Hype for DC Like Shyt!

So... today was one of those "blah- I really don't feel like caring or faking sincerity" days: hence 'My Testimony' below.

Mr. Francis posted this song on his page, but I just didn't feel like being caught up in his DC/Wale hype. His blog is a walking blimp for the DMV (DC, Maryland, VA) area, and I already stated how my mood was. However, here I sit in the tech posting my happy bunny about life and Dom (who has a blog and will be back from hiatus soon- yes, I will be seeing to that personally so check it out) comes over telling me to peep this song. He can also be credited with ending my stimulating conversations drought. Back to the program though, after listening to it-all I can say is, "I couldn't imagine going through it without soul music." Some have it twisted and are fooled into thinking that soul music has to be slow and sensuous. It's soul music if it hits you in the heart. Don't you know nothing?

Anywho, a definite head banger, hit maker, conscious thinker type song is what you're about to experience... and yeah- I just coined the phrase "head banger, hit maker, conscious thinker". Jealous much? Not many songs fall into the category. This song can only be best described by a Wale line... "already great, motherfuck potential." O how I'm aching to change my facebook status to a line from this song, but I just put something new up not too long ago... and yes, that matters to me. I'll just settle for using it to close out this post :)

The Roots ft. Wale & Chrisette Michele - Rising Up

A Legend in the Flesh That Dress to Impress
The Best is That Which I Accept and Nothing Less
My Stats is Grotesque, My Squad is So Fresh...
You Know its-
