Rare Gems

Rare Gem: Musiq Soulchild – Don’t Change (featuring Ron Isley) (Remix)

Many may not even realize it for whatever reason, but Musiq Soulchild is easily one of the most successful artists of his generation. Think about it. Since 2000, how many r&b artists have had as many hits? He’s definitely up…

Rare Gem: Anthony Hamilton – Nobody Else (Holdin it Down Version)

Although he’s now considered one of the brightest stars in r&b music, Anthony Hamilton certainly came from humble beginnings in the music industry. He signed with record label MCA in the mid 90’s, but his debut album “XTC” failed to…

Rare Gem: Montell Jordan – Falling (Teddy Riley Remix) (featuring Shaunta)

It’s interesting, but depending on who you talk to, they might call Montell Jordan a one hit wonder. It’s true, we’ve heard this from some uniformed music fans. Perhaps because his debut single “This is How We Do It” would…

Rare Gem: Case – More to Love (Teddy Riley Remix)

Case will forever be linked with Mary J. Blige in r&b history due to the breakout success of his original single “Touch Me, Tease Me” which featured her as well as Foxy Brown. Not only that, but Mary J. Blige…

Rare Gem: The Gablz – Shookie Shookie (Gimme Some Of Your Sweet Cookie) (Video)

An eight album deal, imagine that in this day and age? That’s exactly what r&b group The Gablz signed with Warner Bros. Records back in 1994 by famed industry exec Benny Medina. Had things gone as planned, the group might…

Rare Gem: Jamie Foxx – Experiment (Tricky & Sep’s G-Ride Remix)

When Jamie Foxx was still establishing himself as an actor in the early 90’s, many don’t realize that he also released his musical debut in that time period as well. The debut album “Peep This” came out in 1994, but…

Rare Gem: Horace Brown – Why Why Why (Remix)

It’s easy to assume that if you haven’t heard an artist releasing music in years, they’ve moved on from the industry. Out of sight, out of mind. Horace Brown is certainly an artist you can place in that category. He…

Rare Gem: Carl Thomas – Make it Alright (Remix) (featuring Ness) (Produced by Stevie J.)

If it’s one thing Puff Daddy helped bring into the mainstream during his rise in the 90’s, it was the art of the remix. Not only that, but the art of sampling obscure and hit records alike from the past…

Rare Gem: Intro – Funny How Time Flies (Slow Mix)

When you look around the r&b scene today, there are very few r&b groups. The reason for this occurrence is debatable and there certainly is a void that’s been left. This is in stark contrast to the 90’s when male…

Rare Gem: Jodeci – Forever My Lady (Dalvin Bass Remix)

When discussing the top r&b groups of the 90’s, and probably of all time, there is little disputing that Jodeci appears among the top. Not only did they have countless hits and three straight platinum albums, but they managed to…
