#tbt #ThrowbackThursday time with "It Was A Good Day (Remix) by Ice Cube.
"It Was A Good Day" was released in 1993 and was number 1 on the R&B/Hip Hop Charts and made it as high as number 15 on the Billboard Pop Charts.
This remix of the song samples The Staple Singers "Let's Do It Again!"....-DocFB
Diagnosis: The Lakers beat the Supersonics.....When will we hear that again Seattle...?
Will.I.Am & Britney Spears have released "Scream & Shout" Remix featuring Hit Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne & Diddy. Some are claiming that it is not actually Britney at all on the track.
It is not like Britney is singing exactly. I think it is a testament to Will's production that people don't think it is Britney on the song.
Rappers still rapping "Yolo" and the production value of the video is not really up to Will's usual level. Aside from Diddy saying "bitch" like he just created it, he makes sure you see his Ciroc in the video. Lil Wayne says he has a bad memory so we have a feeling he already forgot appearing in this video.
Will.I.Am has got his street cred back by appearing with these rappers. Now, let's just keep Will to doing his own stuff and focusing on the beats and the party atmosphere that upsets people over 35 and keeps the people under 25 happy.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Britney is cool but acting like Fergie makes me miss Fergie.
FREE Download! “We’re All In This Together” Feat. Lalah Hathaway, Shelby J., Anthony Hamilton, Take 6, & Crazy NED
Here is "We're All In This Together" remix by Lalah Hathaway, Shelby J., Anthony Hamilton, Take 6, & Crazy NED.
NPG member Shelby J. was asked to be on the remix by Miss Hathaway herself. Lalah opened for Prince & The NPG on some "Welcome 2 America" dates last year.
We talked to Shelby J. about the song and she said "The song has a healing power. I can listen to it over and over and it just makes me FEEL GOOD and it reminds me what is IMPORTANT in life and how we are ALL connected on the Earth, therefor we must CARE for each other & Love one another. No matter what color, race, religion or location!!"
"We must stomp out hate, and teach our children to LOVE their fellow man...It is the only way we will have a better future. Because....We're All In This 2gether!!! Ya Dig???"
It is no coincidence that you see some of the stars of the video and others wearing hoodies. This is a big shout out to Treyvon Martin.
There is a huge message in this song and that is why the song is available as a FREE download.
Shelby explains "Good music with a good message is like water...we all need it. You could drill a hole in a boat if you want...but we will ALL sink!"
The video is powerful and directed by Shelby's friend and musical collaborator Butter and co-directed by Trevor Gale.
Shelby J. is currently rocking Australia with PRINCE & The NPG on the Welcome 2 Australia tour and receiving rave reviews. There is MUCH more coming from Shelby J. in 2012 and we are excited about it all. Shelby J. is the truth and and her voice and spirit need to be heard by millions! She is the real deal inside and out.
We are loving the Lalah Hathaway jam with Shelby J., Anthony Hamilton, Take 6, and Crazy NED. We hope you dig it too!
Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" featuring Kimbra has inspired several cover versions and remixes. The Pentatonix version could be called a cover and remix and to some people, it is better than the original.
The way that people were covering "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele may not know that the song is actually Bob Dylan's and not Adele's. The song was covered successfully by Garth Brooks and others before everyone and their mom covered it since Adele did.
Gotye's song is everywhere. We will be surprised if it is not the most played song at the end of the year.
We are digging Pentatonix's version of it, but the question is, is it better than the original?-DocFB
Diagnosis: All Around The World The Same Song.....

Here is a mash-up of DJ Rob Base & Prince entitled "It Takes Two 2 Kiss" and it is funky. This is our old school jam of the moment.
This mix is made by DJ John and I have been digging it for a while.
We have been wanting to put stuff like this on our Facebook Fan Page, but Facebook's music player has not been working for over a week.
Since we can't and we wanted to share, and we do not know when the player will be fixed, we decided to share it here.
I miss the days of 12 inch versions n mixes big time.
It is a pretty cool mix and we hope you dig it. Check it out below.
What do you think?-DocFB
