R.I.P. (Curtis Mayfield & Grover Washington Jr.)
Every producer on here gotta give up the love to these to cats for bringing us such classic songs as well as classic songs in which 'we' sampled as a rap nation to make classic rap joints.
ElekTro4, you probably heard Curtis Live. I think Stone Junkie is the last or next to last track. I LOVE that album. His band is real hot. I've been a Curtis fan for years now, love the Impressions, love Curtis's political stance...
I'm definitely pouring some out for my man.
Werdemup! Stone Junkie is the funkiest song I've ever heard. Fuck all the nimrods who think curtis mayfield just did the Superfly soundtrack. My man laid it down to the ground baby! One of the dopest performers I've ever heard [not live , just on live records].
Grover washington was dope too. Not close to as dope as Curtis in my book but still highly dope.
curtis will continue to be on the case...
no doubt. we should all pour sumthin out 4 both of em.
Word...I'm deejaying a party Friday and I'll definitely dedicate a couple Curtis songs...Future Shock....and a couple Grover songs, most likely his version of Marvin Gaye Inner City Blues which is dope as hell !!
