    i've always had a strange fascination with black music from the UK... i cheese out to Terence Trent D'Arby and Central line's - walking into sunshine... and yes even in high school. the boy was on that Seven Days hard. Craig David set the mood for many make out sessions....

    in college i went to war with the bottle and found myself listening to Tricky even Portishead... i also found Omar the quintesential soulquarian before the likes of d'angelo, common, jill scott and all dem.

    and then for sometime it was GRIME... do you remember when grime was supposed to take over the world? when the gritty east coast rap loving community would cross over the atlantic and take there accent having bredrin to heart. like Dizzee Rascal... (ghanna stand up) Oxide & Neutrino(almost as homo as Game in the G-Unit videos with the S&M masks), So Solid Crew(they had the most gangsta persian dude in the game) and that boy who ate all the fucken pies...
