Brings back memories from stockton ca.harold n.
Ooo sound good
Definitely in my top 100!!! =)
This is the stuff I grew up listening to, although I'm only 16, this what my father grew up with because he came from a very modest childhood, he passed this onto me. I do like my mainstream stuff a lot, but I always catch myself turning to this type.
