I was going to say I am a hater of rap music, but that’s not really true. I like some of the stuff Prince did in “Diamonds and Pearls,” but otherwise, I haven’t been exposed to too much of it.
Fell asleep Friday night with the TV on and woke up just in time to catch Outkast perform on Letterman. Pretty good stuff! I wrote down their name so I would remember it and fell back asleep. Checked out Amazon.com and they had their latest album featured at a g reat price, but I hesitated as I wasn’t sure. Also trying to get the credit cards sown and I’m sure to use them on vacation in a couple of weeks.
Anyway, I was in Target today and they offered the CD at a price comporable to Amazon’s after including shipping, so I got it.
Scanned a bit of “The Love Below” and pretty much liked it right away. The song performed on Letterman was “Hey Ya!”
Listening to “Speakerboxxx” right now. I was worried that I wouldn’t like it as well as it was described as more mainstream rap. But I’m surprised at how much I do like it so far. It’s not just people shouting but actually sounds like music.
Mid-life crisis already? Just turned 44 a week ago today and now I’m listening to rap. (Guess I can’t buy a red convertible as I did that when I turned 30.)
