Music .:Aug 21 10:.
I came across this cat through another blog site that I frequent and respect. Ish is pretty dope. I'm really diggin this track called 'Anthem' and 'Soon It Will Be Cold Enough..." I am not even going to try to put this in any genre. I'm really diggin the violins.
R.I.P. Guru .:Apr 20 10:.
Crazy story. No BS... I got home today and was digging through some hold Hip Hop LPs I haven't listened to in awhile. I pulled out my original pressiong of Guru's Jazzmatazz and was playing it while I was cleaning up around the crib. I hadn't listened to that album in a minute. Classic album! I just found out Guru passed on the internet an hour after I pulled his record. Madd respect to Guru. Rest in peace.
SOHO/Village Record Shops .:Feb 16 10:.
Got a chance to do a little record shopping. Stopped by a few spots in the SOHO, Village area. I wasn't looking to dig on this trip but as we were just walking around the area we came across some shops so I HAD to stop in and take a peek. Definitely a lot of great selections and prices varied. There were a couple of spots with dollar bins but for the most part these spots knew their records and priced them accordingly.
Oh yeah... went to a show at the Le Poisson Rouge and saw Bonerama a New Orleans funk band. Place was packed and music was good.
NYC Musicals .:Feb 16 10:.
So we got a chance to see a few musicals during our stay in Manhattan. By far the best we saw was In the Heights. If you ever get a chance to see this musicals I would highly recommend it. We also saw Fela. Music of Fela Kuti was dope, it was almost like being in a concert. Lastly, we saw Wicked. No better place to see Wicked than on Broadway. Great story about the Wicked Witch of the Wizard of Oz and a definite classic, not my favorite but a great show.
