I was at the Greensboro Badu concert and Musiq live is way better than Musiq's cd. I like most of the cuts on the cd but it seemed a li'more r&b-ish than soulful if that makes any sense. Musiq live is packed wit soul. I never got to see Stevie or Marvin perform, but Musiq says he is following in their footsteps and I think he is doing a good job of it in his performance. He can only get betta workin wit Quest, but dont sleep Jazzy Jeff's camp did a good job on the cd.
