You cop your @RootsPicnic tix yet? June 3rd 2016 the mother of all Picnics celebrates its 10 anniversary w #Pharrell #Solange #LilWayne #21Savage #FatJoe #MobbDeep #Kimbra #Thundercat #DjSpinna #GillesPeterson #PeteRock #MichaelKiwanuka #Khalid & so much more!!!! Hurry!!
w an arsenal of 700+ songs its WAY easy to overlook a gem or two in Prince's songbook. Cleaning/Organizing my HD has me in the W section and ran across #WorkThatFat (had it for like what maybe 10 years?) Just heard it 8 mins ago and IM LAUGHIN MY ARSE OFF. Like seriously my stomach feels like I did 2000 crunches. #Showgirls used to be my go to term of something so horrid it's classic. But man, I swear if this song EVER saw the light of day as a release id replace it as my a new example. Like this is Dead On It + Bob George + man I can't even continue cause I'm laughing so hard. Easily one of his worst gangsta rap creations. But he is so genius, even his fails are the best fails ever. Like this song WILL be in my Prince top 10. Why? 1) I won't easily forget it no time soon 2) one of his funniest non Morris/Time songs 3) I don't have a good 3, but I'm still listening 30 mins later
