Talib Kweli – Come Here

As many people know I’m a fan of Talib Kweli‘s music. It is true hip hop in my opinion and very seldom will it ever be commercial. This song is no different as it will never be as popular as songs speaking about wanting big booty hoes as birthday gifts or being happy as long as his bitches love him (currently SMH at what hip hop has become in some circles). Yet, it will definitely be something that I know I could spin on my turntables and give most women out there a feeling of pride from a man speaking to them like the queens they are. It is rare in this day and time that you can find hip hop talking about women in a positive and respectful sense. On Come Here, it is quite evident from the beginning that this MC is paying the woman compliment after compliment, and I will celebrate this notion over misogyny and blatant sexism any day. Throw in some Miguel and I believe you have an even better hit.

Now some people will say I may be giving it more praise than it deserves, and to that I say possibly they are right. Yet, if I ask you to name me 5 hip hop songs about women that are degrading and overly sexual, and at the same time name me 3 songs from the same genre that are respectful and complimentary I’m more than sure the 5 songs will come well before the 3. Not to mention the lyrics of the 3 are usually far from the simple utterances and, if not listened to closely, will pass by faster than a 100 meter dash at the Olympics. I won’t even start about the innuendos that come repeatedly during the verses…pure poetry.  Bottom line, I like the overall song and its message being a flattering one towards women. Take a listen below and let me know if you agree.

D’Angelo and The Vanguard – Ain’t That Easy

Although it’s taken me a while to actually sit and listen to this album I was pleasantly surprised when I hit play that the first track seemed to be the best track. That’s not taking anything away from the other songs on the album Black Messiah, but this particular song seemed to resonate the most with me. Maybe it’s because of the funky groove set forth at the beginning, or perhaps it’s D’Angelo and the smooth delivery of neo soul he brings to it. Whatever it is, I like it. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. So I think it’s worth a listen, or two, or three. Check it out below and thanks for stopping by 3GW.
