The Big Fundamental...

Mini update...

Questlove is on some whole different shit.

I never questioned the dude's musical intelligence.

I've always read how deep he goes in the crates & how his knowledge expands across genres as well as decades.

We've all witnessed the magic the Roots have created over the years with Quest being the leader while in the background.

But let me count down the previous for works of his that we've posted that just crushed everything else out.

The Philadelphia Experiement from the other day.

Questlove Sample Lesson Mix

Questlove - Babies Making Babies

And now, the second installment of Babies Making Babies.

It's not neccessarily that all of these songs are obscure or rare.

It's the way Mr. ? places & matches them that gives them a harmonious flow.

With a mix of blues, old school R&B, some dusty soul classics and smidgen of funk, he's done it again...I'll think I'll dub him the Tim Duncan of this dj shit because he puts up solid work each time out. No glamour, no glitz. Just solid fucking work that old & young can appreciate.

?Love - Babies Making Babies 2

Wanna hear arguably Mary J. Blige's best work?

The beat selection on My Life is superb and the songwriting matches it. This was right around the time Mary was starting to grow up and shake some of the demons that had haunted her early in her career. The pain & the struggle combined with the sheer happiness of an epiphany and learning that her life had so much to offer so many. Mary shines and takes her place on the throne as the queen with this album.
