Hip-Hop has many different unique stories that have been told and passed down from times past and present. Some of the great and most remembered stories and chronicles come to mind:
1. Snoop Dogg - Jin and Juice
2. Geto Boys - Mind Playin Trick On Me
3. Eazy E - Eazy Street
4. Will Smith - Fresh Prince of Bel Air
5. Lil Wayne - The Art Of Storytellin
6. The Notorious B.I.G. - I Got A Story To Tell
7. Ice Cube- Friday
8. Sir Mix A Lot - Posse On Broadway
9. Dr. Dre - Lil Ghetto Boy
10. Jay - Z - My First Song
Not only are these some of the most famed and sought after Hip-Hop stories, these are the ones that the Hip-Hop community can relate to on a day to day basis and on a fabled saga adventure of sorts the kind that can be brought down into the history books as the times of life. Much more can be said about the connection to the songs and verses that Hip-Hoppers hear and pay attention to, one thing for sure is that these times will live on forever on wax and in our hearts and memories. Some Hip-Hoppers will play these songs while re-living one's own ideal of what the perfect, or imperfect, story might be. Enough has been said for the relative drawing of this Hip-Hop lotto meaning that what captures the imagination of Hip-Hop all over again is more than words can bare to tell, sometimes the pure mentioning's of the senses can remind us of what we love from Hip-Hop and the precious memories that ensue momentarily. Who doesn't smell the delicious Dicks Hamburgers when the mentioning of the Restaurant is brought up in Sir Mix a Lot's My Posse's on Broadway?
Chronicling one's own life through the art of storytelling (no pun intended), and barraging listeners with intended timelines of who, what, and where’s brings back the funk (still no pun intended) of Hip-Hop as an essential tool in the toolbox of Hip-Hop. Seattle Hip-Hop loves Sir-Mix-A-Lot's great story rhyme: My Posse's On Broadway!
