Rebirth of Slick

In 1993 this song burst on to the scene and taught us all that things were “Cool Like Dat.” Digable Planets snatched up a Grammy in 1994 for the song in the Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group category.  You know a song has legs and relevance when it finds its way into a national TV commercial for Tide is 2009.  Simply put “We be to rap what key be to lock.”

*In 1979 President Jimmy Carter decreed that June would be Black Music Month.  Three decades later in 2009 President Barack Obama revamped the title and declared June African-American Music Appreciation Month.  Each day this month I am turning up the volume on an artist or song brought to you by the letter R.  Enjoy!*
