“No Diggity…No Doubt, UGH” – Blackstreet
So, I’ll be straight with you, this playlist is awesome. If you disagree, you clearly did not spend your youth as I did downloading Ja Rule music videos on KaZaa and ripping out every single poster from TigerBeat.
I remember discovering TLC’s “Crazy, Sexy, Cool” album in my sister’s room, sticking it in my purple disc-man, and suddenly having the epiphany that I was A TOTAL F($*#ING BADASS. I showed up at school the next day in baggy pants, hoop earrings, and bandana that I had fashioned into a headband (I think there may have been glitter on it). From then on, my favorite after-school activity was begging my mother to take me to Sam Goody, where I would purchase my $25 CD just to listen to the one song I knew (on repeat.)
