I recently found a CD of hip-hop instrumentals that I made in 2004-2005. Read about and listen to the music.
I purchased I Am on audio tape a few weeks after it was released; if I had to estimate a day, I’d guess April 18th or April 25th. I remember it was a Sunday in April of 1999, and I bought the tape at the Blockbuster Music in Lakeside Mall in Metairie, LA. Bill Clinton was president, Kosovo stuff was happening, and TLC’s “No Scrubs” was the number one song in the country.
