In the second MFBTY installment of Hyundai Music Library, the group are asked to talk about songs that had meaningful lyrics. They really took us back through time as they talk about the storytelling of Slick Rick, Warren G and the meaning of 213 (Westcoast hip-hop), and then the rarity of Mos Def’s “Ms. Fat Booty.”
Newer generations will have to wait until later in the episode to recognize a song, when Bizzy talks about the rarity of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “N*ggas in Paris.”
Regardless if you grew up listening to these classics just like MFBTY, clearly the group is well-versed in hip-hop’s history, taking it way back to its 70s-80s origins.
