Welcome to another Thursday as that mean we are closer to the weekend. My playlist started out with a pair of album from No Limit Records. The Rear End joint from Mercedes and Breather Life by Krazy. Mercedes is known more for the album cover and Krazy sound an awful like 2Pac. The new joint from the King Von and Disc 3 of the Bad Boy compilation set was also played. Until the End of Time by Pac, Chino XL’s Ricanstruction joint and J-Live All the Above made the list. Once again, many of these would be great to be the featured Throwback Thursday joint. The other album that was played was the debut album from Ashanti. It’s crazy to think five days ago was the 20th anniversary of the release of the album.
Before her album came out, she was known for singing hooks on Ja Rule and Fat Joe joints. She also done the hook on Big Pun’s How We Roll from his posthumous Endangered Species joint. Ashanti was an instant success seeing the album sold over 6 million copies worldwide. She was anointed as the new Princess of R&B in the process. Ashanti released three singles off the album and her first one is the featured Throwback Thursday joint. Foolish was the name and it went double platinum in the process also. Overall, the album was amazing and Foolish is definitely one of my favorite cuts. Happy, Baby, Unfoolish and Leaving round out my top 5 with Foolish. Check out the video above the featured track Foolish. Below you can peep the track listing and stream links for the Ashanti album.
