I sat down and tried to figure out just what I would say and realized that I’m pretty speechless that this man has departed, much as I have with the others that have left us  He was one of the kings of hip-hop, no doubt, who held his own  He incorporated pop, jazz, funk, and reggae, and did so with ease. Not only was he a musician, but also the head of Uptown Records, after which he delved into acting.  on television, in film, and even off–Broadway.

This, of course, is the focus on his first love: music.  From his first hit, “The Overweight Lover In The House” to his latest album featuring vocals from Anthony Hamilton, the man did it all.  There’s a great list of people here, however, there are some that weren’t mentioned.  Tammy Lucas is the vocalist in “Is It Good To You” and of course, Aaron Hall in “Now That We Found Love.”  The background vocalists on “Peaceful Journey” are K-Ci and JoJo, and Cynthia Johnson is the vocalist on “Gor Me Waiting.”

Much love to Theresa and KB. Got requests? Send an email to ejflavors at gmail dot com. For those who’d like to subscribe to these podcasts, enter this link manually into iTunes. Also, please be sure to check out on GROOVMNT always keepin’ you in the loop. Take it light.
