Night Clubs - Hip-Hop Soul
While she spoke to the souls of many, she also spoke for a generation of music lovers that still refer to those days as the "Golden Era" of hip-hop. The very essence of the term "Hip-Hop Soul" speaks to not only the music, but also to a style and culture that was groomed in the late 80's and reached its pinnacle in the mid 90's with the help of artists like Mary J. Blige, Nas, Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G, Tupac, Guy, Outkast, Wu-Tang, SWV, and countless others. It was a time when originality was at the forefront of the music and the business side of it played the background.
With that being said, there are many "Golden Era" purists that still enjoy hitting the streets to relive or recapture those moments that defined their young adult years. They want to avoid the typical LA velvet rope scene where 21 year olds fight for the bouncer's attention. Instead, they crave a more mature environment yet with the oxymoronic twist of grooving, shouting, jumping, and grinding to the music they enjoyed when they were once seeking the club "gate keepers" attention.
Believe it or not, amongst all the velvet ropes, bottle service, form-fitting dresses, and skinny jeans, there is a scene in LA for those aforementioned purists or "Golden Era" lovers. This is for the grown and sexy!
