cop that ‘ish! ’nuff said.
Grab his debut CD—Later That Day. Artist from the Bay…very creative hip-hop album filled w/ influences of Funk, Soul and R&B. This is an artist to be supported, so go “buy” it. It was officially release long ago (i.e. October 7, 2003) but re-invigorated recently through his poppin’ live shows.
Here’s something from giantpeach.com:
Lyrics Born’s debut album! Includes the “Callin Out,” “Bad Dreams,” and “Do That There.” Featuring The Gift of Gab, Lateef the Truthspeaker, Joyo Velarde, Tommy Guerrero, The Poets of Rhythm, and Cut Chemist of Jurassic 5!
Maaaan, this guy amazes the heck out of me! How ’bout you?!
Yes yes… one of the best producers alive, as well as someone who brings more to this positive element people call “hip-hop”… Kanye West, has just dropped his “official” debut cd College Dropout.

All-in-all, this album is something different. Made myself listen to it, as well as analyze the damn song (lyrics and beats). I can truly say beats, rhyme, and reason—hands down, one of the best hiphop (solo-artist) debut CD I ever bought and enjoyed in a while (maybe even since wyclef’s Carnival). As he said on MTV, VH1, and BET… go download it wherever/however you can—and if you like it, support…buy it! I guarantee that you will.
Well, got some R&R this past weekend. Went on somewhat of a shopping spree considering I haven’t bought anything for myself except for a couple of shoes and a old navy pant this past year. Anyways, finally upgrading my computer—this baby should be able to rock steady with the new graphic/digital design tools I’ma about to get my hands on.
