Before I even get into this post… If you’ve heard this song, you know what it is. When that beat drops? CLASSIC. For those who aren’t familiar, “I Got 5 On It” was released in 1995 by Luniz and featured on their Operation Stackola album. The song also features vocals from R&B singer Michael Marshall. “I Got 5 On It” was certified platinum by the RIAA within a few months of it being released and reached #8 on Billboards Hot 100. Check it out below.
I was entirely too young to know what having “5 on it” meant, but even at that age I couldn’t deny loving the beat. For those of you who still don’t know what it means… look it up.
