I recently got “Go!” by Common and “Get By” by Talib Kweli off iTunes and I’m really liking them. I believe, though am too lazy to prove, that Kanye West produced both tracks. If I had to rate them, “Get By” would definitely top that particular list, but they are both great. Erin recently got the new Black-Eyed Peas CD: Monkey Business and I have to say it is fantastic. I was never a huge fan, but I enthusiastically declare the album The Shit.

By the way, I really liked The College Dropout so I’m listening with more-than-average interest to the first dribblings off Kanye’s new album (“Late Registration“). The first single is pretty OK; don’t hate it but I’m waiting to see whether it’s going to be worth a purchase. I’ll report back to once I have some more info.
