Remembering Kurt Cobain

Some times I forget what was going on in 1991 with music, and then I think to myself how can I forget. I was in the record store buying some of the greatest hip hop albums ever. In case you forgot let me remind you and just in case you may not have been born here are some of the albums of that year,

NWA – Efil4zaggin

De La Soul – De La Soul is Dead

A Tribe Called Quest – The Low End Theory

Ice Cube – Death Certificate

So if you know about music you will know that hiphop was entering its prime and entering all areas in the world it was a force that was unstoppable. Out of the blue in September close to the year being over a single hit the air waves called “Smells like teen spirit” before anyone knew what was going on it took over the airwaves and came from a album called Nevermind” The Group Nirvana. This album was different from what anyone had heard before, it was raw, it was real, it was Kurt Cobain at his best. Regardless if you only listened to hiphop, R&B, Dance, Jazz whatever you could not deny that this album was unbelievable. I remember trying not to like it because I was a hip hop fan and how could someone that likes hip hop listen to this crazy music. It wasn’t about it being grunge it was just the fact that it was so real it spoke to us all. Anyone that understood music understood that this was a classic album and Kurt Cobain was an unbelievable talent.

Cobain was 27 when he took his own life on 5 April 1994 in the garage of his home in Seattle, Washington. His music lives on with us forever, and how that specific album took the world by force was something that I will never forget.
