yea seriously The Roots can't mess up in my book, from Illadelph Halflife up to The Tipping Point, I've been a big fan. That would be absolutely crazy to actually see....Kanye+ The Roots. I wonder what the fusion of the best production hip-hop with the best live hip-hop would be??
But yea MC I understand how you can be turned off by the flashiness of many rap stars. What is even more shocking when you find a flashy one that can back it up with substance (a la Jay Z, Kanye (sometimes flashy, but thats just his personality, Outkast, and Dr. Dre...when he still made music
i guess actual lyrics might be perfect here to justify the shine...
For those that think Hov' fingers bling bling'n
Either haven't heard the album or they don't know english
They only know what the single is, and singled that out
to be the meaning of what he is about
And bein I'm about my business, not minglin much
runnin my mouth, that shit kept lingerin
But no dummy, that's the shit I'm sprinklin
The album width to keep the registers ringin
In real life, I'm much more distinguished
I'm like a bloke from London, England
Jeah, you jinglin baby
See I go right back and I bring 'em in baby
Business mind of a Ross Perot, but never lost my soul
