New Orleans Hot Boys came hard out the chute with ‘Neighborhood Superstar’ the first single off their debut LP ‘Get It How U Live!’ on the Cash Money imprint. It didn’t hurt one bit that the cut featured Manny Fresh’s Big Tymers.

This song may be the first instance of the world ‘bling’ being used on a hip hop song, “got diamonds that will ‘bling’ blind ya.”

20 years later the cut sounds as fresh as it did the day it came out.
