Make way for the S-O-V

If you're not doing anything Sunday, shit even if you are doing something on Sunday, get your ass down to Central Park. I have a half written post that I've been meaning to post forever, the subject being the lovely Ms. Jean Grae, and I've just been sitting on it and not finishing it, I'm not sure why. Anyways, I bring this up because her and Pete Rock are supporting Sov at Summerstage on Sunday. Sovereign is on at 5:30, but the day starts at 4:00.

"Dogs of War" feat. Raekwon the Chef, Cappadonna, Sun God, and Trife Da God by Ghostface Killah (Produced by Pete Rock)

The guitar on this track is ridiculous. It's really cool too how they pull the vocals out at certain points, it really catches your ear when you're expecting them to say it. Such a good job on this one, Mr. Rock.

"Code Red - The Yakuza" by Jean Grae

I totally slept on Jean Grae for so long and I really can't even tell you why. Talib is down with her, that should be reason enough for me right there. I'll admit I don't know a whole lot about her, but I'm really excited that she's finally on my radar.

"Fit But You Know It" Remix feat. some cool people but right now we're focusing on Lady Sovereign by the Streets

I think her verse on this song is better than most of her own work, if not all of it. I really want to like Lady Sovereign, and I do, but the biggest problem with her is that she writes songs about stupid things. I really don't need commentary on fake tanning and shit in my music. It's just not that necessary. I did see her live though, and she really did well. I'm excited to see her again.

see you there.
