LOL!!! at the very end I thought he was gonna say “…and the Jonas Brothers” when he said “Joni Mitchell”…wow…great insight though. I miss Dilla’s music for reals though…

yall dont know bout joni mitchell? jonas brothers is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear that first syllable “jone” in a list of great musicians and bands? i wouldn’t admit to that…

Common is a great speaker. He just communicates very well, which lends to his amazing ability to express himself over tracks

you want his e-harmony account or something? Straighten up bro

@Spank: What was wrong with Sane’s comment? Totally unnecessary for you to tell him to “straighten up” for making an intelligent and thoughtful comment. Grow up bro.

let’s see…I’m a 24 yr. old, white, male whose parents listened to nothing but Christian heavy metal throughout the late 80’s and 90’s…I’m sorry I’m a product of my upbringing…

we gotta cut it out with the negativity though…I stumbled on this site a few months ago and have been loving all the videos and comments but lately it seems like everyone is on edge or something…I actually feel bad for making my smartass comment about my upbringing but I think it’s relevant…

Dilla Days –
