I love this song so much right now.
the lyrics are above and beyond the greatest I've heard it awhile. I love the fantasy that he created.
even though I love the whole song the chorus and this verse really makes me laugh
You would never know
If you could ever be
If you never try
You would never see
Stayed in africa
We ain't never leave
So there were no slaves in our history
Were no slave ships, were no misery, call me crazy, or isn't he
See I fell asleep and I had a dream, it was all black everything
Uh, and it ain't no projects
Keepin it real is not an understood concept
Yea, complexions not a contest
Cuz racism has no context
Hip-hop ain't got a section called conscious
Everybody rappin like crack never happened
Crips never occurred nor bloods to attack them
Matter a fact no hood to attack in
Somalia is a great place to relax in
Fred Astaire was the first to do a backspin
The rat pack was cool group of black men
That inspired the five white guys called the jacksons
Eminem fitted in but then again he inspired a black rapper tryin to mimic him
And thats a really rose up out of michigan, the sign of white rapper by the name of 50 cent
Fame, fortune, power, titties. People say these are the most crucial things in life, but you can have a pocket full o' gold and it doesn't mean sh*t if you don't have someone to share that gold with. Seems simple. Yet it's an important lesson to learn. Even lone wolves run in packs sometimes.

Yes! One of his best in my opinion. And one of the few where he proves that he can actually sing .
Listening to Me First and the Gimme Gimmies myself.
If no one was sleeping right now the sound level would be way way WAY higher.

I've been in the mood for some Jeff Buckley lately. I've taken to listening to alot of laid back music with strong vocals lately. I think this fits the bill!
