#TBT PMD “I Saw It Comin’”

Big shout to the man above for puttin’ me on game to the “I Saw It Comin’” video as Jalen Rose himself made mention of PMD‘s highest charting solo single in this week’s Jalen & Jacoby podcast.

ICYMI, last week, Jalen & Jacoby started a hip hop group bracket pitting 32 rap groups or duos against each other. On Tuesday’s episode, the two ran through the first round of results and after recapping that EPMD went down in the first round, Jalen shed some light that he and Ice Cube cameo in the “I Saw It Comin’” video in 1994… playing Sega Genesis. Intrigued, I pressed pause (at the 43 minute mark) and a quick Google search later I see just that… Jalen & Cube playin some NBA Jam Tournament Edition, ha!

The song itself is classic 90s too — you’ll immediately be taken back to the time with the beat, PMD’s style (he does his thing here), the text graphic (!), and just the video as a whole contributing to this great, nostalgic feeling. It’s also fun to appreciate this 20 years later and for a young generation like me (I was 7 at the time, gimme a break!) to appreciate all of the in-depth 90s hip hop for perhaps the first time.
