Everyone should listen to more...

Rick James.  Period.   No joke.  Mocked by the young, misunderstood by the old, the late Rick James has left a legacy that is more his image than his music.  Thanks to some key guidance from my man MC Bob I had a chance to reevaluate my previously shallow misconceptions about a man who should be recognized for nothing but his truly funky music.  I dont care who you are, where youre from, or what genre of sounds you like to groove by, this is transcendent music.  It may not be positive, and it might not be philosophical, but it is definitely genuine, and certainly upbeat, and somehow that combination of energy and honesty meld into a jam of triumphant proportions.  And this holds true for all his jams (except that one with eddie murphy).

Weve seen that there are an infinite amount of ways to appreciate music, and what makes you like a song can be different for every person.  So do yourself a favor and revel in a little bit of Rick James, for whatever reason you choose.  There is something we can all learn from such a unique spirit, whether you take it seriously or not, anything that genuine and unceremoniously honest is a beautiful thing.  So do yourselves a favor and listen to more Rick James.  And watch this..
