Hip Hop Sound
Do you guys remember Kid ‘N’ Play? Or better yet, do you remember the movie “House Party?” I don’t like many hip hop movies, but this sh*t was funny as hell! This is the kind of hip hop I like, which by today’s standards it would be considered “bubble gum music.” Anyway, I highly recommend that you put this on your Netflix queue. The movie has a lot of old stars in it, such as Tisha Campbell, Paul Anthony, Clifton Powell, and of course, Martin Lawrence. Just to give you fair warning to those of you who have kids, it’s rated R. The move’s comedy is along the same lines as “Friday” starring Ice Cube, and Chris Tucker (which was also very funny). Actually, to be honest, “House Party” was a little more raunchy.
However, having just said that, I do think that it represented exactly what the young rap culture was all about in the 90s. Well, one of the raps from the soundtrack I remember very well, was “Kid Vs. Play.” Back in the day, or I should say, in the 90s, hip hop themed movies tend to have rap with a lot of funk (James Brown type) samples, and in my opinion, this was one of the best types of rap (next to hip house). I can’t find a whole lot of information as to what they’re doing now. As far as I can tell, Kid is just doing bad awful. Got in to car accidents and all kind of crazy stuff. However, although Play hasn’t done anything really huge after “House Party,” he has gotten some TV acting gigs here and there.
