You Wouldn't Understand If You Stood Under It
Since I'm still putting the finishing touches on my next links post, I thought I might be a good blogger, and hit you up with a few extra-special joints in the meantime:
"If Time Could Stand Still"---Ella Washington
This is a beautiful track by a soul sista with a wonderfully unique voice. If you're diggin' Ms. Washington like I do, you can also check out these resources.
"Moment Of Clarity (Pete Rock remix)"---Jay-Z
I can honestly say that Pete rarely disappoints me. He's an amazing DJ and producer, in addition to being an exceptionally accomplished crate digga. I may be in the minority with this, but Eminem's production on the original joint didn't particularly impress me at all. However, if there are any Stans in the audience who want to argue that Em is a better producer than Pete, I'm always up for a good debate ;)
"Throw Your Hands Up"---Eightball & MJG w/ Outkast
This isn't my favorite Outkast joint or collabo by any stretch of the imagination, but I was bumpin' some grooves earlier, and this song ended up in the mix. I'm one of the few people who isn't hatin' all over Idlewild, but I admit that I miss the days when Big Boi and Andre 3000 sounded like this---just plain durty. No matter how hard I try, I can't snap my neck to "Hollywood Divorce". Call me shallow, but sometimes the head-nod factor can be rather essential...
