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