Raekwon recently compiled the tracks from his recent Throwback Thursday series into a nice little mixtape called “We Wanna Thank You“. It’s nothing revolutionary really but still a nice listen, it’s pretty much 20 songs that will remind you of “Holla” by Ghostface except not quite as good. Still, it’s nice to hear how true to himself Raekwon has stayed after over 20 years of rapping, and, as you’ll discover, you might just learn a little important rap history too.
Raekwon – Ooh La La La
The original is basically intact in the Raekwon version, but just for completeness sake, here’s a sweet Soul Train lip-sync performance in its entirety.
Teena Marie – Ooh La La
If you’ve followed my blog for a while (or even if you haven’t) then you probably know where I’m going with this. I’ve posted this song here twice already, and it’s a little embarrassing that I’m just now learning this missing link.
The Fugees – Fu-Gee-La
Better late than never. Hopefully I didn’t bore you all with this one, maybe there’s at least one reader out there that hasn’t already connected these dots. If not, then my apologies, I promise the next one will be better.
