TBT: Nuff of the Ruff Stuff

I’m not mad, I just had nuff’ of the ruff stuff

Remember when Queen Latifah was a rapper only?

You talk about flavor, I got enough flavor to make a grapefruit sweet
Get old ladies jumpin’ out of their seats
Change a peach to a pear to a plum with a little sun ‘n rays
I got flavor for days

I listened to this album so many times in college. Nineteen years old, energy to burn, I’d put the cassette in my Sony Walkman and march down Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan, from 120th Street, sometimes as far as Columbus Circle, more often turning around at 72nd where Amsterdam meets Broadway, march back up Broadway. That’s 5 or 6 miles of pop-pop.

Nuff of the Ruff Stuff — not so different from what Senate Democrats were feeling with their filibuster yesterday. In fact, that’s it exactly:

I’ve had enough. I’ve had enough of the ongoing slaughter of innocents, and I’ve had enough of inaction in this body,” Murphy said during the filibuster which he launched around 11:21 a.m. Wednesday.

Thank you, La, who’s “often been classified as a feminine teacher.”
