Back in the day is one of those songs you can’t help but sing along to. Its catchy hook, along with its classic sound, has made it an anthem for hip hop nostalgia world wide. The video features Ahmad looking back on his life through his own eyes, and reminiscing on when things seemed so much simpler.
Since I was only three at the time of the release I don’t remember much of what he so fondly describes, but Ahmad uses such incredible detail and imagery in both his rap and video that you feel like you are back in the 90’s when, “dudes had on Nike suits/ and the Pumas with the fat laces/ cause’ it was either that or K-swiss”. So sit back, relax and reminisce on the good-old-days while you listen to this classic throwback.
