Soul Train and old D’Angelo clips already had us in a throwback mood here in the okayplayer HQ–and this throwback post from LargeUp just took me straight back to early 90s college radio. Q-Tip reps his Montserratian roots heavy in this dancehall team-up with Tiger, which includes several key 90s hallmarks (Cross-Colours and Rodney King references, just to name two) but the best thing about it may be Pat “Miss Pat” McKay and Tom Westwood introducing the clip on this Ghetto Muzik broadcast. Some discussion questions for our younger readers:
1) Who was Rodney King?
2) What is Cross-Colours?
3) Why are they holding torches?
