Closing with a Song: Ready or Not by the Fugees

It feels as if right when The Fugees took off, they were no more. As a matter of fact that’s exactly how it played out. They all went solo. “Killing Me Softly” was a phenomenon, but the next music video was extremely influential on the hip hop music video world.

“Ready or Not” had a huge budget and featured a lot of money thrown on the screen. Gone was the party and hanging out style, in was the militarized Michael Bay-style action premise. Sharareh Drury is back as we go over this substantial video and kick ass song.

Due to copyright and fair use laws as well as Apple and Spotify sweeps for such things, I’m not going to roll the dice and be including a clip of the song in the episode. However, you can watch the entire video before listening right here.

The Brandon Peters Show will return next week with another Roundtable episode! “Top 10 Soundtrack Songs of the 90s” with Sabina Graves (Something Scary,, Michelle Suter-Shoemaker (PopCon, Don’t Flinch) and David Banks (Screenland Squadron).
