Every two or three months without fail my barber will ask me if I’ve gotten any new music from Fonzworth Bentley. Depending on how many people are within earshot, we might hear someone snicker or say “that dude who used to hold Diddy’s umbrella?” If an iPod is handy we might throw on “C.O.L.O.U.R.S.” real quick to shut them up or just ignore them. But, this has been going on since 2008 or 2009.
This Friday will be different though, as I’ll walk in the shop a mere mortal and leave with carte blanche privileges in the movie bin thanks to Mr. Bentley finally dropping the C.O.L.O.U.R.S mixtape on iTunes. You can’t roll around with Diddy all those years and not pick up some business acumen, so I can respect the grind. However, you can head over to his site to stream and download select tracks.
As for me, I’ve had “Jam” on repeat both on my iPod and brain for the last day. Maybe it’s the glimpses of spring we keep getting or the skating rink ready synths, but on a scale of 1-10 drinks it ranks a solid 2 before I’d be out on the dance floor making a fool of myself.
