since the first time i heard this album i knew it was special. throughout my relationship with Songs In The Key Of Life, Fullfilingness First Finale, Innervisions, Talking Book and Hotter Than July (yes in that exact order) i’ve always played this album in the transitions because i just didn’t understand it and was relating more to something else. i liked it, i just didn’t ‘get’ it. well.. now i do
play the whole album with your eyes closed if you have time to.

We actually did songs to like 5-6 of these joints and submitted them to him. it was moreso just me and elucid pulling in the rest of the crew for features. i wonder what happened to those songs. they were pretty good.
i really wanted to make this a long thought out post but imma just blurt this thang on out right fast…
yall gotta stop begging for groups you love to get back together. stop thinking you have so much ownership over a collective of individuals urge to create art together. like im all for a good reunion and shit but nothing.. i repeat NOTHING is worse than a bad reunion.
take it from a dude who is a part of a group that broke up. you can trust me on this subject. its something i know about. as fans yall gotta stop wanting groups to reunite. just because you loved a song that made you feel like something years ago because you were at a place in your life and the music touched you doesn’t mean that today if those same people made a new song it would do the same thing. just enjoy the memory you have, replay the song, hold on to that memory and accept the fact that unless a group makes a time machine to coincide with the release of their new album it won’t be the same if they reunite because YOU’RE not the same.
most of yall don’t really want the group to reunite, you want a time machine and music is amazing but not that amazing. with that said you gotta let the artists who make music grow and trust them to make stuff you will enjoy with or without the group. you can’t expect any person to stay the same person forever just because you want them to stay the same person forever, especially when you used them to grow and change.
