Off what many SHOULD consider one of the great debut Hip Hop albums off all time, Uptown Saturday Night. I remember seeing them on tour right after the album dropped at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO. I took a god friend of mine who would rather play Jodeci or Boy II Men in his whip than anything rap. But, I had an extra ticket and nobody else was around so he went. He ended up buying the album that night and it didn’t leave the CD player in his car for at least 2 month. Definitely one of the best performances I’ve had the pleasure of seeing and I’ve seen a lot.
