Tweet’s video for her first single “Oops (Oh My),” featuring Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott. Nothing wrong with a little self love. “Oh my…”

I don’t specifically remember the first time I ever saw this video. I do however remember wondering if famous people really had cigars that were super huge. Since then, this video has become a classic in my book, for its insane visuals, the over-the-top fisheye lenses, and Bussa Buss doing his thing in the classic fashion that made him famous.
Mobb Deep has always been a permanent fixture in the hip hop community, and when they put out ‘Amerikaz Nightmare’, they were already far along in pursuit of rap domination. The first single off the album was named “Got It Twisted” an instant classic when played in any East Coast club. Check the video below, and write me if you have any memories while listening to the song.
This one, just like my first throwback video (Missy Elliot – Get Your Freak On) isn’t that dated. It’s only about 8 years old, debuting in 2002, but just like ‘Get Your Freak On’, this song has some sentimental value. (I even slipped a short sample of the song into ‘Cocktails & Condoms’). ‘I Know What You Want’ from Busta Rhymes ft. Mariah Carey & The Flipmode Squad is my all time favorite song, and I’m pretty sure I’ve almost made some babies to this track. So when it came on just a minute ago while my iTunes was on shuffle, and I had to go and watch the video.
So this weekend, I was chatting with my assistant, and we were discussing a trip to London I took as a young lad. (I was about 14) I was telling her about this massive video arcade my cousin Alexi and I went to, there was the arcade’s signature escalator, and at the top was a GIANT screen with Missy Elliot’s “Get Your Freak On” playing. That was the first time I saw the video, and looking back at the video again, I realized that (at least to me) that video will forever be a classic.
