Here is what I'm listening to right now.
I have a confession to make, I have a bit of a rapper crush on Big K.R.I.T. which is rare for me. I don't just hand out crushes like that so he should be honored ; ) Anyway, I like k.r.i.t. (king remembered in time) because he reminds me of home. His voice and words are familiar to me. His music is soulful, very southern, and although he's 25, he's very very wise. I'm looking forward to the release of his debut album Live from the Underground, due out in June, but for now I'll enjoy the latest release of his mixtape 4evaNaDay.
I've loved Estelle since the first time I heard her music. A couple of my favorites songs from her latest album- All of Me is All Day Long (blue skies), Cold Crush and Fall in Love feat. John Legend.
p.s. Theresa, Estelle has a song with Janelle Monae on this album called Do My Thing, I know how much you love Janelle Monae : )
Black Radio by Robert Glasper is a Jazz musician but he's got a great line up of singers & rappers accompanying him on this album such as Erykah Badu, Mos Def, & Lupe Fiasco to name a few. I'm really loving this album right now. It's the perfect music for creativity. What genre of music gets you going?
