    I would say this isn’t “old school”, except it’s from 1999 and you used Miss Jackson, so I’m gonna assume you’ll allow.

    Remember when ATCQ broke up and Q-Tip did a solo song and we had big hopes but it was all about wanting to feel “those big ass thighs”? So disappointing. But I totally would spin this song and dance to it in a heartbeat.

    You know how the kids be doing things. If it’s not new hotness it’s old school! I don’t understand it either, but I’m desperate to remain relevant in the world of hip hop.

    here’s another one that gets more old school love than its sound would indicate. it’s not Biggie’s best verse, by any means.

    Okay, so it’s not just me. I do not understand why this song gets all kinds of love and joy when it’s just Diddy’s version of Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It. Not in terms of lyric themes, but in terms of danceable blandness. I love it, but really, it wasn’t that bomb.

    I have no idea why but “This Is How We Do It” always makes me super happy. I also have a tendency to sing the opening line before doing various tasks and activities.

    It’s also from the 90s but this is another crowd pleaser song for me.

    (And I realize that me liking them slightly negates the post’s purpose but I also think it’s weird that “No Diggity” gets a lot of old school love. It’s not that old!!)

    No Diggity! Good call, Chriso. I have been known to sing Montell Jordan about random tasks too. Just like Tom.

    I shared this on the FB and my friend Dan said he was surprised this wasn’t on the list….

    I suppose, now that I’m seeing it again, it has far less pretense than your other choices. It’s pretty straightforward with it’s “cheeseosity.”

    Oh man, Humpty! Sometimes I forget this was a legitimate groove!!!

    It seems like everyone knows the words – at least the chorus (even folks who don’t listen to hip hop) – to this song. I remember when it dropped I thought it was cheesy like some of Too Short’s mid career tracks.

    It became my theme song when I had this weird, blingy, tricked out 1993 Honda Accord, with disco lights and all this other spoiled down. I got the car when my beloved grocerygetter died. I didn’t have a stereo, so I had to bring my iPod and a portable speaker to get my Big Tymers on. Oh Evelyn – the car’s name – was a trip!

    Ha. it could be argued that “Still Fly” was my theme song in college.

    You’re hip, but not that bad kind of hipster! No Diggity is so infectious!

    Does this one count (at least on the sheer fact that in “inspired” MC Hammer)

    This horror is the most awful hiphop song of all time
    Sadly sonys’ music nazis have removed the official video
