#TBT For Real

Had a really cool flashback today!

So, I was at #SuperiorCuts in LaGrange getting my beard shaped and trimmed (because I obviously don’t get haircuts anymore). The radio was playing the “old school” station KISS 104.1 and one of my favorite MCs and songs comes on – Big Daddy Kane – Smooth Operator.

Immediately, I flashed back to my childhood barbershop #LesHairHut in Englewood, NJ, circa 1989. I actually remember a time listening to that exact song in a barber chair as a kid. More than likely it was being played on WBLS  107.5 or KISS  98.7 because this was waaaaaay before Hot 97 would even play #hiphop.
