Classic Vibe: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince "Summertime" (1991)

Although summer hasn’t official started yet, this will do since it feels like it has! To me, this will always be the official theme song for the start of the summer!

Editor Picks: Teedra Moses "Take Me" featuring Raphael Saadiq & "Caution"

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/714.mp3] [audio:http://www.ykigs.com/715.mp3] It was impossible to pick just one song from Teedra Moses’ debut album “Complex Simplicity,” so I had to choose two. I love pretty much the whole album front to back, so I wouldn’t say these are necessarily…

Classic Vibe: Michael Jackson "Remember the Time" (1992)

One of my favorite Michael Jackson songs, R.I.P. to one of the greatest to ever perform in music. He did music videos like nobody else could, or has done since, just amazing and timeless.
