Sufjab Stevens, the inspiration for the Roots undun album, covers the classic R.E.M. song “The One I Love”
Shout out the the homie Ro Blvd!! I’ve been telling people about him for years and finally over the last few people been listening….He’s dope as hell and most of you producer cats are not! He has an album coming out called Heart Pounding Panic, it’s dropping in January…you’ve been warned!
Anthony Hamilton is the embodiment of modern day soul music. His new album Back To Love, is proof of that very fact. Check out the first single “Woo”
I like the road Banner took with this, like I said before “Since when is your hoodness based on intellectual prowess?” At the end of the day, V-Nasty is a child and should be treated as such, a permanent seat at the kid’s table is all she’ll get from me. I don’t agree with the use of the word by anyone to be honest, the word carries with it a rich tradition of hate and the embrassing of the term seems a little self defeating to me. That’s neither here nor there, I hope Banner doesn’t respond and I don’t believe he will at all, but there is a little part of me that would like to see her destroyed on wax………..D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-E-D!!!!
Stevie Wonder’s A Song In The Key Of Life is widely regarded as a classic album. It was the 3rd album of what I consider the best three album period of any artist’s catalog. Innervisions, Fulfillingness’ First Finale, and Songs In The Key of Life will forever live as complete and outstanding bodies of work. The fact they came in a 3 year span from the same artist is amazing, not to mention they followed Music Of My Mind and Talking Book, which are incredible albums as well. It’s impossible for me to pick a favorite song from these albums or even Stevie’s catalog because, well it’s just impossible. So my favoite Stevie song for the day or at least the last 30 minutes is “Love Is In Need Of Love Today”, like so many of Stevie’s other works, this song is more true today than the day it was written. In a world gone mad with it’s own vanity, we have lost the meaning of love, sure we show it during the holidays or when we yearn for affection, but shouldn’t we exemplify the spirit of love every day? In fact isn’t that what God is all about, love? Shouldn’d we love more and hate less? Wouldn’t the world be a better place if our first impulse was to love? I wonder……………….
