If you live in Philly, surely you know by now about Emynd & Bo Bliz’s epic ongoing It’s The Year Parties with 215hiphop.com that have been setting Philly off for exactly 4 years this month. The format is simple: pick a year and play ONLY SONGS FROM THAT YEAR. For some years, this is more challenging than others, but on the whole, the party has been and continues to be a fantastic success that attracts a wide variety of folks from all walks of life and ages. We’re extremely proud of this party and genuinely love doing it every couple months.
As a bit of a celebration of our 4 year anniversary, and just because I felt like doing a mix, I put together this mix of songs from 2001 to help y’all get ready to party with us this Saturday.

Man, y’all can sit up here all quiet and whatnot just because it’s 4:30 and you can’t take much more of the work week, but I’ve already mentally checked out of this piece and into a 1998 state of mind. As always I’ve been prepping myself for the gems that Emynd and Bo Bliz are about to drop on Saturday, and since it’s my thing to bring the throwbacks I’m gonna have to steal a little of their thunder by reminding folks about Outkast’s “Skew It on The Bar-B,” my favorite track from 1998’s Aquemini. The video quality is kind of garbage but Wu Tang and Outkast is like chocolate and peanut butter. Delish.
Man, we just got back from Stockholm and Helsinki this weekend and we officiall CRUSHED that sh*t. Such a fun weekend. Big ups to Stefski, Agge, and the Top Billin’ boys for putting us on and allowing us to destroy their clientele with a whole crapload of Bmore, hip-hop, and house. Truly a fantastic weekend.
The madness continues as we’re back stateside this Wednesday in Philly where we are doing our next installment of “It’s The Year…” at Johnny Brenda’s with “IT’S THE YEAR 1993“! Should be an absolute rager. Click the flyer for more info:
And on Thursday, Emynd is heading back to Europe to rock out with The Count & Sinden in London town at On The Rocks. It’s going to be an officially WILD affair. Click the flyer for more details.
See y’all there!
Lastly, if you haven’t seen or heard it yet, here’s Emynd’s new track with Young Chris from Rocafella and Def Jam that can be downloaded HERE.
This Saturday, Emynd and Bo Bliz are back with their “IT’S THE YEAR…” party in conjunction with 215HIPHOP.COM for IT’S THE YEAR 1996! Obviously, we’ll be playing a ton of jams from 1996 and it’s going to be a hella fun trip through memory-lane. If you were at the 2000 jawn, you know how awesome this is going to be. All the big club joints from the year and some lesser known classics.
10PM to 2AM and only $5. Upstairs at Johnny Brenda’s which is a great venue with incredible sound and a really good selection of beer—from cheap PBR cans, to a wide selection of drafts.
Also, first 50 people through the door will get a free 1996 inspired T-Shirt we made specially for this occasion!
Feel free to dress the part as well and rock some gear you were rocking in High School! I’m rocking Hilfiger, some timbs, and fatigues…
