Blast From The Past

It's been a while since we've had a blast from the past.

Aaliyah's death was one of the most tragic stories in music history. Her talent was much beyond her years, proving to everyone at 16 that age ain't nuthin but a number.
The album Age Ain't Nuthin But A Number ('94) made Aaliyah a household name. It was actually in Red's household where I first came across the CD and fell in love with it shortly there after. Back and Forth and the subsequent remix featuring none other than (alleged) prepubescent predator R. Kelly. Aaliyah appeared on about every one of my mix tapes from back in the day. I'd just like to remind everyone about how awesome and beautiful Aaliyah really was.

Here is a classic number one single from Aaliyah's incredible catalog of songs.

If Your Girl Only Knew (96)

She was a scorch rocket, it almost makes the fact that R. Kelly was Back and Forthing the shit out of her before she reached the age of majority understandable. Actually, wait a minute now, it doesn't at all. I'm sure R. Kelly has more skeletons in his closet than the Grim Reaper.
