my grandmother's house in Charlotte.
the radio was on.

I was like, "is that Bobby Brown?!"

I found it funny as crap that he was singing a song with a word like "prerogative" in the title.

oh, but then I heard that song about 5 times on the way back home somehow seeking through radio channels.

I think I remember hearing "Groove Me" for the first time in Charlotte too.

those were fun times.

My daughter was in the back. Traffic jam.

Wasn't sold on 50 yet...but the track was undeniable. All Dre all day. Same sonics as Mary J Blige 'Percolate'...and same approach in the string arrangement. But slower tempo...a little more bluesy. Those two songs sound like they both started in the same session.

The dj was messing with it first time I heard it...so I wasn't sure if it was a legit single. But the beat's got that Dre stomp swing. Almost sounds like a heavy metal groove.
