blackstreet - no diggity

Strictly biz, she don't play around
Cover much ground, got game by the pound
Getting paid is a forte
Each and every day, true player way

I am totally reliving 1996 with my posts today, because here comes another stunna from that year. This is a light bulb video for me. I didn't know anything about rap music but I remember thinking that this sounded really tight. It was before I really understood how sampling worked. Someone knew what they were doing with this Bill Withers right here. I also thought anything with Dr. Dre at this time was like having Willie Mitchell producing (RIP). TRUST HIM, HE'S A DOCTOR. This video exists simply to remind me of trying to awkwardly dance in a circle of girls with chunky square heels and stuffed bras at a Lamar Middle School dance while all the boys stood in the corner.

Also, I've always believed this to star Lil' Penny. Is that in fact the baller himself or were they just trying to capitalize on the Lil' Penny fame of that season? A big year for that baller. There's also a grandpa Lil' Penny version in this video. Bigger question: WHY ARE THERE PUPPETS IN THE VIDEO? How hardcore can you really be, Blackstreet slash I'm into it completely.

I want this on my tombstone someday:

Attracting honeys like a magnet
Giving em eargasms with my mellow accent
