else in this country is at a high cost
but at least a man can dream.
2003 was the year of 50 Cent, Jay-Z and
R. Kelly and all the boy bands. We had
some other highlights in the season but
these were the names in the headlines.
If I hear one more R. Kelly made song
with someone else...
The year 2004 is here and I want to see
some changes come about in Hip Hop/ R&B.
Here are a few:
A new A Tribe
Called Quest song: by the end of the
year at least. Let me know the comeback
is indeed true!
A new Black Star album: It’s been
a long time, Take some time from other
endeavors and give back please.
Respect for Ghostface after
his Pretty Toney album: This dude has
consistently put out craziness (note his
three albums Ironman, Supreme Clientele
and Bulletproof Wallets. When are people
going to give him his props?
A Lox Album: Each put out
a credible solo effort now its time for
the wonderful three to form like Voltron!
The return of Jill Scott: This Philly
queen needs to bless the world with her
second full LP.
The end of every R&B artist using
R. Kelly for production: It’s not
that it sounds bad, it's just unoriginal.
Please get your own style!
Please Slowdown on boy and girl groups
who show more body than singing and performing
talent: Nuff said!
Lauryn Hill please get back in the studio
and comeback with a classic non-live LP:
I enjoyed the unplugged LP but it was
often with the same beat and a little
melancholy, I need to hear you on different
music and topics with a few friends stopping
in for you to get your proper due back.
Brian McKnight come back home: Return
to what made you famous and loved by many
and please quit infusing the Hip Hop with
you certified soulful voice. Once an album
DJ Premier needs to come with a compilation
album: After all the songs and albums
he has made is there any doubt that a
mix of the best producer and his family
would be killa!
