Cee Lo Green – It’s Ok (Video)

Dude’s got lots of reasons to smile these days. Guessing by the Grammy noms, in mainstream eyes he’s arrived. But those in the know now he’s been a standout rapper/singer for years now.

He’s patented this brand of throwback soul/R&B that soccer moms dig and doesn’t come across like mainstream pandering. Love how he’s been able to carve out a place for himself and on his own terms.

Miguel – All I Want Is You ft. J.Cole

Simple Bumpy. New R&B on that smoothed out tip. Is it just me or does this vibe like a reworking of an long lost UB40 joint?

Charlie Wilson – There Goes My Baby (Video)

Posted in film, funky snob, music, words on July 5th, 2009 by urbanguy

Charlie Wilson doesn’t get the props that he should for holding it down for so long and influencing today’s R&B.

His latest, Uncle Charlie, will probably stay under the radar but does have a couple of cool joints such as this one (written, incidentally, by Babyface and Calvin Richardson).

Props go to Snoop as well for continuing to show Charlie some love.

Tank: Maybe I deserve (video)

Posted in general on June 17th, 2009 by urbanguy

This was on the radio today. Was never a huge fan of Tank (really? Tank?) but this song and vid was okay for a top ten 10 R&B single in 2001.

He was going for this sensitive thug vibe I guess. By 2001, Tank simply arrived at the tail end of the 90s urban R&B era…too late. Not sure I’d call his career a smash success but he did have his moments in the sun…however fleeting.
