OK one more post inspired from my time in DC hanging out with my friend Stuart, then I’ll try n get into the much more daunting task of tackling the New York rap scene now that I’ve arrived there. Me and Stuart went record shopping a couple days ago at this real cool spot in Maryland and I found some real sweet stuff (including the Bill Withers LP that has the song that this Rap Journey is centered around), and after we spent some time listening to a Quincy Jones album I picked up, he pulled out this other album of his that I almost bought too, but passed up for some reason. Now I’m kicking myself.
Quincy Jones – One Hundred Ways (feat. James Ingram)
If you don’t think I’m an idiot yet for putting this album back on the shelf, you will after you hear this.
MF Doom – Rhymes Like Dimes (feat. DJ Cucumber Slice)
