The Foreign Exchange & ?uestlove Give Prince the Flowers While He Can Still Smell ‘Em

prince

It’s funny because the day that we lost Michael, I was on my way to Pennsylvania with the fam for a little rest and relaxation. Obviously, with the kids in the car, I can’t bump any bang-bang-shoot-em-up-nigga-die-slow type of shit (or any Drake), so one of the albums I was listening to was one of the Prince greatest hits joints. The kids weren’t really ready for it, so I threw on some MJ thinking it’d be more their speed, and it was. A couple hours later I learned that we’d lost the King. As we’ve seen time and time again, great men and women are often taken before their time. With that in mind, ?uesto recently linked with Phonte, Nicolay, Zo! and Carlitta Durand for this tribute to The Kid with a flip of “Take Me With You”. Now let’s just hope he doesn’t C&D them.

    I’m calling this shit right now…

    Cudi’s album is gonna shit on Drake’s. Cudi is gonna be a superstar by years end, trust.

    ^ I can’t refute that but I can’t co-sign it either. It just seems that Drake will cater to the ladies. Kid Cudi on the other hand, has potential to make great music period. Not to mention that he has Kanye behind him (PAWSE).

    ^ thats just a beat nigga with paper that has nothing better to do, so he’ll say some controversal shit, to try get laughs from the common folk, so he can feel good about himself, cause he is truely lonely and not happy.

  12. dominica Says:

    Prince couldn’t come out in today’s climate
    labels would be too afraid to release his shit
    cuz he dresses too gay
    and that’s why the record industry is failing
    they try to package cats
    instead of allowing good music to come through

    Prince is in bad shape physically though..I think they say he needs a hip replacement.

    Niggas with guitars get all the pussy though..subconsciously women be thinking its an extension of your dick. If you play drums women think you can bang hard, and so forth and so forth.

    Prince is the greatest musician of all time. The man plays 23 instruments, produces, arranges, composes, all his stuff and writes for so many people. He sings and dances just as good as MJ and can play any genre of music. BEAT THAT!

    Shawty Redd flipped Prince’s Baby Baby Baby in 2006 and had TI’s homie Big Kountry on there wit Pastor Troy and Dat Nigga Daz.

    THE BEAT WAS SO HARD!!!!

    Shawty Redd need to do beats for a NY Emcee….
