The Arsenal on Pico plays the best music. I hadn't been there since college but even then, Arsenal was the place for old school hip hop and r&b. I was there this past weekend and probably yelled "I LOVE THIS SONG!" during every single song the dj played (I know ...annoying). We had Biggie, Tupac, Tribe, LL Cool J, Bone Thugs, Common Sense, Mase, Lauryn Hill, Blackstreet and so on. Needless to say, it was a damn good time and it reminded me of one of my favorites...TLC's Red Light Special. Let's talk about sex baby?
I first heard this song when my family went camping with all of my dad's college alums and their families. The much older boy I had a crush on was jamming out to this song on his hand-held CD player wearing an oversized Nautica parka and let me listen to it (swoooon)....It was an inappropriate song for an 11 year old and I had no idea what a red light special was (actually, I still have no idea ), but I credit this song for making my first real childhood crush that much more memorable. Oh the 90's!
