One of 1999's best releases. If you're a rocker that's always been a bit afraid of that "rap" stuff, this'll get you on the difficult road to appreciation. And I wouldn't waste anymore time, either. You might be stuck in the past, but you don't wanna get cemented or you'll soon find yourself completely hated by your kids. (And to hard core rap fans, listen, I'm not going to get in a big tiff over this. G. Love's a sensitive guy and so yeah, how's that for legit?) G. Love is a serious pop class musical act, and his rhymes are as intelligent and funny and insightful as any musician could possibly create.
LifeChanging Tracks: 1,2,4,5,6,7,9,12,14
Special Moment Where Lyrics, Melody, and Harmony Fuse: 2. Like your holding the spliff that's laying in your hand Or you dream of playing bands from Electric Lady Land Riffs just like Jimi Hendrix...and...Education's important to make a man complete But everything I learned in school I learned again on the street...and...The force conspires to help brothers That help others open doors...and on and on.
