Can't Someone Tell 'Em?

I don't want to say much in this post. I don't want to promote this wackness. You guys are free to have your own interpertations of this song, but I wanted to post this to show how pathetic the rap game is now. You have some of the "best" rappers out on a track with the biggest joke of a rapper on the planet. And if you listen to each verse, I think you can actually hear the rappers getting worse by trying to do a song on the level of soulja boy. Besides Jadakiss (who only has an 8 bar verse), this track is pathetic.

Album Review: "Not As Far" -Three Legged Fox

Hailing from the Philly area is Three Legged Fox; with the follow up to their solo debut "Ideas" entitled "No as Far". TLF teamed up with producer Chris DiBeneditto at Philadelphonic Studios who also produces G. Love & Special Sauce and Slightly Stoopid. Guest appearances on the album include OG from Slightly Stoopid, Mark Boyce from G. Love & Special Sauce, Jacob Hemphill from SOJA, and the horn unit from John Brown's Body. Think O.A.R. meets Dispatch with a little bit of Bob Marley thrown in, and you've got the soothing sounds of Three Legged Fox on this album. And with summer right around the corner, this album bleeds feel good reggae notes and blues riffs all sewn together with the vocals of frontman Kyle Wareham.

Personal favorites include the amazing Soul Thief which contains a sick chorus along with great guitar work by lead guitarist Mike Brody. The title track Not As Far lives up to the "a title track has to be hot" idea which I and many music lovers believe should always be true . Another must listen is the bluesy Back Again with emotionally compelling lyrics and from-the-heart singing. They even throw in a touch of Southern Rock/Country with Easy Way sounding like a new age Lynyrd Skynyrd track. The great thing about this album is how they use the instruments as a voice instead of just background noise behind a good vocalist. Even with a talented guitarist in the group they find a balance between both the instruments of Brody and the voice of Wareham.

As a whole, the album is very complete. Feel good tracks, a few deeper emotional songs and plenty of talent show this up and coming band is more than a group of guys with some good connections;they've got skills, and potential. As the title of the album may suggest, though relatively unknown to the mainstream fan, TLF is not as far as it may seem from breaking through into the industry, so don't be suprised if you see them opening up for some of your favorite acts by the end of 2009.

Talent Shows, Priests and Fox's

For those who came out to the show last week I appreciate it. It was a pretty good show overall despite my performance being a little lackluster due to some technical difficulties haha. But yea, I still pulled out third place in the show despite the judges being a priest, professor and heavy metal fan. So i'll take it. My friend Stephanie Walker came in second so I can't complain about not placing higher. I'll post some of her stuff later on this weekend so look out for that.

In other news, you guys may remember I posted a Listen to 'Em section about Three Legged Fox a few weeks ago. The other day their manager hit me up with a nice message telling me how he had came across my review, and gave me a copy of their new album "Not As Far" which just came out. The last two days I've been listening to it non-stop, and tomorrow I plan on posting a review of the album, so check it out and go cop that album! So thanks to "the real JZ" for that, and if anyone else has albums they want me to review, if it's hott, i'll post something about it.

stay tuned,
