OSF: Let’s Get Busy


This is TSR’s first outing on the Old School Friday meme tip but we decided to do some new things in 2010 and we think this will count as one of them. Plus it lets us do what we love, reminisce about Old School Music…

So this weeks OSF theme is “Let’s Get Busy“. Now I’m not sure if that’s an invite to let the imagination go where the wild things are or not but I’ll try to be as PC as possible with this.

When the phrase “Let’s Get Busy” is used, only two things come to my mind:

A: Arsenio Hall aka “Mr. Long Fingaz” using the words at the beginning of every episode of his late 80’s to early 90’s Late Night talk show.

Mr. Long Fingaz

Though you may also remember him as

performing his smash hit “Owww!” and the other track that I thought was hilarious, “Stank Breath“. Click here if you really wanna get into the greatness of all that LP had to offer.

Anyway, I would stay up a little past my bedtime, despite my Great-Grandmother’s warnings to go to bed cause I had to make sure I caught it.

I mean, it was that awkward Freshman in High School period of time when image mattered and being up on the latest and greatest could either make or break your reputation. So there was no way in the world I was going to walk into school the next day and not be able to converse with everyone else about who performed the night before.  Trust me, you didn’t want to be the odd man out who didn’t see it and have that WTF?! look on your face while standing at the Bus Stop the next morning when the Homies asked if you saw “So & So” or “Such & Such” on Arsenio last night.

So this video has to be what I consider one of the greatest examples of “Getting Busy”, Dawg Pound style:

Moving right along, the only other thing that comes to mind when I hear “Let’s Get Busy” is


Just in case you forgot all about RAab and this gem from his “You’re The One” LP you can get acquainted again here. Oh and just to sweeten the pot, here’s a Right Click & Save As download of the track so you can add it to your Mp3 player and reminisce later with someone who makes you think about “Gettin’ Busy”…

    Very nice!

    I always have the most fun to see how everyone interpreted the theme. Most participants decided to go away from the “getting-busy-bedroom” stuff.

    Happy OSF!
