>But its obvious that artists nowadays dont <BR>>mind compromising the quality of an <BR>>album for higher sales... <P>If you read ?uestlove's interview on D's page and/or any other interviews you hear about the making of that album, you would know that the foul-mouthed ish you hear in that song was put there for reasons other than simply to boost record sales. He put it there because it made sense to him! I mean, the damn thing took 100 years to come up with, and it seems that each song was painstakingly gone over to find the perfect blend of sounds and rhythms . . . so for whatever reason, D thought that Left & Right needed that ish right where it was. If he didn't want it there, it wouldn't be there/<P>Personally, I don't much like the rapping on that joint either, but I respect D's creative integrity for putting it out there. If it bothers you so much, I suggest just vibin' off the amazing drum track on that song.<P><BR>love and respect,<BR>El Rey<P>"I prefer to speak of the impossible, because we already know too much about what is possible" Silvio Rodriguez<P>"If our profanity offends you, look around you and see how destructively society is profaning itself.
