Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger

It was Kareem Akbar!…He was behind all this!
Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger

Say that a few times over either in your head or aloud…

“Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

It has the illest ring to it.

When shorty put me on to the song and broke down her interpretation of it’s meaning, I had an epiphany and immediately knew that it was going to be my personal mantra as well as the driving force behind the changes & growth you’ve seen here recently.

Daft Punk – “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

TWO SONGS THAT HAVE MY ATTENTION RIGHT NOW…

Always a fan of the proper cover, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when as I prepared to listen to this joint. The crazy awkwardness of Andre3000’s stylings and the lyrics are what made the song an ugly duckling. Luckily Raheem does the track justice by lightly crooning over this Flowlink remix.

Raheem DeVaughn – “Prototype” Remix Downloadable Link

Hazy…that’s about the best word to describe this track. It’s got a decidely Prince feel to it but one could pretty much say that about any Bilal track.

Bilal – “Get Out Of My Head”

Three Songs (plus two) THAT NEED TO BE LISTENED TO…

The Game – “The Face Of LA”

Hurricane still sounds hungry for more…

Outkast – “The Mighty O”

A fresh clean rip with no DJ…

T-Pain feat. R. Kelly, Paul Wall, Pimp C, MJG, Twista & Too Short – I’m In Love With A Stripper (Remix)

Even with an all-star lineup of hip-hop dudes, Kells, the R&B sanga, manages to upstage all with his usual “did this fool really just say that?” lyrics…

Outkast – “We Luv Deez Hoes”

Nothing like a being a pig and wallowing in the mud…

Young Jeezy – “Get Ya Mind Right”

“I’m the realest nigga in it/ya already know…/got “Trapper Of The Year” four times in a row”…nuff said.

FOUR BOOKS I’M READING OR HAVE READ IN THE PAST TWO WEEKS…

Death Of A Salesman – Arthur Miller

The Convenant With Black America – Tavis Smiley

The Book of Exodus : The Making and Meaning of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Album of the Century – Vivien Goldman

Live From Death Row – Mumia Abu Jamal

five songs ABOUT GETTIN’ MONEY THAT’LL KEEP YOU ON YOUR GRIZZLY…

Flying Lizards – “Money” (That’s What We Want)

Quite obnoxious but it’ll move you…

Young Lay feat. Mac Mall and Ray Luv – “All About My Fetti”

It’s all about the piano…

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony – “Mr. Bill Collector”

“Fuck you, pay me!” – Goodfellas

R. Kelly feat. Nas – “Did You Ever Think?”

Understandable smooth shit…

MC Breed & 2Pac – “Gotta Get Mine”

The early beginnings of what would go on to become Thug Living…

Who is Little Brother?

Little Brother is “Cheating” & “Slow It Down”

The polar opposites…the heads & tails of being men & how we might view relationships…

Stay tuned…more coming soon.
