’90s Music Makers We Miss

November 4, 2011 ‐ By nativenotes

"'90s music"

Do you remember Video Music Box with DJ Ralph McDaniels or Yo! MTV Raps back in the early ’90s? Remember when Donnie Simpson and Sherry Carter from BET would play all the hits on their Friday night countdown show, Video Soul? I can’t be the only one who reminisces about sitting in front of the TV jamming to music that I was really too young to understand.

If you were coming of age in the 90’s you were jamming to some good music, unlike today where the radio is filled with nonsense. Not too many of the hit makers from that time are still around today and for those who are, the music doesn’t always add up. Whatever happened to Changing Faces, Brownstone, Pebbles and CeCe Peniston? Take a trip down memory lane with me as I reminisce on some folks you probably forgot about.

    How exactly is Lauryn Hill in the looney bin again?  Nobody can distinguish between her being defiant and not caring about anyone’s thoughts AND her screaming on a bus, attacking random passengers.  Learn something, black people

    Please take Mint Condition out of the “What Ever Happened To” category. They are still doing it, and their latest CD, “7” is the business. I know you acknowledged they are still doing it, but I want to clarify they are still doing it BIG!!! 20 years later.

    And as an added note, Boyz II Men also has been doing it for 20 years, and still going strong!!!
