What’s On Your Mind?

Song: “What’s On Your Mind?” Eric B & Rakim

Album: Don’t Sweat The Technique 1992

Label: MCA

I heard this song for the first time pretty late in the game. One thing I always found to be a huge turnoff are people who dub themselves “Rap Historians” and feel high and mighty because they can recall when  a song first came out. As though it makes their love for a particular genre of music much stronger than others. When Jay-Z’s “D.O.A.” was released several weeks ago, people were really going in on other artists who use auto tune, as well as new followers of Hip-Hop for not having been a fan of the art from its inception.

I didn’t understand the reason for that. People shouldn’t have to give a thesis on Hip-Hop and what it means to them just to prove their knowledge or dedication. If you hear a song and dig it, then there you go.

That being said, I don’t have a back story for this song, just wanted to share it and possibly introduce others to it as well. Here’s live video for “What’s On Your Mind” by Eric B & Rakim. Enjoy!
