The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

Baby don’t rush this…

…take your time
You and me goin’ be here for a while
I got so much that I want to do
I just want to be close to you
I got so much that I want to do
That I can show you better than I can say…

relax, ease into it…


I love Mos Def. Something about his voice– whether rapping, singing kinda like in this song, or even while acting–does it for me. I haven’t featured a hip hop artist for Freaky Friday in awhile, but this one sure is worthy.

I love the electric guitar. I imagine a dark steamy room, maybe a single light bulb glow. Or better yet a candle. Sandalwood. Hey, I’m a scent person, and I love musky scents.

Let me show you
Let me show you
Let me show you…

as if saying it once wouldn’t convince you, he says it FIVE MORE TIMES and throws in a “I wanna show you” for good measure.

Oh baby, you make me feel so good
Come let me take you by the hand
Oh baby, you make me feel so good…

so yeah. it aint no more to it.

Enough talk and let’s move…

if “The Panties” isn’t on any of your playlists, you might just wanna add that… if you aren’t feeling his voice, cop the instrumental. TRUST ME ON THIS.

Happy Friday and have a good weekend 🙂


Two Words….


Two words, United States, no love, no brakes
Low brow, high stakes, crack smoke, black folks
Big Macs, fat folks, ecstasy capsules
Presidential scandals, everybody MOVE
Two words, Mos Def, K West, hot shit
Calm down, get back, ghetto people, got this
Game ball, lock shit, dump off, cock shit
We won’t stop shit, everybody MOVE

I was just debating classic hip hop albums with a few friends last week after watching JD’s Living the Life vlog about hip hop heavyweights. I won’t get into that discussion because its deep,  its personal, and quite frankly I don’t think I’ll ever agree with most people. LOL. Anybody that  knows me knows how much I stan for Jay Z. He’s my favorite and that doesn’t make him the greatest– no, but he’s one of the best to ever do it. IN MY OPINION. So to me he’s a super heavy weight. But this blog isn’t about him…today, lol. One of my first blog posts was about Biggie and Pac and I kinda don’t want to revisit the topic since it isn’t about them today EITHER!

anyway, folks that commented on the youtube vid were throwing out Kanye as a heavyweight. I think he’s a better producer than lyricist, which is different than artist/entertainer TO ME. As an artist/entertainer he makes hot music…and according to JD’s criteria, one classic album makes you a heavyweight. College Dropout is that classic. I was telling my babe that Two Words was one of my favorite songs on the CD, if not the favorite. so today when I found the video I got excited…had to share. Props to Google Reader because I would have never even known about the site it was posted on if I hadn’t been “browsing for stuff”.

I now have a new site to follow Honey Soul Music.

check the vid: I love me some Mos Def….I truly think he’s one of the best out….and Freeway is crazy too! Well, he used to be.
