My current joint - Tia

Happy New Year BGLUers. I'm currently fighting the winter blues like a champ. I don't trust anyone who likes winter...I really don't. How can you like a season that causes the sun to go down at 2:47, causes dumb animals to be dumber (I'm looking at you deer that ran into my car and caused $2100 worth of damages) and generates weather that holds you captive in your own home? (I'm currently trapped in my house due to a winter storm that pushed through last night and dumped snow and ice on my "incapable of handling it" town.) If you're one of those folks who prefers winter over other seasons you are on my list of people who I will never fully trust along with....nevermind...I'm only here to entertain and enlighten, not to offend. And I'm sure if I list the categories of people I'll never fully trust I'll just piss someone off. Let's keep it civil in 2011.

Anyway, I'm currently battling the blahs along with some real family issues sprinkled with some 2011 soul searching, so I'm not really feeling all that inspired to write. One would think since I decided to learn more about myself this year I would have more to share...not so much. But as I get to know me better I'm sure there will be some deep, soul-wrenching, "this is probably too personal to share but I'm sharing it anyway" posts. Until them, musical frivolity.

Drake's "Fall For Your Type" is my current favorite song. Notice I said Drake not Jamie Foxx. Don't get me wrong, I like Jamie's take on the song. And for some reason the girl in his video is so funny to me. I know she's only acting but she is so good at being pissed and crazy. It delights me. Moving on...I first heard the song on a Drake mixtape my brother had. I loved it and hoped it would be on his album that was released last year. (I will not go into the slight disappoint that Drake's full studio album was to me. I liked it but he could have done SO much more with it.) So imagine my surprise several months later to hear Jaime not Drake singing it. But hey, I can't fault Drizzy for making that money. Besides, everyone knows songwriters and producers, not the artist, make all of the money. And I'm hoping that this latest foray into songwriting is a sign that Drake is not letting Weezy F. Baby (F is for FAIL) ruin his career but rather he's taking the reins and making the smart moves on his own.

I'll let you decide on your own which you prefer. Like I said, I'm a Drake fan so I'm sure I'm a little biased. But in my humble opinion, Drake simply does the song better. 

There is some mild language, so if you're at work, put on your headphones.

I can FULLY receive this from Drake. From Jamie "My cd has so many rapper cameos that I am a guest artist on my own project" Foxx, I cannot.
