The Source December 1994 issue

The Source returned, after the messy departure of some original staff members, with a fairly light (but good) issue.  I don’t have much to say about it so I’ll just let you jump right into it while I begin scanning the 1995 issues.


Some highlights from this issue:

– Confirmation of the marriage between R. Kelly and Aaliyah on August 31, 1994 – The way this guy plays with his fate is amazing.  He should have gone to prison in ’95 for this.

Keith Murray with the hip-hop quotable for “The Most Beautifullest Thing in this World”

– Microphone Check with Bone Thugs N Harmony and Saafir

Digable Planets return a little more revolutionary with Blowout CombI don’t think it was ever reviewed by the Source so I’ll give it 4.5 mics for its brilliance. Even though it’s a very moody album, it’s definitely in my top 25 of all time.

Pete Rock and CL Smooth come back with more great music – …and then break up for whatever reason.  Why did they break up anyway? Egos and money?

– Haiti’s struggle continues

Scarface is ready to retire already?
