"certified classics that have been abandoned by hip hop...."


          

and co-opted by white folks. This shit truly baffles me.

I fail to understand how certain songs that were certified hip hop bangers when the dropped are now reduced to local sports bar fodder years later, with little to no reverance by the community that embraced the songs initially.

Two songs come to mind (and Im sure thers more):
Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock- It Takes Two
House of Pain-Jump Around

Its hard to imagine now, but both of these joints were like the Flex bomb streetsweepers of their day. "It Takes Two" was the Yo MTV Raps theme song for god sakes.

And "Jump Around"...This was the shit niggas would bump from they Pathfinders and Suzuki Samurais real slow-like down the blvd. Pete Rock laced the white boys with the remix treatment essentially cementing their status back then as a credible hip hop act.

So why dont we hear these songs in any of the throwback sets in the hip hop clubs? Or in any old-school mixes on the urban radio stations.

At what point does hip hop decide that a once revered classic can be drafted and claimed by frat boys to call their own.

I mean, I get the whole concept of white folks running certain trends that we invented into the ground to the point where we throw our hands up and say..."Ya'll can have it"....(See "Bling Bling").


All Im saying is..I still love these songs. And it'd be nice to hear em alongside a Biggie or Eric B & Rakim classic in the hiphop club where they belong. Instead of in the white clubs alongside AC/DC and Eurythmics.

What other classics have fallen into this black hole never to return to the hip hop side of things?

Don't care if it was a classic or not, Young MC's songs was corny and terrible; which is why nobody cares if other races took it as their own personal jam.

when I was in college I DJd this white girl's party and since I didn't bring any of the pop shit they wanted I had to play Rosa Parks 7 times in one night.
'Kast actually avoided that one by having bigger hits on their next albums...Miss Jackson helped take some of the heat off Rosa and then Hey Ya and I Like the Way You Move got played out enough to where I can actually play Rosa Parks again...and I am thankful for that

and MAYBE Jump Around, but if someone plays it, folks get in line to enjoy quickly....

everything else still gets love in "old school" mixes and whatnot....

you can throw Young MC's brother tone Loc in there too, but whitefolks put Wild Thing on LOCK soon as it came out

...oh and Hammer too...people front like they didn't enjoy "You Can't touch This", "Turn This Mutha Out" and "They Put Me In the Mix...i'm not saying EVERYBODY loved MC Hammer, but he did have a few jams....
