In reading about the origins of the album I came across Boyoyo Boys, who are from a township in South Africa. It is said that Paul Simon got the inspriation for Graceland (which features South African music heavily) while listening to one of their records. I can see why – this is great.
Nice, mellow track from the late, great Detroit legend J.Dilla. I have been listening to a lot of his music recently after hearing Common give him a shout out on this interesting ode to music by Washington, DC rapper Wale.
