Day 45, half way to 90 days which will be nearly 1/4 of the way to the Awards Ceremony of 2011. I’ve been behind on my blog updates as I find other things that are much more important to do on the weekend, like soccer with the boys or Bust-a-Move Family Tournament Gameplay. We’ve all been kickin’ each others butt in Bust-a-Move, in what sometimes becomes very intense battles when you’re trying to NOT lose to a 5 and 8 year old.

This leads me to an artist who’s been somewhat forgotten about, but played a responsible role in driving Hip Hop further into the fiber of the Pop culture with his hit song “Bust a Move.” Check out Young MC rocking a tux in the 90’s that looks like he can fit right in with these hipsters of today that think they are doing something new. He won the Best Rap Performance Grammy in 1990 for “Bust A Move” and hasn’t really bust the same move since.
