T.R.O.Y. 101: Our Favorite Posts

We originally tried to be clever and list 101 of our favorite or most notable posts. We found it nearly impossible to narrow it down, so we wound up with 116. But who’s really counting? This list is for the readers who recently joined us, the ones who check daily and can never seem to catch up, and the occasional visitors who miss out on a lot. Download a rare album for the brothers who ain’t here. Use this as a guide to the blog or as an introduction to T.R.O.Y. for that special someone in your life who still laments the day mom threw all his Stretch & Bobbito tapes in the garbage. If we have one ambition as a team blog, it is to be your one-stop shop for all things throwback and judging by this list, I’d say we’re on our game. Reacquaint yourself with the music you used to love and some you never knew existed, and give us some feedback so we can keep growing and improving.
We recognize that some of the uploads might be in need of refreshing, so leave us a note if that’s the case and we’ll work on it.

    I'm honored to have made the cut. I'll try to get an updated link of Kwam's guest verses up soon. I'm one remix instrumental shy from (what I think but hope isn't) a complete discography.
