I don't listen to a lot of rap but my favs are Biggie (Ready to Die vs Life After Death, idk) and Jigga (Blue Print vs Black Album, idk)

Task Complete.


  1. Tweet, Erykah and Lauryn Hill... yes yes yes!

    DSo glad we are getting albums from both Tweet and Erykah before the end of the year.

    And I keep praying for a new Lauryn album to come into fruition.

  2. I'm going to have to get up on a few of these. I've never been one to listen to Gospel music however.

    Tweet's song "Beautiful" hold a special place in my heart. When SA & Shonda got married she asked me to find a song that her sister Alicia could sing at the wedding. I had listened to the song before but passed it off as just a song you could cut too. I listened to it again, heard the words and was like wow. Needless to say I recommended the song and Alica sang her heart out at the wedding it was a beautiful moment.

    "Nothing Even Matters" is timeless.

    I like E. Badu but I'm not familiar with that song.

    Chrisette & Corrine are Ok but not really my cup of tea, but I will give those cuts a listen.
