Last night I had a bout of insomnia. I was up until 2am for no apparent reason at all. So I stayed up watching videos on VH-1 Soul, and lo and behold the video that came on:
Group Home’s “Supa Star”? I totally forgot about this song. I didn’t know it had a video, either. But then again, when I first heard the track, we didn’t have cable and I was recording songs off the radio onto cassette tapes. Maybe I’m the one late.
I’m excited to share this video with you, it’s a dope song. Rhymes are ill, the style is slick. The track is produced by DJ Premier, if you listen closely you can tell. This is when hip hop still had a hardcore, yet jazzy feel. I know I sound like an old fogey, but hey, it’s not my fault most of the shit out these days is weak.
