What more can say? I wouldn’t be here today if the old school didn’t pave the way. That is very much the idea at the core of Throwback Thursday, and the reason why Cookin’ Soul’s remix of Tupac’s “Old School” is a perfect fit for this series. “Old School” is off of Tupac’s third album, Me Against the World. As the man who came to personify West coast rap in the ’90s, it is easy to understand why so many actually forget that Tupac was actually from New York. The song is a callback to simpler times and pays homage to all of the things that had sculpted Tupac into the man he had become. Cookin’ Soul’s accentuation of the stringed bass and the addition of the horns give the tune a very chill jazzy feel. Check it out below.
