sometimes you go back
As you could see now I'm on twitter..................I know I know I said I wasn't feeling it like that, but so many folks I deal with are on it so I figured I'd give it another shot. That, Like this blog has become for me, is medicinal. Also, just like how I feel about my blog, is something I do just to do. I don't care about how many folks follow me, I'm cool with just 1 person. I like it more so to see whats going on around me. Google NEWS is my shit. Period. It also gives me a chance to let y'all in on my culinary skilled choicemanship. Anyways I was thinking about some other things I wasn't feeling at first but have become some o my favorite things.
Wutang Enter the 36- I was feeling the singles, Methodman and Protect ya Neck. After they gave me shit like Tearz and bring the ruckus, I wasn't feeling the effort. That on top of the fact that Redman had something out, didn't give the album the run it needed. I picked it up a few weeks later and it grew on me and became one of my favorite joints.
De La Soul- Stakes is High- Again, Loved the singles. I got this album and Nas It Was Written the same day. De La lost at first because It Was written was so highly anticipated,but once I finally got fully into the album it became my favorite DeLa Album. They, like Ghost and Rae,Jeru the Damaga,Nas and Tupac, had Anti-Biggie,BadBoy,Puffy lyrics throughout the album.
OC Jewelz- Think I got this and BigPun album the same day. Needless to say Pun won that one. OC album did not grab me at all when I first listened to it. I was angry because the first one was my shit. I liked the singles, but he wasnt going there lyrically enough. The thing I had wanted multi's in the verses. I wanted him to rhyme the whole verse with the same word. I wanted somebody spitting, so I was listening to Capital Punishment crazy....I think it took me a year to resurrect Jewelz and it was on a roadtrip with some chick that I really started to appreciate the album as a whole. This was definitely a complete project. Now one of my favorite albums to listen to. I had to re-realize that O.C has his own style.
