    The song "The Many Ways" was incorrectly read as debuting at #67. Shoulda been #167. Oops!

    Epi #31 - Foxy Brown

     
    Featured song Swing My Way by K.P. and Envyi
     
    Show Notes/Corrections
    I incorrectly called Foxy Brown's 3rd album Broken Silences, the correct title is Broken Silence.
    The song Hot Spots peaked at #91 on the charts, not #1.

    Epi #30 - One Hit Wonders

    Featured Songs:
    Ice Ice Baby / Vanilla Ice
    They Call Me D-Nice / D-Nice
    Whoot There It Is / 95 South
    Whoomp, There It Is / Tag Team
    My Boo / Ghost Town DJ's
    Dazzey Duks / Duice
     
    Show Notes:
    For the D-Nice song, I mentioned that the Buzzsaw sample was a tiny one but that is clearly a research error as the sample is a large one and clearly a big part of the song.
