The Present Is A Gift…


I’m a firm believer in the old school way of listening to music: “Press Play”.. not Diddy’s way.. but the real way: no shuffling, skipping, seeking, forwarding.. just press play and enjoy the whole album.

Just think: when was the last time you ever stopped to listen to an outro or a funny skit on any album? Been a while huh? Yeah, thought so.

Anyways, I was listening to Common’s album “Be” on the way to work this morning and I must say I think the Intro on that joint is probably one of best I’ve ever heard on a Hip Hop album, yes, ever!

Can’t think of a better way to start the day.


Now Listening to – Common – Be (Intro)

  1. Go ‘head, tell that. That’s the only way to appreciate a good album, start to finish. I do that all the time when driving long distances; it’s amazing how many good tracks I discover that way.

    And yes, Common is like that. He and Talib are seriously underrated.

  2. Right on. Nothing like Press Play on a open highway.. especially!

    As for the underratedness, such is life.

    I probably be lyrically Talib Kweli
    Truthfully I wanted to rhyme like common sense..” (c) Hov
