oaktown357Tabitha “Terrible T” King and DJuana “Sweet L.D.” Johnican started out as backup dancers for MC Hammer back in the late 80’s early 90’s but they soon ventured out on their own to form Oaktown 3-5-7. Their biggest hit was “Juicy Gotcha Krazy”, but my favorite was “Wild & Loose”. I mean, what’s not to like about the video? There’s a little bit of everything: spandex, Hammer pants, tigers, bubble baths, beauty salons, bumpin’ n grindin’, Gumby fades, the list goes on. Maybe Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is a fan too? Did you see the silhouettes against neon colors throughout the video?

I remember watching this on Soul Beat (“TV Network number ooooonnnnnnneeeeeee!!!!”) and breaking a sweat trying to mimic their dance moves. These ladies were in shape!

Check out Big Man blowin’ at around the 3:20 mark.


Flashback Friday! (Here Comes The Hammer-MC Hammer)

You can’t tell me no one wasn’t dancing to MC Hammer back in the 90’s! I had to post this particular video “Here Comes the Hammer” because it was a very fond childhood memory because he filmed this (along with the rest of his videos/psa set) in my old neighborhood (which was his old neighborhood too). I remember looking out the window and watching them make the street dancing scene and the one in the boxing gym. I also remember the film crew spraying graffiti, but leaving it as they wrapped up production. Ahhhh, nostaligia..
