"Take A Look At Me Now..."

Say what you will, but when Ja was on, he did his thing with great success.

I was never a real fan of what he did for the "rap crooner" genre but I swear nobody can honestly admit to having not actually sung along to one of his many many radio hits, either mockingly or earnestly.

H-Town's gonna hate me...and I know this is damn near blasphemy to some of you, but go back with me...

Ja Rule - "Down Ass Bitch" feat. Charli Baltimore

Thuggery aside, Goapele's , "Crushed Out" and "Fly Away" have been in absolute constant rotation all weekend...literally. So, to catch this release floating around was a cool find & seems worthy of passing along. While I can't vouch for this one yet because I haven't given it a thorough listen, I know for a fact that Change It All (2005) is worth any time spent listening so I'm expecting to find a few gems on this one.

Goapele - Even Closer (2002)

Seven reasons why Rocafella should not have broken up....

1. "For The Fam"
2. "What We Do"
3. "1-900-Hustla"
4. "Do It Again"
5. "Celebration"

6. "Flipside"

...And because we never got enough Peedi.

7. "Gotta Have It"
