#TheStoop: “It Was All A (Club) Dream…”

#TheStoop: “It Was All A (Club) Dream”…

Today on #TheStoop: A Mini-Podcast Series, in the spirit of Flashback Friday, we take you back to the 2003-2004 era when Chocolate City* had one of the biggest clubs for the culture. I invite Andrew Mambo (ESPN’s 30 For 30 Podcast), and Headley (past contributor to South Shore Ave), as we take you back down memory lane and discuss “Club Dream”, one of the greatest entertainment night clubs in the DC-Maryland-Virginia (aka The “DMV”), as well as being the biggest club on the East Coast. We break down the atmosphere, the vibe, and share stories from our experience(s) of the legendary nightclub. If you missed out… that’s okay. We accept your apology.

* “Chocolate City” is the nickname for Washington, D.C., and if you’re only now learning this, I’m glad that I was able to help you understand what that term meant. And also…… really?

#TheStoop: The 20th Anniversary of Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life

Today on #TheStoop: A Mini-Podcast series, we take you back to the musical Golden Era of 90’s music, and celebrate one of the Greatest albums of the decade. Twenty years ago tomorrow (September 29, 1998), Jay-Z released his 3rd studio album, “Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life”. The album & the single (of the same name) exploded across the Hip Hop industry, and sent Jay-Z into pole position as the best rapper of the game. It sold over 5 million albums, & became the foundational piece that set up the Rocafella Records era into the new millenium.

I invite Shawn Adonis (Past contributor to South Shore Ave) as we discuss the Top 5 songs from the album, where this album ranks among the other albums in the Jay-Z catalogue, the impact the album had on Rocafella records, and much more.

The Ave Podcast – Get Rich or Die Tryin’ #15Years

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 38: Get Rich of Die Tryin’ #15Years

We here at South Shore Ave decided to gas up the DeLorean & taking you back to the first week of February 2003 (Feb 6th to be precise). Shady/Aftermath launched 50 Cent’s debut album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, one of biggest selling Hip Hop albums of all time, selling over 12 million units. Riding the wave of his mixtape popularity, 50 Cent leveraged his fame from the streets in 2002, creating one of the biggest buzzes in Hip Hop history. It forced Eminem & Dr. Dre to put their record companies together in a joint venture to sign 50, and helped to make him one of the biggest artists in music, changing the game in the process with his debut album.

Today on The Ave Podcast, I invite past contributor to South Shore Ave Shawn Adonis (The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die, Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt, as we discuss the career of 50 Cent pre-Get Rich, break down the album’s impact on the Hip Hop industry, rank our Top 5 songs, and compare the album to the other classic Hip Hop albums of this current century.
