I'm assuming the majority of you didn't even know Jamie Foxx had a music career before he kicked "Slow Jams" with Kanye Titta and Twista back in 2004. Funny thing is, I have a feeling the fantastic Mr. Foxx didn't either. After the transitioning actor found out eleven years prior that unsubliminally awesome album titles like Peep This don't sell records by themselves and subsequently moved on from his childhood passion, the burgeoning actor found himself on the receiving end of a game-changing alley-oop from the hands of the young son of Chicago, who would ultimately change the face of the soul genre that Jamie had once himself once tried to conquer. Ever since, the man who vicariously won awards for the late Ray Charles peruses his way onto pretty much any high-profile industry release without a hitch. Which leads me to one question; Is Jamie Foxx really as talented a singer/songwriter as his resume reads, or did he just come across the perfect outliers to slide into a prime spot as the entertainment industry's Bo Jackson? The past week or so has been consumed by the sounds of Sir Lucious Left Foot and amongst nothing but choice material, the only song I skip is the Foxx-featuring "Hustle Blood.
"Guess who's back on the West Coast track It's the muthafuckin' messiah of Gangsta Rap Still dippin' in 64's, still puffin' on the same chronic Haters mad cuz I still got it I never fall off - even without the Doc You nigga's sellin' your soul trying to stay on top Bitch nigga check your Kotex You niggas ain't movin' shit like the hand on a fake ass Rolex I'm 5 million sold, the cover of last album the only time you see me sitting on gold I'm the most anticipated, most celebrated Most loved and the muthafuckin' most hated Keep rollin' like gold Dayton's Nigga's got The Game fucked up like Hennessey with a Coke chaser You gotta deal with me I'm the West Coast savior Nigga's think of me every time they're '64's scrappin'" "Lookin' At You" off Doctor's Advocate Those lyrics came to mind as soon as I saw that pic.
