This album is setting up to be nothing short of incredible.  How I Got Over drops tomorrow, gonna be coppin' this one without thinkin' twice.  I love how these dudes manage to stay legitimate without compromising themselves.  What you waitin' for this summer (no Detox)?

Here's something a little unexpected.  Von Pea and Donwill of Tanya Morgan decided to spit on the entire collection of  "Sandwiches" instrumentals for Late Nite With Jimmy Fallon that ?uestlove put out via Twitter a while back.  "Cheesesteak" is the first of an entire album of tracks they plan on releasing in the near future.  I like this alot!  Some of that moon-roof-all-the-way-open-on-the-expressway-in-summer-at-dusk type music.  What you think?

This would have been a hot show to be at.  Something about a live band recreating the magic of a studio produced track can make a song take a whole different feeling.  Roots should sit down with an MC and re-do their entire album with live instruments.

Supernat is incredible.  Why do I gotta be in Detroit the only city that's not on their tour schedule  I would love to go to the Toronto or Chicago show if someone from Guerilla Union wants to hit us up.  Anyone else going?

Check the poster here.

They're gonna be Conan O'brien's house band when he takes Letterman's spot.  Hope they're getting paid, but I gotta wonder what's happening to the Max Weinbergh 7 and will Black Thought be singing Huey Lewis tunes between breaks?
