Links of the Day

A lot of good musical stuff going on today:

First and foremost, the new Common CD, Finding Forever, is streaming at VH1 (see? it is good for something!) So far, i'm loving it. It's very mellow, which is what i expected.

Also, check out the new Kanye video starring, who else, Zach Galifinakis. Say what you will about Kanye, he loves having fun with his videos. I'll give him that. (Man i hope this new CD is good...)

Blender has put together a list -- with accompanying youtube videos!! -- of the "wackiest cover songs on the web." It's an amusing, if not incomplete, list. Good material for a friday.

Ok, here's my Top 5 list of Hip Hop Albums. Thanks to Kevo for getting this started:
5. Jurassic 5 - Quality Control
4. Dr. Dre - Chronic 2001
3. Talib Kweli - Quality
2. Fugees - The Score
1. Mos Def - Black on Both Sides

I am so suprised about Quality. You have to help me out, I think Kweli is amazung, I just don't get how that makes it.

"How does Quality make it?" How does Quality not make it?
If the rest of the album absolutely sucked, "Get By" on its own would be enough to get in the top 5...but the rest of the album doesn't suck. Guerilla Monsoon Rap, Put It In The Air...all good songs. The only song i don't like is Waiting for The DJ, and that isn't even that bad.
