"Freedom (R&B Version)"
"Freedom (Rap Version)"
Man, I still love these joints. They made me feel so good and empowered when I first heard them. I was 13 at the time (Dag, I'm getting old, LOL!) and it just made an impression on me to see healthy, inspiring, different images of Black women on TV. Boy do I miss that.
In my opinion, during this time, there was such a huge surplus of talented artists and the vehicle for variety was there. I wish it could be that way again. Nowadays, finding good music is a project as it is not as simple as turning on the radio and/or the TV to discover refreshing new artists. Thank God for the Internet though.
