music and mood

Filed under: Uncategorized — 2pacfan187 @ 8:57 pm

I find the Back-in-the-day Buffet on my hip-hop station to be much more fun and enjoyable than the morning show, which is heavy rotation of drab top 10 stuff. It puts me in a really good mood to hear ‘pac and Biggie back on the air. Kinda makes me not want to travel in the morning. Or…get an mp3 player? Today they put on Still Dre, and it was fucking tight. “but haters say Dre fell off / How nigga? My last album was ‘The Chronic’ ” Damn. For those unhip to the rap game, The Chronic was about 3 million.

The sad part is though…Still Dre was penned by Jay-Z. If you listen closely, yeah, you have to admit that the voice here is Hova’s and not Dre’s.
Still, I stay close to the heat
And even when I was close to defeat, I rose to my feet
My life’s like a soundtrack I wrote to the beat
Treat my rap like Cali weed, I smoke til I sleep
Wake up in the A.M., compose a beat
I bring the fire til you’re soaking in your seat

Yeah, that’s definitely Jay-Z. My friend said the first time he was in Tim Berners-Lee’s presence, he knew it was him based on a comment Berners-Lee gave on the lecture going on. At some point, people’s character, their soul, seeps through their words.
