Limited to what? Read your first statement.

Common - Previous sales track record, underground hits, college radio support for the 6th Sense, HIT single "The Light".

The Roots - Hardest TOURING/working band in hip-hop, previous sales track record, college radio support for "Adrenaline", HIT single "You Got Me".

D'Angelo - "Brown Sugar" (Need I say more)

Jill - New label (How much more of a priority can you be)

Bottom line...the Jazzy's betta go cop a remix. Hell, have Com or BT spit a verse. Do a duet wit D', ask Jill to write them a HOOK (hint hint), just do something besides...nevermind.
