Me'shell NdegéOcello - Plantation Lullabies (1993)



I don't really know if this record fits in to any genre, probaly not. I guess I consider it truly over the top funky hip hop, mixed together with some jazz, r'n'n and maybe a little.. And some of the tracks are catchy enough to be called pop.. So yeay, it's just that kind of record - how could a cross over record like this possibly be any good? Answear, because it wasn't made for the sole purpuss of beeing a crossover hit record for diffrent kinds of fans (like most rap'n'b, reaggae-hip hop and that kind of junk). It's deeper then that. Really.

Haha fuck you thougt I was serious? Nah actually that's probaly just some bullshit thoughts I have trying to explain to myself why I love this record. It's world music, or something, not usally my thing... Who gives a fuck really. It's good it's good right.. This dude who is more or less an expert on black music who which had several times recomended me great music mentioned this as his one of his top 10 favourite albums of all time.. I wasn't sure what to think first, because he wasn't actually talking to me when he said it. I overheard him talking at a party to this feminist left wing girl who was really hot. My guess he was trying to pick her up and he didn't wan't to name his acutal top 10 list of greatest albums since I know that's full of bitch talking and pimp glorification music like Devin The Dude, J-Zone and a couple of swedish artists who's music you don't play when your moms around... What people do to get laid... Anyways I stumbled over this album somewhere a while later and decided to give it a chance, maybe my man wasn't lying to that girl after all.. I'm glad I gave it a listen..

Nuff bullshit. Starts off with a super funky hip hop song.. She proves she's capable of good rapping and singing. Mostly she somehow just simply blowes me away. Topics: politics, feelings, woman power and such. Not what I usally listens to, but I don't mind. I really don't know what to say about this. That's why I filled this text out with some random story (true story). It's simply great. Released on some record company Madonna was involved with. I learnd today it was nominated to get three grammis, so it's not really underground. Only forgotte about. Best tracks are: "If that's your boyfriend" and "Dred Loc". Don't sleep.
