Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs "Be A Father To Your Child" [Music Video] (1991)
It's Sunday, it's Father's Day, which means... you guessed it! #OldSchoolSundays: Father's Day Edition!
Going to keep it to two classic, throwback selections, first going back over 20 years to 1991 when Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs released a slick video for "Be A Father To Your Child" to drive home their message to deadbeat dads. This one's not so much a tribute track, but just a great overall message to have a foundation and be responsible for your children. One gem of an example: "It's not the presents, it's your presence and the essence.. of being there!" Sit back and appreciate the audio and visual experience, which is vintage 1991 all the way around.
And how else can we conclude this post? In the same fashion Common closes albums. Here's "Pop's Rap 2" off One Day It'll All Make Sense as Lonnie Lynn Sr. shares some words of advice or experiences as part of the series — all set to a chill, jazzy instrumental. Gotta love the "Pops Raps" series!

Lastly: Happy Father's Day to all! If you're with your pops today, or he's out there somewhere or up above, cherish that communication and/or special moment(s)! Also gotta send a special shoutout to my own Papa Tibs — GWHH's #1 Fan! Hope you enjoy your burned copy of Yeezus today! (haha, jokes jokes...)
