Yet again, I’ve creeped over to my friend’s site and snatched up one of her good O.S.A.Ms (Old School Atlanta Memories). This week it’s the Youngbloodz. Remember them? You never really miss something until it’s gone and I realize I really miss these two together. The duo behind today’s “A” Pod classic jams “Damn” and “U-Way” have gone their separate ways, but are still quite active in the industry.? And in honor of Flashback Friday, take a moment to reflect with my friend as she shares what she learned while working on the set with Youngbloodz and the attic crew:
It may not be headlines like when Jay Z split with Irv or Snoop with Dre but one of my favorite groups in Atlanta has always been the Youngbloodz and to know that they are not a duo anymore puts me in a melancholy state of mind. Now the fan in me is MAD AS HELL, I love their swag as a rap group, I knew they were having their difficulties but damn if Dre and Big Boi can do it then why not the Youngbloodz. The picture taken above was from one of their last videos Chop Chop, I was the assistant director and it was a long cold day but somehow, I just didn?t mind because I love these guys.
Finally one day I decieded to stop being selfish for one minute and was able to realize the SECRET TO THIS?ENTRY, ITS VERY SIMPLE ? FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON.
Now I?m gonna take you back to a night?I can recall at Club 112 a few years back; it was an album release party for Ludacris, and all of Atlanta?s royalty came out to support. The VIP was an Atlien who?s who list. I was sitting down near Michael Vick and my friends were asking me if was I going to follow them back to his house.
