I heard a bunch of those Nas tracks yesterday.  This might be my favorite album of the bunch.

Not sure if the last two even count in that category.

Cool, swap em out for Three the Hard Way and Bucktown.
Fair deal.

He's sticking to his schedule o far. I still haven't listened to Pusha T's "Daytona", Kanye's "Ye" or Kanye and Kid Cudi's "Kids See Ghosts" though fans are loving all three projects. They've made people forget or defend Kanye's problematic statements, but not me. I MAY check out the upcoming Kanye produced Nas album, I don't know yet.
There's so much music I"m still working my way through it.  The first song on the Kanye album is as shocking as it's meant to me. My kids loves several other tracks.  Lyrically it can be mundane, or simplistic, but Kanye's musical instincts always goes toward cinematic. 

The first track on the Pusha T album is quite the banger as played out as the gangster/drug dealer world is, Pusha has a great voice and is quite the lyricist. 

Still working my way through the Kids See Ghosts album. 

I guess the Nas album is behind schedule and now Jay Z and Beyonce dropped a surprise collaboration album to accompany their joint tour. 

All this plus Black Thoughts' EP all means lots of new music for the summer.

I'm giving the protesters TripleX's address as we speak!

lol I had to see it man. The original is one of my least favorite of the 70's Blaxploitation films but I love the genre and was curious about a contemporary take on it. I also wanted to know how Future would stack up against Curtis Mayfield, to no one's surprise the answer is not very well. Heard three Future songs on the radio yesterday, the fact that none of them came from the soundtrack when the movie was released this week is telling.
Superfly is one of your least favorite blaxploitation films?  Which are your favorites?

And yes, I"m a huge Cassandra Wilson fan, but when it comes to female singers are are so many greats I left off the list.  I could do another ten names without breaking a sweat.

I have, over time, been convinced that I have been too hard on Whitney.  Jamie Foxx in particular gave a very persuasive argument one day.  He told me basically every great female singer I love is a fan of Whitney.

the black female singer/songwriter is a tricky proposition.  I can name many white ones, from Bjork to Carole King to Joni Mitchell.  But I could think of their black equivalents that could be on the same list as Stevie Wonder, Prince and Smokey Robinson.  But there are a lot of artists whose process I don't know.  Please enlighten me!

I am looking at the 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' poster and thinking to myself ...I have never seen that movie and if I do it will be with the lights on.
I"m really planning on seeing it again this summer.
