DAY 51 GRAMMY CHASE: PUSH IT

Day 51, fresh from another Soccer Saturday, watching our boys “push” the ball around on the field and loving every moment. “Pushing it,” or “Push Up” is what we yell across the field to the boys when we want them to play a little more aggressive and pressure the ball, but in this case, “Push It” was the name of Salt N Pepa’s hit song that garnered a Grammy Nomination in 1989, the first year their created a category for Rap honors. Salt N Pepa was one of the groups along with Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince that boycotted the Awards that same year. See HERE for details on 1989 protest.

I remember how sexy I thought they were with the “bobbed haircut,” dookie gold necklace, leather SNP oversized varsity jackets and spandex. Little did I know or understand when I was younger that Herbie Lovebug was the mastermind behind their earlier hits. In closing, my message to the fledging artist, entrepreneur, musician etc, PUSH IT!!..Push it beyond and above your competition. Push it outside of the box. PUSH IT!!!
