Throwback Thursday: "Funkdafied" -- Da Brat ft. Jermaine Dupri

Da Brat arrived on the scene in 1994 with this banger that went to #1 on the charts and had folks shaking asses from coast to coast. And that's appropriate, since Dupri and the So So Def label were based in Atlanta, Da Brat is from Chicago, and the song samples an Isley Brothers track—a move straight out of the Death Row/Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg playbook.

Geography can be so damn funky.
