Peter Phillips and Corey Penn

So I was wasting time and money on iTunes last night and I arrived at this conclusion, Pete Rock and CL Smooth's Main Ingredient is one of the greatest Hip-Hop albums that does not get its due. Producers today (commercial and indie) cannot touch Pete's musicianship on that LP. And although I love CL Smooth more than most, you cannot deny his flow.

the title track, 'In the House', 'Worldwide', 'I get Physical' - most outfits still can't touch those.

also got some Steel Pulse tacks last night. Love those. Makes me think about Spring time in souther New Jersey circa '89.

And I need one of these in my crib, fa sheezy. That and someone to serve me my drinks in hot French maid outfit.
and some Common fodder, thanks to Kim:

Common’s already Gold-Selling Getting Out Our Dreams/Geffen Records release, BE quickly approaches Platinum, everyone’s favorite MC debuts a cinematic delight for his newest single, “Testify”, and readies to join the “Touch The Sky” tour.

On the heels of the Kanye West-directed “The Corner” and hit single “Go,” this Box Fresh Pictures production boasts an all-star cast of Common fans, including Bill Duke (“Menace II Society,” “Get Rich Or Die Tryin',” “X-Men 3”), Steve Harris (“The Practice,” “Minority Report”), Wood Harris (“The Wire,” “Remember The Titans,” “Paid In Full”) and Taraji P. Henson (“Hustle & Flow,” “Four Brothers,” “Baby Boy”).

Directed by Anthony Mandler, "Testify," is a rugged, suspense thriller that finds Common spinning the tale of a woman’s emotional plea to testify for her man in court that leaves all listeners with an incredible twist at the end.

Common premiers the video today on MTV’s TRL, tomorrow on BET’s 106 & Park and performs “Testify” on Live w/Regis & Kelly October 7th.
