Forgotten Freshness: Lil Jon-Shawty Freak a Lil Somethin

Some old school circa 95 era shit. Look at Ludacris at :11 seconds into the video, back when he was known as DJ Chris Lova Lova. Also making a cameo is Jazze Pha. This is Lil Jon back when he was deeply influenced by the Miami booty music scene. Shouts out to the forefathers of that movement 2 Live Crew, Poison Clan, 95 South, Quad City DJs, and 69 Boys. I recount those dayz with great nostalgia. R.I.P. DJ Uncle Al

2 Live Crew- Pop That P**Sy

Poison Clan-Fire Up This Funk

95 South-Rodeo

DJ Uncle Al (R.I.P.)-Slip N Slide

69 Boyz-Tootsie Roll

Splack Pack-Let Me C Ya Work It

You people don't have to like this shit, but you do need to respect it. All of the above cats made tremendous contributions to the art form that is Hip-Hop. Plus these were the original forerunners to the crunk movement. Crunk is an offshoot of booty music. You can't know where you are going unless you know where you're coming from.
Enzow on the Post that'll make u grab ur toast!

Sorry, but you're almost a decade off by calling Lil Jon, 95 South and 69 Boyz pioneers of Bass music. Bass was almost "dead" by the time that they showed up.
