Heavy Soul, Lite Syrup....

“Women, if the soul of the nation is to be saved, I believe that you must become its soul.” Coretta Scott King

A month or so ago, I was going to make a post, clowning & speaking on females, exploits and all the testerone induced music that matches such thoughts.

Then Dally checked me by saying something as simple as "Sorry but I won't take part in that one. I have a wife and a daughter."

Needless to say, he made me think before putting those words out there but I still wanted to do something directed at women....however I decided to spin it positively.

I've spoken my piece about previous relationships & encounters before and I'm not shy about discussing any of it. It's those things, good & bad, that make me the charismatic mofo I am today lol.

Let me show respect where it's due, in musical form.

I'd like to give you something...we'll call it "Heavy Soul, Lite Syrup"

See, at age eighteen, my homie Shawn dropped a gem on me that I've stuck with ever since.

He was like "son you still hittin them hoes & runnin. I'm laying up with these broads, eating breakfeast the next day."

Now, Shawn was as street as they came and I put that on everything I love.

So to hear him say that, it put things into an interesting perspective for my impressionable young mind.

Some people of the opposite sex are straight Beat, skeet, bounce.

There are some though, they hold a special spot & you should treat'em that way, inside and outside of the bedroom.

This is one for the ones with whom you need to show your sensual side.

It's not a not a "knock boots" soundtrack.

At the same time, it's not a sappy "ooh baby I love you" that'll make a chick wanna hurry up, get dressed and get the fuck up out because you on some sucker for love shit.

It's more of a mid-tempo, balanced, straightforward compilation of what I think are the "best love songs of all time to cut to without sounding neither too afront & rugged nor too soft".

Some random shots still on the subject...

Is it possible to use the word "bitch" and put a positive spin on it?

Only if you're good with yours and spawn food for thought like these two.

Jeru The Damaja - "Da Bitchez"

Jay-z - "Bitches & Sisters"

I stumbled upon these two last night & I loved them immediately. The husband and wife team of Kindred Family Soul doing two beautiful songs showing the true dymanics of love, relationship and marriage.

"Woman First"

"Let It Go"

And somebody close hit me off with this track & gave my day a special shine even on a cloudy day in the city. Some people just have that uncanny ability to reach out your hand & end up touching your heart & mind in the process.

Hall & Oates - "Sara Smile"

We didn't forget you usual dose of hip-hop; look below.

Little Brother's Gangsta Grillz dropped & I know some cats are beasting for that. T.I.'s out but it's only a webrip so I'm passing on that for at least another day or so til I can't take it anymore lol.

Don't trip. We about to get back on our grizzly with this rap shit. For now though, enjoy.
