23381, if you start me up (c) Rolling Stones

Is she God? I mean if I were to choose a "modern" innovator, creator of music, I wouldn't choose her. Why? Because IMO, she "recycles" "alot" of her music. I believe that the majority of her fans are too young to realize where her music came from. Nothing wrong with recycling, all musicians do it. But cats were behaving as if she were stevie, no? DON'T GET ME WRONG! I love her music, alot! But in all actuality she did nothing too different than what Mary J has done, singing over hip hop beats, using old school melodies in a new school way. I repeat, ain't nothing wrong with that. But until I hear an Innervisions, Off the Wall, from Miss Lady, I will remain unfazed/unamazed by her "innovation".

I would also like to add, that her creations aren't always (60%) created by her solely, like her album, her label, her, would lead you to believe, so don't be bamboozled children. Hey if I could sell 5 million albums and get a billion grammies, I would do it. But i would give credit where that motherfuckers due. God, karma and love are gonna get you (c) krs.

Does this post sound bitter? Prolly. Do I care? No.

a poem 4 fire - recited by jamal, ya'll

I learned the contours of her body much like a familiar street corner....
So nevermind........
Entering the local bodega frequently, often forgetting why I was "coming"....
The door loosened..ajar with wind-blown emotions that never seem to stay long enough...
I remain devoted to exiting sites fo carelessly cramped shelves...
Becoming a consumer unlike myself rooted in wastefulness....
My love for her in high-priced pools of lust would reflect...
My new intent is bargain hunting for intellect.....
