What were you doing in 97...? do you even remember?

Woke up this morning an had a song on my mind: Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz - Deja Vu.. my mind started wandering - when did that single come out again? how old was i? what was i doing again? the single came out in 1997 and the album was called "Make it Reign" and Because memories are terrible things to waist lets take it back to ninety seven: well..i was in grade school (6th grade) doublein shortys home on my two wheeler.. a problem for all teachers - the kid teachers loved to hate cuz i wouldn't shut up but they couldn't stay madd at me class clown type shit(substitute teachers nightmare)... kid involved in all school sports.. cuz that was the best way to get out to others schools an let them know wat's up.. didn't have a pager or a cellphone but had a black book where i stored all my numbers... had a e-mail but had no one to e-mail..Field trips were the shit... heavy on the Nintendo.. lunch bag with two grape juice boxes... tear-aways were in season(member those pants with buttons all down the side.?).. a pair of jordans was def not in the budget... i can't remember if i had a Sony CD Walkman or a Sony cassette Walkman ?...first year of sex ed.. an the bluejays still played at the skydome not the rogers center... without further adu - the song that started all this reminiscing andy,still can't figure out why this song was on my mind this morning tho... o well this shit is classic

THIS SONG RIGHT HERE!!! LOL. This drop still sends chills down my spine. I was chillen in the back seat with my older brother while moms was tryna put on make-up at a traffic light in Jacksonville, Florida. I remember it like it was yesterday cuz back in the day it was okay to be a radio head and know all the lyrics because they only dropped pure classics. I miss them days...
