Will, better known as the lefty of In
My Write Mind
, is back at it. Check it.

    I agree with you about Love Jones and Mo Money. Those are still two of my very favorite cd’s. Jam and Lewis always rock the talent. Look what they did for Janet!
    Nice cuts EJ!

  2. nOva says:

    I remember the Sable song. It was one of my faves.

  3. honey says:

    The strange thing…well maybe not so strange, is that a few of these soundtracks were way better than the movie. I’m with you on the Love Jones soundtrack. It takes me about 2 hours to listen to it though because I put the Maxwell joint on repeat, LOL.

  4. Nikki says:

    I pulled out my cd of the Love Jones soundtrack just last week. That was probably one of the most complete soundtracks (besides Saturday Night Fever) that I’ve ever listened to.

  5. Keish says:
