“Bust A Move” by Young MC

Somewhere in the inner recesses of my brain, there still exists a 10-year old version of myself, running freely among all the neurons and synapses, reading and drawing comics, playing Nintendo games, studying about sharks, and probably wondering why I haven’t gotten a group of kids together to play a mean game of wall-ball.  He’s always there, even when I pay him no attention, palling around with the surlier teenage version of me and waiting to react at the slightest notion of nostalgia.

“Gimme Some More” by Busta Rhymes

Combining a breathless and seemingly endless flowing stream of words, a jerky, bassy beat, a gorgeous looped sample of violins lifted from Bernard Herrmann’s score to Psycho, and a music video that’s equal parts absurd and terrifying, Busta Rhymes’ late-90’s hip-hop opus “Gimme Some More” pretty much encapsulates everything that a popular rap song could be at that particular moment in time. It was innovative. It was aggressive. It was weird. It made me want to be a rapper.
