It's common knowledge, but 1994 was such a sick year for hip hop!
Those sax samples... Lots of boom bap, and also a mix of early 90's
twee/pop/R&B, Doom metal, and new age fingerstyle guitar.
Always Madonna, 90's alt/indie/shoegaze/dance, hip hop,

I am fortunate to be privileged in having a choice of diet. Vegan a
great majority of the time, but I don't really get up-in-arms and
make snide or unsolicited comments about what people around me are
eating. I believe actions speak louder than words. That being said,
I don't think that, unlike a toddler or my roommate's dog, you
should put something in your mouth just because you can.
I enjoy and appreciate food, though I am not a 'foodie.'
Spinach, chickpeas, broccoli, jalepeños, black beans, fresh greens,
avocados, walnuts, nans, strawbs, spice, a vegan slice now and
then. A fair amount of homemade pizza since I discovered the local
grocery store has pre-made flour and yeast balls for $2
'out-the-dough.' I also make a dope Banh Mi.
