Thanks to the stellar TV series Chance, I've been exposed to these ... I regret nothing

Every now and then I remember how much I listened to this album when I was a teenager. There were certain groups where I think I saw it, but it took a while for me to put two and two together to figure out why I liked the Fugees so much at the time. It's a black immigrant group that messes around with influences from the whole of the diaspora. Like Wyclef is rapping in creole going back and forth between rap and dancehall cadences. Lauryn's singing like she's in church.

It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

Lori, how is that movie by the way? I was thinking of going and seeing it since I'm not trying to drive a half hour out to go see mid90s. Also:

I really enjoyed it.  Lady Gaga can do it all.  The music and acting were great.  Bradley Cooper was totally believable as a fading musician.  The plot was similar to the previous versions of A Star is Born but also had it's own story.

I am not sure how to describe the intricacies of this Hell, so I chose to begin with the most common or prominent theme of Hell, which is uncertainty.

I remember my brother playing this song in his truck, parked outside of my building when I was in college. It was me, him, and my Dominican homie. This drunk white girl got like physically aggravated by the fact that we were speaking in Spanish. Not in that MAGA way where she was just mad at people speaking Spanish in America. I think it just didn't make sense to her seeing three black dudes speaking Spanish because she was pretty lit.

Weird memories, right?

This album reminds me of the fact that the whole East Coast West Coast thing was always kind of nonsense. Buckshot was working on an album with Pac before he died. And not an insignificant number of fools were robbed and/or beat up in South LA to this album.

Also, this was one that was perfect for me as a dumb kid that was pretty regularly interacting with law enforcement from a pre teen on.

And to round this all out. RIP Sean P aka Ruck. I never had the pleasure of meeting the brother, but I've never heard a single negative word said about him. It's weird to miss someone you never met.
