This was one of those songs that I first got put on to that made get addicted to Miami hip-hop back in the day. This came out in 1998/1999 or so. And I remember DJ Suicide on 99 Jamz’s Thunderstorm Mix, heÂ played it back to back a couple times and I rushed all around my house to find an empty cassette tape to record it. He also played the remix as well back then.
First Platoon never really blew up and reached platinum status, but they did give a different taste of Miami’s at-the-time, growing hip-hop scene. And as you could see in the video above, a young and anorexic-looking Khaled is in the clip during the acting scenes. Yes, Khaled was around back then and even had a song or two produced on First Platoon’s 1999 album Connected.
