Young Deuces featuring Michael Christmas and Burgie Streetz - "Hold It Down"
"Hold It Down" grabbed my attention because of the inclusion of Boston's Michael Christmas, but it might have made me discover one of my new favorite rappers: Milwaukee's Young Deuces. "Hold It Down" has such an early 90's positive hip hop feel to it. It reminds me of Skee-Lo's "I Wish" or the more mainstream side of A Tribe Called Quest. It's a bouncy, smooth hip hop jam that actually celebrates the strong black women of the world, which is a welcome change from most of the hip hop I grew up with.
