    A recent one for me. I have a lot of music on at work usually via Spotify. I was going down a 70s soul/funk/jazz rabbit hole and came across this album called Tailor-Made by Bobbi Humphrey - and it blew me away. I'm not sure what purists with extensive knowledge of the period would think of it, and I don't know how it fits in with similar music from similar artists, but all I know is it was lush, pretty straight funk/soul, not an area I have an intimate knowledge of.  Yes, I want to hear more.


    She's incredible, you need to listen to her Blue Note albums all written and produced by the legendary Mizell Brothers.

    I'm biased as I could listen to Freddie all day, but he raps circles around Pusha and Killer Mike on this. They are two really phoned in guest appearances, which is a shame as the Yasiin Bey and Black Thought track is brilliantly executed on basically every level. For me it's the only real duff moment on it – and it's doubly a pity as Palmolive is a great production.


    With regards to the lyrical content, I could be tempted to agree, but it's obviously all an act. The dude is on a Riesling appreciation tour with Madlib and Egon at the moment, not slinging crack. Possibly a thin excuse, but he's pretty self aware all things considered. I dunno, I think of an alternative world where he's not rapping about this stuff and I'm not sure I'd want to listen to it.


    Good to see you posting again Art, hope all is well!

    I'd been avoiding the last couple of preview tracks so I can enjoy as much as possible fresh with the LP.. Which I've just found out doesn't come out until the 26th of July :facepalm:


    I'm gonna stay strong.


    I'm right with you man, its going to be tough but we can do it.
