“Jerome! Jerome! Put on that Bobby Womack!”
Everytime I hear that line, I know whats coming next. That smooth beat intro followed by one of the most sing-along and relateable verses in MY hip hop history:
Back in the day when I was young Im not a kid anymore/but some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
Sampling Teddy Pendergrass’s “Love TKO”, Ahmad made a song that brings us all back. At the ripe age of 18, he reminisces in such vivid detail the characteristics of a childhood, his childhood and one of so many others (with no swearing nonetheless). Nike suits, pumas, tootsie pops and footsie socks!
and everybody say….I remember way back when!
