Kid Electric's Bad Boy Records Tribute Benefit for Notes For NotesHip-Hop
“Throw your Rolies in the sky / Wave ’em side to side” … Wait, does anybody even wear a watch anymore? The idea that people would wear watches, much less flaunt them, is so adorably Clintonian — and yet there is no greater embodiment of the era’s innocent excesses like Bad Boy Records. Bad Boy was the label that secured urban music’s place at the top of the pop food chain, launching not only Notorious B.I.G. — world’s greatest rapper, duh — but ensuring that we would not live in a world without Sean Combs. And they released The Lox’s “If You Think I’m Jiggy,” Black Rob’s “Whoa” and the all-time super-mega classic “Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)” by Craig Mack, which is cool enough to forgive a million seasons of Making The Band. It’s the perfect back catalog to have the city’s best urban performers — like Rio and The Radikalz — to tear into. An added incentive: It’s for a benefit for Notes For Notes, a program that provides kids with free access to musical instruments, instruction and music-making environments.
