#throwbackThursday ~ Method Man

When I first heard this song, I was in middle school. And I’m sure it was due to my sheltered upbringing, but I had no idea what they were talking about. What I knew is that all the girls in my grade wanted to be as fly as Mary J. Blige.

I remember watching a show on MTV– back when they did actual reporting on music– and some exec wanted Lauryn Hill to sing the hook on this song. But Lyor Cohen [president of Island Def Jam Music Group] was like “…nah.” I think Mary J.’s vocals are the best for this song anyways.
