Heh. It's funny though, living in the midwest, nobody has
ever greeted me with "howdy" once. Maybe if I lived somewhere
further South like Missouri... nah! :)

Word. I suppose that given what we've seen and heard of
Malik both on and off Okayplayer it might just be best said
he has an "artistic temperament" - many creative people do.
As a fan I'm just glad he's still willing to make music.

My apoplogies if I was redundant. :)

It shows. Highly crafted and finely tuned like a
baller's Impala. Not many rap groups have such great
emcees and I +still+ want to hear the instrumentals
seperately; but The Roots is one of a select few.

Yeah; how did "Edutainment" get five mics anyway?
Don't get me wrong I love the album but even among
BDP's catalogue it's not a high point - it's probably
the most didactic and preachy of all their shit. "Sex
and Violence" shoulda been five mics and "Edutainment"
somewhere around three and a half.. maybe four.
How the fuck did FOABP get three and a half though?
Somebody was +SMOKING+. Same for "Resurrection."

Peace, Flash

PS: Why does dream always get ripped on UrbanExpose?
I never understood why people wanna hate her so bad.
