Honestly, I should have just bought Erykah Badu's 'Love of my Life' as a single. And what a wonderful 'single' it is. Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Rashaan Patterson's contributions are nice, though not as fresh sounding as Badu's. But they do make me feel better about purchasing a cd with only one, and I mean 'one', really strong track on it. To be honest, I'm not a fan of rap music. Therefore I cannot offer any unbiased compliments or criticisms of those tracks. I'll simply limit my opinions to wishing this had not been another hybrid hip-hop/neo-soul project.
