Friday

Friday Focus: Things to check out this weekend

Movie Rental: Derailed – I loved it. It was a lot better than I thought it would be. I hate to say it, but when I saw Xzibit on the cover, I was thinking, FLOP – I was so wrong.



Music – Kanye’s new album is nice (could have been better if he dug deeper than settling on some of the cuss words he chose for lines), but whatever. What I’m really feeling is Common’s new joint. I know Ced tried to tell me, but now I know first hand. Common is doing the doggone thang. Made me think I was listening to some vintage EPMD on the track with Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas, then he slid old D'Angelo in there on me, but some of his samples were what made the joint. The Gill Scott Heron and Nina Simone samples. Words don't do it. So, if you like smooth rhythms and beats, a hint of acid jazz and tight lyrics, then do yourself a favor and pick it up.

Finding Forever is definitely the joint. Common came with it on this album.

I'll have to check out that movie. If you get a chance, check out the singer Ledisi. She has a good CD. She reminds me of Erykah Badu/Jill Scott

I ♥ me some Common. One of the very few rappers that speak when they spit. He's also proven that quality will surpass quantity, he's been around for a while. And I guess I'll have to check derailed, I didn't even see that my boyfriend from Cali was in it (Xzibit):)
