CELEBRATING 80'S MUSIC!
Because I have been overloaded with music for the majority of my life, it has become pretty challenging for me to get my excitement level high for the average releases. There are exceptions though, and this upcoming Zo! & Phonte "Love The 80's" project is one of them. I am a fan of both Zo! (my Detroit brother) and Phonte (one of my favorite emcees in the game), plus I digs me some 80's pop and rock music! This is a big win-win for me! I know that may be hard to believe since I traditionally keep it soulfully blissful around these parts, but please don't get it confused. I would have no problem pulling out some Hall & Oates on that azz quick, fast and in no real hurry, so take me serious once you stop laughing. Due to great marketing tactics the track listing for this project has been kept somewhat under wraps. This makes the internet buzz even bigger, which should help those 2,500 limit CD copies to move pretty quick when it officially drops on July 8th! These are the kinds of projects that music needs to keep it interesting and vibrant. As stated by Phonte...don't take this project for a joke. This is a serious project with quality vocals and production. I know it's hard to believe that when you put eyes on the album cover, right? Can somebody say "You've got that SOUL GLO!" Let me quit, because I know some of you are dripping Jeri Curl juice on your computer keyboard as you read this...

If you haven't already (which I don't know why you haven't), download my Phontigallo's Phavorites Mixx that I did back in 2007, and hear a few of the tracks that will be on this project.

Then put eyes on this...

I hate it. How often people complain when they hear another cover version of an old song.. I really would have expected more from Zo & Phonte. I would be TOO ashamed to play this in public!

@Anonymous - It probably won't be that bad.
