Dru Hill Inside and Out (The dirt,reality show, updates, 2010 album review/preview)

“Oh yeah I remember Dru Hill.” “Damn Dru Hill is back?!” “Dru Hill were the shit!” “What in the world happened to them.” Your thoughts were something like that right?

Those were just a few thoughts that crossed my mind when I did a little research on the group and I’m sure some crossed yours as well huh? So to answer those thoughts… yes they’re back. The new album is entitled “InDRUpendence Day” which is set to be released July 27th 2010. Yes they were the shit cause “Tell Me What You Want, 5 Steps, Sleeping in My Bed, and These Are the Times” were my cuts! I remember the Musketeer/ Man in the Iron Mask themed video like it was yesterday! lol Great video’s to the single’s.

So what in the world happened to Dru Hill? Wellllll let me break it down for ya…

Dru Hill Break Down (past present and future)

  • Founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1992
  • In early 1996 Dru Hill (Jazz, Sisqo, Woody, Nokio) signed to Island Records.
  • Dropped they’re first self titled album shortly after in November which went gold.
  • Between 1996 and 1998 the group did 2 monster sound track singles. (Soulfood- Were Not Making Love No More and How to be a Player- Bad Mamma Jamma)
  • In 1998 the group dropped they’re second album Dru World Order which went double platinum and had the hit single How Deep is Your Love off the Rush Hour soundtrack
  • In April of 1999 during the music video shoot of Wild Wild West member Woody quit feeling a need to return to his gospel roots
  • Between 1999 and 2000 each member put out a solo album. Sisqo who went pop who blew the hell up with his “Thong Song” and other singles, Jazz a traditional R&B/soul album, Nokio a hip hop album, and Woody a gospel album.
  • In November 2000 all 4 members got back together and added a random 5th who I don’t even remember named “Scola” to work on they’re 3rd album entitled “Dru World Order.”
  • Dru World order was released in 2 years later in 2002 because of old beef with the group and bad chemistry in which Siqo put out his second album “Return of the Dragon” which didn’t do so good along with Dru World Order….SHOCKER!
  • In 2008 the 4 original member’s ditched the Scola because having a 5th member was messing with they’re money as they say and began a reunion tour with Tony! Toni! Tone!, Bel Biv Devoe and Keith Sweat.
  • Then on March 6, the group appeared on WERQ, a Baltimore radio station, to promote their reunion live on air and this happened..

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4toUG-tZItU

  • The group held a contest in their native Baltimore for a replacement for Woody, settling upon a new singer, Antwuan “Tao” Simpson.
  • To boost the “New Dru Hill” Keith Sweat come up with the very unoriginal idea to put the members in a mansion to live together and film every moment of they’re trial’s and tribulations to gaining stardom again. I saw a few commercials for this on BET a while back but apparently BET dropped the show and some random channel called Centric that I never even heard of picked it up. The first episode aired on June 28th 2010 which I watch online a few minutes ago here… Keith Sweats Platinum House

The reality tv series has a very low budget scripted feel to it. Especially when Keith Sweat is sitting in his chair setting up the scene’s. I’d honestly prefer him to “whine” a song as much as that hurts me to say. lol The new member Tao says that he’s brings a new young energy to the group but by the look of him he’s seem to look the oldest out of them all in my mind. Jazz gained a ton of extra pounds but still can sing all of the ass he gained off. Sisqo looks like an out of shape woman. Nokio out of all the member still looks the same and seems to be in great shape. Big ups to him for still keeping it together.

Now onto the album review. InDRUpendence Day.

1. Shut It Down 3:51
2. Do It Again 3:40
3. She Wants Me 4:04
4. Whatcha Do 3:47
5. Below Zero 4:09
6. Cant Stop 3:39
7. Remain Silent 3:48
8. Makin Luv 4:27
9. State Of Emergency 3:43
10. Back To The Future 3:50
11. Love MD 4:06
12. Away 4:45
13. Rule The World 4:14
14. Bonus Track 1:31
15. Bonus Track 1:36
16. Bonus Track 1:33

I’m diggin the album cover. Nokio’s hair style is pretty dope and out there. Jazz seems to have slimmed down since the recording of the show. Sisqo looks more like a man with some facial hair and the hat on and Tao well… he still looks like they’re old manager. lol As for the album I seriously had high hopes for it with all the dope tracks they’ve hit us with but unfortunately the album is boo boo yall. Horrible production. Not a solid single for the radio which is probably why none of us have heard one. No quality ballad. Bad quality and lyrics. And they had the nerve to remake “Rule the World” and rap on it after Dwele murdered that remix! And on top of all this auto tune is very evident through out the album and T Pain isn’t a feature yall! The bonus tracks shouldn’t even be on there. #14 is some random “carni rock track” #15 is a rock remix of “How Deep” Jazz’s vocals are the highlight of this whole album. My suggestion to him is work on a quality solo album cause there’s a big spot open for that Big Teddy Bear tpye of singer with a strong voice right now. With the lack of promo for this album and whats on it I doubt it is successful at all.

Here’s a few of the singles and one that I thought was decent…

Fresh from the Fridge: Estelle- #ialmostmadeamixtape (mixtape)

No your eye’s aren’t deceiving you. This is actually a mixtape made by Grammy award winning UK singer Estelle. With a cool Twitter inspired title Estelle hit’s you with a little bit of everything on this one from unreleased freestyles, remixes, and of course some new material that will more then likely be featured on her 3rd studio album“All of Me.” Throughout the album Estelle showcases her known vocalage and some what unknown rap skills which are actually very decent. She defiantly get’s her point across that she can bring much more to the table then her hit single “American Boy,” which is what her album title album “All of Me” revolves around that pretty much going to give every aspect of her talent to her fan not just what she’s known for.

Fresh from the Fridge: Robin Thicke- My Life (single)

If your wondering why there’s a “Despicable Me” picture here it’s because they’re soundtrack actually has this Robin Thicke single on it. lol I was shocked when I heard the new’s too but apparently Pharrel is credited as a music producer and co-creator of the official music score for the upcoming animated Summer film which was another shocker to me. lol

Though it’s hard to try and find the relationship between this track and the movie without seeing the it, it’s a hot track none the less. With a dope beat produced by The Neptune’s of course and a very feel good vibe too it with a nice beat switch through out the song this is def a track to download and add to you Robin Thicke collection. For those that want some more info on the movie here’s the trailer…

DJ Jazzy Jeff/ Michael Jackson- He’s The King, I’m The DJ (Mixtape)

(A taste of the Mixtape)

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHNL-4B4aac

In celebration of the life of Michael Jackson and the year anniversary of his passing I thought I’d show my love by blessing all of my Soulified fam with this masterpiece of a mixtape that the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff mixed and when I say a masterpiece I mean just that!

This album has the perfect formula for a mixtape…No annoying ass DJ shouting out his name, click, and baby mama’s every 5 seconds over the track with the annoying echo effect, the scratching is limited and sounds great, the mixing is flawless, the singles are on point, the artist is on point, with very little sampling to the original tracks. And as you can see by the 49 single track list below Jazz doesn’t sale you short with the MJ hits. You get EVERY Michael Jackson in this one from when he was the tender age of 8 performing with The Jackson 5, his dark, solo, afro years, the light skinned “Jerry Curl” MJ, up to the white version he all left us as. There’s singles on this album that I never even heard of that my mom had to school me on when she over heard me listening to the album and immediately requested I burn her a copy for work. lol Your also going to hear a few familiar sample’s taken by today’s artist like LL Cool J and Ghostface Killer just to name a few.

All around this mixtape is a must have to anyone’s collection and hard to believe it’s “mixtape” and free at that. Just press play, leave that skip button dusty, and enjoy a legend introduce another legends entire life in the form of music.

Corinne Bailey Rae- Closer (video)

Corrine can get as close to me as she wants and I’m not even into bony women. lol OMG she is gorgeous! I’m really diggin this track and the video. She has a very super sexy retro swag on this one reminiscent of Donna Summer Love to Love You Baby single back in the mid 70’s.

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1ogxTJJ-AM

Mad props to her on the live version to. One thing that’s most artist can’t pull off is sounding even better live and Corrine easily does just that. I swear you’d think she was lip signing as clear and crisp as she sounds. True talent right here!!!!

Fonzworth Bently feat Anthony Hamilton- Greener (video)

Here’s the new single/ video from Fonzworth Bently featuring one of my favorite soul artist Anthony Hamilton. At first glance of the title and feature I was expecting this song and video to be super dope as was his first video Everybody featuring Andre 3000, Kanye West, and Sa Ra…

“Everybody”

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4TNZSFPtaw

It saddens me to say this but this single and video is straight garbage. From the location of the video, the wardrobe, production, and hook everything is just horrible. Bently to me has always been a trendsetting cat that has his own style, swag, and persona but in this video it feels like he’s trying way to hard and even posing. Right when I saw the windmills I immediately knew where this video was filmed which is the Cabazon area right off the 10 free on the outskirts of Palm Springs. That’s my hood yall and I can tell you from living there damn there all my life that there is hardly anything GREEN out there and  it gets about 115 degree’s e and dude is straight dancing and rapping in a leather hoody, a velvet jacket with a bow tie, and I don’t even know what that red thing is he rockin. lol This is probably the main reason Anthony Hamilton passed on being in the video. Brotha’s got some damn sense the video doesn’t make any of that.

Ok Bently your out in the desert by the windmill’s wearing clothes that are going to give you a damn heat stroke with no story line and no destination with a few models in courture randomly placed behind you in heels walking in the sand. I swear if I didn’t see this video featured on BET’s 106 and Park I would of thought this was a Dave Chappelle or Saturday Night Live spoof with as cheap and funny it is. lol

El Debarge + BET Awards= One Hell of a Performance

For those that missed the BET Awards I had to hot yall with the El Debarge surprise performance! Dude killed it! I swear I was immediately taken back to one of my favorite movie’s “The Last Dragon” starring Bruce Lee Roy and Show Nuff watching this great performance. What’s funny is right as the light come on and he starts to sing you feel the crowd askin, “Who the hell is this?” Then you slowly start hearing the cheers and applause as they’re being recognized who it was. I swear dude hasn’t aged a bit! And his hair cut was clean as hell. He definitely used a full bottle of Pink Oil Moisturizer that night! hahaha  Enjoy yall…

Dwele-W.ants W.orld W.omen Album Review

I’m going to come out right and just that this album is a straight masterpiece yall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whats super dope about this entire album is how it seamlessly feels like 3 albums in one the way he’s splits each title name (Wants, World, Women) with the interlude first, then the songs that represent that specific title just as his super dope commercial’s did to hype the album. And I guarantee yall wont be skipping over these interludes like know we all usually do because they’re straight up dope! W.ants (1-6) are all about just that…Dwele’s wants in which he hits us with a full dope list in the very first track I Wish. The shocker track of this whoooooooooole album is Dodgin Your Phone featuring David Banner which we all heard a snippet of in his W.ants commercial. It’s a shocker to me because it’s nothing like what I expected from a David Banner track and most of all… Dwele spits on the track! Yes Dwele raps and he does one hell of a f*^%king job at it yall! Had me hella impressed and it comes out of know where when the beat all of sudden switches Timbaland style. I was sitting here looking at the track list features again thinking it was one of the many Detroit rappers that he’s friends with but at the very end of the track Dwele confirms that it is him in his last bar with mucho swag. Mad props to Dwele on this!

W.orld (8-11) are all about the current political situations were dealing with these days. The tracks are very reminiscent of Marvin Gaye’s views with “Whats Going On” especially in How I Deal and My People. My people is probably the one I have on repeat the most on my I Pod touch and I find myself through out the day humming and scatting the melody just like Dwele himself. lol

W.omen (13-18) is self explanatory. Dwele slows it down for us and focus’s on the ladies. I Understand is probably my favorite out of that selection and was one of the song featured in his W.omen commercial. I Wanna featuring Dj Quick was another shocker too me. I’d never expect those two to make a track together or even know each other but it’s very well put together with that classic funky Dj Quick production he’s know for with some witty bar’s to go with it. With that said enjoy the party all weekend long and drink up as much Dwele as you’d like and make sure you support him by going out and buying his now!

Robin Thicke raps now?! Wtf?

Yes you heard it right yall! Mr. Panty Droppin Super Soulful Robin Thicke rapping! You got to hear it to believe it lol. It’s honestly not even rapping to me because he’s on that Juvenille type crap where he say’s “In the Phantom” after every damn sentence with no actual rhyming what so ever. “No hoe’s in the Phantom, So Ho in the Phantom.” lmao! I can’t even be mad at him for trying something new but rapping shouldn’t have been it and The Game needs the s$%t slapped out of him for even letting Robin have the 3rd verse to rap on at 2:22 on the track if you want to speed past The Game’s mediocre lyrics.

This track actually sounds decent as far as the beat which I hear is not even by Dr. Dre but by some cat named DJ Toomp instead. And the singing/ hook isn’t bad by Robin Thicke either. What kills me is that the whole song is about a luxury car that all ready has a million and one song’s written about it prior by a bunch of rapper’s that can’t even afford it. This is one reason on top of many others why I don’t listen to majority of the rap crap being put out right now.

Fresh from the Fridge: Dwele- I Wish



More Dwele heat for your ears and your feet! Today I’m hittin yall with another single off his new album coming out on the 29th of this month entitled “I Wish.”

“I Wish” is a smooth up beat track you can bob your head to and just vibe too. On this one Dwele is keeping it real yet simple with the wishes that he has whether it be personal or political.  One wish in particular that stood out and actually had me laughing little was… “I wish that the Golden Child had a sequel.” hahahahah Couldn’t agree with him more on that one! I loved that movie! Classic Eddie Murphy right there!!!!!!

Fresh from the Fridge- The Roots featuring John Legend- Doin It Again

The baddest band in all the land are back with they’re forthcoming album “How I Got Over” set for release this month on the 22nd. And who better to hire for some smooth soulful vocal’s then the talent of John Legend. Today I’m blessing your ears with one of two feature’s John Legend is featured on entitled “Doin It Again.” If the title and lyrics on the track sound familiar it’s because they’re sampled from John’s “Again” track of his sophomore album “Once Again.”

Before you play this track be warned that it is straight FIYAH!!!!!! I swear it made my eye’s water. The beat is heat, Black Thought’s lyrics are on point as usual and I love how they sampled a live version of “Again” as opposed to the studio version because it flows perfect with the Roots live sound.

Here’s a great live video of spotlight sample I’m talking about…

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtC0rcHkTxE

Fresh From the Fridge-Cee Lo Green- Stray Bullet’s Mixtape

In anticipation of his forthcoming album “The Lady Killer” Cee Lo Green satisfies our hunger by hitting us with this appetizer in the form of a mixtape entitled “Stray Bullets.” Listening to this album Cee Lo Green def show’s us why he cant be put in a genre box because he hits us with ever genre of music with his own crazy twist. I heard funk,  jazz, new soul, vintage soul, rock, hip hop, even alien! lol

Track #2 “You Don’t Shock Me Anymore” is my favorite track off this album. Instant vintage! That’s all I gotta say. This track has a very retro Motown feel too it. I can picture Cee Lo singing this one on the Ed Sullivan Show all suited up. It’s amazing to me how he can birth such a classic sound in the era that we live in today. Big up’s to Cee Lo for this one. If you want to listen outside the box and enjoy something new with a vintage feel that’s very out there this is the album for you.

Fresh from the Fridge: Cee-Lo Green’s “Georgia” and “I Want You” singles

Yes yes yall! More freshness from the fridge from yours truly and this time I’m bringing you 2 exclusive’s from Cee-Lo Green off his new album being released later this year entitled “Lady Killer.” This is a big deal for me being a huge Gnarls Barkley fan and it being 5 years since he last put out a solo album.

According to sources, Cee-Lo will continue to blend and mix the genres of Hip-Hop and Soul on the forthcoming release and it’s very evident with his first single “Georgia” which is pretty much an ode to the place he loves and grew up in a story book detail. After listening to this track Ray Charles would definitely be proud as it is very reminiscent of his version aside from the obvious title but with an up to date, soulful, Gnarls swag to it. And excuse my language but Cee-Lo sings the shit outta this track yall!

The second single “I Want You” is super exclusive and by far my favorite out of the two. I swear I’ve had this track on repeat playing in my Windows Media Player all weekend! So soulful, smooth, and just an all around feel good track. Whoever the woman is that he’s singing about (hopefully his wife lol) in this track has to be one hell of a catch with the meaningful lyrics he wrote up on this one.

Enjoy the freshness and be on the lookout for a few mixtapes I’ll be dropping in the near future.
