Thats a hard one to nail down - Popcorn, Grits - where is the organix love?
I also would have to have some of the cuts off the Homegrown album - ie: The Seed with Martin Luther over Cody Chestnutt....
I would remove Break You Off - not my favorite but I don't dislike the song - I actually love when the beat changes in that song..... Also Don't say nothing is not on my essential list.....Unless my list could go on forever........
What about more off the new album? I wlll not aplogize or I can't help it - or even Rising Down -
Oh - WHAT THEY DO!!!!! Duh! I was missing that one.....that is in my top 5.
